In case any of you missed it, he's in a heap (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103478) of trouble now.

Poor RT. I expect someone will come along and outbid everyone else and declare he keep his avatar intact as the man we all know and love.

What? Stranger things have happened. :D

Nah, he's going down. Should he be a teletubbie? Strawberry Shortcake? A sheep in high heels?

Why don't all the bidders combine their money and vote on their top picks for an avatar?

Cranky
05-23-2008, 06:37 AM
I'm considering exactly that, lol. I am tapped out, sadly, and can't bump up my bids further.

My only recourse is collaboration! :D

I think you should round up the fangsters, Cranky.

Haggis
05-23-2008, 06:58 AM
You don't suppose we could get ,say, 30 or 40 people pledging, say, $20 each, do you? And you don't suppose each of them could then post their chosen avatar, do you? And you don't suppose we could then post a poll and have all of AW vote, do you?

You are so evil, Haggis, and I love you so. I have the most wonderful Barbara Cartland avvy that would look beautiful adorning RT's name.

Cranky

Actually, I'm thinking of an Office Party poll, to guage the support for such an effort.

RT makes a fabulous sacrificial lamb, doesn't he? Not a bad idea for an avatar, either, methinks. A nice, fluffy lamb. :D

Hey, is this 30 day thing finalized? I seriously suggest a re-evaluation, 30 days just does not seem fair for a large amount, I mean c'mon, REAL humiliations bear scars that don't fade. Bwah ha haaa. You people just aren't thinking like Haskins. Get with it! :D (oh, and leave Rob alone he's already worn a dress and had shimmering blond hair right?)

30 days is long enough. Dog knows, I've been through my own 30 day Purgatory whilst wearing a dress and kitty fur. Rob, of course, is a different story. He deserves all the "love" we can provide.

Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that angle. So when Rolling gets his due, he'll be able to seek his "revenge?"

That's not right. All bidders and their cohorts should be free of retribution for life!

Maybe Mac can disable Rolling's revenge tactics until well after the auction, say at least for five years or so from now. ;)

Perhaps if Mac allowed one person...oh, I don't know...perhaps me...to have access to a Rolling Thunder Bannination Button, to be used only in cases of abuse or emergency, we could overcome his ungodly urges to seek revenge.

Just a thought. :)

Awww, that one's cute and appeals to the softer side of RT he refuses to show in public.

Looks like Rob is currently in the lead with a whopping $200 bid (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2383744&postcount=144)! The Revenge Cartel is regrouping at the moment, determined to wrest the prize from him. The excitement mounts with every post!

It's precious, all right. I can see RT strapping it to the front of his Harley to keep the bugs from smashing into his leather jacket.
