    If you accidentally step on any penguins, don't sweat it. It happens all the time here.

    Welcome, Natia. I believe that Evo said something about a refrigeration problem that put a temporary halt to the 'Welcome Fish' tradition. There's still some of Tsu's birthday cake lying around somewhere, though.
    Don't worry about bothering us. As long as you stay away from the subjects of perpetual motion or aeroplanes on conveyor belts, we're pretty easy to get along with. :smile:

    And stepping on penguins is actually encouraged. It's fun, emotionally satisfying, and easy (they're not very quick). :biggrin:

    Prepare The Newbie Ritual!

    Newbie Ritual? which one? oh no! where am i? whooooooops! WHAT THE .......!!!! oh it was a fish! a fish! i've just squashed a fi... or is it a penguin?

    tu-du-du...... tuu-du-duuuuu......... agrh what a nasty smell!

    well, if the ritual isn't going to hurt me - i'm ready :)

    by the way, Danger, what do you think about creating a jet that can take off from the moving conveyor belt by means of the energy developed during the transformation of gravity into ice and further usage of penguin brute force? i've the theory developed and can email you all the plots ;)

    Oooh, good shot!!!! That one had to hurt.

    There are fish in the new freezer behind the welcome tent. There is also a supply of sea urchins, be careful, those spines hurt!!

    Welcome natia!

    Wait, something's wrong with the smileys, are we missing one? :grumpy:

    We need a fish smiley.

    Begone with your crackpottery! Everyone knows that if there's a penguin involved it can't possibly work. :grumpy:

    Depends how he is fried, perhaps. Literally or figuatively. Literally might be a problem. He'll be easy to catch, if you want to pursue "literally". Waddle, waddle, waddle.

    I know, the force is strong in this one. Usually a direct hit with a fish does them in.

    If the force in this one can withstand that kind of shock, we will need emergency counter-measures - quick, pull my finger! :yuck:

    Amateur! :tongue:
    With one good pizza and a dozen beers, I can lay waste to you and any army of your choosing... no finger-pulling required (and definitely not recommended).
