Westboro Baptist Church member David Phelps was being interviewed in a mobile studio when a 35-stone man, who was wearing no clothes, suddenly burst out of a loo to confront him.

Mobile studio?  It was a piece of shiat tiny RV with some guy holding a camcorder or filming it with an iPhone.

LEVIATHAN!  LOL

Well done.

In his "Bill on Capitol Hill" rap, he looks like Weird Al in I'm Fat.

That being said, I'm glad he nakedly chased a Phelps clan member out of a trailer.

Until this day, I thought I was good enough to make it as a career journeyman in the troll leagues. I thought, maybe I'm not a superstar, maybe I'm not going to grab all the headlines and bust anyone's salary cap, but I thought, at least, you know, I was there. i was in the big game. I was somebody that could call himself a man among men. Maybe I'd work it a few more years and then pass on what I could to the newbs. from career all-arounder to coach to maybe a cushy chair on the office for my twilight years, shooting the bull, making the calls, being generally wise and endearing and still in the game. I thought i'd always have some juice.

But I didn't know what the possibilities were. Now I see what heights can be reached, what real talent can do. I didn't know what kind of beauty truly existed for us, the few, the proud, the elite. Now i can see what true talent means. Mine eyes were shut, until now, just now. I thought I was good enough, but i am nothing before this man. I am small, and ashamed.

Now, I am ashamed.

God bless you, Billy the Fridge, for showing me just how small I really am. May you continue to garner teh lulz until you can no longer astonish us; long may your work enrage. I am an ant compared to thee, my sweet hero, my idol, my man-mountain.

2013-03-28 09:43:30 PM
Some time ago I found out the Phelps compound has been photographed on google street view. I looked at it on there from a bunch of different angles, and all I could think of was, "That looks like it would burn pretty easily. Some enterprising individual with some Molotov cocktails could really take care of this problem." Just sayin'.

As amusing as it Is, the problem is that it's the wrong approach to the Phelps.  They're the ultimate attention whores.  It's their oxygen.  And not just in the seeking lawsuits sort of way.  I mean they fact that we despise them in their eyes validates them.  They live for this coverage.  It makes them feel like martyrs fighting against the heathens.  The best thing to do is ignore them until they fade away.

trmpt99: No, it's staged because that isn't David Phelps.


Aaahh. Still, I don't think that's what some people meant upthread.

It's still not "staged" in that case.

Fake, skit, short, whatever, even fraud because it's put forth as factual.

Staged is something else imo, where a present member of the film is not in on the joke.(hence all the "of course it's staged" replies)

Sigh.  As much as the idea of this type of "revenge" makes me want to laugh, in the end it only fuels their hatred and prolongs their 15 minutes of shame.  Just ignore the ignorant, brainwashed, mental defectives.  Do not give them any more fuel for their bonfire of hatred.

To the idiot press,

Stop paying attention to these morons and they'll have nothing to do. You've seen WBC's idiotic sideshow and it never changes and if you'd stop interviewing them and showing up at whatevers they "protest," they'd have no reason to continue and would die off and realize they have absolutely no life beyond this to go back to.

Do everyone a favor and publish their names/photos/addresses so no sane person will ever give them the time of day or a job and ignore them.

Thanks,
Everybody

MrEricSir: Was worried for a second it might be Nathan Phelps.


I followed your link, then followed a link from there and just finished reading an 8 page article on his crazy sister. And now I need a shower. Ugh.

That's the danger of clicking Wikipedia links. First you read one article, then another, and another, and another...

Pretty soon you're editing an article on Star Trek: TNG and donating money to Jimmy Whales.

The "Ass-inine" tag would've been more appropriate.

Very much.

Did a fat bastard sit on a Phelps? I'd say the question of verisimilitude is academic at best, you homers.

Not academic.  I know the actor.  (I randomly clicked on the fark link and saw a familiar face.  At first, I thought he was doing the interview.  Then I saw him speak, and realized he was playing the role.)

Nobody mentioned the part at the end of the article where the 30 year old is planning to crucify himself to "honor Christ'?

As an artist, I understand where you're coming from.  But I don't want people to get their hopes up.  I'm a Topekan. I see the WBC on a weekly, if not daily, basis.  As much as I wish something like this would happen, it sadly hasn't.  My dear friend took one for the team by playing the part of a "Phelps" and suffering under the rather large burden that brought.  (Pun intended...)

there's suffering for your craft, and there's having a three foot wide stripe of butt stank smashed on to your body...wow.  mad props.

You and me at least.  The most pathetic part is that it all appears to be a guerrilla marketing campaign for a crappy website, Leviathan and all.

It's just a commercial for their crucifixion. Nothing real about it.

Egalitarian: In his "Bill on Capitol Hill" rap, he looks like Weird Al in I'm Fat.

That being said, I'm glad he nakedly chased a Phelps clan member out of a trailer.



That song is awesome!

FTFA:  An actor posing as the son of Fred who does not exist was angrily commenting on a forthcoming live crucifixion, which U.S.-based TV station Battlecam intends to broadcast on Easter Sunday.

/sheesh. If you want to know who the REAL person getting trolled here is, just go look in the mirror.

Can't find the bigger one. I'll keep looking. I might have the original on the computer I captioned it on. It's been a few years since i did that, so odds are not real good. It might take a bit, though.

That was not there initially.  It was purported as actual news.

As the content goes, that they were trolling a W. Baptist member, it was believable.  Any "obvious" part was cluing the audience in that they were setting up the W. Baptist guy, and as that is how they do sound, he was convincing.

It only got revealed here because a few people knew other facts and shared them.  It's like me saying "I like Pizza" or "I just took a big shiat."  Yeah, I FOOLED you, even though there was no reasonable thing to doubt.  No, I didn't fool or troll you, I told a simple lie that may as well be true for all that it matters or differs from reality.

For all the "let's ignore the bastards" folks, I'd like to ask y'all why they stepped their shiat up to picketing military funerals.

It's because they were already getting ignored only picketing their first target.

Yeah, y'all have a valid point and it's cool.

However I'd also like to ask why the heck the rest of us can't have some lulz at their expense with stunts like this?

Moar pranks to drain their WAAHH LAWSUIT coffers dry and send every judge in the land off in gales of laughter would be swell.

Kittypie070: lulz at their expense with stunts like this


It would maybe be a good idea to read the whole thread.

It wasn't a stunt/practical joke.  It was just bad sketch "comedy" and Daily Fail put it out as truth.

The only way it would be lulz-worthy is if it actually happened.  It was believable only because they're so easy to impersonate, what with them being bat shiat crazy.  If it had been delivered for what it actually was, I could appreciate the humor in the impersonation and found it deserving a "meh, they got it right", but as it stands I just find it annoying and shoddy.

Just thought I'd try to get the point across again because not reading the thread, well, it's grown quite common.  I bit at first as well, though I was slow about it and many posts were made while I typed.

8shrugs*

Still wish it were true.

Tosh.0 did an interview with a couple of these guys(WBC), kinda gave them a hard time.  Even if you don't like him I'd check it out.
