I can not disagree with that

Is there a word for something being both very dumb and also ingenious? I'm sure the Germans have something. They love that shiat. Like, no one needed a theory as to who Pepe Sylvia was, but once you hear it, it just works.

I would also guess that's the most posted IASIP meme with Charlie at the conspiracy wall.

Now what about Carol in HR?

I knew it wasn't true because Mac said ALL THESE PEOPLE are not getting their mail. I do like how Charlie and the producer guy were willing to give it props as a better idea.

Forget for a moment that this is ancient "news", do you lot write the entire state out when you address envelopes? No? Oh, so it's bullshiat? Do, please, go on to tell me all about how Ferris is Cameron's Tyler Durden, and James Bond is a codename. It's super interesting.

Hate to rain on the parade, but this isn't a new theory. I first read about the Pepe Silvia = Pennsylvania theory at least 2 years ago. About the same time that I read comments from the show's writers saying that wasn't their intent, and that Pepe actually was supposed to be a real person (as Mac noted).

I've only just seen the first episode during 2020 when I had nothing else to watch but I have a question for you fans. How did the pilot never get scrubbed from media streaming services? I'm not easily offended but it just seemed in poor taste for the times - especially considering the other things that were getting deleted or facing outrage.

"Although this conspiracy-related conspiracy is far from a new phenomenon, with fans first speculating that Pepe Silvia could actually be the northeastern state on  It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia fan forums more than a decade ago, this theory went viral on the show's subreddit once again earlier this month, drawing the mysterious worker's existence into question once again."

I'm trying to remember the last time a fan theory made me do more than just go, "Well THAT'S a stretch." It was apparently before this one.

Cracked.com well it is this website which was really funny about 12 years ago and then at one point about 6 years ago it was both funny and did some good journalism then the guy who owned turned into a jerk and not sure if that is when Cracked started flailing. But it went really down hill when the owner started responding to fan complaints with 'Here I'll give you back the zero dollars you paid for this article' and he hated the user comment section which was one of the best parts.
Then a bunch of creators were fired or left, Cracked After Hours I miss you guys.
But the resident crack head(dude literally wrote about his real crack addiction) stayed and he was basically either Armond White who just took the unpopular opinion for attention or he was a proto-Alt Right/QAnon. I tend to believe the latter because he literally write several articles where he mentioned the banning of DDT as stupid tree hugger BS.
But even in its heyday there was cracks(see what I did there) in the base
Like there demand that everything have citation, but like a high school level term paper all sources were treated the same, so you had people writting articles with obvious political agendas.
The low light was one of their numerous, LOL environmentalists are wrong there is no need to worry about Climate Change or pollution articles that cited a peer reviewed paper. How ever the peer reviewed journal was an online journal where you paid to have your article posted. Yeah that seems totally legit and not a vanity press or a place for paid propaganda.

Or could be their BSAB stance. Especially circa 2016 when the real concern facing America wasn't Trump might become an authoritarian dictator, no America had to be on guard for the inevitable Left Wing populist response to Trump who would totally be Hitler but we need to call down on calling Trump Hitler

And they once posted a Pro Scientology article which was scrubbed completely from the website within twelve hours.

Here's my fan theory:
Always Sunny in Philadelphia is set within the Sea of Holes in Yellow Submarine, and the entire storyline is an hallucination whilst traversing said holes. Pepe Sylvia is really the Nowhere Man using fake ID to elude the Blue Meanies

We all live in that Yellow Submarine, where the Spice flows like a river to the ocean.

With Charlie's learning disability, it's not hard to see how he glanced at that and thought he knew what it said.

You seem to be confused on a few points. The "resident crack head" was actually fired before the purge and in addition to writing about DDT, he also wrote about Trump literally being Hitler. He also wrote how Ace of Bass were Nazis.

So they fired him for writing about Trump in a critical way?

And when did that happen, here is an article from Adam Tod Brown published on April 13 2020

They fired him for using company resources to further his brand outside of the company.

Oh, and that's not an article from ATB. It's a guest spot on Cracked's podcast, run by Alex Schmidt, and the text blurb specifically omits any mention of Adam being a former editor. I'd assume it was recorded around the time the Chief head of Cracked left to go ruin the howstuffworks brand and there wasn't so much bad blood splattered around. As for a timeline, ATB just wrote something about leaving a year before the Crackedpocalypse on Twitter a couple days ago. Apparently some new business scandal went down recently because, well Cracked is gonna Cracked, and he came out from the wilderness to jab at them with another spear.

Err, he wrote it a month ago. June, July, they're the same picture.
 
2021-07-20 1:28:44 PM  
Adam's not proto-Qanon. If anything he was the proto-dirtbag left, which is a thing, I'm now told never existed. Like Pepe Silvia.
