LOL! I had a troll today too. Oh lucky day, yes?
I just got my first, er, fifty-first piece of hatemail.

“Dear Mrs. Fliger. I’ve known you wanted to be just like Dooce for years but you couldn’t hide it any better? Your web designs suck and your coding is awful and now your stealing ideas from Dooce’s website. Pathetic. Get your own fonts.”
Hang on… Hang on…
:: PPPPFFTTTTT ::
Sorry, I’m laughing… so.. incredibly.. hard.. right… now..
I fart when I laugh. Didn’t you know that? My closest friends know that. I figured I’ve told The Internet that at some point or other.
Or maybe I should show you video evidence?
So thank you, 22.214.171.124, for reminding me to not work so much on those sucky designs that I don’t take the time to share ass-gas with The Internet.
P.S. Your is possessive. You’re is a contraction of YOU and ARE. Please take notes.
P.P.S. I’m Mrs. FLINGER. With an “L”. Please reference the font I’ve “stolen” from Dooce on my header for my name.
P.P.P.S I’m honored you’ve read for years even though you hate me. Please feel free to refresh this page and send it to all your hating Flinger friends. I hope you have a secret Flinger-Hate club. I’ve always wanted to have a club. Refresh Refresh Refresh.
P.P.P.P.S. The video is from our garage sale on Saturday when NOBODY showed up. We started pranking our friend who couldn’t be there (we sent her away, actually because it was so slow) and telling her people were making deals. There are four videos. Each one is funnier than the one before. I will post more if you ask nice and pee in the potty and stop wetting the bed. Also, the part where I fall down on the ground? That’s just after I fart. It’s true.
LOL! I had a troll today too. Oh lucky day, yes?
OMG. I think this ass was emailing me earlier.
It’s a basic free font on most computers. I guess the whole world is a thief, doh! Some people are sycophantic illiterates and total dipshits regarding design.
Okay darling! First let me send a huge FUCK OFF to your troll!
Secondly, I now know that I have a really good reason to take advantage of United’s way discount airfares from Hartford to Seattle. Ya’ll have too much fun not to share!
Yeah, you and your FONT all Dooce-like and stuff. Doncha know Dooce OWNS that font? She also owns the colors blue, grey and green! So back off!
I don’t read Dooce. But I read Flinger.
Party on, Flinger, Queen of Font Stealing!
You evil, evil woman. “Stealing” fonts from the poor, pitiful, defenseless Dooce? What is this world coming to?
OMG, please come when we have our community garage sale in a couple of weeks and ask all of the neighbors ridiculous questions about their crap. Then tell all your friends to buy our crap that is super cheap so I can come to BlogHer with you and laugh/fart with you!!
Get your own FONTS? Yikes, that’s really scraping the bottom of the insult barrell. Next they’ll tell you that you must provide your content via gopher (that’s a geek test because Dooce uses http…
Oh, you thief. Dooce uses the word fart all the time. She’s also known to use nouns, verbs, the occasional pronoun, and throws around a bunch of adjectives all the time. Please refrain from doing the same lest you force me to report you to the interwebs police. k, thanks.
I cannot stop laughing. And farting.
No. Your fault.
I got my first troll in a long time last week. It is funny how pathetic and little their lives must be to take the time to hate on internet bloggers.
Are you out there stealing free fonts again? And here I thought I was the only thief, taking those free samples at the grocery store, sometimes circling my way back around for more so I don’t have to cook my kid dinner. I know you went with someone like Dooce because she only has like 2 readers so what are the chances someone would notice. I personally only read Dooce for her subtle silver border so next time you might want to go with something like that if you want to steal her readers.
Ah to hell with ‘em, I still love you Mrs. Fliger.
I don’t understand what possesses people to take time out of their days to email a complete stranger and tell them they don’t like them. Why waste time reading blogs you don’t like? Are these the same people who walk up to strangers in the grocery store and tell them they’re horrible parents for buying their kids the candy bar at checkout? That’s never happened to me, but I did get some looks from the woman behind us because I let my kid have a jerky stick while I bought 3 candy bars for myself (they were 3 for $0.99! I couldn’t resist) and my husband stocked up on Skittles.
Not that you need my approval, but I’m having serious template envy.
The comments on this are almost as good as the post.
Wow, that’s just… tragic. How dare you steal a free font, use colors, ideas, words and imagery. you’re a bad bad woman.
I’m not popular enough to get hate mail. And I know absolutely zero about web design. Oh, and I hate garage sales. But lest you think this is more hate mail, I HAVE been known to fart a time or two. Does that mean I stole the idea to pass gas from you?
I don’t need to laugh to fart. All I have to do is breath and it happens. Looks like you had fun at the garage sale despite no shoppers.
I watched this with my son and explained to him that a troll was a person who likes to write mean things because they are weird. His response, “So, the lady on the phone tooted on the troll? That is funny.”
If the troll had been smart and a true reader of many years (or even a reader of a few posts ago), s/he would have addressed you as Mrs. Finger.
Fart stealer, I mean font stealer!
Not only do you fart, but you snort, too. Hehee. Your body makes a plethora of noises for our listening enjoyment.
Oh, you crack me up!
*Kicks troll in head*
OMG that was SO funny - the video.
The troll is even funnier. I’m totally gonna call you later and ask for Fliger.
OMG, can I have a garage sale with you guys? I’ve never had that much fun at one. If it were that slow, we could plan a We Hate Haters Club.
Whoops - sorry - I pass gas in the presence (no, not presents) of asshats (no, not YOU) like, 126.96.36.199!
Hmmm… didn’t know that once you used a font you owned it. I’d better go take the Times Roman and Arial off all my posts.
If you look at “dooce flinger” the right way (like, say, a twelve year old boy) it looks dirty.
In just about any font.
I’ve often heard it said that only the good get trolls . . . so, um, you should be honored?
Don’t let ‘em get to ya.
ok, that’s just too funny. Now I gotta put you on my feedreader just to see how you you rip off dooce some more lol
OMG that video had me CRYING! Too f’ing hilarous. Especially when the gal says “And she wants to know if you’ll take fifty cents for it…” and then “I know! Especially after all those questions!”
Priceless. I wanna come to your next garage sale… I promise not to fart (much)...
I am so sad that I am late to the troll bashing. But seriously, Comic Sans is mine. Don’t even think about stealing it. ALL MINE! And Times New Roman, totally mine too. Off limits, bitch. Also, I poot when I laugh really hard or sneeze. It started after I had my daughter. I thank her for this new talent daily..not.
Personally I don’t find Dooce all that funny and I’ve never subscribed to her feed but I’m subscribed to your soooooooo…
I love your site! It looks great—-and not at all like Dooce’s. Boo hoo to the trollies.
LMAO.. this is my first visit to your blog, and I think you’re hilarious and fun!!
Trolls are such sad people!
You fart when you laugh? I pee when I sneeze. You & I would be a riot at an outdoor comedy club during allergy season.
