There are words in the English language that trigger pictures in people minds that usually differ from what it means.

Top three I can think of right now:
"I'm from New Mexico I am inspired by the work of adult swim and like to post audio examples of what excites on the forum at muffwiggler.com."

Which somehow got translated into
"I'm a mexican thats into porn!"

Its funny, even in Arizona(well these people arent from here) people don't know where New Mexico is and only hear "mexico", as for adult swim,
I'm still amazed at how many people still don't know what that is,
Muff Wiggler, well that is easy for the distracted mind to come up with
things all sorts of things related to perverseness :lol:

I'm sure cartoon network gets LOTS of flack when parents see the word "adult" on the cartoon channel.
I'm sure they have had similar discussions like the ones in this thread.

That said, go watch Assy Mcgee:
http://www.adultswim.com/video/index.html

That is definitely the funniest one I have ever seen....

Yep-- at the risk of veering terribly off-topic... New Mexico = The Texas/Arizona border.

Seriously, though, people really seem to forget that NM is in the USA sometimes.

As for Adult Swim... Robot Chicken is one of the joys of my life.

I guess that if:

• you know nothing about Electro-Harmonix (especially their '70s era ad campaigns)
• you believe that your personal emotional reaction to external stimuli should govern the actions of others
• you were raised to believe that people are inherently evil

Then you'd have problems with the name of an audio/synth forum.

You even used the correct fonts. I got the allusion right away. Funny shit.

maybe it's not blocked. try ass-spelunkers.com first. if that's blocked then it's confirmed.

You know, I genuinely thought it was because you were involved in sound recording for films/tv and you had one of those big furry mics they have to hold above people or push through crowds at interview.

Personally, When I first saw the forum on AH I never thought of it as a non-PC name. Just some guy making a forum with a goofy name. I thought of it as your "handle". When I talk about stuff in the forums IRL we all call it "Muff's".

Yeah I tend to think of it as "Muff's" as well, that's what everyone says.

Except my kids, which call it, explicitly, every time, "Muff's Modules And More".

"Hey Dad, how long ago did you start Muff's Modules And More?"

"Where do you know Kent from? Muff's Modules And More?"

"Did you get that module from someone at Muff's Modules And More?"

it's pretty funny.

I think a modular bar is in order.

"Muff's" sounds like it would be a rad bar. Beer + modulars.

You don't actually tell them that we met during the course of a "mutually consenting adults' paid transaction" do you?

ok, muff wiggler is totally inoffensive as far as i am concerned but what gets me is that there exist people who seem offended by the fact that they might find at some point come across (ooo err missus) something offensive? how dull do they want their lives to be???

anyway, top marks to danelctro for the FAB Flange byline "no it's not a compliment" :hihi:

Well, a muff is a thing for keeping hands warm, or ears warm. A wiggler is a form of bait. Oh my I'm so offended! Seriously, offense is usually found by those with the dirtiest minds.

This thread is great and totally worthy of a six-month old bump.

-The name cracks me up, personally.
-If I told my mother or a date that I was a member of the muffwiggler forum, I would have more explaining to do than I would care for.
-I'm pretty surprised no porn site has offered you mega-$$$ for the url, because it's that naughty.

Cheers,
Brian
