Don’t mind us, we’re just taking over a Gooner blog.

It’s Short Fuse Takeover Day!

It’s awfully quiet around here, don’t you think? Well, that’s because most of us are over at The Short Fuse trolling the Gooners.

It’s time for The Short Fuse Takeover 2: Elneny Boogaloo! Way back last fall, we won a charity competition with our friends at The Short Fuse, raising a total of $6500. As a reward we get to take over their blog and post all their content for them all day today. (Although, truth be told, we raised a lot of money for charity, so everyone wins.)

If you want a reminder of what it was like last year, check out the archives.

Carty Free readers are of course welcome to join in on the banter, but there are a few rules that should be followed.

  1. This is still their site, so be respectful and civil. Don’t be nasty. Don’t be mean. They will still be moderating their site with their rules, and any bans or warnings issued over there will be mirrored over here.
  2. In a similar vein, this is all supposed to be good fun. Let’s treat it that way. And remember, some day they could take us over. (Not likely, but, y’know. Stranger things.)

There’s no animosity between the staffs of CFC and TSF. In fact, I think they’re looking forward to it almost as much as we are! (Well, maybe not THAT much.) But they’re a good group of people over there. Let’s all be respectful while we test-drive their new Masarati and try not to wrap it around a tree.

If important Tottenham Hotspur news happens here, we’ll still cover it. You’re free to discuss things as you usually do in the Hoddle and elsewhere. And if something important breaks over there, they’ll write about it and we’ll be very clear what’s parody and what isn’t.

YOU made this happen with your generous donations to Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice in North London back in August. This is YOUR day. We just get to help bring it about.
