The Pioneer Woman has nothing on me.

Remember when I said I was going all Pioneer Woman on your asses?

See, I nominated Badger for the Babble We've Never Heard of Your Favorite Mommy Bloggers list, and I've decided that if The Pioneer Woman can whore out her blog for Haiti, then so can I.

Except the Pioneer woman gets millions of hits a day, so she only offered to donate 10 cents a comment.

I'm not as popular as the Pioneer Woman (discerning readers will call this "stating the obvious.") Ordinarily, the thought of this causes me to sob convulsively, but this time, there's a silver lining. Which is that I can afford to donate more then a lousy dime per reader.

Also, unlike the Pioneer Woman, I don't want you to leave a comment on my blog. (Well, actually, I do. I like comments.)

But what I'm really doing is trying to get you to click through to the Babble site and vote for Badger Meets World. So I've promised to donate a dollar per vote.

So far Badger is in 12th place with 407 votes. Some blog called "Peaceful Parenting" is at 1,596 votes. Now, I don't know about you, but that sounds lame as hell. I'm not even going to click through and check it out. I prefer my blogs to be funny, and somehow, I'm not getting the idea that "Peaceful Parenting" is going to deliver much in the way of yucks.

Let's go, people! I'm not saying we can kick Peaceful Parenting's ass, but we can at least bully it a little bit.

Remember, Haiti needs the money, and Badger needs the votes. Go give Peaceful Parenting a wedgie. And tell 'em Poppy sent you.


  1. She's number 12, so your ballot-box stuffing is really working!

  2. I have voted every day (almost). And yes, Peaceful Parenting sounds like some corporate crap on PC parenting. ICK. And funny, I've heard of a lot of the other bloggers and recall NOT liking them much, so I don't get this at all.

  3. I love Vodka Mom, Mrs. Flinger, and The Bloggess, but Badger is the person who introduced me to blogging. She's why I'm here in the first place. And talk about underappreciated! Those blogs have a ton of fans/followers, but badg is still relatively unknown. And this must not stand.


    There. I said it. (Yes, I've been watching Buffy non-stop for months, so what?)

  4. Does that make you my bitch? I certainly hope so!

  5. 485. Peaceful Parenting can suck it.

  6. Hey!
    I voted - and I'VE BEEN VOTING!

  7. I've been voting, too. I don't know how I found Badger, but I am so glad I did! And then I found you, so win/win! (Wow, that sounds incredibly mushy.) Oh, well, it's for charity, right?

  8. Yes, Ginny. (I almost said "Yes, Virginia; there is a Badger Clause." But I thought I'd give you a break.

    Yes, it's for charity, and Badger is now Number 8!

    I've decided she has to get to number 6, because that would give me a cool The Prisoner moment. I'd call her up and say "You are Number 6." And then she'd be all, "Who is Number 1?"

    Keep voting, people.


Gentle Readers:
