We Work For Cheese has never been a political blog. The closest we ever came was when Mike tried to blame the fall of the Canadian government on Steve Jobs. Politics is a messy business, with elections rife with smear campaigns and trash talking by people who want to run a country.
I know with the Presidential elections looming in the U.S., everyone will automatically think of America’s penchant for negative campaigning. But any country that holds real elections is not exempt from this practice. As a matter of fact, during the 1993 Canadian federal elections, the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada ran ads denigrating Liberal candidate Jean Chretien by focusing on his partial facial paralysis, suffered as a result of Bell’s Palsy. It backfired horrifically, and Chretien won the election by a landslide.
So, no, Canada is not exempt. But why am I talking politics all of a sudden? Because We Work For Cheese is campaigning for votes. Last week I wrote about why we needed a blog makeover as an entry for a blog contest being held over at Tribal Blogs. There are 3 finalists: We Work For Cheese, NoNameDufus, and Salmon Like The Fish.
And, I admit, I smack talked Dufus over on Facebook, and on his blog.
But in the end, I realized the error of my ways. I apologize. I was wrong.
Don’t get me wrong, we do want to win. But not like that. We want to win the right way. Which means kissing YOUR behinds!! Yes, in the end, loyal readers and dearest friends, I realized that to lose with our dignity and pride intact sucks gigantic moose appendages. WE WANT TO WIN!!
And what magnificent backsides you all have!! None finer! You are the wittiest, most intelligent, funny and talented bunch of good-looking people we’ve ever had the privilege to come in contact with. And not just good-looking, but Hollywood A-list celeb gorgeous!!
