Poking Fun At Oneself — An Art Too Rarely Practiced

by | Jan 13, 2005

from Chocolate and Vodka: In a case which has stunned and shocked the blogging world, long-time blogger and self-proclaimed blog ‘expert’ Suw Charman was today fired by the Blogosphere for alleged gross moral turpitude. Ms Charman was brought before a disciplinary hearing late last night, long after she should have been in bed, and summarily dismissed, sources close to the blogger said.

In a statement read to the press today, a tearful Ms Charman said, “This is an outrageous abuse of power and the Blogosphere should be ashamed of itself. This isn’t about gross moral turpitude, it’s just a vendetta against me because I never wrote my own blog software in BBEdit back in 1998.”

The Blogosphere refused to comment on the case, saying that there were privacy laws to be abided by, and besides, the less it said the quicker the whining old cow would vanish off the news radar.


Ms Charman later told a friend, “I was starting to think that I was going to have to start posting taudry, poorly written fabrications of my life as a slut, or become an x-rated vidcamgirl, in order to get myself a book deal, but being fired by the Blogosphere is a far easier way of doing it. Not only do I now no longer need to get my tits out for the lads, I can pretend to be hard done by and feed off everyone’s sympathy.”
