A Christmas Ode to the Word Press Reader

Twas the week before Christmas,
And through all WordPress house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a mouse,

Then up jumped a code wrangler,
And shouted with glee,
Let’s cause a nuisance,
And I’ll do it for free,

It’s just before Xmas,
They will all be so busy,
We can mess with the Reader,
And make them all dizzy,

So they worked hard through the day,
And they worked hard through the night,
It was so very unusual,
That it gave them a fright,

Then the bloggers complained,
And made the wranglers feel sad,
So the the bloggers said more,
And drove the wranglers quite mad,

Then up spoke a blogger,
With “that’s well deserved”,
Let’s put them in aspic,
And have them preserved.

We do need a sense of humour to cope and keep our spirits up.  Meanwhile Sam’s Song is brilliant and Sam the Eagle is my hero:-

Appalled and shocked, but we have been here before.  Making an effort does make a difference.  Imagine how bad it would be if we didn’t.

    • I try not to let them be an annoyance, it’s too wearing. I think that’s what they want.

      I’m glad if the post helps.

      Not likely to raise much protest before Xmas, but the groundwork will be useful.
