(Editor’s note: Chase we never told you to write this, in fact we pleaded with you to not)
Well Mr Editor, it appears that you have taken the liberty of being the voice in my head telling me to
stop. But like Deadpool I’m just crazy enough to take over the world with nothing more than pancakes,
tacos and a bajillion tons of C4 and marshmallows.
(Editor’s note: Please for the love of all that is the Flying Spaghetti Monster just write the article we
asked you to write, go talk to the Geek Partnership Society and the Source and make something up about them)
In due time, in due time. Right now I need to tell the world about my story! My glorious and infamous
rise to power <cue evil laugh, if you see me ask me to do an evil laugh, I’ll actually do it!>. By using
comedy and satire I have become second only to Zuul, or Cthulhu, or pick your evil deity of choice.
(Editor’s note: Ok. . . . . . . So we have another writer that went off the deep end, fan-freaking- tastic.
Hopefully he won’t be as bad as Grumbledor is. Deep breaths, we can get through this)
It all started back when I was a boy (Editor’s Note: great, alright everyone settle in, or this might be the
only good time to go see if the Lode has anything interesting in it, they typically have some coupons from
Hardee’s or Culver’s or something equally healthy) I was just a sprout then. Knee high to an Arkturian
Mega-hopper. It was at that point that my father, the then Sith overlord of the quadrant sat me down
and made me <Redacted by the editor> in his <Redac. . . how the hell did you even manage that with his
spleen and ear at the same time?!>. After the ordeal I knew that I was a new man (Editor’s note: he was
a new something, we promise, but man might be stretching it a bit). I also knew that nothing would be
(Editor’s note: Yeah, we aren’t the same having read that, audience, please trust us when we say that
you are much better off having not read what happened, the entire budget for the next few years will be
utilized to erase what we read.)
We can skip ahead to high school.
(Editor’s note: Or we can just skip the rest of it all together, please, seriously, I’ll give you $5 to stop)
I think I can hold out for more. So back when I was in high school, and here I am going to show my age
just a little bit. Cell phones had just become an affordable thing, hell, back when I started high school
people still passed notes.
(Editor’s note: Great, Grandpa’s off his meds again, how about $15 shut you up?)
I think for $15 we can skip ahead to the college years, part I
(Editor’s note: I’m afraid to ask, how many parts are there.)
Well, that would be college, and I did a lot of things that are still classed as blackout ops. It’s not that I
can’t tell you, it’s just that I can’t remember, so most of it I’ll need to make up, I’m expecting it to
become an epic like the tales of old, there may even be a guest appearance by Mark Hamill and Carrie
Fisher who perform <Redacted. . . . again, and you will thank us if you knew>. I’m guessing we should be
finishing up somewhere in the XI or XIV range.
(Editor’s note: <begins to scrape out eyes with a rusty spoon> make it stop, for the love of all that is
pasta, $100 to just stop now, please)
$100 you say? You want to give me $100 to stop telling a story?
(Editor’s note: Yes, for the love Ithaqua stop)
Well then, I think my story has been done justice here. Before I go, let me leave you all with some
advice. When life <Redacted, as soon as we finish vomiting>
