Interview with Illogicology

I decided to interview the author of one of the competing blogs this week; Illogicology. Below is an excerpt from that interview.

When he was notified that he was being interviewed for the King of the Blogs, his initial reaction spoke volumes, "Ooh an interview. How spectacularly glamorous."

1. Ok, first of all what is with the name of your site? Did you intend on spelling it that way? And what does it mean?

Site names can be phenomenally difficult to come up with. I was originally going to go for Illogicoly Logicoly. This was to be all paradoxical and weird so lots of people would look and say "That's Clever because it makes sense and it dosn't at the same time." However the only drawback was it sounded terrible. Abreviated to Illogicology I have created a nice new word that before only existed in the hearts of those with poor grammar. As for a meaning it is very similar to the Latin "Illius Ogicolius" which translates to "Owen's Blog"

2. Do you think your announcement on your blog that you "can't be bothered" with Trackbacks or the bribery of the judges will hurt your chances in the contest?

Impossible. I feel that my chances in this contest have been unaltered. 1/3 reduced due to lack of intention and effort = 0/3. I feel it's hard to reduce it anymore. Hell if I win the crown I'll consider rewarding the judges later.

3. You have listed among your reasons for why you should win is that "I don't post pictures of cats". Do you have something personal against cats? Were you attacked by a cat as a child?

Ah the domestic Cat. Parent of all that is evil. Were you aware Judas was half cat? No Neither was I but I'm sure it's true. However visit half of the blogs in the universe and you will find these false idols glorified on every page. The cats rule the earth and now they seek to rule the internet. I consider myself a freedom fighter.

So there you have it, our first "freedom fighter" Pretender. Good luck to you.

I asked my husband, who studied Latin at school, and he said he doubted your translation to 'Owen's Blog'.

Were you being naughty, or is he just an old grump who doesn't remember as much as he thinks he does?

I assure you, I speak in all sincerity.
"Illius Ogicolius" is a well know term in ancient rome.
