  1. Awesome!!! That's what I'm talking about. Noticing silliness is not a crime. To me, those shorts are a much better example of "WTF were they thinking when they designed those?" than that mask was. Like, how did those shorts ever get okayed for production? (Maybe the red fire hydrant and dog from Signals would have been better? Hmm, maybe not...) The Starman on the mask is much smaller and not everyone is going to think there's an inappropriate juxtaposition there. There's absolutely nothing wrong with silliness and sarcasm, or pointing it out when others use it. I wasn't crazy about your original mask comment either, mainly because the person wearing the mask was someone who was super excited about Rush re-tweeting her picture, and then you come in and put a big damper on it ("Uhhhh I really didn't want to say anything....but..."). Again, it was the way you went after the ones who called you out. I didn't step in until you had a few exchanges with them -- there was enough material from you at that point to establish a certain pattern of "dickishness" in your responses, like you had all these smartass belittling comments lined up and ready to go, and you were so happy to be able to fire them all off to show how bitingly clever you are. It got old real quick. You have over 1,100 posts and this is the first time someone's had a problem with you, so this doesn't need to turn into an ongoing thing. It happened, the original topic is back to doing it's original topic thing, so in the end, no big deal. The shorts are hilarious obviously but you're missing the whole point of comedy as a skill and a profession. The funniness of those Hemi shorts is easily recognizable to everyone but if all the silliness in the world was just as easily recognizable there wouldn't be a need for stand up comics, comedy writers, or humorists. The Starman mask blowjob thing is not as easily noticeable but the juxtaposition is definitely there. You don't like the joke and that's cool. Not everyone likes the same jokes. Comedy might be the most subjective art-form there is. It's true that not everything goes when posting to a message board and it's up to every member to use discretion but what a boring board it would be if we all walked around on eggshells trying not to offend the most offendable among us. And some of these people are just dying to be offended. While there are those who might want a completely safe board, not everyone does. So situations like these will inevitably pop up from time to time and they're going to have to be worked out one way or another. But they should be teachable moments for ALL of us, not just the perceived offender. It boils down to this: Some got the joke. Some didn't. No one thought it was funny apparently but that's beside the point. The initial two who didn't seem to get it was a joke decided to start spitting out holy water in my direction rather than exercise some restraint and simply say they felt the joke was iffy in a thread like this (not necessarily so, imo) and ask me to explain what is up with it. I'll happily accept reasonable, calm-headed criticism. But expect a debate if I think you're wrong about it. You're still using terms like dickishness, smartass, belittling comments, etc, in regards to what I posted while giving a free pass to the finger wagging moralists, pile-on crowd, and flame fanners all of whom engaged me FIRST either directly or indirectly. You obviously have a biased take on what went down here and have no interest in objectively seeing both sides of the story. Btw, how did I respond to them? With roast style jokes so mild and silly they might as well have been hugs by internet insult standards. And I had nothing "lined up and ready to go." I'm just a decent ad-libber, that's all. These style of burns were meant to disarm the situation, and guess what, they did for the most part. Until you decided to weigh-in again, that is. My advice to anyone who gets into a blow up situation like this: never apologize IF an apology is not warranted whether or not one person or a whole mob is demanding one from you. If you do, you are handing over all your power to the ones who are saying you've violated some, often arbitrary, moral or behavioral convention. Falsely prostrating yourself before a community in order to just-make-it-all-go-away is not a good look for anyone and it's definitely not worth it in the long run. If you think you're right, stand your ground. Also, don't demand apologies from your opponents even if they really are in the wrong. It's petty to expect someone to do. Apologies should be voluntary. These things are best worked out through reasoned discussion and hopefully everyone will have a better understanding of each other when it's all over.
  2. Can you give me a few more of these? I'm going for the complete set. I'm planning on making a daily affirmation calendar out of them. Some of the more life affirming ones will go on Christmas cards. I'll try; clearly there's no one as needy when it comes to affirmation as you (an unusual trait for a "free thinker", to be sure, though maybe not so much for a self-proclaimed one). You appear to need that even more than an ironclad shield from criticism (an unusual trait for an adult, regardless of their status as an actual or self-proclaimed "free thinker"). lol.
  3. There is nothing wrong with the picture. If someone wants to interpret it in a sexual way, then that is THEIR decision and THEIR problem. Good lord will you shut up. lol. Good lord if you didn't want to say anything then you shouldn't have said anything :lol: Wow. Clever. Someone had his Ovaltine this morning. If I hadn't said anything I wouldn't know who wears the halos around here. Btw, can you turn yours down a notch. It's blinding the f**k out of me. Hi Three Eyes, as a board admin, I believe I can offer a different perspective concerning your posts in this thread: You're acting like a dick. Maybe you can turn THAT down a notch? Actually, all the way down to zero would work. Wait what?!?! iii is just being sarcastic.Big part of humor you see. Everyone keep calm. Thanks man. You are correct, sir. I'm weirded out by all the swift and virulent criticism over the initial comment. It was just meant to be a humorous if naughty observation told in social justice speak. Makes me wonder if some of this has been building up over time. I might be too much of a wise-ass for some here. A thread disrupter. An attention [family board]. That's not too far off actually. lol. You can't hear a person's tone of voice on the internet. Which makes sarcasm hard to detect sometimes. But like you did right here, I always try and remember to put an "lol" at the end to indicate that the comment is supposed to be humorous. thats the kicker. he put an Lol in the the post that started this shit show. secondly he has apologized at least once. the funny thing is how some guys got bent out of shape, while the OP basically let it go. it may or may not have been funny but i dont think his intent was to offend or belittle anyone. its time for everyone to put their "little star men" away and end this pissing match. Agreed! I've kept quiet from commenting on here because although I have kind of mellowed on here lately, I was and I guess I could still be the Sleeping White Dragon in a China Shop. LOL!! See...... LOL!!! It's just a joke. For almost 14 years their has always been a "Witch Hunt" on here for my RUSHHEAD!!! LOL!!!!! See! Another LOL! This means that I am having fun and making fun of myself. There are a lot of uptight people on here Three Eyes. To be honest I couldn't even figure this whole puzzle out and although not the brightest "Starman" in the sky, I can shine very brightly. LOL! See? Another LOL. I've known 73 for almost 14 years, and I don't have to suck his ass believe me. I know he is fair and a patient ADMIN. TRUST ME!!! LOL! My "Little Starman" is very happy at the moment. I just opened up my "Permanent Waves" Deluxe Box Set. It's wonderful!!!! The world and the country are falling apart right now. I think things will change and actually get better. Let's focus on THE REALITY OF "OUR" SURROUNDINGS!!! Love Forever, FISHBONE!!!!!! Tell me about it! Some of the butts around here are so clenched they could be used... as industrial clamps. to teach isometrics to navy seals. to lift grand pianos up the sides of tall buildings. to help friends move. as construction site sandblasters. as t-shirt canons. and many other industrial and home applications too numerous to mention.

