Do people really believe this?

Posted in Quit It with tags , , on May 7, 2012 by mickgirk

Do they? For real?

Wayne Gary, Richardson, Tx:

“HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF! Ted Nugent has been harassed, bullied, intimidated and persecuted because he is outspoken about the Obama regime! During the Nazi’s reign of terror those who were the most outspoken were also tortured, raped and executed “legally.” Are you scared? You should be! First the Antichrist’s will come for Ted and other noble, honorable and courageous men and women, and then they will come for you unless you are willing to accept the mark of Obama/Satan, and give your total allegiance to him! And what will that do for you? But maybe provide you some time, minor temporary comfort, and an eternity of weeping and gnashing of teeth unless you repent. Don’t ever forget, you may befriend Satan/Obama, but he hates you with every fiber in his being, and when he is done using you, he will take you out without mercy and extreme prejudice. Note: Hitler committed suicide. When the Russians stormed into Germany, they brutally raped 2 million German women. 1 in 10 of those women committed suicide. No doubt many of those women once gleefully cheered/chanted “heil Hilter” with such enthusiasm and vigor, the same way many chanted “yes we can” in 2008 for Barak Hussein Obama. After the German women gave their total allegiance to Hitler, what did he do for them in their time of extreme need? What could he do for them? Nothing! And what will your Mein Fuhrer Obama do for you in your time of need when the days and nights turn black with unspeakable misery and suffering? Nothing! Obamaities; don’t confuse this time of “Obama money” for a time in the near future when you are digging holes in the ground for grub worm meals!”

Protip: Peruse the Patriot Action Network if you want to see some of the really stupid/scary shit people type. A cursory visit shows that they keep the insanity off of their front page now, but it’s unbelievable, and still there.

Paul still doesn’t get it

Posted in Funny, Quit It with tags , , , on April 10, 2012 by mickgirk

So back in February, I wrote a little blog post, imploring internet losers like Paul Christoforo and Dr. Lou to quit it. If you scroll down to the comments section, you can see that Paul took it personally (and missed my message entirely,) accusing me of flipping burgers for a living and threatening to sue me for defamation of character.

Despite being entertained by Paul’s puffery and ignorance of both the law and properly expressing oneself, I almost felt a little guilty for my post. Almost like I pointed at a kid on the short bus and laughed at him for being stupid. After all, Paul had been well-castigated for his poor choices, why join in with one more relatively small jab in the balls? Regardless, the point I made in that post is that people that don’t understand the Internet need to stop trying to fool it, or play it for fools. Especially if the IQ of said loser is well below the IQ of the average Twitter-er.

But, as Paul has recently demonstrated, a shit leopard cannot change it’s spots.

So what did he do to be a dumdum now? 

If you recall, ol’ boy claimed that he could get into PAX East whenever he wanted, whether or not the event organizers wanted him to. You know, because he’s hot shit? In case you don’t recall:

So anywho, Paul tweeted a series of photos from PAX East, and claimed it was in fact him on the show floor.

One thing though. As it turns out, the event organizers, wanting to play a joke on ol’ boy, took the pictures and sent them to Paul in a message, expect him to turn around and take credit for the photos. Which he did. It’s all detailed on the Twitter account for the event.

So obviously, now ol’ boy is reveling in hordes of Twitter users telling him how much he sucks for taking the bait and being an asshole once again. I probably should have ascertained by now that Paul is such an attention whore that he’s willing to do dumb things to get noticed by the Internet, but I’ve always had the nagging feeling that this dude really knows not what he does, and is that misguided on how to maintain any sort of career.

Anywho, for anyone trying to not crash and burn online like Paul, DON’T TRY AND FOOL THE INTERNET. If you have to go on tirades on how awesome you are, you’re probably not. Common sense. But if you must lie to online denizens, at least be somewhat more clever at it. For example, trying to fool people that naturally know more about computers than the average guy (gamers)? Not smart. Ok thank you come again.

The Beatles Redux… what?

Posted in Newz, Quit It with tags , , , on April 3, 2012 by mickgirk

So, hey, breaking news: Can you imagine The Beatles’ brand being revived for a new run with a new generation?

Sounds like sacrilege? But of course. Nevertheless, James McCartney, son of Sir Paul, has hinted at a possible formation of a new band, called “The Beatles – The Next Generation

Apparently, someone forgot to tell Mr. McCartney that April Fools Day has already passed. Someone else is probably in his ear that this is a fantastic idea. In the same way that Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park was such a cool idea. Or the Star Wars Christmas Special:

So, to recap. This guy:

wants to restart the Beatles. With Zak Starkey on drums, Dhani Harrison on guitar, and, of course, Sean Lennon pretending to be John Lennon.

Like this, for The Beatles

Technically, if anyone is allowed to do this, it’s these guys. After all, they are all sons of the original group. But still, what kind of idea is this? Couldn’t these people at least choose a different band name? No?

To be fair, Dhani Harrison did play guitar on a Wu-Tang song. And Wu-Tang is both for the kids and forever:

But other than that, ummm… this is what James McCartney does:

I guess that’s not terrible, but it sounds like coasting off of an already well-tread style and famous heritage to me. Which is also what this “band” idea sounds like to me, collecting an easy couple of millions for a shameless cop-out. I guess good for them, but infinite bad karma forever if they go through with this. The Beatles had their chance, fellas. Let it go.

