@bluedyn Thanks. Really, I would have done something list like at some point anyway, can't help myself. I think other goats were being blamed for more stuff. Maybe more stuff went wrong in those months. Maybe the luster is wearing off of cursing a random goat...
@studerc@JonT may just be waiting to see how long he can wait on a prize... I think he has them all lined up on his credenza in his office. But then there is the whole getting them shipped and seeing how many times they will complain.
Thinking of prizes did winners for the drinking videos come out yet? I know prizes haven't been thought of. But are there winners yet?
@lisaviolet - Gawd, the internets are crazy. So I learned that the next thing will be produce laser-etched using iron oxides and hydroxides. It'll make us long for the days of fruit stickers. If you want to collect them, you'd better start soon!
This is only moderately related: Last week someone in Chicago Craigslist posted an ADORABLE baby pygmy goat for free and I was THISCLOSE to talking husband into getting him. Qualities per the ad were: small, cuddly when he isn't being a little goat asshole, cute.
@Thumperchick So according to a certain interpretation this is totally accurate. But the the introduces the possible implication that, according to the old saying, "I don't walk the walk." And you know I'm anxious about this. Please clarify. I'm (at least potentially) okay not walking a walk as long as I know which walk it is, and perhaps why it's the walk. I just want to know how and why I'm disappointing. Well, I'm not meaning to open that can of worms, but with direct relevance to your comment.
@Thumperchick Oh shit . . . thanks for reminding me - update needed! (Although I think Abe was only part of the reason . . . and technically, I was second - I just put Abe in his own thread, @BillLehecka peppered Abe's status throughout his journal entries)
@Thumperchick In @sohmageek's defense... He did lose the goat a day early, only to get it back later. But when he was adding up the points he wasn't goat... Maybe When he's goat again he will post the winners...
You forgot that i drove almost everyone out of the blame thread (unintentionally) by posting (mostly 20th century) poetry in the thread. And the poetry was damned good stuff too.
And I posted most of my blame acceptances and apologies in haikus or limericks after a suggestion by @OldCatLady seconded by @Kidsandliz or perhaps I have it backwards concerning who suggested and who seconded.
And @jbartus wanted me to do a sonnet, but sonnets are hard to write during a red light or an elevator ride, so he never got the worst sonnet that might ever have been written. It’s still not written. Yet. Perhaps someday.
@shruggie@f00l Please a new thread for your conversation so the record thread doesn’t get too cluttered up with other stuff. This thread has mostly been just a list of who was goat and a link to why. Could we please keep it that way? Then it will be faster and easier to find who was goat…
By the way @mfladd I do think perhaps @CaptAmehrican needs brought back into the forefront as she is sailing under the radar. Read the message above this one and in some nomination threads she has gotten a fair number of votes… not to mention is guilty of instigation (grin).
@PooltoyWolf@mfladd seems to have anointed his alleged royal butt as chief cook, bottle washer and goat nominator, goat railroader, goat agitator, and goat campaigner… starting the goat nomination threads with a nominee and it then goes (from the future goat’s point of view) downhill from there. Hmm… no one died and made him king goat herder LOL. We probably should continue this conversation back in the other thread though so we don’t clutter up this goat history thread.
@Thumperchick I think it is simple enough how you are doing it. You mention the month, then who is the victim goat, then a link to why they were drafted. What messes it up is the chatter in the thread. Perhaps lock it so only you or other flask folks can update it?
@Thumperchick I like how messy this is. If you make it all neat and organized, it would be less fun. To get the information, much of the joy is in the chase. Although, considering the importance of drunk posting, it shouldn’t be insurmountably hard.
ahem… “Contrarian Talent?” Nay. Much of what I’ve learned has been from long ago when @snapster was just graduating from “back-o-the-truck” sales…and decided to try this intarwebs doohickey. If you couldn’t handle the flames on Usenet, you’d be summarily dismissed with prejudice.
@narfcake Helluva good job, kinda wish we heard from some of these folks more often.
@unixrab Good to see you here, you should come out and argue play more often.
@Thumperchick Since former goats and meh employees seem to be informally eliminated from the inexplicable pleasure of being (as if there were any rules) what is the possibility of former employees? There are several that would seem eminently qualified.
@2many2no The mercy-killing of VMP was a big driver - since I sought to inform those poor souls as to the existence of vmp-bait danger. We shall see what diabolical scheme @snapster & Co. will foist upon this community to separate us from our money. To be continued…
@therealjrn Oh, a fine thing to wake up to! I see you are well enough to pull off some devilment! You know damn good and well I have not! You just introduced me to Meh a few months ago.
Be that as it may, I am so glad you are out of the horsepital.
@therealjrn No, it is not a five star hotel. I have only been in when I had my son, but it was very memorable. I do not think I was bothered as much as you were.
I was in three days. I was just so happy, nothing bothered me. Total best time in my life, my son.
Thanks, I think it is hard not to get the flu when someone in the house does not take the necessary precautions when sick. I stay totally by myself when I am contagious.
I am not going anywhere I do not have to, we are almost at the epidemic stage here. Guess we need to wear masks and gloves.
