Happy 2nd anniversary of Dick Pic day.

The site’s cursor was changed to Leo Laporte’s dick pic in honor of today and because its small size lends itself well to being a mouse cursor. Now, only this paragraph has the dick cursor.

We are continually shocked and surprised at what TWiT shows on-air. We always think it can’t get worse, but it usually does. Next year on dick day, we’ll let you know if there are any updates in the saga.

Leo Laporte’s dick pic has long been great fun for us to cover. We know Leo is a joke, and as Frogpants podcasters Scott Johnson and Turpster proved before, he is a joke in his own industry.

Here is another example from Jupiter Broadcasting’s Unfiltered episode 192. The relevant content begins at 05:37 and is embedded below. Click here if the embed doesn’t work.

How long until another podcast comes out with another Leo Laporte dick pic reference?

Leo Laporte Regrets Thinking About Dick Pics

Perhaps more accurately, Leo Laporte’s editors and technical directors regret him mentioning dick pics.

During one of his regularly scheduled copyright infringement sessions, he made a crass joke relating to sending sexually explicit text messages to others using new features of iOS 10’s iMessage.

The editors poorly removed the mention by blurring his mouth and silencing the audio, but left in Megan Morrone’s juvenile laugh.

FrogPants Podcasters Joke About Leo Laporte’s Dick Pic

Update: Scott Johnson weighed in.

Hypothetical Help Frogpants Cover
A very funny podcast.

Scott Johnson and Mark Turpin have a podcast on the FrogPants network named Hypothetical Help in which they provide “help” in a humorous manner to those requesting it. It’s a much funnier Dear Abby for the digital age.

Thanks to a tip from a reader, we learned that in Episode 38 of Hypothetical Help, they made a joke regarding Leo Laporte’s dick pic.

Listen

Leo Laporte is a joke in the podcasting and technology circles. How funny is that? Every guest that comes on one of the TWiT shows has seen Leo’s dick pic and cunt pic. If you’re an invited guest, how hard is it to keep his dick pic off your mind?

If you’d like to listen to the full episode, the clip above starts at 16:17. They are responding to a question from “William” that begins at 09:25.

Lisa Laporte’s Vagina – Accidentally Displayed Live on TWiT

Update: Like the sizzle reel TWiT released when Leo exposed his dick pic, TWiT has released a new sizzle reel to distract again!

Are they worried about something? We feel sorry for Anthony Nielsen. Every time one of his bosses exposes genitals, he has to make a new sizzle reel.

Link to vid.me backup in case you have issues playing it.

Leo Laporte previously exposed a penis on The Tech Guy. Now he has exposed a vagina from a person named Lisa with a last name that begins with “Kent” on the flagship show This Week in Tech.

Leo states that the vagina in question is “something filthy” while Liberty Madison #ThatTechGirl — maybe it was Drake since they all look alike — must gaze upon it in terror. Philip Elmer-DeWitt can be heard saying “Oh jeez!”

We are hoping our commenters with more forensic experience can help us determine the rightful owner of the pictures below. Perhaps someone could ask the CEO of TWiT, Lisa Kentzell Laporte, if she could assist. We are sure she doesn’t want this kind of “filthy” content appearing on the TWiT TV Network.

Leo Laporte Insults Someone Else’s Penis Size

Leo Laporte previously displayed a dick pic on-screen on The Tech Guy. It nearly killed our servers from people viewing the tiny, gray-haired penis over and over.

You’d think that he’d stay away from penis size comparisons after that event, but you would be wrong, as the video above showed. Has #Soup no shame?

Guest SubmissionWe didn’t make this, but it was sent in to us using our feedback system, and we thought it deserved to be seen by everyone. Sometimes you need a bit of humor to counteract the depressing cesspool of sitting-around-a-table bullshit TWiT has become.

Leo Laporte’s #DickGate PR Campaign Succeeds

Penis seen round the world. Pixelated for your protection.
#Soup and Yoko’s expert use of PR against Total Drama appears to have succeeded. No real changes will be made at TWiT and he was able to convince advertisers that him showing a dick on air was A-OK.

You too can learn how to suppress truth and keep a sycophant fan base by following along. Enjoy!

Editors Note: Read the rest of our #DickGate coverage here.

