The Island Of Misfit Bloggers

It can only be found when you are not looking for it. It's in the last place you would ever think to look. It lies somewhere beyond the horizon of awareness, between insomnia and stupor. It is both a forbidding place and a playground at the same time. Things there are not what they appear until you take another look. There are no sounds, a shroud of silence surrounds you until you listen. It is crowded, over-populated until you realize that you are alone.

Welcome to the Island of Misfit Bloggers. No sovereignty, it is a land of autocracy with no leader and no one to be ruled. A gossamer wraith in cyber space, it is visibly unseen. It is a world of blind vision and vociferous silence.

The populace is littered with an impressive array of characters who are nondescript and famous, as well as those demonstrative shy souls who hide in overt frankness. The elder statesman, Old Horsetail Snake may be the youngest at heart. Now that he had made his pile, he was lost betwixt needing a pile and leaving one.

He once was a champion two-legged not-so-thouroughbred. He can claim victories in the Kentucky Sombrero, the Boldfont Stakes and the Freakness. When he was retired to stud, he claimed, "It's a messy job, but someone's gotta do it." He was sire to such famous offspring as Where's The Secretary At , Girl-a-day, Seattle Slaw, and of course Stewball.

Offshore there is a Pirate controlling the waters where no ships sail. The mayor, Let's Make a Deal-Monty with the aid of the local psychiatrist, Tan Lucy Pez, are looking for Windfall Woman to pad their coffers. The Long Iron of the law watches them closely.

Jumping John-In-The-Box, the island personnel manager has his assistant, Snake, creep around to keep an eye on the goings-on of the island. In the center of the island stands the Unhappy Thinker, Rodin's prototype for his more famous statue. Around the statue, denizens of the island have gathered for a concert put together by Rilla and performed by the popular recording artist Music Whore. Accompanying her on the guitar is Stringman and Blue Dilly on the bass.

Reporting on the event, Miss Cellania will be providing pictures and links to the internet. Refreshments are being handled by Kat at her franchise Keep The Coffee Coming. Blessings and the Benediction will be given by The Pope. In the event that there is an album produced from the concert, Aral will be on hand to capture the album cover for her series Bizarre Album Saturday in Pezland (BASIP). Cheri will be the audience striking up conversations with the married men and Big Dick will be looking for large models for his series Fattie Friday.

Please note: This post was put up for fun. I mean in no way to imply that any of those bloggers above, are in fact misfits. I also want to say that any one not mentioned is a misfit. That was a joke!!
....If posting a blog and having a site makes one a misfit, then I have to include myself. This was just an idea I had sitting as a started draft since about the 15th of December. Short of any fresh ideas, I decided to resurrect this all but forgotten project.
....Perhaps hungover from the days before and including Christmas, I am a little tired and a little less than energetic to let the creative juices flow. Or I have become lazy ... Or I don't care ...
....Or I am a ... Misfit Blogger.
