The Godfather of Hipster Douchitude is Laughing at Pajama Boy, But On a More Nuanced and Correct Level

Home - by - December 19, 2013 - 13:15 America/New_York - 32 Comments

Posturing is the best word I can conjure up to describe Nick Gillespie.

Here’s his latest take on Pajama Boy.

Reason-

For many – arguably most – Americans, this guy is hipster douchitude on a cracker. Jeebus H. Christ, at least be swilling brandy. The whole packaging, including the Christmas postcard styling of the image, the infantilized image of man-child, the vaguely imperial “GetTalking” hashtag, etc., runs through me like months-old egg salad.

Some of the parodies and rewrites are genuinely funny and some are not ( the ones that reek of conservative insecurity about sexual identity strike me as their own form of unfortunate expression).

!snippy!

Got that.

Pajama Boy is a hipster douche, so, by all means, go after the guy on that level.

But it’s a very nuanced level. It’s a thin beam you have to walk.

You can mock his onesie. That’s funny. Destroy the guy.

You can mock the hipster doofus glasses. Sides aching! Verbally punch the douche.

You can talk about the whole thing being packaged in a Christmas postcard. (??? Not following. Don’t understand the funny. But let’s pounce the guy with that anyway.)

You can talk about him embracing his cocoa in an effete way. Hilarious!! Mock him until he contemplates suicide!

You can talk about him probably having a velcro butt flap on his jammies so he can quickly accommodate casual anonymous bus station sexual encoun… what’s that? I can’t?  Now I’m reeking of my conservative insecurity about sexual identity?

Fuck you, Gillespie. You reek of libertarian insecurity about the infantilization of man-children.

You can mock Niles Crane for being a fop, effete, persnickety, uncoordinated, emasculated, feminine; but don’t dare imply he might do the ultimate feminine thing.

That’s not funny. Stick to how he holds a cocoa mug.

    This is why Libertarians, for the most part, can not be counted upon when push comes to shove. Pun intended. they’re a large part of the reason Barky is in office right now.

    By the way, if you take out the obvious homosexuality of this little fruitcake, what is there to make fun of? everything funny about his stupid ass is based around the notion that he’s clearly getting jabbed in the ass on a regular basis.

    No, Betty. What’s funny is that he has all the earmarks of someone that isn’t traditionally masculine.
    Somehow, in Gillespie’s mind, that’s fodder.
    Stepping over the Gillespie line is something only he can explain.

    There are so many fronts on which to laugh at the pajama boy, the possibilities are endless.

    I would like to personally extend my heartfelt thanks to whomever in the Obama administration who decided pajama boy would be a good idea.

    All that I will say about Gillespies assertion that all the gay jabs at the Pajama boy are conservative insecurity about gender identity.

    Wolfermans bakery should hire pajama boy as their spokesman with this hashtag.

    Mock, mock, mock to your hearts content. But be careful – someone, somewhere will find it not “the right thing to say”.

    Stay out of my thoughts and my comments and my way of expressing myself. This is not like putting information out on a fact based plane – this is all opinion. OPINION! Opinions should free for all to express the way the author or speaker wishes to express them.

    Censorship of any opinion is wrong, wrong, wrong.

    LMAO – make sure you tweet that! Mr. Pinko will thank you.

    Fuck Gillespie. He was ridiculing the gayness of this whole ad himself. But when he does it, it’s hip and sophisticated? And when a conservative does it, it’s insecurity about sexual identity?

    Fuck you and the ass you rode in on. (feel free to jumble those words around)

    Gillespie is a libertarian if you completely ignore what the libertarian manifesto is supposed to be.

    A gay guy that understands he has to take the jokes, just as an effete guy that doesn’t pole-smoke has to take the jokes, is someone I respect a helluva lot more than Nick Dizzy Gillespie.

    In fact, my closest friend for a long period of time was just that kind of guy.

    A “libertarian” hand-picking select hands-off victim groups- I’ve seen it all now.

    So when NG calls the boy effeminate, it’s funny, and he’s manly, also *growl*.
    When everyone else does it, it’s not funny, and they’re afraid they’re ghey? Really?

    Maybe he’s projecting. lol.

    Not a fan of Gillespie. He’s always thought of himself as king of all libertarians and supreme know it all. I quit reading his stuff a while back. I get enough of the smug and choom ambiance from 0bama.

    And I don’t know what to make of this.
    The jury is still out. He’d have to explain himself.

    Jim Treacher, on Twitter, tweeted, in ALL CAPS, mind you, that the Dyke Dynasty graphic I did with Rachel Maddow was
    NOT FUNNY!!

    Now, if he is indeed serious, which I don’t know for sure, (he’s been nice to us in the past, in fact, he went to bat for me when a joke I did about Michelle Obama was frowned upon ((Obama got Michelle a stripper pole for the bedroom. Problem is, when she hangs onto the pole, tiny little bi-planes attack her.))), the absorption is nearly complete- “Conservatives” have been conditioned into accepting that there are “hands-off” topics and people just have to get fired for having their “impure thoughts” about certain subjects.
    Next up- Treacher condemns the condemnation of Muhammad.

    I’m getting the feeling that certain conservatives have forgotten that it is our duty to constantly test the 1st amendment, even if it gives them a queasy feeling in their tummmies that someone at the cocktail party might think of them as Neanderthal.

    Or, on the other hand he just may think it’s not funny. Which is fine. But as Pinko said to him, “who said it was supposed to be funny?”

    OK the Dyke Dynasty wasn’t intended to be “side achingly funny” in its entirety. If Treacher had READ the caption, he’d see how serious it was.
    The beard on Rick Maddow was just icing on the cake. It’s DYKE. The natural substitute for DUCK.
    Duh. That’s a play on words and it was funny.

    Although, Treacher may not have been able to see the whole thing since his eye is all swollen from getting beaten in the face recently. I had to unfriend him. I couldn’t take his whining about it anymore. Yeah, sucks that it happened, and I wish him well, but…

    Yes, MJA.
    The point of the graphic was to slam A&E, not dykes.
    The graphic said they were switching to a show that reflected CORRECT OPINIONS ONLY.

    There is a gay gestapo, and the henchmen include heterosexuals, wittingly or unwittingly.

    It seems to me that gay folk can do and say ANYTHING and they will never suffer the consequences.
    Take for instance Barack Obama, our first gay president.

    Gays can sneer about anything and it’s not only accepted, it’s charming, witty and insightful.

    At first I was all “DAMN YOU ALL FOR MAKING ME LOOK UP THIS SMEAR OF TWAZZLE SPUNK!!!”

    But once I found out he used to work for Teen Machine magazine where he ghost wrote that useful advice column for Alyssa Milano I perked right up.

    Mainly because I see no real way to live down the fact that he ghost wrote an advice column for Alyssa Milano. For Teen Machine.

    That sort of thing is fodder for snarkery and nipple twisting of the highest order.

    So good show to you all. Carry on and all that.

    Actual libertarians don’t really give a fuck about a persons sexual identity.We also don’t consider it an off-topic subject(since we don’t really care, see?).Gillespie isn’t really a libertarian as he doesn’t respect my right to have a differnt opinion than he.

    As for the beating he took. I have trouble feeling sorry for a dimwit who refuses to realize he lives in hostile country and who insists on taunting the bulls.

    Do I think he deserved to get beat? Hell no. Do I think he’d have been fine had he not taunted a thug? Obviously. Treacher stirkes me as a real dick.
