everyone knows denial = defensive
Omar regularly and vehemently denies any interest whatsoever in gardening. It's no big deal I'm sure; a few such accusations were made in a few weblog posts by a few people scattered around the globe. Yet when I see promo pictures like this, I worry.Omar - I've always believed you. And I'm sure the dozens of comments (attributed to me) scattered around the (admittedly global) internet saying otherwise are simply evil fabrications. Please ignore them.

Aside: No one should be surprised to learn Cate and Glo started the whole "Omar is a girly gardener" thread.

Remind me never to get on Omar's bad side.

That first spammer at the top is hilarious! I think you should definetly link that anonymous spammer. The second spammer has to be the longest winded spammer I've seen!

Who wants to call me a girly gardener now, HUH? WHO?!

Was that first comment spam actually providing information on what comment is? That's fantastic!

Lou - yes, the first one is a keeper (though not a clicker). And while I too was impressed by the second one's verbosity, I feared readers might get hand cramps trying to scroll past it. They'd miss Omar's comment! Can't have that. So it's gone.
Omar - even with the handgun "Going Gardener" doesn't have quite the panache of say, "Going Postal." Still, I hope I've made it clear I respect you whether you're armed or not.

Jam, my apologies for my unplanned absence. The new post you were waiting for should be coming soon.

Sweet. Credit where credit is due.

Omar is a girly gardener!

Honestly. There are easier ways change the "gardening is girly" stereotype besides making a guns-n-explosions movie about gardening.

"Ah damn, I've got weeds! Fetch the twelve gauge!"

"Couldn't you just use weed-killer?"

"I said fetch the twelve gauge, woman!"

I am so sorry! I just realized that my link for Syar is the same as your's. I will need to think of something different for mine.

Yeah, I'm already against Omar on cellphones and my loyalty to him has been questioned as I've hinted that I might want to read what Mrs Phillips has to say for a change, so I'll just not comment on this. for safety's sake. as in, my safety. can you imagine omar wielding a watering can. talk about danger. :-)

jedith : I'm just happy to be linked. you could use my new blog name. just a suggestion.

I am obviously missing out on something great here.

I know nothing of Omar nor his horticultural (if his girly gardening can be considered horticulture) tendancies.

How ignorant of me.

Jen - no ignorance on your part. *I* could have provided more backstory but opted for terse, sorry. I hoped to minimize the "inside joke" aspect with the link to the post & comments where the girly gardening taunt started (on Cate's weblog).
