Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign first appeared three years ago today.

ANNOUNCER: From Westminster, it’s time for—

SOUND: Cell phone rings once.

JOHNNY: Johnny Atsign.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) Hey, Johnny, are keeping your head above water?

JOHNNY: (Chuckles) Yeah. It’s not that hard. I’m back home.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) Did you find what we were looking for?

JOHNNY: That and more. This is going to open up several intriguing avenues for follow up.

MUSIC: Theme up and under.

ANNOUNCER: The Lickspittle Broadcasting System presents W. J. J. Hoge in the transcribed adventures of the man with the action-packed Twitter account, America’s fabulous free-lance Internet investigator …

JOHNNY: Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign!

MUSIC: Theme up to music out.

JOHNNY: The following is partial extract of the tweets sent and received during the Eyes Upon You Matter.

JOHNNY TWEETS: (SYNTH VOICE) @[redacted] Deep Vote was right about following the money.

JOHNNY: It’s good to be back home. I’ve been traveling for the past few weeks following leads. Those travels have taken me to some interesting places. I wound up coming back from overseas through Houston.

SOUND: Airport background.

ICE AGENT: Welcome back, Mr. … um .. Atsign. Do you have anything to declare?

JOHNNY: No. It was just a quick business trip.

ICE AGENT: With lots of interesting stops according to these visa. Hmmm. OK. Everything looks in order. Here’s your passport. Next.

SOUND: Airport background out.

JOHNNY: It was an easy connection from Houston to Austin where I was able to do some research looking into records on file with the Texas Secretary of State. That led to [redacted].

[redacted]

ANNOUNCER: Summer is more that half-over. Cool weather isn’t that far off, so it’s time to start thinking about new clothes for autumn. Either a Team Lickspittle hoodie or a The Grand Hog sweatshirt would be a great way to keep warm, and spending money at The Hogewash Store is a great way to support Team Lickspittle. Stop by today and spend some of your hard earned cash. Or hit the Tip Jar. They’re both ways you can support the Team.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) (Fading up) … so you were able to make a connection to the nine thousand?

JOHNNY: Yeah, on both ends.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) So it looks like the information that [redacted] is true.

JOHNNY: That’s not ironclad, but it’s the way I’d bet, at least for now.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) What do you think [redacted] will do?

JOHNNY: I’m just a lowly internet investigator. I’ll let the big shots decide. But maybe I’ll buy some popcorn futures.

[redacted]: And you think the other piece ties in too?

JOHNNY: Probably.

[redacted]: (Telephone Filter) OK. Send me your report, and I’ll pass it along.

JOHNNY TWEETS: @TheGrouch You really should have checked further.

ANNOUNCER: Now, here’s our star to tell you about next week’s intriguing episode of our story.

JOHNNY: Next week? Is someone doomed to repeat history? Join us, won’t you.

Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign!

MUSIC: Swell theme and under

ANNOUNCER: Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign, starring W. J. J. Hoge, is transcribed in Westminster. Be sure to join us next Monday, same time and URL, for the next exciting episode of Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign.

MUSIC: Theme up to music out.

ANNOUNCER: Johnny Atsign is a work of fiction. If anyone thinks it’s about him, he should read Proverbs 28:1.

Tune in every Friday at 6 pm Eastern Time for episodes of Blognet or Blogsmoke on alternating weeks. This is LBS, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System.

Here’s a question for the Gentle Reader to ponder? What do the following have in common? Maryland, Ukraine, Italy, Israel, and Connecticut?

And here’s an interesting factoid: Ukraine and the United State do not have an extradition treaty.

Meanwhile, as of 10:30 pm ET this evening—

      • I allowed the comment through moderation even though the originating IP address is not associated with the commenter’s email address (a academic email) because it is associated with a residential ISP in the same city as the school.

        If the commenter is the person associated with the email address, at least one of his published papers is related to work in an area in which Mrs. Hoge was working while pursuing a M.L.A. degree in Landscape Architecture.

        • Well, to claim that Kimberlin stories detract from this blog is either absolute cluelessness about the blog’s history, or an attempt to aid Team Kimberlin. Either one will draw a level of PL&M.

    • As the inestimable Q said, “Au contraire mon frère!”

      The Kimbernator fascinates me. A grifting highschool-educated liberal with no means of visible support pulling down $400K+ per year through donations to non-profits running semi-circles around Maryland judges is a fascinating story. His collection of bungling incompetent friends just adds color.

      I hang on to see how the story ends. Brett Kimberlin is a iceberg; what you see is only a fraction of what’s there.

      If John doesn’t write a book about all this I stand by my (prior) commitment to help him do so.

  1. My mouse comes with a handy roller which allows me to scroll quickly beyond things I do not wish to see. The fellow with his name at the top of the blog can choose his content. I only read the Kimberlin stuff.

    • Yes, I’m much the same way, regarding which posts I pay the most attention to.

      I also have some people who I like to read even when they’re commenting on a post on another topic. You’re one of the ones whose comments I’d make especially sure to check!
