An apology

I would like to take this opportunity, on a late Friday evening when no one is reading, to sincerely apologize for the recent tone of this blog. Among the most recent subjects, we have addressed luh-vers of the royals, "enema cocktails" (which is an awful joke in and of itself), disaster relief from the Playboy Mansion, male enhancement spam mail, at least one popular gay novelty band, and Roger Calero.

While we do not, in any way, pretend to be a children's or family friendly site, preferring to attract reasonable if inmature adults, it behooves us to take stern measures to make sure that children who accidentally stray on to this site, in the mistaken and persistent hope that they are about to enter the depressing world of Lemony Snicket, do not accidentally come across any of the above subject matter (especially Roger Calero) or wander into links that take them to frightening photographs of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles like this one, or this one, or especially this one (Sorry, I meant this one). You get the idea.

From now on The Dictionary of Unfortunate Ideas will carry on its masthead (banner, whatever, you Internet geeks) the following warning label in 36 point, bold, sans-serif font:

"Warning: This site may at times contain references to Enemas, Male Enhancement Spam Mail, Roger Calero, photos of Prince Charles in a kilt, Camilla Parker Bowles, and accompanying legal analysis. Oh, and ...This is not a Lemony Snicket site! They are much more depressing."

Seriously, it's not always like this.

****************

Update: I couldn't get the Blogger template to include the warning. You're on your own kids.
