Velociraptor Defence

Heh. Check out the link below, KiS.
Have a go, you'll not beat that score!
Of course, I prepared myself by reading our excellent guides, How to Prepare for the Raptor Apocalypse and How to Defend Yourself Against a Velociraptor...

Creative Commons & Big Butts

Thanks for the reminder about our sharing policy, KiS. We do indeed welcome all, both online and offline, to share our glorious content. The Creative Commons license we share our content under has the usual fair share of legalese but the gist of it is; share, attribute, and don't explicitly sell. Any doubts just drop us a line. I have restated the attribution requirements on our Contact page, but the important thing here is to say we WANT to share. Let's see these gems of modern instructional writing passed around the world.

Big butts! Lol, just typing that makes me grin. Our latest literary marvel is a brief but functional guide to achieving a fuller figure. For me there is nothing politically incorrect about the theme; I am a fan of all the shapes and sizes we come in, and Queen got it quite right with "fat bottomed girls you make the rocking world go round..." Well, I'm rambling here, what I wanted to say is, I am SO over the moon having created a web page with big butt in the URL.

Bizarre but true

Oh, yes, we really MUST alert the media about our having so many articles--especially now that there is the possibility of some cake. The cool thing is, that they might actually care! Why?? Why would they care, our readers may ask. And the answer is because all wikiHowl articles and photos are made available through Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License. This means that any person or group, ranging from a tiny local PTA, church, or Rotary Club, to a huge news organization such as CNN, Forbes Magazine, or even the inimitable Oprah Magazine, is welcome to reprint any of our articles. All they must do is to attribute the work to us.

Our attribution requirements are easily satisfied. For internet re-publishing a direct link back to the article and prominent text stating the material came from " - The How-To Manual That YOU Can Laugh At" satisfies our attribution requirement. For offline distribution, prominent attribution to " - The How-To Manual That YOU Can laugh at" will suffice.

So now, let us get back to searching for more great articles to post in the coming weeks.........maybe we will find more on the how to make that elusive perfect balogna sandwich, or something more on very quiet potatos, or perhaps even another list of clever techniques on How to Lean Over a Bit!

100th Article?

100 Articles, KiS? Wow, I'm glad you highlighted that. This is super news, I went straight off to Tweet that, add it to our RSS feed, and even gave it a mention on our latest iGoogle Gadget update.
I like how we ended up with a descriptive name that we could play with. Because it could easily have been last weeks How to Prepare a Hamster (very unpolitically correct, but funny too), or tomorrows, How to Defeat the Great Possum King of Possum Kingdom. (What the heck is that about? Did I agree to us using it? Was I drunk?)
So, will there be cake? I think there should be cake. Chocolate cake? Maybe 100 cakes? Ooh an idea... What about a competition, KiS? The prize could be one of those cakes. Can we post cake internationally? Too many questions, I will have to lie down. Let me know what you think, KiS.

Highlighting a Highlight

Just who IS our reader from Estonia, Montenegro and South Africa, I have to ask you, Dave? That is ONE cosmopolitan person, I must say. Our other reader will be mightily impressed when he finds this out..........or the case may be. And the other thing which may blow BOTH of their minds, and perhaps yours as well, is this. With our latest offering, we have hit our ONE HUNDREDTH ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, which is by the way, about I just thought I would highlight that for you, Dave, in case you have not noticed. It is quite a highlight in our little pet project, don't you think?

I Wanna Be A Vampire

I want to say congratulations to our How to Become a Vampire article. Having just completed the end of month update of our Most Popular articles list on the front page, I am seeing this as a new entry. Becoming a vampire is obviously the thing to do this summer. While I've never personally considered joining the ranks of the undead, reading advice such as "Coffins really aren't the best sleeping places. Beds are good...", makes me think maybe it's not all about hardship. Cool.

As to who is reading this? Our site analytics prompt me to welcome our new readers from Estonia, Montenegro and South Africa to name but a few.
