Half.com and Ebay: The Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate Points at YOU!!!!
The Flying, Fickle Finger of Fate is this blog's unauthorized reincarnation of the old "Laugh In" award for outstanding stupidity and/or malfeasence that came to the Finger's attention in the previous week, even if sometimes it is recognition of a chronic, log-term problem. Half.com and Ebay (because it owns Half.com, although it may deserve the award in its own right) are the deservign reciipients of this week's Finger, represented by a statuette of a pointing INDEX finger. See the previous entry for the full story of why the Finger pointed at Half.com and Ebay this weekend. Award ceremony (as usual, a virtual ceremony, without grpahics, taking place entirely in the imagination, which is why it is suggested taht the iimage of Dick Martin presenting the old "Laugh In" version of the Finger be used solely as a visual aid); Imagine Dick Martin thrusting the poiniting Finge statuette at the camera and saying: "Half.com and Ebay, this is for you. You deserve it. I have been asked by the blog editor to announce that this week's o deserving recipients of the Finger have committed a special crime. They have proved thqat the editor of this blog is a total idiot--something leftists have failed to do for some 45 years (the time during which the editor has been an outspoken conservative)--a total idiot for continuing to deal with Half.com. I, Dick Martin, wish to annouce my personal embarrassment at being the virtual visual aid/spoksperson--albeit without my permission--for such an idiot."
