Every now and then, the show staff will do something on Twitter that will remind us all that they can be pretty cool people. Tara will post something sexy, Sibsy will do something to embarrass Mandopony, John DeLancie will have a meltdown and not return for a year and a half, each are enjoyable in their own way. But in Season 4, we were exposed to a new twitter juggernaut, who daily makes us question just how #based one man can be. And that man is named Josh Haber.
How based is he?
Glad you asked.
What qualifies this man as being deserving of the honorific title of "Based"?
Well, to answer that, you must first understand what "based" means.
The handy-dandy Urban Dictionary describes it as "#Based is all about being yourself and not caring what anybody else thinks." and "Is when you don't care what people think, it's a way of life. Doing what you want. how u want".
Simply put, #based means that the person in question doesn't give a fuck what you think, and is just being themselves.
This morning, Haber reminded us all just how little he cares for political correctness, especially on twitter, as he tweeted a Jew joke in response to "@midnight". This is hardly the first time he's exercised his first amendment rights in the most hilarious of fashions. When he was first announced as a writer for the show, /mlp/ went digging to learn all they could about him, uncovering a selection of posts that made many think "he's one of us".
Everyone's thinking it, he's just saying it.
This of course prompted further digging.
We literally could not pick just a few of these gems. So we decided to include them all.
The Favstar Bot really drives it home.
He's a drunkard too? Goddammit we think we're in love.
Are your eyes sparkling yet?
He even was in touch with the community artists BEFORE we knew all who he was.
And he was dropping major spoilers during the year prior to the Season 4 premier.
The man has been described by those who've met him and by heads of conventions of have "Big brass swinging balls" and dammit we can believe it.
To #based Haber, wherever you are, you can come call us "cocksuckers" any time.
