This is good. I have been hoping that this gentleman would do well with the good will that had been cast his way, and I hope that he keeps up the good work.
I'm going to go buy some Kraft Macaroni and Cheese tomorrow.

Also, best wishes for that dude. Glad he's still trying and has help that few could hope for.

It's splendid that this has actually worked out for him. Sometimes the internet is more than just a refuge for splinter groups of the KKK.
 
2012-01-16 12:02:57 AM  
He's doing well for being just a head in a freezer.

Still think he's feel better if his head remained attached to his body.

You know he'll never hit .300 again, yes?

So stop fooling yourself.

This is still a great story.

It's stories like this that represent the best from Christianity; where you can see how his faith gives him the strength to overcome his life on the street. Provides a nice counterbalance to the "Atheist girl receives death threats from angry Christians" stories.

I'd suppose it's easier now that he's employed and back on his feet for the most part.

Funny you mention him. Right after the Golden Globes ended, the first commercial that played was precisely Kraft's Homestyle Macaroni & Cheese voiced by Williams.

So I come to FARK and he's in the front page?

Talk about cross-promotion. This Google thing has advertising figure out.

I love the way the second he has a little cash he already has a girlfriend.
It reminds me of these hot shot ceos that second they get sent to jail for corruption the wife or girlfriend is long gone.

Okay, it's been a FULL YEAR since he made it. Why wouldn't he get a girlfriend in twelve months? Just because you can't doesn't mean anything.

You know what would be a fantastic way for him to celebrate his good fortune? With a big pipe full of crack! Makes a great time even greater.

2012-01-16 12:30:01 AM  
Meh. I'd feel better about it if he was doing OK living alone in a small apartment working some service job while someone else who kept it together but never got a break was finally rewarded. A lot of more deserving suckers are going paycheck to paycheck, hand to mouth without the spacious house and sobriety coach/girlfriend and never missing a child support check.

As a drug user myself, that's exactly what I imagine is probably going through his head. "Ahh everything's just great now, it's like a dream come true...something just feels missing though, let's kick it up a notch".

When Tribbet said he was going clean, that just meant he was switching to Lysol.

Phuque no!

I over-boiled my goats milk and cilantro mirepoix yesterday while prepping my bourguignon for Tuesday's dinner party, and am soaking my burners tomorrow. Kroger's is down the street, and I like mac and cheese. If I wind up making a sandwich instead, I'll add that Kraft Macaroni and Cheese to the $8 food-bank bag that I build every time I go there.

Weep, biatch. Because I'll do the work for you, too.

you may be right, i don't know and I'm not gonna argue about it, it's not like I research Gingrich, who I remember 15 years ago like it was yesterday when I was a teenager being shamed under threat of impeachment to drop his seat as speaker of the house for ethics violations.

Something, clearly, we all look for in our presidential candidates.

Also his good, catholic values, which is why he's on his 3rd wife. jesus had 3 wives too didn't he?

/i've read an awful lot of stuff online claiming both of them divorced cancerous wives, but I don't know, personally, and I don't have the time or inclination to write either of them letters asking 'is it true one of your previous wives were cancerous?'
//that's not why I'm refusing to vote for him anyway
///I'm not voting for him because he's an obese, hypocritical, disgusting pig
//neither of them are on their 1st wives, which should be an automatic disqualifyer for president of this christian nation

Some of you people truly suck. I'm sure if life handed you a golden ticket, you would surely deny yourself the opportunity because of the long list of people who deserve it more than you for never making a stupid choice in their life. Good for Ted, I say. He is thankful for every day, while the rest of you still find things to biatch about 5 minutes after waking up.

It's the way his teeth are formed. As you know, voice is made by air passing through the throat/teeth/lips/tongue.
His teeth are formed in such a way that a sliver of air still is present when it shouldn't be, causing the minor lisping.

It's probably all those drugs and bad years on the street. When I saw him the first time he had hideous teeth, very dirty.
