I think it might be easier to ask who isn’t fond of AstroChuck!!!

I just adore that goofy little character!!!

Bluefreedom's avatar

When it comes to a sharp wit and great off the cuff comments, he is definitely the number one performer here on Fluther, in my opinion.

Thanks for all the good laughs, AC. Keep em’ coming. :o)

LostInParadise's avatar

This has to be at least the third question I have seen devoted to AC. At his best, his humor keeps us from taking things too seriously. I join in tipping my hat to him.

mcbealer's avatar

Astro do your ears ring?

arnbev959's avatar

I <3 AstroChuck.

leeds's avatar

I watched Fluther for two weeks before joining in.
I saw quite a few socalled quips from astrochuck and having been asked the question above and reading the fluther guidelines this guy Astrochuck is an IDIOT and not in the least bit funny.
In fact some of his“quips“are ill timed and make fun of serious issues which is wrong!
So my answer is IDIOT.

AC is awesome…and so is chuck

steelmarket's avatar

I’m thinking about bringing out an action figure. ;-)

bythebay's avatar

Given the fact that he’s only around 6 years old and that he was raised by Badgers; I think he has a very well developed sense of humor!

Bri_L's avatar

bythebay <== Astrochuck in disguise?

Good one!!!!

wilson's avatar

@steelmarket, I’ll invest!

cak's avatar

I lurve AC!

@leeds,...wow just wow.

AstroChuck's avatar

I’m with leed. This guy sucks!

aprilsimnel's avatar

I’m wondering why he’s not famous yet. Or maybe he is and the “postman” business is a secret identity…

wundayatta's avatar

I wish I could point to a few examples, but I think it’s really cool how he always seems to find a way to extract fun out of messages without making fun of them. Like I said in another question, when do AstroChuck classes start?

(Damn, I wrote that before realizing that imitation is supposed to be the sincerest form of flattery. I wouldn’t want his head to swell so large that it pops!)

asmonet's avatar

I lurve that little guy. :)

leeds's avatar

Well i find what he does is against fluther rules.
And if it happens again i will be reporting it.

bythebay's avatar

ROFL4RL.

asmonet's avatar

@leeds: You’re entitled as a user to flag whatever you find offensive.

But head’s up. Chuckie is seriously well loved, the majority does not have the same opinion as you. While your opinion is valid, as it’s yours…it won’t find many friends here.

leeds's avatar

@asmonet,where would we be without rules?Germany!

bythebay's avatar

@leeds: What rules do you believe him to be in violation of?

leeds's avatar

@bythebay,random quips,no content in his answers,off topic.

bythebay's avatar

Hmmm, maybe you should read the guidelines again as I don’t see anything mentioned about random quips or humor. You do understand that his answers are meant to be humorous, right?
Perhaps his humor is not to your taste, but it’s not moving thread off topic, per se.

asmonet's avatar

Actually, anarchy. One could make the case that Germany had a very well thought out list of rules. Bullshit, but a system nonetheless.

Try to keep Germany out of your jokes unless it makes sense.

asmonet's avatar

In other news, how have you been oasis?

leeds's avatar

Germany was not a joke.

asmonet's avatar

I’m sure.

leeds's avatar

If you are sure then whats the problem?

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

I like AC, and I want to be just like him when I grow up. Sounds like someone either (a.) has no friggin sense of humor, or is (b.) bloody jealous of the lurve AC gets here.

Keep up whatever it is you do, AC, and if it gets serious and you have to go to court, give me a call, I’ll be a character witness. Everyone knows I am quite the character, even those people who think I am an asshole.’ :-)

Sakata's avatar

Just out of curiosity, what the hell does Germany have to do with anything?
.

You know what I like most about Fluther.com?

The tangents. Oh look a butterfly

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@Sakata, that’s not a butterfly that’s a… oh look a duck.

asmonet's avatar

I like pie.

bythebay's avatar

@Sakata & @evelyns_pet_zebra: Good Grief! It’s not a butterfly or a duck…it’s an ivory billed woodpecker

bythebay's avatar

@asmonet: There’s cake pie in the frizzer, help yourself!

asmonet's avatar

Do I have to check under the swimming pool?

bythebay's avatar

isn’t someone under the pool?

asmonet's avatar

the person who gives out cakes and pies is.

aprilsimnel's avatar

My bass guitar is blue!

bythebay's avatar

@aprilsimnel: No way?!? My car is, too.

wundayatta's avatar

Did you see the giant pink amoeba?

bythebay's avatar

@daloon: duh…in the frizzer, next to all the cakes!

wundayatta's avatar

@bythebay: My God! Next to the cakes?!? It must be a sign!

aprilsimnel's avatar

The sign by the swimming pool?

leeds's avatar

Quick lets run to the beach,i need my stomach pumping.

bythebay's avatar

No, the sign by AstroChucks house!

cookieman's avatar

love the mailman. save the world.

asmonet's avatar

WHY WONT RANDOMMRDAN STOP CRAFTING A RESPONSE.
Move your cursor!

