Alton Brown Thinks I’m A Loserpants… And That’s OK

Yesterday, Kevin Haggerty wrote about how Dude Love Weirds Him Out. (This from the proprietor of “The I Love Man” site). Thus in a spirit of phileo, I decided to launch a campaign of “love” directed at him.

About three of you showed up. Thanks for that.

In the interests of escalating this mock war, I tweeted the following at Alton Brown this morning:


He being a celebrity chef, man of the world, and all around bon vivant, I didn’t really expect a reply. But reply he did:


… And, truly, Alton is right: I really have no reach to speak of. But in the grand scheme of things what does it matter? I’ve connected with some of you on Twitter, others here on the blog, and still others via Facebook. I’m thankful for every single person who does read my random ramblings.


It’s true, I may never have more than a niche blog. But that’s ok, because:


And that, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, is the truth: Jesus knows who I am, loves me anyway–and He loves you, too. Conan (the barbarian, not the talk show host) was wrong when he said what mattered most in life was “to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.” It’s to have one’s name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Is yours?

PS: Still, at the end of the day, how many of you can say you got pwned by Alton Brown on Twitter? How cool is that? 😉

  • Where’d the comments go?

    • What do you mean? I see them just fine. Only one caught in Disqus filter was one from Ricky A.

      • Looks like you put this post up twice. Check the main page.

        • Aw, dang! Then I really am a loserpants.

  • Very funny -- you guys are insane 🙂

    • Insanity, I’m told, is merely a state of mind. 😉

  • I posted: “Did you just Jesus Juke Alton Brown?” You replied: “Maybe :)” Both comments are gone. At least, I don’t see them.

    • Weird. I didn’t moderate anything.

    • Kevin, mystery solved: technical difficulties caused a double post. You commented on the other one..

  • I can honestly say that I have no clue who Alton Brown is.

  • Super cool!

  • I have only the faintest clue who Alton Brown is, but I know who you are, friend. I also know a thing or two about having a niche blog-- and it doesn’t have to mean you don’t have reach. It just means you reach certain people.

    I’d say more, but I can’t give away my whole Killer Tribes speech. Just know that I’m raising a virtual fist bump to ya. 😉

    • Awesome, Tamara! Thanks for the fist bump!

      All I can do is let my little light shine, and trust God for the outcome. I used to get so wrapped up in the stats, and why I wasn’t growing, but that hiatus I took (among other things) gave some much needed perspective.

      Thanks, again!

  • Dude, this was an AWESOME post!!!

    • Thank-you right kindly, Tor!

  • Alton is rather sassy.

    And Chad… you do have reach. That’s why we’re here 😉

    • Ain’t he, though? ‘S’alright--I’m having a good time.

      And thanks much for being here!
