Penguin Meat?

While walking to lunch today I saw an advertisement for the documentary "March of the Penguins" . Maybe it was the fact that I had a turkey sandwich for lunch but a question popped into my head, "What does penguin meat taste like?"

We humans feast on chicken, turkey, grouse, pigeon, hell just about everything with a feather attached to it's ass. When I saw the ad I couldn't help but think how well fed those penguins look. Those chubby little bastards probably make for a good lean meal.

I gotta figure that the early explorers of Antartica fried up a couple of these little swimmers for a meal. Who wouldn't? Look at how plump and tasty they look. I'm going to do some research into it. I know types of the bird is endangered but I bet theres a recipe out there for almond stuffed penguin.

Link City

I've started to reformat the links here on the site. In the year since I started this thing I've run into to some well written blogs and sites so I've decided to share the wealth with you all.

Enjoy them, some of them may not be of much interest to you, some may offend. But all of them I believe are worth a read. So go try reading something you normally wouldn't. You never know what you'll discover.

Ain't that the truth.

Over at the secret asylum Scary Aaron stated:
"Look at you Keg, always stirring shit up!!! Awww man, thats what I love about ya! No rock unturned!!"

I may just have to put that up in the FUGGO logo. Good stuff Aaron.

At 11:24 am...

Landry commented...
you mean to tell me that you have a BLOG
and you didn't TELL me about it?!?!!?
shame on you! "

For those of you who don't know it was her blog that I found myself addicted to.
Upon my first visit I was hooked. The style and rawness of the writing captivated me in ways I had never encountered before online.
I only went there originally to find out what the difference was between the denim's of the world. I kept coming back for commentary, short stories, and whether she intended to or not a poetry that formed from post to post interweaving itself around the readers psyche like a grape vine.

Quite frankly she's an inspiration. Her commenting here is big for me.
I liken it to having Babe Ruth comment on your swing.
It brings me back to the beginning of Fuggo where I was going to let the world know what I thought of it not giving a shit what it thought.

Now as I look over the past month's worth of posts I realize I had gotten away from the original idea. Maybe it's time to lose the adolescent, cock happy bullshit I've been putting on these pages and instead steer this page back on course.

Of course I could keep on posting fucked up pictures, half naked women, and candy bars as that is real easy to do.

Thank you Landry.

Children and XBL

For the XBL gamers that visit here... hell even for those of you who don't...

My first comic

It sucks. But maybe I just don't understand why people will spend a shitload of money for a workout machine when they can do all the same exercises just by running down to their local park? Workout equipment is expensive, takes up way too much space, and is ugly.

Stop the madness and get outside. The fresh air will do much more for you alone than some silly exercise gadget will. Society has gotten to dependent on making things easier. Fuck that. I have a friend who constantly states "I didn't get this fast by doing it the hard way." Well if that isn't the mantra of modern America I don't know what is.

I'll lay 5-1 odds that all exercise machines have a fine coat of dust on them within 4 months of arriving on a persons doorstep. Hell the exercise bike I got the gf years ago is used more for hanging clothes than anything else now.

Candy and Advice

Have you tried the greatest candybar to trot down Gumdrop Lane in the past 10 years?

This thing will fill your mouth with some much chocolatey, peanut buttery, nougaty goodness you'll think you died and went to Hershey Park. I love these things. All this talk of health, giant rubber band machines, and protein made me think about what I eat that's wrong. After much thought (ok like 3 minutes) the only thing I could come up with as being bad for me was this candy bar. But then look at the name? "Fast Break". Flip them over and you have "Break Fast"... Breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! This candybar is good for me! Dig it!


This section is for you readers that I know through the internet or real life who are in need of some advise. This advise though is for everyone as it is extremely beneficial.

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.

The way to get over the hump is to start humping.

Always use a condom.

Always make sure to keep track of how many people you slept with 11 months ago when the first paternity test comes back with a result you didn't expect.

Get the job done and bullshit at the bar after work.

Abba's "Fernando" is fucking awesome. Listen to it to pick yourself up when your down.

and lastly

3 card poker in Atlantic City is a tough game to win at.

Playing War

August 27, 2005: NETCONG, NJ

Team PA reinforced with troops from NY and CT held their ground against the marauding forces of New Jersey in the NASPBL's latest scenario paintball game SAN's Alamo. An absolute brutal day on the field where yellow paint was the blood and the ground was soaked with it. Both armies clashed over a battlefield a mile long and 3/4 of a mile wide. Yours truly took 4 flags while taking out close to 17 or 18 of the enemy. Of course I was eliminated 10 times but that wasn't enough to be awarded the Golden Crutch. That honor was given to Ram 2600, a product of Staten Island, NY. He took more paint than anyone else on the field that day, but he sent plenty more attackers to their respawn spots.

