PROTEST AT SPN OFFICES: Bingo Bolger-Baggins
I just sat down with yesterday's Sockpuppets and, you know, I'm fed up! I mean, it's not yesterday in particular, it's just that I noticed that no matter what I do, no matter how dangerous, it's rarely ever mentioned. And yet sometimes the most trivial things done by other characters find their way into headlines! And this isn't new--so I'm not pointing a finger at any particular reporter! I do suspect there may be some favouritism going on in the Sockpuppets Newsroom. And it's not as if I haven't made my donations either, really!
Granted, most of the time I merely have very long conversations over tea about friends, love-life, and worries. But I've done important things
that are never mentioned! Like when I went to Mordor a month ago to discuss with Sauron his business investments--alright that's not exactly what I planned, but it caused quite a stir! Not a peep from SPN! Granted they weren't reporting about anything right around then, but coincidence? I think not!
When Elanor and I plotted Revolution for the Shire, was that reported? No! When so many of my friends took off for parts unknown and I lost my sweet Ham after a whirlwind romance, was that reported? No! Then I got lost in the Old Forest, hobbit-napped by Smaug, deposited in Lindon, and then was embroiled in a Greek Tragedy for Hobbits and Elves, caged by the Valar, and wandered the forests of Dol Amroth before getting home. Newsworthy you'd think? No! Again, nothing was being reported then, but I don't think that was just coincidence, do you?
When May Underhill the hobbit ranger came to my smial to tell me about other dimensions--news-worthy? You'd think! Alright, how about this? A week ago, I flew alone to Mordor and faced down both Melkor and Sauron to save Chomsky, but alas, failed to save Faramir. What more does a hobbit have to do to get some recognition around here?
And just recently, perhaps it wasn't very important in the schemes of the larger world, but I rode from Hobbiton to the Havens in the middle of the night to bring Elanor back home.
Now these are just things mostly about me, but the other day a great many of us attended a delightful picnic--but not a word about it! Did we have to kill or shag each other to get the paper's attention? OK, scratch that question.
But I was wondering if others felt that the paper pays no heed to you no matter what you do? If you do, then come join me right now!
I'm going down to Sock Puppet News Corporate Headquarters! Bring picket signs! Here's some ideas you can use on your signs:
FAVOURITISM AT SPN MUST END!
EQUAL COVERAGE FOR EQUAL PUPPETS!
EVERYONE IS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO MAKE THE HEADLINES!
HEY HEY! HO HO! SPN FAVOURITISM HAS GOT TO GO!
So if you're fed up too, join me now. And if no one else comes, I'm doing it anyway! I'm going to chain myself to the editors' desk until I get an agreement from the editorial staff that this policy will change. ::click::
((OOC: This is just play. I know the time folks put in at SPN to make all those links for us to help maintain the MESPT community and that not everything every character does can possibly be covered. Carry on! (-; ))
