Anyone got a favourite that sticks in their brain ?
Also, is there any way to see which Opening Posts, Threads or Comments got the most upvotes or replies etc. ?

I miss factual and her take on the political poles.

Oh and Norman bates does a great job on the Tv3 thread.

The rest of you are fairly useless.

Get a life. This is on a par with the Late Late Christmas jumper drivel which is foisted on us by sick RTE every year,

Thank you very much. Of course, none of this would have been possible without mother. So, thank you too, mother ... and yes, a boy's best friend is his mother.

I'll buy you a new wig for Christmas. Mother deserves a new do.

I liked the 'What movie would you recommend' thread. there were some gems on that one.
The white bigot's head being attached to the soul brother was my favourite despite being posted by the most unpleasant poster on this site. I admire his B movie tastes.

Do you mean Calculus. He is a great poster. Would be in my list of best / most interesting posters.

I find that shocking :lol: Still I never laughed so much at that movie trailer. Especially the scene where the 'attached head' was on the back of a motor cycle. Class.
