Why the Forums Crashed
« on: 25 January 2011, 23:49:22 »
Oh yeah, like I'm going to tell you the real reason. [tickedoff]


Of course I am!  See, what happened was Wombat found an expired can of inferno chili in the back of a refridgerator that we'd moved to the basement a couple years ago and left unplugged since then.  Well, I don't have to describe the results as you all know the forums have been reset.

Let's just say that Hellbie will need therapy, Worktroll lost his Fosters Can-Pyramid (which was 27 levels high BTW), ACHOO is still missing, Rage has a raging case of Chungalomeningitis and Randall has been dreaming about flying battleships.

That last one may or may not be accurate.  We're still waiting for Weirdo to get the fries out of his ears.

Don't let Slade fool you.  Rumor is HE sent Wombat a picture of the said Chili and refigerator.    [tickedoff]

Some of us have been here long enough to remember several board crashes, all Wombat initiated.  ;)

Wombat's nature is chaos, destruction, larceny, mayhem, and smiling in ways that send shivers up and down the spine of anyone with even a semblance of sanity and self preservation instincts.
It's OK to disagree with me......I can't force you to be right.

If you are waiting for me to go out of my mind you will have to wait. The exits are not clearly marked.

There is a reason the BattleCorps Legion bans the carrying of hand grenades, and inferno chili from being carried by its people.

It's not a pretty one.

That's just deeply messed up.
