Jump the Snark Turns Three!

Last Friday was Jumped the Snark’s THIRD(!) birthday, and we celebrated in style, with a night out at our most favorite restaurant.

When we stirred late Saturday morning (okay, fine, early Saturday afternoon), after clearing the cobwebs from our head, and wiping the Cool Ranch Doritos crumbs off our face, we tried to remember what happened the night before.  But after the hazy memories of chicken finger baskets and teriyaki flavor bowls and mudslides and oreo brownie sundaes and Killian’s Red slowly came into focus, we thought about the last three years of this blog, and how grateful we feel that we’ve been able to provide you, the reader at home, with our dumb posts and unnecessary commentary and our eerie fixation with TGIF.  But you’ve stood by us, and we thank you (and, yes, we’re talking to one person, which is essentially our readership).

And as we typically like to do on any landmark day here at Jumped the Snark, let’s take a moment and look back at the past three years, and reveal our #post of all-time, with 8,798 views:

It’s our home page!   Yay!
Alright, fine, that’s not very exciting.  In fact, it’s devoid of any excitement of all.  But the important thing is that 8,798 times, whether by accident or by design (and, let’s be honest, mostly by accident), world-wide web surfers landed on this site,  for two seconds or for two hours.  Did they stay on long enough to read any posts?  Will anyone read this post?  Probably not?  But if we can waste someone’s time for just a few seconds, and maybe provide some genuine frustration or disappointment, well, then it’s all been worth it.
Happy Birthday, Everyone.

‘Survivor All-Stars’: The Dragon Slayer Is Vanquished

Before we get into this past week’s Tribal Council, let’s hear from Amanda (I think it’s Amanda.  Eight weeks in and I’m just now able to keep Amanda and Danielle straight.  And Candace and Courtney).

Insightful stuff there, Amanda; really eye-opening.

So Coach claims to have survived an a choose your own adventure of dangerous predicaments in exotic locations, facing down vicious natives and brutal conditions with only his cunning (and tai chi) to protect him.  Unfortunately, for Coach, here on Survivor: All-Stars he encountered the ultimate threat in the form of Russell Hantz.  And no amount of tall tales of enduring against insurmountable odds could save Coach this time.  And, really, he can boast all he wants about loyalty and cowardice, but he has no one to blame but himself.  He refused to vote for Russell two weeks ago and then decried the result when Boston Rob was eliminated.  And with his mancrush out of the picture he decided to take on the leadership role, and in doing so sent up the “varsity” team in the bowling reward challenge, because he so desperately wanted to win the bounty of a smorgasbord of (cold) pizzas.

More: Goodbye, Coach. And a new Survivor cookie???
