    A belated welcome of Rumpy Tunanator to Teh Clubbe!

    We found some "missing posts" (not from a sockpuppet!), cast a magic spell with a MySQL query, and ... volia! Rumpy's slackitude is now an order of magnitude higher.

    Let me be the first to say ...

    x 2

    Your challenge ... which one is Rumpy?

    Congrats to RT on achieving honorable membership in Teh Clubbe.

    RT is not in that picture because he was __________ .
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Congrats Rumpy. You are an inspiration, with an average of nearly 7 posts per day. Every time someone rags on me about talking too much, I just smugly think "Well, Rumpy posts more".

    Have a or 2.

    In one Star Trek-Deep Space 9 episode, the crew went back to the time of the original show. Someone asked Worf about the smooth-headed appearance of the Klingons of the day. Worf barked back "we do not discuss these things with outsiders!"

    We found 864 smooth-headed posts from Rumpy (not a sock, and not a different username), and made them bumpy-headed. I know there were more, but they disappeared into the ether of cyberspace when the server crashed last September.

    Wow, this is just wierd."Lost" posts? Well, it couldn't happen to a nicer tuna. Congrats.

    I think an easier question to answer would be, which one isn't one of Rumpy's customers? 'Cause there's not a single one there that doesn't look like they haven't been smoking rock with a 9ft. tunafish.

    Hey, Rumpy beat me to 2X. He must be on a real slacking binge (among other binges). Well, to you. I will hoist my pint glass high with weekend in your honor.

    Looks like the pre-censure Tuna posts have been miraculously merged with the Tunanator.

    What's going on here?

    I am honored and confused. But that is life. Smooth-headed posts? I knew I wasn't going crazy

    I'd like to thank the Tuna formally known as Rumpy, you slackers (there is to many too name, you know who you are), Dan for finding the "missing" posts , Snarf the cat, beer for keeping me sane, my job for pissing me off, Mighty Taco, PBR, etc....................

    In case you were wondering, I'm in the back row, 4th from the left. Lenny, the kid to the right of me, ate my hair piece that day. I mean, his head may be small, but look at the guns on that kid, I couldn't hold him off
