irony ignored

One thing I DO like about those comments from hysterical wimmen is the fact that they DENY being hysterical after writing a full-page, spittle-blotted comment. SEE WHAT I MEAN??? You want to REALLY piss off a hysterical woman?

Just tell her she's being hysterical. Then duck, because she's going to throw something breakable for no good reason.

Comments

Its the making up thats the fun part....or at least...what experience has taught me....so . .. yeah...

GO DAWGS!

I guess it's a moot point to remind you that you're the one bloggin' the shit out of this situation...

Good point...he is on a rant..

Don't look at me. I'm a "manlywoman" who isn't prone to the vapors. Horse wished me and others like me dead. Oh, dear me, I don't feel faint. *hand draped dramatically across my forehead*

But instead of hysterics and vapors, I just play with my Mossberg, my Marlin, my Ruger, my Mosin-nagant, and my Enfield. Much more satisfying.

Is there anything more beautiful than the "cha-chunk" of a shotgun pump?

ahhhh I see my mistake now. Several many years back I had a police officer inform me I was hysterical - I asked him what mental state he usually found beating victims in. I should have picked him up and threw him.

Can't think of much, MamaM...unless it's the click of my CZ's trigger after I've emptied the clip into the bullseye. :-)

Wow....now this is some good posturing.

I don't play with guns anymore, but if I did, I'd come to you guys for advice.....I got all that out of my system on a 50 cal., M-60, SAW, and my M-16.

I do miss the smell of the range though -- and even miss the smell of the cleaning solvent -- but not the hours of cleaning those damn weapons.

You go girls...

Damn, now it looks like I'M posturing...

Firepower aside, sometimes it's fun to throw a vase and make HIM clean it up.

Posted by: caltechgirl on September 3, 2004 05:07 PM

Royal Enfield .303 means never having to say you're sorry.

Apologies to Erich Segal.

Any time you want to shoot and your in Hoosier land, Mannaz, you just let me know. You buy the range time, I'll bring the guns.

I learned many moons ago how Rob loves to bait people (especially women). I'm fairly surprised to see that it still works like a charm ;-)

Posted by: Chablis on September 3, 2004 05:12 PM

ME? BAIT PEOPLE??? I do not know what you're talking about.

Posted by: Acidman on September 3, 2004 05:48 PM

Okay dear....whatever you say lol

Posted by: Chablis on September 3, 2004 06:01 PM

Oh well, baiting us or not, ol' A'man can sure get a good "conversation" going.

Posted by: Kate on September 3, 2004 06:36 PM

Oh, you mean he's just BAITING us? He doesn't mean ANY of it?! It's all just an act?! He really adores us and respects us and doesn't have a bitter hole in his Cracker heart big enough to drive a semi through that's givin' him such a lousy attitude? Well, dang. Silly freakin' me. Apologies, Acid. From now on I'll just ignore the gauntlet if you throw it down. And to think I had so much fun today and it was all just bait.

Posted by: Amy on September 3, 2004 11:56 PM

It has been fun, hasn't it, Chablis? And the best part is that some of his regular readers are just as good as he is at stirring up some of the "Spittle-blotted" and "hysterical" types.

I, for one, have thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Posted by: Mamamontezz on September 4, 2004 02:04 PM

Nice sermon, Chablis. I see a little bit of spittle, there, too. Guess everyone has their "breaking point", no? Check!

Actually, if you'll read my posts CLOSELY, especially the one that I wrote a few days ago that apparently started this whole crap about generalizations, you'll find that I haven't been around the blog long enought to know him as well as you say you do, and the the reason I'm still on this stupid comment board is because I just love a good Southern man and because I really, really like what I saw when I read Acid's "About me" blurb the first time I came here. I saw in that "About me" blurb (most eyecatching line "Losing everything you ever cared about in life and knowing that you'll never get it back")
what I NEVER seem to get to meet in person: a real good Southern guy, honorable, not a whole lot of hang-ups, not too emotionally retarded, with some real talent for prose and the sensitivity to use it well. Then I get on here and I see a little bit of that,but I also see a guy who keeps dissin' "wimmen" by making demeaning generalizations, is apparently wallowing in depression and self-doubt and regret over shit that's gone and done, and who really does seem to have a hole in his heart big enough to drive a truck through. I further see a pretty fine guy who really ought to get the fuck out of his little rut (the only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth--thanks to the wetnaps Hooter's gives with its wings for that quote) and get his Cracker ass out there and put it on the line if'n he wants to get his pole greased with any kind of regularity. It kinda made me mad.

