Corky's Gonna Be Hacked

For all of you who are wringing your little hands waiting for me to post something, I have family in town this week and they keep wanting me to pay attention to them for some reason so I won't be posting as often for a little while. DRY YOUR EYES, MY SWEETS. However, I saw this tidbit last night and decided I couldn't let it get away.

I was reading an online ad yesterday (yes, I was that bored; come entertain me) and saw an ad for a realtor named Ed something-or-other. However, according to his ad, he apparantly prefers to go by "'Special' Ed" (quotation marks are his). What? OK. First let us examine this. If the man in question were actually mentally disabled in some manner, do you think he would honestly go by this nickname? Or that anyone would actually have the guts to call him that? No. OK, so we've established that he does not have a mental disability. So it then begs the question: why in the name of all that's holy would you voluntarily nickname yourself this and suggest others know you by the same? And not just your friends, but potential business clientele? What could possibly be going through this man's head? According to his website, "I am known as "Special" Ed because of the "Special" treatment you receive when you work with me and my team." Huh. Still unbelievable.

I really can't wrap my mind around this and have nothing further to offer except, what? No seriously, what? What?

That was really funny, Abby.

Surely he means we should call him "Special" Ed because he deserves special treatment from all of us average Joes. No? Then I have to reiterate what you said...what?

Thanks for writing the word Corky. Got me thinking back to the Corky Romano movie which brought a smile to my face. That movies cracks me up from beginning to end. My kind of humor I guess.

I still don't get the draw of Corky Romano. A little too high-brow for me, obviously.

Looks like what he wanted to happen, happened. You remembered him, and are even telling others about him.

Smart fellow.

Abby said...

True enough. But I still wouldn't use him as my realtor.

I wonder if Ye Old Anonymous post is from Special Ed. He seems like the type that would stay up all night Googling himself.

Which reminds me of a shirt I saw at tshirthell.com. Which, don't go there if you aren't interested in very, very VERY crude shirts. I'll email you the link to preserve the sanctity of your blog.

Anon was not from "Special" Ed's neck of the woods as far as I can tell. Half way across the country in fact. I don't know who it is, but I don't think it was Ed. Pity.
