Thanks for Giving A . . . Well, You Know
My sidebar would be a much less interesting place without the skillz and generosity of Circus Kelli. When I recently expressed appreciation for those of you here who give a rat's ass about my current troubles, CK created this lovely Commemorative Rat's Ass so that anyone who so desires might identify themselves as one who does, indeed, give a rat's ass.
I have seen them on a couple of blogs, and they do make me grin. I would also say that the time has come when I must ask that if you do, in your heart, give a rat's ass, perhaps display of this emblem -- on your blog, your forehead, wherever -- is a more fitting way to make a statement than actually, literally, giving a rat's ass. While I do appreciate the actual rat's asses that have been given so far, my mail carrier has asked to be reassigned -- it's over 100 degrees here, and while the thought of your giving a rat's ass for me is truly moving, the reality of it is getting to be a bit much. Probably better to go with the symbol now, than with an actual, physical, in-the-mail ass of a rat.
And yes, it may seem a bit egocentric to display my own "rat's ass" emblem. But, like all the self-esteem experts say, "If you don't give a rat's ass for yourself, why should anyone else?" (What? They don't say that? Well, they should.)
(Now, I ask you, where else, on the Innernets as a Hole, can you read the words, "lovely Commemorative Rat's Ass"?)