So, you may be wondering why do I care? The answer is I don't know. Maybe cuz I"ve got a few hurricane days on my hand. The gub'mint around here got the vapors and gave us the weekend off for nuthin'. Maybe cuz I see in Acid a good somethin' going to waste due to self-indulgence and no small amount of self-pity. Or maybe it's just because I love to spar with people like him who bait people like me, and I like to bait them (and people like you) in turn. Or maybe I keep coming back for a combination of all those reasons. Pick your favorite. Whatever makes you happy and is most closely in line with you concieved notion of who I am, based on a few "spittle-blotted" comments. I haven't figured out why I keep coming back either.

BTW, Chablis, like Acid, I don't apologize for who the hell I am, either. Contrary to what you think, I'm no hirsute, placard-waving "feminist" Yeti clone. But I'm not gonna put a lid on what I think because it makes some uptight Crackers and their sycophantic Tammy Wynette-wanna-be hangers-on unhappy. Until Acidman kicks me the hell off his board (it is his board, after all), I'll be around giving shit (or compliments, depending on what I see) to him and all y'all whenever I see fit.

I also happen to have a little more respect for the strength of Acid's skull than you apparently do...I don't think a few whacks with a cluebat is going to fracture it at all, and will probably do him some good. If he ever lets the cluebat get close enough,that is.

Posted by: Amy on September 4, 2004 02:27 PM

Actually I think that if the cluebat doesn't fracture his skull, he'll turn around and jam it up the ass of the fool who swung it but didn't use enough force to finish the job :)

Good one, Graumagus! I'll get some mileage out of that.

Posted by: Amy on September 4, 2004 03:17 PM

Amy, really honey, you shouldn't feel so threatened by people here. Not once did I tell you to 'put a lid on it'. If you're that sensitive, perhaps this isn't the place for you. You're not gonna throw anything, are you? Your breathing seems to be rapid...would you like a paper bag?

Rob is everything that you say 'attracted' you to him in the first place. However, like everyone else in the world, he has his faults and issues. You take the good with the bad. Apparently you're one of them there 'wimmin' that catch yourself a man and then proceed to change him into what YOU think he should be. That won't fly here. Better women (and wimmin!) than you have tried.

And I'm sure most of the southerners here would take extreme offense to you comparing this yankee to Tammy Wynette.

Posted by: Chablis on September 4, 2004 03:32 PM

It certainly has, Mama ;-)

Posted by: Chablis on September 4, 2004 03:33 PM

So, Chablis, do you plan on joining us in Helen for the blogfest? I'd love to meet you, even though I'm merely the token Hoosier.

Posted by: Mamamontezz on September 4, 2004 03:38 PM

I'd love to make it to a blogfest and meet everyone, Mama, but it's not going to be this year. I'm neck deep in college work and real work and kids...maybe next year though!

Posted by: Chablis on September 4, 2004 03:51 PM

Well, damn.

Posted by: Mamamontezz on September 4, 2004 04:04 PM

Chablis-- piffel. You're reading WAY too much into my comments.

P.S. Get over the hyperventilating thing--it's lame, and it's old bait. Don't work.

P.P.S. The Tammy Wynette stereotype (er, generalization) is universal. Southerners don't own her and real Southerners don't care to.

You're still here, aren't you? Seems to work pretty well if you ask me.
I, however, have grown weary of you. You are dismissed.

Posted by: Chablis on September 5, 2004 08:49 AM

Nah, I dismissed you first. You just didn't have the wit to see it.
