On Scrooges and Sadsacks

I guess he’s referring to us?  The grammar oopsy aside, the only thing that’s “pathetic” here is the argument.

Assuming that LGF hilarity as subject matter isn’t sacrilege for a blogger on a Christian holiday*, and that those of us who recognize it might have still found a way to spend time with our families over the weekend (in fact, I scheduled a post in advance so I could do just that), let’s take a look at how busy Gus 802 was over the same time span:

    Poor Gus just got flattened under a bus. Don’t open up your pie hole if you don’t want to get chin checked by chenzen!

  2. Barrett Brown says:

    Lol. Two houses…

  3. Roger says:

    So gussy? You’ve voluntarily given up your individuality to another person who has complete say over your use of the internet. An extremely limited use. Whose sack is truly the sad one?

  4. Archonix says:

    I was laid up most of christmas day after drinking what turned out to be very bad Cava, which didn’t combine well with a fever that had also been building, so I spent the day enjoying my presents and browsing the web. Adding to Casa Dawson’s woes, my aunt is going through chemo right now so I had to stay away from the big party we normally have lest I infect her with my spanish fizzy wine fever or whatever it was.

    Perhaps Gus should think about what reasons people might have for being around on christmas, instead of just blindly screaming “j’accuse!” whenever someone doesn’t fit his perception of How Things Should Be.

    • Basement Cat says:

      I ended up getting a case of the sniffles for Christmas, and I didn’t even overindulge in anything. 😦 Something must have been going around. I’m still trying to fight it off.

  5. apachegunner says:

    and it is readily apparent that 802 spent much of that time over here, in fact it seems all of the slimey green things spend an inordinate amount of their time right here at DoD, isn’t that odd?

    • wolfie says:

      “Not that I got curious….”
      Say what?
      Did Gus hit DoD by sheer accident when looking for Bach’s Christmas cantata?
      Did someone tell him we were handing out free gingerbread?

      • Arachne says:

        Knowing Gus, he was probably looking for a rendition of “Walking ‘Round in Women’s Underwear.”

      • Basement Cat says:

        I used to be acquainted with someone of the feline persuasion, now departed, who shall remain nameless. Suffice it to say that the humans who shared his household used to serenade him with “Walking ’round in human underwear!”

    • Arachne says:

      What? Did he think we can’t go over to the Swamp and check out his activity? What a complete moron.

      Of course Gus will say that he’s an athiest or whatever so it’s all right but as Christians we shouldn’t have been posting on our “holiest day” – ignoring, of course, that we have members who are Jewish and that Christmas ISN’T the holiest day of the Christian calendar – Of course, once the presents are opened and the omelets have been eaten, there isn’t a whole lot to do on Christmas but wait for dinner and play football in the street.

    • poteen says:

      It’s not odd. It’s sad. Think of the kid with the overprotective mother, staring out the window at all his friends playing on a sunny day. Mommy won’t let him out to play because he may get chicken pox or that wicked DoD bug./

      • Arachne says:

        I often wonder if Gus isn’t just a little jealous at the fun we have and the exchange of ideas that we allow. Trudging back in the snow, dragging his sled back home after Chunky tells him he can go to the hill but isn’t allowed to slide down it.

      • poteen says:

        Charlie ‘Mommie Dearest’ Johnson. lol

      • wolfie says:

        Daddy Dearest!

        (I am soooo going to steal that idea, Poteen!)

    Gus and many others spend time here. Dark Falcon, Floral Giraffe, SFZ, Space Jiz, marjoriemoon, Kragar (Proud to be a Kafir) How does that nic survive the constant purges? And of course, he who drops N Bombs in the dead of night always has this tab open.
    They are a curious lot. They know thousands, not hundreds, but thousands of their fellow former Lizard friends have been slandered, banned,or walked away from mad king yertles fifedom and yet they all are conviced it won’t happen to them.

    Cato the Elder, Ludwigvanquixote and now it appears, even Iceweasel and jimmeh have felt the wrath of the Johnson.

    Which one of you will be next? Better keep hitting that tip jar.

    He’s a Johnson boot licker.

    • Arachne says:

      That post was a complete cry for attention. I’m sure raids on other blogs will be next, since I’m sure he sees KKKilgore Catfish as his chief competition for Charlie love now that the Quack Quack has been banished to the gulag.

  8. Bureaucat says:

    As a regular/irregular LGF poster I never bothered to look over here. It was when I found there were fewer and fewer people who I could have an intelligent conversation with – without getting shouted down that I started looking for other venues. Ironically it was my nic being quoted here when I asked Kilgore for a reference on the Oathkeepers claim that drew the site to my attention. When I posted openly asking for help getting a password for Blogmocracy I was banned.