If you've never played a scenario paintball game you should pinch your ear and drag your ass to the next game in your area. Your doing yourself a great disservice not trying it at least once.

What I Do

After seeing the recent health craze sweeping Blogville I've decided to give everyone a quick example of what I do to keep myself in the remarkable shape that my skinny ass is in.

I east 2 banana's and Raisin Bran for breakfast then...

I go to the park.

Yes seriously. No need for $1700 rubber band machines or 10lbs of Whey. I ride my Haro
Tr 2.2 about 3.5 miles to a park. I then lock it up and start running making my way to the playground area where you will frequently find my ass working out on the jungle gym. Pull ups, crunches, you name it I'm working my ass off with them. Climbing all over the jungle gym allows a person to workout their entire body at one time aiding in endurance and flexability.

Following that it's another mile down the road on the bike to a local high school stadium where I run it's 200+ steps up and down as many times as I can. After I'm beat it's 4.5 miles back home on the bike. When I get there it's hindu squats (google them, thank me later) before hitting the pool to cool off.

There you have it, simple, and easy. You would be shocked by the amount of people I've convinced to work out on the monkey bars. It's free, exhilarating, and best of all it's keeps the child in us alive. Something I fear many "grown ups" have lost.

Greased Pigs

Per request I give you my friends greased pigs, as found with a google image search. As well as some others that came up in the search.

Ok maybe I threw that last one in because I'm a slut.

personal copy of Super Ghouls and Ghosts for the Game Boy Advance. The game comes with no box or instructions, just the cartridge. Yes your going to win something!

Name all of the following figures:

Good luck, I fully anticipate many wrong answers.

Daily Updating

When I started this blog over a year ago it was simply as a test. I wanted to try and develop my skills regarding web development . So far so good I think. I've indeed learned alot since June of 04'. Back then blogging was just starting to enter the mainstream consciousness. I read 2 blogs (catspit and moufaisbad) on a semi-daily schedule and really enjoyed them meeting people through the circles surrounding the blogs and really getting turned on to the whole idea.

If you haven't noticed by now Fuggo has been averaging an update or more every single day of the work week for the last month or so. I'd probably post stuff here on the weekends if I didn't have a life but thankfully I do. I've really gotten into trying to come up with something everyday. While most people use blogs to talk about their personal lives and what's going on in them I'd rather try and entertain, inform, confuse, maybe even irritate the reader into some form of written response. So far it's working. The Kelly Monaco post was the highest clicked post in this blog's history with turtle humping from the Philly Zoo placing a near second. This proves that you are all horny bastards and I love you for it.

What I'd like to request from you readers who stop by is what do you think? Please be completely honest about your experiences here.

Is there something you'd like to see changed, added, diced, or enbalmed?

Has the daily updating been worth the effort?

Post a comment if you will so as to share with others who visit your thoughts. Your comments will be forming the basis on where I go from here in terms of publishing content on the internet whether at this site or another I have started to work on.

Thank you,
The guy who writes this dribble.

First song I heard today

Just a great song. 1st person to respond with the artist wins a no prize.

You say yes, I say no.
You say stop and I say go go go, oh no.
You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello.
I say high, you say low.
You say why and I say I don't know, oh no.
You say goodbye and I say hello(Hello Goodbye Hello Goodbye) hello hello(Hello Goodbye)
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello(Hello Goodbye Hello Goodbye) hello hello(Hello Goodbye)
I don't know why you say goodbye(Hello Goodbye) I say goodbye.

Why why why why why why do you say goodbye goodbye, oh no?

Puppet Advice

This will be a feature someday but for now I present some junky from Sesame Street. His identity has been protected.

So I went to the Zoo today and...

I saw a Galapagos Tortoise trying to hump another one. Problem is he was trying to hump the wrong end!

Did I mention my digicam takes movies?

Oh yes faithful readers turn up the volume and download TURTLE HUMPING!

It's the first porno I've ever shot.

Hooray for Maxim

The greatest magazine ever has hit a home run. Fellow Philadelphian, former Playboy Playmate and current hot piece of ass on General Hospital Kelly Monaco is featured in this coming September's issue.

Send all the hate email you want for posting her pics I don't care. I'm in love.

Thursday, August 18, 2005


Well sure I spent nearly $90 but I'll be protected in what is widely considered the best paintball mask on the market today, VForce's Profiler. Now I will actually have periferal vision on the playing field. And best of all I got the green one.

New Feature: The Rubberband Ball

I'm adding a new feature sorta. You will now be witness to the development of a rubberband ball I started today. Exciting isn't it!?! Yeah well it's not like you come here for free tacos.

