About the author.

Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

First of all, whoa.


Did you guys love all these guest posts as much as I did? I’ve half a mind to stop blogging myself and just get 20-30 people to commit to one guest post per month and just have them write for me.

Who’s with me!!!!!??

The side benefit to this master scheme is that, as you probably have noticed yourself, these bloggers end up writing BETTER material when they guest post than the stuff they normally put on their own blogs.

What? Isn’t this a reverse roast?

As LeSombre would say, Quel Frommage.

Let’s recap a little.

First, Dave2 from Blogography teed things off by actually making a BAD WAYNKEY!  He cleverly embedded it into a intolerance-based liberally biased anti-establishment fascist piece of propaganda disguised as a comic, and for that, I’m eternally grateful.  He even published an extended Behind The Scenes edition, only this time, with less New Kids On The Block shrines.

Then BlondeBlogger came by and deposited into the bank of whall a series of 10 questions and the readers were to pick which 5 were true.  The winner, Ren, supposedly gets “have a date with Whall at the LOLCat headquarters.”  I’ll pre-emptively accept his withdrawal from the contest.  I got another true statement: BB is hot.  Just look!

After BB came Hilly, aka snackiepoo.  She was able to conform to the strict Puritan values my blog espouses (yeah, right [bleepitybleeper!]) and bring on the Weird Science for us all.  She also pointed out all of our differences.  Thanx for that (WTF Hilly, you ride donkeys?!?!?).  But she did point out our commonalities- I do love the 80’s, I do have a great heart, and I LOVE TWEETING AND BLOGGING.

Then it got all serious-like.  Miss Britt infected my blog with Obamfluenza H1N1.  I had to go into quarantine and everything!  Usually, any given type of flu has an incubation period anywhere from 72 hours to 7 days, but evidently if one drinks the kool-aid fast enough, he or she can be overcome within minutes, afflicted with such symptoms as incredulous mysterious adulation towards public figures, radical socialist views, and a shrieking voice when debating (or so I’ve heard).  After watching 15+ minutes of Funny Obama, even *I* started experiencing my own symptoms of tolerance, acceptance and open-mindedness.  Fortunately for me I was able to purchase a new copy of Atlas Shrugged while on vacation, which is a common antidote for apathy-inducing liberalism.  WHEW!

And then?  YES!  YESSSSSSSS!  OMG YES!  No, I’m not having an episode. I’m still reeling from the awesome YES-laden guest post from Mr Shiny.  Here’s what I don’t get about Shiny – he’s undoubtedly one of the top 3 funniest, wittiest, smartest bloggers I’ve ever had the pleasure to read.  He’s absolutely brilliant.  I mean, there are bloggers out there I enjoy to read, but Shiny’s posts make me laugh out loud.  But he hardly gets any comments!  Even his guest post for me had the fewest comments out of all the guest posters.  I just don’t understand that.  It’s almost as if his posts are so good people find themselves unworthy to comment.   His LOLyes pictures were awesome, especially for huge YES fans such as myself.   And Shiny? I’d love to hear the Leave It track… I’m thinking of doing one too so maybe we can team up on that idea sometime.

Ren from Renagerie.com followed up the Amazing Mr Shiny with a clever new take on LOLcats, my blog and made something unique – WHALL-anti-cats.  He took photos he had of me over our 10yr friendship and captioned them with actual blog post titles from my blog.  And WOW.  He did nineteen (19) lolcaptionblogtitlethingies!  I think my favorite in the series is “an’ you’ll be poppin, lickin and breakin in no time…”  And yes, it’s all about the dorkiness of Wayne.

*content sigh*.  Then Poppy came to my blog and made it aww bettaw.  It wuz so pwehshush!  She whalljacked my blog and made an eccentric vlog with one of the sexiest coolest overdub narration voices you’ll ever hear.  And I think some rap.  And something about “Dirty Wayne” which is almost as nice sounding as I expect “Naughty Wayne” would sound like.  Thank you Poppy.  Thank you for the YES tie-in, the voiceover and the awesomeness you gave my blog.  And something about a lollipop in it or something.

