Do I Have Any Minions Yet?

I’m getting pretty close to 4000 hits for this blog so far since I started right at the end of July and I’m starting to wonder, do I have any minions yet?  You know what I’m talking about.  Blind followers who will go out and do strange things based on my commands, or at least what they perceive as my commands.

It’s probably too early for this, but I think it’d be fun.  I’d like me some minions.  Groupies at least.

Let’s try an experiment.  If I have minions, I want them to sneak into the Lincoln Memorial late at night and fill the place with assorted pinatas.  Make sure they’re arranged so that they’re all looking up at Lincoln, like they’re hanging on his every word.  Then, wait for further instructions.

There.  That should be a good test.  Now, if in addition to his nickname as “The Great Emancipator,” Lincoln also becomes known in the popular media as “King of the Pinatas,” then I have minions.  If not, then I just need to keep working at this a bit longer until my sinister schemes come to fruition.

P.S.- I think Lincoln would have liked to be known as “King of the Pinatas.”
