Now that it looks like the Buffet will survive and continue to provide us with (barely) enough entertainment to get us though the day, it's time to address some of the criticisms and concerns from the blog users -- namely, the lack of participation from various "contributors."
Therefore, I am starting the first annual "Quevedo at the Buffet Blog-Off" (which has been approved by the all-powerful founder -- and head-linkee -- Rubie Q) in an attempt to get rid of some of the dead weight around here.
The rules are simple:
1. At random times, I'm going to announce a Blog-Off match-up, which will involve two of our "contributors." The first blog-off contestant to respond/comment to the blog-off post survives and will be granted to right to continue blogging with us.
2. The loser -- that is, the dipshit who doesn't respond or comment on the blog-off post -- is banished to The Land of Wind and Ghosts Supreme Elimination Pool of Death.
3. Those banished to The Land of Wind and Ghosts Supreme Elimination Pool of Death will participate in a head-to-head post-off on a topic decided upon by Buffet Management (better known as "B.M."). We'll pick a winner from the post-off, and that guy gets to keep blogging.
4. The loser of the head-to-head blog-off is blocked by Rubie Q from posting on the blog unless and until he submits a formal reinstatement application. Applications for reinstatement must be submitted through a current member of the blog. One application per week, please, and applications must include an apology and valid reason for reinstatement in 9 words or less.
Got it? Good. 'Cuz here's the first match-up:
Kenosha Mustache (nominated because even though Kenosha is almost in Illinois, it's still close enough to be an active member of the blog; also, KM was expected to provide the blog with insight regarding Las Vegas and musical instruments)
Moongoose McQueen (nominated because instead of sharing his general knowledge of sports with us he's most likely locked away scheming and cramming for the upcoming fantasy football draft; also, MMcQ was expected to provide the blog with insight into Rock Band and professional wrestling)
Remember: first to comment on this post is safe. Loser gets taken out by Mr. Sparkle.
