Okay, sometimes my archives creep me out.

Right now, with my recent switch to Blogger II or whatever is calling it, my archives are completely jacked up. I can no longer link back to a specific post, just a specific day. When I do this, I can only link to the day in question. So if I have five posts that day, tough noogies. One link.

Also, my archives freak me out because:
(A) most of the time I have no recollection of writing the post, and so it sounds like someone I'd sort of agree with, but who I think needs to polish up his grammar.
(B) occasionally I stumble across something in the comments section which blows my mind (such as the time Meco chimed in on my comments).

So I randomly looked at an old post which featured images of both Randy and grimace, and compared the two in the most flattering manner possible. Looking at the comments, I came across the following.

#372 is my nephew. Not trained and no acting experience. He was "discovered" working at Trader Joe's. He received all kinds of compliments by the crew and director for his natural ability when filming this comercial. Just to get it one would ever describe him as "chubby". He's a lean, fit young man and we are all very proud of him.

Obviously Teri didn't know The League is pretty chubby, but I had no idea what she was talking about. So, of course, I had to leap back and see

In December 2004 I had made fun of a kid in a really lousy McDonald's ad. You can read my description of the ad here.

Sweet mother of crap. What else is in there?

But, man, did that post remind me of what an awful, awful commercial Teri's nephew starred in. And clearly I had wanted to forget it. How sad.

You would have thought she knew I was kidding after comparing myself to Ronald and my wife to a Fry Guy.

You don't have to register. Just use the "Other" option. What I dislike is the capthca.

Also, there is a way to link to a certain post. Find the post you want to link and hover over the timestamp. There is the "permanent" link to that post.

Here is an example

chill out, guys. This is all being done in the name of easier readability. I don't plan to have anyone have to register, so don't worry about that. Now cool your jets as I work out the details.
