 An essential fashion item

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Feb 01, 2002

As an avid follower of the latest fashions and being an obsessive fan of the Slashdot boys and their heroic fight against the 'evil one', I am going to buy this little item. Anyone else want to chip in for a bulk order?

Do not follow the clickable link above. This appears to be some sort of ad for homosexuality, not 'an essential fashion item'. There are several old men dressed in leather, along with a young fat boy in a sailor hat.

I didn't see any homosexual motif contained within the picture. What's wrong with a group of men dressing up in leather, I do it myself all the time to relax when not writing device drivers.

What I saw in the picture was heroism, heroism of running a provactively anti-M$ site and causing Billy-Boy Gates, the personification evil himself, extreme worry.

They're on clearance at Thinkgeek. Apparently, no one wants them.

They aren't flying off the shelves. Perhaps if you had done the artwork it would be a very different story.

Are the Slashdot guys really that buff?

Just wondering. (But not too strenuously.)

Yes they are that buff (none / 0) (#8)

I am assuming that 'buff' means sexually attractive being not totally acquainted with your dialect of English.

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view), they only seem to be interested in 15 year old male monomaniacal obsessives judging by the 'honey trap' nature of their site.

'Buff' is an Americanism meaning well-muscled, physically fit, little to no body fat, that sort of thing.

Based on your second sentence, I'm assuming that they aren't.

That has got to be the most repulsive thing that has ever raped my innocent eyes. Anyone buying that should be shot. Twice.

Duh. (5.00 / 1) (#10)

Of course they need to be shot at least twice -- once to do the job, and once for a control shot to the head. More if you miss the first time, but a professional killer should have to problem hitting the target the first time around.

Peace and much love...

they must be brought back to life and shot again because they didnt die hard enough the first time.

I wouldn't subject my worst enemy to that grotesque image. The last time I saw anything even remotely as sickening was when I had the misfortune of following a disguised link to Eric Raymond dancing topless.

for accepting any commercial endorsements or ads is a Rubicon we must never cross if we are to remain the internets Most Controversial Site.
