The subject line of this thread made me hesitate on whether I should open it or not.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

I concur...

From what I understand, this is pretty normal...

It's when Boner sticks around for 4 hours that you're suppose to inform your doctor

From what I can gather the prudent thing to do is to walk around the city and try to convince your window reflection that talking to your doctor about the missing boner is the right decision.

Your doctor will then give you the pill...you know, assuming you are healthy enough.

When you get the pills, you call up your buddies for one of your wednesday afternoon jam sessions where you parady Elvis songs. You follow this up by sitting in a bathtub you've dragged out to the middle of nowhere. Once in the bathtub you can patiently wait until the "time is right." Once the "time is right" the missing boner will magically appear.

I guess.

The only thing I can't figure out is what this all has to do with Checkov.

Sounds about right. Let's just hope the Boner hasn't gone limp by the time he's found.

Brady Quinn can't Checkov for shit and DA ain't much better. We need to bring in Kevin Kolb or Matt Hasselbeck or Daryll Clark (in the second round) if you're really talking Checkovs.

I'm guessing the new board hasn't kept the old rule of "don't be an asshole".

Guy was dealing with depression and committed suicide. I can't figure out how that becomes comedy fodder.

Of course I just turned off Matt Patrick filling in for Triv who said something like "Boner died, that's something Viagra won't help". Just not funny.

If the guy was going to sex thearapy like Woods and Steve Phillips, he's get more respect from the media and this crowd.
I mean a "sex addiction" is much more serious and real than some depression type condition.

Unfortunately Yogi, just like no 2 folks who have the illness are the same, either are the family & friends who deal with them...

I can't answer for other people on these boards, but I'm sure that they're just using humor on a terrible situation and don't really mean any disrespect to the individuals who actually have it?

Personally, I've lost 2 family memebers and my best friend to this shit and we now have 2 other family members with it...Been to therapists over the years to try and deal and understand it, etc...

Humor has been one way that I've been able to deal with it...Hell, when my MiL was in her balanced state she would always crack us up with stuff like, "Normal is a setting on a washing machine" & ""My delusions are better than your reality"...Loved that she could see humor in it as well

Some people take it very seriously all the time and that's fine too...when a sick person isn't on their meds then you should take it very seriously and try and help them...

I always tell people who deal with BP to read some Chato B Stewart (who has BP)...he makes light of a touchy subject in a humorous way...

I'm sure that you know that there is approximately 30% of people with the disease who never get help because they don't want to look weak and those around them don't understand what's wrong with them...Not sure if that's what happened to this guy? Sounds like his family has known for sometime and I'm sure that they've gone through hell trying to help and support him, but circumstances like this happen all the time...His family will beat themselves up over this and wonder what else they could have done to prevent it? Unfortuantely, until the laws are changed and the immediate family has the right to commit these souls to make sure that they are taking meds, talking to doctors, etc: then this will continue to happen...

Wow. Far nicer than the 'Fuck You Mr. Moral Compass' I would have gone with. That's what I come here for ya know: random, anonymous assholes letting me know how to handle certain situations. ;-) ;) :wink:

Your way is far nicer and took a lot more thought. You really think the people here who were joking about it might take it more seriously and not irreverently if it was their close friend or family member? Same with death and other things?

Hmm....

Maybe it balances out the humps with internet tears in their internet eyes wishing condolences to the family and close friends like they'll be read or that they were sincere.

Anyway, well done Wabo. That was a solid take.

I remember listening to Stern before Mickey Mantle died.

Every day during the news it was, "Doctors report Mickey Mantle's cancer has spread to his...."

The next day, "Doctors report Mantle's cancer has spread to his...."

The next day, same thing. Howard was like, "Christ, this poor bastard" The next day Robin read that the cancer had now spread to ______ and she went on to another story. Howard waited a few minutes, interrupted her and said, "Robin, breaking news here. Doctors now say Mickey Mantle's cancer has spread to his car."

My jaw dropped and then I laughed for about ten straight minutes. Not because cancer's funny or because Mantle was dying, but because some shit is simply funny and it's the way some people look at it. That broke a lot of tension and it actually reiterated how rotten a situation Mantle's was.

Don't like it, go a different route. Send a fucking sympathy card or post on some online tribute.

Every time someone dies and there's a thread on this same tired shit. You guys can go ahead and grieve for people you don't know about all you want. I'll find a way to laugh about whatever I can.

My somewhat insensitive remarks were simply a play on his name, pretty much nothing more. I don't criticize people for making light of the likes of Chris Henry or Artie Lange, etc., and I don't criticize those for their sympathetic takes of them either. I can respect either one. I'm glad alot of you came to bat, not solely for me, but for the right to post a message like I did. I only have a problem when someone tells me I'm being an asshole when they don't know me from Adam. I tend to always lean toward a humorous take than a serious one, just my .02.

Every day during the news it was, "Doctors report Mickey Mantle's cancer has spread to his...."

The next day, same thing. Howard was like, "Christ, this poor bastard" The next day Robin read that the cancer had now spread to ______ and she went on to another story. Howard waited a few minutes, interrupted her and said, "Robin, breaking news here. Doctors now say Mickey Mantle's cancer has spread to his car."

My jaw dropped and then I laughed for about ten straight minutes. Not because cancer's funny or because Mantle was dying, but because some shit is simply funny and it's the way some people look at it. That broke a lot of tension and it actually reiterated how rotten a situation Mantle's was.

Don't like it, go a different route. Send a fucking sympathy card or post on some online tribute.

Every time someone dies and there's a thread on this same tired shit. You guys can go ahead and grieve for people you don't know about all you want. I'll find a way to laugh about whatever I can.


Holy Christ.

When Stern said the cancer spread to his car I damn near drove the car of the road and shat myself at the same time.

And yes, I've known many that died from cancer, including friends and family. You just gotta laugh at the shit life throws at you sometimes to keep your sanity.

When the Lead Man cashes it all in, feel free to chuckle. Especially if beaten to death by a Lead Pipe, or some other goofy mishap. I won't care, I'll be dead.

Maybe the best way to celebrate the life of boner, is to get a boner. Maybe you should cry. Maybe you could make a joke. Deal with it how you wish, and don't worry about what anyone else does. Boner ain't hearin' any of it anyway.

Guy was dealing with depression and committed suicide. I can't figure out how that becomes comedy fodder.

Of course I just turned off Matt Patrick filling in for Triv who said something like "Boner died, that's something Viagra won't help". Just not funny.


Fuck that, filing. I mean, no disrespect, but fuck that.

Suicide is the second most selfish act to actual murder. Life is such a gift and to throw it away like that, when so many others would do ANYTHING for the chance to just take a breath in the morning... he deserves any ridicule he gets. Richly.

He had a father! His father will have to bury him. So, so, so selfish.



Christ, get off your pedastal. Disrespect is exactly what you meant but I forgot, Herm knows what's best for everybody in every situation. Life obviously wasn't a gift to this guy and to belittle his affliction just reeks of pure arrogance.
Fuck the Browns...
