Holy Shit! Knitters And Crocheters Totally Love PhysioProf! (UPDATED, AGAIN)

April 8, 2008

PhysioProf is getting a stream of visits from a link in this post on “Ravelry”, “a knit and crochet community”:

http://ravelry.com/discuss/lazy-stupid-and-godless/155804/1-25

PhysioProf happens to love knitters and crocheters, and is very distraught at the possibility that knitters and/or crocheters think he is lazy, stupid, and/or godless. But maybe these knitters and/or crocheters are actually posting something like “there are some really nasty lazy-ass fucking asshole stupid shitbag godless wackaloon douchecornets out there on the Internet, but PhysioProf sure isn’t one of them, and we totally love him!!!11!!!!”

This “ravelry” place is subscription only, so if anyone can get in there, please let me know if the knitters and/or crocheters love or hate PhysioProf. Because it is really important to know who loves, and who hates, PhysioProf.

UPDATE: Apparently my suspicion that the knitters and/or crocheters love PhysioProf is totally true!!!1!1!!!!11!1!11!! Commenter Cat is a subscriber at Ravelry, and reports in her comment that “knitters and crocheters love you PhysioProf. At least the members of the lazy, stupid and godless group do.”

Furthermore, commenter Dr. Jekyll is now considering the possibility of knitting PhysioProf a nice present!

Maybe you have a fan club, and they’re all planning on sending you a group-knitted present–I’m seeing a giant tea cozy, or balaclava or similar, perhaps with “Knitting Douchecornet Wackaloons [heart] PhysioProf” emblazoned on it.

FWIW, I knit AND quilt.

[pause]

And now I think I know my next project.

PhysioProf would totally wear a wool beanie-type cap emblazoned with “Knitters [heart] PhysioProf!” I’m just saying.

UPDATE 2: And by the way, just to let all the knitters and/or crocheters who are visiting here part of why PhysioProf loves knitters and/or crocheters so much: beloved PhysioGrandma crocheted many an afghan for PhysioProf, PhysioMom, PhysioDad, and PhysioSis when she was alive. She was a wonderful loving person.

    I’m not a subscriber, but I’d guess, based on this, that they love PhysioProf.

  4. Nan Says:

    Admit it. You just want to know if they’ve posted any good banana warmer patterns. You want them to knit you a custom codpiece.


  5. My grandmother knitted tons of stuff for us and she also cursed with the same vulgarity, creativity, and frequency as PhysioProf – my guess is that knitters have deep admiration and respect for the PhysioProf.

  6. Amanda Says:

    I just checked the thread and I think they love you – the discussion is mostly about expelled, not you specifically.

    This is a group who calls themselves lazy, stupid and godless. I just joined :-)

  7. Cat Says:

    Nah, you needn’t worry, we want you to be lazy stupid and godless! It is “The group for hardworking, smart, and sometimes spiritual people who have a bad attitude!”

    As a subscriber to Ravelry I can see the comments and it is part of a discussion about evolution and ID which went into the story PZ and his expulsion from “Expelled” and they are recommending that we go and read your post on it

    Ridiculous Demented Right-Wing Whackaloon Theocratic Douchemonkeys Fuck Up Big Time

    which is followed by:

    “He’s got a totally balanced and moderate summary of the situation with tons of links.

    Now that’s a guy who belongs in LSG.”

    So knitters and crocheters love you PhysioProf. At least the members of the lazy, stupid and godless group do.

  8. Cat Says:

    Damn, beaten to the punch by Amanda.

    I’ll see you on Ravelry at LSG, Amanda!

  9. carbolicious Says:

    We actually COULD knit you a custom codpiece. We have that technology.

  10. Bethany Says:

    As a charter member of LSG, I can assure you that you are loved beyond measure.

    When we are not fawning over the writing of Dawkins or the musing of the delicious Mr. Hitchens, we can often be found quoting you.

    My cod prefers to be free.

  12. bikemonkey Says:

    Point of order: Knowledge of whether one prefers to go commando or not is TMI my friend.


  13. —“We actually COULD knit you a custom codpiece. We have that technology”—
    You have the technology, but do you have enough wool?

    And BikeMon, thanks for setting PP straight on basic nettiquette/TMI.


  14. -“Do you have enough wool?”-

    More to the point, I’m not sure the proposed motto “Knitters [heart] PhysioProf” could possibly be accomodated on such an item. Maybe if the font were 6 pt?

  15. PhysioProf Says:

    Hey! Wait just a second! That’s not funny!!

  16. Cat Says:

    Damn, so a willy warmer wouldn’t work either?

    All this stuff about knitted cods has THIS Larue intrigued.

    Alas, so much cod, so little wool?

    BikeMonkey, YOU got a nice place too!

    I’m likin these new bloggies I never kunew were here.

    And all this friendly needling on this wooly thread has become quite a stitch in my side.

    My mom knitted bless her, my wife does too . . . she makes blankies (is that knitting? Where does quilt work fall into all this), and the most bitchen brown and light brown heavy wool poncho I’ve ever seen.

    Damn thing weighs more n that neighbor’s damn kat that keeps starin at me from the fence, but it’s kept me warm at fest jams 2am in the spring at 4k Ft. in the Sierra Nevada.

    More n that damn kat can do for me. I’ts GOTTA be 15lbs or more. Gonna break our fence. Damn kat.

  19. cindylou Says:

    lsg’ers love you. we can make beanies that look like codpieces… i’m just sayin’.

  20. littlem Says:

    I crochet. I taught myself. I even won a prize for a pattern!

    And I am getting a fast crush on PPPhd here just from the unique spin on the swearing. It’s like a game show.

    Does that count?

    It’s all good. This bitchvulture is multifibrous in her needlework. Ravelry seems to be mostly knit and crochet. Good to know about the LSG group.

    Kevin, of the Deep Sea News ScienceBlog, posted a challenge to knit (or crochet) a marine polychaete called Osedax. The males are basically tiny spermbags, and live inside the female worm-tube. So I crocheted an Osedax, it’s utterly hideous, but Kevin should receive it soon, and I’m sure he’ll love it.

    There’s some weird-ass shit in the ocean.
