I like it, as a concept.

The first disposable good-for-one-day-only BS thread.

Discuss any BS you wish, no need for a topic.

Today I am thinking about the BS way the discernment process works in our diocese.

There once was a thread with no heading
And not such a bad one, I'm betting

morbid ennui would be correct wouldn't it? I mean - moribund ennui might be questionable, but I should think that morbid ennui would be a correct construction.

"Talkin' Nothin' Blues" ..from memory:

"Well, I looked from the porch to the top of the wall,
Nothin' was there, nothin' at all.
Nothin' at all in any degree,
A predominance of vacancy"

There's a man in this town, goin' around,
Spreadin' nothin' all over the ground.
Heard some passin' people say,
"All that nothin' gets in the way..
There oughta be a law.

I went downtown, some nothin' to buy..
Pile in the window, 40 feet high.
The man in the store, he smile an' say..
'We got plenty o' nothin' today.
All vacuum packed....

Well, this song was written with nothin' in mind
Nothin' at all of any kind.
Nothin' at all in any respect..
We was aided by a poverty of intellect......

(your mileage may differ..)

Morbid Ennui would be a sort of lethal obsession with boring ideas, wouldn't it? Such as "how many posts can fit into a nameless thread?" I never thought I'd see the day when someone decided to test it out!!!

All right! Dictionary time!

morbid adj [L morbidus diseased, fr. morbus disease] (1656) 1 a : of, relating to, or characteristic of disease (~ anatomy) b: affected with or induced by disease (a ~ condition) c : productive of disease (~ substances)

Okay, I looked it up, too. My Webster's Ninth New Collegiate...

morbid adj [L morbidus diseased, fr. morbus disease; akin to Gk marainine to waste away - more at SMART] (1656) 1 a : of, relating to, or characteristic of disease (~ anatomy) b: affected with or induced by disease (a ~ condition) c : productive of disease (~ substances) 2 : abnormally susceptible to or characterized by gloomy or unwholesome feelings 3: GRISLY, GRUESOME (~ details) (curiosity)

From whence I support death and grotesque. HOWEVER, you coined it, so you define it. Mine was merely a suggestion of a possible interpretation. In any case, I thought it was kewl.

Interesting experiment, UB Ed. A similar one was conducted over a period of several months during the last year. The experiment generated four threads plus one thread about people who didn't participate in the experimental threads.

The experimental threads accumulated a total of 548 posts. The spin-off thread accumulated 61 posts. Dozens of limericks, poems, puns and other kinds of humor were posted to all of the threads, including the spin-off thread.

As a result of these threads, a minor subculture grew up within the Mudcat community that culminated in my taking a month and a half long trip to Canada and being crowned Ms. McGill 2001.

Don't post to this thread!
