Joe Rogan lays down the law on MySpace

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 8th 2006 9:10AM

joe roganThe unfiltered venue the internet provides, coupled with the promise of anonymity, has made it easier than ever for people to be rude and obnoxious to one another. I've been doing this "Web" thing long enough and seen enough hastily-typed insults from "anonymous" posters that I've learned the best approach is to simply ignore them.

But this isn't about me. This is about Joe Rogan (39), who does not, dag nabbit, ignore anyone who dare to lob a disparaging remark in his direction. When a 20 year old college student sent Rogan (who, again, is 39) this pithy message through MySpace: "Joe Rogan, I hate you... you're not funny... " Rogan (did I mention he's in his late thirties?) immediately shot back, resulting in this e-mail exchange. I haven't seen a battle of wits like this between a young kid and a grown man twice his age since yesterday when I got in a shouting match with a fifteen year old girl over whether Bubbles or Buttercup was the better Powerpuff Girl.

Joe was on the immortal classic, NewsRadio. He gets a free pass from me for life, and that includes FearFactor and e-mail battles with college kids.

"Your name is Garelli?"

Adam Finley how old are you? You sound like you're menstruating. Joe Rogan decided not to take shit from some net-punk, im sure in your world this is blasphemy since you hold famous people to such an elite, untouchable status, that if they DARE to communicate with the inferior common folk you are just shocked outta your panties.

Joe Rogan was funny that one time he was on Breuer's Sirius Radio Show and handed out Pot Lolipops ... too bad he feels washed up (maybe left out) as the host of Fear Factor.

Funniest dig at a reality show host I've ever read:
"My apologies... I should have shown Joe Rogan MUUUUCH more respect. Actor? Comedian? Shakespearian extrodinaire.."

And by the way? I'm pretty sure that using insults like "shut up, fat boy" as Rogan does over and over was something I stopped seeing in 8th grade.

This kid must have had an amazing laugh doing this - I can just see him sitting in a dorm room with a few buddies, having a few drinks... "Holy crap! Rogan actually responded... Let's see how long we can keep him going!"

what's more amazing is that I'm only halfway through and can't spend any more time reading it right now. Looking forward to finishing at lunch :P
