Goons


The Something Awful forums are unlike any other forum on the internet: Sexism, racism, and posting like a retarded 12 year old who just discovered AOL are strictly prohibited. Of course, that means that 97% of the internet isn't really welcome here. What kind of people does that leave to fill the void? Goons.

The SA Forums are an eternal struggle between goons who do goony things (like rig up a Sega Genesis to voltage spike their cable-stealing-neighbor and destroy his TV, rasterbate huge pictures of anime and video games to adorn their bedroom walls, profess their undying love for Ron Paul or ponder the eternal question of why white people can't say "nigger") and the goons who hate them.

"Dan G." sent in this video a goon named "One Armed Man" decided to post on the forums one day for some reason only known to himself and God. As you will guess approximately 0.0001 seconds after clicking play, "One Armed Man" is perhaps the gooniest of goons.

In One Armed Man's own words:

"Oh man, I forgot another one. The same year (senior year) after the ap test we had about a month of nothing to do in the school's highest level of calculus. One part of a project was a music video. a few of my better friends made a parody of White&Nerdy which is itself a parody of Ridin' Dirty. The same editor from the other project editted. A few choice lyrics included "They see me derivin'. They hatin'" "I am just a calc-lus genius" In place of "I guess Im white & nerdy"<-- this which should of had about 3 syllables too many for the part he was in.
Ours wasnt much better because we did a death metal calculus song, on top of some Dimmu Borgir song. The class was stunned seeing a Canadian (his idea, singing and lyrics), me (not too gothy), and a preppy ginger with full face paint playing Guitar Hero controllers in the woods for four minutes. He called it 'The dirivative of nine'."

The long and short of this is basically some dork actually managed to out-nerd "Weird Al" and I guess is proud of it or something. To him I say "Semper Fi, Goon sir".

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
