Moepickles: A Legend is Born

So, last night I attended The Winekone's live show on BlogTV, and witnessed the creation of a new legend; The Legend of Moepickles. Unfortunately, the show doesn't seem to have been recorded, so I can't link you to it.

Basically, Tony(The Winekone) began addressing a visitor to the room, moepickles69. I don't know exactly what initiated it, whether Tony randomly picked Moepickles out of the group, or if Moepickles wrote a comment, which I didn't see, that Tony responded to. I think it may have been that Moepickles referred to Tony as a legend, or something equivalent, because Tony then began to talk about how Moepickles goes way back in YouTube history, basically describing her as a YouTube matriarch, and how Tony remembers watching Moepickles back when she was just getting started, etc. This was ironic humour, as Tony had never heard of Moepickles up to that point. 

Edit 8/5/2013: Tony was not joking. Shortly after I wrote this post, Moepickles filled me in on the story, and apparently Tony really had known her for years. I'm not sure why I didn't edit this afterward, but years later, Tony has informed me of my error:

-Tony Huynh

I apologize to everyone who has been deceived over the years by this blog post.

Edit 2: Um, did anybody notice that this entry was posted on 8/5/08 and this edit was made on 8/5/13? I swear to God, I didn't plan it that way. Weird. 

Edit 8/5/2018: The previous two edits were unintentionally written exactly five years to the day from the original blog post. This edit was intentionally written exactly five years to the day from the previous two edits, and ten years to the day from the original blog post. Happy Moe Pickles day, Tony!

... wherever you are.

-End of Edits-

I then took the opportunity to declare Moepickles to be a YouTube Legend. That's right, Moepickles is now legendary. I tried to find moepickles69 in a YouTube search, but I couldn't find one. I did, however, find a moepickles without the numerical suffix. So head on over to Moepickles channel and give her a legendary shoutout.

lol! This story keeps getting more random. I searched my internet username "moepickles" into Google and amongst the many sites I am a member of, I found this journal entry! Hahaha I can tell you the full story of me, the Wine Kone and YouTube, but I'll send it over YouTube mail to prove my identity!
