To catch those of you up who may have missed it, Reputation@Stake from "The Stupid Bet" challenged me to a Blogger Throwdown, where the two of us wrote on the same topic, with Rep trying to mimic my style, such as it is. Readers then cast their votes as to who wrote which piece.
Although Rep was able to fool a few people including a couple long-time Knucklehead readers (I'm looking at YOU, Mariann and Dr. Grumpy), most of you correctly identified "What Ever Happened To . . . Ranger Smith (Version B)" as being written by me. I've reworked my version, which will appear in its regular spot on Knucklehead tomorrow morning.
I gotta say, though, Reputation@Stake did a pretty fair job. One line in particular, something about Yogi Bear running in a straight line but somehow passing the same tree twenty times, was something that I definitely could have come up with. Great work, Reppy!
Apparently the Blogger Throwdown is an idea that Reputation@Stake is going to run with, challenging other bloggers to the same type of competition. So Reppy, if you're reading this, allow me to point you in the direction of a couple guys named Suldog and Mike W-J.
Thanks for thinking of me for this contest, Rep. It was a blast!
