I agree Bart that there is a lot more to Funk than just being wise. In fact i suppose in retrospect Funk isn't that way at all in. I can certainly see why you and others don't find triple R funny. Why do I? I guess that it's the little immature little kid in me that has been taught to behave but snickers in class when the wise guy cracks something "bad" in class. I'm not saying that I'm proud of having immature thoughts but RRR's absurd and disrespectful crack backs sometimes make me laugh.
I should probably "grow up" but I enjoy letting the little kid in me out sometimes. Just as I have no problem with people who think that RRR is worthless.
As for Freespirit.....I understand that his was an act. An act is fine. But keep it fresh. his was the same over and over and his lack of creativity started to bother me. FTR.....I told him on HROT (where he now resides) that he's probably an OK guy and would meet up at a game for a beer sometimes and now he mainly posts as himself. he's OK and if the mods ever let him back and he keeps it real or fresh he'll be a good poster I'd expect.
