I will make you as famous as Neil Patrick Harris

Sure it sounds to good to be true, but it is in fact true...and I'll get to that soon.
This post was originally going to be an open letter but I decided to push that back a week to offer one lucky person fame beyond their wildest dreams.

You see I saw this thing called Twitchange...it's basically a tweet auction to help the folks in Haiti. You can bid on a retweet or a mention from a bunch of celebs, like Zach Levy, Jessica Alba, Demi Moore and more (hah). What's cool about it is the money is going to a good cause. And I guess if you want some exposure to a bunch of folks on twitter it's a good way to get that.

So I wondered how I could get in on this action.

Then I recall something I said to Jamie, The Baby Guy, whom I met last week. I said that I was going to make my first million from my fake retweets. 

What's a fake retweet you ask? I'd say go to Urban Dictionary to find out but they rejected it. Seriously, they rejected it...have you seen that thing? It's filled with crap.

The now wildly famous Fake Retweet was born on a Friday when I was on the bus and was kind of bored. I thought I'd throw some star power behind some #FFs (Follow Fridays) of me. The first few I called out that they were fake, but that went away because, well that was just too boring.

Here are some of my faves, one is from Neil Patrick Harris and he's pretty hot right now.







So I thought while you all could go to TwitChange...and maybe you should because it is a good cause...those tweets are probably out of your budget. Unless you want a mention from Nichelle Nichols which is currently going for $10.50.

Instead I'm offer you the opportunity to have me fake retweet you. Plus instead of having the money go to someone you don't know it will go to me. Or maybe I'll feel generous and buy something for Miloh (or Staci), yeah I realize that puts me in the same circle as Gandhi or Mother Theresa...I can handle it.

You can head to ebay to bid...and I know you want to. What I'll do is throw out not one, not two but three...yes three...fake retweets. They will all be different but will look something like this:
Oh, you're so sweet RT @yourtwitter name: I think People Magazine should name @smonkyou as sexiest man of the year
And if the bid goes over $25 (is there anyway it won't? I mean really I think we're looking at more like $2500) I'll throw in a smonk you T-shirt. The shirts were seen at the Blogher conference.

So don't delay...bid now. Please, don't everyone go to ebay at once...I don't want to shut it down.

Oh, and if you're still reading and not bored, you can head to Urban Dictionary and submit Fake Retweet...I'm sure their denial was just a mistake.

  1. Seriously you crack me up. Miloh is going to be one awesome kid. I am loving the fake retweets. Do you think that is why you lost two followers? You became famous and they could not handle it! Bid will be over $25. Will be watching.

    Take care!

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
