someone needs a hug

(Amarillo) Panhandle Truth Squad is nothing if not perverse, and in the interest of perversity, I have added a link to Pink Dome to our blogroll. We recently exchanged links (is it just me, or does that sound kinky?) with Texas Liberal and now TL has gone off and started a blog war with PD. Personally, we only start blog wars with conservative bloggers, but hey! that's easy for us to say; we live in the Pan-freaking-handle.

Anyhoo, at various points during this six-day blog war, either Texas Liberal or Pink Dome has issued edicts banning 1) cussin', 2) the term "netroots", 3) the word "stupid", 4) something called an "anti-woman attitude", 5) referring to oneself in the third person, 6) the word “snark”, 7) the word “edge” 8) the word “buzz”, 9) Wonkette, and 10) civility. As an occasional violator of all of the above (I mean, not Wonkette; I've never violated Wonkette), I decided to throw kisses to both blogs and, additionally, to start this paragraph with the with "anyhoo," which just may piss them both off.

We (how do TL and PD feel about the Pretentious Royal "We"? How do they feel about Gratuitous Capital Letters?) cuss when we need to but not all the time. Sometimes the tamed form of a profanity is funnier, and when it is, we use that. Sometimes the actual naughty word is more effective, and when it is we're not afraid to use it.

But, in the spirit of inter-blog hyper-wired trans-pajama connectivity, we offer the remainder of this post, surely acceptable to both Texas Liberal and Pink Dome:

We like puppies!
