Mailbag: Bob’s Formula For Ending Ban

Bob: I think all these awesome Gus graphics should be put into downloadable pdf’s or something so county employees can print em out at home and tack or tape em up at work (clandestinely, of course) and bring Gus to his pre-ban knees. I also think there must be a way to maturely mediate and break this logjam, these two alpha males crouchin in their corners, snarling at each other. I’m probably not the one to suggest anything in the vein of conflict resolution, BUT! here is what I think would work:

1. Gus reverses his block decision
2. DFO sends Gus a huckleberry pie
3. They both go to one of those photo places that has the western themed prop you stand behind to look like cowboys and get their pic taken.
4. DFO posts the cowboy Dave and cowboy Gus pic and bans anymore photoshopping of Gus as long as the ban remains relinquished.
5. I get a pie for solving this!

DFO: So, if Gus drops the blog ban, I’d be stuck with this question re: future Gus photoshopping: To Gus or not to Gus? No question here. We’ll Gus.
