"Harumph, gentlemen, harumph! We gotta save our phoney-baloney jobs!"
Harumphing, as this example from Blazing Saddles shows, is for politicians,
corporate heads and such like, but not for bloggers. Not for this one anyhow.
So if I've engaged in harumphing in the past, I apologize and promise to cut it out.
Blogs that are pretentious are boring. Ditto for blogs that are portentious. My purpose
here is to entertain (myself if no one else, more about that later) and amuse. If any
serious thought is provoked, you have only yourself to blame.
