A moment in which conspiring halfbakers decend upon an innocently posted non-starter of an idea, and croissant it to kingdom come, leaving the author bemused, but happy.

"An LED message board for your rear window? How original... croissant!"

I was pretty sure something like this was responsible for the insane, bewildering popularity of this idea. It got 80+ croissants in under a week. [bungston, Apr 15 2005]

       I keep hoping that will happen to my ideas ...   

       Even more mysterious would be if absolutely NO ONE annotated on the topics ... 120+, 3- , and NO comments

       I think [jutta] could play some very cruel tricks if she wanted to.
Worldgineer, Sep 24 2003
  

       There are certainly a number of ideas out there with votes and no annos.
stupop, Sep 24 2003
  

       We already have the reverse, where a flashmob descends on a poor idea and fishbones it without so much as a thank you. Tell the truth, what good is it to KNOW your idea stinks, but was accidentally the victim of kind fate? Where's the credibility in that? You just want to know what it's like, don't you, [FishFace]?

       [letsbuildafort] how about if we wrote honest annos but still voted for it? "This is the worst idea ever.... croissant!"
Fishrat, Sep 24 2003
  

       [k_sra] At least my fishbones are genuine! However, I think I'm pragmatic (desparate) enough to accept sarcastic croissants. Kinda like I'd be happy if a supermodel decided to sleep with me for a joke.
Fishrat, Sep 24 2003
  

       Are you saying that my fishbones are fake? <thumps a fishbone> You hear that? That's one hundred percent ... wait, what are fishbones made of? Bone or cartilage? I'm confused. Maybe these aren't real.
k_sra, Sep 24 2003
  

       I just checked [link] and it seems that fish bones are actually.. erm.. bone.   

       But I think their scales are replica. They look decidedly fishy to me.
Fishrat, Sep 24 2003
  

       Well, you learn something new every day around here.
k_sra, Sep 24 2003
  

       This idea is evil and contrary to the point of the place. The author may be bemused but I'd bet the admins and bakesperson would not be.
waugsqueke, Sep 24 2003
  

       What if you didn't know you already knew it?
DrCurry, Sep 24 2003
  

       Oh [waugsqueke], surely evil is a bit strong? After a week on this site, even I can see that the HB community is tough enough to handle a bit of mischief. I wouldn't enjoy being the butt of the flashmob naughtiness, but I'm sure I'd survive.   

       When a new idea becomes contrary to the point of this place, isn't THAT contrary to the point of this place?   

       What I'm suggesting isn't dangerous subversion, but a one-off, beautiful, and fun moment of art.   

       Come on, evil a elttil.

       I smell a Rat or a Cat, This flashmobbing thing is worrying to the Extreme. Like I say I smell something rotten
The Kat, Sep 24 2003
  

       Something rotten in denmarked-for-deletion?
Fishrat, Sep 24 2003
  

       // Oh [waugsqueke], surely evil is a bit strong? //   

       No, I think that's about right.
waugsqueke, Sep 24 2003
  

       I thought this would involve 800 Halfbakers descending on a random bakery in New York and buying every croissant they have.
disbomber, Apr 15 2005
  

       How about "The USB CD"? All in favor, vote for This posting (Halfbaked flashmob) but don't leave a comment. I will delete this annotation as a signal to start the mobbing.
