Not because I care, or even because everybody probably already thought he was dead. No, merely in order to be the first person to post this captivating news.

Don't be alarmed, this is just a nod to a thread Cranky posted yesterday.

I know it's not really in the spirit of ChitChat to offer an explanation in this manner, but klarkinhistrep really made me nervous for a second there. I don't want anyone else having palpitations.

Eulogy for a Misanthrope.

It is hard to put in words, how most of us feel about the untimely lack of passing of MisterCranky. When word first spread out some of us were elated (Derk for instance is no doubt re-corking Champagne bottles as I type this), others merley giggly. MisterCranky was many things to many people. All of them bad. It is not as if he didn't do nice things, he did, but they were far out shadowed by his vast wall of vile putridity.

MisterCranky may not be dead, but many people still Moon over the fact that he isn't. In a world where shadow covers every square inch, Cranky was the ultimate role model for us all. So take a moment, pour yourself a tall class of Scotch neat, and then allow a single naked tear to fall into your glass. For Cranky is still with us, and for that, we can all be thankless.

Oh, I thought maybe you were just hoping he got a good night sleep.

Well, I'm glad he at least lived long enough to see his microbadge get created. Even if he's not dead yet, I'm glad of that.

Wow, that's really sad. What was he, in his early forties or so? I tell you, it makes you think. One day a person is here and the next...wow.

This one hits me hard because he was kind of like a brother to me...not the ordinary boring kind of brother who you see on holidays and borrow money from, but that special kind of brother that you never meet or talk to on the phone or even really see a clear picture of, just that one picture with Pikachu, except maybe it was Photoshopped because I don't think Pikachu is a real person, or at the very least he's not really that tall.

I think what I will remember most is the laughter. Also, Cranky was a good speller. I like that in an internet acquaintance.

If anyone wants to talk or reminisce feel free to PM me and we can just rap or whatever. You can also send me any stories or photos you have and maybe I'll put together a scrapbook or something.

Let's all hang together gang, because life is short. Particularly for people who eat a lot of bacon.

Ya know, I kinda expected Michael Jackson to rise last Sunday to start the Zombie Apocalypse. Hmm. My dismembering of my family (for my own protection) might have been premature. But now I hear about MisterCranky and, well, let's just say I'm checking my calendar.

In that case, y'all can rest easy. You'll be seeing both Cranky and me for a good long time!

It's always a shame when someone we are aware of goes off into the Great Waxy Clump, but try to remember that he was kind of a prick. Also, he was possibly the most overrated actor of our generation. It takes some of the sting out.
