Triple-dog dare

A defence of the honour of Avril Lavigne lead to an unfortunate triple-dog dare. Bruce Gottfred wins major respect by observing not only the letter but the spirit of the challenge. Paul Jané's rejoinder was a case of special pleading (having been sent to that Swiss boarding school all the cool kids from Genoa City end up at). Funkalicious upholds the honour of American bloggers while Taylor & Company offers a spirited riposte (and this link round-up, thanks!) and comment from The Tiger in Winter holds the promise of more blogger high school photos to come.

Will the veil mystery of the Meatriarch be lifted if only a little? Knowing the gravity of a triple-dog dare, my own pics arive in town in the next couple days...

And then... Abraca-Pocus! and Raging Kraut rise to the challenge!

And then... Another blogger takes up the call at Scaper's Weblog!

And then... Canadian Headhunter, already has a high school pic up near the bottom of this Bruce Springsteen fan page. Or is that a Seneca College snap? Meantime, the Meatriarch wants a Bloggie!

Ghost, you've met me so you know that was a long time ago even if it wasn't in high school. I think I was at York back then, not Seneca. But I don't have any place to post a high school photo so I used what I had at hand. Not fair, I know. My grade 13 photo is more typical.
