Amid old and busted streets . . . At least one profession in this cowtown earned a bump this week.

I beat your ass good in chess you loser.

GD the freak Wilson is over on KCC trash talking about all of us trying to act like he is some sort of saint when it comes to proper internet behavior. Well he should be ran out of KC, he is a loser and as well talks bad about people around him. I think maybe I should go public with what I have on him and lets see him get out of that. He be packing his bags and headed back to southern Missouri.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Lince, you asshole. We played one game & one game only. Our ratings at this casual site were the same. Calling me a loser doesn't make you a winner. Jesus, is that going to be your claim to fame on this blog, that you once beat me in a casual game at G/15. How many real tournaments have you won? What's your USCF rating? And how fucking old are you, 15?

LinceHispano said...

No wonder you lose you can't count for shit

pacificsun said...

And Byron I myself have beat you 3 times till you wouldn't play me anymore, you do that when you get beat to much.

Byron Funkhouser said...

So, like many others, you've chosen an identity that's a function of mine. Whatever. Jesus, bitch, it was just a meaningless casual game (I don't pay much attention to whom I'm playing. You're just one of many.) You didn't answer my questions.

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your real (USCF) rating.

Fuck it, you can die, now. Your life is complete. You beat me at a meaningless casual game of chess. Grow up!

LinceHispano said...

And I might add I have a higher rating than you do so stop being a liar in front of these people

Byron Funkhouser said...

Liar, I've never aborted a game with anyone. I doubt that I played you three times. Be sure, I won't play you again. Because I have no intention of playing little boy assholes.

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your USCF rating?

Byron Funkhouser said...

What's you real (USCF) rating?
My FICS rating is 1818. I play nearly every day, & I usually win.

Byron Funkhouser said...

LinceWhatever
PacificSun

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your USCF rating?
How old are you?

Fucking pussies.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Come on children.
Answer my fucking questions.

Byron Funkhouser said...

I'll be contacting FICS to see if I can have you assholes barred.

Anonymous said...

Go to a chess board bitches. This blog is about KC.

Also, Crosby was a good man. Let him Rest In Peace.

Carl, Mission Hills said...

Poor Byron is sitting here lying out his ass and getting busted right and left. It's ok Byron we all know what a phony you are and I am sure these people have done just what they say they have. Funny how nobody said you aborted a game, must mean you have a guilt complex about doing so. I like how Mark kids get their works published and do good things with their lives. Every family has to have a black sheep it seems and well guess you are the one in the Funkhouser family so deal with it. Your a nobody and we all know it.

Teri said...

Well Byron guess what I will contact FICS and demand you get barred I just checked and from what I see these two people are saying is true and what your saying isn't. So what do you think of that, so lets see who gets who barred here?

Byron Funkhouser said...

Fuck you, Carl! You have no idea what you're talking about. Andrew's a fucking poet. Isn't that just wonderful.

That's the only way you can avoid playing someone. What the fuck do you know about it, asshole?

Blah, blah, blah you're wonderful & I'm not. Blah, blah blah.

Unlike these buttbuddies. I play real chess in real chess tournaments where it counts.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Teri, you're a liar.

Byron Funkhouser said...

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your USCF rating?

LinceHispano said...

I'm 1887 @ Fics

Byron Funkhouser said...

I haven't said anything that was a lie. Why would I remember how many games I played with these two out of the many games I have played. I don't pay attention to my opponents name. I remember playing each of them at least once.

I appreciate that you absolutely need to believe that you're better than me, but that doesn't make it so.

Byron Funkhouser said...

ow many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your USCF rating?

Byron Funkhouser said...

Its Friday night in the big city. Are you boys afraid to go out after dark? At least I can say I live in a small town that's closed at night. What's your excuse?

Byron Funkhouser said...

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?
What's your USCF rating?

I take it that you haven't won any.
Have you even played in a chess tournament?

Byron Funkhouser said...

Anon 1:16

I made a comment that was relevant to the post. Then, the little boys started calling me names. I defended myself against their lies.

This is supposed to be a free speech zone, but every time I make a comment I get hated on.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Little boys, I'm still waiting ...

How many tournaments have you won?
How many state titles have you won?

I take it that you haven't won any.
Have you even played in a chess tournament?

Crickets ...

That's what I thougt. No wonder you're so juiced over a meaningless, casual game.

C'mon Funk, Move Your Ass


Can't wait for that book to come out

Byron Funkhouser said...

Yeah, 1:37

Naturally, I'm curious. I read Tony's story about the mayor's son & it was pretty good. Can't wait.

Anonymous said...

Byron I see only one hater here and it is you, give it a rest you have been busted so can it.

Byron Funkhouser said...

I haven't been busted, asshole. Lince called me a loser to start this shit. That makes him a hater, don't you think?

Anonymous said...

@1:37 I am sure Gloria won't let us down. That book is going to be a riot.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Fucking anonymous pussies ...

I give hate back to haters & I'm a hater. The racists call me a racist because I don't hate blacks. The homophobes call me a fag, because I'm not a homophobe.

I'm still waiting to know the many accomplishments of these 'chess players'.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Anon 1:49 & 1:37

Did you read Gloria's diary? There's so much source material, I'm excited to see how Tony handles it.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Actually, I should probably thank you little boys for pissing me off.

The adrenal rush is awesome. Not as good as steroids, but not bad.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Oh, yeah, Tony you forgot about Gutless Baker ...

& to say that that's Jackson County & not KC is pretty silly.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Thanks for reminding me why I quit playing chess. I was on FICS earlier & someone started insulting me, trying to throw me off my game. I'll stop playing casual chess, too. I won't try to have you barred from FICS, I'll just stop playing there myself.

