Which adorable bastard needs a room in the 20k mansion?

Asked by WillWorkForChocolate (23103points) June 20th, 2011

Make way for the Fiddle Playing Creole Bastard!

Congrats on 20k, sir, and may you stay for another 20k! Even if you tried to leave, we’d tie you down and hold you hostage.

OMG! My favorite little bastard arrives!
Firing up the hot tub and breaking out the happy brownies and champagne! :-D

If I were ever up a creek
without a sturdy paddle
I’d want this kid to rescue me and sling me across his saddle! lol ;-)

Kardamom's avatar

I’ll bring the Doritos to stain your Shanty! Congratulations and thanks for all of your wise and witty answers. Keep ‘em coming.

Now sit down, sir, while all of us jellies bust out our banjos and jews harps and washboard basses, we’re going to serenade you and we just might be the biggest jug-band known to man. One two, three: Dugga dwang dwang dwang, whuppa whuppa whuppa, wing wing jigga jigga boom. Fiddle Playing Creole Bastard is in the Room!

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard is so awesome he created fire by rubbbing two ice cubes together.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’ll bring the Bamb-chops and the Pooh-peroni and we’ll have ourselves a lovely, gamey feast! Moose and Elk also on the menu, I think you’ll like the way I cook! Super Grats, Fiddle, I love you almost as much as @KatawaGrey does!

You’re not fiddlin’ around! Play on, you Creolicious Bastard! Congratulations!

@picante Creolicious… If I ever get reincarnated on Fluther for any reason, that’s totally going to be my new moniker. And thank you!

fundevogel's avatar

If I knew in advance I’d’ve made potluck. Congratulations!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Well, now that the amazing bastard is here… who’s got the pancakes? Even if no one eats them, we can use them for frisbees!

MilkyWay's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Hmm, I think I’ll have mine with some fresh cream and strawberries thanks ;)

Michael_Huntington's avatar

Good show! Jolly good show, sir! I must congratulate you for this fine achievement.

Mariah's avatar

He managed to stay at exactly 20K for a stunningly long time.

Congrats Fiddle! You’re one jelly I always love reading.

TexasDude's avatar

@fundevogel now I’m doubly hungry! Thanks :D
@WillWorkForChocolate yeah I still haven’t had any pancakes. I’ll gladly take some!
@Michael_Huntington thank you sir! Your congratulations are greatly appreciated.
@Mariah thank you dear, I’m flattered. And I do enjoy reading your wise beyond your years contributions as well.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Would you prefer just pancakes? There’s a whole buffet being set up!

Smoke and a pancake? Bong and a blintz? Pipe and a crepe?

tedibear's avatar

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Well done! Love your posts! I have cookies and can ship them to the mansion for you…

ucme's avatar

A tribute just for you….....congrats fiddler! ;¬}

SavoirFaire's avatar

Félicitations, @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard! May you crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women.

TexasDude's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate a stogie and a cuddle would be nice, actually.

@tedibear aww, thank you, I’m glad to hear it!

@ucme hahaa, this song is awesome. I think I’m gonna have to acquire it. Thanks buddy!

@SavoirFaire lol, I’m pretty sure I’ve used that quote more than once on here. Thank you!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@SavoirFaire The women wouldn’t lament! They would just run after @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard in awe of his handsomeness!

TexasDude's avatar

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Stogie and a cuddle, coming right up! But only as long as I get to sit and listen to you read aloud in that voice of yours.

MilkyWay's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Yes yes yes! He should read out some of his amazing and awesome poems :D

Judi's avatar

Seems like just yesterday, you were a wee tiny jelly in the pond. Look how you’ve grown! Congratulations!!

tinyfaery's avatar

Yay! You are a great addition to the collective; even though you are relatively new here, you have inserted yourself into my flutherverse. This place wouldn’t be the same without you.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@KatetheGreat Their lamentation would be that they can’t all have him.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@SavoirFaire All girls lament that fact!

Kayak8's avatar

I come home from work to be greeted by this incredible awesomeness!!!!!!! How cool is this? I am lovin’ this news . . .

TexasDude's avatar

@jca I’m actually terrible at fiddle. If I had my acoustic guitar at the moment, I’d play you a song, though!

@janbb thank you dear, that means a lot to me :-)

@flutherother thank you, I definitely try, haha!

@queenie and @WillWorkForChocolate wish granted!

@Judi thanks, I’ve been eating my veggies!

@tinyfaery aw, I appreciate it! And I’m flattered!

@SavoirFaire and @KatetheGreat hey, there’s plenty to go round. Sharing is caring, after all.

@Kayak8 hope work went well for you. And thank you!

MilkyWay's avatar

Don’t know bout you folks, but after hearing @Fiddle, I think I need a breather…
Thanks @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard That was brilliant!

TexasDude's avatar

@queenie anytime, m’dear. I meant to mention @WillWorkForChocolate in the intro as well, but I get nervous in front of a camera, so I may have to go fix that. :-p

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Okay, but be wary of maenads. We want to keep you around!

