This morning I received the following email from the CEO of WordPress, Fr. Phil MeCrackin. I assure you on the graves of your own ancestors, my dear readers, that what you are about to read is as true now as it was the minute I made it up.
“Dear Pontificator: My name is Fr. Phil MeCrackin. I am the CEO of WordPress and have held that position for almost 70 years now. I am writing to provide you with statistical information pertinent to your blog for 2014. Before I give it to you, however, I must take a moment to tell you that never once, in all the years I’ve been at WordPress, have I come across a blog more Nobel Prize worthy than yours. You’ve not only made me laugh so hard at times I peed a little, you’ve made me weep openly with your Pulitzer Prize worthy editorials and your Shakespeare-like skills as a poet. As a non-gay, masculine white male, I feel completely secure in telling you, Mr. Pontificator, that I love you with all that I am for being exactly who it is you are: A Self-Awarded Nobel Prize Winner and a pontificator extraordinaire. Thank you, Sir, for making the lives of the billions you reach every day with your blog brighter for having read it. If I were there beside you at this moment, I’d kiss you so hard your lips would bleed. But, since I’m not, I’ll simply have to leave you with the 2014 stats for your blog. Adieu, my friend. Adieu.”
