Here's how karma really works

The fires from yesterday's flame war burned brightly into the night, with our ambitious protagonists typing in all caps and demanding apologies and hurling curses until I. Just. Couldn't. Take. It. Any. More.

Flicking the angel on my shoulder across the room and hearing him hit the wall with a satisfying splat, I banged out a condescending, vitriolic, just plain mean response, howled at the Moon, hit "send"...

...and now I'm the group moderator.

There's a new sheriff in town, pumpkins. If everyone could start humming the theme song to The Rifleman now, that would be great.

Oooo-ee-oo-ee-oooo. Wah-way-wah. Oooo-ee-oo-ee-oooo.

See, there is such a thing as karma: they made you chief kitten herder.

I hear Pagan kittens are particularly good deep-fried.

*snicker* I had been thinking about making you a moderator for quite a while. This last one though was priceless!

Evn said...

Well I, for one, think you made a mahvelous choice.

Let's whip them Pagans into shape, shall we?

Somewhere in my files (and I'm not making this up), I have a recipe that includes the phrase, "Cut the kitten on the bias..."

Lisa Adams said...

Absolutely! On both counts.

Evn said...

Oh, and Mertseger, that's the theme song to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The Rifleman theme goes like this:

Bang bang bang bang bang! "The Rifleman!" Dum dum, dum da-dum dum, dum dum dum dum dum.

And then Chuck Connors takes his shirt off. Which is how I found out I was... different... from other little boys.

Lisa Adams said...

Ahh *grin*.

Sadly the only song that is going through my head right now is "Bonanza" *hangs head in shame*

Evn said...

Bonanza is how I found out I like bears.

And trolls. Admit it--without the stalwarts who start flame wars, who would there be to act as foils for those of us who are able to be articulate and (should occasion so demand) polite?

Really, I have a soft spot in my heart for those folks with soft spots in their heads, who make me look so good so often.

Hail contrast! And good luck moderating, Evn. *Cat gets a slightly evil grin*

Congrats on your promotion LOL. I know you will take your new position very seriously.

Now the big question do you have the correct boots, hat, and belt combination to really pull it off LOL

LOL Well said. The lil' varmits do come in handy, no?

As it stands, a number of the list members already loathe me, so getting to be the boss of them is like a hug from Jesus.

Was there ever any doubt? I can accessorize like a sumbitch.

Are you on HPOL? If not, think about joining--Li and I are in the process of redecorating.

Cat Chapin-Bishop said...

"Like a hug from Jesus!?!"

Ouch! That hurt! Never be funny like that again when I am drinking a mug of chocolate milk. That stuff feels really uncomfortable shooting out my nose!

*laughing uproariously, Cat exits, stage left*

Lisa Adams said...

*laugh* Awesome!

Rottie_mom said...

Somehow I just knew you would have the right outfit LOL

what or where is HPOL???

Evn said...

Houston Pagans Online. It's the Yahoo! group Li and I moderate/wrangle/beat into submission.

splats can be very satisfying sounds.

'Twas a happy splat. Plus, the cats took care of the body.
