In Which Your Faithful Narrator Gets Pimped by Herman Otten

I was leaving for work this afternoon. I was headed to the law library when my cell phone rang. It was Rev. Wookie, from New Jersey, a friend of mine from my "glorious time" at the, as I like to call it (for no particular reason) The Big House, in St. Louis. Its unusual for Rev. Wookie to call me, not unheard of, but a bit unusual. When he does call there is usually a good reason behind it. It more often than not has something to do with some idiocy that LCMS has done. So, when I answered the phone he said "Hey, Pnut, how's it feel be one of Herman Otten's favorite blogs?"

Naturally, I was a bit taken aback. I doubt very seriously that Herman Otten has ever read this blog and, if he has, I'm sure he probably didn't like what he read. What I assume is this: he found a blog roll of some sort of another, did some cuttin and pastin and published it in his little rag of a newspaper: the "Christian News."

Here's what House, M. Div has to say about Rev. Otten. I told my dad that I had gotten pimped by Otten's newspaper and he asked, in a somewhat concerned voice: "did he use your name?" No, just my blog name.

Now, I'm not tooting my horn because this blog was listed amongst others according to Rev. Wookie. I have to take his word for it because I haven't seen a copy of the Christian News since I left the seminary. Though, I do remember reading it when I was there because I needed something to chuckle over.

So, Lutheran bloggers, be quick! Find out if you, too, are a part of the Otten Faves. *chuckle* a dubious honor, for sure.

Well, I don't know who this Otten guy is, but I'm guessing this is an honor. Not to mention, he's probably never had his name and "pimp" in the same sentence... until now.

I wouldn't call it an honor.
