way too much fun with spam
As a rule, I don't delete posts, but I did delete Saturday's fish post. The reason is, as you can see, that I've promoted him into the blog template. Yes, this means he'll be with us for quite some time, slowing the page-load speed even further. But it looks as if you'll be able to read what he's saying as the rest of the page does (eventually) come in.

btw, the unflappable Anne Craig has one too, over at Plato Shrimp. She calls me up tonight, tells me she's seeing this really nice guy up there in Seattle, tells me she loves me, and says so where's MY fish? These women, I tell you, they're absolutely shameless. They also know my resistance to this sort of blatant extortion is low-to-non-existent. It was easier to make her one than to listen to the litany of all the things she could blackmail me with if I didn't comply. I am definitely getting too old for this shit. Let's face it, HTML is a young man's game. I've decided to either quit blogging or give up women.

I guess I'll give up women, then.

At any rate, what our fishy's got to say will change often. I'm thinking White House press releases will make much better reading this way. Not to mention various penis/breast enhancement spams mixed in with clips from The Great Books. Mortimer Adler would be proud! The possibilities are, literally, endless.

Today's fishtalk is addressed to Donna Wentworth, lately of Harvard's Berkman Center, and now working at The Eclectic Frottage Foundation. As you can see from the logo, these people take themselves very seriously. It must be some sort of Boston thing. (The lance/flagpole, on the other hand, is a Freudian sort of thing.) Now the reason Donna is my first, let's say, "target of opportunity" is that she sent me mail saying: "Are *you* talking to me? (Said best donning a mohawk, but I am currently sans.)" This is a rather elliptical reference to a) Taxi Driver, whence the first part of what Fish is saying derives, and b) the fish itself, around which we've had some previous truck. But of course I took it as a challenge to push the envelope of impropriety even further. Honk if you love borderlines!

In other news, I am all over Latin fashion. Oh yeah. (See  L I N G E  R I O  catalog strip at left.) Frank will like this one for sure. Not to mention Donna and Halley and Denise and of course Shelley -- hell, scores, nay very hordes, of The Gentler Sex® -- will maybe like it too. You know what they say about there being no accounting for taste. Good thing too. If there were, I'd surely be arrears.

Chris Locke's photos More of Chris Locke's photos

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
