Hail Blogdonia!

Rufus T. Firefly was president of Freedonia in the Marx Brothers' movie DUCK SOUP, which I am pretty partial to. Thus, I am announcing a new word: BLOGDONIA, borrowing from the Marx Brothers, Hail Freedonia.

If you think this country's bad off now, just wait till I get through with it!

Since Freedonia was a fake country, it seems only fitting to use the term Blogdonia to describe the so-called consensual hallucination that is cyberspace, and the many neighborhoods and gangs therein.

I also like the term Bloglandia, but that's a bit too classical-music for me. BLOGOSPHERE sounds like Fox News. Bloggorrhea is nice, but decidedly negative!

Blogdonia is perfect. Who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?

ah, Groucho: the only Marx for whom i'd happily and unreservedly become a Marxist.

I am a big Harpo fan! I love slapstick as an art form, and very few people can really do it: Carol Burnett, Gene Wilder, Dick Van Dyke, Laurel and Hardy, that dog sequence in SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, etc.

Very politically incorrect, I know! Although I really don't like the violent kind (Three Stooges).
