    Re: Luke,

    Clinton Cards, BlueFrackle ! They are all over the place, how could ya miss that ? Nah - i think it's just the major branches, i saw em at the Bluewater one so i'm guessing there, Lakeside and in the big Central London branches. It was definitely Wedding Kermit & Piggy, and i erm think Beaker ..... unless it was Fozzie. I had an incredibly demanding girlfriend dressed in a very sexy micro miniskirt with me so i was unable to give them my full attention at the time .... she was dragging me away ! Anyway they were new in and VERY expensive ....... they were with the celebration/bridal stuff stuffed out the way on some low shelf !

    Yeah, I got a few things to say...

    Anyways, I'll drop it. Luke, ya shouldnt have attacked me for a joke thread that YOU originally thought was funny and then started a dogpile. Im sorry if some folks got irritated with the joke thread. I seriously wouldnt have posted it without Jamie's blessing, and apologize for not making it more clear that it was a joke.

    No, nothings wrong with me...Im actually pretty happy and excited for various reasons as of late. The thing on Palisades was newcomers kept posting these nagging threads, so I posted a picture of a tumbleweeds. The slightly more angled picture post was toward Grail who was being mean. So sorry to see once again a few folks dogpiling on me...just wanted to bring some levity, didnt think itd cause such an uproar. I usually am careful what I post, and I would NEVER compromise a company's release thing(hence why I waited til Toy Fare to post the Pepe comparison) I really think Luke switched all the sudden to all out mean against me on page one of this thread for whatever reason(With Nate, thats expected) Some folks just like to bash me for any reason they can find. So yeah, I didnt say jack to Luke and then he bashes me...hence my abrupt defensive reaction.
    So yeah...

    *TUMBLEWEEDS*

    yeah, sure i was dissapointed with the whole fake pepe thing. But it was a joke, don't you guys think your being a little harsh on cory? that crap sucks. He has beeen really welcoming and nice to people, and i don't see what the big deal is with a little joke thread

    Cory,

    I actually did see the whole Pepe thing as kinda funny, i said that in the 9th post in this thread and it's pretty clear from the 2nd although you should have probably used your own hosting and made it a bit more obvious. It was kinda the other stuff lately that i said i was a bit concerned about, i'm sure i'm not the only person to notice a change from your usual self. I don't blame you for posting what you did, although some of it was a little misleading, but natural reaction when someones backs against the wall. Maybe we can just have the old Cory back (which was somewhat less 3am'ish) and erm yeah *Tumbleweeds* !

    :p

    Luke, first off I have a BIG RULE that I broke...and that was getting personal and Im sorry. Im known to throw out crazy
    cannons of destruction when backed against a wall. I just felt I was obscenely being attacked for posting a joke thread. Luke I feel truly terrible about stuff I said, even if it was only on the forum for a few minutes before I deleted it. The good thing is the power of the edit, and the fact people already know to take what I say with a grain of salt.

    Its so surreal...when I asked Jamie for that pic to ost a joke thread I never thought itd cause such an uproar, and to the newcomers who didnt know about this Im really sorry.

    Me and Jamie have gotten **** near pirate cut throat on here,
    yet I somehow end up not being bale to go a day without chatting with him^_^

    I will admit I seem to have been on an attention getting thread hijack mode as of late(ie: looking for erroneous newbie nagging and posting irreverent images) I am active in a lot of 20,00-30,000 member forums(usually movies, video games, etc) and
    we do that stuff all the time...so I thought maybe some folks would appreciate that. Guess not.

    Now what I feel bad about is how youve been one of my biggest booster, such is why I was kind of sad to see you turn against me rather harshly later in this thread. I just dont understand why we all cant get along...I truly despise this segregation and bitterness thats come around since the old MC. Oh well.

    The funny thing is I am quite sure most of us would have the time of our lives hanging out...as our online selves can be quite misleading at times(look at Jess' attitude sometimes, yet I am quite sure that is a big 180 from how she is in IRL...same with me on my more maddening days)

    So yeah...Im not gonna cheese you off with my usual tumbleweeds schtick. I think its just a case of a few big boys in a small pond who need to get along...err something like that.
    And yeah, I realize I need to learn more nettiqutte, as its to easy to sabre off mean spirited rants and pretend it doesnt effect anyone. So Im sorry, and wanna get across that it usually isnt like me to post mean crap like that(unless backed into a corner which I felt)

    I didn't say one thing on this ever-so-predictable thread. You must really be hungry for some well-deserved reality checks if you plan to bring my name into your mess.

    You need to learn.

    I believe Jamie stated that you best not be posting that pic when you asked him for it Cory.

    I'd be careful of the webs you weave, sooner or later they can hang you.

    But...what about the blow-up dolls?? :confused:

    I thought I had this conversation changed already.

    :sleep:
     
  14. Luke

    Luke Active Member

    You mean you 'came out' as a blow up doll user just to change this conversation ? I'm impressed, but i think we're all adults here - we've got the catalogues, seen the flyers, bought the puncture repair kit etc etc !

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    They have puncture repair kits?!

    Geez! And all this time I've been using duct tape and bubble gum!!

    :crazy:

    beaker Well-Known Member

    Gee, that's funny...if you'd take your head out of those show tunes, you'd read that I DID get Jamie's permission to post the pic...oh...

    Hi Nate! Congradulations, you are an ahole! Please click here...
    This one is for you Nate And ya can click there too Jess.

    Yes, because all I said was bad things about you:rolleyes:
    Please tell me your a nice person IRL.
     
  18. radionate

    radionate New Member

    I'm not going to post anything about what Jamie did or did not say. He's a very good friend and can post what he told you himself.


    And I refuse to get into any more of an arguement. I'm moving on now.

    Wow, folks reading this...look at all the people attacking me...NOTICE they are THE SAME people who came out to attack Phil and take advantage of the "9 Days" mistake?

    You hypocrites should be a shamed of yoruselves. Just come out and admit your Tough Pigs infected poison, and tell us all why you hate MC and all that Phil has done.

    I notice not one person who has met me IRL has posted anything bad about me...gee, could it be because Im a fine upstanding kiddo, and free from the twisted garbage some of you idiots try to inflict on me? Phil, Jamie...please dont lock this thread...I think youd be VERY curious to hear what the TP poison brigade says behind closed doors.

    You folks call yourself Muppet fans, yet ya tried to take down Phil by any means neccesary. Oh no, an extra cd. Who gives a crap. You people make me sick...

    Actually, if you were near me, I would mak you sick, LITERALLY.. I have a cold...

    but enough bad jokes, I didn't care abit about the CD dillemma, I don't know what it was, and frankly, I don't WANT to know.

    Yeah, the Tumble weeds thing was directed once at Lew Zeland on thje Palisades forum, when he made up news about the Muppets winning a Grammy, and it was just a pointless, unfunny joke. Heck, even I disapproved and gave the thread a one star rating. I can't tell what went on on the Palisades foum, mainly because it's down again (I'm guessing Resident Lilly and the rest are pulling their hairs out, or what's left of it), so whatever it is, hey, fuhgddaboudiT!
