I wonder if Rick is even aware that he's basically the subject of a huge internet joke.

I read somewhere that he is, and that he doesn't like his music video being used in that way.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Want some real debate? Head over to the real part of the forums, instead of hiding away in the shit talk and trying to raise your post count. Post count does not equal intelligence, LOLZ!

Man, you just got owned by some Goerge Clinton look-a-like in another thread in this section. Looks like you got nothing left but personal attacks, ad hominem?

The 'real part of the forums' are a boring mass of "why is the horizon curved?" ""Why do ships seem to sink" "What about gravity" blah blah blah.

Anyway, there's still hope for you because I'm never gonna give you up...

This part of the forum was made for comments just like that.

No commonsense, no argument, no nothing. Just opinions. But I guess I hurt yours enough for you to have to respond in defence of another. You sheep are so predictable.

By the way, I love these forums, and if I ever get banned I will be back as somebody else. That?s why you may realise my post count is low. I absolutely love reading this shit. Even the shit in this part of the forum. It?s probably the most interesting site I have ever come across. I've also read some of the most fucking intelligent statements and calculations ever in my whole entire life on this webpage. I have learned more here, just reading, than I did at school. I love this shit, but I fucking hate WENDY.

You're cool meat balls and spag. I also did go through the stage where I supported the spaghetti monster

Well, yes, that's about summarizing your posts, responding to mine. or well, I guess you did have an argument, albeit a false one. "ur stupid hurr durr" is a logical fallacy, commonly referred to as ad hominem. Look into it, if you're not very busy.
You sheep are so predictable.
All humans are predictable. That's how you know that they're human. If I had responded in a completely new and original way, you would have thought I was either weird or a troll.
By the way, I love these forums, and if I ever get banned I will be back as somebody else. That?s why you may realise my post count is low.
Because you behave badly and get banned?

If that's really what you feel about me, you make decisions on your preferences very quickly. Otherwise, I think you use the word a bit too carelessly.

Also, I didn't even know who George Clinton was until now. I thought you'd made a typo of Bill. :D

I think you should get into his music a little bit more, you will understand where I am coming from!

But anyways, good luck in your endeavour of finding friends online, because I am pretty sure you have none in real life.

Well, I wonder how you got so many post counts, just says a lot about your life.

LOLZ, wonder about the people who have more post counts than you!

Yea, 1/6~ of the world voted for Rick.

?

Nice.
