Aserejé, ja de je de jebe tu de jebere sebiunouva majavi an a bugui an a buididipí

In the course of daily events, I am often asked, Are bloggers journalists?

Good question. The key is to think of bloggers as rectangles and journalists as squares. (The latter shouldn't be too difficult.) Some bloggers are journalists -- professional or otherwise -- but not every blogger is necessarily a journalist.

"But wait," you say. "If I'm to follow your geometric metaphor to its logical conclusion, doesn't that mean that all journalists are bloggers?"

*pause*

Shut up, you.

Anyway, the point of this ridiculous preamble is to say that sometimes real, important, eye-opening journalism appears on blogs. And this week Optimus Crime -- one of my favourite blogs -- has done some serious investigative journalism, discovering exactly what it is that makes certain ketchups "fancy."

Viva la revolutione informatione!
