Lady NaDa gives a shout out: "DUmmy FUNNIES... Hey Freepers"
Does she look more like Natasha Fatale or Nina Khrushchev? We still don't know yet. But we do know that DUmmie nadinbrzezinski, International Woman of Mystery, is watching this space. You see, Know-it-all Nadin has been the star of our last two DUFUs: Palinoia strikes deep: DUmmies DUped by Palin-invade-Egypt spoof!, in which Know-it-all Nadin was taken in by an obviously satirical piece; and Know-it-all Nadin off to strong start for DUmmie of the Year, in which Lady NaDa . . . a) talked with an Egyptian--in San Diego, and b) enlightened a poor lowly DUmmie who asked for guidance--by copying a few twitter tweets.
Well, yesterday Nadin, who's a little slow on the uptake, found out that we had DUFUed her, and now she has responded with, not one, not two, but THREE separate threads about her starring role in the DUmmie FUnnies:
This THREAD, "DUmmy FUNNIES... Hey Freepers"
This THREAD, "Now on what this freeper joke means though" and
This THREAD, "On privacy the net, and the law"
And away we go! Nadin and the other DUmmies' comments are in Look What I Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--happy to give Nadin her 15 minutes of fame, but hoping PJ will take a break from couponing to do a DUFU on the DUmmies celebrating Reagan's birthday--is in the [brackets]:
DUmmy FUNNIES... Hey Freepers
[Lady NaDa gives us a shout out!]
I will accept your sick award.
[Don't count your sick awards before they're dispatched. While you're off to a strong start, Lady NaDa, you by no means have "DUmmie of the Year" locked up. And trying too hard will only HURT you with the judges.]
I must say you guys are funny...
[Thank you! But we couldn't DU it without DUmmies like you!]
They are cute, and childish..
[We aim to please!]
people who have no idea what else to do with their time.
[Says Nadin, as she starts THREE threads, with over **250** DUmmie replies, about how the freepers have nothing better to do with their time!]
haha.. what an honor! I guess you've stood out, as you've lately helped keep the info on Egypt flowing here. . . .
[Nadin of the Nile has FLOODED DUmmieland with her streams of condescensiousness!]
[Sorry, not everyone can star in a DUFU. You have to do something to amuse us and entertain us.]
Hey, Natasha is HOT!
[Yes, but is Lady NaDa? Or does she look more like Mrs. Khrushchev?]
Congrats! Does being a "celebrity" at FR come off of your "15 minutes?"
[These are 15 BUSINESS minutes. So, no.]
Hobbies. These people need hobbies.
[Says Wee Willie Pitt, worried perhaps that Nadin will overtake him as the Number One Star of the DUmmie FUnnies.]
Wow! You have groupies! Just like a Rock Star!
[She's Lady NaDa! Miss "Poser Face" herself!]
85. Deleted message
[I think this was one where a DUmmie referred to Know-it-all Nadin as the "professor" who constantly "lectures" us. But--poof!--it's gone!]
I value being named in the DUmmie Funnies more than . . .
[. . . life itself. It's the highest of honors.]
Nadin of the Nile!!! . . . I *loved* the title bestowed upon you!
[It was either that or "Cleopatronize."]
They can be viscious. . . .
[It's downright vitreous humor!]
They just don't like people with history degrees. Edumucation is dangerous.
[That's FUnnie, since the guy who wrote that DUFU has a Bachelor's degree (history major), two Master's degrees, and is "all but dissertation" on a Ph.D.]
I'd bet a dollar the person who wrote that also has a DU account.
[Mm, could be! Someone with an LFT degree!]
Science Fiction Role Playing Games ?!?!?
Need to update since these days I do history. . . .
[The only role-playing Nadin does these days is being the Christiane Amanpour of DUmmieland.]
This year I'm Number 2 with them.
[Try harder, Stinky The Clown! DUmmie of the Year does not come easy!]
Did you ever know that you're my hero, and you're everything that I wish I could be?
[You can only ASPIRE to be like nadinbrzybrzy!]
Now on what this freeper joke means though
[It means Nadin gets to post a SECOND thread about herself!]
Now this is the meaning of those funny posts at the meta level.
[Nadin never meta level she didn't like.]
[DUmmie RandomThoughts responds . . .]
