    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

  4. Ain't it the truth. :LOL:
  5. Reminiscent of Dan's "Compressed thread" posting.
    Most of what we post here is at least a bit of someone else's work, but what the hey, if it's funny, then stick it up and give us all a laugh.
    Loved this one
  6. All been done before on here :p :roll: :wink:

    And by me :p
  7. Whoohoo, that means it's been funny twice!
