If the Geico rhetorical guy worked for the SDMB.....

Have the Straight Dope Message Boards really been fighting ignorance since 1999?

Do the Mods wear jackboots?

Cut to the song “42nd Street,” a screen shot of a theatre curtain, and the sound of tapping feet. As the curtain is raised, the tapping fee are seen, all wearing jackboots. The curtain goes higher, revealing the legs are naked except for the boots. The curtain stops at the knees.

Voiceover: The Straight Dope Message Boards. Fighting ignorance since 1999. (It’s taking longer than we thought.)
