Joshua Martinez carpooled with Christian Weston Chandler when they attended James Madison University for speech therapy as children. Joshua's attendance was required due to his thick Spanish accent.
Years later, apparently, after Chris finished high school and returned to Ruckersville, he and Joshua remained friends. The two took to hanging out after school in Harrisonburg, a town several miles northwest of Charlottesville, where they would eat at a restaurant called Country Cookin and loiter around an abandoned airplane. While Josh has moved on, Chris never really got over his habit of hanging around and making a nuisance of himself.

Joshua was the first troll to masquerade as a boyfriend-free girl in order to fuck with Chris. In the fall of 2007, he pretended to hook Chris up with a girl named Lori Lopez, chatting with Chris as her and sending him pictures. These images were actually pictures of the pop star Vanessa Hudgens. The truly hilarious part of this is that Joshua closed communication as her by confiding to Chris that "she" actually loved Josh. Eventually Chris discovered that he was trolled, and (as he does about every humiliation inflicted upon him) wrote about it in his comic.
After Chris discovered he had become a lolcow, he tried diverting the attention from himself to Joshua with gems like the following edit to his ED page. Since Chris was still of the belief that trolls went after him because he was so amazing and talented at the time, the reasoning he gives for the unknowable hordes of the Internet to descend upon Josh amount to a weird ramble about how successful in life and sex Josh is.

In early 2009, Josh served as a sort of Eastern Front for the trolling war on Chris, as he impersonated Vanessa Hudgens.
The trolling culminated in Josh attempting to sell a special PSP to Chris intended for "Vanessa." He was foiled when trolls suspected that Josh was doing so for personal gain, and not simply for the lulz. Josh isn't exactly too bright either — see the Vanessa Saga chats for ample evidence of his limited imagination and clumsy attempts to manipulate Chris — and Chris's dalliances with Vanessa were also interfering with the success of Ivy. Josh's involvement ended and Chris canceled the check for the PSP according to Ivy's instructions, yet Chris refused to return it because "Vanessa would be upset." It was a knock-down, drag-out case of retard vs. retard.
Chris's parents are furious at Josh, and actually did go to the police in an attempt to bring him in for conning Chris out of his cash. However, during the exact same visit Bob and Barb found out that Chris was stealing money from them, prompting Bob to deny police assistance for fear that Chris could be implicated.
Josh has since stopped talking to Chris.
