LET’S PROTEST! LET’S BOYCOTT! GO NAD! GO NAD!

Denver – Good morning, everybody! I have decided to join in on all the fun against AG Bell Foundation’s battle against the National Association of the Deaf (NAD). And I want to boycott because I am outraged! I am appalled! I am mortified! I am calcified! I also thought the NAD’s response to AG Bell Foundation was amazingly histrionic, and I also appreciated the fantabulous display of emotion that oozed from the NAD’s email/letter/video/postcard sent to AG Bell Foundation.

That’s right! You read it here first: Paotie will join in the protest! And boycott!

In fact, let us use DeafRead as a prime example of how we can make our lives better! Witness the massive number of vlogs and blogs rolling through DeafRead that deplore AG Bell Foundation and praises the NAD for bitch-slapping the AG Bell Foundation! Outstanding forms of freedom of expression!

I LOVE DEMOCRACY!

People to the power! People to the power!

In fact, I am currently in Denver and will soon be outside AG Bell Foundation’s facilities, and I will have a sign that says, “GONAD!GONAD!” (there’s only so much space on my poster-board, okay? Alas, I tried to insert, “pettifoggery” in there, but as much as I love that word, there was no room for more words) So, c’mon and join me!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

C’mon, everybody! Join me RIGHT NOW no matter where you are RIGHT NOW! Do not SIGN IT – just SHOUT, “GO NAD! GO NAD!” It is our new Deaf joke!

WOO HOO!

I love protests! In fact, I am willing to bet that I may even meet a hot, blonde, Deaf chick who wears “tight” denim skirts/jeans, with a tight pink angora sweater, and together, we might get around to “fixing” what needs to be “fixed!” And then, together, I can shout:

GO NAD! GO NAD!

So, if you’re in the area near Denver, come meet me near AG Bell Foundation and join me as we Deaf shout our powerfully aphrosidiac slogans! YES YES!!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

But, really, I would much prefer to protest in the summer for a simple reason: water hoses! Water hoses are quite fun – especially when there are women nearby in tight, white shirts! The trick is to avoid falling down after the water is turned on because if you’re not careful, you might end up piled against a building with a hot chick wearing “tight” jeans and a tight, wet and white shirt on top of you!

I am not kidding you!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

Not only that, we might even be picked up by the national press, who will ask deeply profound questions to any protesters who join Paotie in Denver. One example of such a question is, “She doesn’t smile .. how do you feel about that!?!”

And! Plus! I love the fact the NAD president, Bobbi Beth Scoggin (not “Scrooge” – “Scoggin”) actually interrupts her vacations to support protests! WOW! I am impressed! In fact, I truly hope Ms. Scoggin can join us in Denver as we chant and shout:

GO NAD! GO NAD!

YES! YES!!

SORRY, I AM A BIT Hyper now after feeling all the good vibrations from my subwoofer. Oh, and all the inspiring blogs/vlogs that are circulating through DeafRead saying the same thing I am:

GO NAD! GO NAD!

Well, there’s lots of other good reasons to protest and/or boycott things and people, and I won’t delve into the details, but I do want to remind you that this is America and that I strongly encourage you Deaf people to continue protesting and shouting the way all ya’ll have! I am quite proud of the fact we can join arms and protest a common cause!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

Anyway, I have to rush off now – I have my prostate examination later this morning. And consider this a public service announcement message for you Deaf males: get your prostate checked! Be safe – not sorry!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

Have a great weekend protesting and boycotting! And above all, have fun – just like the students at Gallaudet University did (during warm weather – smart!) when they protested Jane Fernandes’ iPod! Skip classes, set cars on fire, and watch hearing Deaf groupies become martyrs after a hard day of standing around and doing nothing!

GO NAD! GO NAD!

Be good .. or be good at it.

Wake-up! This is NOT “fun”, this is serious. Why do you think this is a fun battle. UH!

McConnell won’t join you ’cause he speaks. Bad example!

Lois

That’s why I volunteered to be Eitoap’s reporter to interview the AG Bell’s public relation employee and your favorite gal, Pamela Anderson (She’s the member of the PETA and she have always protested against the fur.)!!! :razz:

White Ghost

*giggling more* I can’t wait to see more comments…

Karen Mayes

B.A.D. ..

