It seems a little late to form a mob. Justice has already been served.

sportingo has a user account?

Can we make sure justice is served Eastern Standard Time? Bryce doesn't like to stay up.

It seems a little late to form a mob. Justice has already been served. Well, what am I going to do with all these pitchforks and torches?

Oh, we'll find use for them soon enough.

Midgets should be kept as pets... Look, I said as much in the thread in question and feel that in order for the movement to gain the appropriate momentum, we need to make sure that message is heard. This may be something the torch-and-pitchfork set would be interested in. You know, since we've already paid for them.

Well grum, you just have to find the next sportingo before the pantheon does.

I'll take a new torch but I prefer to use my own pitchfork. It was made for me by Hattori Hanzo.

Those dicks sucked, and their content was mush. I say let the midgets roam, Weedy. Seriously. The domesticated ones look so sad all the time. [is that funny? I don't know anymore. I live in the UK and we don't know where the line is now.]

And they said irony was dead.

Do they? Don't we have to call it "vitally challenged" these days?

posted by JJ at 02:49 PM on January 29

At least take down the sportingo account. Or let us and our pitchforks at it! (Lemme use that Hanzo steel pitchfork, MrFrisby!)

74 midgets just showed up at my house and convinced me otherwise. Call off the conference. In an unrelated note - I won't be making it to work for several days. Officially, I fell down the stairs, but managed only to heavily damage my ankles and shins.

The bite marks about the toes, ankles and calves are going to be hard to explain away.

They were short ... and precise.

You need a lineup to identify the culprits?

Erstwhile, SpoFi's 5th birthday goes unnoticed. Pity, that.

Bite marks on the toes? It was the midgets that gave Barbaro laminitis.

Erstwhile, SpoFi's 5th birthday goes unnoticed. Five years? Seriously? Holy fuck. That is five years of my life I'll never get back... :)

Can NBX be gone gone gone, also?
