It’s Done!!!!!!

I bring you the very first confrontation between Thuperman and Escalatario!!!!!

When I first put the image up it was too big to see all at once so I just resized it. It should work ok now.

At any rate, without any further ado, I give you THE FIRST ENCOUNTER!!!!

(you can tell I think it’s significant because I keep using exclamation points)

    HAHAHA!

    for fucks sake mexi.

  4. Ghandi from the "D" says:

    Man you are hilarious!

  5. Mexigogue says:

    Hilarious???? What about the dramatic tension between the two characters? The verbal reparte, the inner conflict? The suspense?? What about the heartfelt acting, body language and. . .

    Ok, fine. I’ll accept hilarious. I was actually hoping for an Oscar.

  6. Ghandi from the "D" says:

    If you ever start taking this writing stuff serious there would be alot more than just a Oscar coming your way!!

  7. rae says:

    Geez I soooo miss u!! This was almost “pee my pants” funny. Almost.

  8. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    how long did it take oyu to comeup with that?

  9. Mexigogue says:

    The idea came to me just today. The actual making of the .gif file took maybe 45 minutes to an hour. It would have been quicker but I’m just getting used to Paint Shop Pro 8.

  10. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    get good at that animated .gif stuff….. Hey my wife is out of town this weekend. Gonna be pure boozing and slut chasing. I can’t wait hopefully by Monday I’lll have a new bar slut story

  11. Ghandi from the "D" says:

    Get a L– Dance for me UNLV.

  12. Mexigogue says:

    I need to get married again. I miss the thrill of cheating.

    It’s not cheating if oyur wife is out of town……

    MEXI YOU DO NOT NEED TO GET MARRIED AGAIN- EVER!!!

    ?? i see no episode, just a sign saying “thuperman versus e-whatshisname”. I’m kind of disappointed.

    Opera. I’ll try with IE.

  19. Aidan says:

    there was some interesting body language there. From Escalatario’s posture, I could tell he wanted a blow job. but he didn’t have the courage to ask for what he needed, and thuperman was far too polite to push the issue. oh well.

  20. TB says:

    posture says volumes about blow job wants and needs

  21. Aidan says:

    >posture says volumes about blow job wants and needs

    yeah it’s about as realistic as “get away from me”

  22. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Adian,
    Do you actually pay attention to what you post or do you just go around and disagree with everyone on anything? Do you have any friends?

  23. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    On a happier note the wife and I finally agreed on a house. Actually she agreed and I didn’t object. We made the offer yesterday and should know by 5:00 today if they accept. Check it out Mexi…

  24. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Just talked to my real estate agent, the house owners got 2 other offers yesterday. Now it’s up to who made the best offer. I guess we have a 1 in 3 chance we’ll see. Rae could probably shed some light on this subject

  25. rae says:

    Well, what is in their best interest right now is to Counter everyone’s offers. Then it just comes down to what you are willing to do. A home’s true value is what the buyer is willing to pay and the seller is willing to sell it for. If I was in your shoes, I would make a list of everything that your dream home has and compare that to this house. How long have you been looking? If you just started looking and this isn’t close enough to your dream home and the market there is solid and you are not on a time contraint-keep looking. If you just have to have this home- then accept their counter offer- you may even want to accept it with no contingencies (i.e. inspections). Is it contingent upon your home selling first or do you not own one now??

  26. Mexigogue says:

    Since I am the Creator of these characters I’m pretty familiar with their motivations. Escalario’s posture indicates that he’s still REALLY REALLY pissed off about being sucked into the internal machinery of an escalator. He’s looking for someone to blame but so far he has only himself. Then this clown comes bouncing in and gets too close to him. He’s like NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO MESS WITH ME. Thuperman assumes Escalatio’s problem is homophobia because Thuperman is egocentrict but that is not the case. The world is not all about Thuperman.

  27. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    We don’t have a house now and starting Jan 1 our lease can go month to month so we are pretty flexable on moving and move times. I really don’t care what house we get it is pretty much up to the wife. Me personally I could live in a shack as long as I got a tv and a bed. The housing market out here is insane, every decent house that comes on the market has like 2-3 offers in the first 36 hours. The house we looked at yesterday came avaliable Sunday morning and we were the 21st set of people that looked at it by yesterday afternoon….

  28. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    esco what’s his name is obviously homophobic and should be boiled in k-y jelly

  29. rae says:

    Well then you need to make your Realtor EARN their commission!! Have you signed a buyer’s agency agreement with your Realtor? If not- DON”T until you interview a few other brokers. If you have- ask them if they have connections that enable them to find out about homes before they come on the market. It’s all about who you know. A lot of times, Realtor’s have clients that are looking for a house to buy when there home hasn’t gone on the market yet- those are the people that you should pursue-and try to PRE-VIEW their homes. Alot of brokers would be happy to avoid the overhead of listing their client’s home by having you buy it before it goes on the market. Otherwise, you may want to scope out a few neighborhoods that you like and then just drive through them on Saturday’s and Sundays- those are the most commom days for a home to get listed. Unfortunately- by the time the sign gets in the yard it’s usually already sold. With a market like that you have to have the best Realtor around to make sure you don’t end up paying out the wazoo for what you want.

  30. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Thx Rae,
    We haven’t signed anything with our broker so we are not locked into anything. I’ll ask him about previewing some homes…..Good idea

  31. Adian says:

    Homophobe. UNLV is trying to buy a house in a country where it is illegal for me to marry another man shame shame!!!!

