Blogging Life

Once upon a time there was a dog named Bracket. He was a tall dog with a pale coat, almost like an earthy tone. One day Bracket was blogging and feeling a lot of pressure to make money. He knew he had the right ticket with “click ads” but they took over such a large portion of his blog, he decided to torch the idea as it was making him mad.  

It wasn’t until Bracket realized it was his blogging anniversary that he decided to take a fresh look at what he was doing. Was he somehow locked into something? He learned a lot this one day as he took a futile leap to look honestly at his work. He realized the cascade of followers at the beginning was a sort of peal in response to his originality. Now, like an old pair of slippers, followers were putting him aside, no longer needing him.  

In the end, Bracket realized the party was over, he was not willing to keep pushing forward.

These are my answers:

1. Why is Royal Blood considered blue?
Because then the police know if they find the blood it isn’t from a bad guy
2. What is a Blue Moon? A beer
3. What was the song ‘Blue is the Colour’ about? It was about all things blue to teach children – blueberries, blue sky, blue birds…
4. What is meant by blue collar? The first real polo shirts were a light blue color because white gets too dirty so they just called them blue collar instead of polo or button-down
5. What is a blue bonnet? A cheap brand of margarine
6. What did Little Boy Blue play? Before or after the pedophile charges?
7. What changed from brown to blue according to the song? The kids’ poop that went to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory
8. Where will you find a Blue Nun? At a synagogue
9. Why mustn’t you step on his Blue Suede Shoes? Because it will wreck the fabric, possibly taking the soft layer of suede, revealing an artificial black base
10. What kind of bird has blue feet? Probably penguins because they always have cold feet from standing on ice.
