Russell Brown has blogged about an article by Diana Witchel about a Gordon King’s poety competition blog post which was about a blog post by Russell!
I find it curious that he thinks Gordon is angry with the world. I think he is taking the piss most of the time, and am surprised anyone can really mistake that for anger.
He says Gordon had a wildly precious reaction when a few contributors to the competition had some fun at his expense, but again I fail to see what was precious about the fact he didn’t even delete their posts from his blog.
As for thinking they were a bit of fun. Fun involves humour and wit. One or two were okay such as:
This morning I read a blog called NZ pundit
And I was struck by how much it resembled a small dog tud
only on the web
But most (sampled below) was just moronic abuse, and frankly I’m surprised Russell is defending them.
You are a tool;
I was reading nzpundit the other day
when it struck me that the guy who writes it is a stupid cunt
looking for a hand job from a soldier
gordon, pull your fuckin head in mate. you’re a complete dick, you know that eh?
wrong format, but merit award material.
This morning I looked at my penis before I got out of bed,
i was struck by its resemblence to gordons face;
only a lot better looking
The angry Gordon has responded with a poll on how angry he really is. I’ve just voted.
