Tell Huffington’s Toast I sent you:

Blogfather: I have with me tonight Ann Althouse. Mrs. Ann Althouse.

Ms. Althouse: Ms.

Blogfather: You have a new theory about the blogosphere.

Ms. Althouse: Can I just say here Glenn for one moment that I have a new theory about the blogosphere?

Blogfather: Er… exactly. (he gestures but she does not say anything) What is it?

Ms. Althouse: Where? (looks round)

Blogfather: No, no. Your new theory.

Ms. Althouse: Oh, what is my theory?

Blogfather: Yes.

Ms. Althouse: Oh what is my theory that it is. Well Glenn you may well ask me what is my theory.

Blogfather: I am asking.

Ms. Althouse: Good for you. My word yes. Well Glenn, what is it that it is - this theory of mine. Well, this is what it is - my theory that I have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine…

Blogfather: (beginning to show signs of infatuation) Yes, I know it’s yours, what is it?

Ms. Althouse: Where? Oh, what is my theory? This is it. (clears throat at some length) My theory that belongs to me is as follows. (clears throat at great length) This is how it goes. The next thing I”m going to say is my theory. Ready?

Blogfather: Yes!

Ms. Althouse: My theory by Ann Althouse. Ms. This theory goes as follows and begins now. All blogs get no traffic until Instalanched, then they get lots and lots of traffic, and then they get no traffic again. That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, and what it is too.

Blogfather: That’s it, is it?

Ms. Althouse: Spot on, Glenn.

Blogfather: Indeed.

Ms. Althouse: And it’s mine.

Blogfather: Heh.

Ms. Althouse: My pleasure, Glenn…

Blogfather: Advantage Ann…

Ms. Althouse: It’s been a lot of fun.

Blogfather: Yes, thank you very much.

Ms. Althouse: Saying what my theory is.

Blogfather: Yes, thank you.

Ms. Althouse: And whose it is.

Blogfather: Yes, thank you - that’s all - thank you…Next week…how to make better pie with your digital camera’s oven thermometer unit. Your digital camera doesn’t have one? Advantage, ME!

Ms. Althouse: I have another theory.

Blogfather: Yes.

Ms. Althouse: Called my second theory, or my theory number two…
