You guys may not remember, but almost 2 years ago we talked a lot about the United Fascist Union party. See these posts for the wonderful history:
Jack Grimes gave us much wonderful material (with plenty left untapped), including gems such as this one:
“It is a little known fact that cigarettes and tobacco have nothing to do with cancer. What really causes cancer is a lack of oxygen. So if stopping cancer is your thing, go plant a tree. Trees disperse oxygen. Better yet, plant a tobacco plant which gives off oxygen too. Then you can fight cancer while you enjoy your new hobby, smoking cigarettes you grew yourself with your own tobacco plants””
Yes, you read that correctly, now read it again.
Done laughing yet?
Anyhow, his name has crossed the back of my mind several times recently and I’ve been wondering… what ever happened to Jack Grimes? His old page hasn’t been updated in a long time and it’s hard to determine wether or not he still exists.
Today I decided to track him down. Sure enough, he’s still around. This time he has a wonderfully redesigned tripod site that indicates he will in fact be running for president in 2008. Ye-Ah!
After painfully browsing through his new site, I determined that although he is a certifiable nutcase, he deserves a much more accessible podium to speak from. While the nation should not vote for him, the nation should at the very least know who he is.
Where am I going with this? I am going to mail Mr. Grimes a letter offering him a better opportunity to speak his mind. Hosting is cheap, domain names are cheap, he shouldn’t be pushing himself down by hosting his site on tripod. I will offer the following:
- To host the official United Fascist Union Party website through the 2008 elections at Ramblewords.
- To design a completely new format for Mr. Grimes in order to make his information more accessible to the world.
- If he would like to register a proper domain name for his party, I will provide the hosting for this domain.
The only thing I will ask for in return is an honorary membership (without the monthly dues) to the United Fascist Union Party. This does not mean that I will vote for said party, just that I want to see what they send their new members.
Crazy? Yes. Fun? Absolutely. Good Material? We shall see. Got More Questions? No.
Give me a little bit of time to write up a proper* letter and I’ll post that when I send it. If you have suggestions or would also like to help, let me know.
*note how I used proper twice in this post… joy.
