« Sad Site Of The Day | Main | Elspeth is right »

So there I was

Browsing a blog, as you do. And that led me on to another blog. Where the author said they had recently been here.

Since, up until then, the writer had had some interesting things to say, I thought I'd take a peek at the site.

OMG. I don't think another blogger has gone downhill in my estimation quite so quickly. Now I know that Mercuns are a bit strange at the best of time. And there really isn't much to do in Little Town, Hicksville. And I suppose it's not quite as scary as my previous Sad Site Of The Day but even so…

They cannot be serious, as J McEnroe used to say. A "Plunger Lunger" competition?! With prizes donated by the local hardware store??!! AND an "Uuug-lee Hawaiian Shirt Contest???!!!

And the really scary thing is that more than 130,000 people went to last year's event. The fact that they have a "Parade of Fools" event does seem rather apt.
