Hi, my name's Peter and this is my first foray into collabarative blog writing.
Katdish invited me to contribute to this blog and I have been desperately trying to come up with a worthy contribution but have been utterly failing... here's my problem:
The posters on this marvelous blog are witty and clever and I used to be just like them. There was a time when people hung on my every word - every sound that came out of my mouth was sure to make people smile, laugh and in all other ways react with joy and happiness.
Then came that fateful day when it all stopped. Somehow I lost my sense of humor. People no longer found me funny, no matter what I said I couldn't get more than a brief smile from anyone. I had fallen from my pedestal as one of the world's greatest comedians, never to rise again.
I don't remember the exact day that this happened but it was some time around my second birthday. Things have not been the same since.
Learning to actually talk is highly overrated, in my opinion.
So what place do I have amongst the comic geniuses here on FotTSP?
Or so I thought!
Today though, I have come up with a genius plan for a worthy post:
If you can't make 'em laugh... feed 'em!
I may not be as witty and clever as Katdish and the other contributors to this blog but I can tell you that today, Tuesday February 24th 2009, IHOP are giving away a free short-stack of pancakes to every customer. See here for details.
I ask you: which would you rather have, a witty and creative blog post or 3 freshly cooked IHOP pancakes?
No contest really!
