Why I Am a Charter Member of the Mutual Admiration Society

After some gentle ribbing (with a sharp elbow), my good friend and the inspiration for this vanity website, Lane McFadden has acknowledged Ribstone Pippin's existence. Lane's site,, has been regularly churning out insightful and pointed commentary on current events in addition to combing the internet to bring you the oddest and quirkiest sites for far longer than I have even been aware of this medium. For that, and for his recent post, much thanks.
