I do not think that word means what you think it means.

I'm quite happy being a male of the species.

Understand me, there is not a thing wrong with the female form -- I am an ardent admirer and appreciator of said form -- but I am quite happy with my second-hand experience.

Some of my reasons for being happy to be male are a trifle esoteric (as a "for-instance", as a male of the species I'm fairly sure that my sparring opponents aren't pulling their punches -- Hey! I said they were esoteric!) but most are pretty much the standard fair -- the simple contentment of writing your name in the snow, that sort of thing.

Over the last few days, however, I have discovered another reason to thank God for making me male: As a male of the species, the chance of me developing an Internet bunny-boiler of my very own is slim at best.

I say this after reading posts in the 'Comments' section of Lady Tam's blog, where it seems that the lass has picked up a malapropian creepy crush.

And when I say 'malapropian', I mean someone needs to take the thesaurus away from that boy and beat him with it. Plus, the 'Keep It Simple, Stupid' concept has apparently never occurred to him, because he seems to absolutely delight in using fifty words where any other writer would have used one.

The icing on the cake, so to speak, is found at his blog, where he proudly displays several photos of Lady Tam, including her infamous Bikini Shot.

I will admit to possessing a copy of that picture, however, I don't have it displayed in an Internet sidebar shrine.

That sort of thing constitutes heading off into 'Person of Interest' territory, as we say in Law Enforcement.

If you want further information, Tam's co-worker ColtCCO has links to the whole thing at his blog.

While I honestly hope that Tam is getting as much entertainment out of this as the rest of us, I can't say that I'm too worried about her. I'm not quite sure what would happen if someone were to physically stalk her, but given her hobbies and homies, I imagine it would be a rather loud event.

Bleh. Guys are slugs. He's probably not even interested in her as a person; he just wants to get into her ... gun vault.

Well, as a guy, I have to disagree with saying "guys are slugs". However, I'm not sure that one ain't. Especially if he used her photos without her permission. From the sound of it though, it sounds like he don't know how to talk so he'll try to sound like he swallowed a dictionary. So far, I'm not sure I've missed anything in not knowing the guy, but I'll hafta check out his posts on Tam's blog as well as his own to know that for sure.

It'd be the first time in history the lead-in headline of "Woman Stalked Over the Internet" had, as the ending, "and police counted 14 different calibers used in the shooting they have ruled self-defense"...

1. Creepy. Ms. Tam had best purchase herself a derringer in camera-caliber.

2. Tam is a beautiful woman. With excellent aim.

3. 'Nuff said.

LawDog,

My site is fairly low-traffic. And the subjects of knifemaking and Filipino Martial Arts doesn't really attract (or hasn't yet attracted) nutcases.

phlegmfatale said...

Ew.

LabRat said...

Suffice to say there are a few sentiments I've been keeping to myself in order to keep the conversation decidedly OFF certain subjects.

It's not working as well as I'd like.

Well, the 'kini shot is nice, but the pic above it (Should be titled "Tam in Black") is far more striking and attractive.
Sigh...pretty ladies and wheelguns.
Cavtrooper.
BTW, you are right, this guy is shy a few rounds of a full loadout.

Brandon said...

With everything I've read of this guy so far, I'm glad to know that Tamara doesn't travel without the means to defend herself. Dude's just creepy.

Gewehr98 said...

That's friggin' creepy.

LabRat said...

GAH! ACK!

I just finished actually reading the last thing he posted.

WOMEN ARE PHYSICALLY DESIGNED TO BE EASY TO RAPE? WE EVOLVED THIS WAY?

I AM GOING TO GO SHOWER FOR THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS IF YOU NEED ME.

Phyphor said...

Loud event hell, it'd be a *LOT* of loud events, followed by a "crumple" sound, and then sirens.

Then Tam cussing at having to clean up critter stains...

"I do not think that word means what you think it means."

Inconceivable!

Tam said...

I'm ignoring him, but it is mighty, mighty hard not throwing aside the curtain behind which y'all are snickering, and saying "Look, buddy, the whole internet is laughing at you."

Oy vey.

PS: The word verification is "xuwbatz", which rhymes with "cluebats" which is what this cat needs to be beaten savagely with.

Tam said...

PS: The thing that creeps me out the most is not the little web-shrine, and nothing he's said, but the fact that he has referenced an anecdote of mine that, to the best of my knowledge, I have only referenced once on the internet: On TFL, some 12,500 posts and seven years ago.

It took some diggin' to turn up that post. Some sweaty, intense, single-minded, creepy digging.

Yeah, I had fun writing that little bit about NeoNutbag - it took at least some of the creepy off of it, anyway. Tam can take care of herself.

And thanks for the link, Lawdog - I had a ton of new readers check my place out...

Someone likes playing with the Tiger's tail methinks.
By the way Tam... when are we getting a new article on your blog? :-)

MrLabRat said...

"...it is mighty, mighty hard not throwing aside the curtain behind which y'all are snickering..."

I can only speak for myself, but I appreciate your restraint. If he saw the stuff over here, there'd be another 500 posts explaining his theories about how women are magically rapelicious in greater detail, and I don't think anyone wants that.

Then he'd see LabRat's comment about showers, start thinking about LabRat in the shower, and I definitely don't want that.

I just looked back at the idiot's blog and Tam's photos are down. I don't know what has transpired but wondered on a couple of "if"'s.

Methinks he saw all the links coming from here and wandered over to see what the deal was....and realized just how much of a dork he was making of himself.

Now Tam is one mighty fine specimen of the female form, and I myself have found her pictures most enjoyable as well, but she IS well armed, mentally and physically, which MOST people would grasp intuitively as an indication that respect should be shown at all times. Nuff said.

Reminds me of a line I heard once:

Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.

That was the main "if" I wondered about.

"Now Tam is one mighty fine specimen of the female form, and I myself have found her pictures most enjoyable as well, but she IS well armed, mentally and physically, which MOST people would grasp intuitively as an indication that respect should be shown at all times. Nuff said."

One thing I've observed on several occassions is a beautiful woman is much more injoyable to look at when you know *and* like her on the mental level rather than just the physical superficial.

"Reminds me of a line I heard once:

Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice."

Less is more.

He knows he will get his ass shot off if he proceeds with this.

Of course, if he gets suicidal, he will probably buy a firearm and attack ... You might want to hire a PI, find out who the sorry twit is ( get a photo of him ), and get a restraining order.

If he shows up, shoot his ass.

Anonymous said...

I've always wondered why somebody would say something like "shoot his ass" when everybody knows... or I thought everybody knew... that it's CenterOfMass hits that that end an attack. They'd have to turn around, as if retreating, for you to "shoot their ass". If they retreated before you shot 'em COM, the sight of the weapon scared 'em out of feeling like fighting. Hit 'em COM and regardless of whether or not they survive, they won't feel like attacking or retreating either one, so "shooting their ass" would be a moot point, if not a negative if it went to court. Otherwise, "shoot their ass" seems to sound a lot like "busta cap in hizzass".

Gee, campers...

If I stalk Tamara, do you think I'd get a personal visit? Or at least a note about how well the scale that I gifted Oleg with, which has since karma'd its way to her, is behaving?
