Seems some people were very interested, after the debate, in whether or not one can nail jello to a wall.
I too was watching the debate and my ears lit up because of the Indeed, Virginia, You Can Nail Jello to a Wall (aka Jello Christ) posting I did in May 2007.
By the time the debate was over, I’d forgotten about the jello reference. Then when I checked my blog stats late in the night I was surprised to see a bunch of visitors. From where were they coming? Metafilter. Where were they heading? To see the Jello.
So, this is a welcome to all those people visiting my blog tonight who will never drop by to see the home page, but here’s my welcome anyway. Little did I know in May 2007, when H.o.p. and I were doing homeschool science experiments with Jello, and we conceived of Jello Christ (well, H.o.p. thought of Jello Man and I consequently came up with Jello Christ) that our project would, courtesy of Senator John McCain (kind of), find recognition (cough).
It’s a strange world.
