i know there are people who lurk out there. i even know that some of them are quite famous and powerful.
some of my friends know these people and they ask me occasionally if i know how badass i am to have these people as readers, but im not impressed.
even the popular and famous need to read something on their internet screens.
hello, all of you: friends, foes, famous, not so famous, and the ignored.
i can understand why certain people would want to leave anonymous comments. some people have an awful lot to be ashamed about. some people play politics regarding what blogs they read and what they dont. some people are concerned by what their friends and associates would think, gads, if they signed their name to a comment on the busblog, or lord help them, agreed with me publicly.
what i can’t understand is why people would leave anonymous negative comments to me regarding my attack on Peeps.
my happy easter photo essay is one of my favorites.
in it i denounced Christians for allowing their most holy religious holiday to be taken over by chocolate treats, jelly beans, and the easter bunny. i question them for giving their children peeps and letting the american culture water down the day that their messiah rose from the dead after paying for our sins.
and i did it by telling the story of Angus Young, my favorite guitarist of all time, who, like Jesus, also had four brothers. I asked if Angus would appreciate Quiet Riot music on his birthday instead of AC/DC anthems.
as a Christian I would have thought that other Christians would agree with me, but in the two and a half years I have gotten a variety of negative reaction from certain Christians.
last night’s being the most disturbing.
not only was there an anonymous comment that denounced me, calling me dumb, telling me that he didnt understand the Peeps point, but then went over to my friend and yours, danielle’s blog, and told me that she shouldnt be friends with me anymore, infact she should shoot me in the face!
fortunately danielle is a typical sagatarius and you cant tell those people to do anything, so i type to you from the cockpit of chopper one with no bullet holes in my lovely face
but i wonder if the Peeps industry wasn’t behind the couplet of comments that have infested this blog and danielle’s?
i never said that Peeps should be outlawed. Hell, make Jesus Peeps. make manger Peeps. make jenna fucking jamison peeps for all i care, but dont threaten to shoot me in the face because of a photo essay.
that you admit to not understand.
it will not suprise me if one day i do get killed by a gun + bullet + idiot, but i doubt that it will happen over a misunderstanding surrounding Peeps.
and if i do go down that way,
promise me that you will avenge my wrongful death
with an unrelenting barrage of Pez.
