The Ponemaster visits Fort Worthless
This little menace you're looking at here is the originator of the word "poned." It happened by a chance encounter last summer when he strolled onto our tour bus and started making fun of our production manager. no one knew who he was, why or even how he got on our bus. but as the legend goes, he began to verbally berate and belittle a 35 year old man who he didn't know at all; all the while yelling at the top of his lungs "OOOHHH!!!! YOU JUST GOT PONED!!!" to this very day, i have never seen anything like it. at one point our production manager said to him, "if i hear another word out of you, i'm kicking you off this bus." to which the Ponemaster counteracted with, "if i pone you one more time, it'll be a new world record." his pones covered a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to: your mom, ugliness, weight, age, your job...virtually anything. He said the word "poned" was formed as a combination of other diss words such as "punk'd" "burned" "owned" "schooled" etc. he is truly a special kid. It took practically no time for us to think this was absolutely hilarious and adopt the word into our vernacular and it hasn't left since. in fact, it's only spread to the rest of america. here's a photo i took of POPSTAR magazine just last month when PONED was on the front cover:
this young man is obviously a genius and the use of his word is as prevalent today as its ever been in our camp. he came to watch the show today. it was an honor to play for him...
ps - i actually like Fort Worth but calling it Fort Worthless was just too good to pass up. sorry Forth Wortheners.
