Alms For The Poor….and Bloggers.*…..*One in the same. And, A Giant One Eyed Squid.

In my case……donations.

Once again it’s Sunday. And, as usual, I take a moment to pause, and go to the bathroom, then decide what subject today’s blog will be about. Because it IS a Sunday and I try not to get too bent outta shape over things, especially politics, and that huge blue squid eyeball they found on a beach in Miami this past week. So I decided once again to write my grovelling donation post blog. Which will make anyone reading today’s blog click off and immediately go to other sites about giant squid eyeballs or porno.

Fine. I can live with that. Which is most likely what I would do too if some cheapo grovelling blog writer kept asking for donations to some stupid blog. Unless it was a really good porno site that was asking for donations.

Anyhow, for those of you who hung in and decided to finish reading today’s blog, which is number 912 and slowly approaching the 1,000 mark over a three-year period and has only received one stinkin’ donation from a guy who appreciates creative effort, thanks for continuing to read the rest of this.

First of all, take a look at some of the countries that read the MisfitWisdom blog: (below)

(Mexico was still taking their siestas)

Kinda impressive if ya ask me. Yet do ya think anyone from any of those countries kicks in a peso, ruble, rupee, or buck? NO!  Very disheartening considering total blog views for this year top the 85,000 mark. Just think if everyone one of those 85,000 viewers kicked in one measly buck. I’d be waaaay overbucked. And very contented.

(Powerball winners feel free to kick in a few bucks.  Just sayin’)

So, you ask, why do I bother to write this stuff if no one gives a rats ass. Other than readers who have nothing better to do other than read this stupid stuff. I’ll tell ya why. Because I’m  just as stupid writing this stuff. Most likely due to a childhood injury when I was dropped on my head and never fully recovered……as you can tell by the stuff that I write.

Yes, I know. Everyone’s scrunching the ol buck these days. Economy sucks. Jobs are in the pits. Gas is up over $4.00 a gallon. And restaurants keep hiding their “Splenda” packets behind the counter so ya can’t even rip those off anymore. Bastards.

I borrowed all of these little kids to help me with my whining today.

Now don’t get me wrong folks. I absolutely love to write. But, that said, which I just did, everyone likes to be either compensated or rewarded for creative work. Considering each and every day, 365 days a year I manage to publish this daily blog, that alone should be worth a buck or two.

There are times I’ve considered just ending this at the 1,000 blog mark and say to myself, “Why waste my time doing this when I can be wasting my time wasting my time doing other stuff to just waste my time.” Except I can’t really find anything else to waste my time doing. Other than wasting my time visiting porno sites, which really don’t turn me on because there are no senior porno sites. I keep writing AARP Magazine about that but they just ignore me.

I think they have an aversion to showing naked seniors posing in their scooters with walkers, canes and oxygen tanks. However, if they thought about this logically, they could probably make a few bucks getting the “Scooter Store” people to run an ad at the same time.

Maybe I’m going about this in the wrong way. Perhaps I should be writing a daily blog about pets, or food, or helpful hints on how to grow marijuana or something. Current event humor, which I attempt writing about every day just doesn’t seem to motivate you folks into making a donation. Hmmmm……maybe I need to stand in front of a supermarket next to those Salvation Army people with a tin cup holding up a sign that says, “Will write for donations.”  Or, alongside a road somewhere next to those people who hold up signs saying, “Will work for food.”

Another blogger on the skids.

Yes, tomorrow I’ll be back to once again writing my usual stuff hoping that this blog encouraged some of you to dip into your moth infested wallets and make a donation. It might do the trick, but, if not, I gave it the ol MisfitWisdom grovelling shot.

I also want to thank the 85,000 people from all over the world who take the time to read this daily blog. If anything, even without donations, it does give me some sort of satisfaction that I’ve made someone smile through my daily humor.

As far as that giant eyeball that I mentioned at the beginning of this blog. It’s an eyeball apparently from a giant squid that washed up on Pompano Beach. Nothing to get all bent outta shape about. Unless you happen to be taking a dip at Pompano Beach and come across a giant one-eyed squid who wants your eyeglasses.

Just imagine the pair of eyeglasses this squid would need.

Thanks again for visiting the MisfitWisdom blog. All 85,000 of you.

(DONATE) The MisfitWisdom PayPal donate tin cup link is posted below. If it is not highlighted, (blue) as in the giant squids eyeball, simply copy and paste the link into your browser to get to the PayPal site.
