In the Dawghouse...

For the first time in almpost 6 years on TMP, I have been put in the infamous Dawghouse. For three days!

"Why?" you may ask.

I made fun of the French. Or, at least, it was perceived that I made fun of the French.

Ah well. Just one more reason to dislike the cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

Xenophobia? Really?

Knowing you J, it wasn't even that bad.

Come on since when did we all become such a bunch of nancys that we can't take some light-hearted ribbing and jibing. Trash talk is just that. It doesn't mean anything.

After all of the mean-spirited, abusive, bullying, trolling crap I have seen hand-waved on TMP, this is what gets somebody Dawghoused? I suppose it's a good thing that we're safe from a little cross-cultural ribbing. I'll feel better the next time somebody is rakingm e over the coals for not knowing some obscure fact or for daring to have an opinion on something. Oh, and the next time I am being berated for thinking that walking war machines are cool, I'll take solace in knowing that people are being silenced for pointing out what history is quite capable of doing on its own about the French.

I mean, when I'm hanging out with my buddies, nothing gets forgiven and I get as good as I give. If somebody is really bothered then they tell me and I quit.

I guess I'll just have to go back to razzing those cold emotionless Germans and those hot-headed Italians. I'll also make sure to include my lazy and fat american friends to make the French happy.

Yup. Xenophobe, that's me. Pfft. Whatever.

thanks for your support, Eli.

Oh, and for the record, I am currently playing the French in a VSF online game. People need to not take some things a little less seriously.

Said the fat lazy American.
