i love you, you love me

I figured out why I attract a ridiculous amount of oppositional haters.

It's the tagline.

The Gentle Art of Making Enemies has become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Perhaps I should change it to Bunnies! Kitties! Hamtoro! or I Want To Be Your Best Friend or All You Need Is Love.

But that would just take the fun out of everything, wouldn't it?



Nah... unsolicited hugs to strangers are a violation of personal space and could be construed as sexual assault.

I'm thinking something like "Insert your own favorite non-offensive image, because that's the only way to ensure that I don't pollute your cultural diversity by foisting my own, equally important, non-offensive image upon you."

Alternately, it could be something like "This is mah house. If you don' like it, you can git the #^@& out!"

This isn't the start of a 'Make up a new tagline for A Small Victory contest', is it?

I mean, you aren't just attracting haters, you know. I sense lots of love for you on this blog. You need no new tagline, from what I can tell.

And soliciting suggestions for a new tagline would just open the floodgates of dumbassedness and idiocy.

Hamtaro:not just for breakfast anymore!!

Please, God, not Hamtaro!!! Anything except that!

Seriously though, I like your site just the way it is...don't let the damn trolls bug you.

Stick with the current tag. It's one of the things that got me reading your blog in the first place. ;]

I say keep "The Gentle Art of Making Enemies". It's your idea, and to heck with what temporary enemies may think.

This sequence from the Simpsons episode, "Marge on the Lamb" seems appropriate:

Marge is surprised to see Ruth sitting in a blue convertible. She gets in.

Marge: You look...nice.
Ruth: Tonight has nothing to do with "nice". Tonight's all about --
[She puts in a tape: "Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows" --]
Oh, sorry Marge. Wrong tape.
["Welcome to the jungle! We got fun and games..."]

Don't use Hamtaro for the tagline... use it to torture your enemies.

Koosh. Koosh.

I'm guessing that the reason you 'attract a ridiculous amount of oppositional haters' is because you dish out enough hate yourself. Rocket science it ain't...

How about adding to the Meta Talk quote:
"Bile! Hatred! Bigotry! Hamtaro!"

I guess, thanks to i_cola, we can add "hate" to the list of words that the Left has redefined downward.
