Help Find Boner!

The title is a joke, but the topic is serious: Andrew Koenig is missing. You’ll naturally remember him as Richard “Boner” Stabone from Growing Pains.

“Andrew has recently been despondent and his family and friends are concerned for his well-being,” a police statement said.

The Koenigs are reaching out for public help, but their son’s disappearance is too painful for them to appear on camera to talk about it, Walter Koenig said.

“I tried it once, and it was just too difficult,” he said.

I also never put two and two together to notice that Andrew is the son of Walter Koenig, Star Trek’s Pavel Chekov. In any case we at the Ping hope for good news from this young man soon.

I lost my boner once. Viagra helped a lot.

I saw this too! Very sad…what I read implied that he had given away a lot of his possessions.

If he is really depressed, I doubt he knows that people still know who he is and that many care about him.

What happened to my comments? What’s going on with the Daily Ping?

It’s too bad that spam has had such a bad effect on what was a really fun place to go.

This string you have to enter doesn’t work. If you miss it the first time, you have to save your quote and reload the page. If you just keep entering a new string, the computer doesn’t recognize it anyway unless you reload the page.

Hang tight, Joseph. Commenting issues will soon be a thing of the past.

There’s my missing comment! Now with the updated story, it’s in really poor taste. Sorry! I wrote it before anyone knew what happened!

Oh well . . .

“Spam Prevention: You cannot post a comment so soon after submitting another one.”

This comment really blows, by the way. Now I remember why I quit posting so often in support of the Ping. I hope the updates change things like this. I miss the old days.

No offense to the serious nature of this particular Ping, though.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