And whoever pays to see this shlock is probably the same kind of person who watched Sarah Palin on the Today Show this morning… a total jerkoff.

Nonsense about nonsense movies

Posted in Quit It with tags , , on March 21, 2012 by mickgirk

If for no other reason than it would be hilarious:

I’m not sure where this comes from, I saw this thanks to a user on Reddit. Clearly, it’s fake, but imagine the possibility of how awful The Dark Knight would have been had Michael Bay helmed the film? Exactly, it’s a morbid curiosity.

Speaking of morbid curiosities, I’m sure you know that Mr. Bay is hard at work ruining our childhoods for further profit:

EDIT: Since the damn video won’t embed, here’s the link: http://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/xpi22w_michael-bay-talks-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles_shortfilms

Yes, our beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will get the Transformers treatment, and no, it will not be easy to watch. But such is capitalism when applied to the movie business, which means that anything you ever loved about American culture will be repackaged and sold to you again… and if it’s Michael Bay doing the selling, it will be crass and unmercifully stupid, yet so many people will shell out money for it. Economics 101, the same reason the McRib comes back every November and people are actually still excited.

To further piss on your outlook, here are some other once-awesome movies getting the remake touch:

Akira (in live action)

American Psycho

Carrie

Lethal Weapon (only if this is the remake)

Scarface

There’s a ton more here, I don’t feel like finding all of the ones I think are incredibly stupid. Hollywood might as well bankroll Troll 2 Part 2oh wait….

Kony 2012 founder busted for drunkenly masturbating in public

Posted in Funny, Quit It with tags , , on March 16, 2012 by mickgirk

Didn’t believe that Kony 2012 was nonsense? I’m sure you may still think that the “cause” is legit, but if your leader is caught on a bender masturbating and vandalizing cars…  point proven.

From MSNBC:

 A co-founder of Invisible Children, the group behind the “KONY 2012” video on alleged atrocities by an African warlord, was detained after a witness reported a man masturbating and acting strangely,NBCSanDiego.com reported.

Jason Russell was detained after a man was reported masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, said police Lt. Andra Brown, NBCSanDiego.com reported.


Why this is even more amusing.

Try as you might, it’s hard to gain national attention for an altruistic cause AND be a scumbag at the same time.

Racist stickers, and the possible birth of a trend

Posted in Quit It with tags , on March 16, 2012 by mickgirk

While I watched VCU begin the upset train again by knocking off Wichita State, I checked my phone. You know, got my email and the like. Then I saw this on a outraged friend’s Facebook:

Yes, that does say what you think it says: “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012

Obviously, righteous anger ensued, as some obviously blasted the existence of said sticker, while others tried to condemn it without making it appear as they support Obama. Either way, I wondered this… where did this come from? What kind of organization would actually mass produce a sticker like this, and why?

From what I’ve gathered, a host of merchandise has been produced with this statement on it. It would appear that it’s not made by one organization, but rather a group of unrelated racists. In one case written about in 2010, Zazzle user XUBERALLES was mass-producing t-shirts with this design, as well as things like baby clothes that say “liberals hate me.” How charming.

Now, with merch like this and a username referencing “Deustchland uber alles”, it’s pretty easy to see where this asshole was coming from. Zazzle eventually took down this store, after much criticism.

I think the good news is that I can’t determine that there is any one political group pushing this garbage out there.  It would seem that it’s the work of individuals… right?

Maybe, but keep your eyes open. According to a Google search, the most popular iteration of this phrase on Facebook was taken down last year.

However, searching on Google allowed me to figure out that there may be a trend arising in the near future; “Don’t renege in 2012.” Indeed, some have already gotten on printing that:

While others have started Facebook pages with that exact message. While it’s obviously not catching on like wildfire, if a more organized batch of hatemongers get a hold of it, expect to start seeing this phrase a lot in the summer and fall of this year.  Key thing to note here is, if this phrase ever takes off, and your backwards uncle tries to tell you “don’t renege in 2012” isn’t a racially biased statement, REFERENCE THIS POST. Hopefully, you won’t have to.

Laughing at Birthers

Posted in Quit It with tags , on February 15, 2012 by mickgirk

NOTE: I’ve been sitting on this post for awhile. Not because I was waiting for “breaking news” or anything, but because I figured I’d wait until I was too lazy to find something else to write about. I believe that time has come.

When playing poker, at some point, you need to know when to fold your hand. That is, unless you are trying your best to part with your hard-earned money. Or you really suck at bluffing.

Birthers are dumb. We know this. They also don’t know when to quit, with hilarious consequences.

Take this, for instance.

Summary: Birther goes to court, tries to prove that Obama isn’t an American citizen, Obama doesn’t even bother sending a lawyer or any0ne to the court date, Judge throws case out.

Birther loses case to empty chair.

Lololol

—————-

Then birthers take to the web.

Wait for it….

….

Lolololol

Is picking on birthers like picking on a special needs child? Maybe, but at least I feel sympathy towards the special needs child. If politics were soda, birthers would be the Faygo to Obama’s Fresca. (I can’t be biased towards Obama, I don’t even like Fresca.) Maybe if their xenophobia and hatred wasn’t so appalling, I wouldn’t feel so inclined to make fun of them for being dumber than cinderblocks. Seriously, piss off, you’re making my America a more annoying place to live.

One more:

Thank you, I’m out.
