    - He once caught a halibut the size of a Toyota Prius.

    Is this what we're doing now?

    Facts about Vallejo:
    - She invented the Macarena.
    - But she still doesn't know what the hokey pokey is all about.
    - She is, in fact, allergic to cheese.
    - She legitimately enjoys "Dancing with the Stars."
    - She gives tours to American visitors and trolls them with "facts" such as Germany having outlawed anger and swearing, and in Austria it is a crime to eat Polish sausage.
    - She is a dual.
    - She looks better than you do.
    - She wears her baseball caps backwards (Yankees fan.)
    - She remembers when "Internet forums" just meant Usenet and was part of the Cabal (there is no Cabal.)

    Two of the above statements are true.

    So essentially, you're both duals of the same user who is probably Cass. Got it.

    I honestly considered just posting "Yes." in the thread that asks "Have you met any WF member in real life?" only to fuck with them. I've posted on a few forums in the past and I don't think any of those were as obsessed with duals.

    Weird Al wanted to do a Paul McCartney parody of "Live And Let Die" called "Chicken Pot Pie".
    Paul said no, since he's a vegetarian and that wouldn't be right.

    Yeah, but Troll Kingdom at least has a valid reason for the obsession.

    This is going to be extremely embarrassing if I'm wrong, but I'd bet some nontrivial amount of money and/or the reputation of my linguistic intuition that these two aren't Cass.

    I have to admit that that seems very likely. The mere fact that I know it isn't so hardly even convinces me in the face of all the indications to the contrary.

    I have never posted on WordForge before registering this account.

    Now, you have to consider whether my statements are trustworthy, or if I am simply a dual who is lying to you.

    May I consider a slice of pizza instead?

    What's there to consider? If the question is "pizza," the answer is always "yes."

    I would have guessed Packard, too, but I'm privy to some information that points elsewhere. Admittedly, I only have theories about who they are, but I have strong ideas about who they aren't.

    That's just what Packard wants you to think so you won't blow up the board in an attempt to ban him.

    I was going to say they were a display of Federal Farmer's secretive intelligence, but even I can't do that with a straight face. :(

    Today I've learned that it amuses me to see Oldfella's blood pressure increase. Debating seems to exhaust him.

    You know how to cure that?

    Cheese from the future. Honest.

    My blood pressure and pulse rate are in the basement, along with my "bad" cholesterol level. The people who can raise my blood pressure are shitty drivers, people who block doorways, and bags of food that tear all the way down the side so you can't ever seal them back up, so you have to get a big storage bag, but you forgot to get storage bags on the way home, so you try to get a clothes pin but who the fuck can find a clothes pin when you need one?

    Just don't shoot me in the back when I've mocked you. It's not self-defense if all you need to do to stop the ridicule is to stop posting nonsense.

    My guess is definitely old posters under newnames, and they seem to know each other as well and are too familiar with the style of the place. But, hey, fair do's to them. Maybe they want to shake off a past reputation.

    Maybe I should revive Toilet Duck...
