And the chorus of Vikings that was, until now, sitting quietly in the corner of the bar enjoying their scones and tea, began singing...

This post is pointless and has no reason;
But still it exists, throughout the season.
It has no content, it has no meaning,
It is just another case of blatant spamming.

The few faithful gather in the forum,
Patiently waiting for the comic's return.
In their hearts, they bide their time,
In their hearts, their love never fades.

Woah! I ain't never seen a <i>juggernot</i> before.

Uh, your poem lacks rhyme and meter. Allow me to illustrate:

<i>
Pointless posts, though void of reason
Linger on throughout the season
Lacking content, wit, and planning
Nothing more than blatant spamming
</i>

Okay, "planning" doesn't <i>quite</i> rhyme with "spamming", but it's closer than "meaning"!

...but I liked it anyway.

For doggerel is was quite good. (And if it wasn't obvious, my "critisism" was in jest. And thanks for the new word: "doggerel")

I scan this forum semi-regularly. I don't think you can take credit for my posts. :wink:

Heh, I don't mind constructive critisism. It helps improve me.

Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words "mank"and "ind." What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

1)Never respond to anything until the fourth reminder - then turn it in late and follow through with complaint about how the process takes soooooooooo long.

3.Keep in mind that it is much easier to find reasons why something can't or shouldn't be done than to find innovative solutions to the real problem.

4. Be amazed and vociferous when people don't recognize that your document (which you've been working on for five years!) simply must be given the highest priority by staff for balloting or publishing. An additional week's delay could be disastrous!
