Obama Wins - O'Reilly Cries

Poor Billo!  Check out the sniffles - and the wavering, quavering voice - and I do believe I detect a tear hanging precariously from the corner of his eye.

Don't take it too hard, little Billy.  You know better than anyone else - the tide comes in, the tide goes out.  You just can't explain it.

BRONCOBAMA WINS THE RODEO!

R.I.P. Professor

I've been informed that the CCC's Professor (Professor02) passed away Sunday morning, April 22, 2012.

I didn't know his real name, but I talked to him on the phone a couple of times and met him once, briefly, in real life (as "The Professor").  He was a hoot and his wife seemed like a real sweetheart.  Sad day for the Chatter. He will surely be missed.

GRAVELY WOUNDED GIANT STRIKES BACK!!!!

  1. Threatens to “Out-Dick” Quasar!!!

    Thanks for taking the time to create and share that.  It was actually funny in a couple of spots.  The xtranormal format doesn't really allow for vocal nuance in the delivery of the jokes, though, does it?  No doubt there will be improvements to that in the future.

    I agree I can be a nitwit at times – no doubt about it.  And I don't mind being called a "mud-wrestling beyotch."  I do enjoy participating in a good cat fight from time to time – keeps my skills sharp. 

    Like I said, my participation in the sock op was actually very limited, but if you want to blame me for the entire stunt, I don't have a problem with that.  No matter what level, I did participate.  I can honestly tell you, though, that for my part and from what I heard from others, there was no malicious intent involved - and to my knowledge AN's name never came up.  Some who considered themselves to be a friend to you believed you would actually find it quite humorous, but, sadly, that didn't turn out to be the case.  I offer my apology here to your staff and colleagues at the law office and to Sheba el Al for any inconvenience my participation in a well-intentioned, but perhaps poorly thought out, stunt may have caused.  Mea culpa to them.

    As far as the award - if you feel compelled to strip me of something I honestly earned in retaliation for something entirely unrelated, that's your call.  It would actually be a victory of sorts for you over your old nemesis, Quasar.  You definitely will have out-dicked him with that move.

    PUNISHMENT POLL

    A lot of people seem to think the dastardly pranksters who pulled such an evil stunt on poor Goliath's shyster lawyer deserve to be punished.  What do you think would be the proper punishment for their heinous crime?  Should the pranksters receive the punishment of:

    1. The death penalty.
    2. Thirty years of hard labor in a maximum security correctional facility.
    3. Thirty days of hard labor cleaning out the coops of the diseased chickens at the Goliath compound.
    4. A severe beating about the head and shoulders with a tire iron.
    5. Being dragged into the coliseum to be viciously mauled by hungry lions and packs of wild dogs.
    6. I’m telling mom.

SOCK DRIVE!

"socksANONYMOUS is a militant group of do-gooders using social media and humor to improve the world one fun stunt at a time."




JEFFERSONVILLE - A group of anonymous organizers will be holding a sock drive to benefit the homeless. The donation will be made in the name of the Clark County Chatter, though organizers stress their group has no official ties to the local Internet forum.

Those wishing to donate new socks may drop them off at the office of local attorney David Mosley, 332 Spring St. in Jeffersonville from April 2 through April 13.

"We really appreciate Mr. Mosley's gracious assistance in allowing socks to be collected at his office and to be the public face of this otherwise anonymous project. His participation is the key logistical piece that has made this effort possible," said one organizer.

Socks collected will be given to Clean Socks Hope to be distributed to those needing them. For more information, contact David Mosley at 812-282-9000."
*********************************************************************************************
UPDATE:  This is David Mosley. I am not associated with this effort. I do not know anything about the validity of the organization that is supposed to be the beneficiary. They may be fine and tip top, but I do not know, and do not endorse it.

Please disregard the invitation to involve me in your charity. I am in favor of charity. But I was involved in this without my permission or consent. (it may simply be an april fool 'joke' on me.) 

I do favor charitable acts for the homeless. I recommend making donations to Haven House or Exit Zero in Jeffersonville. Thank you. -David Mosley
*********************************************************************************************


Sorry to hear about that, David.  The charity involved seems to be legit and a good thing overall.  I understand that GG has graciously offered to take on the responsibility of receiving the donations, so hopefully that will smooth any ruffled feathers and still help out a worthy cause.

She's A Lady

The exceedingly genteel Lisa (AKA abbysnana), the gal who puts the “miss” in Miss Manners, recently called for more civilized behavior on the part of others:


Lisa helpfully demonstrates how to conduct oneself as a, “real lady” and “decent human being” on local blogs and forums:


Good day, indeed.


