What, no hero tag? Although the ones to children under 10 are a bit harsh, hilarious, but still harsh.

Tony Hawk is a fag. He needs to get a real job.
 
2008-04-20 08:39:27 PM
At least he's not a criminal.

You have to be quite a douche to post your replies to emails that people send you, no matter how "mischievous" they may be.

I know the brits created the English language, but the way they spell manoeuvres hurts my American eyes.

Cody,
If there are any extra broads going - then I shall keep them to myself.

hey man ur a gr8 sk8r u real cool u know u da best eva i wanna b like u

paul


Paul,
I don't think you do want to be like me - because if you were like me, you'd be irritated by people who write sk8r instead of skater. It doesn't really save any time and it's ugly on the eye.

See you L8r

Douchebaggery, submitter? My thoughts? Genius. Pure, snarky genius

There's a sign by where I live advertising 'stump grinding'. I can only assume it's some type of amputee sexual act.

This is like when Maddox makes fun of kids' drawings.

Both provide me with amusement.

Re sending you a new deck. What kind of deck do you want. Teak or mahogany?

This is not as disappointing for me as you might think.

Oh geez, this guy is my hero. At the very least he is doing his part to combat idiocy.

Why is it that 9 out of 10 of the people who emailed him can't spell even a little bit?

Sigh.

Had me laughing hard though.

It's surprising how many of them say, "You're my biggest fan". It's like a common malfunction in an entire generation or at least those who have sk8brding brain damage. I smell a research grant followed by a study followed by scare headlines in there somewhere.

Tony Hawks wrote a very funny book called "Round Ireland with a Fridge". It's a true story about how he (Tony) gets drunk and makes a bet for 100 pounds that he can hitchhike around Ireland with a fridge, and the book is about his travels and how he becomes a celebrity in Ireland as a result.

Greetings,

I'm an author and comedian living in a once great Britain who gets his jollies penning witty, and I fear half-witty, responses to adolescent American skateboarders, like you. Regards, Tony

Tony dude,

Fark off and die, dude.

Thresher: -1 subby. I have met Mr.Douche and this man is no Douche. Mr. British guy, you sir are of top wit. Keep up the spirited work.

yeah im regretting calling him a douche. I was trying to play into the stereotype that all brits are douches (Which isn't true) so i guess thats a massive fail by me. Funny stuff though
 
2008-04-20 08:58:41 PM
Hilarious.
Sorry, but people who type like that do need to be spoken down to. Especially since they show no initiative in communicating properly whatsoever. It's not even due to lack of intelligence in many cases, just pure unadulterated laziness. If you make excuses for them, you will have an entire generation of people incapable of functioning in a real work environment. Personally when I get responses with any form of disjointed net verbiage, they go right into the ignore bin.
 
2008-04-20 08:59:52 PM
Qishi: You have to be quite a douche to post your replies to emails that people send you, no matter how "mischievous" they may be.

Then again, you have to be a real dumbfark to confuse this guy with a much younger American skateboarder, so if you do you probably deserve all the abuse you get. As do people who think this isnt funny, I mean did you read the emails? Much Hilarity...

Guts:

It is a sad fact of life that these days the bar is set so low that if you can put together a coherent sentence you already have a leg up, and if you can use words with more than three syllables, preferably in the correct context, you already have a better chance than probably 75% of the population of making something of yourself past a fry cook.

The kind of people that this guy is responding to are the next wave of employees. Which is good for me, because that's less competition. The problem is, they're also the next wave of bosses.
 
2008-04-20 09:01:57 PM
man responds to people who email him (unsolicited) in the same fashion that Farkers respond to each other every day, all day, all the time. Farkers declare him a douche.

Lots of Farkers need to get a grip.
 
2008-04-20 09:02:01 PM
That book is fookin' hi-larious. Well worth the breathtaking cover price I paid whilst in the UK.
 
2008-04-20 09:02:21 PM
he is also famous for 'stutter rap', the magic sequel book 'playing the moldavians at tennis', being on 'grumpy old men', and generally being an all round hoopy frood.
 
2008-04-20 09:05:26 PM
Funk Brothers: Tony Hawk is a fag. He needs to get a real job.

So he's a fag because he makes a ton more money than you for nothing? I'd say that not only is he a hell of a lot smarter than you, but maybe (and this is a huge maybe) a lot more mature too.
 
2008-04-20 09:06:15 PM
Funny on so many levels. My side hurts now.
 
2008-04-20 09:06:48 PM
I don't blame him for his responses, of which they're fantastic. If it was another person then maybe they'd be much ruder in their responses, especially if you get an avalanche of emails when people assume he must be the skater Tony Hawk (lacking the 's').

Anyway, this reminds me of a similar situation with my friends website that he set up when we were at uni... the site being www.mi6.co.uk which involved him getting quite a lot of would be job applications (with full CVs/Resumes) of people wanting to be spies, even though the site stated that they were in no way affiliated or connected to the real MI6 (this was before it turned into the Bond fansite). He forwarded them onto the real MI6 where they no doubt filed under the bin labelled 'morans' (spelling intentional). The other thing was that most of the applicants came from the US :-)

Doris,
If you really want to be just like me when you're older you'll need to undergo considerable surgery.

Better than Round ireland with a fridge is his second book Playing the moldovans at tennis...I lol'ed an awful lot reading that...And if you have spent any amount of time in Eastern Europe it is an absolute must
