Some jerk said it is always better to give than receive.
That jerk obviously was never the recipient of a lamp with the Serenity Prayer etched into the glass. I received one of those as a high school graduation present from a boy I dated for two months, and it was not at all awkward.
People do seem to be in the giving mood. Every blog I click on seems to be giving something away to its loyal readership.
The Byronic Man and Jules of Go Jules Go have created a Christmas misery contest where the lucky recipient wins a custom-designed sheet set.
Madame Weebles gave her readers the gift of viewing her face as well as her marvelous middle finger.
Le Clown gave away his magnificent™ facial hair.
I feel I should be giving away something too, but what do I have to offer?
My facial hair is paltry although I do have a single hair that grows out of my neck and possesses the wirey resilience of a pube. Is that something people want?
Okay. I can’t really make anything although I did draw the turd picture for my Turd of the Week™ segment.
Just to be clear, I am a full-grown adult.
I suppose I could glue this image onto a roll of toilet paper for some lucky reader.
I really have little else. I am getting my tonsils removed in a few days, but Hugo has already staked claim to them for some nefarious purposes.
Hugo…hmmm. People seem to love them some Hugo. I’ve got it!
Okay, I’m pretty famous or I create the illusion of fame by sending myself fan letters. How would you, dear reader, like to appear in this blog space in an interview conducted by me and Hugo?
All you have to do is give a reason why you think you are worthy of a Hugo interview in the comments.
Hugo, no. Please don’t do that. That is completely unnecessary. Just a simple comment is fine. I will attempt to interview everyone who responds, not in the same blog post because that can get kind of lengthy, but over the course of 2013.
Remember, I used to work as a journalist so I’m pretty good. I once was assigned to cover the local Memorial Day parade and I asked such questions like “So…why did you come to the parade?”
Expect that level of professionalism.
Your interview along with a write up and link to your blog will appear on Speaker7 to the delight of the human and puppet world.
Hugo, anything to add?
The deadline to respond is Dec. 17.
