The most important birthday of the year… and a new member of the Posse!May 27, 2011
Tuesday was Maru’s birthday. He turned 4 years old.
I forget when Bernie the Half-Cyborg Cat’s birthday is, but he is not Maru so it doesn’t matter. Maru is joy. Look at him!
So Renal Failure is older than Maru (we will celebrate out 6th blog birthday in December). That makes us feel old here at the Failure, like we’re Internet old heads. Then again, after six months everything becomes old on the Internet. But since Renal Failure is nowhere near as popular as Maru, we’re new to pretty much everyone else on the Internet, save for our Renal Regulars and Trent Lott Posse.
Speaking of the Renal Failure Trent Lott Posse, we haven’t inducted a new member in 11 months. It’s about time to freshen up the ranks with someone worthy enough to roll with T-Lott (aka Young Treezy). Someone representing the Dirty South, straight out of Hotlanta, it’s Thomas.
I’m not sure how long Thomas has been hanging with the Failure, but he did come up with the best obscure reference of 2010 in this post about the universal appeal of April O’Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That and his regular commenting earned him a spot amongst such gangstas like Daisyfae, Alex L., Sledpress, Kyknoord, Red Raider, and Rassles.
So raise a goblet of Courvoisier for Maru’s birthday and Thomas’ membership in the T-Lott Posse. This will be a Memorial Day Weekend to remember!
