In addition to being humerous, Goober's posts draw attention to both
the Techsmith ads and the "paid for" section of the list, thus giving a
probably unintended boost to both Eric and Techsmith! A true win-win . .


Besides, it's "font twiddling," right?

Okay, so I'm thick.

I'm receiving various e-mails, pointing out that there is a cute series
ads for Snag-it written in "story" format in the Premium (read "paid
section of this list, which I don't normally read.

Goober wrote parodies of these, which I read without knowing what they
referred to. I got confused (much like I do when trying to understand
difference between Cholupas and Gorditas at Taco Bell), and wrote a post
that might have confused others more than Goober's.

Goober and I have since communicated offlist, and are now planning to
attend an STC-sponsored font-fondling seminar together in Tahiti later
this year, in an effort to increase my satire sensitivity.

So all's well that ends well. I think.
