I have always enjoyed having such a witty repartee with ASID in our twabble battles, so it's sad to see how things turned out, really brought down the whole twit-fic section that he was so instrumental in building up.
So strawman, don't be so modest, it's not like you, you know your the (straw) man for the job.
Also, this Miss Grimsley character was before my time I guess, but I love the name, and how she is referenced so often...

I don't even know where the master controls for the "Fist of Death" feature are here. Since I'm a huge fan of Karma, what I'd REALLY like is if Tweedy would grant me custody of his avatar, so that Tweedy could be my sock puppet disciplinarian, and strawman could remain the sweet, gentle muffin that he pretends to be.
Okay, back now. Obviously, I have just proved the importance of Abbie's suggestion.
If that's okay with Mr. Tweedy, I am willing to become his apprentice.
Miss Dorothea Grimsley was a horny, latex-wearing, spinstress English teacher who was "channeled" by strawman in order to cure ROU of his addiction to gerunds in early drabbles. ROU, although slightly traumatized, was cured of his gerund dependency, but it came at a costly price, as Mr. "Oliver Cromwell" Tweedy captured Grimsley and her sock-puppet zombie horde, and sentenced her to be executed. After all appeals failed, ROU gave a moving eulogy at her funeral. But a statue of Grimsley, riding crop in hand, now adorns the Drabblecast town square, and can be seen from the windows of the adjacent schoolhouse.
Legend has it that the spirit of Miss Grimsley is responsible for the outstanding quality of writing in the Drabblecast and its forums.