There’s a difference between being “serious” and being “hysterically paranoid.”

Gee, I wonder why people blamed AG Bell for the “missing” ad that lots thought was to be shown DURING the game?

Uh-huh. Hysterically paranoid.

Yup!

*sips Iced tea*

Gonna boycott iced tea, now?

*laughs*

Brian L. Mayes

G.S.! I am abbreviating these words. I ain’t gonna tell what they stand for ;o)

Karen Mayes

How do you sign “Go NAD” ?

Hahahahaha….. Mike, you are naughty!

Karen Mayes

B.A.D., Terri and Cobra,

Wake up.. You gotta have a woody to understand what Paotie meant… unless one of you dreamt of Beth’s pink lingerie bra and string underwear underneath her.

Wait, Paotie is it too hot for you? Your iced tea needs more ice…

B.T.

Give them the “bird”??

Brian L. Mayes

Are you allowed to sign that in public?

GONAS! GONAD!

K.L.
White Ghost

Sure, all you have to say is, “Sorry, I’m deaf”. Like Poatie did with the po-lice… Mind not believe us, tho…

*Signing GO NAD GO NAD*

Brian L. Mayes

Oh my goodness… I think it is hilarious…that this blog is published… hahahahaha…

Shows deaf education is lacking.

Karen Mayes

BT ..

Too hot? Nah.

Actually, you gave me an idea: I’m hungry for a BLT.

HaHa!

Thanks!
:)

Paotie

And then, Paotie got the head lice from po-lice. :razz:

White Ghost

White Ghost, you are funny… pecker… huhuh oh….

Karen Mayes

The po-lice!?!?

*looks both ways!*

Where is the 5-0!?!

Quick! I’ve got to hide from the Deaf Po-lice .. they’re a-comin’!

*laughs*
:)

Paotie

Hmm ..

I barely remember Woody Woodpecker, but I can’t figure out how to type what Woody sounded like.

“BWEEEHA! BWEEEHA! BEHEHEHHEHEHEHEHE! BWEEHA! BWEEHA!”

*shrugs*

Phonetics is fun! Especially when you’re Deaf!

WOO HOO!!
:)

Paotie

tick-tick-tick everywhere

7 of 9? He needs your help! Cap’n Picard and Lt. Cap’n Riker are on the way to see you.

White Ghost

Yeah, I wonder how soon the human editors would realize their error… hahahahaha….

Need to take an English course in satire ;o)

Karen Mayes

Quickly, Borgs are nearby!

Karen Mayes

Borgization are everywhere now!

7 of 9 is now on her way to see Paotie!

White Ghost

Any sexy Borgs???!?

Cos, I saw SOME that were HOT! I would LOVE to have a HOT cyborg tell me:

“Resistance is futile. Assimilation is inevitable.”

OoOOhh, yah, baby!
:)

Paotie

“doctoral student in public policy and administration, Paotie hopes to one day be a political consultant and/or published author.”

Interesting. Making fun of a political cause? I guess you want to be an published author more…it’s much more easier to get press by demeaning others. Ah, America! Many different political activist groups? Ah, America!

As the saying goes, “the road to hell is paved with bad intentions.” or is that good? I can’t seem to remember.

Matt Ellis

Matt ..

YUP!

I am also 4.2 feet tall with, “More to love!”

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

Matt Ellis –

Have you seen Bill Maher from Politically Incorrect, the Night Show on TV?

Com’n, Matt.

White Ghost

Oh, short? No wonder.

Yes I have seen Bill Maher. I have seen the Stephen Colbert show, the Daily Show. They are all funny.

I just want the Deaf community to be stronger, then the slapstick can ensue.

Matt Ellis

Matt ..

Well, golly-goodlums! DeafRead is ONE BIG GIANT SLAPSTICK FARCE!

Heck! I didn’t create this out of thin air – I just looked at the DeafRead articles and *poof!*

“GO NAD! GO NAD!”

