Gary Is Still Dead…

July 27, 2011

… but never fear, Turdnardia is here to ease the sting with the gift that Jimbo keeps on giving… his own flab-assed reminiscences, conveniently congealed into one tidy self-honoring roll.  I hope you all appreciate the un-subtle reminder that Gary’s legacy can only be properly appreciated if it’s rendered through the infallible lens of JaMal’s farty tootering.

But I get the feeling that our true believers are losing the faith.  Not even a word of Latin from Barfnardia and we had to wait well into the morning before he emerged from Gary’s crypt this anniversary.  As I write this, fellow hair-tearer Rients has yet to ululate.

Will poor Arneson even get a mention this year?

    I don’t normally observe Gygaxmas, only Good Gygaxday.

    Gary Gygax is not dead. His spirit lives on in the stories dungeon masters tell their players and in the musings of interesting bloggers like Jeff and James. Your nastiness makes the spirit of Gary Gygax shy.

    Paul KB, I think invoking Him to berate or shame people with is in just as bad taste as picking on those who choose to pay their respects whilst referencing themselves.

      I see what you mean. Don’t upset yourself unduly.

    I think you have lost your touch. Ever since Kent whined about people ‘trolling’ under his name (irony), and you gave into him and forced the other kids to play nice, well, since then the old gal just hasn’t been the same.

    The July 27th message was intended to get the die hard Gygax followers in here, beating their breasts and saying you are being simply “beastly” to the memory of their hero and then scampering back to their respective blogs to write their outrage on the web… but what did we get? One half hearted rebuke from someone named Paul and nary a peep from the blogs. I think complete silence would have been less pathetic.

    Stick a fork in it. Maybe some of the ‘drizzleshit’ potty humor could bring the magic back, but I doubt it.

      I think it was more a (justified) dig at James M.

      I never have trolled but don’t let that stop you seeing ‘irony’ everywhere lending your mundane observations a touch of class.

      I wish people would leave me out of their increasingly subtle identity games. Is that whining?

      • July 28, 2011 11:35 pm

        Yes. Or at least a futile wish given the medium we operate in.

    • July 28, 2011 11:35 pm

      I think the targets have simply decided not to listen. Always a risk.

    Oh, he’ll be back no doubt. He has yet to score a hit on Rients!

    Not sure why Arneson would get mentioned on Gygax Circle-jerk Day, but perhaps the point is valid.

    Yay, Arneson!

      I have it on on good authority that not only did Dave Arneson stop pumping as soon as he finished, but he used to bogart the soggy biscuit every time.

        Heh, Kask, what a cocksucker. He is the stereotypical failure, now looking to grab what he can by reminding everyone he was riding Gary’s coattails, too.

    Anyone who thinks this post was a slight against Gary Gygax is a moron.

    Why say “Barfnardia” when “Gonadia” is easier to spell?

    “Greyhawk Gonad,” “Daddy Gonad,” “Gonad in Training.”
