Penn Valley, CA — We here at Gish Gallop regularly get quite colorful death threats from our fans. While dozens of calls and emails to Gish Gallop a day are really very nice and often informative, many calls to us are quite specific about the type of grave bodily harm Gish Gallop fan contacting us would like to inflict upon one writer or another.

These threats can be very scary and are graphic in nature so we all put our heads together to select some of our favorite calls, emails, and even public comments to publish here. Names are redacted to protect the goofy fucks and we’ve included the links to each story, where applicable.  Not every threat seemed to be linked to a Gish Gallop story.
