Testing the RSS Feed

The RSS feed and I are locked in epic battle. EPIC. So this entry is mostly to test it. 

Here, have a joke — a BAD joke: 

A pirate walks into a bar with a ship's wheel sticking out of his trousers. The bartender says, 'Pardon me, sir, but do you know that you have a ship's wheel sticking out of your trousers?'

The pirate replies, 'ARRRRRRRGH! It's DRIVIN' me NUTS!' 

Update! There was a miscellaneous character in the feed, and it *should* be all better, but it'll need a few hours to work all the kinks out of itself.

I apologize for the errors, as the feed really really really REALLY wanted you to see things multiple times. Over and over. Sorry about that. 


General Bitching...

    The battle raged after this post too. Seven entries in my reader came after this one.

    I’ve been getting the same for Dear Author lately, too. This morning I was like, “How could they have TEN NEW POSTS since yesterday?!”

    BTW, I like that you kept the pic of the gals at the top:)

    Here’s another bad (and I mean BAD) joke in case you need it:

    Two men walk into a bar.

    You’d think the second one would have ducked.

    Here’s hoping you prevail in the Bitchery v. RSS Feed FIGHT TO THE END 2011!

    Ok – worst joke ever courtesy of a 10 year old boy:  “What do you call cheese that doesn’t belong to you?  Nacho cheese.”  Hilarity ensues.  Throw that bad boy at the RSS Feed and see what happens.

    On the upside, I totally have the Smart Bitches Glossary memorized now. :)

    Two little boys are girding their loins to swear in front of their mother for the first time. “You say hell and I’ll say ass.”

    So they go downstairs, where Mom asks the oldest what he wants for breakfast.

    “Ah hell, gimme Cheerios.”

    WHACK. Kid goes flying and Mom turns to his brother. “Okay, what do YOU want for breakfast?”

    “I don’t know, but you can bet your ass it ain’t gonna be Cheerios.

    Miss B2U, I feel like an idiot. I had to repeat that outloud several times before it finally sunk in;)!

    Oh geez, THANK YOU SO MUCH. That was driving me quite insane but I wasn’t sure if it was just affecting me or if it was the actual feed that had problems.

    Why do melons have big weddings? Because they cantaloupe.

    If my bad joke doesn’t win the award for terrible joke, I will have to be very sad.

    Well, the RSS thing has been driving me nuts, but I absolutely love that joke.  And the cantaloupe one…

    I once tried to tell that exact pirate joke but kept screwing up the punchline by saying “balls” instead of “nuts.” Turns out, mangling the hell out of a bad joke is pretty damn amusing.

    Love the new look!

    Well, I didn’t get any double posts, but the RSS feed seems to be stuck on this post. Nothing later shows up.

    Same thing here, feed hasn’t updated since this post :(

    Ditto here, no updates via RSS since this post.  I’m glad the re-posting has stopped, but not at the price of no new posts at all!

    Thank you, your feed lets me subscribe. I am so happy, I’ve missed you!!

    I’m with the previous peeps—no RSS posts since this post. The livejournal RSS feed just says parsing error.

    SB Sarah says:

    I think I’ve figured out the problem – and it’s crapful. Everyone may have to update their feed, as Feedburner seems to be broken for some and not being fixed. I’m going to figure out the best option and post an entry about it.

    I’m sorry everyone!

    This is the feed URL you should use, and please let me know if this does not work:


    I am so so so so so so so so so sorry.