  32. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Adian is right. If posture can signal fear then I suppose it can also signal the desire of a homosexual encounter.

    >Escalatio’s problem is homophobia

    Well, Escalatio’s problem WOULD be homophobia (or maybe just confusion, ignorance or even stupidity) if he blamed being sucked into the internal mechanism of an escalator on marrying gay couples (who presumably are just as at risk of being sucked into the internal mechanism of an escalator as anyone else).

    >because Thuperman is egocentrict

    Actually, Thuperman’s a pretty good judge of people, and he is aware that Escalatio is falsely blaming (i.e., scapegoating) a certain minority group for his some of the problems he faces in life. Escalatio feels helpless re: the escalator, perhaps, and seeks to lash out at some group. This is understandable, but not acceptable.

    >but that is not the case. The world is not all
    >about Thuperman.

    My hunch is that Thuperman understands it is his duty to be a thorn in people’s side.

  34. Aidan says:

    Of course men signal sexual interest through posture, although most of the time it’s unconscious, they aren’t even aware of what they’re doing. This is hardly a homosexual thing though.

    queer people don’t use k-y jelly, that’s more of a suburban, mums & dads, monogamous, boring, sex once a month, sexual lubricant. 🙂

    Yes, but if the Democrats had been in office the past 4 years, that house would be twice as big (as would your bank balance). Guess you’re willing to vote ‘principle’ (or is that ideology) over your own pocket-book. 🙂

    but seriously, congratulations on your new home. all you need to do now is squeeze out a few kids, and your life will be complete, right?

  38. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    No!

  39. Phelps says:

    4 more years of Democrats is the magic bullet for economic wealth?

    I thought I smelled a crackhead.

  40. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    My life won’t be complete until I rule the world and Ass Monkey’s like Adian are toiling in the salt mines!!

  41. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    If the Liberals were still in power, I wouldn’t be able to afford that house because instead of a 5.375% mortgage I would have had to pay 8% plus steeper property taxes and probably some sort of luxury tax ’cause I’m not living in gumment sponsored projects…

  42. rae says:

    UNLV- in case you are confused- when you buy a house you can right off your interest and tax payments- at the beginning of your mortgage you pay mostly interest so it is to your ADVANTAGE to have a higher interest rate for tax purposes when you first buy a home and don’t have any equity. Of course when you buy your second home and have a bigger down payment and less of a principal a lower rate it to your advatage- but not that much.

  43. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    I understand the whole write off interest on my income tax scenario…Let’s say for the sake or argument that I pay 8% on a 200k loan that is 16k for the first year, 5.375% on a 200k loan is 10.5k per year. Now lets pretend that my taxable income is 90k per year and I am filing jointly. The 8% loan is still going to cost me more in the long run. Yeah I’ll get a bigger tax return at the end of the year, but that just meant that the gumment over charges me and holds on my money until the begining of the year when I have to go beg them for it back….Here is a very simple tax chart showing the difference between an 8% and 5% mortgag loan…Clearly it is advantageous to have the 5% loan
    Taxable income – Interest – Tax = my pocket
    90,000 – 16,000 – 11980 = 62020
    90,000 – 10,682 – 13500 = 65818

  44. Phelps says:

    Tax breaks are never as good as actually saving the money. Which would you rather do — save a percentage of a percentage, or just save the percentage itself? Also, getting a house that is front loaded with a lot of interest and not much equity is dan-ger-ous. If the housing market crashes, and it turns out that your home loses more value than the equity accounts for, then you could end up upside down and a lot of mortgages have forclosure provisions if you end up upside down.

  45. Mexigogue says:

    Boy, don’t I know about that:

    If I pay my child support I won’t have any money foreclose.

  46. rae says:

    Okay- since I don’t have time to explain it in further detail — let me just say that I’ve been in this business for 8 years and know what i’m talking about but can’t explain it for the simple-minded to get in a few sentences. UNLV- your property taxes are based on the price of the house so they wouldn’t go up with a bigger interest rate.

  47. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Rae,
    You missed my point. My point is that under a Democratic regeim all property taxes, income taxes and Mortgage rates would be higher. I understand that mortage rates are a seperate issue from income and property taxes(which are local and not federal) ……..Come on I’m smarter than that now no simple mind here :). I feel you on that Phelps that is why when we get our house we’ll be putting 20-25% down….

  48. Phelps says:

    let me just say that I’ve been in this business for 8 years and know what i’m talking about but can’t explain it for the simple-minded to get in a few sentences.

    Wow. That’s pretty tall talk when both Guy and me were able to explain it in a few sentences. Here it is in a few words: A percentage is always bigger than a percentage of the first percentage.

    Being in the business taints your knowledege — you know what to say to people to get people to buy. “Don’t worry about the rate being higher tha you want! It all comes off your taxes!” That ranks right up with “It’s good for your hair! There’s protein in it!”

  49. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    I think I know what confused Rae on my tax chart. I’ll make it clearer the here..
    Taxable Income – Interest Deduction = New Taxable Income(NTI)
    90,000 – 16,000 = 74,000
    90,000 – 10,682 = 79,318

    NTI – Income Tax due = My Pocket
    74,000 – 11,980 = 62,020
    79,318 – 13,500 = 65818

    Basiaclly at the end of the first year with the tax break it costs me $3,800 more to have an 8% loan than a 5.375% loan.
