Cheers to Mr. Arlee "Lee" Bird!

Today is the Cheersfest for one of the blogosphere's favorite and hardest working fellas----king of the A to Z Challenge, the one, the only (I hope)...(wait, was that out loud?) Mistah Arlee Bird!!!

This superfun blogfest is brought to you by Mark Koopmans, Morgan ShamyDavid Powers KingStephen Tremp, and The Ninja Captain himself. Visit any and all of these bloggers for the full list of Festers. 

Please allow me to tell you a little bit about Arlee...

Why did Lee come up with the A-Z Challenge?

I believe he made it up as a colossal joke that we all fell for.

If someone dreams about being a juggler, what does it mean?

It means that he has the balls to dream big.

Is a post by Mr. Bird worth two in the bush? 

Um, I have to take a pass on this one. Way waaay too many inappropriate responses popping into my head.

Who could play Lee in a documentary? (Living or dead.) 

I think only Lee could do the job properly.

A man known only as The Juggler is most famous for tossing out internet challenges. Some say he’s mad, looney as a bird, while others hail him as a genius. I personally think mad genius is more like it. Mal, Zoe & the crew have their Browncoat brigade, but those who follow The Juggler call themselves Brown Jackets…because they're slightly more stylish. They mix in with regular folk throughout most of the year, but in April, that is when they come out by the hundreds and proudly display their letters. All twenty-six of 'em.

Enjoy the Fest, Lee!  You deserve it. I'll be putting my brown jacket back on again in 2014 for A to Z. Can't wait!!

We did all fall for the joke, but it's been fun.
Thanks for participating in CheersFest!

Fun to read Nicki! Our favorite Bird will love your responses and your brown jacket~

But the A to Z is a great joke, isn't it? LOL

Got to love Arlee!

Jennifer Lane said...

I think Arlee must be a villain to come up with an idea that creates so much work for bloggers, LOL. Cheers!

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

A joke? Now you tell me.

Oh, those inappropriate responses…too funny! Dreaming big is all the rage, or so I've heard.

Julie Flanders said...

Fun to read your answers. Congrats to Lee! :)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

A -Z, a joke that we all fell for, I hear that. I too think these questions led to thoughts of inappropriate responses, but most of us made them anyway. Ha,ha,ha.

I'm with Alex - I wanna know the inappropriate responses! All your answers were so funny, Nicki! Congrats to Lee on this awesome roast! :-)

I like the A to Z Blogman coming out with all 26 of his Letters. Now you need The Lettermen to do the backup singing.

Very nice, Nicki.

Kimberly said...

Really awesome answers. Falling for a colossal joke is a good one - but I've sure enjoyed it!

I'll be on the lookout for the Browncoat Brigade! It's great how you tied in your flash fiction with A to Z! Very clever!


Arlee Bird said...

I like your take on the Brown Jacket. We are a movement!

Thanks for playing along with the roast. I've been having a great time with it.

Oh dear... do you know how many times I've read the question and I NEVER thought of that??? *embarrassed*

Now my whole day is thrown off, LOL!

Really great, Nicki. Thanks so much for participating. This has been a hoot!

Liz Blocker said...

Can I request the inappropriate responses?? ;) It's so fun to get to know Lee this way, and read everyone's flash fiction!

Maurice Mitchell said...

Arlee could do his own juggling stunts in his biography!

Mark Koopmans said...

Ha Ha!

I *wrote* the question and I didn't even think of going there, Miss Nicki !!!

But, now you must... your fans insist :)

PS: Thanks for helping to support 50 States of Pray, too. Really appreciate it :)
