My New Favorite Blog 2008, Round 3 Lower Bracket: Pairings 33-36

Let round three begin!

33. Mimi says vs. A Haiku For No One
Mimi thinks that kids shouldn't need to put on their St. George's cross underwear and recite the pledge of allegiance to be considered patriotic. A reasonable thought, however, I think that kids should have to do something to help shape their patriotism. Like in America we could have a "President Hunt" where we hide little figurines of the Presidents around, and each one is worth different amount of points. The kid that finds the most points worth of presidents then can wear underwear made of the flag. On A Haiku there are two new haikus, my favorite one is called 1999 Saturn Station Wagon:

My boss drive a heap.
Just what does that say about
My career prospects?

I think that it doesn't matter too much what a persons drives, although it could be an indicator that the boss is not going to be apt to hand out money.
Winner: A Haiku For No One

34. Intergalactic Gladiator vs. Cheezy's Blog
The Intergalactic Gladiator has made his way to Mount Rushmore in an attempt to fight the terrorists that lurk with in the heads of the presidents. But without knowing it he tipped off the terrorists that he was looking for him. Cheezy sounds like he had a rocking good time at a concert. The band was called The Jesus and Mary Chain, and I have never heard of them, but I guess the crowd liked them because they chanted "I wanna die" at the end of the show... which is a good thing... right? Also Cheezy points us in the direction of a sperm donation program that will give you concert tickets in exchange for sperm. I don't know what to think of that...
Winner: Intergalactic Gladiator

35. Will o' the Wisp... vs. Not just nouns & verbs
Julie reports that religious and faith organizations contribute more than £100m in economic benefits to Wales. Which I believe is a good thing. She also mentions the story of a woman from Ness City, Kansas that lived on the toilet for two years. And from what I know of people from Ness that sounds about right. Melanie just had a birthday, and asked if she should have lemon cake with lemon frosting, or yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Lemon cake, no doubt. She also seems like she is very happy with her life and enjoys the 'little moments' of raising her kid.
Winner: Not just nouns & verbs

36. Present Simple vs. Falling On A Bruise
Badaunt (Present simple), which after reading the blog posts this time around, should be read as Bad Aunt not Bada Unt, is visiting Wellington. She met up with (as she found out) a non-homicidal friend from the internet, so she still has her head attached to her neck. She also under the guise of being a "Good Aunt" got her very thoughtful nephew to shoot himself in the butt with a water gun. The full story is actually quite good. Lucy, on Falling on a bruise, talks about swearing oaths to things, like Brittan, or the Queen, or your TV dinner, and she also penned an oath that can be recited. There are also seven new sins that are declared by the Pope that we must obey. My favorite new sin is to deal drugs. Does alcohol in wine count as a drug?
Winner: Present Simple
