Pie and surrealism.

Sissy Willis comments on that Huffington's Toast photoshop.

Speaking of Althouse-related photoshopping, remember this one?

AND: Little Miss Attila says it's time for a restraining order. Aw, but look how merciful Allah's being.

As I said there, I think that that may be even spookier than that BK King guy appearing out of nowhere, at your window.

Huffingtoast is far, far, better than the original. Today, I was esp. enjoying the post by not Tom Cruise on Scientology.

Oh, and I just refreshed, and foundd and interview between not Glenn and not "Ms." Althouse. Good work woman, making the big time here. Apparently a theory on blogosphere - in part:

Ms. Althouse: Good for you. My word yes. Well Glenn, what is it that it is - this theory of mine. Well, this is what it is - my theory that I have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine

Blogfather: (beginning to show signs of infatuation) Yes, I know it’s yours, what is it?

Ms. Althouse: Where? Oh, what is my theory? This is it. (clears throat at some length) My theory that belongs to me is as follows. (clears throat at great length) This is how it goes. The next thing I”m going to say is my theory. Ready?

Blogfather: Yes!

Ms. Althouse: My theory by Ann Althouse. Brackets Ms., brackets. This theory goes as follows and begins now. All blogs are get no traffic until Instalanched, then they get lots and lots of traffic, and then they get no traffic again. That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, and what it is too.
What can you say? One (not) law prof blogger interviewing another.

I must add that strategically, it may not have been a good idea to make your picture so prominent. Seen a bit of photoshopping recently, all with you as the victim.

Bruce: That's an old Monty Python routine. As for photoshopping my head onto other people's bodies, I can imagine worse, but I didn't particularly like having John Cleese's body!

Here's the original.

I think you worry to much. Toast goes after a lot of my favorite bloggers (you included) and people, and it seems like fair game, fairly gentle, satire to me.

It's also laugh out loud funny. The honey pie joke about put me on the floor.

I see zero malice behind it. Just humor through exaggeration, brilliant use of repitition, and silliness.

They're much nicer to you than others and seem to know exactly where to draw the line and with whom.

Besides, you rock and this is the price of being a star.

Thanks, Harry. If it really bothered me, I wouldn't give them links. I'm going on the "all publicity is good" theory.