I think what I post here is grabbed by some group, then used for some other reason. Although they can't see whats in the stuff, so it is like a Trojan horse, if needed to be. The reason I think that is some things said on the tv, and posted here about that, where it seems I get labeled as being part of some group, although I think that label is probably Orwellian anyways. But here is my point, what does it take to convince someone that they should correct what is needed to be corrected. There is another possibility, but it is a bit metaphysical, basically my existence when I type here, is not far off of a spirit existence, in that I don't have contact but can communicate, making the internet no different then spirit conversations in form. I find that fascinating. But since anything is possible, it is possible that the Internet and TV, are some AI system, or that I am some form of AI system, and they are the real world. Either way it would be the concept of 'no bridge' hence why when bridges are seen, that delusion can be removed. Basically there are some people directly responsible for not sending the beer and travel money that is due, and they think nothing will happen to them, or think they are willing to pay that price, or don't think. So the best guess is blockers are top tier non feelers non thinkers, and that fits set a table before my enemy. Although if they have any of my capabilities, they wont be shaken, and have to be taken down, so then the valid claim of beer and travel money, removes the problems in the world. But it does not correct the problem of the beer and travel money being due. Hence the problem, if the filters are set up as the worst that can not be convinced and have to be removed, then what? If you eliminate them they would be replaced by another one of them, although could just burn through the whole bench. The basic problem is the blockers wont correct what needs to be corrected, and wont explain what is stopping them, because they don't want to correct things, they probably think it is a game. Until they get crushed or something. So what to be done? There only argument is that existence is bad, and since I don't accept that, if they do not correct what they should, either they or I have to stop existing, or someone has to change, which is the concept of Thor wrestling the snake. . . .
will all due respect, are you on peyote all the time? just wonderin'
[DUmmie RandomThoughts is the Wile E. Peyote of the DUmp. . . . But I digress. The topic here is nadinbrzybrzy starring in the DUFUs. And so someone asks her . . .]
how many theads on this are you going to post?
[THREE! At least. We now go to Thread #3 by Nadin . . .]
On privacy the net, and the law
[Know-it-all Nadin will now lecture us on a topic we already know about, like this is something new to us . . .]
A lot of things that you may think are private... in the age of the net are not.
[YOU'RE KIDDING, Nadin! I did not know that!]
Years ago we had this dance with somebody over at a Gaming Board, in Usenet... that is well before many of you heard of the web I suspect.
[Oh, Nadin, I'm sure you heard of "the web" LONG before any of us mere mortals!]
The web is a place where we have an ILLUSION of privacy, but I know that any real privacy went away the day I first logged on to that Usenet account over AOL oh... in 1987.
[**1987**, Nadin! Wow! You are a real PIONEER! You must know ALL Things!]
That is the brutal truth.
[Whew! I'm glad you told me, Nadin! I thought everything I posted on "the web" was PRIVATE!]
Why what you posted ten years ago, can indeed come back to hunt you today.
[It's like living in a hunted house!]
[The DUmmies respond, and a theme emerges . . .]
Amazingly, we do not live in cocoons: "...that is well before many of you heard of the web I suspect..."
[A DUmmie dares to take on the All-Knowing One.]
Sometimes your posts give the impression...That you believe everyone else on DU is an idiot. Seriously, Usenet? Internet privacy? Do you think you've told anyone anything they don't already know?
This is a response I could 'rec', with one alteration. Change the 'sometimes' to 'often'.
you really are an arrogant, condescending piece of work. . . .
[This was a suicide run by a now-tombstoned 1-post LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Dude, compared to her, everyone is an idiot. Shut up and enjoy your education. . . .
[Yes, you're PRIVILEGED to sit at the feet of Nadin "The Dean of DU"!]
"Years ago we had this dance with somebody over at a Gaming Board, in Usenet... that is well before many of you heard of the web I suspect." You could've ended the sentence at Usenet, but you just had to add that clause of condescension, didn't you.
[Know-it-all Nadin just can't help it!]
[Well, believe it or don't, Nadin has now started a FOURTH thread ruminating on her magical week as star of the DUmmie FUnnies! Nadin, you're trying too hard! Slow down, girl, or this will cost you POINTS with the judges! DUmmie of the Year is a long way off! Pace yourself! Sheeee. . . .]
