I nominated the Thune thread not because I started it... but because it chronicled how a senate seat was stolen away from us right under our eyes. We watched it happen online. They used to have to do that sort of thing in the "dark of night"...

The worst: Someone (me, actually) posted the winner in some World's Funniest Joke contest. Unfortunately it led hundreds of Freepers to post their own idea of a funny joke. It went on for days, much to my embarrassment.

I'd vote for mine about Bob Shrum writing the Wellstone Eulogy and planning the Funerally. I say this not out of egotism, but because several Freepers made a point of discounting my report as "hearsay".

For those of you who said that...I wasn't kidding!

Just my 1 cent worth.

I found the thread about capturing the snipers sleeping in their cars to be fascinating and kept me up for a long time. Course it had the play by play of the Tree Stump being carted away in a UHaul.

I do agree that the Election Night live threads (there were a bunch), all through the night, were the best and most compelling threads of the year. The excitement really built as the returns kept coming in.

The live threads can be very entertaining. There was one on a boxing match--I think it was Tyson vs. someone--that was hilarious. Somebody--was it hole_n_one?--posted his "on-site drawings" of the match, which were absolutely hilarious.

Well darn it. This 500+ thread by focalts pendulum was the funniest thread I've read all year. FP needed help translating an urgent message written in French from a Yahoo chat room. Now what humbug would want to pull such a laff riot. ( tried to ping him, I can't spell his name)

Admin Moderator:
Is there anyway to retrieve a "nominated" thread for this poll? Much thanks if you can manage this.

where would leftist universities be without cannon fodder like this?

i remember once conversing with a photography professor, a very attractive lady dressed provocatively came in, late, with her final photos.

the teacher looked thru' them and said, "a c (grade) is the best i can do."

she started looking more and more horny, and i sensed it was time for me to leave the classroom!
