    1st Annual Cyburbian Water Cooler Award(s)

    Warning: Inane irony embedded in this thread.

    The Award(s).....Presenting the 1st Annual Cyburbian Water Cooler Award. If provided with substantial inane unsubstanuated evidence, multiple awards would be considered.....on-topic, of course.

    Water Cooler: The Appropriate Symbol......What better symbol for this award then the good ole' water cooler? We Cyburbians congregate in random fashion, carry-on pointless conversations, occasionally move into work-related topics even if wearing the secret Friday Afternoon Club decoder ring, and wander almost aimlessly from topic to topic. There is a system logical water cooler many of us are leaning on, every day.

    Suggested Key Word(s) Reasoning For The Award.....Pajamas, Stan, De Noc, Patriots, slippers, Michigan, Ace of Base, clementines, dog breath, ex-wives, Portland, hopkin, grass, puppies.....blah dum-de-dum-dum blah, etc.

    The Only Nominating Rule.....You can only nominate yourself.

    My Nominee.....I nominate Bear Up North, aka BUN. This character.....not even a planner !!!.....forced himself into the previously non-inane streets of Cyburbia about five years ago and flooded the community with a steady stream of off-the-wall, Libertarian-pinko, completely unnecessary threads and posts. I challenge you to name a not-worthwhile-even-to-discuss topic that BUN has not littered the Cyburbian streets with. Winning this award could get him off your backs.

    No responses to this thread assures the world that we have a winner, even without counting Florida and Michigan.

    I married RJ. And the whole relationship was subject to Cyburbia Water Cooler discussions.

    owner of RJ approved slippers;
    had to have been married to have an ex-, so answer is still no;
    no higher honor than being recognized as a SA by RJ and ZG; and
    Never been a Patriots or ND fan.

    It is always about RJ.

    There they go again.

    I nominate Otterpop, because I do not wear pajamas; knows a guy named Stan; wants much of the Patriot Act repealed; owns three pairs of slippers; has never been to Michigan; is the Ace of Base -less accusations; thinks clementines are the best citrus; never has dog breath; has no ex-wives, but was a contributing factor to another man making his wife an ex; been to Portland, Oregon; smoked enough grass to have a small town in Colombia named after me; and is immune to the attraction of puppies.

    Thank you for your support.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    You mean we have to be planners?
    None of the cheap skates that I have worked for ever had a water cooler, so I sorry to say obviously I am out of the running

    I nominate ofos, because: My lack of Pajamas causes every country ending in Stan to invoke the Patriot Act and order RJ slippers to be sent to Dearborn, Michigan where anyone caught playing Ace of Base or eating clementines will be immediately afflicted with such terrible dog breath that even BUN's ex-wives will consider swimming while wearing Portland cement overshoes or consuming a species of hallucinogenic grass causing them to have nightmares of Monty Burns wearing their puppies as an overcoat.

    If nominated, I will not run, if elected, I will not serve.

    ME: I wonder what chemicals are in the water in the watercooler.

    I think the PG record speaks for itself
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"
