ABBO

Thought it was hilarious that they were quoting and linking to one of the very old posts on the Squackle Bulletin Board during 2007.  I don’t have those forums operational or even accessible anymore, but here’s a few choice quotes about Squackle itself from the above link.

Here’s the story behind it  – http://www.squackle.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=submit;action=display;num=1157705918  

Fuck me I laughed when I saw it…..

I think the golden rule is, if you see something on a place called Squackle that claims to be ‘THE FUNNIEST WEBSITE ON THE NET’, it’s probably not a good idea to post it on CaB. Especially, y’know, when it’s lazily slapped together bigoted shit. I don’t think even Kevin Bloody Wilson performs material that bad any more.

Expect it to appear on Squackle before elevenses.

Luckily, a new user to Squackle has voiced my thoughts for me on the site:

Quote from: “Cake”

WHAT A BUNCH OF UTTER RACIST CUNTS.

As far as I’m concerned, the quality (or lack thereof) of the mong is immaterial.  Abbo is a purely pejorative term and is going to stick in my (and most folks) craw as much as any of the equivalents.  Sorry, Sadness, linking to a thread where people are laughing at them for looking like monkeys isn’t much of a get-out.

A great reply:

Fuck you! Come here to crit the site, the owner of this site is cool this site is cool and the people who post here are cool. Where is your ultra cool site douchebag? If ya don’t like it then why are ya here?

Nobody tell him…

Srry dave but my cuz is black I hang with him every weekend and I got this fuck talkin about me being a racist.

If he’s not a racist, why does he only hang with him at weekends?!?  Eh?!  Eh?!

Well fuck you go home and eat yourself cake! It’s fucking humor cock face!

That is me.  I joined as soon as i could and put a few posts down around the forum. UNfortunately i told them that the site had no talent compared to B3ta or here.

 

“Hey Maestro” celebrating 10 years!

Hi this is J2K. In 2001 I made a thread on the GamePro.com forums entitled “Hey Maestro, I think we’re the only ones here!”. Somehow the thread ballooned up into thousands and thousands of posts long and is even intact on their forums today! Don’t believe me? Check this out:

“The original “Hey Maestro, I think we’re the only ones here” topic was started by a user named j2k as a random, late-night discussion and, for whatever unknown reason, took on a life of its own with thousands of replies. It became the unofficial “anything goes” topic, the thread for any and all random thoughts and conversations–something of a forum mascot. Due to server errors and whatnot, the thread has been restarted several times, most recently by a GamePro editor who wanted to see the tradition continue. Whatever the topic’s current count, you can add about 25,000 to it from the earlier editions. And that said, please don’t try to duplicate it–it’s one of a kind and we like it that way.”

If anyone out there is from the original GamePro forums and sees this, please comment!

On another note. You’ll be seeing a lot more content on this site from me in the near future so stay tuned!

A “Liberbal” and Her Constituency / Fun Links Section

Hello whoever is reading this.  I got an idea for a section and its called Fun Links.  In Fun Links I will post a link to something and why I think its funny or worthwhile for posting.

This Fun Link comes from A.J. Bray who is a “liberbal” disability blogger, writer, and fashionphile in a wheelchair.  Recently she got some hate mail from someone trying to add her as a friend on Facebook, and so she decided to post her response to her admirer on her blog.

Sometimes I’m glad that we have people who don’t know how to type.  They make up such wonderful words.

 

Ye Ald Bulletin Board

Courtesy of the “Wayback Machine” I’ve found the most current, browsable, version of the old Squackle Bulletin Board that I have many fond memories of.

If you’d like to take a look, here it is:

It makes me want to make another forum, but I don’t think anyone would even join it.  So maybe later.

Not all the forums and pages are viewable, it seems.  But oh well.  I do have all the posts stored away somewhere, but I don’t think I’ll be able to convert them into something more modern since its a few years old.

These are the links to all of the Google April Fools Day jokes.  They’re pretty funny.  If I’m missing one, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll add it to the list.
