The Narcissistic Superhighway

Every once in a while, I like to Google myself, despite the warnings that I'll go blind.

By far, the majority of hits on my name are sports related. I'm not a jock, you understand. It just turns out that there's some guy (or maybe several guys) named Chris Irby playing football out there. God bless them for taking up the slack.

As far as legitimate links to my name, the majority of those either stem from my online comic, or from my contributions to the Top Five list.

And then, there are some odd ones floating around out there...

  • This guy obviously thought enough of something I said to include me in a list of funny quotes. I have no idea who he is, but I do enjoy basking in the appreciation of anonymous people.
  • Here I am, waxing nerdy on my favorite comic book, Hellblazer.
  • I have no idea what this one is, but I'm pretty sure he's not talking about me.
  • And finally, here's me trolling on the X-Files newsgroup back in 1999. Actually, most everybody else thought it was pretty funny but for some reason, a girl named Jen (is not a potato) got really mad at me. Anyway, it's good to know that this stuff will still be a matter of public record long after I'm dead.

I am so laughing about Jen (is not a potato). My god, WTF is that? That is just so fucking funny. I may have to get a new blog and call it that.

Also, your Top Five quote was hysterical! Shit, you should copyright it or something. I used to do Hecklers Online (HO) on AOL years and years ago (1995-96, I think). God that was great fun. They had a Top Ten list like this but also live chat rooms where they'd let you improv on things they were talking about. You'd win free hours on AOL if the hosts thought you were funny. I used to win a lot of hours. Once I even got to go on the theoretical AOL "stage" with a host. Ooooooo. Then when AOL went to unlimited the whole free hours thing lost its appeal.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I was googling myself, under the guise "Jen (is not a potato)" when I found your blog. It's funny that you think I was really mad about your trolling, because I was just exposing the trolling and then goofing off with Bill K. But I think it is very cool that I'm involved in one of your 5 hits on the internet. Isn't life funny? Isn't this comment Not funny?
