Okay.

[ignoring]

anything else you want me to not do?

*Fails*

How many bloglits does it take to ignore a post?

(Meanie? You changed your name?)

We will . . .

Meanie - gesundheit. You got a little snorkage on your 'Blue', there.

A thread about nothing. Just like 'Seinfeld' is a show about nothing.

*Moons the test*

But wait, if I don't pay attention to the post, then I won't read it. And if I don't read it, then I won't know not to pay attention to it. So there is no way not to pay attention to the post without paying attention to it. But if I pay attention to it in order not to, then I am disregarding the post's advice and thus could be said to be ignoring or even not paying attention to the post. But that means I'd be listening to it, which means ARGGGGGGGGGGGHH!

What post?

j

*resists urge to run up posts on 'test' thread*

What's everyone standing around for? Is something going to happen?

This has been a posting of the emergency posting system. If this had been an actual post, there would have been a booger joke, a good name for a rock band, or a Florida driver's license given out. We now return you to your regularly scheduled posts.

We are watching Elon have a nervous breakdown.

*passes around popcorn*

YAY!! I sent this in!

Is this some kind of "Wet Paint" sign test.

Watch them delete the post like they did with the last "Test". I wasn't crazy then. You're all here now. Right??

*Snork* @ Siouxie! I can believe it! ;-)

Yay for Siouxie getting posted finally!
Yay for Steve the 24 guy being here on a Monday night.
*waits patiently for '24' script to materialize*

Does this test require a number 2 pencil?

Don't worry, people. The last time I ignored a post, nothing at all hap

AT 731 PM EDT...RADAR INDICATED THE NEED FOR A TEST POST.

THE TEST POST WILL BE NEAR...

FIRST TEST CITY...AT 745 EDT
SECOND TEST CITY...AT 800 EDT
THIRD TEST CITY...AT 810 EDT.

A POST MEANS THAT DAVE...JUDI /ALL LOWER CASE/...OR WALTER HAS FOUND SOMETHING INTERESTING ON THE INTERNET. IF THIS HAD BEEN AN ACTUAL POST...COMMENTS WOULD GO HERE.
REMEMBER...IN CASE OF AN ACTUAL POST...AVOID CHER AND BARRY MANILOW...IF YOU CANNOT...SEEK SHELTER IN AN INTERIOR ROOM. TURN AROUND DON/T DROWN!

*hands over cup of urine*

The tabula rasa that refreshes. Moooo!
*switches to decalf*

*continues to ignore this thread*

Thank God for the NFL Channel.

I was afraid of this....

*waits patiently for grandbaby boy pix*

Snork @ CJ.

*EWWWSNORK* @ CJ!!

Dang, Meanie. Does Al Gore know??

LOL Annie, that picture! Cool ride.

Wyo looks ebullient, doesn't he?

There is something werrry scruuuuwy about that cows forelegs. Looks like a cloning experiment that went horribly wrong.

Effervescent too, Annie.

iggy, it's a Hereford. That's the best they can do. They ain't Angus, ya know.

annie, where do you find this stuff?

I'll post a pix as soon as I get one.

He was scheduled to be delivered c sec. about two hours ago, but haven't yet heard from my son. we're standin' by, watchin' NFL, and makin' sure the beer don't get too old. ;)

at least it weren't no Holstein.

Al's working on it, Siouxie. He says that's only true in Florida.

Dave?

Dave's not here, man ...

Wyo, your wife sent me that pic. I herd the horn can play for heifer. (don't sweat waiting on the c-section - they can take for-heifer, too, especially the prep time. You can get some serious drinking in before they're done.)
btw - just got a check for my writing, so blog bar's on me tonight. Not literally, of course.

*wonders if I've had enough gin to pass this blog test*

Jason Charles was born at 16.45 hours, and weighed in at 6# 14 oz. spread out over 20". Pictures will be posted later tonight. (they've been taken, but Chas. has to leave the Hosp. and go home to post/fwd them. stay tuned. an' have a cigar.

(everybody's fine.)

Woo-hoo, Annie! Congrats!

Who's tending bar? Annie's buying!

Carry on. Crosby, Stills Nash and Young (and Hash).

Cool, Wyo! We can form a gang!

((((((((Wyo & Diane)))))))))) Congrats to Charlie & the Mrs. too!

Congrats, grandpa Wyo! We have two great reasons to celebrate tonight!

Jason Charles Cowboy. What a great name! ;-)

YAY to Annie!!! our own blog columnist!

Yay for JC!
*slides a buncha snooty-named beers down the bar hoping the blog boys will catch them before they hit the floor*

Congrats Annie.
OH, about the cow. Seems to have human feet.

Congrats Wyo!!

iggy - he's wearing sneakers to protect against the pavement. Haven't you ever seen a hereford in high tops before?

Congrats Wyo

Welcome to the great outdoors, and a long and happy life to Jason Charles! Getting kind of cramped in there, wasn't it?

Congrats, Wyo, Diane, Mrs. Charlie, Charlie and the whole Cowboy Clan.

Sure have, Annie. Ex-wife.

here's a sincere thanks for all your well-wishes, to those who've already posted, and to those of you who will shortly. I'll see an' appreciate them all, even If I don't keep postin' "thanks."

Here's one for you, Cowpoker.

