I wish the ignore feature worked to where I just didn't see the person's posts whatsoever. Like... vanish them like a ghost. Instead it's "this post is not visible because you have ignored the person" and there's no way I have the impulse control to ignore that. It's why I have so many Reese's cups in my freezer. (They were on sale this week.)

I keep hearing about this ignore feature but I can never find it. There are only a handful of people here who annoy me so thankfully it hasn't been too big an issue

 

Edit: Thanks odessasteps, that did the trick!

So when did Taz start his "_____ Jones" gimmick, and is there a story behind it?

I noticed "Mezzanine Jones" in the Roddy/Jericho FCA a couple weeks ago, and at the ppv he said "Kendo stick Jones." I assume it's a running gag, and it's amazing.

Most importantly, is there a video comp of all his Joneses?

In Impact 14 years ago, there was a Wrestler called Rob Terry. He comes from Swansea, Wales.

Taz' co-commentator, Jerermy Borash was attempting to put Swansea over by mentioning all the famous people who came from the area. Now Dylan Thomas isn't a very contemporary reference, but there were a couple of people who are. Tom Jones, and Catherine Zeta Jones.

And mentioning those two back to back caused Taz to fixate upon the name Jones for the rest of the broadcast, and indeed all subsequent broadcasts.

Silly question: I may need more coffee, but I don't get it - is Mansury hearing-impaired or something?

People are getting on his case primarily for how the arena was mic'd at Double or Nothing.

i have always appreciated his '__ Jones' bit, but never knew its genesis. i always just assumed it started on SmackDown at some point i wasn't watching. thank you!

  • Darby Allin
  • The Hardys
  • Hook
  • Toni Storm
  • Anna Jay
  • Dax (no Cash is my understanding)

Who gets to do the concession stand brawl?

He was definitely doing it on his radio show/podcast back when I was an infrequent listener, which feels like a decade ago

I don't think of it as a New York thing but my dad (Queens) used to do it on occasion (cheeseburger jones if I ordered a cheeseburger and things of that nature).  I'm pretty sure with him it's from the Cheech & Chong song though, which is jonesing for something

Someone needs to ask Taz about it

Toni/Britt feels logical, but I'm concerned about how apocalyptically horny it would make certain corners of the internet.

Wouldn't it be funny if TK decided to buy the rights to Kris Statlander's indie music as a present to her, but accidentally bought the Aaliyah song, instead of the Bee Gees one of the same title?
