Project Mayhem, Half-assed Baseball Metaphors, and Dethtron Probably Makes Fun of Your Country

Where to begin?

I was really excited about starting project mayhem a few weeks ago.  I really thought that it was going to be a smash hit and rival FNIF for ill-conceived things I've done that randomly turn out to be popular.  How wrong I was.


To begin with here's a quick primer on baseball so that you understand what's about to happen.  This is for those of you who live in not-America ad are as confused by baseball as I am by Cricket or that weird Aussie bowling type thing with the rubber disks or whatever the hell dumb ass sport you guys are playing in foreign right now.  In baseball when a batter is up and misses the bass, hits the ball out of bounds, or fails to swing at a "good" pitch he receives a strike.  3 strikes and you're out.  3 outs and your team's turn (inning) is over.  Easy enough?  Biblical, numerological significance?  Meh, who the fuck cares.

Strike 1
Project mayhem is conceived.  I send out a call for people to pose as existing BoLS contributors and apply to be a writer.  Nobody submits anything.  Turns out the application process was closed shortly after I put a hit out on BoLS.

Strike 2
I ask for people to go fuck with Zingbaby in a forum comments thread or to make up the best untrue boast they can think of to support their "credentials" in a forum.  Nothing is submitted.

Strike 3
I make one last attempt to find a foothold for the experiment, by punking project mayhem.  I asked everybody to use "boner" as a punctuation mark on Blood of Kittens.  Lots of you did and it was funny as shit, but that wasn't my aim.  I quickly removed the actual project mayhem post and pretended to be confused by what was going on.

What was supposed to look like this:




...actually turned into THIS!

So where does that leave us?  3 strikes it's out?  Do I have another at bat?  Do we all get hot dogs and nachos?

I'm not sure if I should be proud or ashamed.

Much like adolescence, I'll settle for a bit of both.

see, the thing is, Dethtron, that we all come here to see you do all the work.

Lauby's got it, building a subversive counter-culture is fun, up until it involves me having to do stuff beyond point, laugh and insert the occasional boner wherever it is needed.

I feel like a cheap whore!

Anybody fancy a used BroLo? $5 on a street corner near you!

If I was any good at this, I'd have my own blog and be sleeping on top of a pile of money with many beautiful ladies.

But I don't, so like everybody else here, I have to settle for you, instead.

I try not to think about what that says about me (us).

I didn't feel I needed to submit my idle boasts when you were in the same comment threads... I felt it superfluous. Most every post of mine on Lauby's Blog last week was a Mayhem-er. :(

I also hit 4 or 5 others, but I forget what and where...In fact, I'm pretty sure I put one on Mind War!

I'm pretty sure the BoLS thing, appropriately enough, counts as a ball. By the time I'd read your original call to arms and got good and drunk they'd already closed applications. I have the sneaking suspicion they closed it just because of you.

And here I thought this post was about jerking off to take me out to the ball game.

Does this mean I will be the only Project Mayhem Hero? Oh yeah! Suck my *censored* boner

Dethy,

i'm shocked and appalled that you did not include 'welly wanging' in your list of unusual sports that no one can get their head around.