*shrugs innocently and kicks a small pebble*
:)

Paotie

Matt, gosh, you mean we d/Deaf can’t be funny?? Deafness is not some sacred cow, ya know?

Ann_C

Well…they all mean well. I’m not so sure about yours and some others.

By all means, go slappy-happy. Whatever floats your boat.
In the meantime, let other people do what floats their boat.

Matt Ellis

White Ghost ..

The OLD Bill Maher was fun to watch. Today?

Ehh ..
:)

Paotie

I know.

I miss the ole days of many good jokes, i.e. Johnny Carson. Very classic jokes.

White Ghost

Oh my god. This was the funniest thing I’ve read in a long time! I love it!

Oh man. I got funny coming out of every available hole in my body.
I love funny. I eat funny for breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper, dinner and midnight snack.

I’m just more tired of this lot in life where we just put down others for the sake of funny. There’s SMART funny and just funny. I guess I just prefer the former.

Matt Ellis

Matt ..

I almost forgot! I AM doing a public service for our Deaf community!

Let me remind you: GET YOUR PROSTATE EXAMINED!

Seriously! Doctors recommend it – even if you think all medical doctors are crackpots! And LOTS of Deaf people think all medical doctors are crackpots, trying to brainwash us all!

GET YOUR PROSTATE EXAMINED!

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

Matt Ellis,

For one, everybody in this “room” wants equal communication access and freedom of choice whether it’s ASL, CART, hearing aids, cochlear implants, AVT, SEE, closed captioning, captioning on vlogs, internet access, video phone, relay operators, etc.. etc… ad nauseum. We all have that one single common thing we all have and that’s communication access. Paranoia on the other hand is not a nice thing to watch as it helps de-evolve things rather quickly.

But it’s rather hypocritcal of people to espouse “equal communication access” and be supportive about it but get all bent out of shape because, like mine for example, I choose to talk on my video on deaf-related subjects along with captions/subtitles surely make me wonder whether anybody out there are sincere about their support for diversity and communication access. Time will tell though as this paranoia continues to build and certain group of people are being pressured to change their thinking and approach to try and limit and coral this growing but supposed “problem” they have on hand. It’s not a problem when it’s all about diversity and choices. It’s only a problem when they think that their lifestyle and way of living is being threatened. Only in their own mind do they think it’s being threatened.

This is the first time I’ve clicked on your link. You must have done something wrong.

I should have read you old posts before commenting. Nice to meet you. You now can go back to your lamenting of Bill Maher of old.

I’ll get my prostate checked, thanks.

Matt Ellis

Matt!

You learned something new today!

GET YOUR PROSTATE EXAMINED!

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

Gotcha Mike. It is all persepctive. When one believes in a perspective, it becomes real to oneself.

Karen Mayes

Dude, you gotta let the Gallaudet protests go. Everyone else has. It’s ancient history. And with the passage of time, it’s easy to see what the core issue was. It wasn’t a lack of smiling, it was a university president thinking he could handpick his successor and force his choice through a board that he had also handpicked. Get it?

Karen ..

Not only that, but there are too many “Deaf Experts” who are telling people WHAT, HOW, WHY, WHERE, WHEN and WHOM to read. Or even how to INTERPRET what other people write.

So, naturally, if people are only “exposed” to certain things and are purposely “shielded” from other perspectives, then their perspective remains very narrow. That is what happens when “experts” go around to blogs and demand that THEIR interpretation is the ONLY one that matters on the planet.

Kinda like a DR editor!

HaHa!

People need to think on their OWN – not have people tell them WHAT TO THINK.
:)

Paotie

Yup… I see that there is an Advanced Deafhood course for teaching people to think (or shall I say brainwashing? ;o) ) I checked on it, and I did not find any evidence of “critical thinking”… more of yeah, yeah, your right, why, cuz….history said so!) That explains the saying “history repeats”… no independent thinking, uh? Of course, they would sadly say we are victims of colonization thinking.

Karen Mayes

“Colonization?”

HaHa!

Don’t get me started!
;)

Paotie

Oy!

Downright nasty!

