Yeah, okay, this idea might work out a bit better than Camp Threat's preliminary plans to introduce live racoons into the city for laughs.

We had asshat racoons last year after the burn during our decompression in Tahoe. They ripped open the bags of garbage we had outside on the trailer looking for food, and then peed all over them.

I'm sure if it was done again 99% would fall upon fresh eyes and delight would be had by both the coons and the victoms :mrgreen:

OOooh I figured out how I was an Asshat this year!
I signed up to participate in the Journey Home project and didn't even look up the time or place where we were all supposed to meet.
FUCK YEAH, ASSHATTINESS

(Please don't ever take my advice. Instead please ask them nicely to chew and eat the paint ball. If they balk just get all Temple Shushy and be all "SHHHHHHHHHHH, PLEASE EAT THE PAINT BALL, I LOVE YOU" until they relent. It's ok. They're food-grade. Be sure to get a food permit. Also wash your hands.)

Gee piehole, that's all good, but still not asshatty enough, but you're getting close!! Maybe you're too nice to be an asshat!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I must do this. :shock:

But it's gotta be a really big, fluffy raccoon suit with LED eyes, so as to at least get a laugh before being soundly beaten.

EXACTLY. Doesn't matter if something has been done! It's almost kinda sweet if humans the world over find the same things timelessly funny. We can't get hung up on precedence . . . (and if you have tips, share!) :lol:

What's got your dander up? I'm a "top asshat" because I disagreed with a member of Gate being called a "stupid bitch" and defended her?

Ah....the entitled, fragile burner rears it's ugly stereotype.


I didn't call anyone a bitch. I called you a douche. And thank you for proving your douchiness by falsely accusing me of calling someone a bitch. Douche.

With all respect to Savannah, and not trying to stir this pot, but I nominate this post for the 2013 version of the "match the quote to the eplaya'n" meet-n-greet game. :lol:

It is kinda funny. :lol: No argument.

They've each hopefully had their say now. Or can take it to message. I just don't want to have to start editing epithets out. I hate that. So boring. So fun-deadening. And look at how hard it would have been to keep the post! So, to hell with it, this time.
