What's the over/under on how long it takes Geoff to tell that other site to "remove that shit" so that there's less stuff on the internet to back up allegations that Paul Nomad is a shill for Shocker?


  1. Does this mean I can come (back) to Schwapp to follow the unfolding saga of Sucker Toys?

  2. As new information presents itself, I'll gladly cover it.

  3. Looks like CBR has beaten you to the punch...YABS is following the good news, bad news I guess.
