the misuse of the word sexy / blog gets ranked


there is this one dude at my office that initiated the Penguin Theory, and although he is not the first ever penguin, he was the first one to be identified as such and basically serves as the benchmark for other potential penguins. andTim and i will reveal more about the Penguin Theory as time goes on, but one characteristic of the penguin is the misuse of words in the english language. well, the penguin has ventured into other languages and makes bad calls in french now as well, which may be even more of a beating. anyway, in the instance of yesterday, the penguin misused the word "sexy" and has probably done so 100 times. a direct quote from the penguin to a co-worker yesterday at work occurred as follows:

"Bucky*, I never see you workin' on anything sexy."
*Bucky is my default name for anonymity

the penguin is the king of creating work for himself (and even more so for others) in an effort to prove his sweetness to the prospective client, and tries to find "sexy" new ideas or proposals to impress said client. he calls anything that he finds interesting or new, "sexy", and i have been hearing this word on sports talk radio a lot as well saying the Bears arent a very sexy team since they arent flashy and dont have much offense. this is improper usage. sexy is a hot babe in lingerie. sexy is a hot babe in a nice dress with high heels. sexy is reserved for hot babes. stop using it to describe the new innovative estimate you did penguin that neither impressed the customer nor won us the deal. to ESPN radio: if you think a football team is sexy (like the Colts, as multiple ESPN dudes have said this year), you are all homos. the penguin also uses the word "caveat" as a verb, which drives me crazy.

in other news, mikeandtim got ranked the #304 best blog in the world by a known blog tracking entity. here is the link if you do not believe. not sure how this happened though, since the only regular reader is one "Dr. Swiss of Limberger".

The blog tracking entity known as Curt Awakening, says, you have a lot of work to do before you make it to 304....(the top 3004 blogs are probably reserved for my future creations....)

The number on http://www.feeds4all.nl/ShowCat.aspx?Cat=223 in front of the blogname is not the rank position on Feeds4all.
The ranking on THAT page is determined by the moment the feed was captured. On top of the page it says "N.B. Ordered by moment webfeed was captured"

On http://www.feeds4all.nl/FeedDetails.aspx?FeedID=48530
however you see the actual Feeds4all ranking. The moment this comment was written this blog is on position 238.

4) The American Starship Eagle (wrestler Danny Spivey) wearing yellow tights and furry boots to complement his tall,tanned, then-slender physique: sexy or gay?

5) George Michael from the post-Wham still-with-Sony years: sexy, gay, or gay but still sexy?

6) Shake and Bake: sexy or gay?
