  1. Dec 2, 2014 #1

    You have 13 days to make an impression. Go!

    In order to spotlight members who wouldn't otherwise be seen, I'm going to host a talent show. No bears allowed.

    *Grabs a clipboard*

    Go.

    He said "no bears"; that rules out the talent part.

    Seriously, this is not a presidential rally. People had a whole year to make impressions, and flashing their metaphorical boobs to garner attention now is not going to work.

    By the way, did I tell you I'm hosting a wild party in Vegas on New Year's Eve?* Everyone who votes for the only frumious member of the forum (in all categories) is invited. Complimentary doughnuts. Public drawing and quartering of a certain young Canadian pop star. Free punch.

    Can we have a grumpiness award this year? Awarded for notorious dryness, empathic frugality, and going above and beyond the call of duty of a PF member in handing out scoffs.
    I could nominate a member or two off the top of me head.

    But sir! You imply I had base reasons for saying that, whereas I just wanted phinds to finally win something.

    Now excuse me, as I must work on my acceptance speech.

    Oh! Please, Greg... please! I'm a natural. I don't even have to work at it. Hell, I'm not even awake most of the time that I'm on PF. Like now, for instance; I'm in the middle of a really nice dream about Roxanne back in the 70's, and for some reason am typing while... well, doing other things... go away, damn it!
    I'm non-discriminatory; I hate everyone, so the prize should just go to me without contest.

    I will suggest the entire mentor team to go on a strike for bad working conditions then! Doing hard dirty labour without any salary or job security! Where are the unions when you need them?! What are we going to do if Greg decides he does not want us any more?! We cannot just go and moderate another forum ... Pitchforks and torches! Who is with me?! :devil::biggrin:

    Edit: Speaking of procrastination, I usually do not write in British English, but I am too lazy to change the default setting and turn auto-correction off on my new Mac ...
