Is It Wrong To Google One's Self?
Only if you're not a raving narcissist. Anyway, I was Googling "James Waterton", and I discovered that A QUOTE PUBLISHED IN A MAJOR U.S. NEWSPAPER HAS BEEN ERRONEOUSLY ATTRIBUTED TO MY GOOD SELF! Check this out:
James Waterton wrote on the Australian blog timblair.net, “Many from my neck of the woods have been saying for years that Irwin was living on borrowed time ... Rays are extremely dangerous. People seem to be amazed that hes been killed by one. I’m not (although I thought a croc or snake would get him first). There is a good reason why Ive ALWAYS cut my line when I jag a ray.”I most certainly did not write that - click here to find out who did. I've never so much as caught a fish, let alone "jag[ged] a ray". I also hasten to point out that such elementary punctuation omissions would not emanate from this keyboard, Mister Jules Crittenden! In fact, it doesn't look like they came from Murph, either; his prose is word perfect. Why is Crittenden dumbing me down? Aren't I base enough as it is? Evil little bastard.
Yes, Googling yourself can yield vexing results. For example, I only today discovered that this prize twat had a pop at me on his silly blog some time ago, and where was I to defend myself? The shame... right, I'm going out to get ridiculously drunk.
Update: Look-ee here. I whinged (like a leftist, let me tell you) and won a correction to call my own. Oh, Jules. You're not really an evil little bastard. On the contrary, I love you.
