You Win, Ted Leonsis. For Now.

By Artistry

Who is right?  Who is wrong?  Funny?  Not funny?  There were a lot of questions and no real answers in Ted Leonsis's Saturday blog post, but one thing is eminently clear.  The headline, "Thin-Skinned - Fat-Skinned," looks very much like a direct reference to this week's little back-and-forth between the billionaire pro sports team owner and GTOG.  Which begs another question.  How many Ted Leonsis blog posts can we get out of this?

I posed this question today to my lovely wife, who is 39 weeks pregnant.  Needless to say, she's emotional right now.  How emotional?  Imagine for a moment that one of the remaining suitors on the Bachelorette took Ashley to the fantasy suite and - in the throes of passion - called her "Emily," toss that emotion in a blender with Chantal O, and top it off with a dash of the righteous anger every woman in America felt when Brad dumped two women at the same time during the season 11 finale of the Bachelor, and that's Mrs. Artistry.  So maybe I should have anticipated this.

"He's a person, too," she chided.  "I like Ted Leonsis.  I think he's smart.  He likes bloggers.  You should be happy about that."

I am not about to argue with her.  After all, we are people, too.



  1. I can't believe I didn't notice it all along. Wasn't there something strange about that blog post on Ted's Take?

    I'd say so.

    Maybe Ted Leonsis is Ron Cook.

    You decide.

  2. Could be.

    Haven't heard from Cook in a while.

    Finkle is Einhorn.