Are you interested in seeing this thing grow? Probably not. But you gotta admit you will keep track of it somewhere in your psyche each time you come here from now on. Could this be a study done by me for a class I'm taking? Sure could but I would tell you that upfront.

Frawg Slurpees

Have you been to 7 Eleven lately? They have this new flavor called Frawg. It's green and is flavored like green apple. I'm addicted to this shit. I can feel it's powerful sugar derived biological rocket fuel for the mind taking over me as I type this. I can't stop, holy fuck is this shit good. My tongue is green. I can't go into a meeting with a green tongue.,w.,e'g,[wahk =ika]erkoa ookf ao kz
Hands out of control, moving faster than brain, need more Slurpee to stabilize.

399 for the 360

Pay up suckas.

MS is invading your home at the $399 price point for their next generation console, the Xbox 360.

Damn good thing I've been saving the change since coming back from Vegas last August. As of June of this year the total change amount was a little over $500. I'm pretty well set for the launch cash flow wise.

But what about the people who can't? $299 is alot of money in and of itself. That's a tough price to be able to afford along with 2-3 games at launch. Now those people are getting the hose in the rear since no HDD comes with the system plus you get a wired controller as well. A big disappointment for anyone looking to finally escape wires.

Their going to make money on this thing. But I'd better get standard connection wires in the box for the times I take the thing on the road.

EDIT: That box is fucking ugly. Where's my fucking standard connections.? Wheres my rechargeable batteries? An extra $20 for a recharge pack? Fuck that!

Wait oh wait $100 fucking dollars for the right to hook my console up wirelessly? Get the fuck out of here Allard.

Check out Major Nelsons boards for some great reading. It reminds me of the wrestling fans of ROH. Whenever someone fucks up in the ring they start to chant in unison "You fucked up, you fucked up!" Same thing here only in print.

Don't Get Caught!

Since I won't be around this coming Monday or Tuesday here's something to amuse you while I'm gone.Again this is something we've all experienced in real life and can now play as a game.

The Game

City of Heroes

Keg O'War standing guard on the Liberty server. Join him as he quests for truth, justice, big boobs, and beer.

I just got back into this game following NCSofts reminder in the form of a $15 charge on my credit card. It's definitely a level grind at heart just as Brandon told me months ago but I got the game just so I could make up some of the wackiest heroes I can think of. So in the coming weeks you'll see a couple of them pop in here to say hello. Who knows maybe I'll even start a comic with them.

nip/tuck Reminder

As if you needed one. Here's a quick pic of Kelly Carlson from this month's Stuff magazine. For those of you who follow the show her character had a rough time of it last season while discovering the lovely world of porn. She's a wonderful character on the show and I only hope they feature her more in season 3.

Season 3 by the way starts up I believe on Sept 20th this year. My gf was the person who actually got me started on the show and I love her for it. Troy and McNamara are 2 guys who I can totally relate to at different times. Is that scary? Hell yes but when you think about it each character on the show reflects a part of yourself in some way.

Enjoy the pic, start watching the show if you haven't already, and for the love of gourds google her name already.

My last PS2 game will be...

"Shadow of the Colossus" I've been watching this game for awhile now and I'm officially going to be putting money down on it. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I even purchased a PS2 game let alone actually put money down. I must be smoking crack.

I really enjoyed ICO and this game is developed by the same nuts so that was a selling point. Throw in giants, swords, horses and imagery that makes my eyes bug out with anticipation and this game looks to be a sheer winner. Too bad this house doesn't develop across platforms because I'd love to try this game on the G-Cube or Xbox. The PS2 just doesn't do it justice but so far so good.

Anyone else going to join me in this one? It's at least worth a visit to Blockbuster to pick up. Remember no late fees.

Thursday, August 11, 2005

I've been checking out that website for quite sometime now and I'm impressed. First I'm surprised to see Ziff Davis pull something off so well. Second it's free, cross console, and well laid out.

I've been a part in websites that had similar setups before,, SpecOps for paintball, etc... but no site offers the "flow" that 1UP does.

Dig my profile and sign up yourselves.

It's Operation on Steroids

Many of you know my love of the DS. Those of you who don't well I love it. With games like Meteos and Wario Ware Inc. showing of the systems touch screen and the backwards compatibility with GBA games the system is my choice for gaming on the go.

Recently I noticed that besides the XB 360 the only games I'm really looking forward to for the rest of the year are on the DS. Nintendogs, Advance Wars DS, even Metriod all look like their going to kick ass on the handheld. But the one game I'm looking forward to more than anything else is Trauma Center.

