"The time has come, the walrus said, "to [cease] talk[ing] of many things." At least, this blog must now go the way of the passenger pigeon where the woodbine twineth.

In order to seize on certain linguistico-artisanical possibilities that have been stubbornly lying fallow within the keyboard, Br'er Slangwhanger has to shut up this particular shop. Accordingly, as the sun sets in the west we wish the fine natives of Lower and Upper Bloggovia a fond farewell and set sail for greener fields and pastures new.

Occasional public snark will still emanate as Br'er Slangwhanger finds it impossible not to comment at Wonkette's fine online slangatorium and marching society. And an old and dear friend of his will show up from time to time at the stalwart print-and-online midwestern leftist thought-emporium called The Progressive Populist.

With a year's blogging behind him, the Slangwhanger-in-Chief would like to thank those who have accompanied him across the frozen ASCII tundra, through the fetid jungles of HTML, and beneath the purple majesties of the "series of tubes" that are the internets. Without you, none of this would have been necessary.

The number of mixed metaphors herein may strike purists among you as excessive. The humble, heartfelt reply is, "They were deliberate." No point composing a farewell message if you can't play with the form. The opportunities are so few they had best be taken full advantage of.

One final plea of advocacy: help draft Al Gore. More here!

And may the deity at hand drop great gobs of good things on all who have sailed herein.

Ah has spoken.
