The Cure May Be Worse Than The Disease

At about one o’ clock yesterday, someone from a bank of IP addys belonging to the City College of Chicago got to my blog by entering the following into a Google search:


Young Lady (I’m presuming here, but it seems a safe bet), might I urge you to reconsider this particular course of action? I know that the Feds have tightened up the bankruptcy laws, but this seems to be a bit of a–well, “scorched earth” approach to solving your problem. How about selling your plasma? Or dealing dope? Do you really need both corneas? Or you could always go the surrogate mother route.

Besides, I’m not sure that the convents let you start off your vow of poverty with an overdraft. πŸ˜›

    “Become a nun, Bad credit” is now my new slogan for everything.

    Now that deserves the Matt Hammond “genuinely disturbing” Seal of Approval. :mrgreen:

    Exactly when were you discussing becoming a nun, Roo? 😯 I must have missed that post… πŸ˜†

    By the way, I really appreciate the new line o’ smileys for posting, not to mention the fix for the text box going past the right side of the screen. It’s nice to be able to see what I type here. πŸ˜‰

    Hey Dalek,

    The funny thing is that after I posted this little blurb yesterday, I got a hit on my site from a surfer in Oregon who did a Google search for the exact same phrase. There must be some news article floating around about joining a convent to escape your creditors or something.

    As for the formatting stuff: I added a plugin to post the smilies above the editing window, and as for the text box not bleeding over any more, that must have just been in a recent update to WordPress. Never noticed that effect myself. But you’re welcome.

    And I believe it was me that mentioned becoming a nun. On one of my work rant posts probably. I did not, however, mention it in the same phrase as “bad credit”. Not sure where the combination of the two came from. I REALLY don’t think the church would like it if you only became a nun to escape your creditors.

    Would that come under the heading of “Sanctuary”? πŸ˜›
