He muddles the issues with verbosity!

Mild mannered tw, in his one-track goal to convince the general public that W is an incompetent asshole, fights for truth? Justice? The American Way? Who can tell???!!!

Take a bow, Elspode.

Gee...I don't know what to say. Strangely, I live my life by that principle. As an imperfect specimen myself (let's face it, I'm not even on the same conceptual *continent* as Perfect), I have long known that inside is more important than outside.

Welcome to the Hall of Fame, headsplice.

This excerpt of headsplice's post comes with a *lot* of context. This is an excellent discussion, but his remark stands out because it's so true and so eloquent.

Flint - it's nice if you post a link, so that those of us who don't read the whole board all the time can see the context.

I *think* that's from the "if you outlaw guns" thread, but I'm not sure.

It is from the "if you outlaw guns, ..." thread. And the post by Urbane Guerrilla that prompted BigV's post was so incredibly condescending that UG deserves whatever abuse he gets.

I thought it was funny regardless of the context (like "who got PWNED" or whatever...)

I submit Lumberjim to the Hall of Fame not on the basis of any post in particular but as a Lifetime Achievement Award for providing the Cellar with an as-yet never-ending stream of creative, fun and sometimes provocative ideas that have made the Cellar a better place.

LJ belongs in the Cellar Hall of Fame.

Cock!
