A couple quick notes about the site for all (approximately) 844,000,000,000 of our readers...
1) Hayden Fry's Moustache Ride is in the house. There's two things we hold dear at BHGP:
substance a twisted sense of humor and analysis the ability to go Beyond Photoshop. To that end, we have promoted Hayden Fry's Moustache Ride to staff writer, so he's part of the family now. It was largely just an administrative move; now we don't have to go through the trouble of promoting everything he does to the main page. Yep, no more filter on HFMR, whatever he wants to put on the front page goes there, automatically.
2) JoePa's birthday is next week! You may notice, if you scroll down far enough on the left, a neat little "widget" (okay, image with a link) advertising what must be a Blogfrican first: a surprise party... on the Internet... for an 82-year-old man. As near as we can tell, it's completely earnest and genuine, if a bit unusual, so go say hi to JoePaBirthday.blogspot.com. Go on, do it. And be nice.
3) Our readers are awesome. Without your comments, FanPosts, and feedback, we'd just be shouting at and into the wind here, so very, very thank you from everyone at BHGP. Our FanPosts have been exceptionally high-quality lately; even the ones that don't fit on the front page often spark discussions that last for several days, and they just plain make the site better. You guys keep playing your cards right, and we'll get you a picture of Hawkeye State spread eagle on a pool table for Christmas. Nude and graphic. You just gotta keep earning it.
