Apparently we’re special and others want to be special but Pigfender, in his wisdom, wants them to know that they’re special in their own way. So the Pigster plans to make his point by making us even *more* special by excluding one of us. The cunning part is that the choice will be made by the gods.

It’s a win-win-win as far as I can tell. One of us gets lauded by the gods and has our name recorded in history as the chosen one. The other keeps their gold star while Pigfender gets free advertising for NIAD and implied endorsement by the gods. With all the discussion preceding the choice of the gods, and the buzz it generates, it won’t even matter whether anyone gets excluded or not. I didn’t think he had it in him, but it’s marketing genius...

At first, I believed you were the Chosen Ones. The bearers of the golden Grails of NiaD. Now, I see that the Fender of the Pig, son of Fender of the Stratocaster, son of Fender of the Glowing Coals from the Hearth has tainted you with the Jaundiced Chalice of DaiN. You are marked with the ineradicable puss-coloured symbol of the Other for all of eternity or until L&L changes its forum software again, whichever is the sooner. Such is your destiny. It is written. It is known.

(Do we have to keep this up until 26 January?)
