View Full Version : I Have Failed You!

Well, my grand experiment didn't work out. I had the misguided notion that a single, all encompassing, ever-loving and everlasting birthday thread was just what Office Party needed. But after several weeks of an ill-fated trial run, all of my hopes and dreams lay smashed at my feet.

I was nearly inconsolable, weeping all the time and shouting, "Why me, huh? Why must you do this to me?"

Then a voice replied, "Screw that dumb-ass birthday thread. What this place could use is a whole sub-forum dedicated to special occasions."

And just like that, such a room (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=203) appeared, rising out of the mist as if Atlantis had been reborn. :)

pffft. you just wanted to show off your phallic avatar again, sk.



oh, and are you saying that the single, all encompassing, ever-loving and everlasting birthday thread shall die this day?

That would've been a better thread title: I suck!

Or, I Suck, and I Have Failed You!

It's been ported from here to the new room, in case anyone wishes to offer their condolences.

Nah, mate - not a failure. You have successfully demonstrated that the Hegelian dialectic applies not only to political evolution, but to birthday threads.

You're a fricken philosopher genius!

Oh, and your mea culpa was a fine piece of prose.

May the warden let you off with double the bag limit.

I'm big on intriguing thread titles also. Hell, what else do we have to draw more views?

Most of the time my content sucks, but the titles alone should earn Pulitzers or something.

It wasn't there when I griped at SK. Don't try to take away my only pleasure in life.

No, wait. I have two.

Hold on. Three.

No, four...ah, fudge it. Raggin' on the man with a fishypeen avatar is in the top ten at least.

You've been old for a while, trust me. So old, I've heard rumors that they're going to retire May 7th for birthdays because you've used too many.

I think my birthday gift to you redeems all of my past, present, and future sins. So unless you want me to keep the sequel to myself, I would suggest you commence kissing my backside.

Hmm. You could be right.

Happy Birthday!!

You may have failed us, SK, but with contemporary U.S. business models, that just means you'll be in for a huge bonus of cash and stock options...

I don't read any of the birthday threads. Or, really, any threads with words in them. I hate words. Damned words. They've infested the internet.

So....SK....., if you're into getting all the dirty laundry out in the open.....you want us to bring up all the other stuff you suck at? (Get your mind out of the gutter....lol)

If this is the top bad thingy you have done so far this year....I think you are ahead of the game.

I'm not even going to bring up the fact that this could stink too and that you very well may not be done sucking or letting us down.

I'm surprised you used that analogy and not something like, " . . . rising like a teenage boy's erection when he's in the backseat of a car with a braless cheerleader . . . "

He CAN be bribed.

Silver King
05-09-2009, 03:34 AM
I was thinking earlier that the behemoth birthday thread wasn't a failure after all. It was instrumental in helping to spawn a new sub-forum, a place where we can also share our sentiments during other special occasions, such as holidays and anniversaries and stuff.

With that in mind, I'm going to change this thread title to: I Am Not a Failure! I Do Not Suck! I'm a Freaking Genius, and Don't You Forget It! :D
