hot abercrombie hoax investigation widens

the plot thickens. after cameron "gumshoe" marlow broke the lid off the purported hot abercrombie hoax, he uncovered that "the hot abercrombie chick" at the very least, pseudonymous. and now, it looks like the hoax allegations have been pulled from google.

my theory is that "the hot abercrombie chick" is actually a clever marketing scheme concocted by none other than abercrombie & fitch. think about it. you think that abercrombie wouldn't have sent a "cease and desist" letter when they found out about the site? trademark law dictates that companies like abercrombie are obligated to fight all attempts at brand dilution ( except in cases of parody ). and who had the pull to get the allegation quickly removed from google? it makes you wonder how much advertising abercrombie does with google.

for the humorless, i suppose i should probably point out that the previous statements are completely baseless and not meant to be taken seriously, although i do think it'll be interesting to see where cameron's gumshoes take him.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
