(Today I received from a brokerage firm an email with news about Treasury yields, employment data, crude oil supplies, a Federal Reserve meeting etc.  The accompanying CYA boilerplate was so classic that I couldn't resist adapting it for the blog, changing only a very few words to disguise the company and to adapt the sense to the blogosphere.)

More at the link.  Today, btw, is the sixteenth blogiversary of The Presurfer, which I have been visiting essentially since I started surfing the web.   Those of you who maintain blogs of your own might stop by Gerard's site today to congratulate him on his remarkable longevity.

Today's other blogiversary - and also the sixteenth, belongs to..

... Madame Jujujive's Everlasting Blort, which today offers the discovery of three poison Skittles, and a gif of this totally appropriate video  to celebrate her sixteen years of blogging:

Everlasting Blort has its own, classically eclectic, disclaimer:

All Natural, Fast Acting MeepZorp.Com is intended for grown-up use.

Everything in, on, over, under, linked, winked or alluded to on the meepzorp.com is intended for grown-up use.

This DOES NOT mean there is naked giggle-giggle nasty stuff here. This just means we are sick of looking at you damn kids. And you're ruining the lawn, for fuck's sake. This means if you are not a grown up, you must


That, or produce, prior to viewing the site, a certified, notarized letter of parental/guardian permission specifically indemnifying meepzorp.com, its hereditaments and appurtanances, successors and heirs, officers, executives, middle managers, engineers, secretaries, janitorial and cafeteria staff inclusive of the immediate families thereof against any liability arising in the event of any event whatsoever.


  1. :-) you forgot the mandatory check box that says that you have read the EULA for this blog. :-)


  2. "The information and services contained herein are intended only for individual humans with a modicum of common sense..."

    Well, that leaves me out. It was lovely visiting but I guess I should go. =^(

  3. Damn, you scared me. Usually shit like this precedes a messy law suit then implosion, either because you lost, or won but you're thoroughly disgusted.

  4. I've always had a disclaimer on the "Welcome" page of my blog. It isn't so verbose, it basically welcomes comments but states that my blog is not an open forum. It seems to have worked, I don't often get bothered by trolls, on those few occasions when I've had some, I've referred the trolls to it and they go away.

  5. Your page is a veritable cornucopia of fascinating subjects.
    Keep it up!!

  6. I feel pretty well covered using my horoscope and Dear Abby in conjunction with this blog to cover most of my big decisions about life. So far I have not ended up in prison or a psychiatric ward, but I am also no closer to a comfortable retirement. Maybe I read the Tarot cards wrong.

  7. blorty smooches to you for your very kind birthday shout-out!
