Hobbes has since made international headlines when, totally on a lark, he opened up an advice booth and in the process made headlines, eventually getting picked up by a "wacky newswire" and making countless radio station websites in the process. He was even interviewed in audio form by Radio CBC!
Most recently, I gave him the plum assignment of securing the exclusive online interview with the guy who won the "Daryl" Ebay auction for [slash], but I don't believe he ever wrote Hobbes back. TRULY it was not only for him, but indeed for the entire online wrestling community.
Canuck Hobbes: So, my house was broken into last night while I was IMing you Canuck Hobbes: Some Indian Canuck Hobbes: They caught him breaking into a camper a few streets away, he dropped his bag full of ID in our lawn
All true. Instead of going outside I called the cops, woke up my parents and stayed in chat. Fuck that shit, I'm not going outside to get my ass killed when I can talk to internet people.
This was just so great. Thanks for bringing to my attention, CRZ.

I lost all hope for bladder control at this point.

This was my favorite part. Funny as hell.
Isn't it ironic seeing a guy with a "Saved 1" shirt lying in a pool of his own blood with a head-sized hole in the car next to him?
