    Caption this pic. Caption must start with "HP HQ...", or some variance thereof. Text can be above or below the image. Or both; if both, then only one of the lines need be "HP HQ...", etc.

      HP HQ frantically tried to stop the forums developing sentience - It was a hopeless task, and like Oroboros, they would consume themselves whole.

      HP HQ How can I help you?
      Hubber Caller #5 How can this "aunty" Hub http://markewbie.hubpages.com/hub/My-Hot-Aunty remain published while you idle my quality Hub about the intricacies of comma usage in run-on sentences that include overly verbose language to an extent that they are entirely incomprehensible? The topic could trend anytime!
      HP HQ Wait, what?

      HP HQ How can I help you?
      Hubber Caller #6 Traffic on my most regularly viewed Hub dropped 60% in one day! Fix everything so Google doesn't punish me further for your mistakes.
      HP HQ Are you referring to your Hub, How to Dial a Rotary Telephone Using Only your Index Finger?
      Hubber Caller #6 That's the one.
      HP HQ No problem; Let me have Paul E. compose a Hub addressed to Google to see if that will get your Hub's views back up to 5 a day from 2.

      HP HQ How can I help you?
      Hubber Caller #7 When I click 'publish' nothing happens.

      guy on the left - "I love how HP lets us set our own hours." 
      guy on the right - "Yeah, the Pauls' are gone, Simone is on vacation.  Nice."
      guy on the left - "Let's turn on Jaws and sit back and troll the forums."
      guy on the right - "Dude, look who started a bash HP thread."



      Love some of these posts.  The Simone drawing is lol funny.

        We will all get through this and survive. I'm feeling optimistic these days. If there is a better HP out there than HP, I'd sure like to hear about it. I've checked and I certainly haven't found any.
