    Default It is a conspiracy I tell ya!

    A while back I passed 3,000 posts.

    Did anyone notice? NOOOOO

    Did anyone care? NOOOOO

    Was the Guvmint involved?

    Was your Guvmint Inolved?

    Was the post hijacked by conspiracy nuts?

    And now to resume our normal transmissions....

    Talking foil

    You were wrapped in aluminum foil so all of the posts to congratulate you just bounced off.

    CONGRATULATIONS. ONWARD TO THE NEXT 1000.

    The "Fying Kiwi" must have flown under our post count radar.

    Congrats Ian!

    And is it just me being confused, or has that damn Giraffe been eating the same leaves for the last 1/2 hour?

    That's ok Ian, join the club. Nobody has ever noticed or acknowledged when I reach a milestone LOL (except the guy the other day who noticed I was approaching the 4000 mark).

    Congrats, though. Here's to another 3000 insightful, entertaining posts! *clink*

    Kiwi:
    I remember a time when you and I were separated by a mere 10 posts. We were fighting for the 10th spot on the top ten list.
    Man; those were the days.
    Then you got busy, wasn't here so much and snuck by us on number 3000.
    Congratulations.
    Care to make it a race again?
    I'll wait.

    The Race is on between you and the WOT from Calgary. Is it Beer or Wine night for who gets to 4,000 or 5,000 posts first.

    Who will make it before the other.

    Beer and Nuts

    or

    Wine and Cheese.

    New Zealand wine and an assortment of fine cheeses for me please

    Congrats Ian.

    Actually what happened is when the record-breaking occasion occurred, it crossed the international date line, so it happened three hours before you actually posted it and we never saw it fly by.

    Man, I have no idea how many posts I have.

    So I figured that I needed to post this one so I could check.

    Ha Ha Ha.. even sailing over it and around it five or six (lost track now) times has not produced the end of the queue for me either. But I am now a card carrying "Shellback" for what thats worth.

    Shellback is for North-South, not East-West IIRC.

    (of course, if it was North-South - that could explain the carrot....)

    And for the Religious noodles of recent times.....

    Wayne the Painter

    There was a tradesman, a painter named Wayne, who was very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further.


    As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the painting of one of their biggest buildings. Wayne put in a bid, and because his price was so low, he got the job.

    And so he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with turpentine.

    Well, Wayne was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, and the sky opened, the rain poured down,


    Washing the thinned paint from all over the church and knocking Wayne clear off the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint.

    Wayne was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got on his knees and cried: "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?" And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...

    (you're going to love this)















    "Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"
