    Someone who got banned for being a pompous, but sometimes funny, jackass.

    Not to be overly lawyerly and semantic, but I would never have thought to call vanity pompous. He was pretty down-to-earth, and in a lot of ways more sincere than many, since he rarely self-censored and sometimes expressed things that others would think but feel uncomfortable saying.

    But he also could be genuinely offensive on matters of race, sexuality, etc. I personally found that he rarely if ever displayed the kind of meanness that sometimes is exhibited by people who nevertheless couch their views more obliquely, and that for me made his excesses more tolerable. But I also understand how others could find the things he said intolerable.

    Vanity's flatuence/crap thread brought many here to tears. Material like that cannot be topped. He should be glad he left on such a high note.

    I don't recall him as being down-to-earth. He thought he was god's gift to women, for one. Although he gets credit for admitting himself as such.

    Vaclav - I am sure that Connie would not be adverse,[​IMG] to a meeting in the beer garden. You could start, by weaning him off his awful choice, in drinks. Some Pilsner, perhaps, and slivovic if necessary. Then may you make the introduction, to Hector's wife....

    That sounds a good idea, as the 1st step for, his spiritual cleaning. Also I recommend, to wear a 3 piece tweed, in the summer to remove, the toxics of the, previous avatars. .

    Still, i grew to love him like a hilarious, retarded brother.
    That made Coca-Cola come out my nose![​IMG]

    And I wouldn't mind seeing vanity back, either.

    Sometimes he was so funny you'd think he was putting everyone on, but then he'd say something blatantly inflammatory and dig himself in a hole in a way that no one with any guile would do.

    Poor Connie...

    He came here in the search of understanding co-fanatics in his substitutory/compensatory sartorial search to distract his mind out of his failure with girls... and he ended first deeply inmersed in gayness and eventually banned [​IMG]

    I hope the shame of it doesn't drive him to drink.
