Mega-Monday

The horror! THE HORROR! Yes folks, this weekend, I was forced to mingle with…people. The awkward chit-chat. The mention of car refinancing. Whinging bout bank fees. What a strange and horrible world to exist in, one devoid of normal stuff like video games, dressing up as comic book characters or the fine art of Call Of Duty sledging. But it was all worth it, as I walked out of a yard sale, triumphant and cradling a box full of cheap Lego! Uuurgh, people. What a bunch of bastards.

In Other News: Get your PS4 buns firm, jump into Poi, I’m on the road to the Iron Forest and big maps for big teams in Halo 5.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy thinking of carpentry jokes that would work.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Mehgaman Monday explains why today, which is Monday, was meh.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    “too busy thinking of carpentry jokes that would work.” Nailed it!

    • Almost screwed that joke up.

    • Would Work… Wood Work… Woodwork! HA, I GOT IT!!!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Did you start drinking at breakfast? 😉

        • I wish.

        • VampyreSquirrel

          Nah, he’d have gotten it if he had.

          • It’s a Monday, I have to wait for the other 6 cylinders to start firing first.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            You’re still using the “It’s a Monday” excuse and it’s after 4pm… what kind of Cape Townian are you?

          • The worst kind…

          • VampyreSquirrel

            The kind that used to live in White Couch… O.o

          • Googling that only brought up white couches. I am even more confused!

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Directly translate it to Afrikaans… Witbank.

            Wow… you are slow today.

          • xD

            It’s because I am getting old now.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Lol… getting old… XD XD XD XD

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I would probably have done the same…but I find this hilarious. XD

  • Hammersteyn

    We need to develop Darryns social skills. He’s as rigid as a nun in a sexshop. I prescribe a bottle of Jagermeister

  • Hammersteyn

    Funniest thing I’ve seen all day.

    • Splooshypooh

      That accent

  • Due to crappy internet at work today.

    *Please insert funny cat GIF here.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Monday almost finished getting in the sea… can’t wait to get home and play games!!!

    • I feel ya brotha

    • Hammersteyn

      Same here. But an ice cold beer first.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        The temptation to do that is REAL!

        • Hammersteyn

          I’d strangle people with my mouse cord if not for that. And I could do it too.

          • Splooshypooh

            I’m sure we can all relate 😛

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I’ve done this with my headphones and my face.

          • Hammersteyn

            And your weights.
            #Nevarforget!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Damn you! I thought I was safe here with Admiral gone! 😉

          • Hammersteyn

            I pick up the slack XD

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Attaboy

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            YOU ARE NEVER SAFE!
            I think today I might post some JJ pics that I have kept, you know, to get the new kids up to date on your antics

          • I did that with a broom last week at work, caught on our CCTV. Fun times people had around here.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Excellent. Haha

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Tomorrow Steam goes Randela.
    Not sure what to expect.
    I have mixed emotions.
    It’s like meeting Alien Emperor Trevor all over again.

    • Yea that steam going to our crappy currency has me worried as well. As for Trev, rAge CT is close.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        I hope to see you all there. I was at EGE and only saw Avo and Weanerdog. Rince was probably there too…but I wasn’t really planning on seeing him again. ;P

        • I drove past it on my way to the Waterfront, saw the board at the convention center when I went by. Did not even know about EGE.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Fair enough. There were only a few cosplayers there, but some cool ones.

          • I see there will be another EGE 29 – 31 July

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            It just needs to be bigger, then I’ll definitely go again.

          • I shall have a look see this year anyway since it will be my first 🙂

          • VampyreSquirrel

            You couldn’t have been paying attention to Lagz for 2 weeks before that then.

          • I have the attention span of a… oooh look at that!