Its funny how Americans love to call each other loser. I mean, this is America, the most backward, uncivilized, barbaric country in the developed world. Compared to the Europe, we're all fucking losers.

I Got Soul But I'm Not A Solider said...

Don't be a quitter. Eat your veggies and say your prayers. It's nearly judgement day. There will only be one winner. The ultimate power player. Everyone else must bow down.

Anonymous said...

Make up your mind Byron. You said yesterdayish you quit playing , now you play everyday, now you quit playing again!
I could care less if you would just get a job!!! THIEF!!!!
Classic meltdown!!

Byron Funkhouser said...

I was referring to tournament chess (real chess). I make a distinction between tournament chess & casual chess. But, you really don't want to know. You just take every opportunity to tell us how stupid you are.

Its a good thing you said, 'thief', or I wouldn't know who you are. What's it like having an identity that's a function of mine?

You're probably a REAL thief. That's why you obsess about this. There are a million or so disabled people in this country. You need to find there names & addresses so you can write them all & tell them that, in your ignorant, backward opinion, they are thieves.

Meltdown? Being called names pissed me off. Isn't that the point of being a troll. You pussies get off on, deliberately misconstruing anything anyone says to show your pathetic need to feel superior. Pissing people off s the whole point to your trolldom.

I Got Soul But I'm Not A Solider said...

Don't ever talk over me or you get a smack to the shoes and ass. Now you behave or this KCMO power player will deliver bosco unto you.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Yeah right.

Blah, blah, blah.

Go to the Eastside & tell them how bad you are. Sorry, anonymous pussy, I didn't catch your name.

I Got Soul But I'm Not A Solider said...

East side? What do you know about KCMO East side Byron. You're not from here. Not a power player at all.

Crosby Kemper still has more influence than you and he's dead.

Glo Squit said...

Hey, Byron drink some W.V. water then STFU & Take a nap ASSHOLE

ByronsKC said...

Byron......start your own blog. Then you can rant on yourself. Your shit is getting old here. I found you to be ignorant from day one, but now your just plain stupid. Hoping your basement floods with you locked in it !

Anonymous said...

Byron, you worthless piece of dung, go get a job and stop stealing from the government. Earn your own money to buy your weed and your internet access. You won't even be in the pathetic Funkhouser book, IF it ever gets published. You're probably not even a Funkhouser and if you are, they hate your guts. You're only purpose here is to be that pussy on the beach whose face we all kick sand into. Thanks for being our bitch.

Byron Funkhouser said...

People, its not the Funkhouser Book, its the Squitiro Book.

The racists shit here is getting deep, why don't you guys start your own blog. White Supremacy on a Mexican's Blog. That's some pathetic shit.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Ms. 10:38

Your pathetic yourself, there, bitch.

This thread isn't about me ...

Anonymous said...

funky is losing his shit.

Anonymous said...

Well 3:21 one first must have shit to lose.
But then Byron a nobody who comes from a family who all went out and made something of themselves but him.
Mark Funkhouser’s boy does well and Byron says. "Andrew's a fucking poet. Isn't that just wonderful." Byron is so full of hate he has to be one miserable person to be around. I bet he has no friends, hence why he is in here a lot. But then if you think about it would you want to have him as a friend? I’d venture to say nope you wouldn’t. Really sad you have to attack people and family who lived half way across the country because nobody in your own area wants anything to do with you.

Glo Squit said...

Mark says that their dad thought Byron is a homosexual.

Anonymous said...

Byron should spend more time sucking cock so we can talk about that cocksucker Crosby Kemper.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Anon 4:29

My father attended my marriage to a pregnant woman. My father was bat shit crazy. Mark didn't attend my wedding because he's too narcissistic.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Here's a comment about me that's not the usual nonsense.

Anonymous jodi said...

people who think byron doesnt contribute to society b/c he doesn't love enriching the capitalists at the cost of his own long term safety and health need to seriously reconsider their perceptions of "value". i would argue that most of the time byrons contributions to challenging the racists on this site, and occasionally making insightful statements, itself qualifies as a valuable contribution to society. the fact that he at the older edge of the workforce and has health issues should immunize him from derision, but apparently not for some of the scum that frequents these boards.

Thanks again, Jodi. Someone gets it!

Anonymous said...

Do you know who knocked-up the woman you married ?

Anonymous said...

Tony I can promise you that women like the one you have in the tow truck pic, would never be with a guy that drives one. You should have a "tow truck drivers wife/girlfriend" contest with pic's, you could also win points by having a dentist at the rewards ceremony, well that is if their woman isnt working the corner that night. :) Just sayin... I bet there are a few KCFD Guys that pick up tow gigs on the side lol

Anonymous said...

Byron, so "someone" named Jodi! who you probably made up! gives you a little shout out and you think your racist! stupid opinions have worth??

It's great to see commenters calling you out on what you are... a white man who is filled with hatred and contempt for whites, who lives off the government handouts as do so many blacks, who refuses to work and would rather suck for free than be productive, who lies and uses falsehoods and invective rather than truth to argue the facts put before him, who thinks he is a LOT smarter than he is because he's won a few chess matches.

You are older, but you could work. You claim health issues and disability, but others have pointed out many disabled people who are productively employed. Yet for all of your foul-mouthed retorts, I've never seen you address that point.

You are not immune from derision, you invite it to be heaped on you. You are not making valuable contributions to society because you mooch and take from those who produce while giving nothing in return.

Byron Funkhouser said...

You've copied & pasted. I will not. Go to original post & read reply.

Anonymous said...

Tony I am so god damn tired of seeing Byron Funkhouser’s shit on these posts all the time. He is ruining your site. He is not from around here and adds nothing to this local blog. His insight is hateful as a rule and does not reflect the views of people in Kansas City.

Nothing but stupid trolling. People, ignore the troll..it will go away.
