LONG LIVE THE MEGA-POST!

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…

    How will he tell? As similarly remarked in a New York Hotel last century.

  2. Ace Deuce says:

    The absence of respiration, perspiration, or inspiration ought to be a clue that we have croaked.

  3. Nxxx says:

    Not according to Dot Parker.

  4. Brother Mugga says:

    You would have further thought that the absence of a single creative spark in any of the most recent 5000 or so posts would have indicated that we are most likely spambots that have somehow got jammed in the system. But yet we soldier on. Even though I have no idea what the preceding words mean or, indeed, how I typed them.

  5. Steve G. says:

    Friends and Cousins,

    If you are the type who is on the Twitter, you may have noticed that our gracious host, Mr. Moltz, is posting there under the CARS account. And there was a comment that this here site might be “continued,” but on the Twitter. That might make it more difficult to sustain extended and heavily digressive comment threads such as this one.

  6. Ace Deuce says:

    I am not on the Twitter. I have never tweeted. I was told that one must be a twit to participate. I will look at the Moltz feed and see this thing you speak of.

  7. Brother Mugga says:

    What is this ‘Twitter’ of which you speak? It sounds marvellous! Doubtless it has provided a vehicle for the meeting of great minds, wherein all the goodness and virtue of humankind is writ large across the firmament of the interweb?

    God bless us, everyone!

  8. Steve G. says:

    Alas, I don’t think anyone has figured out how to deliver figgy pudding over Twitter (a cousin to pudding over IP).

  9. Brother Mugga says:

    But what about piggy fudding? Or will that just take the thread back to Trumpton?

  10. Steve G. says:

    Don’t be getting all pissy about it.

  11. Ace Deuce says:

    Was Twitter the start of the downfall of civilization in the 21st century, or was it something else.

    Sorry to have to ask, but I “can’t see the forest for the trees.”

  12. Brother Mugga says:

    I was clearly tempted to change the apposite vowel in your quote, Steve. But I’m far too mature and all that stuff now.

    I blame watching too much Louis CK.

    In other news, I’ve just worked out it’s 2017 through the simple expedient of having to go analogue and write a cheque. As in 2017. How did that happen? I’ve gone from confused to slightly depressed in about three seconds.

  13. Nxxx says:

    BroMu,
    What’s wrong with Grounhog Day?

    In my case it is 1940 and I can assure you it is no fun being bombed out every night.

  14. Brother Mugga says:

    My brother’s 52 and still bombed out every night, Nxxx.

    But he’s also a merchant banker, so . . .

  15. Ace Deuce says:

    If I am doomed to repeat a particular day till I get it right, I hope it is the day when,as a child, I nearly emptied the supermarket candy dispenser with just one penny, simply by wiggling the handle a certain way. Alas, the last handful of Mike & Ikes escaped me.

  16. Nxxx says:

    As we now have “Alternative Facts” joining “Post Truths”, is it PC to say “Windows 10 rules”?

  17. Steve G. says:

    Only if they bring back the skinny guy and the fat guy. And I’m not talking about those movie reviewers.

  18. Brother Mugga says:

    If Ace had got that last handful, he could have been the Fat Guy.

    But now I’ve pipped him.

  19. Nxxx says:

    With Apple possibly moving production to India, will this mean curry over ip?

  20. Ace Deuce says:

    I would expect a Bollywood content deal first, with popcorn over IP for the US market.

  21. Brother Mugga says:

    But will the curry be blocked from entering the US, we wonder? Or maybe they’ve FOUND OUR TUNNEL!

    My god, it’s full of phaals!

  22. Steve G. says:

    If Del were around, we could ask about the settings on her Critters. Or at least if they can be trained on who to let through the tunnels.

  23. Ace Deuce says:

    Someone ought to tell Mexico that it’s not necessary for them to build a tunnel to circumvent Trump’s proposed wall. We already have several tunnels down that way. We merely need to build a toll booth for each one, and then we’re in business.

  24. Brother Mugga says:

    I’ve always wanted to be in a start-up. It seems so hip. Let’s do it, talk the tunnels up (or should that be down?), then sell them to Google at a massively inflated rate.

    We should probably forego the classic ‘start-up group shot’ photo, though. No one needs to see that.

