    Don't worry too much about it; was just a minor thing but may make people unhappy anyway. Had to change my sig just a little bit as well [face_laugh]

    Godzilla Final Wars was awesome [face_beatup]

    Hooper McFinney is a social thread...

    Every 10,000 posts, we launch a new version...

    B/c we can. Its one of those long-standing social conventions of the boards.

    Notice how it says 5.0?

    That means there were 4 others before this. :)

    So you alls will be around to see the start of 6.0 ;)

    The 10k relaunch idea developed after initial concerns that the primitive board systems here couldn't support threads with more than 10,000 posts in them. I think those concerns have been alleviated, but we relaunch every 10,000 anyway. It's just like our rule that you are safe only on holy ground; none of us will violate that law. It's tradition.

    No! Don't say that!

    NOOOOOO!!!

    Now the Fiddler on the Roof song is stuck in my head!

    Har, har, har... :D

    Now to increase your torment:

    She climbs a tree and scrapes her knee
    Her dress has got a tear
    She waltzes on her way to Mass
    And whistles on the stair
    And underneath her wimple
    She has curlers in her hair
    I even heard her singing in the abbey
    She's always late for chapel
    But her penitence is real
    She's always late for everything
    Except for every meal
    I hate to have to say it
    But I very firmly feel
    Maria's not an asset to the abbey
    I'd like to say a word in her behalf
    Maria makes me laugh

    How do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
    How do you find a word that means Maria?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!

    Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her
    Many a thing she ought to understand
    But how do you make her stay
    And listen to all you say
    How do you keep a wave upon the sand

    Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

    When I'm with her I'm confused
    Out of focus and bemused
    And I never know exactly where I am
    Unpredictable as weather
    She's as flighty as a feather
    She's a darling! She's a demon! She's a lamb!
    She'd outpester any pest
    Drive a hornet from its nest
    She could throw a whirling dervish out of whirl
    She is gentle! She is wild!
    She's a riddle! She's a child!
    She's a headache! She's an angel!
    She's a girl!

    How do you solve a problem like Maria?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
    How do you find a word that means Maria?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!

    Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her
    Many a thing she ought to understand
    But how do you make her stay
    And listen to all you say
    How do you keep a wave upon the sand

    Oh, how do you solve a problem like Marrriiiiiiiiiaaaaaaaaaa?

    Hooooow do you hooooold a moooooooooooooonbeam in ... your ... haaaaaaaaand?

    Usually around this time of year Thok would be out hunting with the rest of his Tribe.

    It's some sort of ritual where they find the largest Herring and set out with the spear guns from the mouth of the river; usually, the Bears will be able to learn to stay away from the obvious bottlenecks, so it can take them up to three or four weeks to snare their prize.

    When they have cured the pelts, the boy closest to "coming of age" will be able to fight the Chieftain for the Pelt in hand to hand combat. I don't think Thok's done that yet, but he'd be pretty close to the right age soon enough.

    On a totally different note, has anybody seen the fact-check on Sarah Palins speech? Apparently shes full of BS and has the political sense of an unnamed goat.

    HAH! The joke's on you, I never saw any of The Sound of Music except the Nazi occupation, because that's the WWII history related part.

    Also, PT, we are talking about the woman who said, on public TV, "What does a VP do?" so I don't expect too much from her speeches.

    a-HAAAAAA!!! But if you only watched the Nazi occupation part, then that would mean that you wouldn't have known where that song was from, since it's actually from the beginning of the film! You made the classic blunder, one of which is, never get into a land war in Asia, the second of which is, never go up against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Hahahaha! Hahahaha! Hahaha--

    I move that nobody but the Thoker posts the next version of this fine drinking establishment

    *re-shoulders the aforementioned Corellian Destroyer, the power cells charging with an intimidating hum*


    Anybody care to disagree?

    The only acceptable thread hosts for Hooper's are Lord Bane, Wall8, and Thok. That is the way of things.

    I move an amendment to Jello's motion. Wall8 was naught but a naked power grab by the Jellonic dynasty. I move that his motion now read that no one but Lord Bane or Thok be seen as legitimate authors of the Hooper McFinney's Bar & Grille franchise.
