why can't i be you?

So singeth The Cure here in my office this morning. Truth be told, however, I hardly ever ask myself this question, mainly because I'm not interested in being you. No offense: I'm sure it's awesome being all you all the time and everything. But, the time I spend wishing I was another person is pretty much expended entirely on wanting to trade places with the Brawny Man. O, to be so suave.

(Link via RWS. Both the Pre-Made and Custom options are to be admired. Incidentally, for those who have access to the magic bridge separating BlogWorld and WiscWorld, doesn't the Brawny Man bear at least a passing resemblence to the pseudonymous Mr. Madison over at Columnist Manifesto*?)

* Who, incidentally incidentally, has a great photo with his post this morning.

i wonder if you can get paid for sending your readers to the Brawny Man page? or perhaps, suit them for non-compensation (since inevitably most of your readers will click on the link, like me)? lol

How did you end up with a link that asks me if I want to make that post a memory?

Someone said that this kind of thing is "viral marketing," I assume because it "replicates" itself across the interweb. I don't care. I love the Brawny Man. Especially when he is handling spiders.

RWS: I couldn't figure out what was the permalink for one of your posts. Oh well, at least you aren't on Xanga.

That's most hilarious thing I've seen in a long time.

I'd date the Brawny Man.

It's my journal layout. For some reason only some of the layouts have "link" links on the entry template; I don't know why. But if you go to "read comments," that URL is generally the permanent one.

LJ may be the blogger ghetto, but I think Xanga must be living in a van down by the river.

Whatever. Brawny Man and I will always have Paris.

i think "virile marketing" might be more appropriate in the case of Brawny Man. rwoooowr!
