Hello, again. As you know, we at the Pake Shlake band pride ourselves on laziness. And, as we were priding ourselves on this, we realized that we had two deadly sins on our hands. And that made us mad! And jealous! Well, then we had four deadly sins, and we decided to get greedy and go for five!
Anyway, our deadly sin count is not the point of this post. Of course not. That would be ridiculous. The point of the post was to let you, our faithful fans, know that the Pake Shlake Band is going to be taking a break.
Yes, the Pake Shlake Band has become the Take Break Band. That's right. It's a TBB Original Game, Breaktakers. And we win.
Allow us to explain. When we started Shlake.com, we wanted a site where we could express ourselves in a crazy and funny way. Sometimes you would laugh, sometimes you would be confused, but every post should make you think, "Wow, those are some crazy guys!" and you would either laugh or furrow your brow.
But, instead of two crazy and funny brothers running a crazy and funny site, we turned into two poor stand-up comedians delivering one liners that even we didn't think were funny. Not exactly a recipe for success.
So, we are taking a break and finding our roots. (And you know how much we love sweet potatoes).
What does this mean for you? Well, not much. As you know, we are over two years old now, which in blog years is like 65, meaning we are ready to retire to Florida and start eating dinners at four. (Pass the sweet potatoes!)
Anyway, we will not be posting as frequently as we did in our youth, but feel free to check back from time to time since we probably will throw some stuff up. And, since we won't be posting every day, the stuff we throw up should be funnier. Or at least more true to ourselves, i.e. ridiculous.
We thank all of you who were regular posters - Lorenzo, Luca, Tony, Sam, DJ, Mamma Meg, Big A - and those less frequent posters, who are either not worthy of naming or actually just spammers that got through our filters.
Don't think of this as a "Goodbye," think of it as a "See you later." Much later. Think of it as a "See you in hell!" No, think of it as a "Sayonara." Or an "Adios." Or a "Bon voyage." Or, who knows what.
Anyway, thanks for reading this and never be afraid to shlake it up. Grac.
