You can get in the Australian newspaper for calling judges "stoopit assblankets" on MeFi. February 13, 2003 2:54 AM   Subscribe

Oh sweet jeebus. I have nobody but myself to blame. Enjoy.

The thread in question.

The fear of off-site publishing in "Mongolia or Afghanistan or Zimbabwe" is a little overstated, I suspect. As someone whose site sits on a server 11 hours ahead of his time zone, I can vouch for how annoying that is when you have to contact your webhost to fix a problem. I can't imagine a serious major publication running their server on the other side of the world just so they can snipe at the occasional Joe Gutnick.

First asshat, and now assblanket? What other unlucky garments will be the recipient of an ass- prefix?

those judges were called stoopit assblankets, and they remain, stoopit assblankets. now, did anyone contact you adam? what i'm wanting to know is, did the reporter have any clue whatsoever that adamgreenfield actually exists? because comments on metafilter and the presence of a "high-toned" blog allegedly written by you are certainly no verification that you are real. i simply can't wait for the fun that will ensue when some stoopit assblanket "mainstream media" wanker goes full tilt boogie to press with a story about someone/something which isn't real. oh, wait, THAT's been happening for decades. sorry.

Greenfield, whose website is higher toned, threw this taunt into MetaFilter, a US-centric online forum.

Have I not said we need to be more global and kiss ass more to the Brits and Aussies? "US-centric"... Who's the assblanket who wrote that, anyway?

Now whom can I call an assblanket to get myself mentioned in a major newspaper? Bush? Nah, that won't work, everyone's doing that anyway.

threw this taunt into MetaFilter,

Greenfield also paused to note that "your father was a hamster, and your mother smelled of elderberries." The justices had no comment.

While I like assteacozy, cozy ass tea seems to flow better.

"Hello dear, would you like some cozy ass tea? It's a fresh pot..."

Does the fact that adam's handle is maybe, ; ) , his name the reason they mentioned him?

i think "assscarf" has a certain terrible ring to it.

assmonkey has always been one of my faves, for obvious reasons.

Congratulations Adam.

BTW - way to go adam. May this be the beginning of your 0:15 of fame. (And such a quote to be remembered by).

I don't even want to contemplate what happens in the Asschurch. [Except... well, there must have been a sainthood in there for J-Lo, right?]

May I quote: Look, look @ the ass on that ....

assmembersonlyjacket has a certain apropos quality I quite like, actually. (I'd simply say "LOL," but I'm trying to raise the tone, don't you know.)

Oh, and I got abundantly used to being called "Greenfield" in the Army. I suppose I can get used to it again. Sigh.

Love, right back atchoo.
