Patterico's Pontifications


Sockpuppet Friday—The TetriMario Edition!

Filed under: General — Aaron Worthing @ 8:37 am

[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here.]

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sock puppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself, a lot.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And for a little frivolity, check this out.  A man playing Tetris comes this close to making a Mario image, complete with hat:

And to appreciate the mad skillz it took to get even that close, watch this video.  Thankfully the video is sped up massively, because this took ninety minutes.

An impressive try Shuey187 and for that I salute you!

Of course, merging Tetris and Mario is not the worst video game mashup possible…

(That is Mario, reimagined as Kratos from the God of War games, via this hungarian site)

  1. Man, if I had a nickel for every time somebody uses that line…

  2. They will have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

    Unless I can get some gullible Americans to pony it up for me.

  3. Sarah Palin is corrupt, is in bed with Big Oil and is a complete failure as a human being. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go on an extended trip to Egypt and lecture the local denizens there regarding their recent behavior. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about – I have a villa in Spain which I share with my twenty children.

    I start crying after I chop up the onion.

  6. Tonight on America’s Most Wanted: I want to issue a special alert for our viewers in Illinois. Be on the lookout for these Wisconsin state legislators who may be trying to hide in your state. Call us if you have information about the whereabouts of any of these fugitives. Remember, you CAN remain anonymous … but THEY can’t.

  10. Anyone hanging out on this thread is receiving rent free residence and needs to declare this as taxable income, immediately. Have you done so? I demand an answer via national television. Have you called the IRS? HAVE you? No? I’ll call the IRS FOR you, today, you tax criminals.

  12. That is exactly what EPWJ looks like. He’s pretty intimidating in person.

    And Peace Walker is the best PSP game with the worst PSP controls. If ever a game needed dual analog sticks, this one does.

    Joe: Mary!
    Mary: Joe! I haven’t seen you since graduation from UW
    Joe: Remember the class cheer?
    Joe/Mary: Sixty nine is divine, sixty nine is divine….
    Mary: How about this? Just like the old SDS days.
    Joe: What are you doing now?
    Mary: After I graduated, I got a job in Wisconsin government. Retired after 30 years. Full pension and health benefits. I’m here to protect my financial interests. I had to fly up from Florida.
    Joe: Living in Florida?
    Mary: Of course, do you think I would pay Wisconsin state income taxes? What about you?
    Joe: I work down State Street in the UW political science department. Full tenure. That means I have to write some dribble every so often. Grad students teach the classes. It’s a good life!
    Mary: Protecting your interests as well?
    Joe: Damn straight! Imagine the governor wanting me to pay half of my pension costs and 12% of my health insurance? You would think I worked as a slave in the private sector.
    Mary: There’s a SDS reunion later, you coming?
    Joe: You bet! Wouldn’t miss it for the world. A lot of faculty will be there. See you there!

  15. All right everyone, listen up! We have a real problem in Wisconsin. If we aren’t careful there won’t be any public union money for my campaign. If proressive Wisconsin falls, everything else will go.
    Here’s what we’re going to do. We are going to rely on an Abe Lincoln trick. Federalize the Ill. National Guard. It’s a fast hike over the boarder to Madison. We’ll have them surround the state square and force them to vote to increase taxes by 50%.
    Let’s get moving…

  16. Eric P.W. Johnson is a puling monkey and…he has tiny onions for a man.

    Sarah Palin (848837)

  17. I dare you guys to make fun of me after I get back to my house by the lake.

    And, yes, Sarah Palin raised taxes in Alaska. And shot a moose. Or was that a bear? Whatever it was, she is evil. And happyfeet will verify that.

  18. You want I should make this governah guy sleep wi’d da fishes?

  19. The answer to the Wisconsin situation has been leaked by “a caller” to Rush Limbaugh. If loud rock music could drive Noriega out of hiding in Panama, broadcasting Limbaugh/Beck, etc loudly in the state house area is bound to scatter the protestors faster than tear gas on Bascom Hill.

    Of course that is only part of the problem, the other part is to find a democratic senator to drag in. Odds are there is at least 1 hanging out looking like a grad student drinking a beer at the Memorial Union- so buy a Bascom Hall orange chocolate chip ice cream cone and infiltrate with ears open.

    I wonder how long the Democratis senators are planning to stay away? I wonder if they can be impeached if they refuse to fulfill their responsibilities…Otherwise, this is the ultimate “spoiled-sport going home and not playing anymore” tantrum.

  22. @ Anonymous Operative:

    I’m wondering if someone has figured out an actual cost to taxpayers if this bill is not passed?

    I would personally recommend that they take that amount, then divide it by the Wisconsin population and, with that amount per person, Walker can ask every resident of Wisconsin to meet the teachers and union reps in Madison and pay, individually, that amount.

    But only if he does it with a hat tip and monocle.

  23. Memo to Wisconsin Senate staffers:

    In spite of news reports, please do not try to contact your Democrate Senator in Chicago. We have moved to a much more secure location, where we are preparing to launch our counterstrike.

  25. Bulletin:

    A WI Democratic state senator was spotted in Rockford, Ill. When asked why he didn’t report to work, he essentially said,
    “I have reported to work. My responsibility is to prevent that bill from passing until the people from Wisconsin have a chance to understand it…”

  26. The governor and all of his evil Rethuglican minions are screwing with our ability to teach the children!
    It’s ALL about the children!
    What about the children?
    If we can’t properly teach them, they will ALL turn into criminals!
    Stop interfering with our ability to teach them!

    This is why we have been protesting at the state capital all week long . . .

    . . . and NOT teaching your children for the past five days.

    Because it’s all about them.

  31. I was just thinkin’ — they say that Israel has sent trained sharks on attack missions in the Red Sea. So, if they’re capable of that, then . . . the conclusion is inescapable:


    JOOOO BUNNY!!!!!

    I mean, think about it. A rabbit dives in the water and swims out to attack me — ME?! There’s only ONE possible explanation: [whispering] jooo bunny. *shiver*

  32. I have decided not to run for Senator of Az. After all, I would have to quit my cushy job go on the campaign trail and then lose because I have people being felt up in airports but I really don’t care about criminals coming in our southern border.

  37. Once again proving that I have no sense of humor WHATSOEVER, last night I babbled on about how Palin made a joke at Michelle Obama’s expense — even showing the videotape that PROVED it was intended to be only a joke — and falsely claiming that she was being serious, and therefore a hypocrite.

    It was the supreme act of beclowning myself, for which I am justly proud.

  38. Dear Ms. Sherrod,
    Just a couple of quick questions regarding your case against Mr. Breitbart. As you know, we received immediate reply from Mr. Breitbart’s lawyers when we filed Sherrod v. Breitbart last Friday.

    However, today we received a letter also from Mr. Breitbart himself, which we didn’t understand. Simply put, it was his letterhead addressed to us, with a large “MWAH” followed by “XOXOXO” written in Sharpee in very large letters in the middle of the page, then signed by Mr. Breitbart.

    We were wondering if you could shed some light on this missive for us. Sincerely,

    Thomas A. Clare, PC, Kirkland and Ellis, LLP (e7daa1)

  40. And for those who don’t get the Br’er rabbit reference, here’s a youtube of the Disney movie you will never see on store shelves in your life, “Song of the South.”

    Interestingly, “Br’er” means brother. So Br-er Rabbit, Br-er Bear, and Br’er Fox, are all brothers, in a non-familial sense.
