There He Goes Again . . . .

| January 22, 2014

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)

    Here goes my shot at the DW (derailed)train of thought:

    I don’t know about this, after all Hondo could be short for “Hon, do” or “Honey do”….and we all know Mrs. Shipley likes to keep the chief busy….and I’ve never seen Don and Hondo together…..

    Maybe Hondo is Don Shipley’s Tony Clifton…..and the joke is on us….

    wow that hurt, no wonder DW struggles with reality so…

  2. Old Trooper says:

    @98: Yeah, you’re right, his ramblings are more like a cheese grater across the nutsack.

    His incoherent stutters show that he is completely nuts, and not in a good way. I have seen ramblings like that, before, with people detoxing from drugs and alcohol.

  3. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    OK … I just visited that google site of his.


    OK … I have an idea. Kinda like a win win for all!

    Gregory Charles Banks can counsel Dullass Widgetfield for a discount.

    Banks better hurry though, I suspect he will not have his CT DPH License or National Certification much longer!

  4. Hondo says:

    VOV: nah, my name isn’t Diane either. I think I’d remember that, too. (smile)

    Hope you are taking notes, WitLessOne. Then you can go watch the video at the last link in the article once again. It’s on the house. (smile)

    Dullas Thoughts:
    “I always thought you were a bit like Bette Midler, but not totally, but then again, that would be impossible, and if you were that would be weird and things get all messed up after that with the lack of sleep, too much booze and ghey porn … oh it has been a long day.”

  6. That Guy says:

    If anyone is bored, you can find him on facebook by searching ‘Dallas Lrp 41 Wittgenfeld’. It’s like poking a retarded badger in the face when you comment on his bullshit.

  7. Hondo says:

    David: just be thankful he didn’t eat ojinga bokum (very spicy roast squid with vegetables and garlic over rice or noodles) along with the kimchi. (smile)

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    Nobody is THAT bored, That Guy.

  9. Robot Wrangler says:

    @95 be fair, herpes goes away for periods of time….

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    He just gets dumber and dumber. It’s turning into senile dementia. Maybe we’ll get lucky. He’ll forget what he’s saying and shut off his computer.

    Well, one can hope, right?

  11. Just An Old Dog says:

    Maybe he will catch a ride with Birdbath Bernath and they can form a new landmark called “Douchebag Crater” When the idiot pilot runs out of gas.

  12. The Lurker Formally Known as Curt says:

    I have read comments on other threads before, but that is the first time I went to “his world”. I don’t think I did myself any favors…
    You guessed it…


  13. Without rationalizing the possibility of suffering Dain Bramage, I too followed the link to the site of
    “The Pukey Purple Suited Heavy Drop Dummy”.
    And I too, was impacted severely. What venomous drivel. Someone needs some serious counseling. Even Gordon, “The Duffoon” isn’t that far gone.
    He is as ate up as Paul K. Wickre, and is another member of the “MEGA CLASS PATHETIC LOSER” club.

  14. MAJ Arkay says:

    @21, oh, you’ve just GOT to get the next book published toot sweet. Spousal Unit came running when I guffawed at your comment here. We’re both serious fans of your first book; this one sounds like a doozey, too.

    OBTW, Don’s not the only awesome hair person in the world. [humble mode on] Mine own is thick enough to use as a weapon when long and braided, strands been added for a thicker mane on a show horse, and it recently spontaneously changed color to Harley hair (black and chrome). It has its own personality and decides what style it shall assume with no input from the bearer. [humble mode off]

    As for Dullass Widgetfeld, er hat keine Geschirr im Schrank. Keine. Er hat keine Schrank…

  15. MAJ Arkay says:

    I see the LRRP Ranger Association ( is holding a reunion in Savannah this October. I’m sure all the D/151st IN (LRRP) veterans who attend will be so glad to meet up with Dullass again…

  16. HS Sophomore says:

    In today’s news, it appears that Dallas thinks the TAH old-timers are involved in secret-squirrel government programs to build rocket ships for the construction of their new world order, and spend their spare time harassing PTSD addled veterans into suicide (and presumably tossing puppies into trash compacters and sodomizing bunnies). Check out his Facebook: It’s a couple posts down, the one with the Project Camelot link. This has got to be the most incoherent thing I’ve ever seen on the internet…

    Wotta retarded SHITBIRD!!
