Trying to Explain The Chickens
As I tried to explain the whole broohaha about the "chicken" incident to my husband. I had to wait several minutes as he laughed and laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. Its a bit embarrassing, but yes, as I explained to him, feelings are hurt, chickens are hated, and haters are plucking at more than just feathers.
It all started with Classic One's blog. His is a branch off from Halima's and Evia's blog. Its a bit like the "stage two" portion of the whole interracial blogosphere scene from Evia and Halima.
There are lots of people on C-1's blog. The comments can easily go up to the hundreds. And all types of topics are discussed. Well, every so often the talk goes off topic. Some have come to make little jokes about chicken and African villages. Fine. Those who didn't want to read those could skip those jokes.
But things escalated as the whole comment section would derail from chicken jokes, to complaints about chicken jokes, to defenders of chicken jokes, to chicken jokes again. Finally the whole blog feathered out into one big barbecue of roasted chicken parts!
ENTER THE HATERS
This being a golden opportunity for those who like to cut up and divide, the Haters sunk their teeth into the blog.
Soon, name calling ensued, personal insults were made, accusation of spying, basically people started acting like a bunch of chickens squawking at each other!
Now, a fowl odor is in our midst. People are distrusting of others loyalties, others are afraid to come back to C-1s blog. Misunderstandings are high. I wouldn't even be surprised if some began to think C-1 stood for Chicken 1!!!!!
CLEARING THE AIR
Folks, can we see how silly things have gotten? Can we get over this whole potpie of a mess? This rotten egg is too hilarious. Besides, we need to get back to the focus of things.
Interracial dating. As my husband said to me many a times, a WM who really wants a BW [i.e. he likes his 'dark meat'] is not going to let any chicken talk deter him [from getting to his bone -brackets, my additions]. Let's stay focused gang!