Leo’s PR Campaign in 11 Easy Steps:
  1. Pretend TD threatened/insulted his children/family
  2. Pretend TD called in a bomb threat
  3. Claim he will cancel the chat and live stream (while insulting the chatters) and claim that this is one TD member’s fault
  4. Claim that everyone who dislikes what he and Yoko have made TWiT into are one person, which he can’t believe, but he needs his sycophant audience to believe
  5. Lie to the advertisers and tell them he didn’t show a dick and tell them to ignore the #OneAss troll

  6. Dox the #OneAss to get his chatters to go nuts on this person
  7. Attempt to get back in the chat’s good graces when he realizes he can’t do The Tech Guy without their answers, since he’s a moron
  8. Astroturf (suspected) the live chat with people like <eliz>
  9. Go on another rant in the chat room about the #OneAss
  10. Make everything go back to normal after everyone forgets about the dick pic
  11. Say no more on it (yeah right, but see chat below)

We’ve Been Here Before (Redux of the Forums Shutdown)

Editors Note: This was sent to us by chatter Vincent Ferrari (<vincenzof>) and is unedited by us. Echoes of the threats of a chat and live stream shutdown are obvious.

Forum Moderator Emails
Forum Moderator Emails

It was October(ish) of 2008 and the TWiT forums were the place where viewers could discuss the shows, of course, but mostly we just hung out there and chatted with each other. It was a strange little family of people with diverse interests and the discussions didn’t always center around TWiT. In fact, for the most part, they went all over the place and we liked it that way.

Originally, the forums were for paid subs only. Back in the old days, you could chip in $2 a month and for that sum you gained access to the forums. Eventually, they went full free, and I don’t remember where they were in October 2008. We were having a discussion about a statement Leo made on the forums about “working for free.” Many of us long-time listeners scoffed at the notion that anything he did for TWiT was “for free,” and noted based on many things, that he was not only not “working for free” but he was being paid quite well. Our objection wasn’t that he was making money, but that he continued to perpetuate this crazy idea that he wasn’t being paid for what he did.

The conversation got heated, and divisive with many people throwing names back and forth at each other, and it ended up with a bunch of people throwing up their hands in disgust and leaving the forums altogether. Some stayed, though, and this one thread just kept going on and on. The discussion eventually came down to people arguing that those of us who “don’t like it should just leave” and the ones who were balking at it saying “but we pay for it and this is the place to talk about it.” It got uglier and uglier, and Leo himself stepped in at one point, saying that he had had “enough shit” from the forum, and he isn’t working so hard so that people could make him miserable. He said he would no longer be looking at the forums, and then upgraded the people who disagreed with him the most and had been there the longest to moderator status.

Things settled down for a bit and me, along with a few of the old “regulars” moderated the forums until another tantrum over content, in which Laporte decided that he had enough of us discussing things and that the forums were a “cesspool” (sound familiar? *cough* Twitter *cough*) and needed to go. He then proceeded to ban everyone he made a mod entirely, and later would close the forums down. They would re-appear on another server for awhile, but eventually disappear. The most active and enthusiastic community behind TWiT was not only killed, but it was eviscerated and people were shamed for not just drinking down the Kool-Aid. Incidentally, I still have the emails that say I was upgraded, then banned, lest you think I’m playing games.

Why am I telling you this? Because it shows a pattern. To an extent, Leo is right. It’s his ship and he can run it how he wants. But, when he does that, it really cuts through the happy horsecrap of “we’re all about input” and “we love feedback.” None of the shows have feedback on them any longer (aside from Tech Guy which is heavily moderated), the forums are gone, and any medium on which Twit can catch criticism is frowned upon, dismissed, or utterly demolished (consider how hard Leo is on Facebook and Reddit). He exhibits a total lack of class when anyone dares question him or his decisions, and seeing him lash out at critics over the years has made me less and less inclined to support him and TWiT in any way. I do enjoy the shows. I get a lot out of them, but it seems like, at this point, they’re just coasting and “riding it out.” I should’ve been way more excited about the Screen Savers reboot than I am, but I just see it as an attempt to recapture what was lost a long time ago, but we’ll hear over and over again how this is a sign that he listens to the fans and does what they’ve been asking for.

Only time will tell but the more I read here and on another site about the machinations that go on behind the scenes, the more I think this ship has not only sailed, but hit an iceberg and is on its way down as the violinists play and a woman floats on a door.
