Not really possible, they changed the definition of popular. Check your new updated dictionary when they come out, his picture is actually in there.

I agree. Felstaff is clever, sometimes, we get it. No need to act like he just discovered a cure for cancer each time he posts something! :roll:

Of course not, that would be silly. He only discovered the cure for cancer once the rest of his posts involved curing other previously incurable terminal diseases.

... No more bitching, we're here for the funny xkcd remixes. No, there won't be splits. If you really have a problem with someone's work because they're getting too mainstream for you, close your eyes real tight and scroll past quickly.

And seriously, the "Oh me yarm its no worse i luled wrong thread lolololol!" shit got old on page, like, two.

PS. Felstaff is better than all of you. That's an official xkcd fora policy.

I didn't mean to start an argument, I was just stating an opinion of mine. Sorry for any disruption I caused... I still think a few of you are misunderstanding me by making it seem as if I hate Felstaff... but let's just continue on with what we were doing so we don't bring out the "asshole" side of any more fora members.

Also, sunami, that was awesome. :wink:

You did it wrong. Cutting things out in the middle like that makes it TOO obvious what you're up to. This is how to do it:

But that greatly decreases the possibilities for hilarity! I'm sure most people that don't know the actual quote would think you're just paraphrasing their main idea.

This Should Be A Forum Game. It's a nifty little acronym I'm trying to use more, along with SWIDT (See What I Did There?) and ISWYDT (I See What You Did There). Interestingly, I too searched this acronym to see if it had been used before, and one of the results was something about life being like a grocery cart. That is now officially my new motto.