Poking fun at a non-oral deaf person’s inability to grasp the subtle nuances of English isn’t going to wake anybody up.

“Hahahaha, you see that? Flew right over his head…hahahaha…That’s deaf education for ya…hahaha”.

Sheesh!

Y’all are only stoking the fire.

Sigh.

From one extreme to the other, enjoy your laughfest.

SlackinPenguin
Karen Mayes

SlackinPenguin ..

So, you’re saying ALL Deaf people are incapable of reading my articles because they are “Deaf?”

HOW … HOW .. AUDIST OF YOU!
:)

Paotie

Mike, I agree with you regarding communication. I’m all for equal access. I want captioned movies on my iPhone when I get it. Etc, etc.

I think all this is really about giving ASL its notice. ASL opened many doors for me, a lot of it mentally. I hail from a Deaf family, we all sign, email, keep in touch. We discuss current events, joke, laugh, and love together. All that is because we sign. (I am in no way saying others can’t do the same if they do not sign. I am talking from my personal experience.)

I enjoy the English language. I spend every single day reading and writing.
I walk a mile and more in other people’s shoes. Then I decide what I prefer.I do not know about other people, but I do that before I make a stand.

Those homies from AGB is not giving ASL the respect it deserves. I respect every other language out there. Why can’t they do the same? Guess we have to make a bit more noise so they can take notice.

Matt Ellis

Nice try Paotie, trying to turn this around on me. I never said “ALL”.

I see your intent and I know your target of ridicule. I understand where you’re coming from, but you’re not helping matters.

You know it, I know it, and everyone else knows it.

SlackinPenguin

Slackin’

My intent was to point out the hypocrisy with all the protests.

Glad you got that point!

You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it.
;)

Paotie

Matt,

I know where you’re coming from, I get tired of being put down too, especially by hearing people. But to be put down by others who are deaf/Deaf like me and tell me “You’re not welcome here” is in a sense a sort of deja vu. And I can’t help but feel a sense of irony about this practice of exclusivity.

If the deaf community wants support from all the spectrum of deafness, it needs to say “Welcome” without strings attached. We’ll work alongside those d/Deaf who advocate ASL for babies, for more communication access for all deaf, for improving deaf education standards, and so on down the line. It’s been a long road for many of us.

In the meantime, sit on Paotie’s couch and have good laugh or two.

Ann_C

Yeah, just a good plain laugh. Even Saturday Night Live shows do mock fun of other people. Also Jay Leno. Then the cobwebs would be swept away from our befuddled minds…good laugh is good medicine for health, mind and soul, ya know ;o)

Karen Mayes

Paotie,

Sure, I can get pointing out one’s hypocrisy.

But gonad? Ho ho, isn’t that funny?

“Pettifoggery”. Yeah, yeah…let’s belittle the concerns of the ASL community.

“And then, together, I can shout”. She can’t speak…har har…funny!

There’s funny and there’s outright cruelty.

SlackinPenguin

Slackin’ ..

Well, search “pettifoggery” here on my blog – you’ll find I’ve used it plenty of times without a complaint.

Nice try! Next!

“GO NAD!” Sure, it’s hilarious!

HaHa!

WOW! According to YOU – Deaf people CANNOT READ nor WRITE NOR SPEAK!

What were you saying about “hypocrisy?”

*laughs*

You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it.
:)

Paotie

What??? You Paotie??? Im confused and shock!! Am I dreaming??? What happen??? Wow!!! What happen??? I thought you do NOT like the idea at first place???? :O

ASL Risen

Nah, Paotie…you’re not going to turn this around on me.

You’re wrong. You’re stoking the fires. You’re trying to piss people off. You’re having a laughfest, poking fun at non-oral deaf people here at DeafRead, blackslapping each other…har har har.

Shame really.

You’ll hear no more from me.

Ciao dude.

SlackinPenguin

Slackin’ ..

“You’ll hear no more from me.”

And FYI – there are LOTS of Deaf people who can read sufficiently well. Just like there are LOTS of hearing people who are illiterate.

You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it.

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

Is this post a cheap shot against NAD because u have a problem with them. Cheapening the outrage against A G BEll’s letter?

