‘Henry McMaster facts’ craze sweeps internet

Below: McMaster, whose tears cure
cancer. Too bad he never cried.
McMasterisms typically assign super-human qualities to Attorney General

B & P News - Columbia

The South Carolina Attorney General’s Office hardly seems a likely source of the next hot trend, but that hasn’t stopped the grass-fire proliferation of a new internet phenomenon -- “Henry McMaster facts.” These McMasterisms, as they are also known, are typically extreme exaggerations about the Republican Attorney General that are created, compiled, and circulated in internet forums such as fansites and weblogs.

And their popularity seems to be growing exponentially. One example is the popular website McMasterpiece.com, which reports the following Henry McMasterisms:

Henry McMaster has to register every part of his body as a separate lethal weapon. His spleen is considered a concealed weapon in over 50 states.

Henry McMaster once rode a nine foot grizzly bear through an automatic car wash, instead of taking a shower.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Henry McMaster.

Henry McMaster once kicked a horse in the chin. Its descendants are known today as Giraffes.

Some analysts believe McMaster’s persona as a crimefighter contributes to his elevation to hero status, especially among students. The epicenter of this particular trend seems to be an offshoot of the University of South Carolina College Republicans that calls itself McMaster Beta Epsilon (MBE).

“Internet fads like the recent ‘Henry McMaster facts’ obsession often take root on college campuses,” said USC social science professor Chris P. Kareem. “I’m not surprised that the McMaster Betas were the instigators of this particular mania.”

The MBE website features what is probably the most comprehensive list of McMasterisms, including the following :

Henry McMaster knows the last digit of pi.

When Henry McMaster wants an egg, he cracks open a chicken.

Henry McMaster is widely predicted to be first black president. If you're thinking to yourself, "But Henry McMaster isn't black," then you are dead wrong. And stop being a racist.

Henry McMaster can make a woman climax simply by pointing in her direction and saying “boo-ya.”

When Henry McMaster falls in water, Henry McMaster doesn't get wet. Water gets Henry McMaster.

Sources close to the Attorney General say that he is unaware of the phenomenon and his cult status among thousands of McMaster enthusiasts. Most say his reputation takes a back seat to simply doing his job well.

“Any time Henry McMaster spends on the internet is time spent cracking down on online predators,” said McMaster spokesman Trey Walker. “When he finds them, he stalks and destroys them with extreme prejudice. That’s why he drives an ice cream truck covered in human skulls.”
