crotch abuse?! :s

Harp's avatar

@benseven
yeah, well, that references a distinctively johnpowell style of..um… “catharsis” I guess would be the word. Can anyone else supply a relevant link?

robmandu's avatar

If I thought johnpowell cared about this number, I just might congratulate him.

But he doesn’t. So I won’t.

. . .

Awwwww… who am I kiddin’? You the man, @jp! Keep being the badass we all know and lurve, muchacho!

This is starting to become an epidemic! Congratulations on joining a very exclusive club.
Now, onward to 20k.

stevenb's avatar

Thanks for all of the great thoughtful answers as well as the smart a** ones too. I always enjoy hearing your opinions. You have a great wit, an a wicked sense of humor. Keep on keepin on. Peace out rock on! May the bird of paradise fly up your nose. May the wind be always at your back, and the sun shine on your path.

That’s it, I’m out of cheesy sayings. Thanks again!

richardhenry's avatar

Hey, it’s only a matter of time before his number becomes so huge that it breaks the layout of Fluther. We’re right behind you jp!

wildflower's avatar

Congrats JP!! Well deserved – now who said anger can’t be constructive….??

shilolo's avatar

Can’t type….. keyboard wet…..tears of joy!

Now that there are three members of the 10K club, maybe you all should “get together”...?

richardhenry's avatar

@shilolo: A get together, where they decide what to do with us?

Allie's avatar

Way to go, JP! Time to celebrate. Have some Taco Bell and beer. =)

SuperMouse's avatar

@richard I meant 10,000 brilliant words! That’s my story & I’m sticking to it.

Harp's avatar

I do recall JP saying that he’d give half his lurve to anyone who’d bring him a burrito. Apparently, no one took him up on it

iwamoto's avatar

OOOOOOH YEAH, WE DID IT, WE F’ING DID IT ! RYAN, I’M SO PROUD, I’D PUNCH YOU IN THE DICK FOR IT !

jlm11f's avatar

mmm hard to top iwa’s post up there ^, buttttt Congratulations!!!!! You owe me a burrito, because I supplied a good amount of that lurve there :P. Many here don’t know, but getting 10K lurve has been JP’s dream for over a year now. He has struggled a lot and trained hard. But it has finally paid off ! i feel the need to add a “just kidding” here in case anyone actually takes me seriously Thanks for all the helpful answers, and also the smart ass ones that have literally made me LOL .

eambos's avatar

Let’s have a mass crotch- punching celebration for this impressive feat!

Yeah JP!!!!

AstroChuck's avatar

I’m wearing a cup!

monsoon's avatar

@jp, thanks for downloading an entire fps game, just to show me where the quit button was. You’re awesome.

lefteh's avatar

Congrats. Save some PBR for me.

breedmitch's avatar

@lefteh: You can have ginger ale for a few more years.

Congratulations JP. This is where we cut to the montage of you typing all those great answers set to some “you-can-do-it” rock song.

I’ll spare myself the dick-punching, however.

eambos's avatar

Party Pooper.

breedmitch's avatar

Alright, lefteh can get sloshed, and ouch!, I just punched my dick.

shadling21's avatar

@jp – Rock on!

joeysefika's avatar

We should make a montage video of all JP’s drinking/ typing/ burrito eating and play to the rocky theme song.

PupnTaco's avatar

10K, and all from a remote location! Good job.

Nimis's avatar

Delivered from the womb of evil unto Fluther greatness.
Congrats, JohnPowell!

skfinkel's avatar

Wow!! That’s a lot of good advise, feedback, opinions, talk, and reflection. Great work!

shrubbery's avatar

Wooooooo well done JP! I think I already voted for a dick punch on your birthday so I’ll spare you today.
Thanks for being Fluther’s favourite. You rock!

robmandu's avatar

Wow, @shrubbery! johnpowell really has had a positive effect on you, eh?

AstroChuck's avatar

jp is a Yank. Spell that “favorite”, dammit!

jcs007's avatar

Congradumilations! May your wisdom continue for another 10000 lurve! Now, about this crotch punching…

shrubbery's avatar

Hahaha. That’s me celebrating just for him :P

Randy's avatar

This Pabst’s for you JP! =) Congrats!

kevbo's avatar

You’re the wind beneath my wings, jp. Congrats!

MissAnthrope's avatar

Congrats, man! You’re now a Fluther rockstar.

arnbev959's avatar

Congratulations, JP! You’re already a tenth of the way to 100,000 lurve!

SuperMouse's avatar

@JohnPowell, do you think you will survive the punching if when you make it to 100,000?

jrpowell's avatar

Damn, one of the dick punchers might have played in Eugene the day before my birthday and I didn’t notice. Well, the heartwarming comments left in this thread come close to making up for that. Thanks for the kind comments. Now I am going to go to Burrito Boy and get a burrito.

:-)

robmandu's avatar

@johnpowell, for you.

Allie's avatar

^^ Aww, so cute.

babygalll's avatar

Congratulations!

augustlan's avatar

I bow down before your greatness, and offer you a dick punch and a PBR.

jlm11f's avatar

One dick punch for every lurve score, yes? so someone needs 10,017 punches.

richardhenry's avatar

@PnL: I’m looking forward to drinking the wine produced from what will be left of those grapes.

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

10,000? wow. I guess I’ll punch my boobs in celebration!

flameboi's avatar

Keep going JP!!! Someday we will be able to cash our lurve!—by the way, are you John Powell, the composer?

scamp's avatar

Way to go jp!! Congrats

jrpowell's avatar

@flameboi :: Not me

scamp's avatar

@johnpowell I used your name generator and I am the only one of me in the country. I am unique!!

Allie's avatar

I’m one of ten. That’s less than I though there would be.

ezraglenn's avatar

eambos's avatar

El_Cadejo's avatar

Nimis's avatar

I am one of 343. And I’ve been getting the email of at least 74 of them.

augustlan's avatar

<< Just noticed the “sibling” Qs. What does that say about JohnPowell?

Nimis's avatar

Aug: That’s awesome.

robmandu's avatar

@augustlan, buwahahahaha! Nice catch.

flameboi's avatar

@JP
Oh, I wanted you to sign a couple of cd’s :)
By the way, interesting link!

wildflower's avatar

“There are 1 or fewer people in the U.S. named….” – gotta love the grammar in that!

shadling21's avatar

If there is one or fewer of me in the States, and one or more of me in Canada, then how many of me are there?

jrpowell's avatar

@augustlan :: nice catch.. I can’t stop laughing.
