    Where is our Tribdog??

    Seriously, does anyone know? I miss the bugger, good times we had the last few months before he disappeared. Where did he go? I hope it wasn't that check business...

    LOL! You apparently need to catch up on some reading too! He's been around since this weekend.

    OH thank goodness, i was really starting to worry that Danger would get the pink ribbon this year, that would have been a tragedy.

    Really though, glad to hear that.

    Well, I still think Danger is going to give him a run for his money on the pink ribbon this year! And SOS and Huck and Artman! A lot of strong candidates this year. He's not going to be able to count on incumbency status this time around.

    Yeah, but he has to be here to win.

    I personally will be voting for Tribdog purely because I don't like any of the other possible candidates.

    I'm voting for Smurf, because I hear he looks good in pink. :tongue:

    I'm going for Franz, because he has an incredible talent for being funny without meaning to be.

    You guys are forgetting that the mentors decide who gets on the list. You can't vote for someone that's not on the list. (no write ins)

    Funny, I haven't seen any chocolate or King Crab leg deliveries yet. I guess we may not have a "funniest member" category for 2005. tsk, tsk

    *Calls Paris*
    *I thought I %^#@& told you it was supposed to be a daily delivery! No, no, no, I specifically told you the address was Choosemenow, WI, NOT Cheesemenow! :mad: :grumpy: :mad: Heads will roll if she doesn't get those deliveries resumed immediately!"

    *Calls Alaska*
    "Hi, are king crab legs in season?"

    I had a vote in that once. But now I am just not found funny anymore so I will have no chance this year (although, honesty, I will never have a chance :tongue2:. Too many funny people around :biggrin:).

    For my money, the very funniest things said here have come out of the mouths of people who aren't always trying to be funny. You see a post by tribdog and you know instantly it is going to be a wisecrack of some kind. You're already innoculated. That's why the things that have made me laugh hardest were the ones I wasn't expecting. You may be surprised but no one has made me laugh harder and taken me by surprise more often than Ivan Seeking. In the same vein, Evo has a finely honed instinct about when to hit you by surprise with a crack you weren't expecting at all.Artman's Rhinoceros thread was the same thing; it seemed to come out of nowhere. As for people who are quick to quip, the ones you expect it from, no one gives me the giggles more than Math Is Hard. Then, of course, there's plover.

    *Huckleberry stuffs more chocolate in his mouth*
    For some reason I keep getting these daily deliveries of chocolate and crab legs. I've eaten most of the chocolate, but I can't stand crab legs. I'm running out of room in the fridge.

    My mistake, it appears that the only member up for the "funniest member" award is Moonbear! :biggrin:

    Cheesemenow :rofl:

    Alas? :uhh:

    What about Gale? She always makes me laugh. I can actually hear what she's saying by the way she writes. And Pillow Head! C'mon, how can anyone beat that? :rofl:

    zooby is clever and funny too. There are several layers of humor in his jokes. He can spin a good yarn too. :biggrin:
     
  18. May 17, 2005 #17
    It's true. You sneak up on people with your jokes.
     
  19. May 17, 2005 #18
    Zooby is very funny, so is Gale, and you are also.

    I put these two phrases together in my head and thought, "It must be hard to run with crab legs." :rofl:

    He's snuck up behind me a few times too... :uhh: I mean Yes, he's very funny. :biggrin:

    It's not that hard if Evo is chasing you with a mallet and a fork, wearing a bib. And it makes it a lot easier to scuttle sideways through the doorways.

    What jokes?

    :biggrin:

    I think he and Evo are the masters of the instinct of when to shift suddenly from semi-serious into the humor gear.

    As for this rhinoceros thread, I hope by now you've seen an exorcist.
     
  24. May 17, 2005 #23
    I agree. Ivan does come out with some brilliant humor. Such as you guys in the mouse thread. I loved that. Evo can come out with things out of nowhere that really crack me up. Some of my biggest laughs came from her. there are some marvelously funny people on this forum. Makes for great reading.

    Let's just say you have a special understanding of patents.
     
  26. May 17, 2005 #25
    Exactly, Evo always takes me by surprise. I thought Chroot's addition to the mouse thread was a minor masterpiece, and there are alot of others who can write hysterical things when they feel like it.
