The Week's Rejected Blog Post Ideas

1. Why Obama Should Totally Grow an Afro in Time for the Inauguration.

2. Marinka's Guide To Commenting on Blog Posts: I Rate Comments.

3. Looking At Menopause: OMG, I forgot to have an abortion!

4. Save Your Marriage! Instead of Picking Celebrities for the People You Can Sleep With And Have Immunity List, Why Not Pick a Neighbor or a Co-Worker? Because, statistically, that's who it will be!

6. Blog Contest! Win a Lap Dance from Marinka! (Second place: two lap dances from Marinka!)

7. I Haven't Seen Friend John All Week and I am Out of Blog Fodder.

8. Friend John called to suggest that we make a Martha Stewart Gingerbread House with the Kids. Step One: Look through favorite architectural books and magazines for favorite buildings.

Number 1 was pretty funny. You could always have a gingerbread mud hut!

These are all excellent. But I'd like to see Marinka rate comments. Would you rate comments from your own blog or others? Or your own comments on other blogs? This could be taken in so many different directions... I expect a full pictoral of the gingerbread mud hut.

Oh God, can you imagine if he showed up for the inauguration with an afro and all that shit? That would be so totally funny.

I am on my knees, begging you to write a post about this...

I love those old photos of him.

They still have kooky pens? I once had a pen that was attached to a straw, so you could drink your milk and do your homework at the same time.

Please don't rate comments. Another blog I read has comment of the day, and I never win. It makes me feel all inferior.

And I so think that you should pick neighbors and friends for the list, because then the person in the relationship who said "Let's have a list" is all worried that you have a list of people you know that you would sleep with given the chance. That's the key to a happy marriage.

I'm voting for exploring all aspects of #4. It could even be a three-part series.

(This comment sucks. You're probably going to rate it really low. Damn it.)

Exactly why were #2 and #3 rejected?

I want to know about this rating comment business because I'm pretty fucking competitive.

I prefer tepees.
Also a rejected blog post: Kittens: Furry little balls of fun or future murderers of mice?

I love the Blog Contest idea. Sounds cool. Next time I am in NY we should do a meet-up. I could get my prize in person. LOL

Uh, that sounds creepy. I am totally joking - about the lap dance, not the meetup. Meeting up will be cool. LOL

How about a blog on watching Barak in his afro being sworn in in a Gingerbread Mud Hut while getting two lap dances from Martha Stewart and Courtney Cox...?
