Shy Blogger Says, "This Is Very Hard For Me To Do"

So a guy named Mr left the following comment in this post:

"ok, this is a good blog and all, but why do people LOVE you... I don't get it yet. Maybe I need to keep reading... "

I know. I couldn't believe it as I read it either. As regular readers of my blog know, I'm a bit shy and reserved. I don't like to blow my own horn as they say. I'm actually (head looking down at feet that are kind of kicking an imaginary pebble) - I'm a bit embarrassed how to answer him. I.....I think that it's best to let my readers answer:


And please. Don't make a mockery out of this very important inquiry. I'll now just let myself into this sound proof booth so I can't hear anything. OK. I'm almost in. Shutting the door now.

(Door closes)

(Door reopens)

I'm very sorry, I'm just going to grab these Tastykakes here..and..and this Highlights Magazine so I'll have something to do while I wait.. You know, see what Goofus and Gallant are up to..OK. I'm ..uh...going back in now.

(Door closes)

Well Mr. you see.... Dr Zibbs is the most caring, loveable, honest, funny, creative (did I miss any adjectives?) man you will ever want to meet or read. His wit is fast, fun and refreshing. THAT MY FRIEND IS WHY WE LOVE THE ZIBBS!

and he hands out shitty prizes too :)

Yours truly
- Jennifer

Dear Mr.

Dr.Zibbs is a favorite with the ladies. We love him so. West Chester would be nothing without him.


the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

Well, I was going to say something about leaving TastyKakes for us to enjoy, but since you took them all, eff off.

We love you because women take their shirts off, write your name on their breasts, photo it, and then send you the photos.

Falwless said...

Because his damn blog is genius. The Dr Zibbs character is a damn dummyhead. He's ridiculous and bizarre and silly and full of himself but pretends like he's not. See: this post.

The overriding tone of his blog is spot-on, and that's a hard thing to keep on point.


Renaissance Woman said...

It is your shy and reserved traits that make me love you! Why else?

LYDIA said...

Let me think about it, I don't want to get it wrong. BRB

Red said...

Love is a strong word, but anyone who makes people laugh more than they make people cry is beloved by all, or something. I dunno. I'm just making shit up here.

B.E. Earl said...

"Listen, Zibbs. Whatever you wanna do in the privacy of your own home, go do it. But don't try to fuck me in my father's office - I don't think of you that way. I like you a lot man, but I don't think of you that way."

david wells said...

I will admit, when I first read this blog, I was like "WTF, I don;t get it. All I see are youtube videos. yet everyone loves this dick*!"

but then I took the time to read more posts and found myself laughing my ass off, with a tear filled sob thrown in on the fancy posts.

I decided to give it another chance after first seeing this blog, and glad that i did.

* No offense, I didn;t mean it in a personal way. I was just mad you had more traffic than I did.

LYDIA said...


Or should I address this to Mr.? Reasons I am "in like" with the good doctor:

-He is one of my BFF's

-He reads my blog. He reads everyone's blog. And comments! Usually funny comments. Who doesn't love a witty man?

-He may be a swinger.

-He may be mad that I think he might be a swinger.

-He is mysterious. You have to wonder, what is Zibbs REALLY like?

-He cooks, and sometimes if we are good kids, he shares his recipes.

-If you are deserving of it, he will bring traffic to your blog.

So... I will leave the rest of this list to some of your other ladies.

Shieldmaiden96 said...

Yes. Two reasons:

One, you are sort of spastic and you make me laugh.

Two, I used to live where you live. Once in a while I miss it. A dose of the Doctor cures my nostalgia.(I miss the restaurants. God help me I miss the restaurants. Your posts about the restaurant festival are like food porn.)

katrocket said...

I actually can't stand Zibbs. I only come here to leech his traffic.

sista #2 said...


Zibbs is a cool dude. He cracks me the fact he wears his undies in the hottub...... What isn't there to love?

When you need him, he sends his "people" out to help.


Dr Zibbs said...

Katrocket - I've suspected that. That's why the shitty prize you were sent was air. I sent it in an invisible envelope. Did it arrive yet?

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Dear Mr,
Zibbs rocks HARD and here's why:
#1. He is by far the "master" of the post, the comment, and whatever else he decides to do between the pages of That Blue Yak.

#2. Even if it's not really that funny, it's fricken side splitting after Zibbs has put his zany spin on it.

