For other TWoNNCotY Competition Questions, see the scoreboard at the upper left hand corner of the blog.

Guest Blogger Adjustment
A few days ago, I mentioned that there would be a Guest Blogger Adjustment. Here is how that will work. Based upon the status of each guest blogger, they will receive a number of bonus rolls:

1 bonus roll: KETCHUP status
2 bonus rolls: MAYO status (or, SUPER KETCHUP status)
3 bonus rolls: SOY SAUCE status
4 bonus rolls: MAGGI SAUCE status

Of course, no guest blogger has achieved MAGGI SAUCE status yet, so no one will be receiving 4 bonus rolls. Snakeye, please roll for the following guest bloggers:

MonkeyPig (16--SOY SAUCE status) -- 3 rolls
Freelance Midget (11--MAYO status) -- 2 rolls
Cl. Panic (21--SOY SAUCE status) -- 3 rolls
Man from U.N.C.L.E. (9--SUPER KETCHUP status) -- 2 rolls
Sushi Cat (6--MAYO status) -- 2 rolls, plus 2 rolls for being the bestest kitty in the world = 4 rolls
Willy Wonka (2--KETCHUP status) -- 1 roll

Nuh uh!!?

Are you locking status at least so Panic can't inundate us with 4 posts to get a fourth roll?

Sheesh. After all the times I've driven to the boonies at 8 am for you, two water bottles in hand. People who dash off a quick blog post get all the love. *sniffs*

Nonny Nu said...

LIAR!

(I would never have agreed to an 8am hike.)

sluggy said...

Yeah, I think we did meet at 8 once. But I have to head out at 8 to meet you at 9!

Nonny Nu said...

Okay, you convinced me. You get a bonus roll!

sluggy said...

Thanks but that is the equivalent of someone who blogged one time from the comfort of their own home. I was witness to the first hike that inspired this blog! I told you about blogspot! I encouraged your blogging! Then met you, let's see... *opens planner to 4/15/07 forward* ... NINE TIMES!!

One lousy roll!

Nonny Nu said...

Snakeye, please cancel that bonus order for sluggy. Thanks. Sorry for the mix up.

sluggy said...

NN, please cancel our two upcoming hikes... oh and I think I still have the receipt for your bday present somewhere...

Nonny Nu said...

Flattery will get you nowhere.

sluggy said...

That's cool. We're good. It's a wash.

What about sluggy's two salt-less California rolls?

Snakeye said...

salt-less? what is the point? ...

2, 2

Nonny Nu said...

salt-less? what is the point? ...
The point: death' ("death complement").

OMG! With these adjustments, Cl. Panic and sluggy are separated by only half of a point!

sluggy said...

OMG! With these adjustments, Cl. Panic and sluggy are separated by only half of a point!

Don't you mean:
"OMG! With these [blatant efforts by NN to underwrite panic's attempt to win], Cl. Panic and sluggy are separated by only half a point!"

You are so the supreme court circa 2000. I bet you're a republican *and* NRA member.

sluggy said...

and panic hasn't gotten his bonus question E roll yet. Please roll a (|)!!!

Nonny Nu said...

Dude, there were so many bonus points while Cl. Panic was on vacation...

Plus, we should to acknowledge participation by guest bloggers, shouldn't we?

Finally, I have always wanted Man from U.N.C.L.E. to win because he is the most non-complaining contestant.

Nonny Nu said...

And, yes, Snakeye, what's the hold up on Bonus Question E?

sluggy said...

Finally, I have always wanted Man from U.N.C.L.E. to win because he is the most non-complaining contestant.

Please, you love the attention and distractions.

But that does raise a philosophical question. Is the most worthy TWoNNC one who follows NN's edicts without question, or one who challenges authority in order to make the blog a better and fairer place?

Oh and MFU could win if you would allow some free choice in willing of points per Proposed Rule No. 8.

Nonny Nu said...

TWoNNCotY should be the person who participated the most, and not just during competition time. The competition questions are just to help those who didn't guest blog but read a lot to have a chance, too. (This is why I switched to non-searchable questions.) And, since the purpose of TWoNNCotY is to award the person who participated the most, willing of points would be counter-productive.

sluggy said...

For once I might actually agree... but expressly reserve the right to disagree.

bonus question e:

Man from U.N.C.L.E. said...

Q: Has the offer of Guest Blogger status been extended to Sluggy? If not, then I think the GBA offers an unfair advantage to those of us to whom it has been extended.

I undesrtand NN that you want to reward your faithful contributors and participants, but by asserting the GBA you are creating a bifurcated system, one that is separate and not necessarily equal for TWoNN citizenry. I, for one, wouldn't want to benefit from a "country club" atmosphere where some individuals are excluded from the benefits that others are entitled to simply because of an activity one chooses, or does not choose, to engage in. Such a system of apartheid cannot justly be supported by MFU.

sluggy said...

Q: Has the offer of Guest Blogger status been extended to Sluggy?

Unrelated to GBA, Sluggy requested guest blogger ability a couple weeks back and received access. I think NN would permit almost anyone who requests permission to post at least one guest blog (through NN if not directly), so it is possibly equal opportunity.

But I do think the GBA provides a benefit to TWoNN citizens who have something to say or are funny, unlike sluggy who has yet to think of anything to write that anyone else would care to read. *sniff*

OMG, I can't believe that Chinese question was only worth 1 point!

For once I might actually agree... but expressly reserve the right to disagree.
Dude...you're losing your touch.

Q: Has the offer of Guest Blogger status been extended to Sluggy?
The offer was extended several times in the past, dating all the way back to the time when the blog was in its infancy. Recently, however, the offer was accepted and sluggy was therefore granted access. As for having a benefit that others are not entitled to, I don't think that that is the case. I have always encouraged people to guest blog, so the benefit was there for anyone to take.

But I do think the GBA provides a benefit to TWoNN citizens who have something to say or are funny, unlike sluggy who has yet to think of anything to write that anyone else would care to read. *sniff*
How many times must I say this? WE ARE NOT PINKO-COMMIES HERE! People can post whatever they want, even if say lewd or boring things! Look at Mr. Nonny Nu--he doesn't have a problem posting, does he? People, I have experienced MANY comment-less posts (e.g., the one about the hobo), and you don't see me quieting down, do you?

So, enough. Man from U.N.C.L.E., you are going to eat the points whether you like it or not. And, sluggy, you are going to go hungry whether you like it or not. (HAHA!! That bacon better be offered to me next time...)