This game is looking to be my fixation this winter. In it you play the role of a Doctor fresh out of med school. I guess you perform your residency at Caduceus Hospital performing whatever treatment needs to be done. This includes everything from injections to full on surgery. You manipulate all the instruments with the touchscreen making this game one of the intiguing games of the year.

Will it be for the squeamish? Hell no. I fully expect this game to turn off a bunch of people quickly. But for those med nuts out there like me and for anyone with a pulse for quirky titles will adore this title.
According to this thing ships on October 11th, get ready to scrub in.

You wake up to find 2 spicy little mama's read to go medieval on your ass with a toilet brush. Yeah we've all been there before.

Quiz time hot shots,

#1 What apartment number did the Three's Company crowd live in?

#2 What were the Ropers first names?

#3 When the series ended Ritter went on to star in a short lived spin off. Name it and name the actress that starred along him in it.

Just Damn Good Gaming

In anticipation of the Advance Wars debut onto the Nintendo DS (go buy one now) I present a quick pic of all the land units available to you in Advance Wars 2 on the GBA.

Seriously folks there is no better war game available today. The Advance Wars series has completely entertained me now for close to 2 years without any signs of stopping. I am to the point that I will make up a custom map with which to practice different tactics on. That's just sick. Between AW 1&2 and Final Fantasy Tactics my GBA became my #1 gaming system over the last 2 years. Yes I play it more than my XBox. that's how good these games are. If you grew up enjoying Chess, Risk, Chinese Checkers, Axis & Allies, hell any war game then you are going to love this game. Even better get 3 friends who love this game and you are easily looking at a game that will take you all days to finish. It truly becomes a war in multiplayer as each person skillfully trys to outmanuever the others for complete supremacy of the map.

Chime in if you've played it. Everyone I've talked to about it has a fondness for Advance Wars like no other game.

Investing Tips

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.
But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of Beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have had $214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
It's called the 401-Keg Plan.

Picture of the day:

Remember those things?

The Quintessential Pale Ale

I love Stoudt's Pale Ale. It is without a doubt the only beer I will buy by the case repeatedly. Not only is the beer's label by far the best one to ever grace a brown bottle but the beer inside is perfect for almost any summertime event. If you get the chance and you see it in a cooler near you do yourself a favor and enjoy one. Hell if you don't have it near you contact me and I'll send you "collectible glassware bottle" in the mail because no shiping company will ship a "beer" over state lines. wink wink

In other news the podcast is coming to Fuggo. Yes your least favorite author of this here waste of free time is going to be offering an audio version within the next couple of months. I already have a bunch of guests lined up as well from all walks of life and they've all agreed to let me ask them whatever I want. This feature came about following discussions I'm currently involved in with a website looking to bring me onto their staff. It's an appealing offer and I think I can pull off a weekly podcast for the masses to download without a problem. So stay tuned for that one.

Guess the Game

Guess this game win nothing but my adoration for a job well done.
EDIT: Due to a couple of emails and responses here I'll drop a couple of hints.
The game is available on the PC
It's published by MS Studio's , developed by Relic
And plain and smply just never got the hype machine behind it that it should have as it's the best fucking RTS to ever grace the genre.

See this game reminds me to look at something and try and comprehend what's being said before I pass judgement. The game calls for customization of your troops so while you may see a zebra up front there could be a shark fin on the thing's ass allowing it to move through the water rather easily. This game goes great with Hummus.

Quick Lunch Linkarama!

While scanning one of the best forums on the internet based on a game I have never played (but really want to) I present some links for you to click on.

Thanks users!

Damn Snow!

I have no clue...

Feel free to reply with a screwy link to share with the other readers. All 7 of them.

What does fuggo mean?

Well apparently it means "to flee" or "I escape" in Italian. If you know me then you know I haven't a clue about how to speak Italian. While I'm half decent in a couple of foreign languages Italian was not one I grew up with around me. Spanish? check. French? Grew up with that one too. Mandarin Chinese? Hell yeah. See I grew up with a group of buddys that when we all hung out could have made for a UN summit. We had a person of almost every different ethnicity represented. Through them I picked up a number of foreign languages. Those were good times.

I came up with the term "Fuggo" a long time ago while playing hockey one night. We were playing a team and I got a 2 minute penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct for telling a guy on the other team "Next time you go near the boards I'm going to fucking smash you." Well the ref didn't think that was nice, especially coming from a 14 year old kid. So I then came up with "Fug" as way to skirt the whole "Fuck" issue while playing. Fuggo came about via hockey because I started saying "That guy just got Fuggo'd!" when there would be a big hit on the ice.

So there you have it. The origin of the name "Fuggo" for this here site. I want to thank the reader who contacted me via IM for asking about it. I have no idea who you are but cheers nonetheless.
