The Blurt Blog 2012 Press ConferencePosted: March 30, 2012
Good day everyone and welcome to the Second Annual Blurt Press Conference. (pause for applause)
Omawarisan will be here shortly to take your questions. Before he arrives, I’d like to take care of a few housekeeping issues.
- Feel free to ask questions about any topic. In this case, please take any topic to mean not questions of religion or politics. Oma’s positions on these matters are simple: on religion – “we all choose our beliefs and we aren’t wrong” and on politics – “it isn’t our job to convince one another which politician is better, it is theirs. As long as we’re yelling at one another, no one is yelling at them and we lose.”
- Do not feel constrained to ask about topics you believe he may know about.
- Please ask follow-up questions if you have them.
- The press conference will run until Monday morning.

I’m always on the lookout for art for my series of art critiques. If you see bad art, snap a picture and send it over!
And the first question is…