    So after years of posting on LGF with no one stalking me I post here for a few weeks and bam- I get an e-mail from and LGFer asking why I got banned.

    Psycological projection looms large with these ones.

  9. Demos says:

    “…even Iceweasel and jimmeh have felt the wrath of the Johnson.”

    I was wondering what happened to that little whore and her Scottish pimp.

    • snowcrash says:

      The iceweasel certainly knows how to take over, spoil things and then move along. DoD regulars speculated that when all the old timers were gone she would start to destroy her own group and she did, namely Ludwig. It is what she does.

  10. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    Does anyone know for a fact that the scrunt is banned or timed out…or is it just conjecture due to it not posting lately?

    My personal theory has always been that it appeared on the scene with a specific agenda in mind, to reshape the swamp into something more to its liking.

    And frankly, it has been pretty effective in that respect.

      re: #209 Dark_Falcon
      Charles lives in their heads. They’ve also been fixating on Floral Giraffe and SFZ lately. Memo to the stalkers: Both of those California Girls are way out of your league.
      I think not having Ludwig or Ice around much is giving them a serious case of abandonment issues.

      I don’t think she has been Blocked. A registered user would have to search her nic to verify it. I think your personal theory is quite accurate.

      • poteen says:

        SanFranciscoZionist, in and of itself, is a non-sequitor.

      • Arachne says:

        They define “fixating” as taking their otherwise moronic comments and holding them up to ridicule.

        So….five years ago, Chunky was “fixated” on the Huffington Post and Daily KKKOS then, Dork?

    • poteen says:

      Weazy is the only reason I would ever have for getting a sock. Tweaking her high strung ass is a laugh riot.

  11. snowcrash says:

    Hey Gus, not everyone is Christian, or has kids and family to spend the day with. Some folks have poor health or disabilities that keeps them in. Just be glad some of us were here and at the Blogmoc to keep you company. Get an anonymous nic next time and join us, just try to lose the attitude. You might have fun.

  12. stonemason says:

    So, it’s wrong to take a moment to post on a Holiday, but it’s okay to post all day long, during, yanno, working hours? Like most LFG posters?

  13. dwells38 says:

    poteen :Charlie ‘Mommie Dearest’ Johnson. lol

    Heh. Where does CJ stand on wire hangers?

  14. poteen says:

    Is that a straight line? You know where the joke is going.

    • dwells38 says:

      No it wasn’t a tasteless backroom abortion joke. It was a scene from Mommie Dearest where Joan Crawford absolutely freaks out on her poor daughter for using wire hangers to hang up clothes vs wooden ones.

      Here’s the You Tube clip. Just paste in the URL as I’m not sure how to get the embedded code to work here and I don’t see a previewer:

      • poteen says:

        I know. But the straight line led to a lot of places and I forgot the sarc tag.

        Never give an Irishman a straight line./// 🙂

  15. Bunk X says:

    Hey Gus! Your master posted Seven Holy Threads on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, including another hate-post directed at Pamela Geller. Pheew.

    And it’s actually Faye Dunaway playing Joan Crawford.

    “your league.” Yeah, maybe the Pole Vault league, as in wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot….

  19. Bagua says:

    The Iceweasel and the cowardly Jimma only show up when they are alerted by email that there is prey to feed on.

    I started in on the vile weasel/slima immediately after being emailed evidence that Charles was emailing the weasel and others with instructions to try to push certain “lizards” into getting angry and posting something they could be banned for. This heads-up came from a “lizard” in good standing in their group who they thought they could trust, and shall remain unnamed by me.

    • Lily says:

      You have got to be kidding? Oh I believe you but this is just beyond crazy. He e-mails them to get a lizard banned. What a coward. It is actually worse than I thought. And I had already thought it was really bad.

    • Basement Cat says:

      At least this pretty well proves that Asswhistle and Jimmah are not Charles’ socks.

      But why anybody puts up with this shite is beyond even my comprehension.

      Do they figure that being on Chucklehead’s site gives them some attention that they couldn’t get any other way? Earth to lizardoids: It. Does. Not. Work.

    • swamprat says:

      Now that is interesting. Even more interesting is that I believe it. You know, LGF used to be the place to go for insightful commentary, unmainstream news, and reasoned debate. But today? Drama! Secret cliques! Stealth double secret probation!

      LGF; Your number one spot for intrique. A little faux exitement for the keyboard set.

    There was definitely some kind of method: Out of nowhere, Asswhistle and Pimpeh would suddenly appear in a thread and while one systematically down-dinged the ‘offending’ posts, the other attacked, followed by the usual crowd of zombie down-dingers every time the victim tried to defend him/herself. All this while the rest of the forum looked on in cowardly silence. A thoroughly disgusting spectacle which drove off the many of those who escaped banning.
