Well, it seems that everybody’s favorite non-SF, non-Tabbed, no-BSM, never-actually-a-LRP/LRRP (his first unit in Vietnam was re-designated from Long Range Patrol to Ranger long before he ever reported in) wannabe hero blithering idiot fine individual is at it again.
I simply don’t have the time or patience today to link to all of our favorite WitLessOne’s antics documented here at TAH. Search for “Wittgenfeld” and “Whittgenfeld” using this site’s Search Tool if you aren’t familiar with why the guy is “oh so beloved” here.
Be that as it may: y’all ain’t gonna believe that doddering old fool’s fine former soldier’s latest claim.
Apparently, I am actually Don Shipley.
Or at least a certain
clueless tool WitLessOne thinks I am. Just go to this link, and take a look at the comments to his 17 January 2014 entry. (You’ll have to open comments, then open the two longer comments to find it. His blog is set up IMO rather clumsily.)
Damn – I’m a SEAL. That would indeed be a great thing. I wish I’d known that. Why didn’t someone tell me that before?
That must mean I’ve been through BUD/S. Wonder why I can’t remember ever being on the beach at Coronado? Or graduating from BUD/S? Or what my BUD/S class number was? Wouldn’t I remember all of those things?
Geez – that would mean I was in the Navy, too. Wonder why I can’t remember that either? I mean, I’ve been on a few Navy installations, and I’ve seen a few Navy ships. But I can’t remember ever setting foot on a US Navy ship or submarine – and I think I’d remember doing that, too.
It would mean that my spouse is named Diane. Funny, but I think I’d remember that also.
It would mean my son was a Navy SEAL. Whoah – I think I’d remember that as well.
You know, if I didn’t know better, I’d swear it’s just not possible that I’m Don Shipley. But our favorite WitLessOne thinks I am – and we all know he’s “never wrong”. After all, he’s a legend in his own mind. (smile)
News flash for ya, oh
dipstick clown Induhvidual Formerly Known Professionally As “Thunder Chicken”: no, I’m not Don Shipley. As usual, you’re barking up the wrong tree. The reason that I “never answered you” (if you’re not baldfaced lying about asking me; you’ve certainly never sent me any e-mail asking me a damn thing) was that I never saw your alleged question. And in any case, I also have a life – one that includes far more pressing business than obsessively following everything you do, or disabusing you of every foolish notion you come up with.
Based on what I’ve seen, disabusing you of foolish ideas by itself would be a full-time job. For three people.
I must say I’m flattered, though. From what I’ve seen and heard about Don Shipley, he seems like one helluva fine fellow. I’m honored to be compared to him, and would have been proud to serve alongside him. Unfortunately, I’ve not had the pleasure of ever meeting him or his lovely wife. Maybe one day I will.
However, WitLessOne, before I end this article I have a bit of advice for you. Five bits of advice, to be precise. So you might want to listen closely. And if you don’t “get” one or more of them, have someone else explain them to you.
First: IMO you should pray Don’s not p!ssed you thought I was him, and publicly said as much. Because I don’t think I’d want Don – or his hair – p!ssed at me. I think you owe Don a bigtime apology. A very public one.
Second: since you seem to be oh so very interested in me, “buddy”, I’ll save you some trouble. I’m also not the Pope, Lady Gaga, the POTUS, the Queen of England, Vladimir Putin, Ahmed Karzai, Bette Midler, Al Gore, Madonna, Alex Rodriguez, Angela Merkel, the Dali Lama, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, Sting, Gary Sinese, Psy,
Payton Peyton Manning, the Emperor of Japan, Meryl Streep, or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. That should help narrow your search a bit. (smile)
Third: John Wayne is dead. So you might want to use another image when referring to me on your blog. (By the way: is that old movie poster image you used copyrighted? Did you secure the copyright owner’s permission to use it?)
Fourth: I have a screen-capture of the comment from your blog where you claimed that I’m Don Shipley. If that comment disappears from your blog, I’ll post those screen captures here.
And lastly: well, just watch this highly NSFW video for my last bit of advice. I really think you should take that video to heart. Daily.
Hat tip to TSO for bringing this bit of WitLess Idiocy to my attention. Oh, and by the way, WitLessOne: I’m not a retired 3- or 4-star anything, either. (smile)
