Damn - it kept going & going & going....

In fact, a *lot* of links are broken. Please remove the last quotation mark (") from the "blog", "image" and "Google" links you posted. And put down that crack pipe. Right. Now. K. Thx. Bye.

On preview: no shit. And what's with this shit, pre-emptive double post? Inquiring minds want to know.

First MeFi post, aka thread #1, was about a movie, posted by mathowie, it no longer exists though.

loquacious: sure, as long as you take your haloperidol for a change.
posted by candle in the dark at 9:25 PM on August 1, 2005

Yeah, that would be a change.

When was the first sectarian Trotskyite split? Before the '56 invasion of Hungary or after?

Yeah, what I find revolting is the fact that Mr./Mrs./Ms./Mlle./M.Gen./It. Growabrain didn't even think of, you know, play with the URL. I mean, when you've discovered the 19th post, what does it take to interest you in the first post?

Metafilter: Did you not like the movie or something?

I lost quite a bit of time last night to that first comic book link.

The ancient Egyptians had a special regard for animal humor and cartoons, given the many examples of sketches on papyrus, paintings, and other drawings such as ducks pecking at someone's behind, baboons and cats out of control, animals riding on top of other unlikely animals, baboons playing instruments, and animals drinking and dining.

I guess Gary Larson is a lot older than we thought.

In the first link, the "urethane" comment is priceless.

Sure, you have to be a theater or english major person to really find it funny. But, dammit, it's funny.
