November 18, 2007

Dearest and Silliest Ministry Staff Members,

I have Mentioned Previously that We at the Ministry would Greatly Welcome Persons who would like to be Official Co-authors of the Official Ministry of Silly Blogs Blog.

Veronica, Our Chief Silliness Advisor, has asked the important question about the Potential Position of Official Co-author: “Does that involve real work?”

Ah, that all depends on what you consider “Real Work.”

I can without any Qualms, solemnly swear that Co-author Positions at the Ministry of Silly Blogs do not currently, Just Now, or at the Present Time, Entail, nor are they expected to Entail at Any Point in the Foreseeable Future, any of the Following:

  2. Operating Heavy Machinery
  3. Digging Trenches, Wells, Pits or Holes of any Dimension
  4. Motivational Speaking to Auditoriums Full of Bored Adolescents
  5. Trapping Wild Animals
  6. Remuneration

Positions of Official Co-authorship are Expected to Involve the following:

  1. Verifying that Submitted Links of Silliness Adhere to the Official Criteria to Determine the Silliness of Websites
  2. Posting LInks of Silliness, ideally with Some Sort of Brief Description of their Silliness
  3. Participating in the Establishment of Official Criteria to Determine the Silliness of Websites
  4. Writing with Excessive Use of Capitalization

Additionally, Co-Author positions offer the following Optional Possibilities:

  1. Potential for Advancement in the areas of Personal Silliness Development
  2. The Posting or Cross-Posting of Original Silly Content
  3. Replying to Comments on Posts of Silliness
  4. Scouring the Internets, with Particular Focus on the Blogosphere, for Silly Content Worthy of Ministry Attention
  5. Chuckling, Chortling, Giggling, Guffawing, Snickering, Snorting, Snarfing, or (in limited Contexts) Cackling
  6. Noodling

Please Note that the Above Lists are not meant to be Exhaustive of the Possibilities for any of the Above Categories. There are many Additional Duties which Would Not be Expected to be Performed.

    Dear Alejna,

    I would like to thank you for your reply to my application for the position of Chief Silliness Advisor, and your kind disregard for the fact that I am by far more qualified for the position than anyone else could possibly be.

    However, I would very much like to accept the position of

    “Exceptionally Imposing Figurehead with No Actual Responsibilities”

    This is the perfect post for me, and one at which I intend to excel.

    As your new Exceptionally Imposing Figurehead with No Actual Responsibilities, I regret to inform you that I cannot possibly agree to co-author anything, as that would require fulfilling an actual responsiiblity. Although, I might consider doing it anyway, because it is the nature of my postition to do whatever I want to do, whenever I want to do it, and to be very haughty about it.

  2. Crap, now I’ve not a position. I don’t know what to do…
    Here’s the Loop and me -> (0)me
    (just outside)
