Auntie Em's Missing Coworker Part 1

Auntie Em's Missing Coworker Part 2

Why did the risotto taste and smell like vagina? - best title ever?

The Telemarketer Speaks. I Respond. - the thread that made me register

I am currently trying to track down aha's "ever shit your pants?" thread, but I'm having trouble. I am, however, coming across some classic lieu threads.

I'm sure these selections speak volumes about me.

I can't find it on Search now, and not sure of the thread title, but it was something to the effect of "I burn you dog" and had me in stitches. Anybody recall this one?

I don't know how I could possibly have missed those the first time around. Hilarious, I can't pick a favorite but I liked this line from Ka-BOOM,

. After reading that post I was amazed that he had survived into adulthood.

Although it saddened me to see that Master Wang-ka is now listed as a guest. Any chance we could get him back? I'd donate to the worthy cause.


It was a link to Scylla's Horror of Blimps in a friend's LJ that led me to the Dope.

Master Wang-Ka was a great story teller, almost on par with Scylla. This thread is one of my all time favourites:

A Nice Set Of Melons.

More of my favorites:
Are scalar weapons for real? The beginning of one of the best inside jokes on the board.

Halvsie, the two-legged dog. I still laugh until I'm in tears from this one.

Not many people know that... Right up there with the scalar weapons thread.

What about The Cooler of Death?


And the origin of the 18" DHIBJD

And the single best argument, ever, for the board's need for the edit function.

In light of a recent thread about jalapenos causing the OP's anus to burn I searched in vain for the classic "I have a serious case of wolfass"

But I did find lieu's

I never knew that was the origin of that phrase and how did that thread not make it past the first page on that phrase alone? I was here for many of these threads, how did I miss these? Someone needs to PM me when interesting things happen so I don't feel so left out.

And I wish I had missed your TMI post in the Olestra thread, scout1222. Somehow knowing what you look like in person makes it 10 times worse.

One more Master Wang-Ka story that I feel must be shared. It's post #31 in this thread, but there are some other goodies along the way.


(Wasn't he the one with the story about the attempt to cook dinner involving broken glass, aerosol cans, someone called Gorilla, IIRC, and a timer slightly the worse for wear? Yes. The specific story I'm thinking of is post #50 in this thread, but don't read just that one. Much *ahem* goodness abounds in this thread.)

Dayum! That guy is a genius. His last post was October 2006 - anybody know where he is? (To ask the whole board, would a GQ be acceptable?)

I'm going to have a freaking panic attack if someone doesn't tell me about Auntie Em's coworker. It's almost 2008 there has to be more information on this since then

The drama continues.

And continues...

...and continues...

...and continues...

...aaaaand concludes.

That last thread starts out with a summary if you don't feel like taking a week off of work to catch up.

Though it's just a few days old, I believe that justanoldvet's How to Catch a 37 Pound Salmon should be added to the pantheon of classically funny posts. Well done, Vet!

I already don't sit next to you at Dopefests.

Just kidding! As long as you're not eating anything with Olestra, we're fine. In all seriousness, I just need to scrub the image from my brain. (Look on the bright side, anyway: some guys are into that. )

One of the best trolls we ever had inspired this. Follow the links in the OP first.

This individual post slays me.

Someone's going to link to "If LOTR had been written by someone else" soon, but that's not the only time we've all convened on the same subject.

Another SDMB meme.

I just remembered another one of Scylla's classic threads: His problems when he prepares for the wrong kind of wandering herbivore.


Yes, it's like a wandering monster, but with more manure.

I know I've posted this before in similar threads, but when I need a laugh, I sometimes go back and read Would you shoot child and kill your child in this situation? (It's a lot funnier than the title might suggest, I promise.)
