Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Hi All;

There is disturbing evidence that clones of me are attempting to demean my reputation by making math and spelling errors on other forums. See this link:

http://www.mathisfunforum.com/viewtopic … 69#p125969

I wish to allay everyone's fears right now. There is only one bobbym. Just because they live in the same place as I do is not reason to suspect that those counterfeits are me.

True, they solve math problems somewhat similar to me, why not? They are clones! Evil alien clones. I am asking for a little faith in accepting the fact that I am me and they are not.

I did suspect once that PowerOfPi at AoPS was the same as LuisRodg over here because they had the same avatar; now I’m not so sure.

I know that, you wouldn't do that. These impostors are hideous creatures. Some say they are clones, some say they are shape shifters. Whatever they are, and wherever they are from, we are on to them now.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Maybe those impostors are extra-terrestrial, I know I've had impostors before... Then there was one time when I had to be my own impostor. I hope they're not taking over, I mean, one of each is enough.

Possibly, not true. The world could use a few more bobbym's. Forget it, not just a few more how about millions more? Then people could see them everywhere.

I don't know whether or not it is a good thing. It is just something the world needs badly.

What? The world does not need bobbym's everywhere. If I were ever certain of anything it is that.

As usual I disagree. The bobbym's will take over the world. I will not help them but it will happen.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

You could at least help try to stop them. But if you won't then I'll just find myself another hero who will. It might  be okay for you to see yourself everywhere, but I beg to differ. If taking over the world were that easy, everyone would've done it by now.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Do you? They're mindless drones for all we know. They probably have an ultimate evil leader, which I reckon is probably Phrontister's impostor. I bet there's a 'resistance' or 'rebellion' out there right now ready to blow those mindless drones to smithereens. And then they'll give phrontister's impostor a choice: "Surrender or die". Or y'know something like that. Then your next post will be like, "Dudette, you've been watching too many movies, too much Terminator, and been reading too many comics." But don't worry, I'm prepared for that. Maybe I'll go out and lead the resistance. Like John Connor did. Well, actually the starting to your post wouldn't go like that. It would start like: "Hi Tigeree;" or "Hi Tiggy;" or just Tig, or just even Hi;. Yeah.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Dudette? I wouldn't use that. I never say dude or dudette. Valley talk isn't my thing. I'll call you Jess.

They're mindless drones for all we know.

If they are mindless drones then they are taking orders from someone a heck of alot smarter than me.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Yeah, I know you don't use valley talk, that's my thing. But y'know the word 'Dude' was invented by Oscar Wilde, so don't blame me. I believe he said it was a mix of attitude and duds. You'll call me Jess? That's like the first time ever. touched Oh, your gunna make me cry again. And for your last statement: Obviously.

Hi Tigeree;

If you go here you will see that I used your name several times already.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

You have? Oh, shows my memory, huh? Oh yeah, that topic that I try not to remember. That was when I first told you my name is Jess. That was a while ago. But, I guess it was kind of pointless since you still called me Tigeree just now. Anyway, If your not willing to help fight the impostors, then I will find a small band of people who will. I bet phrontister will help, unless he's been taken captive, then I'll have to find some more people. Whilst fighting off this reptile that's supposedly trying to eat me.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Hi Tigeree,

...unless he's been taken captive

I'm writing from my study, where my computer keeps me captive for longer than I should allow.

...this reptile that's supposedly trying to eat me

You're quite safe, as long as the eating never becomes more real than 'supposedly'!

Anyway, the lingering reptile thought is just an aberration, as Bobby tossed that beast into the Vending Machine. Say goodbye to it! wave

True, but the vending machine may not accept it. It might get spit back out.

Like it's clone army came out. Oh well, guess it's a fight to the death. Although I think I might be losing my head in this mess. With what Phro said an' all...

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

The thread title carries a grammatical mistake too! After all, the original bobbym isn't that good at grammar
