Disheartened By Carping Criticism I Feel The Need to Elucidate

Paragraph 1
Okay no offense to most of you reading this, and only a bit to those of you who I am directing this toward, but some of you need to read more of my blog. I have a sarcastic ironic and satirical sense of humor that you might pick up on. Really, try reading some other articles and maybe, just maybe, this profundity will not be lost on you. I have a contest running where people are to guess What the F Does the C Stand 4. Now I personally didn't feel there was anything overly confusing and I certainly don't want to dampen the inquisitive spirit of you my readers, but HUH? Here are the rules as stated in the contest post.

1. To enter you will need to write a post linking back to and mentioning this contest and your guess.

2. Leave a comment to this post that includes the url of your entry post.

3. One entry per person but if you really really feel the urge to guess more than once, feel free to write multiple posts (limit 5), each containing a different guess and each linking to a different article on this site. Each additional post other than your
first one must be at least 1000 words and full of nothing but praise or, if you are of a sarcastic bent, platitudes for this site.

4. All entries must be received by Update: I have extended the contest until 3:30 P.M Central Time on August 31st. Any entries after this deadline could however receive special recognition in a random conversation with a passerby.

5. If for some odd reason you would like to enter without posting please Donate $20 and put your entry in the item field.

6. The prize will be awarded via paypal only. If you do not have paypal then for $197 $99 $49 2 Easy Monthly Payments of $14.99 the reduced low low price of FREE, I have this ebook for sale that will explain in detail how to open a Paypal account. Actually that is simply a link to the Paypal sign-up page.

Paragraph 2
I received an e-mail from a reader complaining about #6 and saying that there wasn't an ebook and that it was only a link to paypal. At first I thought it was a joke. Then I read a bit more and realized that they were serious and I was being chastised for being disingenuous. I also received several other emails lamenting the difficulty of #3. To deal with the vexing issue of the first complaint I have added a short explanation to the end of #6. To address the difficulty a few of you are having with #3 see paragraph 1 sentence 2. If you still don't get it you obviously don't and won't get the point so let it go. Just quit. You have other issues that can't be addressed in the short amount of time we have here.

Paragraph 3
Having been really disheartened by the carping criticism I therefore felt the need to elucidate a bit on the nature of my humor. For those of you with ADD or ADHD reference sentence 2 paragraph 1 for a truncated explanation. For those of with slightly longer attention spans you can reference sentences 1 and 3 of paragraph 1 and work from there. Now to address you who are still reading. Enter the contest, if you haven't already, and finish reading as there really isn't that much more anyway.

Paragraph 4
Dang! Now I just know I'm going to be getting emails about which paragraph is which. So as to avoid confusion I have labeled the paragraphs for you. I have not, however, labeled the sentences for the sake of readability. Sorry I just felt the need to vent a little. Here is a big THANKS to all of my readers and contest entrants.

later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day
