The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

That Whole Tucker Carlson Thing

Well, Blogger, bravo. ::slow clap:: you managed to crap out just when we needed you most. Seriously, Chuckles somehow ends up on Wonkette (was PP responsible for that?) and you promptly decide it's time for a scheduled service outage. Then to add insult to injury, instead of going for the scheduled 2 hours, it ends up taking 2 MORE hours to get everything sorted out.

This whole thing seemed to blow up pretty fast. I'm just kind of sitting here on the side watching the whole thing unfold. It's kind of like watching a car wreck happen ... only one of the cars has a bow tie.

The whole process was kind of ridiculous. It was a one-off post about somebody Chuckles saw at the video store. Chuckles blogs about it. Guy googles his name and finds it. Guy confronts him in person. Chuckles takes post down. Guy gets Chuckles fired. Chuckles puts post up plus new post detailing said firing. Wonkette links to Chuckles' site. 2.5 nanoseconds later, Chuckles site goes down. Now, it's finally back up and working.

I don't know if this story has legs or not, either way though, this ended up being a crazy day just for me ... which means I can only imagine what it has been like for Chuckles. He's been taking it all in stride though and we'll just have to see what happens down the road.

Hopefully his newfound internet attention will not go to his head and Chuckles will still be coming to hang out some time this weekend. There are definitely a goal to watch some movies, play some GHII, and perhaps hit up the fish and chippery for some delicious treats.

If this doesn't end up happening this glorious 3 day break, I will make a post that consists entirely of 1,000 frowny faces. And that is my promise to you.

Well, we can still mail MSNBC:

As well as harass him the way he's been harassing Chuckles:

Can AG come play videogames too this weekend?

well, if you're in the area and bring your own chair, sure.

My old roommate moved back and took his stuff out so now my apartment furniture consists of a couch and a TV.

Sucks about the furniture, dEn. My pal is selling his red leather couch if you want to take a look.

I don't think I will be emailing Tucker anytime soon, but I may email MSNBC about it.

Bring your own chair? You kids are such bachelors!!!

AG has to go to Baltimore in February. Maybe AG will take a little drive down south.

Sorry AG, that happens sometimes. I've got to redo the budget and see where furniture fits in.

Right now it's somewhere beneath HUGE-ASS TELEVISION.

Ah yes, the barker chairs and big ass TV. You are totally Joey and Chandler.

Maybe so, but I get to be Chandler.