;)

cookieman's avatar

Because he’s random.

aprilsimnel's avatar

It’s a performance art piece, a meditation on anticipation. Shh.

cookieman's avatar

waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

OH, he went away.

cookieman's avatar

Wait! He’s back.

asmonet's avatar

What a tease.

leeds's avatar

Oh quick,oh my ribs.quick i see the green clouds run far from the paviours.

KrystaElyse's avatar

AC is a riot. Fluther wouldn’t be as awesome without his witty remarks :o)

leeds's avatar

Carbonisation means free coal for all in the year DOT

Mr_M's avatar

AstroChuck is a person? And here I thought it was that fake grass they use at some baseball stadiums. :)

wundayatta's avatar

@Mr_M: What you’re thinking of is called astrolawn…. or something. I’m told they grow it up on satellites.

Mr_M's avatar

@daloon, I got it now. It’s AstroTurf. AstroChuck is what happens if you EAT AstroTurf.

wundayatta's avatar

@Mr_M: Doh! I knew that! Astrolawn! What was I thinking? Maybe the jello was green? Or is that a different question? I’m so confused. And I haven’t even been drinking. I think I need some of that smart pill.

Bri_L's avatar

Astrochuck funny funny funny! And not in that “no really funny” sort of way

hey ho!!!! Hey ho!! Hey ho!!
I wasn’t done yet..boomshakalakalaka boom!!

cookieman's avatar

I think RandomMrdan has passed out at his desk with his forehead pressed onto the keyboard.

Jack79's avatar

er, sure, as long as you don’t expect us to chip in for a present or something. I haven’t been here that long, but so far I think I like everyone. Even though I don’t always agree with everyone, the disagreements seem to be civilised and polite, and everybody’s really helpful. Astrochuck is a typical example of this.

loser's avatar

RandomMrDan! Come back to us! Step away from the light!!!

bythebay's avatar

I’m leaving to head over to RandomMrdan’s house, maybe he just needs some cake to revive him!

mangeons's avatar

AC=♥♥♥

loser's avatar

Crap! Maybe he’s trapped in the frizzer!!!

bythebay's avatar

Or even worse, Loser – he might be under the pool.

aprilsimnel's avatar

What if RamdomMrdan is a robot? A malfunctioning robot? Who needs cake? And is under the pool?

asmonet's avatar

I hope he doesn’t just close the page and sees what’s he has done here.

bythebay's avatar

Read above: Maybe that wasn’t a butterfly, duck or an ivory woodpecker; maybe that was RandomMrdan!

asmonet's avatar

Oh my, I thought he was gone for a second and I was so sad. But there he is!

mangeons's avatar

gasp maybe he’s going to eat all of the pancakes we keep in the frizzer. Ohhh nuuuu!!! D:

boffin's avatar

I want my “Mail” Astro Chuck is a god!

cookieman's avatar

@RandomMrdan watch…day twenty five…the collective is tense…the country is on the edge of its seat…how long will this go on?

back to you asmonet in the studio

Knotmyday's avatar

I like Charles fine. His questions are some of my all-time favorites. Here is a great example.
He’s a great all-around guy (and Federal employee) despite his taste in music. zing! sorry :^D

bythebay's avatar

I’ve searched high & low. In the frizzer, behind the cakes. Under the pool and underneath the enormous stack of pancakes. I even checked in Germany, no sign of the RandomMrdan.

I’ve exhausted my search, now we wait…and hope. We can’t pray because that would be controversial for Fluther; so we’ll just hope; I’m pretty sure hoping is acceptable. Hope is good.

RandomMrdan's avatar

hahahaha ahhh man, I love this website so much…I’m not sure what I’d do without it.

above is what I wanted to say…I clicked Answer! right before walking out the door for work, but I must have missed it, or it didnt register…haha sorry to keep you all waiting in suspense. I wanted to say this right after chuck said “I’m with leed. This guy sucks!”

I wouldn’t be surprised though if I did pass out on the keyboard, I was out drinking last night, got so completely drunk that I passed out on a friend of a friends couch with my coat, gloves, and shoes all still on me. Good times.

bythebay's avatar

Hey RandomMrdan, so glad you’re back safe & sound!

so what are we gonna talk about now everybody?

loser's avatar

There’s always the frizzer?

asmonet's avatar

@cprevite: I’m sorry, I was doing naughty things to our guest for the interview segment. I apologize.
He had an accent.

