What up, turkeys! Entry #170 in the hayouse. I don't suppose I need to tell all of you what we're only 30 entries away from, but here's a little hint: it rhymes with Moulash Fricentennial. I don't know if I ever shared the ideas that were formulated for the Bicentennial, but so far, I'm planning on having a piñata, a sack race, and a pie eating contest. It'll be like a booze-soaked church picnic. Perhaps you think I'm kidding here, but the joke is going to be on you if you show up on April 17th without your piñata stick and pie eating pants.
I don't know if this makes me an idiot or what, but I just realized that there was a search function on this page. It's only taken me a mere 9 months to become familiar with the basic functionality of my site, which is not too shabby. In case you're thinking my inattention applies only to the features, you're totally incorrect. About once a week, I'll start talking about something with someone, only to be interrupted with, "You wrote about that on your site yesterday." I'm always tempted to reply with, "Oh yeah? Well maybe you wrote about it on YOUR site yesterday and I'm just plagarizing you!" I really have no idea what I put on here, largely because I do most of my writing in a Flintstone vitamin-induced haze, so I will ask all of you not to torment me on this point.
But anyway, let's get back to talking about the Bicentennial. Is there anything else that anyone can think of that would make this thing cooler? I'm thinking maybe a celebrity host, but I have no idea what sort of celebrity I could lure with the offer of $7 and a 12 pack of Old Milwaukee, aside from Sherman Hemsley. Maybe some commemorative spitoons? The sky's the limit here, folks. If you have any ideas regarding this, leave them in comments or risk the wrath of the Pickle.Posted by Cody at March 2, 2004 6:15 PM
