For at least 3 seasons, MASH was one of the funniest sitcoms ever. One of their best episodes came in the first season, entitled 'Tuttle'. The episode centered on an imaginary officer that Hawkeye created. As the episode went on, the rest of the 4077th went from wondering why they had never met this Captain Tuttle, to by the end of the episode most of the camp had convinced themselves that they had not only met Captain Tuttle, but that he was the best officer in the camp!
I wonder what would happen if Tuttle came to the blogosphere?
For example, what if a 'Johnathan Tuttle' created a new blog, and 'Tuttle' would occasionally post about some conference (that no one's heard of, natch) that he will be speaking at. And then a few days later, 'Tuttle' could recap what he had said at the conference. Then to make it really believable, have 'Tuttle' sometimes post that he had attended a REAL conference where a buncha A-Listers spoke at. He could post about 'the great speeches by Doc and Scoble!'.
Am I the only one that thinks that a buncha bloggers would suddenly start treating 'Tuttle' like an A-Lister, if they thought he was speaking at all these conferences like an A-Lister? ;) Besides, wouldn't this 'experiment' be a lot funnier than some Smurfette she-male crap?
