21 Jun 07Another cost-cutting measure

Masako had to delete the WordPress users. So, if you set one up, it’s gone. Please try to pick up the shattered pieces of your life and move on. Membership really does not bring rewards anyway.

It’s money that brings rewards. And each one of those user IDs cost us $4,500.

It’s true.

Post coming later.

    Ha ha! You were gettin’ gyped anyway! I can get you WordPress IDs off of BitTorrent for free. And even if that doesn’t work I know I guy that can get ’em without footprints (if you get my meaning) for about two bills.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Doesn’t apply to me personally, but thanks just the same.

    Nice to see you got out of bed at a reasonable hour today young man… I swear, you’re going to sleep your life away…

    Oops. I forgot to change my name back after going incognito last night. Maybe I should get a WP ID… oh. Wait.

  4. What’s a user ID?

    And is mine 3?

  5. disgruntled cynic says:

    Hey, John, when’s the staff page going to be updated to reflect the recent tragedy. I know there’s budget constraints and all but… This site is all about the facts and accuracy, right?


    John? Right?

    I think you should delete WordPress actually.
    Then you won’t have to worry about WordPress users anymore, let alone their cost…

    What were the WordPress users?

    Was I missing out on something?

    Am I not getting the full CARS experience? Cause that’s what I paid for.

    Bastards better not’ve had tequila flapjacks! I bet they did. I bet there was a lounge and fancy bathrooms. Bastards!

    I’m back from the future! What’d I miss? You guys are gonna love the iPhone Nano. Let me just say that there is no BlueTooth headset needed for that one ifyouknowhatimean. I really don’t understand why I could go forward in time but coming back I couldn’t return to the spot I left from. That’s just the way these things work, ya know?

    The Entity is what? Well, he told me that… I mean he once told me that these kinds of things happen to his…species(?) sometimes.

    There were WordPress logins? And I missed them? Damn temporal distortions. If I agree to pay the $4,500 can I get one?

    Holy crap – top ten! And I didn’t have to stay up until 2:00am ET to do it!

    Hey, wait a minute… weren’t you supposed to have run out of money about 40 minutes before the post? You work for free? If you’d really like to work for free, please come work for me. I could use the help. My typing/spelling has been horrible this evening.

    I don’t think I should bring this up since it might be a sensitive subject. But I can’t help myself. Fake Steve Jobs made the Business 2.0 (that’s a magazine; do y’all read dead trees?) list of the 50 Who Matter Now. He’s #37. John, if it is you, now might be a good time to take a bow.

    Uh… What? What!?

    I’ve always been confused, so this doesn’t feel any different. I’ll sell you a full page of user IDs in 8-point Helvetica for $4499.99 plus shipping and handling. I’ll throw in a year of American Beet Farmer at no extra charge.

    No need to thank me. I’m just trying to keep the inner tube afloat. What are friends for, after all?

    Just biding my time until the real article is posted…


    C’mon, I don’t have all day: just the remainder.

    Okay, I give up.

    Ahnyer Keester is on to something there. He fails to mention the helium infused iPhone Nano. It just floats on a tether to an ear piercing. It will be called the hePhone. Marketing is having trouble with the West Hollywood demographics.

    Also, the mobius iPhone is in beta. So thin it only has one side.

  16. Huh? says:

    My Pants™ are not amused.

    I, personally, just don’t get it.
    Not, the post. That’s funny.
    It. You know… It.

    My Pants™ keep getting in the way.

    Does this mean CARS will think I’m Spam again?

    I liked being officially not spam 🙁

    I never did get those WordPress references, now I don’t have to worry about them anymore,
    thanks John.c
