The Views Expressed Here

It was recently brought to my attention that some of the advertising on this blog has not been as understated as one might expect. When I checked back in on the site, I only saw the Obama/Biden ad which I found humorously ironic. But it was not the ad which my friend assured me has been prominently displayed for several days.

He said it was an ad promising introductions to (not double), (not tamale minus the ta) individuals of (neither high nor low) (neither nothern, nor western nor southern) extraction.

If you are wondering about the indirect description above, it is because you are not an algorithm driven ad bot (an ADAB). ADABs never wonder about such things. Specifically, you are not the ADAB which, acting on behalf of one of my relentless commercial promoters, has scoured my site for interesting, unique and marketable terms. So, one must be careful about the breadcrumbs one leaves behind. Consequently, were I to disclaim the ads tempting your clicking finger with sin**e mi*dl* **stern w*me* in explicit terms, I would merely be inviting more of such advertising.

So, if an ad seems a bit too unexpected, know that it is merely an inadvertent bump on the road to profound wealth from blogging. If you don't buy that, I'll spare you the truth which is that a script reviews your (the reader's) browsing history and selects appropriate ads. Feel free to shoot me an email with a description of the objectionable ad and your full name and address.

So maybe you can tailor a few posts to get the bot to place more appropriate ads. Perhaps you could mention certain key words like Bush or Dick or elephant or red states or Ronald Reagan.

So I must now have diabetes and be in the market for some Nike shoes that I can "customize"?

Try using terms corporate America might find appealing: profit, big money, easy money, solvent, and tax break might work.

I like where gorky park was headed with this - how about mentioning the funniest planet of all: Uranus?

It's okay to admit that you've forgotten your password. Just click on the forgotten password link and follow the instructions.

Uranus! Good one! But let's add a technical term. How about: Uranus Hertz.

I once took four slices of bread and put toasted them all to make one giant sandwich. It's sort of like you know how you can hold your fingers up kind of sideways and without looking at the thumb - the thumb wouldn't count for this - you could think of the fingers as the same as the bread. That's how I knew how much toppings and meat and cheese to put on it. I looked at the spaces between the fingers. This is the important part. The spaces are the fillings - the fingers are the bread. I do this a lot when I have to count things where it's just as important to know the parts in between. I learned this trick a long time ago and it's kind of stuck with me all these years. I like your website.
