A Very Gus-y Christmas at LGFPosted: December 27, 2013
As ChenZhen recently pointed out, just three short years ago Gus got out the step ladder, mounted his high horse and passed judgement on us “pathetic sadsacks”:
while simultaneously posting 30 comments and 1 link/page/thread thing over at LGF.
So what did Mr. 802 do to honor/respect/keep the holidays this year? Why he had not one but two posts promoted to the front page! The first concerned an innocuous Donald Trump tweet about Pope Francis. Not sure what moral lesson was to be had with that one.
But for the second, he worked himself up into a fine lather of righteous indignation because someone officially connected to the GOP and NRC [sic] had dared send out a tweet implying… wait for it… that Sandra Fluke has flabby arms. ZOMG!1!!eleventy This, he stated, constituted another “Great moment in Republican rebranding”, echoing one of his master’s lamer memes.
So who is this official spokesperson for the GOP and NRC? It’s someone using the Twitter handle @GOPFashionista. And Gus’ proof of “official connection”? This screenshot:
ChenZhen: As pathetic as that was, it just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Now there wasn’t much guessing going on in that previous thread, unfortunately, but I don’t think anyone could have called this. In addition to the aforementioned threads, here’s the final tally for Gus’s Christmas as prepared by Apollo:
Dec 24: 100 tweets 65 LGF comments
Dec 25: 93 tweets 33 LGF comments
You’re reading that right; that’s almost 200 tweets and almost 100 LGF comments. On Christmas.
And it’s not like he banged it all out in the morning before heading out to be with the family or something (not sure that’s possible given the sheer volume, but…). If you want to work in some time of day info, he puts in pretty full days on Twitter:
last tweet on the 23rd was at 10:23 PM
his tweets on the 24th cover 8:45 AM – 7:33 PM
his tweets on the 25th cover 8:01 AM – 9:21 PM
started tweeting on the 26th at 8:30 AM
And on Christmas Eve, his LGF comments were spread between 10:10 AM to 7:30 PM
Here’s one of the tweets, and this probably sums it up the best:
Should we feel bad for this guy? I mean, this is kinda sad, actually.
