  4. YES. I laughed out loud imagining our dear Authoress using her skills in karate and ventriloquism to save the world.

  5. YES, because no one should get a comment that says "horrible" as the only explanation for their no, and I'm throwing in sympathy. Space cows is funny, and while this wasn't as blog-related as I wanted, and I was gonna say no, I love your gutsy tone.

  6. YES. Because this is both tightly written and utterly ridiculous -- and it made me laugh.

    Thank you, Petre. I think a lot of people don't get the rules- to use Authoress or the blog in a FAKE logline in whatever genre they want, following REAL logline rules. It's a game, so what's wrong with having some fun?

    Although in reality, the idea is not that fictional, as the dairy industry is trying to get approval to slip the chemical aspartame, a known neurotoxin with severe health side effects, into milk to make it sweeter to compete with junk food drinks like pop and Gatorade, but they don't want it listed in the ingredients. And if I remember correctly, the Authoress cares about health and food safety.

  9. No. That said, the commenter who left the comment that it's "horrible" (it's not) needs to keep authorly karma in mind...not to mention basic tact and kindness.

  10. Yes. It's almost as refreshing as a glass of cold milk.

  11. Yes, because karate and puppetry skills seem legit for overthrowing a bovine regime.