Curious as always, I Googled, “You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it.”

And I found a song by Jack Johnson:

*sings*

“And I don’t pretend to know what you know, no no
Now please don’t pretend to know what’s on my mind
If we already knew everything that everybody knows
We would have nothing to learn tonight
And we would have nothing to show tonight ..”

HaHa!

You know it. I know it. Everybody else knows it.
:)

Paotie

Tony,
This isn’t so much a cheap shot at NAD, as it is Paotie’s need to get his PROSTATE CHECKED. Preferrably by a blond nurse in a tight pink sweater. While the subwoofers are vibrating.

K.L.

K.L. ..

WOW! That sounds like fun!

WOO HOO!!

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

Sounds like a cheap motel where you could put a coin into the vibrating bed… while fantasizing about Pam Anderson… Hey, Paotie, shove the subwoofer under your mattress and see if it works?

;o)

Karen Mayes

Karen ..

I’ll put a big subwoofer at each corner of the bed and then …

THUMP! THUMP BOOOOOOM BOOOOOOM!! THUMP THUMP!

You know, I once had a female friend explain to me something about why some women LOVE to ride motorcycles – all that vibrating.

*shrugs innocently*
:)

Paotie

Hahahahaha…I rode on a motorcycle behind a man once time (in Rochester, NY), and nope… nothing happened ;o)

Karen Mayes

Karen ..

Really?

Well, what works for some women, apparently doesn’t work for other women.

What an interesting concept!

You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it.

HaHa! I love that!
:)

Paotie

You know what, there should be a new category for “Most Vibrating Sexy Blog Award” in DeafRead…

I’d better shut up ;o)

Karen Mayes

Laughing hysterically… you are funny… I fist-smack ya!

Karen Mayes

I’d better run… I got my kitchen almost burned down.

More evidence that deaf education needs to be revamped… to include the understanding of satires, tongue twisting words, etc… It is OK to admit deaf education needs some working on :o )

Karen Mayes

OMG.. OMG!!! I cannot believe I missed out all of excitement going on here!!! I just barely come on here for the first time today. I hate it when missed something good. *sighs*

LMAO!! I love your sarcasm, very funny! I see you still say “pink” — aarrghhhh!!! Now every time I see pink somewhere, I think of you, Paotie!

I think you might want to check this picture out, very nice pink dress: Click here

Just don’t let White Ghost see it cuz I really want you to have it! Don’t tell her, please! *grins* ;-)

-SG

Hi Karen
One of my boyfriends used to have motorcycle. I don’t remember anything happening that way either. Hmpf. I suppose it depends on how you position yourself and all. I never really thought about it. Now I’m curious. Lately I’ve been attracted to guys on motorcycles. They look so free.

I see there have been complaints about Paotie’s use of GONAD. I don’t see the problem. There are worse words. Maybe it’s because I live in a man house and I’m used to this kind of humor–not from my husband so much, but he does join in with my sons when they get going. Lord– I just want to leave sometimes when they get to burping and farting and telling jokes I don’t understand. I feel like I live with aliens.

It’s good to be able to laugh at yourself. I am supportive of the Deaf communities culture and I agree AGBell overstepped their bounds by complaining to Pepsi about the commercial. Once again, Paotie has been misunderstood.

kim

Is that pink, SG? It looks more like pas-sio-nate red to me ;o)

Karen Mayes

No, more like fiery glow red that my kids witnessed on the dining room ceiling, after the oil in the pan caught fire an hour ago ;o)

Karen Mayes

Karen, looks like your kitchen might be in need of a new paint job. Paotie recommends pink…

K.L.

Wha…? Missed all the fun! Sheesh. Paotie is one lucky dude! Just got my Victoria Secret Clearance catalog today and thought of you the Pink groupies.

Thank you, Paotie, for the pure entertainment in the current climate of seriousness.

anna s

it’s official. This humor is low class. Anyone who finds this funny will have to climb down here in the gutter with me.

K.L.

Low class? High class?

What? “High class” humor involves what?

“Did you hear the joke about the black hole?”

“No.”

“It was black.”

