Guerrilla Halfbakers

Okay, if we're going to have Halfbakers Anonymous, it will not take long for an underground reactionary force to spring up in response, just as Guerrilla Pedants arose in response to PA.

Recruited from the ranks of HA members who've fallen off the wagon, Guerrilla Halfbakers will skulk through the nights subversively baking ideas posted at the halfbakery. Tomorrow morning, will Topekans find their speed bumps have been filled with custard? Next week, will all the words on Britney Spears' web site be reworded in third person plural conditional past perfect continuous tense? Will New Yorkers awake to discover chestnut vendors citywide, even in the summer? All of these mysterious modifications, and many, many more, will be the work of... GUERRILLA HALFBAKERS! (Supervillain [superhero?] name registered at SHVNRO)

       yes! yes! yes! it's project mayhem all over again! (without all the explosions and killings and stuff, of course) if you don't understand, go see fight club.
mihali, Apr 11 2001

       No, no, no. More explosions, more stuff.   

       (I've got the left coast on lock, who's representing the middle states?)
iuvare, Apr 11 2001

       I will take personal responsibility for the Britney Spears-lyric detail.   

       "They would have been thinking that they would have been doing it again
They would have been playing with his heart, and would have been getting lost in the game
(Oh baby baby)
Ooops; he would have been thinking that they would have been in love
That they would have been being sent from abo-oo-ove
They would not have been being that innocent ..."

       Naturally, in solidarity with my fellow Guerillas, I will deny any allegiance with the Halfbakers if caught in the act of lyric correction.   

       Viva las semi-panaderos!
1percent, Apr 11 2001

       I got VA to FL, and I nominate Susen for the middle States. Viva la Bakerrvolution!!
absterge, Apr 11 2001

       Comrade iuvare... Salud!
thumbwax, Apr 11 2001

       I'll take care of the middle west ....Wisconsin to Tennessee...Ohio to Iowa. However, I do demand all of Kentucky as payment. It's 10 minutes til 4 am here....I'm still hoping Texas has her foal tonight. She's been keeping me up entirely way too much.

       I've got Utah, but I'll have to learn Spanish to get my own damn neighborhood

       The first rule of the halfbakery is don't talk about the halfbakery.   

       The second rule of the halfbakery is DO NOT TALK about the halfbakery.....
Zircon, Feb 02 2002

       Shush - anybody see iuvare?
thumbwax, Feb 03 2002

       A big warm sticky croissant.   

       I've been lurking quietly around the halfbakery since my "Standardise kitchenware" idea flopped but this idea made me stick my head up from the camouflage like a prairie dog with a stiff back.   

       Bake this idea and the whole universe would be a much more interesting place, enough said.
MrKangaroo, Feb 03 2002

       I don't even know what guerrilla tastes like. Armadillo, perhaps?
LoriZ, Feb 04 2002

       I will personally manage the british branch of the GHBers....... steel toed socks for all!

       The Bakers Bun: (To the tune of the Red flag,see link, which is also 'oh Christmas tree')   

       The peoples bun is golden brown, A pastry of great renown, And ere the bakers plant the seed, address the world's most pressing need.   

       Then raise the demi croissant high, beneath its crumbs we'll live and die, though boners bone and trollers sneer we'll keep on half baking here.
rambling_sid, Dec 22 2004

       El Dorado, this would only be magic if the Guerrila Halfbakers were to bake ideas that were m/f/d magic.
spiritualized, Dec 22 2004

       The history. There are so few ideas, with so much history.   

       It's a shame, that a person is perhaps having a bad time in their life, (never happens to me), that a stupid idiotic troll, could cause someone with taste, and class, and intelligience, to be questioned about their intentions. (Was it not always a positive, to bring to mod's attention trolls? We don't have them anymore. Mods I mean, we got our usual sumertime barnyard full of trolls.)   

       Maybe, just maybe, and I know it's late, and I should be asleep, maybe when good people have unjust things going on in their life, and they tend to respond to trolls, as opposed to ignoring them, maybe, just maybe, the management could find some sign that says, this person must be suffering. And grant them grace, as opposed to encouraging the trolls.   

       Instead of making the troll feel the victor, because the "old timer" is banned, why not have moderators?
blissmiss, Jul 31 2005

       Bliss Miss, I feel your pain.   

       In an alternate dimension of automotive forums; I moderate, therefore I am. And it is a thankless job.   

       Great idea, this goo-rilla baking. I shall give it a warm bun.
moPuddin, Jul 31 2005

       Puddin, As far as I know, all mods agree to be mods because they feel it's a compliment. There is no gain nor glory. However, I feel as though the bakery has become a breeding ground for trolls.   

       There used to be a presence. Atleast four mods and the bakesperson. I always thought they kept the door open, but also kept their hand on the knob, just in case. Now...
blissmiss, Aug 01 2005

       Hmm this Fight Clud thing has go me thinking. maybe Bubba is a figment of my paranoid imagination?

xandram, Mar 13 2009

       anybody know what these annos are about ? the "auld" hb seems different somehow.   

       Meanwhile I've done the occasional "clown in a chair by the railroad tracks" type of thing.
FlyingToaster, Mar 13 2009

       I'm searching for prior art regarding some kind of recruitment campaign for halfbakers, since things are somewhat slow around here at the time.   

       And then, there was this .... I don't believe it's what we need, but it's .... Well, it just is, that's all.
