    Yes, we're getting close to that time of year. We're going to need nominees for Funniest Member.

    This has been a rather dry year. I know some of you are just hilarious. It's time to start strutting your stuff.

    Artman, where are you?

    Now that's the spirit!! I guess a nomination for turbo might be in his future. :approve:

    Come on, we've got plenty of funny people. jimmysnider can come up with some really funny lines, unfortunately he was killed by a Vulcan death pinch yesterday due to a misunderstanding over a puzzle.

    I'm sorry. I didn't know there was a misunderstanding. I thought it was intentional and warranted a pre-emptive cleansing. My bad.

    I won't even try for that award. I am way too serious.

    In elementary school and junior high, my peers called me Spoc because I was very serious and intensely interested (even immersed) in math and science, and it didn't help that my mom liked to cut my hair short so that I pretty much did look Spoc.

    I did have a sense of humor - I just didn't understand the jokes.

    The 2006 funniest members disappeared. This is probably just a test to see who is the least intensely focused on maths and science. The winners are then culled.

    :bugeye: I'll bet that your prof was just wishing it was still fully acceptable to invite a student to leave the classroom. I might have done so anyway, and dealt with the repercussions later. "Mr. History Buff, if you think you already know the material better than I do, and cannot conduct yourself as an adult respectful of others in this classroom, you will find the door is over there."

    Edit: Sorry, but your reason for editing is funnier than the original post (but you can see I beat you to it with the quote). I'm afraid you're still qualified for nomination. :biggrin:

    Oh, we throw them into the volcano as a sacrifice to the PF gods. I thought everyone knew that's what happens to the funniest member. The only reason Cyrus is still around is that he pushed Pengwuino in first.

    Yes I totally agree. It's not acceptable at all at the University level. I usually just shake my head, but the "MEEEEE" was intensely funny.

    Cyrus is still around, but his penguin sidekick vanished.

    MIH got promoted to Mentor,

    and the others have been in and out of GD on and off.

    BobG has been on the road.

    Arildno is helping out a lot with homework.

    Wolram's around, but he is being more serious these days.

    Zooby is around, but he's drawing/sketching, and so is Lisa now and then.

    Artman is AWOL.

    Oh well it appears that I haven't been keeping track but then again I use nexus where Astro is still engineering guru. The PF volcano god isn't nearly as hungry as I'd thought. I think we have our willing sacrifise for this year though :smile:

    I guess Greg is doing an multiverse experiment. Different realities in Nexusverse vs Primeverse. Or is the concurrent reality theory.

    :rofl: Despite all your protests, I think you're demonstrating a definite funny streak there. :biggrin: Don't worry, once the volcano god gets a mouthful of that beard and all that hair, he'll probably just spit you back out.

    If anyone found my posts humorous, then I am satisfied. I'm not sure how the contest works. How can I be the funniest member if I am not a member? As for death pinches, I've developed a tolerance.