Just popping in to address this. I didn't apologize but I did acknowledge that the comment could have been written in a way that left little doubt I wasn't being serious or directing it toward the OP specifically. Thanks for chiming in with these reasonable thoughts though. i sometimes apologize for things i dont feel like i have to. its just easier that way.......... Capitulation isn't appropriate in this situation.
  6. ^^^ i construed this as an apology of sorts Wow this is interesting. No that was another joke and apparently another misfire. If you feel like it, take another look at it and look at where the little upward arrows are pointing.

  8. Can't respond to any of the new posts at the moment. I'm kind of surprised as I thought this thing had been more or less resolved.

But like you did right here, I always try and remember to put an "lol" at the end to indicate that the comment is supposed to be humorous. Well I'm glad you brought that up. I don't know for sure but I feel the premise along with the faux social justice speak make it fairly obvious it's a joke. And would anyone ever really call a penis a "little Starman" is a serious way? To also suggest someone be canceled over this is absolutely ludicrous. Hell, the person on Rush's team who's responsible for this beautiful juxtaposition blooper deserves a raise. The photo I included was meant to represent a hysterical sjw type. That is in effect the "lol" here. (Yes, I know social justice is a polarizing topic.) Of course, all this assumes most are up on cancel culture and understand what the woman in the photo represents. Kind of interesting the way this all played out. Everyone has gone weird. It happens here every few months. Funny how it’s you that’s at fault not those with the egregious lack of humour coupled with their entitled judgementalism. If the Mod says you were serious or wrong to defend yourself then it must be true... Thanks man. :sundog:

It wasn't so much Three Eyes' original response about the OP's mask that prompted me to say that, it was how he responded to the other people who called him out. I wrote up something pretty blistering but you don't deserve that. However if you or anyone else ever feels I've crossed the line with some silly joke I've made just deal with me in a way you'd want to be dealt with yourself.
  13. The member. haha. Fine but you're going to need a shipping container to check laughedatbytime's ego.

  15. I thought you were joking. There actually is a split topic thread. :hail: Best not to go there. Tis a silly place. No they should. It's a good lesson in how not to rush to judgement and how not to treat a fellow forum member. I have faith you can do better TRF.
