I am a Glassed DJ

Please, stop asking who I am! I told you, I don't know!

So, as EPL Talk's 'comedy writer,' I've discovered that Manchester City and Arsenal supporters can be a bit...earnest. Today's write-up brings more colourful comments about my 'inept hackery' and helpful suggestions for me to 'suck an egg with my sympathy' and to 'stick it up my ass and fucking smoke it you charlie.' Charlie! Good god, I don't even know what era that comes from!

And that's only two clubs out of twenty. Let's see how far down the rabbit hole we can go, shall we?

I'm also apparently writing for the Torontoist (hence the recent delay in posting, as I have to, you know, try to write well and stuff). So fellow Torontonian soccer fanatics, if there's a story and you want it covered, talk to the jerk.

You should be ashamed of yourself, writing about teams you don't even support and provoking such preternaturally sensitive souls. I mean, just imagine what you would be like if you had to go through your whole life with the name You are a fool or Thisblogsucksballs. Do you think you'd have a sense of humour? Do you think you'd be able to read an article about the football team to which you have an attachment which paints it as anything other than a shining example of all that is good and holy in this universe without bringing the author's mother into the discussion? Have you no compassion?

Bloody hell Richard. At this rate, you'll be the next Steven Wells. Great stuff as always.

Cheers,
The Gaffer

Hold on -- maybe he wants to be the next Steven Wells. Maybe he's posting all of these comments himself! Come on, Richard, you're amongst friends, you can tell us...

Verification: praffic: an amalgamation of prat and traffic. What happens when some not-quite-all-there football supporters bombard a website with abusive comments...

I do still kind of like Arcade Fire, you knobneck.

Brian, you didn't see me scrounging around for half-an-hour one morning in desperate search of 'Funeral' to listen on my way to meet someone. I had to apologize for arriving late. I am a knobneck. Incidentally, I'm friends with their ex-drummer, Arcade Fire's very own Pete Best.

Fred -- I'm not nearly clever enough for epithets like "charlie" and "knobneck."

Gaff -- At this rate, I think I'm on target to be the next RUSSELL BLOODY BRAND! Thirty comments for a largely incoherent post on an Arsenal FA Cup tie!?

Brian said...

Can we actually get a judges' ruling on the meaning of the word "charlie"? I assume you're not being connected to the Viet Cong?

Richard Whittall said...

Well Brian, if digging support lines for the North Vietnamese Army adn swearing life-long fealty to Ho Chih Minh makes me a member of the Viet Cong, than I guess I'm a member of the Viet Cong.

Man in the black pajamas, Dude. Worthy fuckin' adversary.
