Robert and the Disappearing Blog.

Check out Robert's blog (use our LINKS service) and there's about a 50% chance that you'll see this...

You've got to give it to Robert for one reason - it confuses the shit out of The Curmudgeon.
The Curmudgeon's first question is always, "Who upset Robert?"

What he fails to understand is that Robert operates his blog like any good Roman Catholic should.
He simply follows a series of steps:
  1. He writes a post.
  2. He reads it and realises that, like anything touched by original sin, it is not perfect.
  3. He confesses his sin (of writing an imperfect post).
  4. He receives absolution by deleting the post.
A sign was offered to The Curmudgeon a few years back when he wrote his now famous post about a chair blowing over.


He claimed to have survived a storm. A storm where a piece of outside furniture blew over.
Well, I have news for The Curmudgeon...

THAT'S NOT MUCH OF A STORM!

If The Curmudgeon were a man of God he would have seen his sin of writing a post about basically nothing and deleted it.

This sort of post happens quite frequently at The Curmudgeon Inc. We, at The Bass Bagging Hexagram, have a built in safety device against writing pointless posts or erring on religious matters.

He's called Angry Jesus.

Angry Jesus
All those Curmudgeons need to make more regular visits to Angry's blog. That way they might be saved. At least we readers would be saved from pointless blog posts.

Yeah, I don't know why I asked that as I don't care.
Robert's blog construction is crap and his posts are puerile.

Hello Mr Positive. Aren't you the author of the 'windows in my house' series. Yes, that's right, it was a series.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

"Fuck you" comments don't get forgiven.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Well, you were questioning the validity of his family naming rights.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Woof woof!

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Sit boy. Well, Robert actually gave a valid answer. I see that one as:
Robert 1 - The Curmudgeon Inc. 0.

As I said before -" I don't care."

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

"As I said before -" I don't care.""

But of course I do.

To copy Richard's usual over-analysing a 'storm in a teacup' situation I'll say that Robert's overreaction was bizarre.
I remember when Richard asked the very same question a couple of years ago Robert didn't come out with the explanation that his step-son had changed his name by Deed Poll (not 'depole' which is something that Hitler tried to do back in 1939) and that his step-son's name was registered as Prowse.
Hey, I don't care what their surnames are - I've got some Prendergasts, Ramsbottoms, Copperplates and probably some Rawhinis in my family tree. Who gives a shit, but as Robert got so agitated about it I suggest that this is a pretty unusual course of events. Normally extended family as in In-Laws don't go about changing their names unless that name is Rockefeller or Rothschild.

Yes, I know that this will stir things up a bit so bring it on.

What I won't do in a comment on a Post though is write "Fuck you". I'll reserve that for a phone call or a face-to-face meeting.

Tra il dire e il fare c'e` di mezzo il mare. How hard is it to say, "I scuffed up there."?
When did I ask that question? Is there a post?

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Yes, but the sea has nothing to do with it. Your comment (s) was on one of your Posts with Robert's comments followed by your comment but unfortunately you deleted all of your old Posts.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Conjecture then.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

No, fact.
I'm surprised that someone with as good a memory as you have chooses not to rememb... oh, that's right, you are getting on a bit.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Grammar old fella!