What guest post whallstravaganza would be complete without a fatwha?  Faiqa from Native Born, aka Supreme Magistrate of All Things Wise, Prudent and Being Generally Better Than Everyone Else Without Even Trying of the NBLA, unleashed the NBLA’s demands on the world when they actually DID whalljack me with normal and just atypically terroristic and extremist demands.  I’m so glad they did. You will pay for your insolence.  I have seen the error of my ways.  Chuck Norris is gonna go all up in your face and roundhouse kick every turban off every extremist muslim head.  I’ve corrected my behavior and even built a time machine, went back in time, and put in TWO votes for Barack Obama just to make sure.  With just one roundhouse kick. I’m so glad my eyes have been opened. Blindfolded.  Please forgive me for my past.  And then LOLcaption it.  Sincerely, Marmontiansese Nbyuti Barack Hussein Obama (tongue click) W. Hall whall.  PS: May I express my fondness for your aesthetic qualities? My lord, you’re hot.

The final instwhallment of the guest post gala was performed by Mr Avitable.  From Avitable.com.  His last name is Avitable.  He doesn’t like it pronounced Avitable, he prefers it Avitable.  It can be a littable difficult to fittable the right syllables befittable such an iminitable Avitable, but it’ll make the fiddle knittable, said the quittable riddle in the middle.  I think I need to make this whole thing DITLable.  Now does everyone know how to pronounce Avitable?  Good. Now to his blog post.  He copied Faiqa.  End of story.  NEXT!

All in all, I think it was a quality showing.  I don’t know about you, but I’m already looking forward to my next vacation!

PS: Who was your favorite? I’ve been looking to start up some drama around here to drive up traffic, so which one did you hate and which on pwned the others?

PS#2: The “Part V” in the title is a little secret.  Can anyone guess what it’s in reference to?

And lo, the people did comment thus:


  1. Dave2 says:

    I just voted for myself. I totally deserve some props for not going all Obama on your blog. Though heaven only knows that your readers are crying out for some Obama… as made abundantly clear by Miss Britt’s guest post.

    Hmmm… now that I think about it, I probably should have voted for Britt. Oh well! Too late!!

    Dave2´s last blog post..Heartache

    • whall says:

      Dave2 – I made the poll such that you could vote for multiple people. And I think you made the right choice as to guest post content, topic and end result. It was awesome, and I see it’s given you much blog fodder with the I’m A PC / I’m a Mac idea. Cool! I love effigy.

  2. martymankins says:

    I love how the voting has started out with 100,000 people voting so far.

    Part V – a Star Trek reference or are you planning on going on vacation #5 later in the year?

    Nice wrap up of the guest posters. They were all good.

    Now give us a DITL soon.

  3. Yay! 100,000 people loved mine! LOL

    “I’ve been looking to start up some drama around here to drive up traffic…” Ahahahaha! My vote went to Poppy. 🙂

    Oh and you said I was hot. I would just like to point that out in case anyone missed it. *grin*

    BlondeBlogger´s last blog post..CF Rocks DC

    • whall says:

      BlondeBlogger – what’s drama without some scandal? OF COURSE YOU’RE HOT. Hmm, so is Poppy though. And Snackiepoo. Oooh and Miss Britt. FAIQA OMG. So maybe to create the appropriate amount of drama, I should do a poll of which of these female guest posters is the hottest. And we’d need a runway/catwalk too.

  4. shiny says:

    I didn’t get many comments for two reasons: (1) I believe I was the only one of your guest posters who didn’t announce on his own blog that he was guest posting on yours. This was simple, sheer laziness on my part; I hadn’t blogged at all for the better part of a week when I posted content on yours. I even missed a “List on the 3s.” Perhaps a more consistent blogger would have more consistent commenters.
    And (2) — I am TERRIBLE at replying to my commenters. And I feel awful about it. Really I do. But my sentiments doesn’t help those who likely feel unacknowledged.

    I _will_ record “Leave It” one of these days. It may take a while, but I shall.

    And thank you for only pointing out one and not both of my serious errors in my LOLYes series. 🙂

    I loved Hilly’s but they were all so wonderful! Oh wait, sorry….I was being other people who were voting for other people making the other people they did not vote for feel “less than”.

  9. Sybil Law says:

    Part V – The Simpson’s?!
    I really don’t think I could pick a favorite. I loved them all!
    However, I’d like to point out that had I done a post, it would’ve been called Whally World and featured a talking moose and John Candy.

    Sybil Law´s last blog post..Birthday!

  10. Ren says:

    Only you could take what seemed likely to be a lazy summary of the guest posts and turn it into an enjoyable read of its own. Not as good as the guests posts themselves, but that just makes the summary that much better — it doesn’t out-shine what it summarizes. Nice.

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be my quirky self again, Lollipop.
