posted by on April 3 at 9:47 AM

Over at his blog, further evidence of Rick Steves’ supreme coolness. Yeeeah, boy.

rick and i were part of the same crowd at edmonds high school. my nickname was 'queenie', after dondi's dog, and his was 'lucy' because of his red hair.

He sounds like Fnarf has his cock in his mouth.

That was pretty awful, but he's made a very lucrative career out of being a dork. A smart one, but still.

What do you expect? That he would be a great rapper? At least someone should have told him that using "da bomb" these days is outdated.

Might be time to moderate comment #3. I don't have any cock in my mouth. It does sound a bit like ecce with a big chewy lump of shit stuck to his teeth. Def, yo.

Do you think he killed a man while high on the demon weed? And watch out for Fnarf, he bites.

I always thought Europe was the name of a porn star on kcts.

Please delete Comment #6

For being off topic and offensive.

I was making a simile, while Fnarf was just speaking with his usual potty mouth.

Rick deserves many kudos for his progressive stance on US drug policy and his willingness to speak out about it.

I thought it was pretty funny... but, if I were his kid, and it were playing in my high school, probably it would be mortifying.

Rick Steves is the best. The best! My only complaint is the number of Americans that literally have run into me in Europe because they have their noses stuck in one of his guidebooks. Big woman from Topeka in the white sneakers and pink sweatshirt who knocked me over in the Orsay, I'm talking to you.

If you follow @9's advice, you need to delete @7 too.

Rick Steves is god...a dorky god, but a god nonetheless.

And his blog is very entertaining.

And he loves weed!

Please delete 7 and 13 as well.

They are offensive and off topic.

In fact, he is a repeat offender.

Please suspend his commenting "priviliges"

Someday I look forward to having a mad bicyclist accidentally knocking one of your loved ones into the street right in front of my speeding car, Ecce, so that I can turn and enjoy the look on your face as you watch your sweet's life drain out of them into the gutter.

Posted by Fnarf | April 3, 2008 11:45 AM

I love his blog and some of the people who comment on it. Especially the xenophobes. They are the best because he is so sweet and dorky while calling them on their ignorance/bigoted attitudes.

Please delete #16

It is offensive, off topic and is threatening my family. If there is a policy that the Stranger maintains about commenting, #16 violates all of it.

Fnarf, you have stepped over the line.

However, since you are indistinguishable from the rest of the mush heads that run this rag in appearence, thought, and mores, I doubt anything will happen to you.

Just keep on threatening other commenters families when you can do anything else.

We'd rather not moderate your comments, but off-topic, gratuitously inflammatory, threatening, or otherwise inappropriate remarks may be removed, and repeat offenders may be banned from commenting. We never censor comments based on ideology. Thanks to all who add to the conversation on Slog.

Between his outspoken advocacy of legalizing weed, his concerts with the Seattle Men's Chorus, and his everlasting ingratiating dorkiness, Rick Steves is one of my favorite people.

That's why when he does this, it's hilarious. But when Carl "MC" Rove does it, he's an asshole.
