The 2005 Frank Turk Memorial Link-Fest

Frank needs some loving at his blog. Please link to him.

Frank's a good listener, and he'll "be there for you," to steal a Seinfeld reference.

Frank on Bono is found here.

For a snapshot of the deeper side of Frank, peruse this link. The first sentence may very well change your life!

To see Frank's more creative, "feminine" side, try this link.

Frank's graphical capacities are also stunning. Try this. Its fecund profoundity escapes me, but it must be important.

Most people don't know that Frank has a PhD in Sociological Arithmetic from New St Andrews college, home of the intellectuals who will save we benighted fundies from ourselves. See an excerpt of his doctoral dissertation here, and note again his graphical prowess.

Yes, let's show Frank the love; link to him, give him a big hug, send him a cookie bouquet with smiley-face mug, or, as the bumper sticker on Volvos and Volkswagen vans says: practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty on/for Frank.

[A few more relatively serious threads (especially when compared to this flight of whimsy) on charity will be forthcoming. Frank just needed a pick-me-up, and if one can't use his own blog to pull somebody else out of context and make jokes at the expense of an ally, well, dear reader, just what can he do?!?!]

Dude: if that's the pick-me-up, I don't want you kicking me when I'm down.

Somehow I think the point of my last post has been either miscommunicated or misunderstood: the question is not "does anyone read my blog?" I know people are reading because my counter tells me the volume of hits. The question is, really, "Where are these people coming from?"

If I was linked on 50 or 60 sites, then getting 200 hits a day would be self-explanatory. But I'm linked at some of the sites I link to and not really anywhere else. I'm really just curious as to what would happen if my blog was actually linked to about 50 other sites.

And for the record, the diagram about the Gospel is for the pomos reading the blog. People with college degrees who can read words don't need pictures to tell them the story. In fact, pictures often confuse those with advanced degrees.

Given all the "graphic content," it sounds like Frank is running an X-rated blog. No wonder he is getting so many hits!

For the readers of this blog, I'd like to note that these are actually my allies in the war against evil and sin for the sake of the Gospel. You should see what those who don't like me so much say about me publicly.

Let me publicly say that I'm Frank fan! Let me also say that you can pretty much size up a man by his enemies. Frank must be doing something right to have the enemies he has! If only I could trade up to have such a distinguished roster of enemies!

Let's start a chant:

Go Frank Go!

Go Frank Go!

Go Frank Go!

Ditto to Steve's comments.

"distinguished roster of enemies". That is the funniest thing I have read all year.

My roster of "enemies" is like the 60's TV Batman rogue's gallery -- Tim Enloe as the Riddler (Frank Gorshin, not John Astin), Dave Armstrong as the Penguin ('wack 'wack 'wack), Kevin Johnson as Egghead, Dr. Paul Owen as the Joker ...

... sadly, there is no Cat Woman. I even held open auditions, but I got no applicants. Like Adam West and Bill Shatner, all the chicks dig me and cannot resist my classic machismo. (cf. PP's comments in my blog about alien girlfriends with gogo boots)

This is totally off-topic, but it must be said: Julie Newmar was smoking hot as the 60's Catwoman.

If you need a Catwoman, Frank, I would suggest keeping some Catwoman Attractor Spray in your utility belt from now on!

Emma Peel was my first crush.

Just as there are high-end dating services, there ought to be some agency which we could contact to upgrade our enemies' list. First thing we need to do is to submit a profile of a worthy adversary.

Just as Tom Wolfe had the category of the trophy wife, as we move up in the blogosphere there should be the equivalent of the trophy foe.

Mrs. Peel was hot, and Eartha Kitt was the best catwoman ever.

"trophy foe".

I wish I had 5 minutes to respond to that, but I have Hallie Berry on hold.

Judging from your enemy list, Steve, you must have put out a "Looking for Foe" ad that read something like: Preening narcissist wanted. Must constantly talk about himself or what other people are saying about him. Double standards on decorum preferred, but not required. Crazy epistemologies highly desired. Call 555-xxxx for a good time!

I'm re-reading Steve's "worthy foe"/"Trophy foe" comment, and I'm thinking about walking into the holodeck and saying, "Computer, create an opponent capable of defeating Steve Hays' theological arguments."

What scares me is that we'd actually get a Dr. Moriarity rather than a catwoman.

I'd settle for either Dr. Crusher or Counselor Troi!

If Troi walked in front of me in those tight figure-revealing outfits, I would be neither pedantic, nor Protestant. Think of King David on the rooftop looking over the neighbor's fence! [How did anybody get anything done on the bridge?]

But, both Frank and Steve are sadly in error here, for Barbara Feldon, aka "Agent 99", in her full "mod" glory, is the #1 all-time PP Dream Babe. The patristics fully support this, and the Reformation upheld this point as well. It is indisputable, infallible, and undeniable. It is a proposition that should be beamed into every mind.

Barbara Feldon? Oh you sad, pathetic man.

Barbara Feldon? You could have at least picked Barbara Eden in the Genie suit ... Barbara Feldon had that annoying nasal voice -- and for the record, she's not even mentioned in Origen or Irenaeus, so there's hardly unanimous consent.

However, to underscore Steve's orthodox point, Counsellor Troi looked great in her guest appearances in the last season of Voyager. That has nothing to do with Mrs. Peel, but Barbara Feldon?

"Missed it ... by THIS much ..."
