Aw Snap!! We missed a big anniversary!


I have an excuse I was ailing and going into surgery.
The rest of you dipsticks just plain forgot.

The Dope has turned 21!!

It and the lil'wrekker are the same age. Just thought I'd add that ()


Thanks: Cecil Adams, it all started with you and lil'Ed.

Love you much! ()

So what do you want us to do? Buy the Dope a drink?

The only proper drink would be a Mickey Finn.

In honor of the current times, I'd buy the Dope a Corona.

According to the banner at the top of the page, the Dope turns 47 this year, not 21 (specifically, it did so on Feb. 2).

Aye; I think that it's the SDMB which has recently turned 21.

Only the current iteration of it. It incubated on AOL since 1997 which makes it more like 23.

So it "incubated" for two years?

Does that make the board an elephant?

All you 99ers have been here 21 years. That's amazing.
I feel honored to be amongst you all.

Love this place.

Getting the elephant pregnant was the difficult part.

I was thinking something more along the line of insectile lifeforms that do the chrysalis thing and emerge in a different form after being larvae.

If the SDMB was based in Alberta, it could have celebrated with a drink in March, 2017.

(The drinking age here in Alberta is 18.)
