You know, subby, I don't know if you were aiming for it, but that's actually a very biting analogy. I mean, think about it. Duck Duck Goose is a game of intense strategy and competition, a survivalist simulation in which one individual, the "goose," must carefully select his opponent, tag him as "it," and then flee without being tagged himself. If he succeeds, his opponent is vanquished and becomes himself the goose. If he loses, his goosedom continues. And that is the essence of the game, its core. Can the goose become a duck? And now, here, we have Obama, the goose. TAG, he yells at his hand-picked opponent, and he scampers away, and his opponent springs to his feet and chases him and gets closer and closer and...SAFE. Obama slides into the empty spot. But then, as the rest of the circle glares at him with stony eyes, Obama realizes that it doesn't matter what he's done. It doesn't matter that he's won. He looks up with sad eyes at his opponent -- the opponent that he's so meaningless vanquished -- and shuffles to his feet. His opponent sits back down. And Obama begins again -- duck, duck, duck.... But this time, when he tags his replacement goose, the goose only looks up at him and shakes his head. "I don't feel like running right now," he says. And Obama's shoulders hunch. Again he circles. Duck. Duck. Duck. But what point would there ever be in saying goose again? No point, none at all. And slowly it begins to dawn on him, how his presidency looks to the world. It makes me sad.

Is Pocket Ninja the Farklib king? Why are all the Farklibs swinging from his nuts?

See, the thing is, I think Obama would/does likely find this amusing. He seems to be capable of actual self-deprecating humor, and is able to be, well, goofy when necessary. (Like him playing with that kid in the spiderman costume).

I think Romney would be FURIOUS if someone did this to him.

I tend to just skip over them. They feel forced.

And if Obama had known, I have a feeling he would have taken the opportunity to do a really good Troll in Chief move, like unscrew all the bolts on the steps, so at exactly the right moment, all the women got dumped on their butts, legs in the air, and there's Obama, smiling at you, while 30 pairs of college-aged legs are up in the air around him.

/okay, that got both funnier and creepier as I went. . .

It's a little played at this point, but I do appreciate the craftsmanship.

Wow, the headline of the actual article is farking idiotic.

At least it was an approved meme:

As long as they weren't jungle bunny ears, I'm OK with this.

Those aren't bunny ears

Looks like subby doesn't understand that uconn tradition.

How's that twelve-day-old account treating you, Susie?

Send in the drones. Who's the bunny now biatch?????

Funfact: "Bunny-ears" dates back to the middle ages when husbands were cheated on, were called cuckolded. Cuckolded men according to wive's tales grew horns. Horned cuckolded men were depicted in paintings and plays. Soon people would do the cuckold horns behind a guy's back as a tease. The original meaning became lost and have transformed into "bunny-ears."

Watching you attempt to troll is like watching a little fawn taking its first tentative steps.  All wobbly and uncertain, but damn it if you aren't trying in every single thread.  I believe in you.

This is yet another example as to why you are highlighted green. Good form as always.

Tomorrow: conservative outrage at the "disrespect" being shown to the President. Oh, who am I kidding. They would piss and moan if it was Romney in the same situation, but not Fartbongo.

I couldn't get into it.

It insists upon itself.

Can someone explain to me how gooses (goosi?) would have rabbit ears?

Aristocles: Is Pocket Ninja the Farklib king? Why are all the Farklibs swinging from his nuts?


Because he's not lying. You know, lying? That thing where someone pretends to be something that he's not? This is different from "trolling," where someone interjects himself into a thread and pretends there's a radical difference between someone who claims to have a PhD in Religious History, whereas he actually has a PhD in the history of religions; or where someone derails a debate about security measures at US foreign offices by hammering on the distinction between a terrorist attack and an attack by terrorists.

But then again, the other reason we love Pocket Ninja is he doesn't hide behind a two-week old alt and then run away when someone calls him on it. What is your excuse? Is the sound of cartridges hitting the floor too loud for your ears?