“Har. Har.”

Or, would “high” class humor involve the sad tale of an idiot who tried to fool topless strippers with fake money?

HaHa!
:)

Paotie

BT,
Wake up.. You gotta have a woody to understand what Paotie meant… unless one of you dreamt of Beth’s pink lingerie bra and string underwear underneath her.

Wait, Paotie is it too hot for you? Your iced tea needs more ice…
*ahem* I’m not here asking for “GONAD” okay..

((rolling my eyes up)) ain’t pink or peddles here!

*ahem* I think I’m wrong room here!

Terri Watts

WTF???
I don’t understand why some feel that ‘GONAD’ offensive. Can’t they get this joke?!?
Even other blogger complains about this blog at DeafRead. Sheesh…..
To tell you the truth, I was tempted to make a comment at her blog with “Care for GONAD?”

FTS!

Misha :D

Misha

Terri ..

Yes – this is not the room you thought. In fact, it is a common mistake people make when they leave a darkly-lit room – in which you can’t see beyond your nose – and enter into the GREEN ROOM of Paotie’s Green Couch.

Your eyes need “re-correcting.”

‘Tis okay. It takes time to get adjusted.
:)

Paotie

Oh man, this is great. I just read this out loud to everyone in my house and we are all cracking up.

I almost want to make my first vlog reading from this LOL! I think I can keep a straight face saying Go NAD!

D-A-R-N YOU, SG and Paotie!

Too bad I *ALREADY* saw it! I’ll have to take you to the court in the *PINK* room. The judge will have to wear the blonde wig and the pink robe along with the tits.

So, you will have to pay the pinky fines.

White Ghost

Anyway, I learned about Johnny Carson when I was about 11 years old. I learned about him through my older brother. That’s how it leads me into the funny world. Also watched him in the DVDs. (provided the closed captions)

I kiss-fist you, Paotie and I am still young girl! Love your satires.

White Ghost

White Ghost ..

Thank you!

*kiss-fist you*
:)

Paotie

This seems a “Laugh out” contests. I think I am winning.

Bob RRR

Noooo Waaaaaay! Egbert?? How many sites does he have?! I thought the site was run by a woman? Doesn’t she sign her name— Patti????? It’s a front??

kim

I’ve got some interesting tidbit to share with ya all…

“Define Gonad” by Children of the Eye is none other than John Egbert himself.

Candy

Well, he has three sites that I know of. See, his credibility was marred after the “censorship” fiasco. I recognized his writing to be his, but, wasn’t sure. So, I did some digging and got proof. That is all I will say for now. I’m 99.5 percent positive.

Candy

Been on the road driving to Florida the past 2 days….did I miss anything??? he he…

About riding motorcycle and feeling the vibration….my husband has a BMW and they do not vibrate!! May be a different story if you ride on a Harley cuz they’re loud and they vibrate…I haven’t ridden on Harley so I can’t say if that’s true (you know what).

All that driving and trying to read this blog making me tired. Good night ya’all

Divided

I’m not surprised it was Egbert. Patti Durr’s English is much better than that. I guess John has EGG(bert) on his face! Ha ha ha!!!

Me

I just got through. We’ll see how long my post stays up before he takes it off. I thought they were rather hard on Ann_C who is always fair with everyone. I think I’ve suddenly lost some friends too. Deaf people who usually stop by my blog. Whatever. . . I can’t be someone’s puppet.

kim

This is what I commented in “John”‘s blog…

“That is right, I will look at a mirror and say that I will not be weak like you people… I will laugh and enjoy life and you can be stuck in the “deaf” box and grow old and miss all this. Sounds like a sad story to me…? So, lighten up will ya?

Hey, John, nice website… You can’t hide!”

Just for laughs!!

*laughs*

Or was I too “GONAD” or ballsy??

*laughs* You all crack me up!! Keep it up, y’all!

Brian L. Mayes

“Awaiting moderation”?? Hate that sh*t!!

