The Pastetaster Cometh
Remember Captain Pastetaster?
He's the guy who is very upset that I didn't let him use Popehat has his venue to explain why adoptive parents like me are a danger to our children. So I started to edit his comments to make them into a soulful meditation on paste. He declared himself my mortal enemy. This is why you don't want to go on a bender the night before they're handing out archenemies; you'll oversleep and by the time you drag your hangover out of bed you're last in line and stuck choosing among Dazzler, Captain Pastetaster, and Aquaman.
Anyway, Captain Pastetaster is still around, and still planning to turn off the sun or poison the water supply or hijack a giant blimp or something to destroy Popehat. As you would expect, if you thought about it, you can find him on the blog of the sort of people who use the alpha/beta/gamma/omega-male non-ironically. Birds of a feather, and so forth.
Anyway, please enjoy this post, in which I am identified as a low-ranking white-knighting gamma, which turns out not to be a World of Warcraft term, and this comment, in which Captain Pastetaster indulges in monologuing:
I have an anecdote about that shithat, or popehead person. I left a coupla comments on his blog, which he seemed to like. Then a bit later I left a comment or two warning about the known dangers of non-kin adoption. He, having adopted two Oriental kids, took umbrage at that, changed my comments to read, "I eat paste" and I suspect flagged my blog to Google which caused my blog to disappear for a while, until I screamed at the Google "help" people and they put it back. He also tried to ban me by IP address, but I just hung up the modem and re-dialled. Idiot didn't contemplate that I might be on dial-up. All in all, that was a very womanish performance on his part.
I got some wine on my shirt when I got to the dial-up part.
The thread is also fun for comments like this:
Sexual Harrassment laws are literally the attempt to outlaw unattractive males.
O brave new world, that has such people in't!
