In Retrospect, I Suppose It Was Inevitable

Ghlaghghee (the cat what I taped bacon to, for those of you who don't actually know Bacon Cat's real name) apparently has her own blog, and relates her side of the story.

No, I didn't do this. And Ghlaghghee, who is napping here in the room with me, is studiously ignoring the computer screen. Hmmmm.

So, who's the perp? Krissy or Athena?

John Scalzi | September 14, 2006 08:55 AM

Neither. That's the thing.

John Scalzi | September 14, 2006 09:00 AM

I haven't the slightest clue who is doing it.

Chang | September 14, 2006 09:01 AM


Al Qaeda?

When in doubt, assume a terrorist plot.

Or it could be a "vast right-wing conspiracy!"

Janiece, "Or it could be a 'vast right-wing conspiracy!'"

No doubt started by the bird lobby, supported through funding by the mice and their unholy alliance with the chipmonks.

John Scalzi | September 14, 2006 10:05 AM

Don't even start with the chipmunks. Man. I could tell you stories.

Steve Buchheit | September 14, 2006 10:24 AM

As one who does battle with the ferocious chipmunk hordes myself, with a little help from the furry beast, I understand, John, I understand.

Janiece | September 14, 2006 10:30 AM


I thought you were supposed to be leaving for Denver, not shuddering at Chipmunk tales.

Enjoy our fair city, by the way - there's plenty to do here if your schedule isn't too full with schmoozing.

Just so you know, here is a site you can submit your bacon on a cat pic to:


Real site. Swear.

Grand Puba | September 14, 2006 11:56 AM

Not to be too cruel but apparently literary skills don't run in your family - your cat writes like crap. But then who am I to point fingers, I have them.

Q | September 14, 2006 12:17 PM

Who knew your cat was in Human Resources?

Catbert has competition I guess.

Chad Orzel | September 14, 2006 08:56 PM

The best part of this whole deal (as I just said on my own blog) is that Ghlaghghee's blog is ranked higher than 98% of the blogs indexed by Technorati.

(To be honest, I was half afraid that Fark would've linked that, too, and I'd find myself ranked lower than the BaconCat...)

Paul | September 14, 2006 09:11 PM

So, not only is someone writing a parody blog of something related to you (for at least the second time), but they're ripping off your bandwidth by hotlinking to the baconcat photo as well. The nerve of some people.

John Scalzi | September 14, 2006 09:16 PM

The nerve! I shall set my lawyers upon them!

Soni | September 14, 2006 10:59 PM

Don't even start with the chipmunks. Man. I could tell you stories.

Is there bacon involved? Because if there is bacon involved, I think we've already heard that story.
