There's a saying in the Internet world, "Don't feed the trolls."
A troll is someone who stays hidden behind the anonymity of the Internet while casting stones (negative, hurtful words) at Internet writers. If someone disagrees with a post or an opinion they're not a troll if it's done in a respectful manner. If they spew hate, and hurt, and venom just to get attention they are.
Sometimes the term "troll" is used more loosely by bloggers to refer to anyone sending us weird shit just because they can.
I say all this, because surely someone is going to read today's post and then write and tell me I shouldn't have written it because by doing so I'm "feeding a troll." (Giving a troll the attention he/she craves.)
I've thought about this very thing for a few days, however, in this case I don't consider the person involved to be a troll. Also? The story is just too funny not to share. Lastly, the person involved in this situation isn't a regular reader so I think it's okay to share the story with all of you.
Every morning I check my email inbox just like millions of other people. Writing Twenty Four At Heart guarantees I never know what I'll find when I do. Last week I received an email from "just a regular guy" in England who had read my post on Well Endowed Men.
As background, I wrote that post originally strictly for the laugh factor. It made me laugh, and I knew it would make many of you laugh. A funny thing happened, however. It has become one of my most widely read posts. Tens of thousands of people all over the world have read my Well Endowed Men post. I certainly didn't expect that to happen when I wrote it.
In addition, I've gotten a lot of emails from people regarding its contents. Most of them are from Well Endowed Men wanting to agree or disagree with points (ha!) made by the men interviewed. Many of them want to share the ups and downs (ha again!) of being a Well Endowed Man with me.
These are serious, very sincere, emails I receive. It will give you some idea of how many I've received when I tell you I've become very accustom to Well Endowed Men writing to me.
"Oh, it's another email from a Well Hung Endowed Man," I think when I open them to read.
Ho hum. Just another day in the life of Twenty Four At Heart.
Come to think of it, maybe I should start a dating service? Who else hears from Well Endowed Men as often as I do?
All of that being said, I was not surprised to get yet another email from a Well Endowed Man last week. He wanted to give me feedback on my post and share with me some of his experiences as a Well Endowed Man.
He told me of experiences like neighbors and teachers and "mums good friends" pursuing him due to his … natural assets. Like the men I interviewed for the original post, he explained the difficulties of finding appropriate fitting clothing and condoms.
He also sent photos of himself so I could see he's just a "regular guy." The photos were of himself, clothed. Yes, there was a quite visible bulge in his pants, but for all I know it was a sock he stuffed in there before having someone click a few photos.
(Oops, maybe I shouldn't have admitted written that?)
I've cropped his face out of this photo (to protect his identity) just to give you a general idea of what he was referring to.
The humor really kicked in when I took the situation to Twitter. Honestly, the reason I love Twitter so much is because of the laughs it gives me. People can be so witty in 140 characters or less.
I haven't asked for permission to share tweets here so I'm going to leave the authors quoted below anonymous. Here's a sample of some of the Twitter conversation regarding the correspondence from my Well Endowed reader.
TwentyFour: Some guy in England just sent me an email about his 12 inch …. Why did he think I needed to hear about that?
TwentyFour: He even sent photos of himself (clothed) to prove he's just a "regular guy" Why, why, why??
TwentyFour: And yes, there is a big bulge in his pants, however it might just be a SOCK.
Tweeter#1: Or a sausage. Sausages are big in England.
Tweeter#2: Dude. Ask him for a penis shot.
TwentyFour: @Tweeter#2 I hate to encourage him. I don't want him mailing me a free ticket to England. Altho it has been a long time since I visited
TwentyFour: Visited England that is … not a 12 incher. That's nobody's business now is it? : )
Tweeter#3: What the heck are you talking about, woman? I'm afraid to look at the thread.
TwentyFour: @Tweeter#3 You'll have to look at thread on this one. It's an *ahem* loooooooong story.
Tweeter#4: (A man) Tell him to bugger off.
Tweeter#2: Hey you're just asking for a photo of his 'little man,' it's not like you're proposing or anything. heh.
Tweeter#5: Email him about your bionic nipples! They don't shrink to nothing in the pool! Lol!
Tweeter#6: Just caught "12 incher" … thus attracting my complete attention.
Tweeter#3: Got it … Apparently we are going to England to check out a dude that wants to show @TwentyFour his ample natural asset.
Tweeter#6: If you insist. RT @Tweeter#3 We're going to England to check out dude who wants to show @TwentyFour ample natural asset.
The funny thing is …. The women who are Tweeter#3 and Tweeter
#6 have not been heard from since. I do believe they might really be on their way to England to meet him.
