The Internet Lumberjack (Robert “Bob” Chandler) was the father of the infamous internet personality Chris-chan. Since Bob answered the phone at his house to protect his autistic man-child son from the near-continuous onslaught of internet trolls, he was the subject of many prank calls, both with and without soundboards. He was even called at least once by a soundboard of his own son and one of himself, both of which he failed to recognize.
Bob's nickname of the "Internet Lumberjack" came from an incident on the night of February 14, 2009 (which was caught on audio) in which he was manipulated by a troll named Bryan Bash (via phone) into embarrassingly walking in on Chris while the latter was masturbating on webcam. Horrified and disgusted at the sight, he ordered his son off of the computer in a rare display of parental authority and said he was going to "cut the internet down".
His widow Barbara is known to many internet trolls and prank callers alike as "Snorlax" due to her substantial weight, diet of junk food and the fact that she spends most of her time sleeping, much like her Pokémon namesake. Prior to Bob's death, she only occasionally answered the phone at the Chandler household, but since being widowed, has taken over the job of shielding her manchild from would-be tormentors. Delusionally believing that Chris can do no wrong, she is known to be very hostile towards anyone who accuses him of wrongdoing, to the point that she even physically assaulted a police officer who was arresting her son after a hit-and-run incident on 28 October 2011.
Prank Call History
Bob Chandler was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on September 4, 1927. His parents were the late Robert Franklin Chandler Sr. and his wife, Jean Holloman Chandler. He was raised in Alabama, and later moved to Virginia. In addition to Chris and his wife Barbara, his family also included an ex-wife named Patricia, and a son and daughter, Dr. David Alan Chandler and Carol Suzanne Chandler, respectively, as well as an estranged stepson through Barbara, film critic Cole Smithey.
He graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Engineering and served in the United States Army Signal Corps in Seoul, South Korea during the Korean War. He worked for General Electric as an engineer with steels, plastics, etc. He also had patents for the controls for Plastic Molding Machines and it is claimed that without him, we would not have even a simple plastic funnel.
He also, by his own admission, had links to the Ku Klux Klan (and when asked, intimated that he is/was a member himself) and during one call with trolls, claimed to have participated in multiple cross-burnings.
Bob passed away at the age of 84 on the morning of Tuesday, September 6, 2011, at Martha Jefferson Hospital ICU in Charlottesville, VA surrounded by family, pastor and hospital staff. The cause of death is reported to have been congestive heart failure. He was well known as a lover of fast-food and, as revealed during surveillance of the Chandlers by some of the more determined trolls, ate breakfast at the Ruckersville Burger King every morning. Sadly, this diet of greasy food may have ultimately lead to his demise (or at least greatly contributed to it).
Dr. Perron calls Rocky Shoemaker
A December 2011 phone conversation with an acquaintance of Chris-chan by MistahBlonde2, posing as a court-appointed psychiatrist named "Dr. Perron", has revealed that the Chandlers' home has massive pest control problems. According to this same call, Bob was originally hospitalized, not for his heart condition, but for some kind of severe insect bites he had received all over his body and that he had been in quarantine for this shortly before his death in the ICU from heart failure.

- "I'm sick and tired of you calling up on my telephone."
- "I've done my service to mankind. I'm an old man now and I want to be left in peace by you FUCKERS out there!"
- "This is my phone, this is my phone number...that you're bothering...and I'm sick and tired of it!"
- "Ya know, I have friends in the Ku Klux Klan!...I've seen the crosses burnin', fella. I've seen 'em! And you don't want to see it. You don't want to see it."
- "Why don't you quit dialin' my number...and go somewhere and play a game with the gutter rats?"
- "There is on the internet...a bunch of trolls! And they persecute people."
- "Get in your lowlife gutter and stay there!"
- "What's on your mind?! You called me, now shut-up or get off the phone or speak!"
- "Well I don't know what you are or who you are, and I don't really care! But you're invadin' my privacy...and you're cussin' at me...and I don't like it!"
