Dave!The coolest thing about having a blog is the lovely death threats you get just for stating your opinion.

Well, in this case, it's not actually a "threat" per se... it's more like harsh tongue lashing without the benefits such an activity might normally involve.

And I owe it all to Tony Danza.

Not Tony Danza personally, but a Tony Danza fanatic who decided to write to me after reading my comments on his talk show. I would never have guessed that Tony was capable of having such a rabid fan base, so naturally I have come to the conclusion that Tony Danza has some kind of demonic mind-control powers. And now his evil minions are hunting down anybody who would dare speak out against their diabolical overlord.

So now I wonder... mild-mannered talk show host, or hellspawn sent to destroy us all?


Apparently the wrath I've incurred is due to The Tony Danza Show being pulled from some key markets like New York and Philadelphia. According to the email I got, horrible people like me "have poisoned people against Tony and created a negative energy to destroy a wonderful show that brings happiness to millions of people". She drives her point home by closing her email with "God bless Tony Danza and I hope you die!".

= Sob! =

Did you see that? She wants me dead! Between this wack-job and Pat Robertson, I don't think any of us are safe. If no new Blogography entries are forthcoming and I should mysteriously disappear... now you'll know why. Tony Danza finally got me.

What a way to go.

    Maybe the question, “Who’s the Boss?” is rhetorical…with the obvious answer being: Tony Danza.

  2. Rockchild says:

    One person a long time ago hoped I die to, after he read my post about me giving this girl name Debby, some of my grandma’s famous chocolate chip whisker cookies. How should I know she wasn’t gona like them?

    This person who hates me is a Jehovah Witness, which I thought Debby was, but I now think she coulda been a Hairy Chrishna.

    Anyways, I want to Congratulate you on being a finalist at the Best of Blog Awards, Dave! You have a great blog here!

    Good luck!

    Sandra, that was terrible. Funny, but terrible.

    Dave, never doubt the hordes of little Danzaites. They will hunt you down and murder you in your sleep. And that’s not even the worst part… you will be condemned to an eternity working as producer of all the failed daytime talk shows… ever.

  4. Wow. Did you notice the demonized version of Tony Danza looks a lot like Peter Gallagher?


  5. kathleen says:

    i wonder if tony danza chews with his mouth open…

  6. Pauly D says:

    That Devil-Danza scares me, and I’ve met the guy more than once in my lifetime. He’s a nice guy, Dave! He really is.

    He punched me in the stomach once, but it was a total miscommunication.

  7. Dave2 says:

    I don’t know which Danza scares me the most… both Devil-Danza and Talk-Show-Host-Danza are equally frightening in their own way.

    Punching you in the stomach aside, I’m sure he is a nice guy…

    … at least until he embraces his inner demonic self and decides to rip your head off so he can consume the tasty brains within.

  8. Rockchild says:

    You’re scaring me, Dave!

  9. Hi,

    I’m new – I found you on the BoB page. I love your site and I’m glad I found it. You’ve got my vote! I didn’t want to just lurk; I wanted to let you know of the support.


  10. amamgets says:

    Ouchie Mama… death? Truly? She wants you to DIE? What a bitch.

    Hmmm… maybe we should send her some great vibes– there’s gotta be a bunch still hangin’ around after Tony’s last show…

  11. Michelle says:

    “Hold me closer Tony Danza….” hahahaha. Elton John stylee.

  12. Belinda says:

    That is the best closing line to an email EVER. I’m going to put it in my sig line. God bless Tony Danza and I HOPE YOU DIE. Holy Moly.

    And Pauly D. was probably chewing with his mouth open when Tony D. punched him.

  13. Naomi says:

    A good closing line, indeed–but I’m still enamored with: “Enormous balls”.

    (Did I just say I was enamored with enormous balls? Tee-hee-hee.)

  14. Jack says:

    Is there something about being called Dave that inspires a dislike of Tony Danza? I ask because of this

    Though if he is a demon it would make for an interesting episode of Charmed.

  15. Janet says:

    Gotta love that Elton John song, “Hold Me Tighter, Tony Danza”

    Congrats on your nom!
