The following is a snippet from a new short story that Greg Knauss is writing entitled "Bees!!!: Linking Behavior on the World Wide Web" (excerpted with permission from the author, links and italics mine):
"Hello, America! I'm Greg Knauss--"
[Wild applause, much throwing of panties.]
"--and welcome to another episode of 'Make Dave Link'! Our contestants
today are Jason Kottke and whoever he made a drunken wager with. Hello,
"And hello Jason's unsavory drinking companion!"
"You all know the rules. You name the minimum number of Dave Winer bugaboos
that you think you can get him to link to you with. If he links, you win
the round. If he doesn't, your opponent gets the point. Everybody ready?
Let's play... 'Make Dave Link'!
"You first, Jason!"
"I can make Dave link with four references."
"Unsavory drinking companion?"
"I said 'Fuck off.'"
"Your number of references, UDC?"
"Eh. Three. And fuck off."
"I can make Dave link with two references!"
"OK! Jason: Make... Dave... Link!"
[And he did.]
