Brilliant writer, inventor of gonzo journalism, and angry man who left threatening, profanity-laden voicemail tirades to his AV dealer because his damn DVD player won't work. Hunter S. Thompson was everyman. His message below.

I write books! I write things that get out and people read! I'll ruin your fucking name, you goddamn idiots! Go to any book store, go to any magazine store, you can see what I can do to you...AND I WILL!

That's right, Hunter S. Thompson played the "Do you know who I am!" card with the guy who set up his DVD player. Amazing. If it's even possible, this makes us love him even more.
