"Midget Tossing"

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I find the term "Midget Tossing" as used in the subtitle of the General Sports forum to be very offensive, even though I'm 5'11". Please remove this offensive term or I shall cry and then possibly taunt you a second time..

Maybe you should post a poll and see what the membership thinks about this very troubling event.

Someone mentioned getting a sense of humor...so I moved this thread.

In the future if you are serious about a post complaint, please use the right tool....

and don't be one.

What makes you think I'm joking? Do I have to get my lawyer involved?

I believe the correct nomenclature is "little people".

I just saw that you guys changed the subtitle. Guess it pays to whine about stuff!*

Seriously* tho - you kids don't ever think I'm being serious about stuff like this, do you?:



*seriously - I'm just having fun. Really.

When I saw the midget tossing reference, it brought back college memories. One of my fraternity brothers and a roommate was about 5 foot 2. We were watching TV, and came across midget(or dwarf) tossing. It became a joke for a good week or two. Every time we mentioned we were going to enter our friend in the contest, he became furious. It was hilarious.

I think Epicski is a bit on the sensitive side to remove the reference.

That's OK, we too have a sense of humor and for that matter we of the "vertically challenged set" are planning a Jer tossing contest (I'm 5'9") and it will be held on/from the first gondola of the next gathering.

Sometimes its hard to tell if you really have a sarcastic sense of humour or if you're just a Mean Hateful Little Man.

Fisch, that's too funny. Was he speaking to you by the end of the year?


Too bad some "tools" have to wreck it for those of us who DO have a sense of humour and aren't afraid to show it.

I am aware that I have a pretty strange sense of humor, but honestly, seriously, really everything I say here (and the other place, for that matter) is said at leat 51% in jest and to be taken with a grain or shaker of salt.. Honestly and seriously. It's the interweb. Actually, I'm like this in the real world as well. Honestly.







Seriously.

Maybe he's just a Sensitive, Grumpy Mid sized guy.. You know there is usually a middle path to any understanding. Now he could very well be a gaper also. But offensive to little people , nah. Just to the rest of us , like us all at times. Honestly .






Deleriously

Well, the forum was originally named by Phil, and I don't know if he ever really intended midget tossing to appear publicly in the title. Unfortunately in this case, Jer was more "politically correct" than EpicSki. : The truth is, when I replied to Jer ^ up there, I wasn't even aware we had used the term to describe the contents of a forum.

It was worth a second look and the second look was less humorus than the first time around. Regardless, if you engage in that past-time, please be sure to post your results in that General Sports forum. Pictures would be preferred.

Honestly and seriously, I'm laughing my butt off!
Thanks for the grins

Whilst on the subject of midgets.......

3 midgets at the circus get to talking one night.

Midget #1 tells the others he is sick of circus life and is heading into the Guinness Book of Records office to get his hands measured as he is sure his hands are smaller than the smallest recorded hands as per the book. If he's correct, he can earn 10 times circus money by doing the talk show circuit.

Midget #2 says he will go as well because he thinks his size 0000 feet may be the smallest in the world as well.

Midget #3 sheepishly says "Well you've all seen me in the shower, surely nobody is 'smaller' than me"

Next morning our three intrepid midgets head to the office.

Midget #1 enters the office and emerges an hour later, his face beaming with pride "I did it, smallest hands in the world"

Midget #2 goes in, emerging an hour later similarly chuffed "Yep, smallest feet in the world"

Midget #3 enters the office and emerges an hour later, long faced and very solemn. Immediately his colleagues realize he has not 'measured up'. He slowly walks over to his friends and says "Who the hell is Jer ???"

One of the trivial things I added to my brain cells this year was the "difference" between a dwarf and a midget.