It seems the show went on without me. All is well. :)

asmonet's avatar

@RandomMrdan: You’re broken. lol4rl.

Thanks for the laughs. :)

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

I think this thread has gotten off on a tangent… or is that it has gotten onto an off tangent. Where were we again? Oh yeah, accolades to the MIghty AstroChuck! All hail The Astro Chuck. Someone should start an AC religion called AstroChuckism.

loser's avatar

We believe in AstroChuck, the Fluther Almighty. Maker of comments and jokes. Sometimes seen and not seen. Of one being with Fluther…

wundayatta's avatar

And the Great Pink Amoeba. Don’t forget that. Or is it pink lemonade? No matter. Believe away!

loser's avatar

I believe I’ll have another drink now…

RandomMrdan's avatar

I think Leeds might just be envious of all the lurve Chuck gets.

aprilsimnel's avatar

AstrumCarolus noster, qui es in aetheris:
sanctificetur Saccus Tuum;
adveniat Cursorii Tuum;
fiat Jocationis Tua,
sicut in Circumitus, et in Fluthera.
Facetia nostra cotidianeum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis constitutum hominis pigrum,
Sicut et nos dimittimus hominis pigrus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in taedium;
sed libera nos a Odi.

Amen

Mind you, Jellies, my Latin’s pretty bad.

loser's avatar

Yes, I think leeds just invented the term “Lurve Envy”!!!

Sakata's avatar

What about “Lurve Lust”?

AstroChuck's avatar

Stop it, everybody. I’m having trouble getting my pope hat on.

Sakata's avatar

It’s got those snaps in the back so you can resize it… duh.

bythebay's avatar

Can somebody please remind AC, ever so gently, that he cannot deliver the mail in the pope-mobile…

asmonet's avatar

I would like my mailman a whole lot more is he delivered mail in a pope hat and a pope mobile.

As it is now it’s all iPods and cell phones for that dude.
Our mail is always for the neighbors. :(

90s_kid's avatar

Everyone

cookieman's avatar

@RandomMrdan And now, apparently saxon.

asmonet's avatar

@cprevite: Same dude. :)

Knotmyday's avatar

@aprilsimnel, I lurve thee much.

90s_kid's avatar

@leeds
Oh Goodness. AstroChuck I like you a lot, but his first quip was right on. I can’t believe how his posts don’t get removed for off-topicness. It is terrible, and I was too afraid to say it. It is very bias.
Lurve dude.

@bythebay
SIX YEARS OLD?!?!

loser's avatar

@90s_kid: Are you sure that’s not just your hatred toward your brother talking?

aprilsimnel's avatar

@Knotmyday – Aw, pshaw. Thanks. ::kicks pebble::

90s_kid's avatar

@loser
Quick with the updates, huh.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

i think astrochuck is one of the most charming characteristics (if that makes sense?) of fluther.

can you guys fathom how awesome it would be if chuck was your neighbor?

asmonet's avatar

I’d settle for him being my mailman.

Can I pay you in lollipops, little man?

mangeons's avatar

I want chuck to be my neighbor!!

mrswho's avatar

I lurve Astrochuck! He was the first person to welcome me to fluther, he’s a citizen of the universe and a gentleman to boot. :D

YAY Astrochuck!

breedmitch's avatar

I like AC, but he is so very old.

loser's avatar

I don’t know, he looks kinda young to me!

breedmitch's avatar

Well, he’s so very much older than I.

AstroChuck's avatar

And thus, more distinguished.

mangeons's avatar

He’s not old! He’s only six years old, remember? :)

AstroChuck's avatar

And cute as shit.

mangeons's avatar

You know it AC. :)

asmonet's avatar

Hahaha, that just made you more adorable, if possible.

90s_kid's avatar

If you’re cute as sh*t, then doesn’t that mean you look like sh*t?

LouisianaGirl's avatar

I dont talk to him like a best friend but yes indeed he is hilarious and cute as sh**!!!!
Rock on AstroChuck!!!
Cute little 6 year old! haha

Little known fact:
Chuck was brought on board Chevrolet as a consultant for the new pimped out version of the Astro Van. Affectionately known in the market as “Little Chucky”

YARNLADY's avatar

Lurve gamer!

AstroChuck's avatar

@SeventhSense- That’s Little Chuckie.

SeventhSense's avatar

@AstroChuck
The trademark lawyers had some issues with it. Astropimpmobile is still available though.

HungryGuy's avatar

Fluther should sell an AstroChuck bobble head doll along with that tee-shirt…

RandomMrdan's avatar

I’d buy an AstroChuck shirt if such a thing existed, and was for sale here.

MRSHINYSHOES's avatar

I love AstroChuck! Funny and intelligent, there isn’t a bad bone in him. And with a cute avatar like that, who can hate him? Lol.