TexasDude's avatar

@SavoirFaire I had to google Maenad. Sounds hot.

chyna's avatar

Fiddle you hottie! Congratulations!

AstroChuck's avatar

Congratulations! From one adorable bastard to another.
Love you long time.

augustlan's avatar

Congrats to the best trophy husband around! We’ll celebrate properly later, FiddleBastard. I’ll bring my whip.

TexasDude's avatar

@chyna thanks darlin’!

@AstroChuck thank you good sir. Five dolla.

@augustlan ah yes, my dear. I certainly look forward to it, of course!

bkcunningham's avatar

I’‘m so proud. Like one of my own children has made an accomplishment. Now hit the books, no drinking and driving and quit asking me for extra cash. Get a haircut and get a real summer job.

TexasDude's avatar

@bkcunningham hey now, I got my hair cut last week, thank you very much! Party on.

Berserker's avatar

Congratulations to a very intelligent, compassionate and awesome jelly! And I just ain’t saying that, for someone with the word bastard in their username, you’re a pretty awesome bastard.

Beware the mansion though…it may get attacked by zombies. But I’m not worried about you and your vast knowledge on the living dead.
Cheers dude, keep it up, I love reading your posts. Next party we’ll host for you, I hope it will be on the publication of your novel. :)

TexasDude's avatar

@Seaofclouds thank you so much!

@Symbeline aw yay, that means a lot to me dear. And me, you, and @incendiary_dan would make a pretty good anti-zombie team, I’m sure. Oh and my next party hopefully won’t be too far in the future, because my editor is getting ready to mail me a copy so I can finally start revisions!

bkcunningham's avatar

I actually chuckled out loud. You momma’s boy you. Come here and let me pinch your cheeks.

Berserker's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Sweeeeet I didn’t know the progress went that far. Did the editor say anything, does this look promising? Must be, if you’re to revise it.
And aye, with us around, Fluther is safe from zombies. :D And zombie sharks.

TexasDude's avatar

@bkcunningham haha, okayyyyy. *blushes

@Symbeline well my editor is also a friend of mine, so there’s no real word on the market, but she’s a very good editor, so it should be highly polished by the time she gets done with it, and then I can start my revisions.

Ladymia69's avatar

congrats, you damned bastard!! lurve to you!

TexasDude's avatar

@Ladymia69 thank you kindly dear!

tranquilsea's avatar

ETpro's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Well bless my little pea-picking soul, ya did it. Congratulations!

Need any help moving to your new, bigger quarters? I’d be right damn proud to pitch in.

TexasDude's avatar

@ETpro sure thing, good sir. I can’t lift this guitar amplifier on my own. She’s a tad on the heavy side. Whoa, you might as well stay with me after you help me move in… you are right on my heels to 20k!

filmfann's avatar

FPCB!!! Welcome!!! You’re admission is long overdue!
You are terrific, enjoyable, and very appreciated! Congo Rats, dude!

TexasDude's avatar

@filmfann thanks for the warm welcome! :-)

ETpro's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I’m so amped you’d let me even touch any of your music gear. But ;let’s just get you settled in and I’ll slink back down to my lowr floor room. You have no idea how slow I can be about picking up Lurve these days.

TexasDude's avatar

@ETpro I’m sure you’ve handled an amp or two in your day, so I’ll trust you. And here, have some lurve to help ya out!

ETpro's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Ha! Lurve right back, but I’m sure we’re both maxed out on each other.

TexasDude's avatar

Well it never hurt to try! And I didn’t even know until recently that you could max out lurve on someone either.

Aethelwine's avatar

I’ve been very busy today, just for you Fiddle. Enjoy

Congrats! :D

TexasDude's avatar

@jonsblond haha, that looks delicious! Glad to see you, and thank you!

Blueroses's avatar

Son of a bitch! I can’t believe I’m late. I ran all the way here with this song repeating on the ipod. Congrats on the 20-large; make sure you put half into savings.

TexasDude's avatar

@iamthemob oh I plan to! Thanks for coming. And thanks again for your support during my… school issues.

@ANef_is_Enuf and I heart you too! Thanks :-)

@AmWiser thank you very much! *brofist

@worriedguy oh god, I love Zatarians…. be my guest! And thank you!

@Blueroses already put 10k away :-) And I really enjoy that song! Thank you!

iamthemob's avatar


Any time. We’re even now anyway…because…uhm…I accidentally threw up in your new room. Too many hurricanes…

chyna's avatar

Staying out of @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard‘s room for awhile.

iamthemob's avatar

@chyna – very good call.

TexasDude's avatar

@iamthemob and that’s exactly why I always keep a big box of sawdust on hand.

Apologies for being late to the party..
Very sincere congrats on your 20K @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard.
You are a wonderful, poetic, multi-talented guy – and I’m so thrilled you’re around in the Fluther-verse.
p.s. Love the ‘hawk!

