“Strangers viciously read what I posted online.” – Charles Johnson, viciously whining


Charles’ BFF once offered to help – it would have been a hoot, but he got the boot.

Now let’s talk about gun pimples…

Yeah. I said pimples.

2021-08-01 Charles Johnson’s Top Twitter Interactions via Chirpty.com

Those are the twitteroids Charles Johnson interacts with the most, by “liking”, retweeting, and/or communicating with. Some unsurprising names on that list, yet some are oddly missing. So how many people blocked the magical jazzy ponytailed Twitterpest? (Hint: There are more than a few.)

From the draft archives: In Memoriam: Gus 802

Last edited on 9 October 2011, ChenZhen’s post has never seen the light of day, and it’s still relevant. – Briareus
_________________________________________________________________________

Of course, the title assumes that Gus really means what he said here:

So, that assumption made, we of the BRC have decided to shower our readers with a few gifts in eulogy, as this particular lizard was the butt of many, many jokes here at DoD and therefore shall be missed.

First, we might as well direct you toward memory lane, and link Gus’s official tag (every thread we mentioned Gus). There’s some good stuff in there.

As for highlights, who can forget this?

Or when Gus decided to chide DoD for posting a thread on Christmas eve and Christmas day, after posting 31 comments and an LGF Page over the same time span?

Or when he managed to post an amazing 903 comments in a single week (therefore inspiring the twitter doppelganger “Gus_903“)?

We could go on and on, of course.

But perhaps it would be more fun to make this a bit more interactive, and use The World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine™ to preserve Gus’s legacy for all time.


From the Drafts File: Pamela’s T-Shirt

Found in the “drafts” file, incomplete, and it’s never been finalized. Last modified by ChenZhen 26 September 2011, the comments were found in another of Charles’ Pamtrum threads titled Media Matters: The Worst of Pamela Geller.

This is the photo in contention, file image tracks to JihadWatch January 2009, exact date unknown.

Interestingly enough, Charles’ trashpost entitled Pamela Geller: Muslims Firebombed Their Own Mosque in Queens was cross-posted at another blog and featured the same image. [Related t-shirt trivia here.]

Alexa, Little Green Footballs & an Algorithm

Yep. He’s just a tad above where he was in January 2020. Has he dropped the bots? Has he finally bottomed out or is he heading for another popularity plunge? No one knows, but we do know this:

In July 2008, Little Green Footballs clocked in at about 15,500 on Alexa website rankings.

Meanwhile, someone’s hitting Charles Johnson’s Twitter archive and messing with him.

From the 2010 LGF Archives

That’s also why Charles does it, and we know it. Kudos to DEZes,


Charles Johnson Complains About Black Displays.


Twitterverse Shrugged.

Charles “updated” his profile image and no one gave a foster, but he wanted to be sure we didn’t miss it. We noticed that someone had messed with it to mask the photogrodys, so we restored it to something closer to reality and gave it our best shot at a worthless mark.

 

 

 

 

 

We couldn’t get the suet pallor quite right, and he still appears a bit narrower in the neck department than in real life – not that he has either one. The un-enhancement indicates some semblance of a ponytail (judging from the terrified stray grays flailing against the hidden scrunchie sucked up tight to his no-neck on the right). Crack spackle hides the pumas in his crevasses.

His head was likely not vertical either: his torso would have been leaning backwards and no chair back could take that kind of abuse for long.

 

Got bored of that non-project real fast, but a dark mockery oozed from behind the rec room couch, from under the cat stuff, and whispered, “What’s behind the mask?”


“Alexa, what’s up with Little Green Footballs?


Something unusual happened in the month of April that garnered Charles an odd boost in traffic. Instead of the regular moguls followed by a downhill cannonball, the increase was relatively even and noticeably steady, suggesting that Charles is messing with his view stats again.


April was the month that the Chinese Lung AIDS pandemic peaked, but that wouldn’t explain the steady increase, and neither would all the inane Seth Meyers videos he co-opts.

Maybe we should have put a tracker on it, but it’s moot at this point.

He plateaued for a balmy 18 days before Alexa woke up and said, “WTF? You tryin’ to be a ‘splody food pimple* or what?” and knocked him off the statistical futon. Again.