Brian L. Mayes

Thank you Brian. :-)
Here’s my comment– It’s awaiting moderation.
Gonad is a proper medical term. It is not slang. Paotie’s article was nothing more than a tongue-in-cheek scenario, whereby placing two simple words together GO and the acronym NAD together during a protest, it created another meaning that he only alluded to ONCE. I think maybe some of you who aren’t appreciating the humor here, it’s perhaps because there is a cultural difference between native English speakers who love word play, making up words and new meanings out of other words. Here you have two words with separate meaning that made an entirely new meaning. To us, it’s funny.

For what it’s worth, I agree with you about AGBell and their slimey letter and your 128 years of oppression. On the other hand, I love satire of any kind. Do any of you ever watch TV? Read political cartoons? Do you get the jokes? Lighten up a little.

Amen!! Don’t worry, you are a friend of mine for life!! I know the kind of people I want to be around with and it most definitely not those from “John”‘s site! I agree that they were harsh otherwise I most likely wouldn’t have said anything…

Still “awaiting moderation”!

BTW, I don’t “see” either…

Good morning to ya’all.

Well, there is a time to be sad, there is a time to be mad, there is a time to be joyful, there is a time to laugh, etc. I can’t get level-headed all the time… I can be bitchy (ask Brian about my PMS), I can be serious, I can be etc., etc…. Paotie’s site is where I can come and let my hair down (well, I don’t have long hair… just figuratively speaking), and join the fun of word play. I know many people find this immature… but the cities have their own comedy clubs where people can just once in a while stop being serious and see the lightness of the serious matters. I know Paotie’s site is like a hot potato and the DeafReaders are scared to be guilty by association if they stop by Paotie’s.

Paotie’s specialty is satire writing and he enjoys word play and has a lot to teach us, help us to improve our English skills by adding to our daily vocabulary (idioms, slangs, rhymes, etc.) and it is a rarity, for a deaf person to have this kind of talent… plus I have never met a deaf person who knows how to write a satire… Chris Heur from DeafDC.com is a fine writer also and there are many deaf people who write as well, I know. If I did not name any of you I apologize. Really, this site is for the fun of learning, fun of figuring out what makes human beings tick without (of course, and with) having feathers ruffled, etc.

John Eggbert? Boo-hoo.

We need to give him lots of dragon eggs. Not many commenters comment his blogsites. What the three wasted blogs are to be….nice to see that he is truly UNPOPULAR person. hee, hee, hee.

Karen, that’s true. Have you noticed any D/deaf bloggers to write many satires/jokes? Almost NONE! I have never entertained any deaf writers in the blogosphere, only Paotie’s.

Paotie is an exceptional writer. Not many deaf writers are like that. We need to send him to the Hollywood’s Guild of the Writers to settle down the strikes.

On the other side of the coin, have you noticed any D/deaf bloggers (vloggers) sign satires/jokes? Almost always! You may have forgotten that ASL is their primary language, with English as their second one. And its often when ASL is used as satires, non-signers dont get it either.

I enjoy Paotie work, and I visit here often. So, although Deaf community are small world, its still big enough, not to stereotype/lump every Deaf person together.

Satire is very common in deaf world, which is why I laugh a lot growing up…but, it’s done in signs! True.

But, to see a deaf person write satire, that is the ultimate orgasm.

And karen, you are so right! I come here to let my hair down too….

Jay –

I was referring to the bloggers’ writing skills, not the vloggers.

I like Olson Brothers’ jokes, however, they are the vloggers.

Wouldn’t be nice to see if Paotie becomes the first deaf writer to work for the America Guild of Writers in California, huh?

White Ghost

I come to the Green Couch to truly appreciate each of you and your posts. Just love the shtick and the slapstick, it’s refreshing.

So true about satire thru sign. Did you see the Olson Bros’ latest, Accept CI? Funny take!

DR has some very good satirists, both sign and written English.

Paotie,
I’m feeling deprived of your words, do something…Jodi

Yeah, I am with Jodi. I stop by your green office and the sign “Closed –Gone Snowboarding” makes me feel… aaaaawwwww….

;o)

Karen Mayes

I’m with Jodi and Karen!

I stop by your green couch. I am so b-o-o-red.

Are you with the pinky judge doing the snowboarding business?
