"these guys are sycophants"
What I can't tolerate is people who believe they stand for intellect and higher-order thinking as they exhibit supreme ignorance. You know nothing about me except that I found that one quote funny and that equips you to assess me as some pathetic flatterer?
You found it ought to inspire "only... a sly grin" and only if "you were stoned off your face". That's not for you to decide for the entire universe of sentient beings. You're arrogant to believe that your tastes somehow set the standard for the intellectual level this or any humor achieves.
I don't care who posted the remark ("I read that movie hates homos.") that set me off--it was funny regardless of the messenger. More importantly, if you insulted me using Lynch's name, I'd be equally disgusted with your presumptuous and virtually unresearched evaluation. Your assumption that anyone who finds anything funny in Lynch's posts must somehow be licking his backside is not only false, it's self-serving and small-minded. The only time I've ever laughed at ANP was when I read what inspired it. I don't have such a developed gift of simplicity that I can shape my sense of humor around what gets typed on this board in red letters. And to hell with you for even suggesting it.
: Don't sell yourself short my friend, the barrels of "laughs" keep coming (a whole page full that was longer than the story itself -- you must feel pleased). But honestly, why aren't you scared that these people have picked up one line and keep repeating it over and over, Fight Club style, laughing endless at something, which even if you were stoned off your face, should only bring a sly grin?
: I don't want that Lynch ego to swell... these guys are sycophants, and it appears they'll laugh and laugh at _anything_ you say. If my post was by under your name written in red there would be people saing "right on Lynch, you tell him!" whether it was funny or not. If this whole thing was reversed and *I* wrote that stupid anecdote out do you *honestly* believe I would have received a single reply... let alone pages of unfunny spin-off jokes.
: It was NOT that funny. You know it. I know it. THEY know it, but they won't admit it.
: Don't believe you're own hype (in 40 years you'd be like Chevy! :) SOMEONE needed to say something to level this shit out. I actually like Angry Naked Pat, but fuck ("did someone say "butt-fuck"?" - GLAAD) I don't wanna hear whiney posts followed by whiney-follower replies.
: Glad to see you kept your cool and gave me a royal kicking, I wouldn't have it any other way :)
: THAT'S the Lynch that makes me laugh.
