Chinese Checker


If you've never been to 27b/6, you're seriously missing out on one of those reasons the internet was invented. David Thorne uses his substantial wit to playfully unleash a hundred gallon drum of misanthropy all over anyone unlucky enough to irritate him (or, because it's Tuesday).

He posted the above image on Twitter yesterday (click it to enlarge).

His comment: "Call me a cynic but I still have my doubts that John is emailing me from Canada."

Have you read the disclaimers? Priceless...

Sample text "I heard somewhere that there is a higher percentage of abuse in low income families so buy this book or I will beat my child"

Hah!
Well, yopu have to admire them for trying. 'High brand of many claps'. 'Snowy lands with wind and ice and animals' - damn, it's almost poetry!

As a resident of the Canadian arctic, I can report that we do indeed have snowy lands with wind and ice and animals. But I share his doubts that this person is one of my countryment.

Came across this guy about a year ago. He just kills me. This was the original link that turned me on to his site. Enjoy.

I love David Thorne. His 'obviously foggot' is a must read.

David Thorne is great! Beverages still spurt from my nostrils when I recall "Missing Missy."

He's also an asshole in real life. There were some problems with some orders for his books and instead of telling people "sorry please be patient" or refunding the money he ignored them for several months and just kept the money. Then when they called him out for it on Reddit he proceeded to try to delete critical comments, set up fake accounts to defend himself, etc, instead of just saying "my bad, here's an autographed copy for your trouble" or some other type of damage control.

That aside the "foggot" thing is pretty funny.
