The Dissassociate is the blog of a lawyer and humor writer that has been writing an anonymous column for the National Law Journal's website for the past 2 1/2 years. On the blog he posts a daily comic where he states that his "goal is to bring a little bit of humor back to the law - not the 'how many lawyers does it take...' type of offensive humor. I am trying to capture the humor that celebrates the funny side of working in a firm. After all, I am a lawyer and am proud to be one." He even has a recent law.com piece...
Greetings IP Funny readers. Sorry for the lax posting lately. Been buried at work. I’ll be working through a number of improvements to this blog in the coming weeks/months, so stay tuned. More content to follow too. Someone has to feed the other blogs that knock off our content.
In the meantime, if you are reading this blog’s RSS feed (unless you started reading in the last week or two), you might consider changing over to our permanent RSS feed. Just click on the following link, and if it doesn’t automatically update your RSS reader select your RSS reader from the list.
We, a bunch of IP attorneys, created IP Funny as a place where we could pile up all of the crazy, funny, sick and crude things we stumble across. It has been a lot of fun. I'm glad we've entertained you.
BUT. There are professionals in this funny IP business. People we can't compete with...crikey, they're professionals. Who am I referring to? Daniel Wright at Patently Silly. Of course, he IS a stand up comic, so it really isn't a fair fight.
So, if you stumbled on us via BoingBoing this week...check out Daniel's site too.
First, Larry Bodine posts on how Patrick Lamb is now the King of Blawgs because he has the most hits on Blawg.org. Then, Tom Mighell posts on Between Lawyers about how to really measure who is the top blawg.
What is funny is what Blawg.org actually measures. It measures clicks. Thus, if you sit there and vote for yourself over and over and over again (which you can do)...you quickly move to the top.
I'm not saying that Patrick has clicked his own blog's name 16000 times, who knows who made those clicks. What I am saying is that the "most popular" measures nothing useful.
So...if your blawg isn't on the "most popular" list...happy clicking. Or...you could pick some obscure blawg and vote for them.
We've added our third blogger. His name is .... oh wait, we are trying to keep it anonymous. Hopefully he can help pull us out of the potty humor gutter we've been stuck in lately. ;)
If you are a current IP blogger and are interested in anonymously joining us (even if you'll only make a post or two a month), let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of us have funny things we come across (or think up) that we don't dare post about on our own blogs. Consider this blog as a potential alter ego for you.
If you'd rather just send us post suggestions, that's fine too.
