Freak Magnet

The other day, I wrote a seemingly normal (for me, anyway) post. Then things got more interesting. I received a comment that was both spam and someone taking offense at my words. The words in question? Tin foil hat. Oh yeah. While I didn't approve the comment (I don't approve of spam. Or Spam, for that matter.), it was just too good to not do something with. So for your reading pleasure, I present... The Comment:

Jeremy has left a new comment on your post "Life is Funny - Things that make me go hmmm...":

I have a problem with your use of the term, "tin foil hat". Everyone knows that only a steel V2K Cap will protect against mind control weaponry.

Go ahead. Click on the link. Expand your mind. I'll wait here.


Oh yeah, they're out there. And apparently looking for blogs mentioning tin foil hats. And since I have word verification on my comments, I'm guessing that it was a real live person who took offense and wrote this comment.


So, it appears our friend, Jeremy, makes his own special hats. What, tin foil not good enough for ya? It's for more than just covering leftovers, you know.


You can also wrap your favorite 70's band in it to keep them fresh. Hey, could somebody please get Björn more tin foil? Really. He's showing a little too much freshness.

We need our tin foil! Yes, even for making hats. Because those aliens and secret government agencies are out to steal our brainwaves! You know they're out there...


Now, because I'm such a giver (which I remind you of constantly), I've got directions for you on how to make your own tin foil hat. You know you'll need one.


And while you're at it, why don't you make one for your dog, too? That dog has seen way too much to be left unprotected.


Now if you'll excuse me. There's a very large butterfly net with my name on it.

LOL! LOL! LOL! Oh, this is too funny!
Might this have an underlying meaning, having to do with Glen Beck?

Sweet toasted paranoia!!

I thought that comment was a joke until I saw his page!!!

Makes sense though, because if I'm worried about the State using East German microwave technology the best way to preserve your most valuable organ is to wrap it in tin-foil.

Okay. This has never happened to me before, ever, but when I read the line, "You can also wrap your favorite 70's band in it to keep them fresh," I actually spewed my own spit on the screen and keyboard of my MacBook Pro. If this thing shorts out, I'm holding you responsible.

100 points. Wow.

I love this post! There is a restaurant here that makes you your very own tin foil hat when you dine there. There is something to it.

Be sure you stop by today for a last minute opportunity to participate in two giveaways for tomorrow.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I still say you are better off using Reynold's Wrap than that cheap generic stuff! THIS IS YOUR MIND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT!!! Shouldn't you protect it with the very best? You are worth it, Wendy. YOU are worth it....
