Straight Dope Sig Admiration Thread

My favorite sigs these days belong to Anthracite and Tommy the Cat.
Dark Queen of the Unholy Lesbian Vampire Army of
the Night, Grande Dame of Straight Dope Lesbian

Her sig just makes her sound cool and mysterious. It makes me want to know more about her, so in turn I try and read what she posts, even if the topic doesn’t seem to interest me.
Tommy the Cat’s:
I’ve got $240 worth of puddin’. The instructions
say “Cook and then chill.” and that’s what I do
every night. I cook, then I chill. Awwww-yeah.

Tommy’s makes me laugh every time I see it. I’m not kidding. Every freaking time.
I know there are others I like, but these two are the ones that stick out most to me.

The sig belonging to Esprix - “Evidently, I rock”
You certainly do, sir.

Dammit, wish I had that one first.

I like mine.

And from what lurkernomore said,the first part DEFINATELY fits me.

The second part just makes me smile.

Mine is great. You can’t beat a Jim Morrison quote.

Also, for sheer simplicity and poignance, Montfort’s is great.

And last, but not least, Diane’s sig rings true, in my opinion. :slight_smile:

I can’t remember who’s it is, but the one that says something like:

[sub]The instructions say “Cook and chill” so that’s what i do, every night. I cook, then i chill. Awwwwww yeah.[/sub]

I don’t know why, but this one just tickles me. I imagine it’s from a film although I couldn’t tell you which one.


I always liked the way Satan signed off with “Yer pal, Satan”.

Airman – like you sig, especially since my entire life began on that date.

I hate sigs, but I always liked one of the first I noticed after I started hanging around here:

“I certainly hope Life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it.”

No idea whose it is.

I happen to like mine alot, it’s a haiku from Wayne’s World - How Do Girls Pee? They never showed us in health class. Splash.

I dunno why but it cracks me up.

Fran, check out the OP - it’s Tommy the Cat’s. He said elsewhere that it IS from a movie or TV, but I’ve forgotten what.

My favorite, and one I’d LOVE to be able to steal, is the one that says something along the lines of “Oh, wait - these ARE the droids you’re looking for!” I don’t even know if the person is still using it, but I say it all the time now.

Then there’s Jack Batty’s - “Caution: Cape does not enable user to fly.”

I second the notion on Jack Batty. That makes me laugh every time I see it.

Wow, thanks. I didn’t know it was so popular.

I found it on a site of interesting quotes. It was listed as appearing on a Superhero Costume Kit. I thought it worked on just so many darned levels.

I get a kick out of Rasa’s, “This post brought to you by the letter K.”

I don’t know why I find that funny, but I do.

It’s from the now-defunct TV show The State. Great line.

I am so ashamed i didn’t look at the OP properly and humbly apologise. But i still love that sig.


I like Crunchy Frog’s…at least the part I gave him.:slight_smile:

Wally was so good at sigs, people begged him to make 'em up for them. Any “Genuine Wallified Sig” was awesome.

Also, I’m thinking that Neuro-Trash Grrl is still the reigning champ when it comes to cool sigs. Ever since she dropped the “Heck is where you go when you don’t believe in Gosh” bomb, her sigs have rocked. Too bad she hain’t been seen in nary a dogs age.
Or something.

Thanks for reminding me! Isn’t it Ayesha who has the Wallified Sig “Ayesha can bend minds with her spoon!” or something like that?

Yeah. It’s Ayesha whose Genuine Wallified Sig is “Ayesha, who can bend minds with her spoon.”

That one rocks.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

No, it’s just a wild stab in the dark.

Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It’s a shark riding on an elephant’s back, just trampling and eating everything they see.

A lot of the ones that have been mentioned are ones I chuckle seeing, but I gotta tell you, I like mine, it works for me. The top part is fixed and hasn’t and won’t change. The bottom half, that’s what I change on a whim.
