Silly Web Content

I've spent considerable time today wrestling with some really old content on our site. With a website as huge as Sonlight.com--with upwards of 3,000 pages or more--we sometimes don't revisit things for a while. And that is why certain "gems" remain on the site for extended periods of time. Like this one:

"The publisher designed their product to encompass the material so that Level 1 is a beginner level, Level 2 is intermediate, and so on."

Really?! A sequential numbering system? How original! I simply must have this product!

I ran into that sentence after reading "this is the only program we've tried—and we've tried a lot of them..." so I was more than a little slaphappy.

Tears.

Literally.

Rolling down my cheers. Hilarity the likes of which is seldom seen.


And if you'd like a few more funnies, as well as some really interesting articles, check out the latest posts added to my aptly named Other Posts of Note.

And now for your:

Word of the Day
Obsequiousness: abject or cringing submissiveness

Brought to you by Global Prayer Digest


That's all I have time for at the moment. May your day be filled with mirth, joy, love and learning.

:-) Thanks for the chuckle. And, I probably wouldn't recognize your word of the day if I didn't listen to Adventures in Odyssey. Eugene would say he was an "obsequious journeyman . . ." yada, yada, yada. I never really paid attention to what it meant though.

Glad you both enjoyed it <smile>.

I love the "only one we've tried" quote.

The quote actually works in its entirety, but it cracked me up and was needlessly confusing <smile>.
