    • Post 4000

      Looks like today's the day. Are we going to have a party to celebrate? One would think so with all this talk of Guinness leading up to the momentous occasion.

      If we're making this much of a fuss for 4000, imagine the freakin' party we'll be having for #5000!!!!

        I do a lot of crappie fishing, but sometimes I have a good day!

        M&M's aren't too bad, but try peeling a tootsie roll pop, They are hard as a rock..

        I'm all out of Guiness, but I do have some Jim Beam Black Label, I guess I will make due..

        I like my cats southern fried, better with hush-puppies beside.

        Did anybody notice the Forums go down the other day.. I confess, I was looking back through the previous pages of this thread, and suddenly everything locked up.. Coincedence??? Perhaps, maybe, NOT...

        • rhv, don't you know a "crappie" day fishing is ALWAYS better than any good day at work?

          As for the forums going down while you were viewing earlier pages of this topic, that would be because you interupted the time/space continum. This interuption is due to the high volume of posts in this thread.

          I'm all for a cause that supports the use of large quanities of Guinness and good Scotch in the same sentence!

          • Guinness is gooooood.

            My glass is raised for Jerry Garcia to make post 4,000 a reality.

            Don't make me wait for long, it looks so gooooood.

            • Writing Personnel Evaluation Reports SUCKS, even when it is a good one, that is well deserved!.

              I think I'll have that Guinness now, especially since Ian is a day ahead of us already. hehehehehe

              • Um Rick.

                You Plonker.

                Have a look at the top right of your post in the black bar and look at your post number mate.

                The number of replies was showing 3,999 on the menu page, that would be because 3,999 people had replied to the original post.

                What is 3,999 + 1 Rick ?????

                  As for your idea rhvfd1214, of fried cat, I got fried last night, thank you very much.

                  And I second Calgary's motion for a party!! WooHoo!

                  And Jerry? The (dark) chocolate needs to be on the side, not dipped.

                        Actually, I've never tried to add Ricks. Do you carry the naught or subtract it?

                              Neither! It just ain't even SAVE to contemplate such a thing. Any more than one Rick in any crowd is often TOO MUCH for the Masses.

                              Oh. And Ian, I think your math might out by one. I know the post count read 4000 when I made "That" post, but I do believe that my response would be 3999 responses to the ORIGINAL post....???

                              • Nobody be too hard on Rick for getting 4000. He may have single-handedly saved the entire cyberspace by preventing the end of the Thread Killers...

                                Then again, he may have not realized the impact of his post on our pre-planned party extravaganza that was waiting on Jerry. Unfortunately, I had to send all of Jerry's strippers and "loose women" home. Sorry Jerry, there's always next time....


                                Edit: Never mind this post. It seems that Jerry has regained his spot as "THE GREATEST THREAD KILLER OF ALL!"
