Stop teasing us Chuck Schick

Postby juanton » Tue Apr 28, 2009 11:32 am

You gotta come back and whip this place back into shape.

Any one else with me in thinking that this place could use some spice again?

This shit cracks me up.
'Cuz if anyone posts anything that sounds exactly like a Chuck rant, they get lambasted and attacked. But stick Chuck's name on it, and suddenly it's Foronic Gold.

Newsflash folks: I know of at least one other Foron who actually was Chuck Schick. That account has since been suspended by the admins because of so-called inflammatory posts. And as someone in the know, watching all you Chuck fans get whipped into a frenzy over those posts (often while praising Chuck and pointing out how this other guy wasn't nearly so clever) was hi-fucking-larious. So why would he even want to return, knowing what a bunch of thin-skinned ninnies currently populate this place?

So this is like those hidden cam commercials where schmoes think they’re getting high end eye-talian food, and it turns out to be mass market sludge?

“I have a confession to make! Chuck Schick didn’t write anything… Pizza Hut delivered that rant!”

Yes I would. Meanie is mean sure but he's always been honest. And frankly I wasn't very active back in Chuck's days. I only know him through reputation.

More interesting still is that, if memory serves, you were one of the most vocal critics of that particular Foron, perhaps even instrumental in his account being suspended (not banned, mind you -- I don't want Jason jumping on me for suggesting he was -- but the account was created with an e-mail address which was no longer active when the suspension hit, so there was no way to reactivate it.)

Also, The Walrus was Paul.

Heh. In my house, "bobo" means pacifier.

Interpret that as you will.

Cool. I think, if memory serves me correctly, Henry Vilas was the first to assume that lordofthecockrings was Chuck.

Speaking of Henry, what happened to him? Did he just give up like nickle&dimed and cattyr, or did he decide to stay in St Maarten?

In my opinion, his shit was/is funny. I don't care what you know, who you know, or how you know, it won't change my opinion.

The big difference between the Chuck character and the other folks who you say got lambasted for acting/posting similarly, is that the lambasted didn't know how to prevent getting their asses handed to them. I could care less if he argued with himself or presented himself as a different character via another forum identity that eventually got suspended/banned. The character Chuck Schick posted quality jabs.

Edited to remove personal jab at Wagstaff.

I don't think your opinion is that for off from Wagstaff's, actually. He's has personally commented to me that he's missed my presence here on occasion.

No, the point is that I got away with all kinds of shit that would no longer stand here if posted under any other moniker (and I can attest to this unlike anyone), which is just one reason these posts of mine you're reading now should be treated as novelty, rather than some return-to-form. I have positively no interest in engaging in the Schickean dialogs of yore. That shit took time and an abysmally shitty job to pull off, and I no longer have either.

That said, I miss writing my old rant column for The Wisconsinite, so if anyone out there has inches to fill (heh) and a modest budget, talk to me. Otherwise, generally speaking, no free time = no free content (not to get all Bluntian on your asses).

Frankly, a lot of what drew me here in the first place has gone the way of Sunday night's dinner. It's flattering to think this place went south when I split, but even I'm not that big an egotistical asshole.

And what the fuck is up with some of you assholes jumping all over Walter? Jesus, the most compelling and entertaining foron to join the fray in a long-ass time and some of you dicks gotta go all "fuck tha po-lice" on him. Nice work there, fuckwads.

That is a common sentiment on Internet discussion forums, Chuck. The anti-police sentiment, I mean. I haven't figured out why it's so pervasive on the Internet as opposed to the "real world". Also pervasive on the internet: gun hoarders and collectors who will discuss gun purchases in a thread for 10 pages. Haven't figured the prevalence of that one out either. If we are to judge by the Internet community and use a venn diagram, we would have to conclude that a disturbingly large percentage of the population have enough weapons to arm a militant cult of 200 and a strong desire to use such weapons against local law enforcement.