#3. He is mysterious. His blog is anonymous and chicks dig that. I picture Zibbs as a Hef like kind of character and us ladies are his "girls next door". Only I picture Zibbs wearing a bow tie and suit jacket instead of an ascot and a bathrobe. And instead of a mansion, I see Zibbs in a split level with a two car garage in suburban West Chester.

#4. He is loyal. Zibbs can be counted on to show up daily and make you giggle on both your own blog and his.

#5. Zibsy is the self-proclaimed King of self promotion. We love him because he tells us to and teaches us how to step by step. Sometimes his blog reads like "Zibbs for Dummies"

Need I go any further?

What is the use of living, if it be not to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone?

H said...

Oh and he has a picture of my hand wearing finger condoms on his blog now. Damn I always forget to mention that part!

Giggle Pixie said...

I love him because he makes me LAUGH, long and hard, which just so happens to be how I like it. *wink*

buffalodick said...

A Buffalo and a Blue Yak cannot mate- I am OK with that... believe me!

LYDIA said...

I picture Zibbs wearing a suit jacket, sporty microfiber boxer briefs and argyle socks that pick up flecks of color in his suit jacket.

miss milly said...

What is not to love about the Dr?! Witty, Comical, Loyal, Wonderful, and he loves boobies.

and of course he is in my band.

Oh and he found the missing Wallaby from Ontario.

WHich equals superhero.

nuff said.

miss milly said...

I just laughed my ass off at Zibb's invisible air package comment. facking hilarious.

LYDIA said...

Did anyone who won a prize in the last contest receive it yet?

LegalMist said...

I agree with lydia and candy's daily dandy: Dr. Zibbs is awesome because he could write about a cracker box and make me laugh. Plus he shows up daily and comments on my blog, usually with a kind word or some humor.


* the comments here are thigh-slapping funny most days, with falwless, candy's daily, whiskeymarie, fancy schmancy, and others too numerous to mention wisecracking and feeding off each other's hilarity.

* the blogroll is filled with worthwhile reads -- I've found lots of great new blogs to waste time with, simply by clicking on Dr. Zibbs' list.

* I have to give Whiskeymarie credit, though. I wouldn't have found Zibbs but for her awesome blog.

* How can anyone resist that endearing portrait of Nana Zibbs?!?

So, "Mr.", stay awhile and keep reading. Eventually you'll be sucked into the cult, just like the rest of us.

MelO said...

I just came in here to see how everyone answered :)

jk... If a person has a picture of finger condoms BEING WORN telling one (or two?) to google the name of their blog on said blog... it's just basically kickass...

(duh.) :)

<3 ya Zibbs!! XOXO

words words words said...

Frankly, I can't think about Zibbs right now because my mind is consumed by the thought that I'd step over my own mother for a pack of peanut butter Kandy Kakes. Ah, the things you miss about home.

Okay, that said, if Dr. Zibbs likes your blog, he will pimp it to his audience of salivating dogs. That's a standup guy.

J.J. in L.A. said...

As a new reader, I loves me some Zibbs because he's a Rocky Horror fan, he's sarcastic/witty...and he's blue (my fav color).

Dr Zibbs said...

Words Words Words - you are correct. I do love to help others out with pimping their blogs. I believe it was Matthew page 27 of the bible that said something along the lines of "Help Ye and Ye will get some help too"..Something like that.

As for the Tastykakes, I will treat myself to some Peanut Butter KandyKakes in your honor when I'm at Wawa tommorrow. And by the way dude they do ship Tastykakes around the country now.

Cora said...

Dr Zibbs, I'm in love (LOVE!) with you because you have the balls to say what I'm too chicken to say on my own blog. It's as simple as that. I have family members reading my blog, thus I must filter. Dammit. For example: I have a truly perverted lava lamp (just trust me on this) which I can't turn on whenever anyone is over because when the lamp is turned on, it's, ummm, REALLY turned on. It's funny as all hell, and it would make a kick-ass blog post, but since the fam checks in on the blog, I'm too chicken to actually post it. (I shoulda done this blog thing anonymously, obviously!!). So, I have to live vicariously through you.

And, damn, you're funny. Anyone who can't see that needs help.

mike said...

I like you because I think you look like this guy I know from West Chester who is pretty funny. I actually have no idea what you look like, but I always read your blog and pretend my buddy is the one narrating. I'm not even making a joke here. If I ever saw you and found out that you don't look like this guy, I will be devastated.

Michelle J said...

I love ya Dr Z!

You gave me an invisible birthday card!!! I won't ever forget that man!!!

***Wiping away the tear*****

Gwen said...

