The Link Virus Epidemic
Link Leak Virus is a special strain of the indie virus with blogtipping mutations that occur in threes. On Open Comments Night the virus was released when a cooking contest was held on Thassos Island, Greece. Here are some cool links that were shared:
- Cat Morely came back especially to leave this one. Internet public library
- Hart offered THIS PLUGIN
- and this one HARTÃ¢â¬â¢s Famous Chili Recipe .
The Cooking Contest that Went Viral
Ben came early and in his typical fun-loving way. The donkey was cooking up some viral marketing techno baubles. Then he started the night with a contest. Finish this sentence. “I cook like . . .” Ben said. Next thing you know it’s a contest.
Ben even said that there would be prizes, and that I would be happy to donate them. As the night went the prizes became Ben’s idea again. A free complete set of the DVDs of Fawlty Towers, starring John Cleese. He left for a while to post-it on his blog. I went over to add it to Reddit — that could be how the virus spread so quickly.
Starbucker said I cook like I golf – IÃ¢â¬â¢m not very good at either, and probably never will be.
Joe said I cook like a Clam in a Casino.
Chris said I cook like . . . Basil the Donkey.
Things were sort of slow in the contest mode, so I decided to raise the bar a bit.
I said “Okay then, now I have to get serious about this cooking contest.
I cook like a cavewoman who hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t yet discovered fire and just found out that her caveman is having an affair with a wild turkey that isnÃ¢â¬â¢t really a turkey because cave people didnÃ¢â¬â¢t live anywhere near wild turkeys . . . wild turkeys hadnÃ¢â¬â¢t evolved yet. So in fact, he has been having his fun with a bird-like wild boar and now she not only has to set the idiot straight, but also has to find him food, before she kicks his butt out of the cave. And that hurts her very deeply. So she gives up eating . . . ”
Ben threatened to take that one viral with a YouTube video.
Starbucker came back with I cook like I exercise; very infrequently and when I do, I canÃ¢â¬â¢t do it very long or very well because of the fact that I do it infrequently, and because of the infrequency the net results of the exercise is very unsatisfactory, and because its unsatisfactory I only do it infrequently.
Chris, not to be outdone, offered
I cook like an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Good amount of beefsteak, lots of spice, and top it all off with a just bit of cheese.
All Trisha said was that My cooking and singing are kind of on the same level – I think it would be cruel to do to the plants.
Cat chimed in with I cook like a I dance (both of which I love). So at times it may be slow and easy. Others, fast, fast, fast.
HART I cook like my wife cleans .. when it comes to Stir Fry and HARTÃ¢â¬â¢s Famous Chili Recipe.
Christine said she liked to listen to music while cooking, but never said how she cooked. I never said I was listening to her music through the whole comments night conversation. Gosh, she really is worth listening to.
The code-writing donkey and moose cooking up trouble with the swill sipping pig last I heard.
