Don't Bump This Thread!
 
Just let it die.

blob 09-05-2018 11:51 PM

Why?

running coach 09-06-2018 05:50 AM

Probably gunning for shortest thread. Doesn't realize there are plenty of threads with no replies so a tie is the best to be hoped for.

The actual shortest thread is one that is never started. Plenty of those, too.

Don't think about an elephant!

Annie-Xmas 09-06-2018 08:50 AM

I got an elephant's memory. So I'll always remember not to bump this thread.

D'OH!

Beckdawrek 09-06-2018 09:22 AM

Aw! Peanuts!

Is there anything worse than the sound of a thread dying?

Yes. The Bee-Gees stayin' alive.

Nonsuch 09-06-2018 09:48 AM

I've killed many a thread in my day. I expect this will be no different.

There.

Now watch as some smartass mod comes along and says something like "if you have a problem with this thread being bumped, I can keep that from happening" - right before they lock it.

Just a matter of time, really. Remember - I called that.

Prof. Pepperwinkle 09-06-2018 12:37 PM

Ah, but WHAT did you call it? Bob? Marie? Late for dinner?

backsidejohnny 09-06-2018 12:45 PM

Why must EVERYTHING be a CONTEST?

kayaker 09-06-2018 12:46 PM

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!

Prof. Pepperwinkle 09-06-2018 12:58 PM

Well, let's kick it up a notch!

OMG, nooooooooo!

That guy freaks me out. He visits cool places, they cook their stuff, and then he takes these huge-ass bites, stuffing more into his mouth than should be able to fit.

The Stainless Steel Rat 09-06-2018 02:16 PM

This is a thread I will not bump.
I will not bump it.
I will not thump it.
I will not pump it.
I won't even Trump it.


*But I might give it a nudge*

Nonsuch 09-06-2018 02:53 PM

My butt itches. I think I'll bump this thread.

Alpha Twit 09-06-2018 03:04 PM

I feel the bump!

Beckdawrek 09-06-2018 04:20 PM

I bumped my head.

campp 09-06-2018 04:42 PM

My cat bumped my head as I read this.

Spoons 09-06-2018 05:09 PM

I will not bump this silly thread,
I will not bump it, Fred-I-said.
I will not bump it here or there,
I will not bump it anywhere.
I will not bump this silly thread,
I will not bump it, Fred-I-said.

Beckdawrek 09-06-2018 07:18 PM

I am calling Dr. Pimple Popper for this bump.

snfaulkner 09-06-2018 07:23 PM

I usually don't do bumps of threads. Just bumps of the blowcaines.

blob 09-06-2018 08:06 PM

Ain't gonna bump no more

By Vangie Beal

In online forums and other online discussion spaces bump is the word used to describe an action (e.g. a message post) so that a particular thread is returned to the top in the list of threads. Some users may even post a message with only the word "bump" to indicate they are posting only to bump the thread to the top of the list where more users will see it.

Beckdawrek 09-06-2018 11:04 PM

Bumped up my knowledge of MBs.
Thanks so much!

Mumberthax 09-06-2018 11:29 PM

Whoomp; there it is.

Spoons 09-07-2018 05:14 AM

Back in the 1970s disco era, there was a dance called "The Bump." Did anybody (other than me) dance it?

Don't trip over anything, remember what happened last time!

What this thread needs is some bumper music.

Biotop 09-07-2018 10:50 AM

Poison ivy bumps (with pus)

burpo the wonder mutt 09-07-2018 11:17 AM

Is it OK if I burp this thread?

*burp*

Must be a barge coming through.

Mumberthax 09-07-2018 11:23 AM

Bump.
