Wil Wheaton Squares It Up With FBLA

After a few days worth of some rather serious ribbingWil Wheaton finally wrote us:

Your posts the last few days have been absolutely hilarious. Excellent use of clown sweater today.

I’m confused, though. You want me to give you credit for what? I didn’t write the Fark headline that was linked to your site, I just bought the T-shirt.

As far as I can tell, nobody at Fark ever claimed credit for writing the headline that was on FBLA; someone just submitted it with the observation that it was “Fark-worthy”, which it totally was. The thing is, I had nothing to do with it, and I think the person you want a cyber nod in the hallway from is whoever submitted the link.

Anyway, thanks for the kind words about me. I totally don’t deserve them, and I’m sure I’m going to disappoint you and everyone in the world, eventually, but it was awfully nice.

Okay, he said we were hilarious. That’s good enough for us. All is now forgiven.

Yep. We’re that easy.
