Blogger Throwdown Challenge!

Okay, this should be fun.  A guy by the name of Reputation@Stake (probably not his actual name), author of the very funny blog The Stupid Bet, has challenged me to what he calls a "Blogger Throwdown."  Here's the concept:

In a few days, right here on Knucklehead!, you'll find a post containing two pieces on the same topic.  Seeing as I'm the one who was challenged, I was permitted to select said topic, which will be "What Ever Happened To . . . Ranger Smith?" (you know, Mr. Ranger from the Yogi Bear cartoons).  I'll write my version, and Mr. @Stake will attempt to imitate my style in his separate version.  Readers will be asked to figure out who wrote which piece, and share their opinion in the comment section.  I guess the idea is that Reputation@Stake will see how good a job he can do imitating my style (which calls into question his judgment, but hey, this was his idea not mine). 

Also, I'm not allowed to cheat by giving hints.  For example, I'm not permitted to say that my piece will contain the word "festooned" somewhere in the text, nor would it be kosher to tell you that at some point Yogi Bear will find a picnic basket full of In-N-Out Double Doubles.  So I'm not going to do that.

Really, I'm not.  This will be more fun if it's completely on the up-and-up.

Anyway, the Throwdown will be taking place on Tuesday (if all goes according to plan), so be sure to stop by then and see how good Reputation@Stake is at mimicking my style.

Like that's some sort of accomplishment . . .

This is going to be good! Instead of a "Dance Off" it's a "Write Off." Love it!

This is a very fun idea. I can't wait.
