    I thought that was what I've been doing in YMAS with the various threads I start there. Let me infiltrate a few more MA Facebook groups to really get the goods.

    I think it is funny that the Booj guys have their own anti-Bush in MA group. They just haven't let me in yet.

    To have a chance, the defendant typically has to use some other McDonaldish emblem, like arches or burgers with a "Mc" prefix.

    I think it'd be a hard sell for McDonalds to convince a judge that a Shinto torii would confuse customers. It's also clearly a parody.
    Their US quarter pounder with cheese is a pretty good value for the price.

    I feel like that they have done a lot of work on this product offering, and deserve some recognition.

    Also, I remain a fan, in a pinch, of their egg mcmuffin and hash browns.

    And their coffee, which I prefer to Starbucks on any day of the week for several reasons.

    Or the BHI BJJ guys who claim to be fire benders... well when they start actually bending fire we'll have what to talk about, but I cant see making a MABS thread about that, and my YMAS attempt was quickly derailed on some odd discussion of the differences between religious identity and ethnic identity. I was really hoping some Bully close to the guy would step up and ask the dude to singe him with a bic lighter like Pyro in the X-Men movies. Dude claims he can do it, this I wanted to see.

    In conclusion calling BS on martial arts has kinda been done now. McDojolife is just a comedy feed of our beat moments.
    Sure, you're right. That's a component of why I stopped giving a shit about picking on those low-hanging fruitcackes for much bigger and deadlier game—to mix the fuck out of the metaphors. That, and, you know, the existential threat to civilization posed by people who believe bullshit and vote accordingly.

    That said though, if anyone wants to teabag that particular soy sauce as the Martial Arts BS editor, just start doing it. Don't suck, but otherwise, get some.

My role is to provide a platform and support for that fight, not do it all myself. Go kick some ass, use what we've built here and our reputation to do it.

    Especially some of you old pricks who were actually there back in the day.

    Then again, they could be doing a doco on current fake martial arts, of which we as a community have since abdicated.

    Anyway, thought it worth discussion.
    Well considering he cribs most of his stuff from the Bullshido Wiki and other old threads here, you would think we would get credited anyway. However, he's a millenial(sp intentional for the Latin lovers), and this is the age of the internet influencers and content creators so I highly doubt it.

    All things considered, me either. My guess is because it is a single guy in Instagram.
