FREEPers: SOMEONE EXPLAIN THE SHOWER JOKE TO ME!
Free Republic ^

Posted on 05/26/2002 10:38:45 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

I think I remember the first time I heard the "shower" joke, but it's been lost in the shuffle!

SOME FREEPERs who were there when it started,

PLEASE EXPLAIN THE 'TIME TO GET IN THE SHOWER' JOKE for your less-informed fellow FREEPers.

This is getting to be along the line with "all your base are belong to us" on this web site!

Someday someone here is going to create a picture of the "showering cheese moose" statue. This will undoubtedly become a staple of FreeRepublic, to be posted and referred to again and again. Who out there is artist enough to take up this challenge?

I'm usually at the thread when these things start, but I missed this one. I believe it has something to do with a Freeper making a comment that she was taking a shower while news was breaking and then the thread was hijacked after that. I think it means that something usually happens when you're off doing something away from FR.

Yoo Hoo! Registered, you might want to consider the concept of the "Showering Cheese Moose" statue? See above for details.

A freeper named Brytani(sp?) posted that her husband might be near an accident and she was nervous then said she was going to take a shower and see how it was after she got back.

I probably screwed it up but there's the jist.

I believe she now finds the shower comments pretty funny and sometimes even beats the shower jokesters to the punch...I don't remember exactly how it started, but I do know she would never actually put her shower first over her husband's welfare...maybe she can enlighten us as to what her original post actually WAS (although that might take some of the hilarity out of it, huh?)

By now, the shower humor is pure Freeper lore and goes with the territory...

As for the "all your bases are belong to us"...I missed that one...feel pretty certain it had nothing to do with giant rabbits or Yatta dancers....

Yeah, i think that was pretty much it. As i remember it she was preparing to take a shower when she heard a report that there was a disturbance on some flight, so she posted on here asking if anyone else had heard anything and then she mentioned that her husband was scheduled to be flying just then but that she had to get back to her shower. Naturally after that all the wags came on and gave her a hard time and it's become a running joke ever since.

I believe "All your base are belong to us!" originally showed up in a badly translated Japanese video game; I'm not sure how it got to FR.

Bogo, you're screwed, via #23. Brit doesn't like no third-hand accounts. It's not anyone's fault that she had to post and then take that shower, but hey, what's a minor internet legend?

My favorite Venezuelan game show features the losers getting into a glass shower at the end. I can't understand the lingo, but who cares?
