Well there he goes again with his randomness....
I guess he doesn't understand the concept of Children-oriented Comics.....
In my forum he made an intersting post in the RP forum, I edited a bit so it wasn't quite so "Adult" and did some grammar checking too.
I also had to delete a thread he made because it was rather :oops:

So I'm in with:
duh....what?

That's three for Duh... what?
If we had a fourth we could play euchre.

Consider me your fourth. "Duh...what?" basically sums up my reaction to everything invinible ever posts.

I put (ot) in the title since it was a Off Topic post and I couldn't spell Off Topic without costing some of the actual title.

Yes, we understood that it was an off-topic (OT) post. What I think we did not understand is why you thought we might need or want to see that thread from a forum that we don't belong to.

My philosophy on Off Topic posts (developed in the old newsgroup RACS) is to leave them be. Commenting on their off-topicness just keeps them alive longer than the on-topic posts. In RACS, worse than pointless flamey threads would go on for weeks on end, as people battled over whether some bit of comic stripety info was "on topic" or not. Heck, my pal Jim Alexander got flamed for posting a query about comic strip demographics in that "comic strip" newsgroup. (Comic strip demographics being off topic for a group that considered it's more pressing issue to be Luann's evolving hairstyle)

I speak here not as the guy in charge, but as just another poster, just voicing my laissez-faire attitude on the situation. :roll:

(and even here, I only say this for the reason that it allows me to say "laissez-faire" and sound like a big shot)

If this were a porn or spam link, then it would be rightfully deleted, otherwise might as well just move on. Doesn't anybody know how to start a new thread around here? :wink:

Or we could just hijack them and turn them into ongoing card games. Still off-topic and random, but in a fun way, rather than in a confugitating way.

((Confugitate: Verb. To confuse and agitate simultaneously. To confuse so much that agitation is produced.))

Actually, my original intention was that OP give a nice, short summary to what the intention of the topic he linked to meant so that I wouldn't have to wade through 50 pages of "who are these people?"
But hijacking, playing cards, and making up new words sounds stupenderiffic too.
So, I ask again. Cards anyone? The only deck I've got has holes in all the aces.

...Oh, wait that's my tarot deck... Dammit, where did the sprite take my real deck?!

I didn't take the deck. I'm almost sure I took the duck.

I bet Demon took it. He took your glaive, so why not your cards, too?

Never fear, Serall is here! In an associated bout of silliness, I shall tap into the imaginary power possed by me in the role playing forum to return your missing deck! FALAGHAKHKH!

::Makes a rubber ducky appear::

That's not right! Let me try again!

::Tosses duck aside::

BOM BOM BADILLIO!

::Turns Princess Loki into a smurf::

DOH! Let me fix that and try one more time!

::Changes Princess Loki back and readies a new spell::

CARSONTHONITIUM!

::Turns Carson's printer into a confused hobbit::

Uh, I gotta go. See Demon about that deck.

::runs away::

Serall, you're getting your butt kicked later for the smurf thing.

I should check with Demon. I want my glaive AND cards back.

Dang...Loki chan, if you had only remained a Smurf a few more minutes, you could have snuck in among the lot of them, totally unnoticed, and SLAUGHTERED THEM ALL!!! Then the world would have been happily bereft of Smurfs!! mwahahaha!! :evil:

Ahem...

Sorry. My Inner Assassin (TM) took over for a moment, there. (^.^);;

**begins to sing, to take everyone's attention away from his Assassin Moment (TM)**
Rubber ducky, you're the one...you make bathtime lots of fun...rubber ducky, I'm awfully fond of you...boop-oop-ee-doop!
**stops singing, before anyone has a chance to whack him on the head with something heavy**

I put it here since these forums don't have a general type chat and this seems to be the closest comic to a Romanic comic. I was trying to see if I could get females to join the Unpaired Female List since it is like 2 unpaired females to 8 unpaired males.

You're so cute, Kai. ::pats him on the head::

But if I was changed into a Smurf, I would have been another Smurfette, which would have put off the delicate balance of Smurfettes, and the Smurfs would have ceased to exist due to this imbalance. At least I think so...

He IS cute, isn't he? *pets Kai*

Loki, as I recall, Smurfette was actually not a natural-born (if Smurfs are born, that is) creature, but was in reality created by the evil wizard Gargamel (sp?) as a lure to catch the real Smurfs. They rescued her and brought her home to their village, and she became the one and only female. Then later there was Baby Smurf, but they never really explained where he came from. My guess is Papa Smurf was gettin' smurfed by Smurfette...which is just weird and creepy on so very many levels. SOOO...I'm not sure if you becoming another female Smurf would have done anything other than add to Papa Smurf's harem. Which of course you would never stand for, thus bringing about the genocide of all Smurfdom.

If you're so interested in slaughtering Smurfs Kai, I believe I can be of assistance. BOM BOM BADIL-COUGH!

::Turns Kaichi into a pink and purple polka dotted Ent::

...Okay now that's just messed up even for me. Wait, didn't I wanna stay away for some reason?

Smurfette was originally black haired after she was created by Gargamel. When she wanted to be free of his evil, the spell Papa Smurf used to cure her of the curse turned her hair to blond.
Baby smurfs are "born" once in a blue moon, brought in by a stork. The particular episode where Baby smurf was introduced, there was a mistake. It's been too long now, and can't remember what the mistake was, but basically Baby Smurf had to go back. Grouchy Smurf, who had taken a liking to Baby Smurf, refused to let him go, and kept baby smurf hidden until the stork eventually gave up. I believe Papa smurf used his magic to create another blue moon so the Baby could stay.
The smurf children were older smurfs who accidentally walked into father times clock while he was away and got zapped back to kids. By the time he got back, it was too late to undo the zapping.
I'm not sure where Sassette Smurf (the little girl smurf) came from. I have vague recollections of her being a creation similar to that of Smurfette, and being really mean and playing jokes on the other smurfs until Smurfette convinced her to be good and let Papa smurf use the same spell he had helped her with before.
