When sensitive flowers attack

The Humphreys have the story that silly old Lydon Hood at un-Fighting Talk has come out against the London bombers, still harbours a grudge against both the Humphreys and myself.

I haven't yet read Lyndon's piece, but apparently reading my blog raises his blood pressure. Poor chap. Maybe he should lie down and think about England.

[UPDATE: Ah. Seems I've been given a bit of a bum steer. Here's what Lyndon wrote: "Be aware that I'm about to do a lot of attributing the opinions of one author to the entire blog. I'm sort of sorry about that. I know I abused PC for it. But I don't want to look up who said what because reading that blog is bad for my blood pressure." Looks like the Humphreys have misattributed 'that blog.' There you go. Storm in a pantywaist.]

Yup, he's also edited the post. (Lords, no - not editing of his post hours after the fact?) Heh. Watching somebody jerk around on the floor with a furious gnashing of teeth and foam at the corners of the mouth is always funny. Peter Cresswell? Bad for your blood pressure? Only if you actually think about the scenarios he describes where the Statist government is Not your best friend. Oh well, I have the original page via feed if you're interested. Haven't checked (couldn't be bothered) to see what the differences are.

The link at Sir H's broke when I corrected a stupid typo in the title (this is the only 'edit'; tcm, you can check if you like).

It's at http://fightingtalk.blogspot.com/2005/07/lyndon-hood-not-one-to-bear-grudge.html

If you have a careful look I hope you'll agree that the 'blood pressure' comment was intended to refer to Sir H's and not to PC.

Because (whatever the Lemur says about me backing my opinions), that's they way I meant it.

Ta.

Well he has certainly achieved his goal in provoking a response - this fighting talk person. Man you men are dumb. Everyone a coconut.

Ya think he's dumb, Ruth, I think I can top that, and I think you know who I mean. Some people just don't know when to quit.

I don't want to engage you Lyndon, because I can hear a clock with a little bird in it ticking and it's going to chime 5:30 soon. But, splitting hairs is a real fine art when you link to posts like this while talking about Sir Humphreys.

Blah blah blah... getting savaged by Lyndon is akin to having your ankle humped by a not very bright guinea pig. However did you notice?

Yes indeed Craig...but who will support Mark- not hot PC that's 4 sure. But *I* will. It disgusts me when people put up posts and then run away. I know who *my* friends are and I support them whole-heartedly, not because I require it - I can stand up for myself- but because an alpha-male would.

Guess you men aren't high enough up the food chain.

I meant an alpha male or woman there. Heh.

And you are cowardly too Peter Cresswell - clicking through from elsewhere. I've got your number and am done with you. Guess you aren't an alpha male after all. FETE.

you're right, did read that sentence wrong. Oh well, the rest still stands... unless hes edited it of course.

Theres been rather alot of editing of that post, including the PC comment. No one cared enough to keep a copy, so into the ether the original goes.

I've missed something too, PC. Ruth, I don't see anything 'alpha male' in wasting a picosecond of my time on Lyndon Hood - he is nothing and nobody to me therefore his opinions are nothing more than the atonal "music" of the blogospheres.

I've just deleted James's recent comment. He can come back and add comments when he at least pretends to value reason.

And I have to agree with Lydon here: I linked to his piece when the link was posted, but only read it some hours later and I didn't notice it changed when I pressed the refresh button. On reflection it's really just politely humorous.

Oh, and does anyone know what FETE means?

"A festival or feast." according to my dictionary, but that makes little sense in context to me. Betting it's an acronymn, but have no clues, sorry.

Fucking Egregious Titty Eater?

Just guessing, although, after all the support, I sure in hell don't want to offend Ruth!!!

The Humps misattributing something? Now there's a surpruse...
