Fucking asshole.

What a clown. I’d be willing to put money on his political affiliation, but I doubt anyone would take that bet.


#5

Misusing public resources to evade an integrity inquiry is elegantly on point.

his computer had started to “behave strangely and became unusable.”

Check for kiddie porn, STAT!

Dumbhead. If he had the wit to say “Russian hacker”, nobody would doubt him.

Well… If one’s computer did start “behaving strangely and becoming unusable”, and unusual posts started appearing on one’s social media, wouldn’t it be wise to start deactivating those accounts and neutralizing that computer before more damage could be done?

Or this guy.

I swear I can smell that room.

For those who haven’t been paying attention, this guy is representative of the crowd that will soon pay homage to Premier Doug Ford.

Brace yourself. I know this is shocking. I live in Vancouver, so I can attest to this firsthand.

Canada has assholes, too.

Does “assholes” = “hosers” there?


#18

You know, I’ve never heard anyone actually say “hoser” non-ironically. I think it’s maybe an eastern thing.

But sure, why not. :slight_smile:

This one post may jump-start an east to west lexicological migration of epithets. We are ground zero.

I pledge to do my part to facilitate this cultural exchange, starting right now:

Christ, what a hoser.
