The Bar Has Been Raised.

We have the best readers on the internets.

You don't believe me? Read the comments here, go to the blogs of these people...you'll see. They're all well above average intelligence, excellent writers and funny. They make this blog. We log on every day in hopes of a comment here or even better a new post on their own blogs. We love them all but...

Today we love one of them slightly more than the rest...one of you has moved into first place among equals. Shockingly it is not one of our regular contributors, she doesn't even have a blog of her own...she is a regular lurker. Worse still...she one of those lurkers. The one's that either contact me directly about the blog or passes on comments through third parties like Martha.

How is it that a non-contributing, passive reader of the blog, has reached this lofty status with us here at Flimsy Cups?

She gave me a ticket to the Mississippi State/Alabama game this weekend.

That's how easy I am.

Thank you Ms. Quick.

  1. Or may be she had tickets for Justin Bieber's "Who's Baby Is It?" tour for the same day?

  2. Whose - oh come on natetin, basic grammar.

  3. There's a third option here: you bought the tickets and are concealing the fact from Martha by this elaborate third-party hoax.

  4. I am setting up this symbolic tent ^ on your symbolic lawn until we learn the real truth behind this lamentable charade concealing surreptitious ticket trading.

  5. All I'm saying is that there's the whiff of suspicion that the bar has actually been lowered here.

  6. I'm tempted to write to Michael McDonald and ask him if he could put his soulful voice, backed by a surprisingly catchy pop-anthem, to a protest song decrying the debacle.

  7. Has somebody got Jane Fonda's number? She could make a special exercise video highlighting the plight of the flimsy cup ticket truthers.

  8. Jane's in great shape for her age, but it would have to be a full-body Lycra suit gig.

  9. I can understand your jealousy and bitterness about this...it's gotta be a crushing blow for some of you. Just keep two things in mind...

    One, you are all loved.

    Two, Michael McDonald = Permanent Ban From Site

    It's all on the up and up. I pictorial proof that this arrangement has been made in the past without raising any questions of impropriety.

    Also, if any of you would like to raise the bar even higher and take this lofty status from J Quick...there is the Alabama/Auburn game coming up in a few weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Of course, if some of you had thought to be proactive...and obtained a ticket to the Alabama/LSU game for me...I would have dedicated this entire site in your name.

    Keep this in mind when next year rolls around.

  11. You fear the silver fox McDonald and his well groomed beard and his unique musical brand of counter-culture rebellion. Admit it! Admit it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. May be if Jane Fonda and Michael McDonald joined forces, there'd be no stopping that combo.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Shine sweet freedom, shine your light on me and lift, separate and relax.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I may have revealed too much of my personal fantasies here, time to pack my tent up.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The well groomed beard is a recurring nightmare for me.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Could you touch it without questioning your sexuality? LOL, I've really gone too far now!

    ReplyDelete
  17. By way of opt-out: you can take the fifth on that - don't ask; don't tell.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah that wouldn't be a problem....however, as I examined the evenness of the hairs, the well trimmed lines, the cool smoothness of it all...it's the honkey in me that I would most fear being aroused.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It all makes sense now: http://youtu.be/zR49A0YiCho

  20. Ironically a Honky-Tonk is about the last place you'd find an actual honky.

    Posting Hank Williams clips is good...but, I'm lookin' at this ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Any true SEC fan should attend at least one SEC game a year. Glad I could help.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Y'all take a good look...this is what a Reader of the Year looks like.

  23. Things have settled down now but it was Hiroshima around here for about half an hour after The Boy found out I was going to a football game without 'im.

    I took him to see the Gators play last year and he had the time of his little life. Looks like we'll be going to another game here in the next few weeks....emphasis on we.

  24. "Michael McDonald = Permanent Ban From Site"

    This is one of the most sensible comment moderation policies I've yet encountered on the interweb. I will be implementing a similar policy over at the Stupidity Cure, whereby anyone who mentions Steely Dan (or any other similarly contrived horror) will first be roundly insulted until I run out of unpleasant things to say (which could take some time) and then banned.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would like to also implement a ban on the horrifying Steely Dan...but The Sister knows where I live.

    If this doesn't bring her out of retirement nothing will.

    hahahhaha

  26. What gibberish is this? Let's just say, late one night, while searching for sense through the distorted lens of the umpteenth, empty bottle-end, I had a revelation. That revelation had a name and a woefully misunderstood pedigree. Michael MacDonald wasn't simply a hirsute honkey, his soulful baritone belied a heart that had traveled to the very epicenter of the void, he had seen the edge and refused to let its razor-touch shave him. The echo of that experience can occasionally be glimpsed in a furtive, thousand-yard side-glance, as his fingers rotate on auto-pilot, tinkling the piano keys through another catchy bridge, in search of the chorus to his happy place. The savage man-beauty of Grizzly Adams and the rhythmic pop-sensitivity of The Jackson 5.

  27. There's the standard for discussing Mr. McDonald...if you can match it (you won't exceed it) then you are permitted.

    Video links are still strictly forbidden.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Do we have a Jane Fonda policy as well? I think Ted Turner probably has.

    ReplyDelete
  29. No policy on Jane...unless Ted Turner offers to buy the place.
