100th Post Extravaganza

We don't tend to have much to celebrate here at Muppets For Justice. It's very rare that a day goes by where we don't get spat on in the street, or a celebrity publicist sends us a letter bomb in retaliation for something we've written. However, today there shall be cake, for this is the 100th post on this blog!

You may think that 100 posts has been a long time coming, and indeed it has. My update schedule has been a little bit lacking to say the least. But let me assure you, dear reader, that enough material has now been written to last until September at least, with much more currently in the works. You can expect updates at least twice a week (Mondays and Fridays) for the next two months guaranteed. Hopefully, this momentum will allow me to keep on top of things and stick to schedule for much longer than that.

Anyway, since this is an important milestone for this lil' ol' blog, Muppets For Justice has decided to be incredibly self indulgent and has produced an exclusive interview for you. We asked sultry screen starlet, Scarlett Johansson to interview chief writer Addman. For more information, please use your eyes on the words below:

Scarlett: Firstly, I'd like to start by thanking you for taking time out of your busy schedule to be here.

Addman: Not a problem.

Scarlett: Secondly, there's something I'd like to ask you. What kind of name is Addman?

Addman: It's just a nickname. It's something I've used for a long time now-

Scarlett: Makes you sound like numerical supervillain. Anyway, where do you get your inspiration?

Addman: I just try to see the funny side of current events. Occasionally my posts come across as a bit ranty and my political leanings tend to come to the forefront, but mostly it's just a piss take. Nothing on here should be considered to be anything more than tongue-in-cheek.

Scarlett: Is there any subject that is off limits?

Addman: Very few subjects are, although I try to avoid tragedies directly. As such, I won't be making jokes about the Norwegian massacre itself, but the piss poor news coverage and the religious fundamentalist responsible are fair game if you ask me.

Scarlett: What can we expect from Muppets For Justice in the future?

Addman: More of the same, I expect. I know that my writing has a distinctive style, but I hope it doesn't get too samey for some people. There are new topics of discussion cropping up all the time, so I hope we don't cover much of the same ground over and over.

Scarlett: Where is Fort?

Addman: He was last seen leaving a shady establishment, walking gingerly and wearing a latex sailor suit. In all honesty, he's got his own life and I'm still stuck here, trying to be funny on the Internet.

Scarlett: Thank you for your time.

Addman: Thanks. Oh, and I didn't want to be rude, but can you wear a top next time you interview someone? It's rather distracting.

I hope that has been illuminating for you. Anyway, I'll leave you with some posts from yesteryear. These are a small selection of my personal favourites that I'd like to highlight again for anyone who's interested:

Queue Nation - A queue outside a department store takes on a life of it's own.

The Shalom Saga - An Indonesian woman contacts me to get a free trip to England. I string her on for as long as possible (part 2 here).

Pointers On Last Night's Orgy - Constructive criticism for a better orgy.

Top Ten Nazi Superweapons - Interesting read about, well, Nazi superweapons. Written by Fort, this article still brings in a lot of traffic even now.

Thank you one and all. Business returns to normal next Monday.

Thanks go to Lana_Lite for providing Scarlett's questions.
