Sin Under Florida Sun! Sheep Meet Stroker: Sex-Toy Services for Second Life?

by Alphaville Herald on 30/04/07 at 11:54 am

Img_2011Herald Correspondent Pat the Rat infiltrated the recent corporate retreat of metaverse services providers Electric Sheep Company in Tampa, Florida, and returned with photos that clearly show the Sheep hooking up with Second Life sex mogul Stroker Serpentine (a former Herald Post 6 Man). Here’s Sheep CEO Sibley Verbeck (in hat) and Stroker (in horns), obviously celebrating their newly coined strategic “partnership.” And the evening descended from there, faithful reader. Are the Sheep hooking up with Stroker? Will open-source bots soon be spidering your skybox? How soon before Linden Lab introduces a new class of X-rated sims? Even Pat had to shield those paparazzi eyes before the evening was out. After the jump, behold…

In return for his investment, Stroker insisted the Sheep take one of his employees on board; she can be identified by her blond hair and willingness to cozy up to current Sheep employees

    All I can say is that I am shocked by this.


    Shocked, I tell you.

    Did I say I was shocked?

    Ahhh the depravity. So refreshing. So original. No sheep!!?? Victor Shakapopulis is outraged, I tell you, outraged! Deep in the hill country of Greece, an elderly man weeps.

    So…after they burn through the CBS grant money on stuff like this, what next?

    Where was this anyways? The “Holy shit I got paid 50,000 dollars for Amsterdam” party?

    Awww… The herald wasn’t invited to their party? Had to steal all the photos from their site I bet?

    You know, the phrase “Sex and Sheep” used to mean something nasty. It didn’t even involve computers. :)

    I’m sorry but this is just gross. It’s adolescent boys whacking off at prim cubes.

    I guess I’m with the griefers on this one. Speaking of which, how come the Herald never covered the paperboy & co affair?

    lmao, awww, Jerry’s got a winkie on his head.

    I heard you could pop into this party if you wanted… it’s just the getting from point a to point b that deterred most people at this time of year: FINALS WEEK zomg

    Hahaha, yes, as you can see I was dutifully testing out some of Stroker’s top secret brain-implant technology. :p

    Long story short, Stroker threw a shindig at a place called [drum roll] Shepherd’s. We went, we saw, we drank, we danced (or in my case approximated dancing), we posed with shwag, and good times were had by all. Stroker, that was a fun night, and as it’s been said before, thanks for the mammaries! :p

    OK OK back to work, gawkers.

    While you were busy having a good time, there were – and still are – a lot of people with a lot of unanswered questions about your searchbot on the LL forums in a thread caled, “Automated Burglary.”

    Perhaps you could address some of those, particularly how the aggregated information is going to be used.

    Yes, Coco, thanks for the non-mammary memory there, we’d like to get some answers to not only Herald articles about the Sheep Scrape, but if you think it’s just me, then go to the thread called “Automated Burglary” and answer that!

    I’m all for societies having elites, especially elites that live to excess, live large, think big, are creative, do interesting stuff, to give fodder for the tabs that we working stiffs can read during those brief respites from our prim-pushing labour on the grid. But…we just want you to be *quality* swells, not just plain swells. And, not rip off the people with stuff like that search thing.

    I think that ESC should go and find something else to mess about with, and leave Second Life alone. After all, it’s not like they actually do anything that benefits anyone except themselves, is it?

    Heaven forfend anyone EVER has a good time, with a little immature fun! And thank gawd Pat the Rat wasn’t at my place this past weekend!

    I was pleased to facilitate some wanton depravity in my backyard. I can assure all interested parties that the Sheep are working hard to provide some innovative technologies to enhance EVERYONE’S SL. Even Lewis’. (P.S. There are already X-Rated Sim’s on the grid…they are just invis to most) ;P

    Funny, I was in Clearwater over the weekend visiting my family and something smelled off. It stunk like sweat socks, fun, and digerati. I called Jerry this morning and confirmed that he was indeed in Clearwater. We mourned that we were but two ships passing in the night. Or in this case and ship and a manure taker whose Captain had one to many the night before and woke up with a new cranial implant…

    I have no recollection of the events in question at Flip’s, but it did involve some of the usual suspects.

    Damn and I was in Sarasota…on vacation…not caring about anything but white sand and warm water and relaxation and food and drink.

    By the way, where was the scandal? No strippers from the DC Madame? No donkey show? No Les Moonves and Pacman Jones throwing 10 grand and the air and demanding you guys do a rain dance? No illegal cock fighting? Put some more effort into next time boys. ;-)
