                I think that cat is more of an existential nihilist rather than a mere existentialist though.

      Randy Godwinposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yep, some of us aren't immune to being banned like others, WA.  Now we can't use animated smilies or any emoticon with a live link.  This is one reason the forums look so boring.  It appears HP doesn't want folks having fun on the forums when they could be writing more hubs.  lol

      Seriously, we used to have some great--as well as fun-- discussions before the latest hall monitors were appointed.  It's best to go to other forums if you want to have some fun unless you're a greeter.  yikes

        Randy, haven't you ever met a naughty hall monitor before? That was me. In Jamaica we call it the class monitor and I had a teacher called me the class clown. Can you imagine a monitor being a class clown?

    You're right....it's a real drag these days.

          I think we need some drunk posters and some alter-egos who argue with themselves..  They've often been the ones to liven things up.  smile  Coffee-drinking posters aren't fun.  They're (we're) just all hyped on up on coffee and looking for serious issues and traffic matters to discuss.

    You're right. Even the Sandpit has gotten stagnant, with the same handful of hubbers, and very few new threads. I was thinking of reviving the 'Abbreviations' thread (they were actually acronyms). But with so few people in attendance, it may not be worth it. sad

    Limericks to fit the present forum mood?


    A fly and a flea in a flue
    Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
    Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
    "Let us fly!", said the flea.
    So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

    if an atom is defined as an entity with protons (positive charges) and neutrons (negative charges) then here is a joke...

    So a neutron walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a drink. The bartender brings the drink and places it in front of the neutron.  The neutron asks "How much"?  The bartender replies, "No charge for you" smile

      Here's one for you:


      A small piece of ice which lived in a test tube fell in love with a Bunsen burner.

      "Bunsen! my flame! I melt whenever I see you" said the ice.

      The Bunsen burner replied, "It's just a phase you're going through".

      No good?

      Okay, here's another:

    Two short jokes:

    Husband says; "When I'm gone you'll never find another man like me".
    Wife replied; "What makes you think I'd want another man like you!"

    When I was young I used to pray for a bike, then I realized that God doesn't work that way, so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.
