Why was I not informed that Eggagog returned after a long hiatus and took to tweeting in March 2013?

I was just saying I missed Eggagog. I was Eggagog's biggest fan (unless Eggagog had a bigger fan, which would have been a tad unbalanced of that other fan). I googled "Who was Eggagog?" and found the brief Twitter emergence and resubmergence of Eggagog.

It was a brief, shining moment in March 2013.

Why did this come up?, you may ask. The answer is: On today's post, Lake shore watch, The Cracker Emcee, looking at my photo of a synagogue, asked "Church, synagogue, or train station?" I said "Synagogue!" And Meade, reading that, said: "Synagogue? Eggagog!"

All I can say is: Molotov!

Funny, I was just thinking of him; you had some spammer doing all caps and, like you, it flashed upon me...Eggagog!

Your post made me think of Eggemoggin Reach.

Great sailing !

Lord, I am so happy I don't have a clue what the hell you are talking about.
I don't Twitter. I don't care what anyone else has to say, really. Plus after seeing that scientist guy get reamed over a shirt, and burst into tears (!) because people were so mean to him on twitter I can say with confidence that I shall not Tweet.
Twitter appears to turn you into a twit.

"Twitter appears to turn you into a twit."

Good pickup !

Unless you overcook the Eggagog, you shouldn't need a molotov. I prefer to undercook, and have a soft-boiled Eggagog, than to risk producing something inedible. I have also on occasion ate a raw Eggagog.

All I can say is: Aragog!

10 tweets, following 24, followed by 8-- that could be my twitter account.

My thoughts are pretty much the same. Only birds tweet. That old Jackson Five song "Rocking Robin" is now stuck in my head. So I'll be with all the little birdees on Jaybird Street!

He's back??!! OMG!

Ann Althouse said...

He was back, but he left before I noticed, so he's just as gone as ever.

By the way, where is Bissage?

Thank you for the introduction, the time I spent there has made the rest of my afternoon better than it would otherwise have been.

You are hereby advised that Eggagog ceased all internet activity in 2006, following his final blog post regarding the hammers.

Anything credited to Eggagog which has appeared the net since then is the work of impostors.
