H.G. Wells was a blogger.

Long time readers (those of you are still mentally stable) many recall this image which used to grace the sidebar of this blog.

Here’s an example.

While H.G. Wells may not have been a blogger, he knew them intimately. He knew the psyche of the type of person who wrote cranky letters to the editors of scientific journals. Or maybe just wrote mean letters to the local penny press. Who is more invisible than the anonymous blogger? Like the Invisible Man, the anonymous blogger blows up institutions, metaphorically. He uses words but the effect is the same. What put this into perspective was one of those internet “Which character are you?” quizzes. This one used Universal horror monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman, The Invisible Man, etc.) I took the quiz and got The Invisible Man, and the accompanying graphic put it all in focus.

That sums up bloggers in my book. Of course, the “genius-level smart” and “extraordinarily clever” parts may exist only the blogger’s minds, but I say the “kind of a dick” part is right on the mark.

Take it from a blogger.

Imponderable #123: Vancouver

Well, isn’t that special. (Cliché but expected Church Lady joke? Check. Now let’s move on.)

Be glad I didn’t post an uncensored picture. I found a couple online and Satan’s shlong is pretty disturbing. It is more spiky than you’d expect.

Anywho, (no, that’s not a typo, I meant “anywho”) it says that “The appearance of the statue came as a surprise to just about everyone as it was not commissioned by city authorities.” So in other words, no one would have been surprised had the city authorities commissioned it. In which circle of Hell is their city located?

I found a few articles on this story, but I posted this one solely for the headline “Nude Satan statue erected overnight, shocking citizens.” You don’t find puns like that on the NBC Nightly News!

I can understand how a statue of Satan with an erection might be considered just a tad scandalous. And that’s the problem with Satanists: they just don’t try to fit in. If they really had to, they should have put up a statue of Satan that no one would object to.

Why can’t Satanists be more fun? The question is Imponderable.

The Sad Death of Ralph Kramden (Classic Repost Numero Uno!)

Believe it or not, this is the very first repost of 2014! After yesterday’s death of Fred Mertz, I figured this deserved another showing.
