Condensed Thread Lifecycle

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' at netrider.net.au started by dan, Jul 1, 2005.

  1. Somwhat innocent threads can stretch into lengthy verbal punch-ons at the drop of a hat. Instead of waiting for the 30-odd messages to take shape over the course of a few days/weeks, we can condense it into the following thread summary:

    1 Initial Post of harmless topic :)
    2 Forum smart arses post quick witted comments :wink:

  2. To quote Sally Field's immortal line from "Smokey and the Bandit"

    "Dan, you have an uncanny ability to cut right through the BS and get to the heart of the matter."

  3. Dan, you have single-handedly taken all the fun out of the forum, what an amazingly accurate summary of the situation.
    Do you think we should take it one step further and ask the mods to add tags to each user, ie, forum level head, etc?
    I shall now retire to my villa in Majorca and grow daliahs

  17. This has obviously all been said before

    That was from Julie andrews in SOB

    Yawn more of the same

    That statement would be based on the presumption that there was humour here to start with. Could you please supply proof of that ?

  18. Hey Helina, Julie may have said that in the movie you mentioned, I am not aware of that having not seen that movie, but Sally Field certainly also said it in Smokey and the Bandit which is where I got it from. I guess it depends on which movie came out first as to who copied who (not that it matters)
