There’s an old saying which goes something like this: Even the sun shines on a dog’s ass somedays. Essentially it means that everyone gets lucky at some point or another. Well guess who’s lucky today? That’s right people – today is my day! The blog-goddess Peg has bestowed the highest of honors upon yours truly!
She created a weekly feature on her blog which highlights a post that should have been Freshly Pressed on the front page of WordPress but was somehow overlooked. Her weekly spotlight is shining on this dog’s ass today and my tail is wagging proudly. After pressure from legions of followers, Peg has christened these snubbed gems as “Freshly Pegged”. To the best of my knowledge, she has yet to receive any cease-and-desist notices from the corporate boys up at WordPress HQ.
If you’re not following Peg over at Peg-o-Leg’s Ramblings, there’s a good chance that your diet is lacking lierary fiber and the kind of homespun midwestern humor that’ll stick to your ribs. In any case, as loyal lemmings of good old 1 Point himself, you are commanded to click on the link above to Peg’s place to see my post – that’s an order. Wipe your feet and mind your manners while you’re there – don’t embarrass me, dammit!
The post of mine which Peg is featuring is my initial entry in The 7 Deadly Sins contest, hosted by the one and only k8edid. Entries could be no more than 600 words, and had to include death and/or the threat thereof as well as a connection to the deadly sin of the week. The deadly sin for this particular post was “gluttony”. The title is “Willie Prader, Private Eye – Deadly Sin Series – A Glutton For Punishment“. I drew the illustration in a pathetic attempt to improve my chances at winning and to distract readers from typos and holes in the plot. While I did manage to win gluttony plus one more sin, I missed out on the Freshly Pressed brass ring.
k8edid’s blog is always packed with great writing; for example, she recently revealed that she’s not dead! Please click on Peg’s link before k8edid’s – there are rules of etiquette which must be maintained. We simply can’t have you people flitting around WordPress all willy-nilly.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to put on some Coppertone on my tail.
