He's been laying low, having suffered a back injury related to his latest attempt at autofellatio. Well on the road to recovery, he saw the pic of Terry that Dan just retweeted. That made him decide to try just one more time. They're rushing him back to Harborview right now.

Screw you, @1. Can't a faggot lurk in peace, however enormously flattered by the attention he may be?

@4, hanging out with people who know how to spell his name, presumably.

@2, we do miss you.

P.S. to Dom. Don't ever end a sentence with 'at'!
Makes you sound like a dumb hick.

@7 (raindrop): A visitor to Harvard stopped a student and asked him, "Excuse me, can you tell me where the library's at?" The student replied, "At Harvard, they teach us not to end a sentence with a preposition." [Pause.] "Okay, can you please tell me where the library's at, asshole?"

@7, are you new to 'murica? "Where you at?" is an established idiom, shared by hicks and urban people.

Douchebag.

I think I'm going to switch to it. My comments show that I'm still an asshole, just a little less often gratuitously so. I had no idea how to make a transition

@ Raindrop,

No need to apologize, it's not my real name anyway (thank gods).

In hindsight, I should have picked something more simple.

@Gus,
Yeah, it's kinda like you got volunteered to be host, whether you like it or not.
But I enjoy reading your comments, so it could have been worse.

But now back to more important things: why are we not talking about the Terry underwear model pictures Dan has been retweeting? They are SO BEAUTIFUL!

Aw, shit, Gus is probably Dom, too. Tom Johnson is practically an anagram of Dominic Holden.

@25

Faster than me. Till you explained it, I just saw a bunch of nonsensical discrete posts. Of course, your explanation made it so obvious that you're probably him, too, and since you were invoked, you were probably the invoker.

Just as I've always feared. The internet is really just me and one other person out there messing with me.

Or worse, the internet could just be you and your own other personality messing with yourself. Like an evil technological Gollum.

No, it's not me. I don't have enough blackouts for me to have written all the other stuff. I'm definitely being gaslighted.

Gus...you're not allowed to disappear, certain fagtgots are central to Slog (well, plus fnarf, who is an honorary faggot).
And Canuck, I wish she would come back, but it's been forever.

PS to Gay Dude for Raindrop @7 - Don't ever tell people how to end their sentences. Makes you sound like an asshole (kudos to PCM). Seriously though, sweetie, it looks like you're on a Grammar Police meets Slog Posting Rules Maker role today, and you don't wear that role so well. Just wanted to let you know where it's at.

"Are you coming with?" is apparently a phrase I have uttered not infrequently that has pinpointed my upbringing (on more than several occasions) to the upper midwest, and even in one instance to my hometown itself.

The thing is, you CAN end a sentence in a preposition
AND its meaning will be understood by everyone
so then... what exactly is the HARM!?* .

Boy, I so needed to have this thread explained by Urguthu. I didn't even know you could make two avatars/accounts.

*Also, don't get me started on split infinitives. They totally ROCK. And no, I'm not kidding.

@33, it's me, riz. One reason I originally picked a handle instead of my name was on the remote chance it could stir up the annoying memory of what a leechy terrified boyfriend I was to Isidor back when he worked the door. You vowed to cut me if I was bad to him, and I was bad to him, so all I can say is, please, not the face.

Person 1: "Where's your car at?"

Person 2: "Never end a sentence with a preposition, it makes you sound like a hick."

@41 -- the version I learned was a Texan talking to a Yankee.

"Were y'all from?"
"I'm from someplace where they teach us not to end a sentence with a preposition."

...and the rest of it is the same.

My other favorite is "Don't use a preposition to end a sentence with."
