The owner is/was somebody like Mren as I recall.
Bonk would say something that consisted of three or four words and then /bonk at the end of the snippet of what he wrote. Duh was the Dumb and Dumber version of Bonk only he said "Duh!" at people to annoy them. Jerry Springer, as I remember, didn't last long since there was another Jerry that popped up only with a slightly different spelling and the lack of discernable differences between them cancelled them out like matter/anti-matter. Nobody could distinguish between them, so what was the point? He died a quiet lonely death.
GWB has been mildly entertaining for me. It would have been funnier though if he remained in character, adopted the same speech mannerisms that our own heroic RL GWB has, but the cursing, steroidal rage-thing kinda turned it into just another button pusher.
You see, people, if you are going to make a troll/sockpuppet you have to spend some time over on TOT. They know how to do it right because trolls/sockpuppets is what that board consists entirely of and is done professionally. They make a puppet-- generally from a current news event or celebrity --and run with it staying completely in character, but saying funny stuff. They leave their main character to do all the political and religious discussion, blah blah blah so that it is understood when they want a serious talk.
I'm sorry to say, but over here it comes off as being amateurish. But then, if you want to run a troll around, why not go over there and take a lesson from people who know how to do it right? It's one of the things I've learned: don't pi$$ and poop where you eat. And take the play to playground. I've got dozens upon dozens of trolls over there, and am a regular poster, but never bring that stuff here. Why? Because this is me. The RL me. I prefer to maintain a separation between what I do over in other places and what I do here. While you may not agree with me-- and that's fine --it still comes off as a little kid playing dress-up in his daddy's clothes. So while sockpuppets don't annoy me, I just shrug and know that there are others who do it soooo much better elsewhere.
