Your free laugh today: George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina

Posted under: bad language, Gender, happy endings, wankers, weirdness, women's history

Via Echidne, we learn that Tbogg has discovered that MRAs don’t understand how social media or the intertoobz work.  Also:  they have totally crap spelling and punctuation:

Misunderstanding how the Twitter works, George Tierney of Greenville South Carolina seemed to think he was using his “inside voice” when speaking (tw@tting) to [Sandra] Fluke on Twitter only to find out, in a very round-about way, that she elected to retweet to her 36,000 followers what George Tierney of Greenville South Carolina had to say to her and she only did this because she is obviously racist against douchebags who like to shout stuff at ladies on the internet because, as we like to say: virtual manhood is better than no manhood at all.

Anyway, that is where I came in when I screen-capped the whole exchange and made a post out of it, which brings us to last week when George Tierney of Greenville South Carolina decided to google himself on the internet and OH HOLY $HIT! he is now kind of semi-famous for Doing Internet Swears At Ladies and now that all that money he spent on eHarmony is just f^(king wasted because ladies will not want to go on a date with him ever ever again besides the fact that all he ever wants to talk about is golf which is like the third gayest sport ever. Besides, also: boring.

Just click and behold, but beware:  there be dragons swearsof the See You Next Tuesday variety.  Everyone who has a blog, please put up a post to notify all of your readers (especially those who may be golfers and/or who live in South Carolina) to beware of George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina and his potty fingers.

You’re welcome, Mr. George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina!  (Please note the correct spelling and punctuation of “you’re.”)

Speaking of conservative intellectual history:  as promised, I’ve picked up a vintage copy of God and Man at Yale (1951) by Wililam F. Buckley, whose ideas are pretty thin and shopworn even in 1951, but whose prose is nearly flawless and his spelling and punctuation above reproach.  I guess those godless collectivists who taught Buckley managed to squeeze in some effective writing instruction amidst their Keynesian this and atheistic that along the way.  Bravo, all of you bygone Yale proffies!  I aspire to contribute to the education of such a distinguished alumnus as Buckley in my career.

    Clueless fuckewaddes like George Tierney, Jr., of Greenville, South Carolina, are what make the Internet worth existing.

    I miss the point. Is anything here new? Don’t we see it everyday? When did we last listen to a talk show?

    Extra news: Iraq has oil.

    koshembos: there’s nothing new here other than a half-a$$ed effort to googlebomb George Tierney, Jr., of Greenville, South Carolina.

    But not to worry: no one reads my stupid blog.

    Can’t remember how or where (other than New York City) or under what circumstances, but I was in the studio audience the night Allard Loewenstein totally destroyed William Buckley on the taping of his own (Buckley’s, that is) t.v. show, whatever it was called, back in 1968, I think it was. This was the second greatest TV-TKO I ever saw, just slightly below watching a young Charles Rangel take out David Stockman in four rounds on the McNeil-Lehrer News Hour in 1981, but that was only on the actual broadcast version. Who will remember what they were doing the night they got this re-tweet? Or, at least, that they got this re-tweet?

    Is George Tierney, Jr., of Greenville, South Carolina real or some well crafted parody? He must be real—you can’t make this stuff up.

    @Historiann-
    I happened upon your site during a Google search on this astoundingly eloquent man. Kudos to you for running an excellent site. As I don’t use twitter, I am hoping to contribute to the Google bomb using Facebook. This guy is a total misogynist and a Grade A asshat.

    I ran across your site too by searching for “George Tierney.” I didn’t even search for George Tierney Jr or George Tierney Jr of Greensville, South Carolina. So this jerk is getting you more readers if your comment that no one reads your blog anyway.

    It is so nice when the bully becomes the bullied! I guess someone posted his address and phone number in Tbogg’s comments and it sounded like he got a few calls before the post was removed.

    Good luck with climbing “the google” ranks!

    Same as Eric.
    Landed a first page search here with a mere “George Tierney”

    Onward and upwards!

  9. Digger on 22 May 2012 at 5:23 am #

    This is all kinds of wow. Thanks, H’Ann!

  10. Digger on 22 May 2012 at 5:27 am #

    PS: for more fun, his Twitter byline (that little piece where you put something about yourself) is “stfu and mind your own business.” Ahahahahaha!

  11. Lance on 22 May 2012 at 6:04 am #

    I couldn’t look away! He is quite the creative foulmouth. And dumb as a bag of hammers.

  12. Not George Tierney of Greenville, SC on 22 May 2012 at 7:12 am #

    Wait, are we talking about George ‘male escort’ Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina, or George ‘goatse’ Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina?

  13. Historiann on 22 May 2012 at 7:31 am #

    Yes–that George Tierney.

  14. That's Grantastic! on 22 May 2012 at 8:05 am #

    Hey, George Tierney Jr, of Greenville, SC, is on LinkedIn. He apparently earns a living selling other people’s labor at bargain prices through a staffing agency.

    It’s confusing, though: “Sunland Staffing inc”[sic] has a crack twitternet expert like George Tierney Jr responsible for its business development, yet its website …yeesh.

    Wow–that’s pretty cutting-edge web design, for 1994.

    This whole thing reminds me of when Dr. Laura Schlessinger both insisted that her bare nekkid pRony pictures weren’t her while simultaneously demanding that the internets give her pictures back to her. All of them.

    But that was back in the 1990s, which gives her more of an excuse I think than George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina.

    Trust me your blog has several orders of magnitude more readers than does mine.

  17. Lance on 22 May 2012 at 10:38 am #

    He closed his Twitter account. Sigh. I will miss the pottymouth of George Tierney of Greenville, South Carolina.
