Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Blog Makeover Contest
Do not go gentle into that good blog makeover contest,
Old blogs should burn and rave at Nicky and Mike;
Rage, rage against the dying of politesse.
Though wise bloggers at their end know they are best,
Not Salmon Like The Fish or We Work For Cheese they
Do not go gentle into that good blog makeover contest.
Good bloggers, the last wave by, crying how bright
My punny words and funny pictures invoked laughter,
Rage, rage against the end of this fight.
Other contestants who caught and sang their praises in flight,
I learned, too late, they dissed dufus on their way,
Do not go gentle indeed they slight (me).
Brave words, near libelous, and flung with blinding might
Foul fish, stinky cheese like insults every day
They rage, rage against the dying of their slights.
And you, my readers, you're simply the best,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce votes, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good blog makeover contest
Vote, Vote for dufus. Isn't he the best?
With sincerest apologies to Dylan Thomas (and I do mean sincerest because I sure took significant liberties here with what otherwise is a terrific piece of literature.)
Well folks, this is it. The voting closes at 5pm eastern time Friday. I hope you've enjoyed the three-way smack down Nicky and Mike over at We Work for Cheese, Salmon from Salmon Like the Fish and I have engaged in on each others blogs, at Tribal Blogs on Twitter and on Facebook. I certainly had fun.
More to the point, though, I really hope you'll vote for me here today and again tomorrow to win this thing. Hey, I'm innit to winnit.
Oh, and thanks to all my good buds for playing along, voting, and having a chuckle or two. Regardless of who wins, it's been lots of fun.
"I'm nonamedufus and I approve this last-ditch effort to solicit votes that will win me the Tribal Blogs Extreme Blog Makeover."
