    Well, given a donut is about yay thick, making the hole only about so deep....he was likely worried about insulting the admin-owner about his manhood and inability to perform. :dunno:

    Somehow the reader on my apple brings up his column without blocking me, the only way I read him. Sometime I listen to his show on WRUF AM but Steve Russel has the best call in show covering Gator football from 12-2 on WRUF.

                I thought you were the board historian. Where's @Durty South Swamp? He tells a good story. Somebody tell me a damn story!! Then I can eat my apple slices, drink my juice box and lay down on my mat for my afternoon nap.

                    We can’t bust heads like we used to—but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don’t go anywhere like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so I decided to go to Morganville which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So, I tied an onion to my belt which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel. And in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ‘em. ‘Give me five bees for a quarter,’ you’d say. Now, where were we? Oh, yeah! The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.

                          The short version is the website was being flakey. 78 created a thread where he posted the website of the bios of the top brass of the parent company. At that time, I happened to be reading the website of David Thorne. He would post side splitting email exchanges that he had with people. Here is in an example (be careful, this website can consume a lot of your time)
                          Yeah thats not what I was looking for at all.

                          Anyway, I posted a completely fake email exchange with one of the top brass. I was basically rambling on how the hamsters powering the wheels needed food.

                          Someone at the Sun saw it, thought it was real, and freaked out.

                          What happened next? I honestly cant remember. I think they took the site down for a day, or deleted that thread, warned all of us about some disruptive posters or so something like that.

                          Well, that only adds fuel to the fire. I immediately post another email exchange with the top brass and accused them of doing inappropriate things with those hamsters. The site was permanently shutdown within a minute of that post.

                          Allegedly.

                              Had no idea Tooley was still alive. But my first thought was Crucial will want his gig. but then I remembered that Crucial I thought got the Gator gig at the Lake City rag, so going to the G'ville Slime would be a huge step down

                                  And Dooley, not me, says you are the Gidiot.

                                  He surely says Im the King Gidiot

                                  I'm only a few minutes in, never heard of the guy before, and my sides already hurt from hysterical laughter. The one about the poster for the missing cat killed me. "No Reward!" :rotfl:

                                  @bradgator2, were your email exchanges with "the brass" totally fabricated, or was it their actual replies to your phony messages?

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
