Hyperbolic Rebirth June 3, 2014

Hyperbolic Rebirth

It’s been years since the last post on CU…mostly resulting from a complete lack of interest by both the readers (all two of them) and the author (who constituted half of the readership). The spirit of CU didn’t die, it has just been losing the battle to laziness. However, like the Phoenix, the driving force behind this mastery of satire, wisdom, and wit has finally kicked laziness’ ass. I’m pretty sure that’s the EXACT myth of the Phoenix. To that end, Pointyhead is coming out of his work/life-induced coma to share his thoughts with…well…no one except those who get redirected here from rubbish search engines.

And to you, intrepid searcher (for porn, probably), I ask you to prepare yourself for the AWESOME!

Thinking Blog Award: Kudos or Cause for Concern June 18, 2007

Last week (or the week before…it’s difficult to pinpoint the actual date as the Chogey timeline is typically a blur of mind-numbing days interspersed by moments of pure hell), Chogeys United was broadsided by something completely unexpected—an award. While the details are still a bit sketchy, and the use of mind altering chemicals has not yet been completely ruled-out, The Ominous Comma included CU bestowed the “Thinking Blog” award to CU and a few other “worthy” blogs (listed below)

Scrambled Toast
It Came from Allen’s Brain
Mattress Police
Life in M-Town

The elation of being awarded ANYTHING, much less something that included the word “thinking”, was soon replaced by suspicion and then outright paranoia. Don’t get me wrong, we at CU are certainly proud of our cynical, infrequent, and often infantile posts. Our charter to create a place for all disgruntled and disenfranchised employees worldwide is noble. The suspicion resulting from kudos is from the knowledge that the execution of our charter is lackluster…at best.

I took some time to review the other blogs receiving the award…and was humbled. Each site had a different flavor, but they all shared a common theme of well-constructed, mature (not is a dirty way), and often insightful posts. In contrast, Chogeys United’s content is defined by putting forth the least amount of effort and thought required to avoid plagiarism and get a chuckle from curious onlookers.

That being said, we appreciate the award!

This guy has taken Beer Goggles from “concept” to “reality”. I’m thinking Nobel Prize…

Call to Arms: The Revolution Needs You! May 9, 2007

If you hate your job and believe you are over-educated and underappreciated…you’re in the right place! Chogeys United needs you! While Chogey6 and I are dedicated to providing the foundation for the Chogey Revolution…we’ve vastly underestimated the effort required to provide the quality content YOU deserve.

Sure, we could try harder…spend a little more time to actually create compelling content to build a community…but we’ve decided to label that “Plan B”…and explore options that provide more opportunities for front line reports from chogeys in the field.

What does that mean to you? The short answer is: fame, recognition, and the adoration of chogeys worldwide for years to come. Our selection criteria are few and flexible. If you’ve happened upon this site…you’ve already passed the toughest test. From this point, you just need to raise your hand, step up to the challenge…and glory is yours for the taking.

Stake out your claim in Chogeydom by becoming an official contributor. If you pass our exhaustive screening process, you’ll get a KICK ASS t-shirt…oh, and all that glory stuff I mentioned earlier.

Apply HERE…or become a thumb-sucking inhabitant of Loserville!

Colonels making coffee

I admire the guys in uniform as much as anyone. But, when I see colonels making coffee day after day, and answering phones and managing calendars for generals….I have to ask myself WTF?

Question: How is it a person with 19 years Army experience, and a combat veteran is triple booking meetings in microsoft office? Answer: Because Chogeyism is everwhere.
