Eugene, Oregon Doesn't Get ...

Eugene, Oregon Doesn't Get Phil Hendrie: More evidence that college towns are just human medical experiments designed to surgically remove your sense of humor. Sounds like you need to take a restorative year abroad, cousin Bob! I recommend Las Vegas....

Well, the Register-Guard doesn't exactly count as Eugene. It's regarded by the college crowd as the Reactionary Establishment. Of course, the rednecks next door in Springfield think the Register-Guard is staffed by traitors and com-symps.

The poor R-G is unloved and it can't win.

Having only recently discovered Phil Hendry, *I* don't get him either? What I don't get are the phone calls: on one side, some mean person who sounds like a prank caller; on the other a parade of outraged ladies from Arkansas calling him for everything. And they've listened to the show way more times than me. My current theory is that both sides of the calls are role-playing. Fuck it. My head has turned to mince since hitting 40. Need to get me a Buick.

You pretty much nailed Eugene there, Matt. It's even worse than most college towns when it comes to this sort of thing. I don't think anything funny has happened there since they wrapped "Animal House" and Belushi left town.

My son is U of O, a duck. He says that Eugene is nut city. Frankly it is the home of the Reactionary Left; absolutely no sense of humor, especially when it concerns any of their concerns. This is the hotbed of the Anarchist Movement and they are in the streets all the time.

A Reactionary movement reacts. That's their job, who they are. Anything and everything the Bush administration does will cause reaction to the reacionaries. So feel good. They are doing their job.

Hoodie--frequently, both sides are Phil. Wise up.

Rachel-- whaddaya mean "wise up"? You think just because you were in on it from the start, that anyone who catches a 1-minute snippet on the way to buy cigarettes just obviously cannot fail to get the entire show in that instant? Shame on you. Typical, arrogant, wise-arsed american woman. The only reason they should let women like you near a keyboard is for typing your boss' grocery list. Otherwise, stay in the friggin' kitchen.

Hoodie--anyone who listens to even a tiny snippet of Phil gets it. Sorry you're a moron. ALL THE VOICES ARE PHIL. Even the ones inside your pointed little head, you dumb bag of smegma. Could you be more foul and foolish, you stupid semen-breathed sack of pus? What's your issue--someone abort your sperm?

See what I mean? All you women are evil. Oh, you make like you're all nice and sweet and caring and stuff, but all the time in the background you're digging the knives and tearing at hair, and ruining our lives, on and on and on and on and on you go, never giving a poor guy a break, always on his case shout scream wail rant slap kick bite slash for ever and ever and ever Posted by: Posted by: Hoodie Craw at August 19, 2003 10:10 PM

Do you guys need a room?

Oh, so you're taking her part now? You're supposed to be the honest-broker host, but noooo, now you're ganging up on me too? No fair, no fair, no fair.

See, I did get it.
