What Are Your IMAO Memories?

So what do you remember from ten years of IMAO? And what are your favorite posts?

And why don’t you go through the archives here and at the old version of the site and try and find some forgotten gems and post them in the comments here. I’d do it, but you probably aren’t as busy and important as me.

  1. I loved the Hellbender story. It got weird towards the end, but I still enjoyed it.

    [One day I plan to revisit that and rewrite it from scratch as a full novel since I love those characters. I’ll probably make it more a straight comedy, though. But first I’m going to get Superego published. -Ed.]

  2. I enjoyed The Limey and the scary liberal monkey that always threatened to bite off our faces.

    [He threatened to eat your eyeballs and turn them into poo and then throw the poo at you. Get your facts straight. -Ed.]

  3. If I think about it long enough, I can still make myself laugh just thinking about your Olbermann YouTube and how much fun you must have had making it – and how much you must despise that bastard. And those 2007-8 Romney videos cracked me up. And your stick art. And Scary Evil Monkey (where’d he go?). And your In My World (particularly about Cheney and Rumsfeld). And Harvey’s Newish Fakery – more succinct and regular than Burge’s stuff since he’s rebuilding cars all the time. And where the hell is Basil these days?!

    You’re just goofier than snöt, Frnak! (Or deer guts on a doorknob, whichever is funnier.)

  4. The Olberman clip is a classic, along with the “In My World”s. What the world needs now is the retrurn of the Rumsfeld Strangler and his Death Robot trained to kill enemies of America, especailly reporters.

  5. Arafat returning his Nobel prize because it was worthless after Jimmy Carter got one.

    We need the return of Chomps….I see Eric Holder being chased by Chomps…the dog that gets angry at the sky….

  6. Wearing my “Nuke The Moon” T shirt to the Iowa State Fair last year,
    and getting a thumbs-up and “Cool shirt,man.” from an aged long haired hippie.
    “You should check out the website, IMAO.US.”
    “I will.Thanks!”

  7. I remember back before Al Gore invented the Interwebs, and Frank J would type his blog using an old Royal typewriter and lots of sheets of paper with carbon paper stuck in between. And then they would be stapled and mailed, and each time you received a new IMAO in the mailbox you’d have to type a witty response with a bunch of paper and carbon paper stuck in between and mail them back. But, we didn’t mind. It was only a penny for a stamp, and back then the post office actually delivered mail without first destroying it, and your neighborhood postman was mildly friendly.

    Nukes were hard to come by and no one believed you could ever really get to the moon, so Frank J just envisioned dropping a really big bomb on Trenton, New Jersey. Still a viable option should nuking the moon ultimately prove impossible.

    Of course, back then liberals believed in tax cuts and killing foreigners who wanted to go to war with us, and there was no such thing as political correctness, so our disagreements were not nearly as severe. Nonetheless, Frank would blog about the New Deal, using quotes and analogies from Guy Lombardo, Red Skelton or Amos & Andy and it was quite hilarious. Those were good times…good times.

  8. I will always remember “Frank The Artist” and “Hate Filled Lefty” getting beat to a pulp (by even Sarah K. if I remember correctly), or terrorists getting reduced to small piles of smoldering ashes by S.M.I.T.E.
    Also, your treatment of The Limey was epic, and of course the “Nuke the Moon” post was fantastic and why I check to see what’s new here every day.
