Today we begin a special hazing period at Peach Pundit. We’ve made Tyler Burgess our errand boy. You’ll be seeing the innocuously named “Tyler” on the front page.

We intend to do lots of hazing. It should be plenty fun. Icarus has decided his schedule is just too demanding and he needed to be able to have someone else take the bullets for him on occasion.

Also, we did make Tyler sign the affidavit that all he saw was Casey Cagle getting his shoes tied by someone else. He swears that’s all he saw.

As the session starts, by the way, we’ll be circulating blank affidavits among all the staff at the Capitol so everyone can sign affidavits as to what they saw, thought they saw, did not see, or whatever.

Should be great fun. Then we can all slide them under Casey Cagle’s door.

Don’t you know only us rural folk are here to haze him now? Everyone else is in Atlanta.

Congrats Tyler!

Tyler, we expect to see at least 1500 marbles posted in this thread by 9:30 tomorrow morning.

Did he also swear an oath to support the only female candidate for governor who is fit to carry the ethics nuclear suitcase because she isn’t a man. 🙂

is *is* an active Handel supporter, and has been for quite a while…

Can we nail them to the LG’s office door like the 95 theses?

I’m thrilled that Tyler is now a Peach Punditeer. Major congrats and kudos, my friend.

I’ll start the count off: 1 marble…

2 marbles…

3 marbles….

FOUR marbles!

Five GOLDEN marbles!!! Wait….Christmas is over with…

6 marbles.

7 marbles….

Tyler is the newbie and we’re doing his work for him?

8 marbles.

Well, doesn’t he have to physically collect and count the marbles?

9 marbles.

That’ll learn him. I know where these marbles have been.

10 marbles.

11 marbles….

12 marbles.

13 marbles.

42 marbles

You all are slightly strange, you do know that, right?

Someone should just write a computer program to create the rest of the marbles. While we wait for the inevitable project delays…

42 Marbles.

42 is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, so I guess that’s why it was said twice. Enough silliness. I’ll continue my counting now….

43 marbles.

44 marbles.

45 marbles.

I’m working….I’m multi-tasking.

68 marbles.

69 marbles.

Haha,

Haha.

70 marbles.

Tyler losing his marbles combined with the legislators looking to see what we’re saying about them this morning seems to be choking the server.

May I suggest we surpress the dream thread here until prime time?

you’ve done turned tanalach din’chu

That seems reasonable. Now I won’t be under pressure to count more marbles.

Nathan, Tyler……so you know about the thread of dreams???

Tanalach grimaces down upon you.

We do know about the Thread of Dreams.

Congrats, Tyler!

So is Tyler affixed to your left or to your right hand?

Congratulations, Tyler! You’ll do great or . . . well, did you ever check to see whatever happened to previous front page posters? I think Jimmy Hoffa, Amelia Earheart and Judge Crater were all former front page posters who didn’t work out! Beware the Ides of March!

Tyler, why are you doing this? You seem a sensible young man.

I’ve lost my marbles. Now I’m finding them; one-by-one.

What do you call a group of 121 marbles anyway?

122 marbles

I’m doing this so Tyler will remain famous (or infamous) – possibly having a bust in some marbled hall . . .

or 123 pieces of marble cake.

In other news, the first ten buyers of PP ads get free use of the PP Intern for one-day of moving.

You are not a merciful man.

Chris

How about yard work?

Babysitting. For an entire weekend. Would be worth it to me as long as the kid were still alive at the end and not too traumatized.

I agree Chris please call I am interested yard work and babysitting! Hey Tyler no beer while babysitting.

Tanalach Media LLC cannot be held liable for any damage done to your child by Tyler babysitting, including, but not limited to, loathing of John Oxendine, support for hard currency, and a fanatical devotion to the Constitution.

He might make them count marbles.

124 marbles.

125 marbles.

one hundred twenty-six marbles

127 marbles

There is over 128 square feet of marble used for the floor of the State Capitol

The AJC is reporting that Tyler failed to pay taxes on his marbles for the last four years. His 128 marbles have been confiscated to cover back taxes and he has been assessed a 129 marble fine. When questioned about the marbles, Tyler began to claim his ignorance, but his statement was threadjacked (or is that statementjacked???)

There are 130 marbles who know the answer.

If a train is headed east carrying 131 marbles . . .

. . . and another train is headed west at 52 mph carrying 132 marbles . . .

. . . for 133 marbles can you tell me which train Duke Ellington would take?

One hundred and thirty four marbles

Combo breaker!

Does that mean 151 marbles?

No, that means I broke the combo. Have to start over.

Wrong. If you’ll refer to the original marbles post, you’ll notice that the marbles count continued growing despite others comments within the thread. There are no need for combos, they just look cool.

Ah, but you have failed to read Rule 7.5 of the Combo Breakers handbook. All combo breakers must be accepted and previous activities must be reset to zero.

I’m no programmer.

No programming is necessary. Just obey the rules.

As Mr. T (no, not you) has always said: “I pity the fool that ignores the combo breaker.”

152 marbles.

1 marble.

152 marbles + 1 marble = 153 marbles.

So,

154 marbles.

-154 marbles. 🙂

But I am an Accounting major. So…

Debit 309 marbles.

That’s 155 marbles.

I was a math major, so uh, wow, my brain just exploded.

There’s a reason this is best done between midnight and 4:30am, with only the assistance of Trader Joe.

Or when you are at work and your brain is about to explode.

Just reading this, my brain is about to explode.

Ken – no helping the pledges during their hazing. Tyler – you have to post all those marbles again yourself!

No.

Sorry, oh great one! 🙂

Can’t you just make him moderate John’s and Doug’s mutual animosity society? No, that’s too harsh – perhaps just beat him with an iron pipe.
