BREAKING: Bloggers Will No Longer Be Rich, Powerful Gazillionaires

WASHINGTON - MARCH 26: Sheets of one hundred d...

You may not realize the jet-set, luxury-laden lifestyle bloggers enjoy. By simply posting our random thoughts on a public website a couple of times a week, we get PERKS...diamond jewelry, trips around the world, sex with really hot Brazilian models, Maseratis and cocaine by the truckload.

Or at least, the FTC thinks we do. So they're going to regulate bloggers, to put a stop to this grotesque gravy train of perks, once and for all. No more "computers or trips to Disneyland" without full disclosure. Thank God someone spoke out about all of the enormous wealth and power bloggers have accrued...here I thought we were all socially inept nerds with odd hobbies. Turns out we're all millionaires.

Wait, you get sex with really hot Brazillian models? How come I didn't get that? I would trade a truckload of cocaine for that.

I think I got a Brazilian dollar... no, wait: that was a Canadian penny (I get them confused)!

Actually, I've been doing some reading on this and there are people in the blogosphere who do get lots of free stuff, i.e. the "mommy bloggers." Some of them have a large following and companies apparently send them products to review.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. But I don't see the FTC starting to clamp down on mainstream media in the same way. Fair is fair.
