 ROBERT_ZILDJIANHey, it looks like they finally fired that Mr. Magoo guy. Seriously, who thought he was a good choice to work in a cymbal factory? Every day was like a goddamn indoor thunderstorm with him around.


Get ready to break some hard news to the third most important member of your Megadeth cover band, because Robert Zildjian, the founder of Sabian Cymbals, died last week at the age of 89. Sabian is, of course, not to be confused with infamous female masturbatory saddle the Sybian. That’s probably not a very common misunderstanding, but I just felt the need to make sure my lady readers were aware of how sensitive I am to their self-pleasuring needs. This blog is very feminist, deal with it.

Zildjian founded Sabian in 1981 after a legal battle with his brother, Armand, over their inheritance of the family business, Avedis Zildjian Co., a major cymbal maker. The companies remain competitors.

I’m really not sure what the big deal is here. Instant Rimshot is pretty much gonna put all of these companies out of business anyway. It’s all I ever use when people hire me to host their company roasts, and I never hear anyone complaining. Well, except for Tina in payroll, but if she didn’t want people making jokes about her abortion she shouldn’t have used her real name at Planned Parenthood. It’s like you’re asking people to find out, Tina!