Pay no attention to this either:
--------------------------------

FROM THE DESK OF MRS.MARINA ZAMA
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING SECTION OF
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA).
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA-FASO
WEST AFRICA

Dear Friend,

I am MRS. MARINA ZAMA the director in charge of auditing and accounting
section of Bank of Africa (BOA) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso West-Africa
with
due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business
transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of
the
transaction.

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came
across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person Mr.Sheu
Yuan-dong who died on February 16, 2004 in a gassy car accident with
his
entire family on there way back from Bobo-Dioulasso the formal capital
city of Burkina-Faso, and the fund has been dormant in his account with
this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his
family or relation before our discovery to this development.

The said amount was U.S $9.8M (Nine million eight hundred United States
dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive
information through yahoo search on foreign business relations here in
Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso. Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put
claim
over this fund as the bona fide next of kin to the deceased, to get the
required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been
put in place and directives, and needed information will be relayed to
you
as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and
also benefit
your self to this great business opportunity.

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in
this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to
operate
a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side
during
the time of transfer because I work in this bank.

This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow
who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of
oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need
the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after
due
verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank
where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation
bank
account.

I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free.
On
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% of
the
total sum as gratification, while 60% will be for me. Please, you have
been advised to keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend
to
retire from service after we conclude this deal. I will be monitoring
the
whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your
account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing
of
the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further
investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to
invest
in. All other necessary vital information will be sent to you when I
hear
from you.

I will be expecting to hear from you soonestwith this email
address,[email protected]

Have a nice day
MRS.MARINA ZAMA
PHONE/00226-782-76-586

BTW, CJ, which one's Pink?

Let us know how it works out, SW. You surely deserve it.

the pig, Meanie. The pig is pink.

see, we don't need no education.

SW I want in on the deal. Jason needs a college education.

If I were actually paying attention to this thread, I would be offering my congratulations to the entire Cowfamily.

SW,
There used to be a site 419 eater dot com, that scammed the scammers. The site was hilarious. Seems to be down.

SW, I hate to tell you, but it's not going to work now. You have been advised to keep "top secret" and you didn't do it. Now EVERYbody is going to want in on this deal.

*raises a glass to toast Mr. Dong and his gassy car accident*

Do you ever wonder where they come up with the names they use?
BTW,Howdy SW

Well, I would propose thought control, Wyo, but we're talking about CJ here. ;-)

If Dave gets to 100 responses he will win a bet with someone in the band, I'll bet on King, cause thats scary

tee hee hee

I just finished making my special "treats" for tomorrow!!


Hey, gjd. I'm weary now, so there's time and I can be bought off. Otherwise, I may have to post pics of you from Saturday, messing around with a guy that is not Mr. gjd. :}

A test? I didn't know there would be a test! I thought that this was a humor blog. Whaddya mean?! Say it ain't so! Is it oral or multiple choice? How will I know if I passed? And who is tending bar?

I dunno/care who's tendin' bar, but I'm buyin' hep yersef.

*slides a glass down to Cheryl*
Not sure what it is, but it, too, will pass.

*cheers*
thanks Wyo

Wyo! Congrats and welcome to The Grandpa Club!

Hey WYOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!
Congrats, and sincerely felt good karma to you and yours !!! A grandbaby is sooooooo much fun and enjoyment !!!! Remember these wise words :
Of course, honey, you can have some, but you have to ask Mommy and Daddy first !
Which of course makes you the good the guy and them the bad guy in one sentence - I use it quite often ... Paybacks are such a beeyotch !!!!

looks like brandy, but who really cares at this point.

OK, till we finish the website I still need a host and I @*%#( don't like hosts. However, here's a test link, CJ, gjd, casey, and crossgirl at the campsite.

Oh, and congrats to you too, Annie! I sincerely hope it's the first of many more to come.

Thanks, WD. My creditors are counting on it. *gulp* :)

Wooo Hoo! Grandbabies! How exciting! Brandy will work!

CJ--I didn't pass your test.

As always, Annie - only the BEST to you !!!

SarahJ, it's good to see that some people are keeping tradition alive.

Are we supposed to continue to ignore this post, or can we stop now?

WriterDude, gonna be in your area in a couple of weeks, we need to hook up.

Unfortunately, I gotta go away - much love to you and yours, Wyo, and know we are all praying for the safe and happy home deliverance ...
Annie - as always - you are the sunshine of my life !

Alas, if Mr. Dong had only taken some Beano, he would still be alive and enjoying his U.S $9.8M (Nine million eight hundred United States dollars). Those gassy car accidents can be pretty bad.

Absolutely, Wyo. How about I post my numbers as a comment after the deer-roping story, you jot them down and then remove it? (Email not reliable just now.)

Well, I tried. I'm having internet problems all night long and will address this with the provider, tomorrow. I don't 'do' Customer Service; I have a payment due in 10 days and they will straighten this out or cease to be my provider. It's not my computer and it's not between the keyboard and chair.

I hereby declare myself unwilling to tease along a crappy connection. Tomorrow, I go ballistic, as they keep splitting out their bandwidth and charging me the same. Viva La Revolucion! *assumes he won't be able to to post*

sorry, Annie... No 24 tonight. :-\

will do, WD.

It's ok, Steve. I'll check in with ya next week. :)
Kidding, of course. Just wanted to be post #100!
