Introducing Mrs. WordPress

Time for a little weekend diversion….

Anyone who has started a WordPress blog will probably be familiar with Mr WordPress. He’s the guy who makes your first comment by default so that you know what a comment is.

Very considerate of him really.

His comment looks like this:


Today I discovered Mr WordPress has a secret….

He has a wife – Mrs. WordPress – and she’s started a blog. Not only that, but he has a child -Junior WordPress (pictured below the fold).

Her blog is an attempt to find Mr WordPress who walked out on them. Someone has too much time on their hands – and a great sense of humor.

    Someone should do something about the ‘Hello Dolly’ plugin too .. always felt it was like a Ghost in the Machine .. kinda creepy.

    I have a different problem!
    Someone made a fake blog using a perfect copy of my profile, including photo, and use it to leave dirty msgs in my friends blogs.
    I have no idea why they are doing it and Blogger didn’t do anything to delete this fake blog!