The modesty and humility demonstrated here by Lisa concerning her most worthy contributions to Goliath's forum is simply stunning.  Very admirable.  And notice how she very tastefully switches to lower case lettering when she feels that she must, unfortunately, use a bit of bad language when daring someone to "bring it?"  Not perfect, of course, but who is, really? At least she isn't lowering herself to the gutter by making fun of someone's manhood, right? 


Well, I suppose that technically she isn't actually calling Goliath's manhood into question here, as females can be called "ass kisser" as well as males.  And it can be plainly seen that she chose to keep strictly to the high road by choosing NOT to use a picture that portrayed any type of nudity.  Very gracious, considerate and exquisitely classy, don't you think?


And compassionate wishes for the end of someone's pain and suffering - always most kind and gentle and welcome in polite society.  

Lisa also demonstrates the art of courteous correspondence:

Just in case it gets deleted I want to make sure you read it.

In reply to this post by cindiloohoo 

Yes, the almighty Cindi speaks her caca again, presuming to be the ultimate authority on how everyone should behave. I am sure I can safely speak for others when I say, stick a sock puppet in it Cindi. You have no idea who you are really talking to and are once again basing your ridiculous conclusions on someone's words that you have taken and twisted to satisfy your sick and misplaced judgments. I think that you did everyone a favor by never having another child and I wonder just how fast your only child fled to get away from you when they became of age. You are cruel and mean spirited and not a day goes by on these forums that you do not run roughshod over someone if they dare cross your path. 


Note to Goliath and others: I am sorry if this seems harsh but I am sick and tired of this woman trying to demean everyone that disagrees with her. You can delete it if you feel that is necessary, but I had the satisfaction of knowing that she at least read it.

As incomprehensible as the reasoning may seem to some, that post was apparently actually deleted from Goliath's site.  Fortunately for me, Lisa, being the soul of generosity, decided to make that extra effort and take that extra step to email it to me so that I could benefit from it.  Very kind and thoughtful.

And, as a gracious follow up:

You finally have been put in your place, and rightfully so. Fancy up that old Blog, I still bet know one visits and participates in your posts, carry on.

Yes, Lisa is VERY concerned with the issue of respectful, mannerly conduct at all times and takes great pains to gently remind and demonstrate to others how to act like a lady and a decent human being.  We barbarians are quite fortunate, indeed, that this great lady puts so much effort into raising the level of online discourse to her own commendable personal standards of decency and civilized behavior.

MAGIC NUMBERS

Goliath crows - lays egg!




VERY early this morning Goliath of the GAW News published a post where he crowed that the CCC's thread regarding the Mayoral debate had garnered only 96 views, while his Colisseum (sic) forum boasted 888 views from "interested Clark County voters."  Young Matt Chinn cheered this good news in a comment.


However, within just a few hours the CCC thread had over 1,000 views.  Did that many "interested Clark County voters" come out in droves in the early, early hours of the morning just to view that particular thread?

Not likely.  In fact, I think I know how it was accomplished.

Let me explain:

Last year a certain forum owner bragged repeatedly about her astronomical numbers of views.  Curious, I decided to check my own stats here on the Crazy Neighbor Lady blog.  I checked the stats, then went back to viewing my blog.  I decided to check the stats again, looking more closely at the rise and fall in views as they related to certain posts.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that my own view was now counted.  Just to be sure, I went back to the blog and refreshed the page a few times.  When I returned to the stats screen, sure enough, those views had been counted.  At last I had solved the mystery of the, quite frankly, unbelievable numbers that certain forum owner was claiming.  

As I watched the mounting view numbers on the CCC post this morning, I realized that someone, maybe several someones, knew the secret, as well. Also, it seemed that the same tactic could have been employed to give the impression that hordes of "interested Clark County voters," were swarming the Giant Goliath's Colisseum (sic) forum, as well.

Now, I'm willing to give the big guy the benefit of the doubt and believe that he didn't understand how easily view counts could be manipulated in that way...but Young Matt Chinn?  I couldn't help but believe he was aware of such practices, with his knowledge of all that internet stuff and junk.  I'm not saying Young Matt was manipulating the view counts, just that I think he probably knows that kind of thing happens and that view count numbers can't really be completely trusted...because sometimes numbers DO lie.

UPDATE:  I had originally titled this post Magic Tricks because I didn't see the post on the GAW News site when I returned there the last time this morning...but it's back now.  Perhaps I missed it somehow or some kind of editing process was going on at the time that made it seem like it had disappeared.  Just trying to be honest and fair, in case anyone saw this post in its original form before I amended it. 

Also - I wanted to say that I called Goliath "mule-headed" in my last post because he made a comment himself that (paraphrasing) perhaps he's a little mule-headed sometimes.  Since he'd made that observation himself, I didn't think I was being insulting by using it in a title of a post about him.  It was meant to be humorous, not hateful.

