Ministry of Propaganda - 06/March/2003: "It's a parody..."

It's a parody...

Well, The Shamrockshire Eagle convinced me after a discussion that Germany stinks is a parody. I still have my problems with it as I fell for it and so might others who might do more stupid things. But I have to admit that I fell for it and possibly overreacted to it.

Well, it's funny you should say that, because I'm having doubts the other
way now! Ah no, it *must* a parody -- the "big boots" bit is even dafter
than the "Boston tea party" stuff. But still, a strange doubt lingers
in my mind... Maybe I've been reading too many warblogs too...

Hm. If we're lucky the owner of the site reads his logfiles and drops in here to leave his comment?

The company I work for is mentioned on the France stinks site! Does that make me a pawn of Saddam?

I'm too tired to think about that now. Only one thing: I can't take any of the warbloggers serious and I don't get upset about them any more. I just laugh about them now. Simple as that.

Well, now,if you're going to believe what der Spiegel tells you...

I still think, on balance, thought I'm open to persuasion, that it is an
extremely sophisticated piss-take. It is done very well, so well that
I *was* utterly convinced at first. But consider:

a) it's too articulate;

b) there are little clues scattered around; in the phrasing of things,
and in little pieces which are just *too* absurd.

But in any case, don't get too excited. This is only the Internet.
Most people have better things to do with their time. The warbloggers &
co. are self-selecting and unrepresentative. So, even if this site were
not a parody, it wouldn't be something to get would up about. There are
wackos in very country.
