    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?

      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 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.

    HP HQ: "Ah, I think I got it now. So the bloke in the hat on the far right screen is married to the sister of the girl with the bow in her hair, who may or may not be related to the guy who thinks he's a swan, right?"

        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.
