Don’t mess with EneMan

As you may remember, our intrepid blog mascot has been traveling though history since January, going from Mount Everest, to Canada, to inventing paper currency. He even found time to wish fellow SB’er PZ a happy birthday. Fans probably wonder where he’d end up next. I realize that this is a few days late, but that was intentional, so that I had an excuse to post the April Fools Day EneMan.

So where will he appear next?

Here’s where:

EneMan 200604

Don’t mess with EneMan. He wields a nasty sword and isn’t afraid to use it. I bet you didn’t know that underneath that cheery exterior lurks the heart of a warrior. And he’s ready to defend reason, rational thought, and science against any altie pushing colon cleanses.

Of course, given that it’s clear that he didn’t actually go back in time for this (note the buses parked in front of the castle, something you generally didn’t see back in the day when such structures were used as fortresses, rather than tourist attractions), I have to wonder if Lord Runolfr hasn’t recruited him to join the Society for Creative Anachronism.

In any case, now that I’ve seen this, I’m going to be a bit more careful in the future not to piss my mascot off.

As always, a list of the Caped Colon Crusader’s appearances since the very beginning:

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
