As I recall, someone demanded that newbies introduce themselves by answering the following questions... [Roll Eyes]

So I suppose it's now or never.

1. Have you ever been involved in an urban legend situation?

Actually, no, but a friend of mine's girlfriend was once involved in an intimate situation with a frankfurter in her dorm room when she heard her oh-so-friendly roommate enter the room. Having gone quiet, she fooled the roommate into thinking she was asleep, and therefore the roommate politely got what she needed without the use of the lights. When the door closed, the girl resumed her session only to suffer from an unfortunate breakage event. She immediately jumped up and turned on the light only to find a creepy clown statue perched near the doorway. Before dying of shock, the poor girl was able to compose a rather touching piece warning of the dangers of masturbation vis-a-vis one's future opportunities for reunion with deities and creators of all types. Unfortunately, the missive was misplaced in the roommate's rather callous rush to empty out the other side of ther room so that she could hold more parties, the first of which came after she found out that she would, per university policy, receive automatic A's for the semester.

2. How many licks does it take to get to the center of the ULMB?

It turns out that licking snopesters is not recommended. Often, such activities are followed swiftly by abdominal pains.

3a. Can you contribute meaningfully to philosophical debates over life-affirming or moral issues?

Yes! Now with plagiarism!

3b. Can you contribute meaningfully to philosophical debates over glurge?

Yes! Vomit-free!


Okay, this has gone on long enough. I am happy to be a part of the community insofar as this post makes me feel so. If you have actual tasks, I will tackle them, but I am a newcomer to message boarding generally, so please maintain the proper distance.

Hey guys, I noticed that the jello shots were still evolving, so I just stopped in to see if anyone could use some outdated yogurt in here. Live culture included - and trust me, they've been hanging around in my fridge long enough to have developed personalities.

I have Lime, Lemon and something that used to be Orange Creme. Have fun, kids!

switzy227, you need to do the tasks listed on Page 1 of this thread. Hurry up 'cause the Georgian dancing girls' hair won't braid itself.

1. Find the ugliest Christmas-or Hanukkah-related costume and wear it to the initiation.
Make me out of clay
2. Watch a nuclear war film of your choice.
Who's bringing the popcorn
3. You have two options here. Either:

a. Braid a Georgian dancing lady's hair - two plaits, one on each side.

or

b. Polish a Georgian dancing guy's boots and dagger. (No, I don't mean this in a NFBSK manner!)

4. Go to YouTube and find a video of Georgian dancers.

5. Strip down below the belt, put on a pair of edible undies (optional), smear peanut butter, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and Christmas candy all over your NFBSK, and call upon Nina, our resident Lickitung.

6. Find a D&D miniature you like and give it a repaint job.

Cirque de Soleil just reeks of class

Why stop at panties?

I threw all of mine away when then started talking to me...sassy little sobs.....

Hi everyone, I'm still sort of new. I have a few questions...please don't think me stoopid. [Smile]

1. Why do people make a note “edit” or “ETA” when they edit a post? Is that a requirement, or just something nice that people do?

2. What’s a hijack?

3. Those puns underneath the menber icons – who makes them up? Is it okay to change them, or should I leave them alone? Are they different for different people depending on how many posts you’ve had, or how long you’ve been a member, or what?

It's a nice thing people do to let everyone know that the post has been edited. It's especially useful if you post something in response to someone else's post, and then they change their post accordingly. That way your post doesn't look dumb.

2. What’s a hijack?
When a thread is talking about something and someone posts something that may be vaguely connected to the thread topic, but veers off in a different direction. Sometimes people will mark these with a tongue-in-cheek [hijack] Blah blah blah [/hijack]

There are standard ones that differ depending on how many posts you have made. But if you go to edit your profile, you are welcome to change it, so long as your new pun fits the theme. For example, this month's theme is a Christmas song + something related to consumerism.

I hope that helps.

You're not too late, cageboy. You still have 6 days to go do the tasks listed on page 1. The Georgian dancers await!

Well, this sounds like a fun night in...

Would this count?

All 96 minutes?

That's not a dagger... this is a dagger.

This is George. The Wiggles rock.

Oh, Nina... Well, apparently it's PB & whipped cream.

Can I pwn this one? (I don't think I can speak geek).

That's all for now.
Except for...

Maple Tree, thou art young and cheesy-grin'ed. I art old and less so. Never-the-less, I offer this variegated font and this clever euphemism, sourced from Google: “Lost” of course was a very clever euphemism for “brown.”*

Now, did someone mention jello?
