Hey ubarose , have you ever been mistaken for a man?

Ken Bradford said...

I for one welcome our new Ubarose overlord.

Michael Barnes said...

Indeed...hail the death of the Ubamensch.

She drinks bourbon... my kinda gal.
Besides, the infusion of a little estrogen sure as hell won't do us any harm.

Welcome ubarose!

Billy Z.

Julian said...

I'm glad to hear that Ubarose is joining you. Her how to win at Torres entry on her blog was hilarious.

J de said...

Welcome to you! Anxious to see what you're up to

Michael Barnes said...

I kept losing at TORRES until I realized that the only way to win it was to throw it in a trash can.

Michael Barnes said...

Hey, why don't we celebrate Ubarose's commission by someone sending me a copy of the Leading Edge ALIENS game?

Swabbleflange said...

You're in some real pretty shit now.

ubarose said...

Is this a welcome or a hazing?

TORRES gives me a headache.

Baker's, Booker's, Elijah Craig, Knob Creek . . .yummy.

Laugh-a while you can, monkey-boy.

Mr Skeletor said...

Rules? RULES?
This place is getting more oppressive than BGG!
You're full of crap robartin!

MWChapel said...

eeeee...It was a trick question. The correct answer was....

"no, have you?"

tis,tis...please leave your AT ID at the security desk . ;)

Michael Barnes said...

Wrong, Chapel- she totally pulled rank on you. She quoted ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI, something I _never_ thought I'd hear a female do.

Laugh-a while you can, monkey-boy.

William Boykin said...

Since we're playing obscure movie quotes....

"Hey Bill-
Can you rub some of that powder over my lips??"

"Its a Kafka kind of high- it makes you feel like a bug."

Hint- Same director had a movie starring Aragorn and Duke Leto Atreides two years ago.

BUCK BANZI totally over ranks Aliens in terms of geekiness.
Chappy got PWNED,

Naked Lunch?

Michael Barnes said...

Totally NAKED LUNCH, all the way...I'm a HUGE Cronenberg fan! NAKED LUNCH is brilliant stuff, and it's only _second_ tier Cronenberg for me...

Didn't really care for HISTORY OF VIOLENCE though...

Mr Skeletor said...

Hey Robartin, Martin Burke on BGG claims your being nice to ubarose so you can get a sniff of her panties.

I'm dobbin you into your wife.

Michael Barnes said...

Watch it Frank...Martin Burke might complain to management over there and you'll be banned...

robartin said...

How do I go about banning MrSkeletor?

Julian said...

I think you guys should hold a competition for who can get banned next from BGG. The winner gets a Fantasy Flight big box game of their choice. Mr. Skeletor's not allowed to compete because he has a head start.

Pat H said...

Start a thread titles " Fuck all y'all". That should get'er done.

Michael Barnes said...

Heh...I doubt it...you'd get all these milquetoast motherfuckers posting things like "Hurm. Quaint." or "That was eloquent." Or at worst, the dreaded NODDING SMILEY.

It's a good idea Julian, but you are liable to be banned at this point when you're walking down the street and THINKING bad things about BGG. I'm waiting for them to institute a "thoughtcrime" policy at this point, where if even INTEND to criticize Tom Vasel or BGG policy you're banned outright. Like MINORITY REPORT. So nah...a contest should be a challenge...

Michael Barnes said...

But you know, if you post with "IMHO, Fuck y'all" it'll be OK.

Or a full disclosure before your post that says "ALERT! THIS IS A JOKE. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY AS IT IS MEANT IN JEST OR SATIRE AND IN NO WAY REFLECTS REALITY BEYOND SIMPLE PARODY. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO FIND IT FUNNY. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THIS IS HUMOUR AND IS NOT MEANT TO HURT ANYONE'S FEELINGS. NOW, LET'S ALL HAVE A LAUGH AT THIS HERE JOKE, WHICH IS NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AT ALL AND SHOULD NOT BE PERCIEVED AS ANYTHING APPROACHING TRUTH OR MISREPRESNTATION OF SENSITIVE PARTIES"

Julian said...

So no competition then? I'm disappointed. I think that I could have got it done with just one post (putting you to shame Michael). I have half a mind to do it, so I can be down with the cool crowd. Also I wanted Tide of Iron for free. But I suppose you're right competitions should be hard.

We better be seeing some naked pics really damn soon. None of this behind the scenes Weeks has with Pickles, or I'm outta here. If this is real AT, I want tits in my face and a gun pointed at the camera.

Michael Barnes said...

Jeremy- I fixed your post.

*sigh*
Sometimes I think that men have the emotional intelligence of a small soap dish.

There is only one reason anyone ever gets banned from a forum - the admin doesn't like you. Period. That's it. The admin and the members can rationalize it a dozen different ways but it boils down to simple emotions.

If the Admin likes you, they will e-mail you and say, dude, I really like you, but . . .
you’re making my life hell, or your fucking with my livelihood, or I can't take the damn e-mails from the whiney pants members anymore, or you crossed a personal line with me or whatever . . . please cut it out.

If the Admin doesn't like you, they just say "The hell with this," and push the ban button. Or in the case of one of the boards that I do tech support for, we just change the person's password, and then we pretend like we are having a technical issue - and then we laugh like hell.

hughthehand said...

LOL. Thanks Michael. Can you imagine how long threads would be if you had that disclosure every time someone posted?

Yes Ubarose, I have the emotional intelligence of a dish soap. That is why I want those damn pics! Take one for the team!

(please email them to: theseventhgate@ameritech.net)

I like your comment by the way on admins. That is how it is, and I have no problem with it.

Mr Skeletor said...

I must admit the lack of tit on this site is disappointing... unless you have access to the secret section!
