Free Bacon!

Did I get your attention?

Today's the day.

I know you've all been waiting for it.

Today we launch the very first bacon-flavoured blog on the interwebs.



Well, that's what the promotional pitch says anyway.  The Parody Files relaunches today with a new look, a new format and five - count 'em - five fabulous, funny, misfit bloggers.  Of course I'm one of them otherwise why would you think I'd spend so much time promoting it.  We'll each be posting one day a week, Monday through Friday.  Who are we?

Oliver Clozoff (All of her...clever, get it?) owns the site and is our Editor In Chief.  He's a real stinker.  Or was a chief technologist at Stinker industries.  He's the one with the bacon.

Derek the Intern comes out of his mom's basement long enough to post once a week when he's not busy over at Audible Underwear.  Derek's the token geek among us.  Better him than me.


When Liam James Leaven isn't living up to the Parody Files motto of being the most fire-spewing blog in the universe, he's usually hanging out over at The Humor Books Blog.  We won't get into which end the fire spews out of.  You'll have to drop over to the Parody Files and judge for yourself. Watch out he doesn't bend over in your general direction!


The softer sex is represented by Ashley Garmany, a 20-something currently enduring a quarter life crisis.  He dating life is at such an apex she's currently thinking of post-graduate work in a convent.  Ashley hangs her hat, and the rest of her clothes, at twentyoneofseven when she's not sharing the detailsof her hattered life at the Parody Files.


And then there's yours truly, the old guy nonamedufus, an anonymous boomer - generationally and, at my age after all that bacon, indigestionally.  Yep, another outlet in the growing dufus empire where I share my pithy comentary.  That's with a "t" and an "h", okay?


So come on over and join us at The Parody Files.  It's a funny place, with enough bacon for everyone.


Kevin...the other Bacon


If you're looking for some fresh bacon...er, ah...dufus content you can find it here at the Parody Files, where I just posted it yesterday.  Try it.  You'll like it.

Me-Me: Get your butt over there. It's shaping up as a cool place to get your humour fix.
Don said…
Great! Thanks for the heads up. I'll check 'er out!

Don: It was the bacon, wasn't it?
Leeuna said…
The only thing better than humor is bacon...and we can get them BOTH in the same place?? Now that's the real deal.

Leeuna: And there's more fire-spewing going on over there than anywhere else on the internet. May have something to do with the bacon.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
