What's With The Post Titles?, or Gratuitous Post That Is (Nearly) Content Free

[All of the textbook strategies for building an audience for a blog say that one should post daily. So, with that in mind here is another post* with almost no content.]

The editors and I would like to briefly open the curtain, and offer a peek behind the scenes at the inner workings of this little blog.  The reason: we occasionally get mail from the readers, and almost two of the regular readers of DI have asked, "Why are all the post titles so long?"  This is why:
Look! Is moose and squirrel.
The naming convention for the titles to all of our posts is an homage to the best, most subversive cartoon ever to air on television.  Even though it originally aired almost two decades before we were unleashed onto the world, it was a regular part of our Saturday morning regimen.  If you are still unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, you must seek it out.  It will make you smile, and realize the genius of Jay Ward and his band of miscreants has influenced just about every good animated show since.  There would be no Simpsons, Ren & Stimpy, Spongebob, or South Park with out those great pioneers of animated satire.

*The real reason for this post was to commemorate racking up 2000 page views.  Hooray for us. - ed
