|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Hold the front, page.
I've done the back, now I'll get around to affront.
|Nov-03-06|| ||twinlark: yer not a were-pumpkin then?|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Ah, I see. Always thought Melbourne grew from a shanty town set up by folk queueing over-winter to get into the Cricket Ground...|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: "... woke one morning to find he had turned into a giant... artichoke"!|
Of course! That's it! Finally, Metamartichoke can be writ...
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Yep, Kafka's tale of the cereal killer Archie, who strangled three hypermart assistants while half-inching a box of crispyflakes, and nicking a dollar from the till...|
Headlines: Archie Chokes Three for a Dollar...
|Nov-03-06|| ||twinlark: ...and the moving hand, having writ, moves on to choke the arty metamorph...|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: I dislike words that refer to what politicians call 'this moment in time' (as opposed to 'this moment in space' or 'this moment in a cardboard box in Omsk') ... as a result, I shudder at "presently", I wince at "currently"...|
... and I'm off "now"...
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Met a Morph? Where? Oh, Sis!
Just pass the ball. The footbloodyball. Tmesis.
|Nov-03-06|| ||twinlark: reckon the 3M and 4M hurdles'll be kicked down by 2nite then?|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: I know they 'bought' Manhattan from the Manhattoes... who'd they buy Melbourne from? Nellie Melba?|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Hurdles? Dunno, me, I'm going round the Oval in circles...|
How'r'we doing scorewise anyhow?
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Aha. 3169 to 2107. You're way in front, old son. I feel kinda lapped. Like a lapped catholic.|
|Nov-03-06|| ||twinlark: The stage hook has grabbed me by the neck, my man, and I'm off to do some parental taxiing along the runway of teenage socialisation.|
Let's do this again at the turn of the next big M then. Maybe a rolling bender through all the taverns and lay waste to the city.
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: Can't, hic, quite keep count here, but it's something like 57 to 43 for me since this started on page 4 or thereabouts... or else 142 to 91 for you... or 76 each. Bit like the poll, rilly.
Come on you late voters. [quietly calls up 40 sockpuppets from the sockpuppet drawer...]|
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: G'night, TL. Since it's 2.00am, I reckon I'd better crawl away and root off, too.
Have fun out there in the big daylight.
|Nov-03-06|| ||Domdaniel: A Shaggy Dog Ending...
See, there was this big theatre where nobody turned up for the plays, and they had to hold pool and snooker competitions onstage instead. Big crowds, but rowdy. And the management couldn't afford signs saying "quiet please" or "sshhh" or "applause" or "it's okay to shout now". So they developed a routine using the equipment to hand - wave a pool stick or a snooker cue at the crowd, it means one thing. Wave the cue-rest or the extension or the spider, some other meaning. And the regulars got used to this system.
One night there's a big match, and a noisy crowd. So the new stage manager walked out and waved the cue-extension around. No effect. It got louder. Cheers, jeers, yells. The more he waved, the worse it got.
Until eventually one of the players turned to him and snapped: "Will you stop waving that extension cue? It means 'shout louder', you idiot. You should be using the Rest."
The new guy went pale. Oh, he said. I get it. The Rest...
Yesss, said the player.
- The Rest is Silence.
|Nov-04-06|| ||mack: Gosh, what a mess you two have left here. I expect you'll be wanting me to clean it up, too.|
|Mar-09-07|| ||soberknight: In accordance with tradition on this website, I hereby mark my 1000th post. A lot of them were useless puns, but I'm no longer involved in this community as much as in the past, so you'll all just have to laugh (or groan) without me. :)|
I know it's not a contest anyway, but I'll probably never get to 2000 posts. Heck, my kibitz count might always remain lower than my theoretical ELO rating.
I guess I'll thank everyone for making this site worthwhile; without the community, there's not much fun in reading through the games.
|Apr-29-07|| ||Chess Classics: <soberknight> I will not let you call your puns "worthless". Your "Storey" has to be in the top 10 posts on this site ever, out of, oh, what is it chessgames?! Hundreds of thousands.|
This is number 2000 for me. This means a lot for me...*wipes a tear*. Thank you all. *Bows.*
|May-30-07|| ||NakoSonorense: Just to follow cg.com's tradition...
This is my 2000th post!
|Jan-09-08|| ||OhioChessFan: On the recent completion of my 4000th post which I've been watching for a month, and then missed, anyway, Cheers and stuff.|
|Mar-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: similar to Beer?|
|Apr-25-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: Hey, Stiffler! How's the pale Ale?|
|Sep-21-12|| ||rapidcitychess: This is my 2000th post! Yippee!
Yes, some of them were on Odd Lie page. Some of them were bad puns. Some of them were incomprehensible. Somewhat like the latter word of the previous sentence.
But I have learned, and I had laughed. Thanks to everyone. I'm not even going to list names, because I will forget most of you.
But thank you all! May my rating grow like my post count!
I don't drink, here's a R Kola to me, but feel free to have some Ale.
|Sep-21-12|| ||brankat: <rapidcitychess> Congratulations! May there be many more thousands of posts to come. |
<But I have learned, and I had laughed.>
This is indeed how it should be. You have done much better than a certain (relatively) new kibitzer, who has neither learned nor laughed :-)
