This is the Headline You Are Now Reading

Joe Bodolai Posts New Blog Post

By Joe Bodolai (c) 2011, All rights reserved

Joe Bodolai today posted a new blog entry consisting of 152 words[1] and two paragraphs beginning with this first sentence. Adding a quote in the second sentence, Bodolai said “I also added an image which greatly clarifies the meaning of the post,” deftly using the succinct quote to reference additional content as well as adding a seamless transition to the following paragraph in a regrettably long sentence which he hoped that in a few more words such as these might entertain the reader.

The second paragraph, in which you are now immersed, included a three word closing line. It directed readers to the image, sparking a potential grammatical debate over whether the words are a complete imperative sentence or a sentence fragment. Prior to typing the three words, Bodolai added perhaps another interrogatory sentence fragment to amplify the density of lack of meaning in the posting. The three words?  “See image below.”

The image of the yellow and black caution sign and message referencing danger added gravitas to the posting

[1] The word count does not include the headline, subhead, byline and copyright, photo caption, and this footnote.

    It must be **** funny, Joe, and, as soon as I recuperate from my (end of summer) Labor Day diet of 2 CFL games & Blue Jays victory over Red Sox with some 3-4 buddies, approx. 6-7 “10 paper” hash spliffs, a couple of 2-4’s of our best 5% beer, and 3-4 Delissio (not delivery!) pizzas……..with those Buffalo Wings “sur le side”, I’ll attempt to send you something a little funnier!!! PS: 2 **** paragraphs, eh?

    The wit and substance of your post is quite remarkable.

    There is absolutely no doubt that this is a comment approving of the above article. Three more words.
