Just because nobody has posted anything in a while. Like the brave Jeremy Ryan, we can't let it die!

I shudder whenever this thread pops up again.

I always read it as "Segway Jeremy Ryan III", as if the man has re-produced.

We are coming up short in the money department and the price of bronze is way up. So the statue of Jeremy on his chariot will be cast in another material. Do people have any ideas what would be the most appropriate?

Beans. Thicken it up with brown sugar. Better do it while it's still cold out.

The Committee met and decided that we don't want to use cheaper materials. Instead we have decided to scale it down a bit and make a smaller statue of Segway Jeremy Ryan leading the historic protest against the fascist Walker regime. We know there are a few skeptics out there, but once it has been installed on the Capitol concourse there will be universal acclaim and agreement that it is a great tribute to the historic protests.

Working hard!

Perhaps we could melt down the "King Barry" statue and use it for this outstanding cause?

Do you think Jeremy and his segway would stand still while the molten bronze was poured over him?

Sometimes I lie awake at night contemplating just how much I hate Segway Jeremy Ryan. I'm not sure if it's his political activism, the Segway or the name Jeremy Ryan, but my whole being is consumed with a boiling hatred for the man. Did you know he smokes pot? And rides a Segway? Yeah, he does both.

I just hope that at some point in the next ten years Jeremy Ryan no longer makes the front page of TDPF. It will be so wonderful when I can put this dark, dark chapter of my life to rest.

That could be a contributing factor to your weight gain. My advice, let it all go. Ryan (both of them ha!), Althouse, Republicans, old fiances should not cause you such grief.

pj: I'm going to give back to you a piece of advice you gave me way back on page 4 of this thread. Not because it is good advice. It isn't. But because, well, you seem like a guy who could use some advice - good, bad - any advice. And also because, here in America, in 2013, no one should have to go to bed at night with a head entirely empty and a stomach spilling over with sugary drinks.

pjbogart wrote:Meade, I'm not generally in the business of giving morons advice, but I suggest that you have a conversation with your wife about this so she can tell you to drop it. If Jeremy Ryan is indeed on his deathbed, and my understanding is that he's always been disabled, your accusations that he's faking his illness could wind up being actionable because he could assert that your false claims impeded his ability to collect donations to pay for his medical treatment.

If Jeremy Ryan was able to establish standing and damages, this thread would likely be evidence against you and your behavior would make you a very unsympathetic person to both a judge and a jury.

I'm not exactly a fan of Jeremy Ryan. But far be it from me to impugn his character by questioning his disability or illness. You're treading on thin ice at the moment with no upside and a huge downside.

You don't have to swing at every pitch.

No, Hen, not one person, anywhere, goes to bed hating the Solidarity Singers. Only in your overactive imagination does anyone, at any time, hate the Solidarity Singers. Everyone who feels anything for the Solidarity Singers feels only empathy. And pity.

But do you, Hen, go to bed hating your imagined Solidarity Singer "haters"?

Ouch. At your advanced age, Hen, that could be serious. Maybe you should get a homeopathic chiropractic naturapathic doctor to take a look at it.
