The Bayblab joins Scienceblogs TM

The bayblab is pleased to announce that after some lengthy negotiations we have agreed to be amalgamated with ScienceBlogs. This was not an easy decision. We had some concerns that we wouldn't be able to retain our freedom to write tongue-in-cheek posts about how stem cells don't exist, penises and fart jokes, or poke fun at PZ Myers to drive traffic. However Seed media has informed us that according to our traffic statistics we could earn up to $1000 a year, and we feel that the amount of beer this will buy us should be sufficient to cover the pain. In the deal we negotiated we will have to blog only about things that other science bloggers are currently discussing and allowed to give only slightly divergent opinions on such things as "framing". As part of the deal the bayblab bloggers will have to reveal their identity and will be audited weekly by the blogging ethics committee lead by Greg Laden. At least one member of scienceblog welcomed the news, Physioprof commented that: "I hope these wackadoodle douchesquirting blogger douchehounds continue to douchewrite more dumbfuck antics about douchegrads in science".

Nice April's Fool, ehehehe! "Ethics committee" - I liked that one!

Ben said...

Dammit.

the real cmf said...

you had me going...Greg Laden as part of the ethics comittee? He is the only one there with a clearly defined sense that ehtics in blogoland are necessary part and parcel to the blogosparic movement to encapsulate the ideals of " wackadoodle douchesquirting blogger douchehounds [who will] continue to douchewrite more dumbfuck antics about douchegrads in science" into crystallized, sanitized statements of truth, and pure inoffensive ethos, censored for your reading pleasure...oh, wait, that's PZ and MarkHyena-list's job.....
