There's a fair chance that I will be suing you, "BakedPenguin", so I'm asking that blogger save your IP address and other information concerning your libelous post.

Línea anaranjada Specia said...

Ocasión justa que le esté demandando, "BakedPenguin", tan soy que pregunta que el blogger ahorra el su IP address y la otra información referente a su poste difamatorio.

I thought parody was protected.

And in libel cases, don't you have to show damages?

How's LoneWacker gonna prove to a judge...

a) that's it's a parody on this blog--not the years of ridiculous jackassery he's posted on his own blog and at Hit & Run--that makes him look like a ridiculous jackass?

And b) after a judge reads what LoneWacker's written on his own blog over the years, how's LoneWacker gonna prove that he isn't, in fact, a ridiculous jackass?

Ken Shultz said...

Seriously, after talking to the guy for a few minutes, I bet he'd have a hard time trying to find a lawyer willing to take his case on a contingency basis, that's for sure.

Dude! That should be the next strip! LoneWacker lookin' for a lawyer.

And I'm not a judge, but it seems to me like the preponderance of the evidence suggests that he really is a ridiculous jackass...

Don't you think?

Somebody ought to submit this to H&R.

This is in the running for Urkobold Post of the Year. Heck, the bar is raised so high now...nice work Señor Penguin.

BakedPenguin said...

Ken, I was pretty much thinking along those exact lines. For libel, something has to be presented as reality. This is such an obvious parody / satire that it doesn't fit.

Yes, there also has to be "damage to reputation" or some such. The only place I posted this was in H&R, where I think it's safe to say Lonewacker already has the reputation of being a piece of shit. You can't damage what isn't there...

BakedPenguin said...

Also, thx for the compliments, everyone. I appreciate the feedback. (especially since it's positive)

VikingMoose said...

Baked - this really is teh ausum!

back in the day, wacko called himself "lone wolf" and posted at H&R with really silly titles, "I just blogged my way across america - twice" and some shit like that.

he and this other asshole (clothier, i think) were the fire and ice of nativist assholeism. you know the wacko, while clothier tried talking about dynamic vs static (a la postrel's book) and made dumber comments about econ than most. basically at "austrian" types at H&R or those fucking idiot goldbugs... (fyodor tooled him on the basic theories of trade)

the innominate one said...

muy bueno, señor pingüino pastel

Dagny T. said...

This is fantastic. Thanks for the funny!

Now I will have to check this blog too, and get even less work done for the MoneyedInterests which employ me, not to mention my charity work at El Centro down the block...wait, could this all be an elaborate ploy by the LoneWhacker himself to undermine TehSystem from within? *gasp!*

Ken Shultz said...

Seriously, though, in real life, he may not really wear a tin foil hat...

Do you think he really thinks any of us take him seriously?

...and can any of you explain to me why someone would spend so much of their lives on one issue like that? Like he took some kind of vow.

He must be like some kinda anti immigration nun or somethin', you know?

Thoreau said...

The Evil Fizik Type gives mad props.

Due to the amazing awesomeness of the post, and its strong chances of winning Post Of The Year, I may have to let Mr. Steven Crane out of captivity to join the celebration.

Stevo Darkly said...

OH, AWESOME!

I don't know how I can demonstrate just how much I really dig this stupendously superb post, other than by sending you a large manila envelope filled with the physical evidence of my manly love and esteem.

Watch your mailbox.

D.A. Ridgely said...

Nicely done!

dhex said...

how do you libel that which is already zero?

Pro Libertate said...

Is that aluminum foil or aluminium foil?

BakedPenguin said...

Thoreau - I'd certainly appreciate if you let Mr. Steven Crane go. It's his turn to do the mail @ Urkobold, and we just received a ...uh... strange package.

Pro Lib - I believe it's aluminum for everyone except Dagny T., who outed herself as a Canadian over at H&R.

The reception to this has been so positive, it makes me think I need to work harder to get the next one out quicker. Fortunately, Donero's back, so I shouldn't be short of material...

Pro Libertate said...

Don't be too hard on Eric--he singlehandedly elevated this blog to a major libertarian site with his kind words after his interview with highnumber. That, coupled with our uncanny foresight in calling the Palin pick (and Obama's soon to occur Takei switcheroo) should get us a Sunday morning talk show.

Ellie said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA marry me.

Jake said...

Brilliant!

Aresen said...

Hilarious, BP.

As for the libel issue, I think that Judge Jesus Morales probably would not take it too seriously.

Dunderoo's back? I need a link, I must have missed it.
