I thought it was a goof: grown men pretending to be lumberjacks. (the inverse of course, is common: Lumberjacks pretending to be grown men) But even TMZ has certified it as a real thing now.
So am I concerned about getting lost in the growing pool of faux lumberjacks? Nah. I'll worry when they start blogging.
Sorry for the blogging-pause, by the way. I had my gallbladder removed on Friday and haven't been doing much of anything. I know, you're skeptical. You'd expect me to remove my own gallbladder, and be back pretending to chop down trees the next day. Well, I didn't excise my own gallbladder because the wikipedia page wasn't specific enough on some parts of the procedure. Normally I'd just go in and poke around until I found it but just this once I decided to let Obama's new, perfect, healthcare do the job.
As for why I wasn't out there pretending to chop down trees the next day: I showed up, but there were all these other pretend lumberjacks milling about; making chainsaw noises and pretending to harass the spotted owls. It looked like they had the situation well in hand so I left the field to them for a few days.