Because he's a friend. He's also a big ball of ridiculous silliness surrounding a huge heart, and how can you not love that?

Dr Zibbs said...

Gwen. If I was a good artist I'd draw a picture of how you just described me. Then, I would photoshop in a picture of you and the big huge heart ball would be dry humping you. In a thank you type of way.

Falwless said...

I just know you're printing all these out, Zibbs, and shucking your corncob to them tonight.

...and every night from here on out...

I know you.

Anonymous said...

Because despite his celebrity status, he never forgets his roots.

He's not above grabbing a beer at a local Iron Hill, even if there is the high probability that he will get mobbed. Sheer bravery, right there.

Cole Hamels has nothing on Zibbs in their hometown of Dub-C.

And he's never too busy to take time out of his busy autograph-signing schedule to make an appearance on my comments list. It's just admirable.

Bizarro Zibbs said...

Yes, Zibbs, yes...soak it all in...let that head get bigger and bigger...and your Tastykakes..grow that head until POP!...and you are no more. Caesar had his Brutus, Arnold his Gooch, Gary Coleman his Emmanuelle Lewis...

Your demise is near. Which god will save you then? Baal? Thor? The Baby Jesus (my personal favorite of all the Jesi)?

Dr Zibbs said...

Falwless - if shucking you corncob means continuing my charity work with bums then yes, I will be shucking my corncob.
Kimmie - you me dear are very, very wise.

BeckEye said...

I love him because he makes no damn sense.

greeneyesmcl said...

Prepare for the explosion as Zibbs' head gets bigger, and bigger, and bigger as he read these posts. I love him because my mom said he couldn't be returned, and he has some really cute friends.

Lisa said...

I would have to say that you don't even PRETEND to be pc. Many of us worry that in an attempt to be funny, we may cross the line and offend.

Personally, I'm using it as inspiration. Tomorrow, I take on old people. Wish me well.

Mr said...

OK, I'm getting the gist of it.

1. hand out prizes
2. read blogs and leaves good comments
3. mysterious attraction
4. fake humbleness
5. funny without being pc

touche Zibb, touche...

One more question, sorry, is there like a best of "Dr. Zibb" or something to that effect on this humble blog of yours, or are you too humble for that? Even I have a best of slopmaster for godsakes!

ÄsK AliCë said...

I heart the Doctor because he prescribed me some medicine when I had a rash. Or maybe I contracted the rash after this particular "treatment"?

I don't really remember the details

~E said...

I can't lie. It's your rock hard abs and perfectly round buttocks!

Vodka Mom said...

Yeah, okay. I love you. Cause you're short and to the point. (and I don't mean stature, mister....)

You're just easy (and a hell of a lot of fun) to read. There, I said it.

Some Guy said...

I love Dr. Zibbs because he's handsome and good-looking and he wants to pin me down and fart on me and he always links to my blog and he's very modest and laughs when he watches me eating ribs. Mostly I love him because he gives me twenty bucks each time I leave a comment on his blog. Cha-CHING!

J. Hi said...

I love Dr. Zibbs because he makes me want to stand on a mountain, throw my arms out and sing.

Dr Zibbs said...

Mr - I will post some bests of soon.

Poobomber said...

I love the good Doctor because if I tell him so, maybe he'll give me a good deal on an appendectomy.

sista #2 said...

Did he say WaWa???????

The things I would do right now for some chocolate juniors and a 16oz WaWa coffee.....maybe even an expired hotdog.

I need to snap outta it.


Miss Alex said...

I love him cause he's one of the few I can count on one hand that actually like and post comments on my pathetic blog....thank you for making me worhty zibbs.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Dear Mr.

At first I only loved Zibbs because he told me I had to. But then he grew on me, like a fungus. When I started commenting on his blog, he came and started commenting on mine. And hasn't stopped. And when he loves you, he lets everyone else know it. He's kind, sweet, funny, generous, and mysterious. And sometimes his comments on other's people's blogs are funnier than his blog. But his blog is pretty friggin' funny!

enc said...

I'm not going to go over the various and sundry PAST reasons for my hero-worship of you. I'm going to cite a new reason today:

You posted a picture of TastyKakes. That's good enough for me.

Caffeine Court said...

Dear Mr.

Zibbs has an awesome blog personality. He's always the life of any virtual party and he has really cool blog friends.

The added bonus is he's from West Chester and in case you didn't know, people from WC rock.

I'm not even pissed at him for not having me on his blogroll.

Catherinette Singleton said...

I love you because you make my girl bits tingle and you make me feel like a natural woman.
