Blogging Contest

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, Ellen DeGeneres:

Really Funny Class Notes, the spin-off site that continues to support our sagging egos and protect our derelict attitudes from the dose of reality that would bring us off cloud nine, has challenged FCN to a blogging challenge, of sorts. This contest will pit our dozen readers against their 8,368. The goal is to "out blog" each other. Not to "out bug" each other - we aren't pest exterminators (at least not yet) - but to publish more quality content relating to whatever topics you, the faithful FCN few, submit.

Beginning today and, well, ending today, you will have an opportunity to choose a topic for our next three days of blogging (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). The best way to submit your topic is to put it down in our comment section. There you can squabble with other readers of what the best topic should be and when we check the site at an ungodly hour tomorrow morning you guys will hopefully have come to some kind of consensus. If not, we will make like the officials at last night's Spurs-Hornets game and toss a coin.

rFCN will then compete with us to produce the best content about whatever you, the readers, desire. Adam Smith argued that competition produces the best product; over the duration of this week we will rigorously test that hypothesis.

When you are the underdog it can be very difficult to summon the gumption to fight on and be competitive. The giant looks like a powerful and very muscular Philistine and your petty smooth stones look like the pebbles they are, despite the leather sling from which they will be thrown. But enough about Stephen Curry. At FCN, we embrace our underdog role with every ounce of our derelict selves. rFCN is now the established site and Robert is a muscular Goliath (although not a Philistine; we wouldn't stoop to calling you that, bro!). This challenge is our big chance, our High School Musical moment. We can turn the spotlight into something grand or let it go like the sunset we all missed last night. The choice is ours and, by extension, yours.

So go. Stop reading this introductionarialism garbage and skip over to the comment section. Then tune in the rest of this week to see how miserably we fumble your requests.

fashion.

yes, i would love to see you young men post on fashion. clothing fashion. when a certain male friend of mine commented that he could remember which spring an event occurred because of the jeans he remembered wearing at the time and proceeded to name the exact brand and style of the jeans; i knew boys must have something to say on fashion.

so, i challenge you fellows of the male persuasion to write about fashion.

Fashion AND makeup.

fat, weight

Anna said...

I totally agree. Fashion would be fantastic

Mrs. L said...

evolution - pros & cons
math - purposes, uses of, needs for, etc.
time management - making your brief time here count - doing what really matters

Athletics and Homeschooling -- should they ever meet?

AMRunner said...

I'm liking fashion or weight, but I think we've gotta come to some kind of consensus. Fashion and fat have my vote...

anon2 said...

They've already written about fat/weight and makeup...so the only popular topic left is fashion.

Personally, I'd like to see them write about the Bachelor TV show :) I'm sure there's a lot they could do with that...

you can call me batman said...

totally fashion. that would be awesome!!! lol.

roadrunner said...

fat is a perfect topic I think

Katie said...

I second that. Write about fat. Oh, and my vote counts as two -- doesn't it, F?

Frankly, I need tips on how a homeschooler gets a hot date. However, fashion would be cool too.

big mo said...

hey! this is cool, the fashion thing catching on...

though if you're posting several times, does that mean several topics? if so, i'll second the time-management one.

like ephesians says, "look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise because the days are evil."

big mo said...

by the way, fat is pathetic. Fat sucks. Don't do that one

mumble's the word said...

I think you should write an outraged opinion on the issue of illegal giraffe trafficking. Hundreds of giraffes have been rescued from abuse, having been brought into the country by people who want exotic pets. Someone should do something! (But not me.)Or or or! The dangers of showercurtains. Those things are vicious.

Topics:
-Junior College
-Male Hair Styles In The Media
-Joel Olsteen
-What Marked The Official End Of Hollywood's Creativity?

big mo said...

i'd like to politely ask whoever is stealing my name to stop.

the post in protest of "fat" as a topic was not mine.

Lazrmagnt said...

It seems as if FCN has a few more than 12 readers... just needed a good topic for commenting on to bring them all out.
