It's still June 1st (for another 29 mins) here in the UK, and as I'm the acting Overlord until KROC gets back, my timezone becomes the important one! KROC will be let back in in 28 mins, not a second earlier.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my mum and dad, my girlfriend, cameraman, sound engineer and all the film crew. The wardrobe, make up and all them lovely ad people. It's been a helluva ride

However, now I go back to my menial position as overlord of Europe. Ah well. At least I can steal lots of French wine, Italian cars and a couple of yatchs from Monte Carlo. Vive le KROC!

I checked his profile but it is not back yet. Are you sure he's back now or soon? How did you know he's back?

Big777jet,

He's not back YET. He gets back (is allowed back in) on June 2. It will be June 2 in GMT in 23 minutes, and then he will be allowed back in.

Regards,
TB

*That is why I figured we could start this party early, so this thread'll be in full swing when he gets back.

Don't break out the bubbly just yet guys. Johan is the one that has to manually reactivate his username; it doesn't happen automatically. And of course this will happen when he finds the time, hopefully today as the moderators have requested.

I shall bite my tongue, because no matter what is said, there are 2 school of thought. What some may call "crossing the line" many others would call something different. ANYWAY, in celebration of KROC being back, and taking things over from 777236ER, who held down the world (somewhat) in my absence, I have created a new Parody Song. It is Eminem's "Without Me" KROC Remix (Clean).

*The following is nothing but fun. No harm is meant to anyone. There is nothing personal in it or to it. I know even saying this, many will fail to take this in, but I could not pass on the parody. Also, I have cleaned this version up to make it acceptable for posting on the forum boards. Anyone wishing to have the unedited version, feel free to email me.*

"Without Me" KROC Remix

"Clovis the French, real name no gimmicks" -> Leftseat86

[Intro]
Two forum moderators go round the outside;
round the outside, round the outside
{*scratches*}
Two forum moderators go round the outside;
round the outside, round the outside
{*scratches*}

Guess who's back
Back again
KROC's back
Tell a friend
Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back
guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back.. {*KROC hums*}

[Verse One: KROC]
I've created a monster, cause nobody wants to see Mike Cialini no more
They want KROC, they stuck on me like a sliver
Well if you want KROC, this is what I'll give ya
A little bit of humor mixed with some hard rumors
About KROC's demise but I'll kill that notion quicker
than a shock when I get another post erased
by the moderator when I'm not co-operating
When I'm rockin the forum while they're moderating (hey!!)
You waited this long, now stop debating
Cause I'm back, I'm on the rag and on people I'm baggin
I know that you got a job Mr. Lundgren
but your moderators are killing all of our fun
So the M-O-D's won't let me be
or let me be me, so let me see
They try to shut me down on A.net
But it feels so empty, without me
So, come on and dip, wipe the tears off your lips
Forget that, tears in your eyes, and this is on the rise
And get ready cause the truth is about to get crazy
I just finished my suspension and you know it didn't phase me

[Chorus: KROC]
Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody, just follow me
Cause we need a little, controversy
Cause it feels so empty, without me
I said this looks like a job for me
So everybody, just follow me
Cause we need a little, laughter see
Cause it feels so empty, without me

[Verse Two: KROC]
Little Posters, kids feelin rejected
Embarrassed their crazy opinions aren't universally accepted
They start feelin like lost in-betweeners
'til someone comes along on a mission and suggests deletion
But I'm a visionary, I see a vision of a forum
Could start a revolution, ridding it of boredom
A rebel, so just let me revel and bask
in the fact that I got everyone hatin my ass
And it's a disaster, such a catastrophe
for you to suggest deletion of me
Well I'm back, na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
{*bzzt*} Get your first class membership and come on in
enter in, I'll end up under your skin like a splinter
The center of attention, and my motives are not sinister
I'm interesting, I'll bust you up like wrestling
Infesting in your topics and threads just suggesting
{*bzzt*} Testing, attention please
Feel the tension, soon as someone mentions me
Here's my ten cents, my two cents is free
A nuisance, who suggested my deletion, what you want to delete me chief?

[Chorus]

[Verse Three: KROC]
A-tisket a-tasket, I go tit for tat with
anybody who's talkin this junk, that junk
Pick a name, you can get your *** kicked
worse than them little Boston Celtics did
And somebody else? You can get stomped by a bumrush
You whatever age you want to be ---------------, forget me
You don't know me, you're too phony, let go
It's over, nobody likes you as a human so
Now let's go, just gimme the signal
I'll be there with a whole list full of new insults
I been dope, humorous with a keyboard
Long before I moved back to the Eastern Seaboard
But sometimes the stuff just seems
everybody only wants to single out me
So this must mean I'm in-sul-ting
But it's just me, I'm just joking
No I'm not the first king of controversy
And I'm not the worst poster who's been called dastardly
to do net humor so perfectly
with a style that creates so much jealousy
(Hey!!) Here's a concept that sucks
Ten Thousand A.net posters want me to get run
But no matter how many fish in the sea
It'll be so empty, without me

[Chorus]

{*KROC sings this twice:
"A.net-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la"*}

Saloth Sar,

The great baby you see there is not yet out of his swaddling-clouts.

William Shakespeare, Hamlet


And just in general,

True, we might never have arrived, but the fact is we did. If only people thought a little more about it, they would see that life is not worth worry about so much.

Lermontov, A Hero of Our Time

Anyhoo, welcome back KROC. Expect the lawsuit from Eminem's label in a few hours.

How come you haven't been to parody site lately. It's a good alternative if you want no holds barred "discussion". There you can be yourself without worries.  Big grin

Welcome Back KROC

Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.


Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.


Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)


Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've hot him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.




P.S. I tried to find the appropriate background music but apparently nobody has made a MIDI of the theme song from Welcome back Kotter Sad

I'm not Dennis Rodman because I never banged Madonna. I'm not Rodney Dangerfield because I never went back to school when I was 80. Actually I am just KROC.

If you feel the need to associate me with somebody, how about Chris Rock, Sam Kinesion, Dice Clay or George Carlin. I would have said the alight himself, Ken Caminiti, but I don't want to be perceived as a steroid user.

Since I have missed some of the opening matches of World Cup play, I was unable to post this on Friday, but it could not go by without me slapping it up here.

Friday, on the Jim Rome radio show, he broke out with the news of France losing to Senegal. Now Rome like the rest errrrr most of America hates Soccer, and "France surrendering" to everything is a always a big part of the emailers on the show. But he had the best line Friday. He said maybe Senegal learned German in the off season and caught France by suprise. Its a few days later, but I am still laughing over that.

Anyway, now back the the topic at hand, my return.
