The year may have brought a European debt crisis, a worse US housing crisis, cracked G20 heads in Toronto, regular crackheads in Vancouver, debt fatigue for families, Depends for Mark Carney, living dead in the Lower Mainland, turmoil in the orange guy’s shorts and Lady Gaga’s exploding nipples, but here at The Greater Fool we seriously, soberly and earnestly debated the issues of our times.
Well, almost. As usual there was a coterie of realtors in drag, Garth-bating neocons, sanctimonious prudes, closet racists and fascists and hippies, aliens, peed-off humourless economists and people who know everything. The good news is 69,720 comments have been published and 432 were incinerated. This year six naughty blog dogs humped, clawed and bite their way to jail and were banned for varying amounts of time. Three returned to active duty, two were pardoned but then appointed to the Senate and one’s still in the pound.
Over 2010 the monthly visits to this pathetic blog increased by a third, and there are now almost 5,000,000 of them a year. On Sundays only 10,000 visits take place, a number which increases by 50% on Mondays. It ain’t Facebook, but what the hell.
However, this disgusting, Cialis-deprived site was apparently potent enough to deserve a few DOS attacks, one of which was devastating enough to fry a few servers and nuke a large part of the archive. Like a coackroach, however, the blog crawled dusty but unbowed from the charred ruins, happy to continue infecting the nation.
Now, one of the pack, InvestorsFriend, has come up with a suggestion:
GREATEST FOOL OF ALL FOR 2010???
Garth how about for tomorrow or the next day we devote the Blog here to having the blog dogs vote on the Greatest Fool of ALL for 2010?
There will be no shortage of nominees from among the many fools and complete nutbars who troll this page. I will be dissappointed if I don’t get a few votes myself.
We can also vote in polictians and realtors, though it will be more fun to vote for blog dogs.
Let’s bring it on!!!
And the Nominees Are???
So, here ya go. Will it be the gold-licking Bullion Bunny? The ever-irritating Nostradamus? That prissy little man-hater Brynn? Big nutcase Big Lebowski? That damn fluoride guy?
So many whackjobs. So little time.
Over to you. Fetch.
