" First, there was an anno, then there was no anno, then there is..."

in light of the latest swiss-cheesing of the 'bakery due to the [21Quest] account hack/crash/glitch/tequila-fueled mishap, we have a host of new places where responses are made to annotations that [21Quest] made that are no longer there.

But I came here to tease [21], not to praise him.

And why should a rare opportunity such as this go wasted?

From now on, when you see evidence of a comment by [21] in an annotation that you made, I encourage each and every one of you to go back and modify your own annotation to in some manner show proper respects for the aforementioned no longer existing anno.

Feel free to express in your own words what you feel is an appropriate surrogate anno substitute for that space. Examples include:

"Gee whiz, your idea is all kinds of awesome ! No possible complaints..."

"I wish my own ideas were a fraction of what this one is..."

"I am going to shave my head and dye my skin blue in response to this idea"

I'm surprised at you [Maxwell] - I didn't think you'd consume such plebian fare... http://zencrumble.com/blue-moon-brewed/

We intend to shave [MaxwellBuchanan]'s head and dye his skin blue in response to this idea.

You're way too late, [8th].
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 21 2015


Ah, you've been to that Singapore nightclub too..it washes off after a while.

Any connection to the Percy Mayfield classic "Hit the woad Jack"?

Not to mention the Beachboys "Woadn't it be nice" 1966 being released in the same year as Picasso knocked out "Madame Ricardo Canals" and I quote "painted during a period of transition between Picasso's Blue and Rose Periods".

It's a conspiracy.

Prior art, [morrison] - Blue Rondo a la Turk, 1959.

Oh, and re m'lords comment below, (link).

Any more smart-alec remarks and you'll all see my Blue Moon.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 21 2015


Great idea, normie.
-- blissmiss, Jan 21 2015


Of course, there is always potential for abuse.

As an example, the [21Quest] anno that used to be above this one, you know, the one that begged us all to please not do this, since he was going to shave his head and become a monk, forsaking all earthly delights such as the halfbakery ?

That anno deserves real respect from us, and as such should never be mocked.

This idea reminds me of how I always try to carry the torch, so to speak, of this site's ideals (as I see them -- I would not pretend to speak for others); the refined wit and cleverness levied with the twin zests of pedantry and insanity; and I certainly do not comment in a way that inspires doubt as to whether I am trolling or merely drunk.

Additionally, I have little interest in pushing the limits of good taste, and in particular dislike discussion of international politics. I have no interest in crass military matters and certainly do not own firearms. I ESPECIALLY do not allude to my ownership of said firearms to add an edge of intimidation to my trolling/drunken comments and bully other commentators to join me in pretending that this discussion is taking place in the back of a pickup truck in some humid swamp many miles away from croissants or any decent custard.

Well, at least it's not in Other:General …
-- 8th of 7, Jan 21 2015


I can't let this go - I'm afraid I need to ask - [sninctown], are you trolling or merely drunk ?

Actually I'm pretty certain that's the non-trolling / sober you, but I've passed up a lot of opportunities in this life, and I'm trying to develop new habits.

And your anno is EXACTLY what [21] would say.
-- normzone, Jan 22 2015


Funny, I don't recall saying those things... But if I said them in a moment of drunken stupidity then say them I did.
-- 21 Quest, Jan 22 2015


Oh dear...How can do anything when now I can actually read the [21] anno above? +

I don't remember any of those things. Of course I joined after 21Q, so I've only got the last 7 years to go on.

Since my annotation on the announcement is no longer, (re)congratulations on the birth of your daughter, Quest.

So, why y'all here, buddy ? The bestiality, the necrophilia, or the glue sniffin' ?
-- 8th of 7, Jan 23 2015


He's here largely because it's a known site for persons afflicted with MGES - Moto Guzzi Envy Syndrome.
-- normzone, Jan 23 2015


Thanks, FT.

8th, that comment reminds me of one of my more creative ideas, Necrophiliostitution.
-- 21 Quest, Jan 23 2015


That idea reminds me of why I avoided you like the plague for awhile...
-- RayfordSteele, Jan 23 2015


Actually, the whole point of a plague is that it's epidemic and very difficult to avoid, otherwise it wouldn't be a plague.
-- 8th of 7, Jan 23 2015


Poor 21. The indigonity of it all.
-- bungston, Jan 23 2015


Paris' wing cull.
-- normzone, Jan 24 2015


That was a hilarious plague.
-- FlyingToaster, Jan 24 2015


Blue yes, shaved no.

I wish I'd seen the text of the actual hack. Is it preserved somewhere?
