Celebration

Postby Henry Vilas » Tue May 01, 2007 8:32 pm

As I type this, the indefatigable Chuck_Schick is only 50 posts away from 10K (probably a lot closer by the time you read this).

So what should we do to honor him on this momentous occasion? All I can think of is, buy him a beer. Or maybe two or three.

In honor of Chuck's milestone, Jason should hit the 'reset' button on the postometer turning everyone's "total post" count back to zero.

That'd teach ya fuckers to waste so much time when you should be working.

As god as my witness, none of my 5624 posts since February 5th 2003 were done on company time.

Well, it does seem that some kind of mass gathering of the Foron Legion would be in order. The first of us across the 10k threshold!

To paraphrase some stupid shaving cream commercial I once saw:

Nerdy Guy In Lab Coat (me):

Can you describe the feeling, Chuck?

Incredibly Butch Guy in Race Car (CS):

It's pretty sweet.

*****

But it can't be at Mickey's anymore. It should really be at the King Club, since it would require an Hemauertini to appropriately toast this moment in Madison digital culture.

Wow... 10,000 posts. That's a lot of words. And in this particular case, that's a lot of obscene, scatological words.

Perhaps we could honor the day the way they do in sports: By retiring something. In Schick's honor, should we make it an 'F' key?

I think we should beat the living crap out of him and then force him to listen to Andrew Lloyd Webber's original cast recording of The Phantom of the Opera.

Is phpBB's database compatible with a five-digit post count, or do we have our own mini-Y2K crisis in the works here?

Has Schick surpassed Daisy? I think Isthmus should rent a giant hot air balloon to celebrate.

Yeah. And why don't you just paste a target on my ass while you're at it?

Heh.

Getting close. 9,996 as I type this. Maybe today.

Looks like it will be sometime after 8 am tomorrow, as Mr Schick is now at 9998 as of 9pm Monday.

I see 9999.

Maybe he will skip right over it, hiding it somewhere obscure like favorite one-liners, and going directly to 10001.

Maybe he will craft a long post with a few words for each of us. (That would be a good read)

Maybe he will reveal that he is Keyser Soze.
