Here’s a spring gift that I hope my aging tech, geek, atheist, skeptic, and nimble-minded Euro-youth niches will all appreciate. I’m pretty sure I’ll offend, applaud or confuse quite a few other niches along the way. As always, join at your own risk. I don’t want to read or watch whiny Youtube videos about a bunch of hurt feelings when everybody laughs at you for falling off the back of the skeptic’s hay wagon.
If there isn’t enough hay to begin with, there’s a good chance I might be able to stir up a little extra along the way. Hold the horses!! Heretic HQ just called to tell me that if there are no rules of conduct, then the ride cannot be certified by the head of the Atheistplus Action committee, the formerly estimable Dr. Richard Carrier (aka Debbie Downer). Since this blog insists on inclusiveness and I have been accused of being something a tad south of totally gracious, here goes:
The Heretic Hayride rules of conduct are as follows:
Leave your pets at home (no #carrierpigeon allowed). Be aware that our path crosses the known territory of a doughy looking, blue-haired Siren, as well as a cinnamon skinned fuzzy-haired monster. DO NOT attempt to approach either one. The latter is known to have hair trigger rage issues and an incredibly acute sense of hearing. Snap a PIC, Tweet to World, Call security, write blogpost, but DON’T be foolish enough to confront either of them directly if we have the misfortune of making their encounter. Keep your arms inside the wagon at all times and avoid loose or dangling jewelry. Dongle type earrings are known to be specially prone to snagging.
Having to construct and conform to arbitrary rules of conduct took all the fun out of the adventure, so the ride has been officially cancelled for today.