Congrats, Goliath - Quite an Achievement!

So, Goliath, I noticed that you never did answer a direct question to you on a recent thread at your forum - are you happy with the quality of conversation on your forum these days?   Or does “QueenNana” answer all of the “uncomfortable” questions for you now, as she did that one? 

I guess since she was thwarted in her attempt last summer to steal all the balls from the male members of the CCC, she had to settle for satisfying herself with the apparently easy theft of yours.

You’ve finally reached the apex, there, big fella:

People have been “outed” (while you were told by the new “queen,” when you objected to such behavior when it was being coyly threatened that it’s, “harmless, unless you carry it too far,” – and promptly thereafter the “outing,” began).

Strong insinuations that border on outright accusations of people having affairs has been tolerated and left to stand for anyone to see, with no regard whatsoever to either the veracity of such claims or the effect the spread of such a nasty rumor might have on innocent people and their loved ones.

People have been repeatedly accused of the vilest of crimes with absolutely no supporting evidence beyond the word of the accuser.

People have been called profane names and threatened with physical violence (which, to your “credit,” you quickly deleted upon discovery, but it happened, nonetheless, and documentation of it exists).

People are routinely told to basically “get lost,” by the new “queen,” and her drones if they object to such dialogue.

And on and on it goes – where it stops – nobody knows.  

You must be absolutely dizzy with delight at how popular your forum has become with a certain large, “flock.”

Congratulations, big guy.  You’ve managed to raise that sleazy, slanderous cesspool called the All Counties Chatter from the dead and have given its “queen” the seat at the head of your table - quite an accomplishment, brave warrior.  It’s a good thing you ignored all those so-called “friends,” who tried to warn you that this kind of thing would inevitably happen.  After all, who cares what kind of irresponsible, reprehensible behavior is taking place on your site – controversy equals views, right?

In all aspects except for banning people, you’ve become the very thing that you have repeatedly expressed such righteous outrage at the CCC for being.  There’s a word that perfectly describes such a person…and I think you know what it is.  But it's not uncommon that a much higher price to pay than originally expected occurs when one chooses to deal with the Devil, is it?




UPDATE:  And now I see that one of the new/old flock has taken the bold step of bringing the thinly-hooded (wink, wink) racist strategy into play (click image to enlarge - but be warned, it's repulsive).

Alas, how far the Mighty Giant's once honorable realm has fallen - straight into the gutter.

Jeepers Creepers!

Someone was creeping around and peeping into the vehicles of attendees at a rally held to protest the recently reported appalling conditions at the Ogle Animal Shelter, apparently hoping to find "evidence" that the rally attendees weren't really animal lovers at all!  A poor, shy dog who becomes anxious and upset around strange people was subjected to the horrifying visage of this "Peeping Thomasina" peeping in at him through the window as he awaited his owner's return to the normally safe and secure confines of their van.  

Fortunately, the van was equipped with a surveillance camera and this creepy peeper was photographed at the exact moment the poor, shy dog was subjected to the trauma of being spied upon by the strangest stranger of them all!

A Fable

"The leopard doesn't change its spots...no matter how many free dye jobs you offer it."




The Scorpion and the Frog

One day, a scorpion looked around at the mountain where he lived and decided that he wanted a change. So he set out on a journey through the forests and hills. He climbed over rocks and under vines and kept going until he reached a river.
The river was wide and swift, and the scorpion stopped to reconsider the situation. He couldn't see any way across. So he ran upriver and then checked downriver, all the while thinking that he might have to turn back.

Suddenly, he saw a frog sitting in the rushes by the bank of the stream on the other side of the river. He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.

"Hellooo Mr. Frog!" called the scorpion across the water, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?"

"Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly.

"Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die too, for you see I cannot swim!"

Now this seemed to make sense to the frog. But he asked. "What about when I get close to the bank? You could still try to kill me and get back to the shore!"

"This is true," agreed the scorpion, "But then I wouldn't be able to get to the other side of the river!"

"Alright then...how do I know you wont just wait till we get to the other side and THEN kill me?" said the frog.

"Ahh...," crooned the scorpion, "Because you see, once you've taken me to the other side of this river, I will be so grateful for your help, that it would hardly be fair to reward you with death, now would it?!"

So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river. He swam over to the bank and settled himself near the mud to pick up his passenger. The scorpion crawled onto the frog's back, his sharp claws prickling into the frog's soft hide, and the frog slid into the river. The muddy water swirled around them, but the frog stayed near the surface so the scorpion would not drown. He kicked strongly through the first half of the stream, his flippers paddling wildly against the current.

Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog's back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.

"You fool!" croaked the frog, "Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?"

The scorpion shrugged and did a little jig on the drowning frog's back.

"I could not help myself. It is my nature."

Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.
