I like it.
Don’t mind it when it’s done properly.
A while back I was gonna do a thread called “Doper Jokes” in which traditional jokes were given a doper twist. But the only one I could think of to prime the pump was:
How many Dopers does it take to change a light bulb?
- One to hold the ladder.
- One to screw in the bulb.
- One to say Hi to Opal.
As you can see, I foud this so inspiring, I never started the thread.
- Never used it.
- Never will.
Darwin’s Finch, you bastard!!
Hi Opal can lick my… oh wait that doesn’t sound right.
The mere fact that it is so hated gives it a certain cachet.
No one liked mine in this thread:
Heartily concur with Uncle. Please let it die.
- Started to use it a few times, but saw how ridiculous it looked.
- Didn’t go there.
- Was funny a couple times to the few people who happened read the thread were she complained about lists.
- And that’s fucking it.
For some reason this reminds me of an exchange on the message board of a site that was blatantly stealing content from SDMB:
sorry- it got cut off. it continued:
Now you know the real meaning behind “Hi, Opal”. Please refrain from using it lest you give aid and comfort to our enemies.
Once again I will champion the cause of “Axe-wielding baboon on the loose” for random insertion into lists.
(Or maybe it’s just the DayQuil talking)
I use “Hi, Opal!” but not by itself.
- Ugh let it die already.
For some reason, I found it hilarious until its origins were explained to me.
I never used it myself, though.
