Hell, I Wouldn't Comment Either

Thanks to Christopher Blosser for updating my blog. Unfortunately, though, I have the new-style comment boxes that require fellow blowhards to enter a password and identifier from a menu of omnivorous corporate data hogs.

"This blog does not allow anonymous comments. Please enter the RFID number Google has implanted under your skin, your Google password, your Google social security number, Google date of birth, Google bank routing number and tell Google a little about yourself. That's a good minion."

When did Google get taken over by Nigerian scammers?

"Google is run by Cynthia Okore, wife of the late General Okore. Read General's tragic plane accident here. Google wishes to give you many moneys to distribute to needy causes in your country with commission for yourself. Google's attorneys require the RFID number Google has implanted under your skin, your Google password, your Google social security number, Google date of birth, Google bank routing number and tell Google a little about yourself. Yours in whatever new age fad we have displayed this week."

Soon there'll be a voice-recognition comment system run by GoogleSkype, or GoogleAT&T:

"Gracias por llamar Google, la localizaciĆ³n del Internet para todas sus necesidades de la realidad. Para proceder en espaƱol, ahora presione 1."

"Mi dankas vin pro vokanta Google, Interreto loko malgrau via realajo bezonas. Se vi volas procedi En Esperanto, gazetaro 2 hodiau."

"Thank you for calling Google, the Internet location for all your reality needs. If you wish to proceed in English, press 3 now."
BEEEE!
"Thank you for calling Google, the Internet location for all your reality needs. Please enter the twenty-digit RFID number Google has implanted under your skin, followed by the pound sign.

Google did not understand your last entry. Please try again before we cancel all your credit cards. Enter your Google password, your Google social security number, Google date of birth, Google bank routing number and tell Google a little about yourself, followed by the pound sign."

Welcome back!

Hey! You started blogging again and didn't tell me! Not that I technically had a right to know! And you're making me overuse exclamation points!
