King of the Umlauts and Pseudo-Dansy

Nothing could make me happier than glancing across today's Daily Nexus and seeing that a little something that I so long ago contributed to its office's much-cluttered walls is not only still existent but receiving prominent display as well.

That would be newly retired editor-in-chief Durnhoffer Dürnhöfer on the left and effigies representing three previous EICs on the left. (Curiously, the female EIC is omitted.) The Dansy stand-in uses a bit of anti-Dansy propoganda that I made during his unopposed bid for EIC a few years ago. Among other things, I claimed that he once ate a baby. Now that I think about it, it's actually documented here, along with defamatory comments about Dansy's leadership abilities and dress style.

Those truly were the days.


  1. Since I was the one that thought of placing the faces onto the Guiness Guys, no one else was there to continue the practice after I left. Or it could be a sexist plot to remove Kaitlin Pike from the records.

    Yeah, I was just being lazy. The three-headed EIC was already made last year and ready to go. Kaitlin, however, is the only former EIC to get a shout out in my goodbye letter.

    ah the smear campaign. somewhere in that office is my retaliatory picture of drew dressed as a roman, celebrating his role in the crucification of christ.

    those were the days indeed!

    I'm there in spirit. And no, I don't think it's some sort of sexist plan to keep me out of the Nexus records. Maybe.

  5. The comment field for this post has become like some kind of Nexus higher-up reunion. Only sober. I think.

    Hey, remember Barb?
