The plot thickens

So, the news of dirty deeds and bought links continues to unfold.

In the comments at Jonathon’s accusatory post I found the following from Jeneane:

J. – I tried to bribe you with cashew brittle from the Bird, but no response. As a tenured U Blog faculty member, I am upset by this tim tam matter. I was supposing to get 8-24 links from you and Shelley as the runner for your cashew brittle, acting as the intermediary, so to speak. What, now tim tams? I must go think on this matter.

So! So! The rightous one turns out to be a fraud! Worse, the Heartless Thing is guilty of Weblogger Labor – sending me out into the icy cold of the voided thread, forcing me to offer my Blogger template repairing skills for a crust of bread, a drop of milk, a box of brittle.

We’re on to you TimTamMan! We know what you’re really up to: no less than the overthrow of the University of Blogaria, itself!

It’s true that you have your supporters, such as Steve, bought cheap for some ginger beer. (BTW, what is the link value of ginger beer?)

However, know you that I have two faculty members on my side: Dizzy the Cat (known in certain circles as Dizario Catosnos, famous master spy), and none other than the great, the noble, the brittle loving man of forgiveness – AKMA!

(BTW, the “religious material” is on the way, AKMA. *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*)

In spite of the peace making tactics of Dorothea – whom I see you’re practicing yet more Weblogger Labor tactics on by having her test hellish instruments of torture – your antipodean idylic days of peace and tranquility are over TimTamMan!

Jonathon I don’t know how you could think I would stoop to trading my favors for your cookies?

Links for Tim Tams! Indeed!

JonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathon. How could you think that of me? The Bird that Burns, of honesty and integrity?

JonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathon. I’m hurt al-most beyond belief by your accusation.

JonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathonJonathon. How could you bring me up before our associates at Blog U?

I would never think of trading my favors for something like cookies.


The heartless thing!

Restless night and couldn’t sleep so I thought I would sooth my spirit and calm my soul by seeing what my good and dear friend Jonathon Delacour has to say.

Imagine how aghast I was to read:

Links for Tim Tams Scandal

Reeling from the shock, I read further:

I strongly believe that U Blog faculty members have a special responsibility to act in accordance with the highest standards of blogging practice. Accordingly, I have no recourse but to raise the issue with the University of Blogaria Ethics Committee (assuming such a body exists) and ask that Burningbird—who is in reality Shelley Powers, the Alfred E. Newman Foundation Professor of International Blogging Relations—be given an official reprimand.

My fellow University of Blogaria comrades, my dear and beloved associates, how could any of you think that I would seek to extort Tim Tams in exchange for links?

I am hurt. Hurt. Hurt, do you hear me? Stabbed to the quick.

I need a cookie.
