      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Otter Pops Haiku

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

whispers by moonlight

catch her heart, her affections

smooth as Louie-Bloo Short Kook in high heels

bright strawberry polka dots.

My, you're looking swell!

 

nature's mysteries

fall before Sir Issac Lime

bespectacled force sing on, Poncho Punch,

sharing epic tragedies

pass the maracas!

 

with her cold, pale pup

waits Little Orphan Orange

frozen tear descends royal apparel

his Grapeness, Alexander

Et tu, Louie-Bloo!

 

frozen in slumber

Rest In Peace, Rip van Lemon

always on our tongues

 

 

There once was an otter, Atilla,

Whose luck with the women was killa.

His foes, to be funny,

Renamed him "The Honey" --

He trampled them all like Godzilla.

Cuz you don't give credit to Bonnie, duh! Without the juxtaposition of the characters, the quote becomes lame. Geek_em8.gif

The only people that know who GW Hayduke is will have read the book. Having read the book, they will understand the context from which it was taken. But, to satisfy anyone who would like the entire passage:

 

"Gloves!" Hayduke demanded. "Gloves! No fucking monkey business without gloves!"

 

So Doc bought everyone in the crew three pair each of top-quality buckskin gloves.

"Sno-Seal!"

He bought Sno-Seal.

"Sidearms!"

"No."

"Guns!"

"No."

Peanut butter!" said Bonnie.

"Guns and peanut butter!" Hayduke roared.

"Peanut butter, yes. Guns, no."

"We gotta defend our fucking selves."

"No guns." Doc could be stubborn.

"Them fuckers'll be shooting at us!"

"No violence."

"We gotta shoot back."

"No bloodshed." The doctor stood fast.

I was wondering why Martlet was such a dick, then I looked at his posts. He started out nice enough. It was the rest of you that started this childish mudslinging.

 

Sorry. You created it, now you have to deal with it.

 

Maybe he can teach you how to deal with playmates who don't share the same political stance.

I count 3 or 4 who've come forward in his defense... maybe even 5 or 6 if you count Doug and cracked sideways approval... slothrop? oh, wait make that 7, fenderfour... He accepted NOLSe's offer (to go bouldering) and invited him over to his local... heck, that one was even a "climbing related" post...

Not a fan...but I'm opposed to this sort of post.

 

He's free to be as nasty as he wants to be. If you don't like it, ignore him.

 

I'd much rather tolerate a jackass than remove their ability to speak.

 

This is the one and only time I speak in favor of ***Martlet***

Agreed, the talk about banning Martlet pisses me of more than Martlet himself. He hasn't made threats to anyone,posted porn, called any gals the 'c' word... and he stays in spray. BFD. I basically ignore him now, as well, but that's my choice and to those who wish to argue w/ him ....that's yours. let's keep it that way.

I love how you fucks always assume the rest of us actually want in... if that was the case why do you dicks have to spend so much each year on recruiting???

 

What was the theme for your homecoming dance this year? Midnight in Paris? What’s the matter? Didn’t get to go to any in high school?

 

Does your frat get a bulk discount on Rohypnol?

 

Don't be bitter. Not everyone gets accepted. It's ok. There's always the math club.

 

Does this mean you don't want to go bouldering anymore?
