Earlier today, Nate released the following statement: "I recognize that there will be some who will not understand the timing of this offer. The other day, I received a desperate communique from a hostage inside the PJM Compound. Mrs. PJM, had sent an urgent plea to refrain from anything that might make the already tense situation further unstable. While negotiating with Super Villains is never my first choice, the safety and wellbeing of innocent bystanders must supersede the eternal quest for justice. At the sake of great personal peril, I must make every attempt to extend the olive branch - even to nemeses."
Therefore I am forthwith proposing the following set of generous terms, uti possidetis. The agreement to the same shall signal an immediate cessation of a state of hostility between belligerent parties and their allied members.
I. Immediately forgo any expeditions to the polar regions using any of the following untested means of transport:
a. wind-powered sledges
c. sleds pulled by peafowl
II. Agree that both Antartica and the North Polar Region remain terra nullius.
III. Consider beginning any future Mystery Person Contests at an hour of the morning considerate to those in the Pacific Time Zone.
IV. Explain just what an astrocrabpuff is and promise not to use it for nefarious purposes.
V. Blog followers acquired during the recent unpleasantness be allowed to remain followers of respective blogs.
VI. If both parties happen to find themselves in a future duel with Boston Cream Pies, both parties agree to aim for Roger at the last minute.
VII. Donate any admission proceeds from above mentioned duel to purchase indoor plumbing or new dentures for Charity Grimes.
VIII. Never again attempt to erase Nate Maas through blog polling.
IX. Swear by the Amersfoortse Kei that any future disputes be resolved without resorting to super villainy.
As I assume the most contentious issue, of who gets to wear the hat, may be the deal breaker, we can leave that one unresolved for now.
