The crazy comes out around quarter deadline time. OK, and around results time, too. Once in a blue moon, the stars align and results time intersects with deadline time...

And boy is the clean-up a right PITA when that happens!

Oh, and Martin? I'm sure those T-rex bite marks will buff right out.

Oh dear God, it can't be true. wotf005 I can't possibly be so guilty of helping to keep this thread alive! It must have been that wretched alligator and all her blatherings.

Wasn't me.

It must have been.

Nope.

Rats.

Where? wotf006

No, no, go back to sleep scaly chops.

Okay! wotf006 After I've had another go at killing this thread.

Death roll. Death roll. Death roll. Death roll. Death roll. Death roll.Death roll. Death roll. Death roll.


Give it up, Gator, you're not going to win this one.

Got to win. I always win! wotf016

Not too bad.

Is this a competition? Since the thread's undead, we could just keep going, and going, and going...

What's really scary, of course, is that the bulk of most of our posts came when the thread was honest-to-whatever active.

Wait... Kitty has her own account? Are you sure we want to encourage accounts for the voices in our heads?

Do I detect fear in Martin's words? Afraid of Evil M getting any ideas?

And I believe Kitty has been rampaging free for a while now. I'm just glad she's not knocking on any of our doors! Better she spend her time here, don't you think?

I'll add some mice to the room, marshmallows, whatever she wants. Just keep her away from me!

Yes, I noticed Kitty has her own account. I must admit a thrill of fear went through me when I saw that. Musn't let the Gator see... Mustn't let the Gator see... Mustn't let the Gator see... wotf005

Though sometimes I wish she'd get her own Facebook account instead of just hijacking mine, at least here she has the decency to write in green ink. wotf012
