Why: Someone's Birthday!
How: Well, when a man loves a woman very much...
In honor of one of the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human beings I've ever known in my life, I present this special Birthday Blog Edition....
This is Your (Well, part of your) Life!
Scott, you've lived a very exciting and thrill packed life on the internets, and we've collected some of your most cherished memories and greatest feats together to celebrate your Birthday!
Do you remember THESE words?
Yes, it's the very first post of your good friend, founder of World O'Crap, eventual co-blogger, co-author, and Supermodel/Astronaut/Spy, SZ!There are millions of other blogs out there, clamoring for your attention. Why read mine? Here's why: because my blog is going to be about things we can all relate to. You know, cheesy movies, annoying politicans, weird advertising, Ann Coulter. And MORE!
In those days, you were a beloved and enthusiastic commenter, but one day, the fates smiled upon you, and SZ asked you, "Scott, with your snark the most, won't you write a guest post?" And changed your life forever!
But that was just the beginning of a long, loyal partership between you and SZ. Remember the second post you contributed??Roy Moore Draws Support of Rock-Worshipping CultsBy World O'Crap Special Correspondent Scott C.The recent debate over Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore’s monument to the Ten Commandments has exposed and to some degree exacerbated the tensions that exist between mainstream and fundamentalist Christianity. At the same time, however, the 5,300 pound cause celebre has also served to unite several previously hostile religious movements."Initially, church elders declined to take a position on this controversy," said Ronald Zietlow, Chief Mameluke of the Igneous Brotherhood. "We mistakenly believed that Chief Justice Moore and his followers worshipped an omniscient, omnipresent, but non-corporeal diety, and that the granite monument was merely symbolic.
Super President to Karl Rove:"Trim Your Bush!"
1960s-Era Superhero Sues White House over "DC 9/11: Time of Crisis"--by Wo'C Saturday Morning Correspondent, Scott C.In the long annals of celebrity-on-celebrity litigation, from Vampira vs. Elvira to O’Reilly vs. Franken, to Haagen Daz vs. Frusen Gladje, there may be nothing to compare with the brute star power of the lawsuit filed this morning in New York. Super President vs. Bush Administration, et al pits two of the most powerful combatants ever to meet in Federal Court: James Norcross, Former United States President and retired superhero, and George W. Bush, current chief executive and jumpsuit model. The trigger for the suit was last night’s broadcast of the Showtime telefilm DC 9/11: A Time of Crisis.
"He’s stealing my positions," complained Norcross as he conducted several reporters on a tour of his Presidential Library. "Flying around the country fighting evil, dressing up in a costume, changing his molecular structure to granite or ozone—those are all issues associated with my administration."
In your partnership with SZ, you managed to put NeoCons and RightWingers (who were really WrongWingers) in their respective places, all with the most hilarious and gentle of snarkiness. And thus, the juggernaut of World O' Crap was launched, full speed ahead.The former President concedes that many young people may not remember his brief tenure in the White House, which lasted from 1967 to 1968, nor the widely beloved Super President Theme Song. with which he opened each press conference.
You set up a domain name and a home on the internets, continuing the tradition of gently putting certain people in their place, documenting the many animal rescues which SZ accomplished, and despite all of that, you and SZ still managed to co-author one of the most, "Hilarious. A must for bad movie lovers and MST3k Fans" books, a book which is "simply above the rest and constantly astonishes with tangents that pay off one after another in funnier and funnier ways", Better Living Through Bad Movies (which is still available through Amazon and other fine purveyors of...fineness).
Of course, your online life hasn't been without its trials. Remember the War on Christmas posts, which brought out the crazy in the Marley Brothers? Or that time we got hacked and never recovered? Of course you do. But did you let that stop you from bringing the snark? Nope! You picked yourself up, dusted your keyboard off, and started all over again on blogspot, going so far as to copy and paste original posts from SZ's salon blog and the virtually hosted blog.
You don't give up the snark, and you don't give in to the enemy. And that's what makes you extraordinary. And that, Scott is....Your Life (Online. So far.)!
