He really got under my skin. Probably back 8 or 9 years ago. I would argue with him here and he won't admit it, but I know I got under his skin with some pretty intense debates and arguments.

Now I look at him as that weird uncle or brother who is a pretty cool character
even despite his donut fetish


Merry Xmas big guy

    I never thought badly about you. We got into discussions (like Mark and I do even now), where I disagreed with your reasoning. But it was never personal. I don't remember ever being angry with you.

    I was only ever angry once (on the forum). it was with something Riffle said that I took personally. I have no idea what it was. And it was many years ago.

    What matters to me far more than how someone thinks, is the quality of their character.

    You honor me with your post. You made my day.

    Merry Christmas to you as well, my Friend.

    Added later; It just occurred to me that one reason I like Riffle is that I would make a very credible Santa Claus, and he would make an excellent elf.

      I wish you could remember what it was so I could say it again.

      If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

        The mere suggestion that he put Sprinkles on his Meat Eaters Pizza must have been deeply offensive.

        Something about how you desperately tried to get Claude to drop the soap on the floor of the shower you all were sharing in Wooster that one Xmas during a heated tryst

          Soap On a Rope, was pushing their products very hard back then, (gratuitous subliminal joke warning).



          But seriously Riffle offended one of his cats, by saying that Claude could beat him in a game of Chess, and he became angry since his cat was offended.

          He demanded a full apology and a bottle of Cat Nip, but got neither apart from some 10 year old, partially eaten, chock cookie dog treats.

          See, this just shows how little you know about Claude. To think he would be holding soap in the first place is preposterous.

            Woosters "Sudsy, Scented, Soap and Stockings" promised him a new line of soap, with the unmistakable aroma of smelly feet, three day old kippers and chocolate pudding, how could he resist?

            The SSSS promotional team kept telling him it wasn't edible, or oral, but the lack of a good interpreter and the cherry's, meant it was lost in translation.

        I remember now. You told me that you found evidence that I was your real Father.

    Claude is an acquired taste, like Arsenic. Together, over the years, in a coordinated effort with his wife, we have psychologically trained him to be more personable. Built up the airs and graces in his frontal lobes. The angry, slightly younger man has retreated.

    But we know that deep down, the evil still lurks in his psychopathic mind.

    But as of now, he has never been so cute and cuddly and big.