Seelix's avatar

Whoa! I’m super late. Super congrats to one of my favourite fiddlin’ bastards! Okay, my only favourite fiddlin’ bastard. Lurve you tons!

marinelife's avatar

I am so sorry to be late for this party! I was out of town for a week. COngratulations, @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard! on reaching a great milestone!

Your unique voice really adds to the collective.

TexasDude's avatar

@forestGeek thank you so much! :D
@WillWorkForChocolate anytime, dollface!
@Nullo thank you sir!
@geeky_mama, Aw, I appreciate it, and no worries! Thanks!
@Seelix Lurve you as well! Say hello to the motherland for me.
@marinelife glad you made it home safe, and thanks for coming! :D

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Okay, I’m feeling especially cuddly right now, after something awesome that happened today, so hugs and kisses to everyone on this thread! And pancakes, and crepes, and eclairs, and sandwiches especially for bob… Oh, and feathers for everyone to cover themselves with if Dutchess walks back in the room!

TexasDude's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate sweet! I’m glad to hear it! And thanks again!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Wait… was that a joke based on the fact that he said “sweet” right after “chocolate”? Or was it more of a joke based on the fact that I am rarely sweet? It could go either way… :P

harple's avatar

Oops, late again – congratulations @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard on a well deserved move up to the mansion – keep on rockin!

TexasDude's avatar

@harple thanks a lot, and no worries! *rocks out

Bellatrix's avatar

I missed this! Happy 20k day Mr Bastard! You always make such funny, unique but at times sensitive posts. Well done to you!! Always a joy to read a @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard message.

Buttonstc's avatar

Sorry to be so late. RL has been busy the last several days.

But that was a quick ascent to the 20K stratosphere. Congrats to you. I always enjoy reading your literate and well informed posts.

You’re somewhere in the South I know. Would you perchance be acquainted with or related to Bastard Out of Carolina ? That was the first Q that popped into my head the day I first spied your SN.


WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@queenie I’ll provide scones especially for YOU, love. Clotted cream? Jam?

TexasDude's avatar

@Bellatrix aw, I love your assessment of my posts. Totally blushing now. Thanks for stopping by, it’s lovely to see you!

@Buttonstc I live in TN… unfortunately I don’t know Bastard out of Carolina. And thank you very much! I’m totally honored.

MilkyWay's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Oooh, yes please :D
Do you like scones @Fiddle ?

TexasDude's avatar

@queenie oh god, I love scones!

KateTheGreat's avatar

I’ve never had a scone in my life.

Bellatrix's avatar

Sends @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard a hug and says “very welcome” then bakes some light and fluffy scones and throws them over the ocean to @KatetheGreat. Eat them with some butter OR some cream and jam.

rooeytoo's avatar

Wow, this is the latest I have ever been and I am so sorry to have missed the excitement.

Sorry mate, I have been slacking a bit lately, but

CONGRATS to you and well done and much deserved! Cheers matey.

TexasDude's avatar

@rooeytoo no worries, you could never be late to a 20k party (unless I had reached 30k already). Pull up a chair by the fire, we’re about to start tasting fine brandy.

Blueroses's avatar

Oh, shit! That was fine brandy? Sorry. I thought it was the cheap stuff @Symbeline brought. I added Mtn Dew to the bottle.

TexasDude's avatar

@Blueroses it still has the same effect ;-)

KateTheGreat's avatar

Holy crap. Brandy sounds fantabulous right about now.

syz's avatar

Man, I go away for few days and I miss the best parties! Congratulations!!

TexasDude's avatar

@KatetheGreat I agree. A whole bucket of it, preferably.

@syz it’s never to late to join in! And thank you!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard We’re going to be raging alcoholics one day. Hahaha.

TexasDude's avatar

@KatetheGreat implying we aren’t already :*-(

TexasDude's avatar

True dat. You can’t be a great artist/writer/whatever without some kind of demon, so haters gonna have to hate.

augustlan's avatar

Did someone mention brandy? I love this really cheap crap called Jacquin’s Ginger Brandy‘s Ginger Flavored Brandy. So good.

TexasDude's avatar

I’m gonna have to try that. The link leads to this question, btw.

ETpro's avatar

@augustlan If we can fit cheap and brandy in the same sentence, you have my undivided attention. I hereby vow to try some Jacquin’s Ginger Brandy.

augustlan's avatar

Well crap. Let me try it again… linky.

Bellatrix's avatar

WineOland… what a name.

‘Your destination for fine wines’ – served in a brown bag?

TexasDude's avatar

My interest has been piqued. And that is a cool bottle.

augustlan's avatar

@Bellatrix I know! It was one of the only places I could find a picture of it. So sleazy sounding. :p

Bellatrix's avatar

I told my husband, and he thought it was hilarious!! Hey, who cares if they have what you want at the right price. It just seems…wrong!

wilma's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard , I’m so sorry I missed your party, I was out of town for a couple of weeks.
You are such a sweetheart and one of my all time favorite jellyguys.

TexasDude's avatar

@wilma it’s okay dear, glad you made it home safe and I hope your trip was lovely. Thank you, you’re one of my favorite jellyladies!