  25. Steve G. says:

    Plus, that would mean we’d all need to be in one place at the same time. That much easier for “them” to take us all out. Or for the singularity to occur. I’m a bit on the fence on how that would play out…

  26. Nxxx says:

    Should John Moltz be in on the deal or is he rich enough already?

  27. Brother Mugga says:

    We’d certainly have to make sure it was nowhere near a grassy knoll, Steve. And Our Risen Lord Moltz would presumably have to be photoshopped in. Like with Jesus in that Last Supper thing. Like they said in The Da Vinci Code.

  28. Ace Deuce says:

    I envision the group photo as more in the line of a Sgt. Pepper’s album cover. Scissors and paste should do the trick.

  29. Brother Mugga says:

    Presumably that’s just for my 23 M ‘Split’ Shyamalan personalities?

    Somewhat anti-climatically they’re all minor variations on ‘Fat Loser’.

    Except the big revelation 24th one what gets ‘unleashed’.

    Which turns out to be ‘Rillyrilly Fat Loser’.

  30. Ace Deuce says:

    Not to get too far off topic here at Crazy Apple Rumors Site, but what’s the craziest Apple rumor you have heard lately?

  31. Steve G. says:

    iPhone with only one button! Oh, no, wait. That was done already.

    iPhone with no buttons!

    The Apple campus will be open in April. And some parts open to the public. Which, as the sage Yogi Berra once said: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”

  32. Ace Deuce says:

    Steve, as you just today posted comment number 7,500 here at the Giga-Post, I hereby present you with this check for 7,500 quatloos: [-Q7500-]

    I don’t know the current exchange rate, but I believe that you can now afford to get that operation you have been putting off.

  33. Nxxx says:

    Have scalpel and will travel.

  34. Steve G. says:

    Then it’s a good thing I’m moving soon…

  35. Brother Mugga says:

    The thought of Steve’s operation is certainly putting me off.

  36. Ace Deuce says:

    I heard that Apple has had some quality problems with the iPhone 6, and I’d like to get on board with a class-action lawsuit. Unfortunately I have an iPhone 5. Can anyone spare an iPhone 6? I will be happy to split my takings with the benefactor.

  37. Brother Mugga says:

    Can you stick an iPhone 4 onto an iPhone 5 to make an iPhone 9? At the rate I’m stuffing chocolate I can’t think I’ll last too long and I want to See The Future.

  38. Nxxx says:

    Father, I have sinned and need to confess.

    Yesterday I held a two hour computer session at my Sheltered Housing Unit, using refurbished Council, can I say it?????, Dell Windows 7 Professional laptops. Spent the night in a sulphuric acid bath. Am I still allowed to post here from my Mac Mini olease? Weep. Weep. Cry. Real misery.

  39. Ace Deuce says:

    If I understand the CARS End User Agreement, you are allowed to post here as long as you use a Mac or iPhone at least 51 percent of the time. I sometimes post from my workplace, where we are forced to use a Dell running Windows 7. A simple hand sanitizer seems to keep the cooties off.

  40. Brother Mugga says:

    I keep a heap of floppies with Windows ME installed on them next to the bog. Just in case I feel the need to cleanse.

  41. Steve G. says:

    Cleanse the bog? Is that some British slang?

  42. Brother Mugga says:

    Most of our vocabulary is slang, Steve. And almost all of it smutty. It’s our gift to the world, really. Well, that and Piers Morgan. You’re welcome.

  43. Steve G. says:

    One of Penn & Teller’s best tricks was making Jonathan Ross disappear…

  44. Ace Deuce says:

    I once saw Penn and Teller’s act in Las Vegas, and after it ended, the whole audience disappeared. I’m still scratching my head over that one.

  45. Nxxx says:

    Surely the disappearing act of the 21st century was the bank crash.

  46. Brother Mugga says:

    I once saw Jonathan Ross’s act and, doubtless along with the rest of the audience, wish I’d disappeared.

  47. Steve G. says:

    Nxxx, I think you meant to say “American democracy.”

    And if GCHQ is listening in, don’t you have anything better to do?

  48. Nxxx says:

    Steve.
    The only intelligence in Cheltenham, is in the Ladies College Staff Room.

  49. Ace Deuce says:

    I think I met Intelligence once, along with her sisters Prudence, Chastity, and Audacity.
