Elendil's Heir has a fantastic hasenpfeffer recipe that he got from his great grandma 4th removed.

snfaulkner has written an entire musical about household lint called Dust Bunnies.

And I am totally going to do the skyscraper thing.

Gyrate obtained his name when he was trying out a trick he'd heard of involving a large banana, copious amounts of olive oil, and a rotary motion, said to result in near mind destroying levels of "highly personal tension release" if you know what I mean.

He didn't realise that the cameras in the room were on and broadcasting live on the Shopping Channel.

Gyrate resigned as Boris Johnson's spin doctor due to a professional disagreement following the Brexit vote and now has a similarly lucrative role with Top Gear.

Elendil's Heir likes to yell "Touchdown!" loudly at parties and spike an orange into the onion dip.

Intergalactic Gladiator has the strangest collection of peplum statuary you'll ever encounter--all the figures have a minimum of four arms.

Intergalactic Gladiator is in fact an intergalactic gladiator. He has never lost a fight. Or won a fight. Or indeed had a fight. Or indeed had any intergalactic contact whatever.

It's the thought that counts.

The rumour you have heard to the effect that there is no substance to the scandalous rumour you have heard about Elendil's Heir is rumoured to be inaccurate.

davidm did not just do that. All that was totally like that when he got here.

Furthermore, he had nothing to do with that puddle of Marmite, the Ziggy porcelain figurines were already broken, he doesn't know where the dumptruck full of marshmallows came from and he wouldn't even begin to know how to put a thong on that elk.

Honest.

Gyrate should be applauded and admired for his valiant and ultimately effective battle to overcome dyslexia and develop into the clear writer we know today.

Back in November 2000 he was still in the grips of his disability. He doesn't like to admit his username is a misspelling of "Plastic Toy Battleship"

Slow Moving Vehicle knows about Elendil's Heir's detachable tongue because on an extremely cold day Elendil's Heir got his tongue stuck to the rear window of Slow Moving Vehicle's car, just as Slow Moving Vehicle was about to drive off. Slow Moving Vehicle heard a yelp and turned around to see a tongue stuck to his rear window. He stopped and got out, horrified at what he had done, but was very relieved when Elendil's Heir said "I' ohay, ih e'achable" and pulled his tongue off the car and re-attached it.

Princhester claims to be a prince and is a pretender to the throne of Chester, PA. which in actuality hasn't recognized royalty since the early 1700s.

davidm's dream of making it to the throne of Chester, PA. is unlikely to be realised for two reasons: the city hasn't recognized royalty since the early 1700s; and he's only second in line to the throne anyway.

Princhester once staged a musical based on The Straight Dope Messages Boards.

It failed miserably, and he sold the rights to Andrew Lloyd Webber for $1,500. ALW has made over $15 million on the idea.

Above poster is a star of extreme anal porn, and they changed their name slightly so posts here wouldn't show up when a fan Googles their performing name, "Murpo the Wonder Butt."

EmilyG's idol is Emily Bronte. She's been trying to decide whether she should call herself Emily Gronte, or Emily Grunty, after the Bronte family's original name which was Brunty.
