“We’ve heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that it is not true.” Robert Wilensky

Coots are modest human beings. We don’t hold high regard for our intelligence or marketing skills. That appraisal is reinforced daily when we check for comments here at our blog or review the reader stats. We are not about to produce literary genius here. There will be no Coot Sonnets pledging our unrequited love for all time; no epic poems glorifying Coots past. Our only softening in the realm of art is Justin’s sweet kettle bells
playing from time to time.
The web is a circus sideshow full of smoke and mirrors, snake oil and pretense. There is a sucker born every minute and from what we see, they all have blogs. They bought the notion they probably learned in the public school system that they have something to say and even worse that somebody cares. The web makes it easy to indulge that ignorance so here we are today with billions of words  of drivel to wade through each day when we venture into the web.

So the Coot message for today, shared modestly with our small select group of discriminating readers. Spread the word about Coots. Here you won’t find snake oil or smoke and mirrors. What you see is what you get. We don’t know shit! We don’t pretend to know shit! But we have been around the block a few times. We have seen much and we don’t like it. And that’s what we share. We tell it like it is. We call ’em as we see ’em. And we don’t demean our readers by sucking up to them. So if you want straight talk and real opinion, you are in the right place. If you want monkeys writing Shakespeare, try the Huffington Post.  Sign up for our mailing list and you even get priceless lessons on how you can develop your Cootness.  Where else can you get that?

  1. Ralph, this is getting scary. The other day I do a movie post…and so do you.

    Today I come here and see monkeys in the title. A half hour ago I posted about a…monkey (chimpanzee actually…close enough).

  2. Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.

  3. Ralph,

    Great stuff.

    I absolutely LOVED the line “There is a sucker born every minute and from what we see, they all have blogs.”

    Genius and true

    I am looking to successful web entrepreneurs to teach me how to take advantage of that,

  5. Ralph, the second I read that line I started planning a blog post around it…properly attributed, of course…LOL

  6. Bob,
    You mean you actually wrote a post the other day. That, indeed, is scary.
