there's that and there's the CF retards. It is pretty amazing that he's lasted so long especially under the new ownership there.

It was a post in response to (who else?) AV1611VET. One of the mods took offense at my use of the phrase "Rodent's Posterior" to describe my indifference to his opinion on something.

Well, I'm certainly a Nathan Poe -- although I've been giving some thought to franchising myself.

But I can assure you right now, of all the Nathan Poes you know, I'm one of them.

And yet I would've happily traded in every last cherubim for a single royalty check.

Actually, NP, I've got to say that I am genuinely surprised you stayed as long as you did. I'm coming up 9 or 10 years there too and they haven't got rid of me yet. I assume that, if I keep saying 'heiferdust' in response to Herbie's posts, they'll kick me out eventually.

Your law is dumb. I'm sorry that is what you are most known for.

Tell me Nathan Poe about your other more interesting accomplishments that sadly are eclipsed by some dumb post you made on the Internet years ago.

This just reiterates the point I made earlier about there being no such thing as internet celebrity. Why anyone cares about real life celebrities that much though is pretty much unfathomable to me too. They're just people who have a talent that people find entertaining.

The internet is sort of a dumping ground, being famous on it is like being king of the city dump, a pretty meaningless title.
