Favorite Doper Signatures

I’m sure this has been done before, but I figure that, like the “What does your username mean?” threads and similar topics, it doesn’t hurt to revisit the issue from time to time.

So, what’s your favorite Doper signature? CalMeacham, I’m calling you out – your Watchmen reference cracks me up every time I have the fortune of running across it. :slight_smile:


I hate the signature idea. It’s like so much spam on every thread. Just more stuff to catch your attention that is not what you came to read.

Bosda and rjung both have sigs I like. Both just a little…strange.

Mine’s an anagram for “may the force be with you”.

I think it belongs to The Chao goes Mu (my apologies if I butchered the username).

The sig is

There is no theory of evolution. Evolution is a fact. The theory is of how it happened.

I absolutely love it.

My favorite is Daithi Lacha’s, both the current one and the previous one. Current: “If I cannot earn your respect, please allow me to purchase it from you.” Previous: “My name is Daithi Lacha, millionaire; I own a mansion and a yacht.” For some reason the fact that they’re in small font size makes 'em even more amusing. I really can’t explain why I feel the way I do, it’s totally irrational!

CandidGamera’s, without a doubt. There are a lot of great sigs here, but how can you beat a song about a giant flying turtle, set to the tune of “The Major-General’s Song”? :smiley:

“I am the very model of the modern kaiju Gamera / I’ve a shell that’s indestructible and endless turtle stamina. / I defend the little kids/ and I level downtown Tokyo/ in a giant free-for-all mega-kaiju rodeo.”

Someone around here took “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!” and extended it to ridiculous lengths while maintaining the palindromnity of the original. I love it. Anyone know who it is?

And mine’s awfully dull. :frowning:

Dante used to have a brilliant one, but I did a search and all his old posts now come with the new sig line. :frowning:

Dante, if you’re ever doing a vanity search NOW is the time mate. C’mere and tell us about how you got your first bicycle. :smiley:

That would be Malacandra.

Thank you.


Thank ou, Asimovian. You do know that I change my sig regularly, don’t you? I view it as a neat way to try out weird one-liners.
Malacandra’s sig is neat, but I think not original with Mal. I’ve seen such extensions of that original short palindrome elsewhere, although I couldn’t swear that Mal’s is the same as those.
I think we need more sig lines. Just keep 'em short.

Ahh, yes.


Hal Briston’s always makes me smile because it brings to mind one of my favorite threads.

Aww. Thanks! I like altering the lyrics to popular tunes.

I’ve always been fascinated by internet-sigs, and we have a good batch around here.


No, it’s not original. I saw it on these very boards once upon a time, and thought it deserved to be resurrected. One of these days I’ll come up with something original, but don’t hold your breath unless you want to look like this → :eek:

No criticism implied, Mal – I think it’s a great sig. I’ve never been able to come up with a palindrome of any length that didn’t sound contrived and moronic, myself.

Actually, it was a quote by Emo Phillips. “When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized that the Lord, in his wisdom, didn’t work that way. So I just stole one and asked him to forgive me.”
