We done got memed, and it’s bad luck to ignore a meme, so here goes.

Eight Random Things about Korrektiv

1. It has been rumored that Korrektiv is the creation of a teenage girl (about to turn twenty, though) living in Moses Lake, WA.

2. One of the (fictitious?) Korrektiv team members once censored another for using the phrase, “unenthusiastic blow jobs,” which prompted the censored member (so to speak) to create a blog called Korrektiv Supplemental, for the sole purpose of providing a forum for talking about the lack of enthusiasm in the world.

3. Korrektiv Supplemental became infected with pornographic comment-spam and so was eventually shut down and hermetically sealed off with plywood and duct tape.

4. Korrektiv is the Danish word for the German word Korrektiv.

5. Korrektiv was conceived in sin.

6. Two of the current (fictitious?) Korrektiv team members began reading and commenting on Korrektiv while doing time in the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla and working in the prison library. Upon they’re release from prison, and after passing a lie detector test and a rigorous psychological screening process, they were invited to become full-fledged team members, whereupon the two founding members of Korrektiv were reassigned by the Copenhagen office to highly secretive work in the Congo.

7. One of the (fictitious?) Korrektiv team members was staying at the Mt. Angel Abbey Guest House in 1997. When he left, he short-sheeted the bed as a practical joke for the next guest (whomever that might be). Another (fictitious?) Korrektiv team member was the next guest to occupy that room and was the recipient of the practical joke. Neither team member was known to the other until nearly ten years later when the second team member (who at the time was not yet a Korrektiv team member but operated another blog) happened upon Korrektiv, began commenting on it, and later was invited (after lie detector tests, etc.) to become a full-fledged member, whereupon the strange synchronicity of this short-sheeting incident (among other strange synchronicities) came to light.

8. The most recent (fictitious?) addition to the Korrektiv team was once a much-beloved citizen of the blogosphere, whom Korrektiv kidnapped and sent to Copenhagen for intense commando training and re-education. He’s still a fledgling, but we have high hopes for him.

    Number 7 is well place, methinks. Mind boggling!

  3. F.X. Martin says

    I have never given an unenthusiastic blowjob. I will try to live up to your good hopes.

  4. The Ironic Catholic says

    Interesting (fictitious?) facts.

  5. uhm, yeah, I am wondering if I have to go back to confession for just reading these this close to Christmas.

    Since I am taking them as the work of fiction that they are, I will say no to that.

    Love you guys.
