WHO DOES NOT WANT TO RECOMMEND THE 11/11 VOTING NEWS THREAD? ? ?
Edited on Fri Nov-12-10 05:01 PM by Bill Bored
I don't know what this guy's agenda is, but he's transcribed part of a Seinfeld episode that might be applicable to this forum, so that's why I'm linking to it (and to get someone to recommend the 11/11 Voting News Thread, which only has 4 Recs after almost a day on the board!):

ORGANIZER: Uh...o.k., you're checked in. Here's your AIDS ribbon.

KRAMER: Uh, no thanks.

ORGANIZER: You don't want to wear an AIDS ribbon?

KRAMER: No.

ORGANIZER: But you have to wear an AIDS ribbon.

KRAMER: I have to?

ORGANIZER: Yes.

KRAMER: See, that's why I don't want to.

ORGANIZER: But everyone wears the ribbon. You must wear the ribbon!

KRAMER: You know what you are? You're a ribbon bully. <Walks away.>

ORGANIZER: Hey you! Come back here! Come back here and put this on!

New scene - Kramer in the AIDS walk. Some AIDS activists accost him for failing to wear the red ribbon.

WALKER #1: Hey, where's your ribbon?

KRAMER: Oh, I don't wear the ribbon.

WALKER #2: Oh, you don't wear the ribbon? Aren't you against AIDS?

KRAMER: Yeah, I'm against AIDS. I mean, I'm walking, aren't I? I just don't wear the ribbon.

WALKER #3: Who do you think you are?

WALKER #1: Put the ribbon on!

WALKER #2: Hey, Cedric! Bob! This guy won't wear a ribbon! <Cedric and Bob turn around and glare at Kramer.>


BOB: Who? Who does not want to wear the ribbon? :grr:
<Kramer is frightened.>

New scene - Kramer surrounded by Cedric, Bob, and the other walkers.

BOB: So! What's it going to be? Are you going to wear the ribbon?

KRAMER (nervously): No! Never.

BOB: But I am wearing the ribbon. He is wearing the ribbon. We are all wearing the ribbon! So why aren't you going to wear the ribbon!?

KRAMER: This is America! I don't have to wear anything I don't want to wear!

CEDRIC: What are we gonna do with him?

BOB: I guess we are just going to have to teach him to wear the ribbon!

<Kramer tries to climb up a fire escape, but the mob grabs him and pulls him back down. Kramer screams.>

Now then:

Who does not want to recommend the 11/11 Voting News thread?: :grr:

3. A thread started because no one rec'd a thread.
For that reason alone, I won't rec it. I will not unrec it becaus I do ont unrec threads. Not even this one.

4. That's right and it's not the first time. People are busy and take others' hard work for granted. nt

7. NO SOUP FOR YOU!

While this is a sometimes embittered forum, a long time a go, regular posters/lurkers in ER would try to maintain that the daily election news always made it to the Greatest page so people who didn't visit the forum on a regular basis would have the opportunity to read and keep up date date with a concise grouping of information. This is just a friendly rejoinder to that camaraderie

I respect you position... just quite don't understand your need to say it... but hey have at it.

6. I'm glad you did. Have to make checking this forum part of a routine
because I don't often enough.
