What is truly hilarious about this, however, is that someone reproduced the joke in the actual “wood” article, essentially verbatim. Of course it was marked as vandalism and posts were temporarily disabled, but it lead to a highly ironic and amusing discussion in the Talk:Wood section about what exactly the point of the joke was supposed to be.

Oh this was you! Funny, I'm so used to you not posting (now that I've discovered your amazing blog) that when I saw this in my feed reader, I assumed it was a guy named Brendt who is also in my feed reader and posts a lot.
I guess Brendt is your nemesis.
Anyway, this was very funny, and as a worker of wood, I appreciated the humor. I even laughed. Silently.
