I enjoy sparring in comment sections. One of my regular reads, The Return of Scipio, recently decided to take a break from posting. That produced this exchange:
You are not allowed to take time off or suffer blogger’s block without paying the fine.
Mail your check to Steve Burri or make arrangements for direct deposit.
Hey, I’ve contacted the Postmaster General and your check is NOT in the mail.
Right you are. I forgot about the fine. I have contacted my agent, one Dr. Hamid Abdullah of Nigeria. I have asked him to remit you a check in the sum of £ 5,000,000. He will be arranging this payment as soon as he receives from you certain information about your bank.
