Esoteric * Diatribe under fire

When I awoke yesterday morning I'd received an email that the waffles Google bomb had been mentioned on a major radio station in Va. I sent a quick email to the show hosts to confirm whether it had been mentioned and to ask for a transcript / audio (if they had it) so I could post it on my site. I haven't heard back from them, but I received an email this morning saying the show hosts were poking fun at the formality of my email. I won't link to the station until I can get a confirmation from the source or until someone can send me some audio so that I may confirm the mention. Regardless, it explains the increase in referrals from Google on a search of 'esoteric diatribe'

Apparently this station boasts one of the top audiences in the morning in for its broadcast area, so it is likely that more than a few people have now heard about the waffles campaign. I'm guessing that this person learned about Esoteric * Diatribe from the radio show. His/Her email is here. The site attempts to explain the meaning of esoteric, *, and diatribe. The essay is well written and rather humorous. It also suggests Google bombing this site with the text link to a. n. i. m. a. l. s. o. d. o. m. y. (I don't want that term to show up on my site). And at least one site has joined in.

I found it rather ironic that the second site wrote
Are you offended by Google-bombs? Do you take umbrage with people trying to arrest the democratic process that is PageRank?

Want to do something about it?

Join the ****** ****** Googlebomb Campaign! It's so simple to use, no wonder it's number 1!
. You are offended by Google bombs so you respond by joining an offensive Google bomb? Oh well, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, I guess.

I really do wish them the best of luck. Every link to me boosts my page rank on other searches (like John Waffles Kerry) so let the bombs fall. Needless to say, I won't be looking up that query to see if they were successful.

There are two posts I have been meaning to get to for a long time, but alas, I am too busy to get to them now. Next up is my take on this story, and a mention of Bush over Kerry's clever MEGA GOOGLE BOMB
