Dr. Elizabeth K├╝bler-Ross was a huge Hank Senior fan? I'm sensin' a theme here, Short Guy. Maybe you should start comparing Ball & Chain to Nickelback, or Sum 41 or something. But for cripes' sake, avoid Gary Glitter.

4th Dwarf, are you posting on behalf of Conch Shell?

4th Dwarf said...

By "on behalf of" do you mean "at her request"? Which would mean that CS had taken steps to ensure completion of the task she had committed herself to?

If so, no.

Conch Shell said...

Oops. Still formatting a decent excuse.

4th Dwarf said...

Here's a good one for you to format from the Excuse-O-Mat:

I got so obsessed by tracking down the sinister forces that control our lives that I could hardly think-- and then my water heater exploded. I am so much of a space cadet sometimes! Anyway, I hope our TV stays broken this week.

Conch Shell said...

I am tortured by remorse. You've reminded me-- oh, it cuts me to the quick-- that I have failed you, utterly and absolutely. It would be more than just for you to drop me like a maggotty corpse.

coyote said...

Oooooh, no. We couldn't do that, Conch. Way too easy....

Besides, I think we may be witnessing a truly blogworthy clash of titans here -- 4D's obsessive-compulsive-delusions-of-control vs. CS's passive-aggressive-opt-out.

Whaddaya think, crew?

Conch Shell said...

I won't take up any more of your time -- I disgraced my fellow bloggers. No one can be more sorry than I, though I emphasize that I am not a crook but a victim, too. All I can do is solemnly repent, and move forward, sadder but wiser.

Y'know, I've been playin' with that Excuse-O-Mat thingy a bit.

What's interestin' me is that the dead-same format for every excuse that it generates, includes a last sentence in which the confessor suggests suitable amends or penitence. These all are quite harsh.

And I can't help but notice, Conch Shell, ma'am, that you - twice - seem to have redacted that consequence bit.

Perhaps an attempt to squirm away from having to personally face the enormity of your (in)action? Or perhaps to avoid cuing your fellow bloggers' all-too-medieval minds with vengeful ideas?

Just askin'... in the spirit of healing and reconciliation, of course. It would be completely unlike any of us to hold your feet to the fire on this, to the point where they become conch fritters, or anything...
