You should be able to view it again, but Masako had to shut off the comments at…


She had to delete one spam comment to get it viewable again (link).

Please, let’s hear a big round of applause for all of you who posted in the Mega-Post and kept it alive for a year and four months. Please use this comment thread to post your fondest memories of the post with the most…

    I think she’s cute, but does that qualify as art? She does have good teeth…

  2. Steve G. says:

    And an unexpected jump!

    The countdown to 6000 begins!

  3. Nxxx says:

    Is that the age your wife will reach? Makes that old guy in the Bible seem a teenager.

  4. Ace Deuce says:

    Is it too early

  5. Ace Deuce says:

    to start stacking?

    She’s timeless, not Yoda.

  11. Nxxx says:

    Why not buy her a watch if you can’t afford an iPhone?

  12. Ace Deuce says:

    After seeing Mr. Moltz in the YouTube coverage of the Macworld panel he was on, I find myself wondering who his hair stylist is. Maybe I should switch from Great Clips to something more avant garde.

  13. Steve G. says:

    Nxxx, Ah, but we do have iPhones. However, they are on the “lovely” U.S.-only CDMA network of Verizon. So, no swapping out the SIM cards.

    Ace, there always is the popular “suck kut

  14. Nxxx says:

    Help. Was watching SuperBowl XLVii and heard a referee/umpire call two penalties that cancelled each other out, both called Unnecessary roughness.

    Please define unnecessary roughness and does this rule apply to Fifty Shades of Grey?

  15. Ace Deuce says:

    Unnecessary roughness might be any roughness that doesn’t necessarily add to the sales of your sensational book.

  16. Steve G. says:

    Nxxx, unnecessary roughness may be welcome with those shades of gray. But I don’t think it would improve the gawdawful prose (from what I’ve heard). Wouldn’t get near that drivel.

    In American football, the guy with the white hat is the referee. The other officials all have different titles, but not the little P.A. microphone thingie.

    And you know that something bad happened when they throw a flag and their hat.

  17. Brother Mugga says:

    I like that the Superbowl now goes on so long they try to simulate the ‘day/night’ aspect of proceedings by turning off the floods halfway through. Now *that’s* entertainment.

  18. Nxxx says:

    Can you imagine anyone in the Coliseum, whilst the gladiators were at it, throwing a flag and their hat in the arena and stopping play?

    Just as likely during the Christians versus Lions, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals would turn up and charge the Christians with unnecessary cruelty by running away.

  19. Ace Deuce says:

    Feeding the cats. One person’s chore is another person’s entertainment.

  20. Steve G. says:

    BroMu – Wait until next year, when the Super Bowl is played outdoors, near New York City. I wonder how many people would be willing to spend a lot of money to nearly freeze to death.

    Nxxx – Maybe throwing a flag and a hat would distract the lions. They won’t let me try that at the zoo.

  21. Brother Mugga says:

    Steve, are you familiar with the sartorial selections of supporters at Newcastle football club at all? A quick google may prove enlightening.

  22. Nxxx says:

    Noocastle fans are usually on an anaesthetic know locally as “Broon”.

  23. Steve G. says:

    How are the jails in London? (No, this isn’t some womens’ prison fantasy thing.) The missus is small and doesn’t like to be touched.

  24. Nxxx says:

    Read Dickens.
    The only change is the modern one out near Woolwich, where the really naughty boys are kept. Makes Guantanamo seem like a holiday camp.

  25. Brother Mugga says:

    A mate of mine works in Belmarsh.


    It’s given him a very optimistic view of human nature.

    Not unlike hanging round the MegaPost.

    Only with slightly fewer stabbings with makeshift ‘shivs’.

    Belmarsh, I mean.

  26. Ace Deuce says:

    Because in the tunnels we have many opportunities to STAB BATS.

    Thank you. I’ll be going now.

  27. Steve G. says:

    Nxxx, I take it from your comment that the prison conditions haven’t improved from Dickens’ time.

    I’m going to have to advise her again to mind her manners, hand gestures, and potentially offensive jokes to Aussie barkeeps.

  28. Nxxx says:

    Whilst we lecture you about gun laws, most of us carry a lance and shield when popping down the road on our horses and donkeys, that is those that have not been served up as beef in our kebebs and burgers, to Walmart, branded ASDA over here.

    Despite this, remember that our hard man Ross Kemp, had his then wife, Rupe Murdoch’s flame haired favourite, Rebeka, held overnight in a police station as she was beating him. Following Thatcher, we are all wary of females.

  29. Brother Mugga says:

    My Lance has been banned from ‘popping down the road’ now.

    Certainly competitively.

    And most assuredly when ‘on the horse’.

  30. Steve G. says:

    Where can one acquire a lance locally? (You can’t even give our Lance away.)

    I am inquiring because I believe that they will not let the missus board an airplane carrying one.

  31. Brother Mugga says:

    Wrap it up like a present, Steve. Tell them it’s an extra-large SwingBall.

    That should fool ’em.

    Like Arnie’s shotgun bouquet in Terminator II.

  32. Nxxx says:

    Has your misses landed yet?
    Only ask as the BBC journalists were on strike yesterday.

  33. Steve G. says:


    Whilst she would appreciate the press coverage (minus the phone hacking), she does not grace your shores until late March. Plenty of time to hide the good silver.

  34. Brother Mugga says:

    We don’t have silver. What’s her stance of stainless steel and pyrex?

  35. Steve G. says:

    Can she fit it in her large handbag? If so, then it might walk away.

  36. Brother Mugga says:

    I reckon so. And if not, my wife’s got a big handbag she can loot to loot the rest?

  37. Steve G. says:

    I don’t know. My wife is very particular about her handbags.

  38. Nxxx says:

    We are very lucky over here, many handbags by GG, burgers as well.

  39. Ace Deuce says:

    While I have been avidly following the discussion (I am a long-time student of looting), I must apologize for not contributing. The reason is that my writing staff is on strike, purportedly because offering each a first aid kit and a toothbrush doesn’t meet their expectations for health care benefits. Once I get the disagreement sorted out, I may again be able to add something to the proceedings.

  40. Nxxx says:

    If you are submitting self written prose rather than your staff composed items, that makes you a blackleg in union terms.

    Which of your lower members is it, the left or right?

  41. Ace Deuce says:

    We prefer the term “scab.”

    Left and right.

  42. Brother Mugga says:

    You have a scab on your ‘lower member’?

    Surely that’ll need more than a first aid kit and a toothbrush straight off?

  43. Ace Deuce says:

    Don’t worry, I have a nurse on it right now.

  44. Brother Mugga says:

    Not a transfer from Silent Hill though?

    I’m not sure how they run things over there, but I was extremely dissatisfied with the attitude of the one I had from that neck of the woods.

    Only gave her two stars on my feedback form.

  45. Nxxx says:

    Having lost our Triple A economic status and the pound being at its lowest against the dollar for two years, your wife would be an extremely attractive proposition for one of our gigolos.

  46. Steve G. says:

    Before I get myself into trouble (like if she happens to be reading over my shoulder), I’m going to decline further participation in this line of the discussion. I’ll join back in a bit, or when I think of an interesting non-sequitur.

  47. Nxxx says:

    Happt St David’s Day.

  48. It’s very simple to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this post at this web site.

  49. Brother Mugga says:

    Now that’s how to do a non-sequiter, Steve.

  50. Nxxx says:

    Are Non Sequiters things you don’t trim the hedge with?
