There are still many incidents, rivalries, and in-jokes that flew right past me, but that's okay. It's just that there are so many people here!

One of the more legendary Lounge flamefests was the one where someone got absolutely torched for saying he/she made fried chicken with cornflake breading.

26. Apparently, "when I think _______ I think of ______"is the new yak

But, yes, once -- no so very long ago -- thundering herds of yak references stretched across this forum from margin to margin.

Those were the days.

I'm feeling nostalgic now....it may be time to break out the yak underwear again....

Think stream of consciousness. Whatever's on your mind and you feel like posting a thread, go to it. As for inside jokes, I've been here since '01 and much of the inside stuff goes right over my head.

32. Oh, one more actual explanation (this should be enough to scare you off, since we're crazy)
billyskank asked to be reminded to get bread on his way home from work, because he kept forgetting.

Well, the lounge was filled up with dozens of threads reading "buy bread billyskank!" for some time, in what is now known as the bread riot, and he'll probably never ask us to remind him about anything ever again.

37. And then there was the flood of pictures of a smiling billyskank...
in front of empty bread shelves at the grocery.

I do have to say that the whole bread uprising (pun intended) was the funniest accidental Lounge joke I've seen.

circumcision, breastfeeding, or....

Um, there's a couple more that will get you smited by Lounge Lizards. I forget offhand. Just keep it mind that doing so is almost but not quite as much fun as frenching a light socket.

I think I got a little lost yesterday. For there to be so many of you, you all seem to know each other very well. This is a very interesting place.

68. What are you, a MORAN?
;-)

Don't ever be confused (or think somebody doesn't know how to spell) if you see "moron" spelled "moran". It's an inside joked aimed at the RWers. Somebody around here will have the pic no doubt.

Well, it is getting a little worn, but a goodie none the less.

and never make fun of haysuz even if he does taste like corn flaked battered chicken from the olive garden.

70. The heavy flag flaps not at night
The cafes in Paris are many.

The troll is under the bridge is black.

From tiny acorns come mighty oaks.

The sky is not blue at night.

82. That's because we all gathered at an undisclosed location, took a vote,
and decided to purposely keep you in the dark. It's kind of like "The Truman Show."

88. welcome, this is a fun place. I was out of touch for about 3
weeks recently and came in to a whole new world of things which made no sense to me. Roll with it.


This is not a particularly serious place, although we do discuss serious things from time to time and comfort one another as well.


PS if you don't like cats, just don't bring it up. This is a very cat friendly zone.

If you love cats or dogs, for that matter and you own any, you WILL be REQUIRED to post their picture if you are going to talk about them.

The more you hang around, the more of the "inside jokes" you'll see form, or be repeated...

But I definitely remember feeling like that when I first started posting, too! :hug:
