So many levels of awesome.





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

That is indeed very funny. I shall initiate plans to move to Morganville at once.

Geektastic: Will Morganites sacrifice cats on the altar, one wonders?

 

Wouldn't a more correct term for them be Morganisms?

Robert Jones..... Who is he again.

 

 

 

Ok it was funny when he punched the reporter for interrupting his fishing in 1980's.

 

Now he just a grumpy old man with lots of cash.

 

Jokes about getting his building developments getting approaved in 1970's by getting the inspector drunk.

 

Most recently famous for getting kicked off and flight for being rude to an air stewardess because he didn't think he should follow the rules during flight safety demonstrations.

 

A.

 

(I made good money buying his shares in 1980s)

If the statue is built, I'll personally bring all three of our cats down to Welly to take a leak on it.

I wonder if Morganism will be included as a religion in the next census?

nathan: I want to grow up and become a grumpy old man with loads of cash.

 

Bob Jones managed to achieve all of that - except the bit about growing up.

He is different to what many think he is. I have seen a side of Bob Jones that doesn't get reported as he wont allow it. His generosity.
