    Wombat, you ask me to limit my emails and I did so.  But I had additional links I had to let you know of.  I had more than nine in the first email I sent you.  I had about thirty links this week.  The game is rigged.  I will never get the FMJRA award.  

    I was striving for Michael Phelps Olympic FMJRA glory.  And Olympic judging corruption did me in.  

    It breaks my heart.

    Since I am at blogger I need to email my links (unlike the WP folks).  Wombat tells me not to email each one individually and I comply and wait till the last day to email the balance.  And then Wombat disqualifies my links for emailing.   It is not like a threw a badminton game.  So my chance at Olympic FMJRA glory are dashed and destroyed.  Nine links?  I had over 25 this week (I think I was up to 30 but it was unclear when the closing was on posting).  Truly heart breaking.

    Careful, Wombat! I’m sensing a disturbance in the Force. One that is associated somehow with…evil!

    My moment is over.  I just have to live with the loss of glory.  Wombat is the umpire and why he does what he does is not for me to question.  The highest court has spoken.

     Don’t give up so easily! I’m thinking a cage match between a wombat and an evil blogger lady could do wonders for traffic! Just sayin’…

    I would gladly do whatever it takes to raise traffic for TOM.  There has to be a rule on that.  

    But FMJRA is over.  It is like arguing Obamacare to the Supreme Court.

     “like arguing Obamacare to the Supreme Court” Just so long as you don’t go all “Rule Five” over Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Buzzi, er,  Bader Ginsburg on us!

     The rules are what they are. Everyone else seems to be able to follow them and just send me one e-mail containing all their links. Am I supposed to bend the rules for cows and not for other bloggers? I thought I was being generous in allowing her two e-mails. Clearly my gesture of kindness was mistaken  for weakness, and I shall not make this error in the future.

    The first time I got “the rule” was this Wednesday.  I waited till the end of the week and then I sent in my email for my subsequent posts after that.  Even before that email, I was well over nine links.    

    I get it.  I am not worthy of the FMJRA.  I do not begrudge those who do get it, they are eminently worthy for a host of reasons.  They are the favorites.  I am not.  It is sort of like Tabitha Hale dissing RSM, well I am dissed for being a cow.  

    This is not the first time.  But it is okay.  Like RSM lives with his shame, I live with mine.  No hard feelings, Wombat is a stern judge who rules like Kennesaw Mountain Landis did over even those Chicago White Sox who did not throw the series.

    That would be a crime against nature.  Although I did post “Lana” this week as an alternative Rule 5 for Democrats.  A crime against nature, to be sure, but for Democrats that is the new normal.
