Just letting our dear readers know that we're still around and not going anywhere. February has, historically, been a month that we take a bit of a break from the blog. However we are currently doing a little bit of research and digging up a little bit of information for future articles.
For example, right now we're trying to figure out why Dustyn Johnson and Robert Reitmeier (Vladimir Tepes) now appear to have some administrative control of the Aryan Guard forum. Very, very curious.
For now we will share a story with our dear readers who are not in the know. This story is how Puddles got his nickname.
As we spent time learning more about Mike Gaio, we noticed that there were a number of people who referred to him as Puddles. We also noticed that Gaio really hated that name and argued that the event it referred to never took place.
Our interest piqued, we contacted a friend who we believed could let us in on this apparent inside joke. This is the story that friend told us:
There were a group of S.H.A.R.P. skins and redskins having a drink together at a local pub. Gaio, apparently drunk, saw them and tried to cause trouble. The group confronted Gaio and gave him an option; fight like a man or he might as well sit in a nearby puddle and slap himself.
So he sat in the puddle and slapped himself.
The S.H.A.R.P. skins and redskin, who were both amused and disgusted at the same time, just walked away and left him.
We have no way to confirm whether this story is true, though we tend to believe our friend. Gaio himself actually denies that it happened, or at least happened as it was described to us. We don't know when the incident is alleged to have happened in the first place.
What we do know is that Gaio really, really hates being called Puddles.
