Look, I had to top last year’s April Fool’s joke. And although perhaps you were less shocked this time, I think I succeeded:
Delta O. Venus called it “a festival for the senses.” Vid Tuesday said, “I love that fucking tight Myspace design you’ve got kickin’. And that dolphin toy looks tight.” Lovehoney exclaimed, “It’s a thing of beauty! So much beauty, crashing all over.” Holly informed me, “I showed the boyfriend your site. In his words, ‘this is disgusting!'”
I was very pleased to hear that a few of you experienced your browsers crashing due to my site! I must say, though, my favorite was this email from a concerned reader:
subject: Your Website is Having an Issue
I’m almost thinking it got hacked or something.
What’s missing from that screenshot is the MIDI file I chose as background music: Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply.” Many, many MIDI songs were considered for this slot, from “Old Time Rock and Roll” to Pearl Jam’s version of “Last Kiss,” to anything from Creed or Les Miserables. But when I heard the first “notes” of that “Truly Madly Deeply” MIDI, I knew it was the one. Um, listen to it here and re-live the horror.
I want to thank Elodie so much for all her help making my fake review absolutely atrocious/fabulous. She also helped me with my header, by reminding me when I was still not done by saying things such as “this has, like, composition” and “the colors complement each other.”
Although I wasn’t around most of today to see all your comments as they rolled in, I want to thank you so much for them.
Of course, I also got an anonymous hater comment1, which I didn’t approve, but will show you now:
You can have your snark and your little parody websites, but at the end of the day, mom bloggers actually get money and make careers out of their blogs. Most of them don’t have blogs like this. And for the ones that do, who the fuck are you to judge them? No one knows who you are on the internet outside of your clique of dong-worshippers.
#1. I make money with my blog, too! If you can believe it! Also, pretty sure being profitable does not bar anything from being parodied.
#2. I never said that “most of them” had blogs like that. I was parodying a small sector of the mommy blogging world. The sector that thinks they can write/run blogs without any competence at writing or design.
#3. IT’S AN APRIL FOOL’S JOKE.
#4. A PRANK. IT IS HUMOROUS.
#5. SERIOUSLY, CHILLAX.
Also, I hereby declare myself and all my readers “dong worshippers.” Muahaha.
- And I’m 98% sure of who it’s from, thanks to 5 minutes of an educated guess and Googling!
