Funky RSS, as in smells like cheese you left in the fridge too long

Sam Ruby is Swinging both ways with his RSS, meaning one feed is funky and one is unfunky.

This iCite blog RSS, on the other hand, is always funky (Da Funkidator test for each flavor: rss 0.92, rss 1.0, rss 2.0).

Since this iCite net development blog uses the default (and mostly valid) RSS templates from blojsom, I bet all blojsom feeds are funky.

If this makes absolutely no sense to you other than there obviously being more of a connection between blojsom users and James Brown, then between blojsom users and Pat Boone, then, um, er, well . . .

You can find out more through: There is No Cat's Da Funkidator (explained more in Funky, Funky!) and this Google search on "funky" at

Interesting. All my RSS feeds validate according to the Mark Pilgrim/Sam Ruby validator and the Userland validator. And my templates are the straight shizzle right out 'da bizzox ... beotch :)

But damn yo, my rss 0.92 feed is not funky, rss 1.0 is funky, and rss 2.0 is funky.
