BS: Turning Over A New Leaf - Apologies TTCM

We profusely apologize to all of those we might have offended on this Forum, and agonize over all the pain, insults, and flaming attributable to us, over the past little while.

And to show you we are sincere, our true identity will now be revealed:

I have looked at the postings of yours and out of the 32 so far you have managed to impart no useful knowledge at all,
keep up the fine tradition.

Thank you Caitrin.

We can't really be expected to reveal our true identity now can we?

If we did, we'd never be invited to Annap's and we hear she throws a really good spread.

Besides, all that food and drink is required, in order to endure those long-winded song circles, and, to not break out with spontaneous Turret's Syndrome in the process.

Have a nice weekend!

Ahh but you're mistaken Wildlone.

We did in fact provide lyrics for a Carol King song, mind
you, that was before we became a member of this illustrious Forum.

Thanks for the statistics though. Keep us posted.

ttcm, a moment ago i finally saw the funny side of this and sat here and laughed and laughed. you have made us so mad! mind you, since i DO have a brother like you, i don't and won't always see it as funny. he is now 66 years old with emphysema and lungs that periodically collapse- i would bet that you too are or were a smoker- and he is a most unhappy man. believe me, getting a negative rise out of people isn't worth it. the best thing he has ever done is to not get married. no one deserves the kind of punishment he would've given her.

Anybody else notice - we had a 'clare s' here throughout January, then in this thread (please don't refresh it!) grew increasingly vituperative and then accidentally signed 'clare s' to her new identity of 'many'? The style of TTCM's postings are remarkably similar...

Just an a addendum to the Gollum bit: I don't think TTCM had told very many riddles. In fact.. has he told any? That, I think is the only difference between them. Except, of course, that Gollum was a slimy mutant creature with something that he actually admired (his ring). Hey... you never know, there might actually be no difference at all!

Surely it should be "We are legion"?

The mistake, Sorcha, is to try to read any serious intent into it. It's not actually anybody "trying to restore the lost glories of the Mudcat" or "acting as the true conscience" and so forth. It's just one or two bored people playing games and getting a kick out of getting noticed and messing up the playpen. Keeps em off then streets.

HA HA! Tolkien RULES! Gollum said "And when we gets the ring, WE WILL HAVE THE POWER! What will we call ourselves, preciousss? Lord Smeagol? Most Precious? THE Gollum? We wants it, preciousss! WE WANTS IT!" BTW Many of Tolkien's poems, including Gollum-riddles have been set to music many times. Check 'em out! And not to nitpick, but Gollum once WAS a hobbit, normal...but the desire to possess the ring corrupted him, caused him to commit murder, and shriveled his mind until there was no thought left but to regain his precious.

No, probably not....

I believe Praise is the one on top (as that way she is a little closer to God).
Use a nice long (dirty) syringe on Dweebo will yah? Give him a triple dose, so that the effects are long lasting, and if he makes a sound or moves a muscle you're welcome to use my personal cane.

Can't wait to hear what ELO sounds like translated back into the original marsupial.


Gotta head back to the lab, and get the next batch of vaccine. Catch up with you in a while.

It is indeed, Lafkat, no surprise that you won a Mudcat Oscar here today, considering the amount of repetitive, and semi-repetitive posts that you do, in fact, make.

As has been noticed, it is 'wooden spoon', and not something to be treasured or brought attention to; as you and your butties impose your inflated egos on the rest of us harmless (until goaded) Christians and non-Christians alike.

Take a leaf out of Amissssss' book, and go write one if your'e so in need of attention.
