It appears Fark.com is linking to the entry in which I have taped bacon to my cat. I’ve called my host provider to warn them. They seem confident that their series of tubes will be able to handle the madness. I suppose we shall see. In any event, if this site suddenly becomes difficult to access, now you know why.
Finally, the symbol with which America will unite itself: bacon taped to a cat.
Good luck! Hope you don’t have to pay for excessive bandwidth.
I get 1.5 terabytes of bandwidth a month, so I should be fine.
Duct tape would have made you a god and probably 1/2 a man via wifey
My hat is tipped
Tha’s just too cool!!!
Make’s me want to re-up my totalfark status.
Maybe when I have more time.
Someone hotlinked the picture of Bat-wielding Krissy on there, too.
Your wife and cat have achieved major internet fame.
How proud you must feel.
Geez! First Krissy, then bacon-on-cats – is there anything you can post about that won’t get the intarwebz all up in arms?
You know, if people can’t get to your farked site, how will they read your warning/explanation?

Impressive, Your Host is holding up nicely. You should send THEM a fruit basket.

Alas, we shall be deprived of TLC for an indefinite period…
No, no. I’m writing. Really.
Yeah, yeah, you’re writing, really. When you’re not distracted by your wife, Morgan (Krissy) Fairchild, WHOM you’ve seen naked…yeah, that’s the ticket!!
If the site suddenly becomes difficult to access, how are people going to be able to read your warning about the site becoming difficult to access? Well, I guess you used “becomes” instead of “became,” so it’s a possible future action you’re refering to…
I tried using html tags for style once, but people didn’t understand that my clothes were both bold and italicized that day.
Already answered upthread, Tired.
Greetings from a random Farkette. My cat wishes to send his condolences to your cat, after giving me a look that very plainly said, “Try it, and I’ll shred all your handknits and bury your computer game disks in the litterbox. I’m not kidding.”
Might wanna keep an eye out on your cat, if he’s as vindictive as mine! ;-)
It’s worse than that, John: I linked to you, too.
Man… I thought I held the time wasting crown for my conversations with toads. Taping bacon to the cat? I can’t compete… I just can’t.

Yes, that’s what I say to my wife… when I’m reading the Whatever.
…and some of us thought that the terrorists would win.
John, is this the first time you’ve been Farked?
Wow, that sounds dirty.
Hey, being linked to FARK ain’t such a bad thing, you know? I just ordered your “Old Man’s War” on Amazon. If it turns out to be as great as the reviews say it is, I’ll most likely order the next in the series. Kudos to your unintentional marketing skillzz. :)
Hey, I said it in the comments to your to-do list: tape bacon to your cat, get nothing else done that day.
But it was good for a laugh.
Great…now you’ll see *all* the genre writers taping uncooked food items to their domestic animals in hopes of free Fark-esque publicity. Betcha we’ll see Tom Clancy duct-taping raw salmon to a ferret within a week.
Does it suck to write like 5 books and the big popularity surge comes when you tape bacon to a cat?
I find it amusing, actually.
I’m confused…is taping bacon on your cat still considered cat vacuuming?
I am suprised you aren’t pimping your book(s) out on the page linked from FARK. Free publicity and all. Farkers have clicked on the above link 30705 times as of 11:00 PM CST.
The reason I’m not is because it would be kind of dickish to turn that page into a big fat ad — people clicked in to see bacon-wrapped cats, not book ads. Pissing people off is not a way to sell books. And anyway, the books are selling fine.
Dude, what about bacon wrapped books?
Good attitude, JS… and I made my comment before I saw the Bacon Cat motivational poster.
Blogroll links aint that great :P but i am not the admin… :P … Just Telling :P :D
