Steve Martin, the actor/comedian/writer/director/balloon animal artist, has an autobiography out. I haven't read it yet, but I keep hearing that I need to. Marcy at The Glamorous Life recommended it, among other people, so I really need to go get that book.
I remember part of a Steve Martin's stand-up comedy routine in which he told the audience they were all going to play a joke on the local convenience store. He suggested they all file out of the theater, walk down the street, and casually go into the store, one at a time, to each buy a Slim Jim beef jerky stick. The poor clerk would never know what hit him, and how much should he reorder for next week?
I've always loved the idea, even though it's a mean trick to play on a poor retail clerk (SOLIDARITY!), and so I've got a proposition for you.
Let's go Slim Jim a blog.
I'll pick a blog, and we'll all show up there and leave a comment. If you can work the words "Slim Jim" into your comment, extra points. The poor blogger will never know what hit him/her. If all goes well, some of us will even stick around a while, and we may be invited to dinner.
Okay, since Marcy was the one who brought up Steve Martin, and in honor of Marcy's new site design, and since her post today is one of her wacky made-up stories about a found photo, LET'S GO SLIM JIM THE GLAMOROUS LIFE! Go leave Marcy a comment!
