*and then all the sudden... Solberg enters the room and says something*

"Hey you young whipper snappers, I'm trying to sleep next door. If I have to come back here again I'll just insert myself in this story."

*and with that Solberg walks back out the door*

:cool:

Um...

It's really not a good idea to misquote Jeff in your signature. People have been banned for quoting him out of context. Fabricating a quote entirely is pretty stupid.

Wasn't Ash Lael was banned because he took the quote out of context in such a way that it provided negative advertising for A4? Or are there others I don't know about?

Waiting for the wereSmoo to start killing isn't the best solution. After all the real Smoo is going to face trouble for starting the whole rat problem. How do you differentiate their reactions if you don't know that Smoo was captured?
Why not place guards on both Smoos? It would essentially make wereSmoo useless to Attorosi, because wereSmoo couldn't make a move without alerting the boards to his activity.

Or, you could shackle them both up, and have the Mystic decide which one's the real Smoo.

On a fluffy note, I wonder if Fluffy Turtles will eat spam... I'm sure my fictional character will have some left.

Needless to say, I failed.

I don't think any in-story characters know that there are two Smoos yet.

Yes, but the in-story characters won't fall for the same trick twice. They already know that the rats can impersonate smoo, so any smoo which "escapes and returns to them" will undoubtedly be put under guard.

That is ofcourse, if we haven't totally lost what little sanity we had left...

I shall use the power of my 300th POST to say that I meant no ill to Jeff and that the "quote" was meant to be funny. It says nothing derogatory and was done in fun. I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but unless Jeff wants it down...it stays. :cool:

EDIT: You can see the other "quotes" I said on the Merry Christmas (Statistics 2006-12). You will also see this quote.

Not always. Sometimes, like in this case, it just swallows them and spits them back out. :P

Could you at least change it so it is more like quotes in other people's signatures? The empty space and bold makes it too distracting (and therefore annoying) the way it is.

Thankfully, the Oracle of Today's Active Topics can usually locate them, even if they've been eaten. It's true! OTAT can display even eaten posts!

Unfortunately, OTAT is not good at noticing edited posts.

So when's... wait.

Alright. When is the... Oh! *Confiscates a stick and a table*

Let's try this again. Is there a tentative release date on the next one?

Would you look at that! I did have some sanity left! Not anymore, though. My dignity went by the wayside as well, it seems.

Naturally, good stuff. I can't wait to see how we actually tell the two Smoos apart.

Simply turn them both over to those of us in the Richard White Cult. We have a ritual involving a bucket, a torch, and a pair of tweezers that hasn't yet failed to determine whether a person is not a rat.

Nice way to get most of the strays back together. Loved my lines. Too bad Drakefyre didn't want to use kill and revive method of testing Smoo.

Why did TM get turned away? He has a temporary place in the 8th contest forums at the moment. He can converse with any of the other judges there at least until the flood subsides.

For a while, I quoted Lord Vogelmort in my sig along with another quote that made him sound like a hypocrite, and nothing came of it for me. :P

This may be more of a case that New Hampshire has drained any sense of humour once possessed by Slarty.

I spent today driving around a buttload of backroads.

That may be the case.

...it may also be the case that I have stopped paying attention to posts by people who only post spam. Although that can't be true, given what I'm replying to right now.

Actually, I think the problem is not New Hampshire, but rather the lack of easy availability of certain need-fulfilling experiences.

You're in the same place I was for the first two stories: locked in an unsellable-trowel closet. Watch out, some of them are rusty.

Well, in theory, this story is taking place before the judging is. Time flows strangely here.

I'm still waiting for me to do something actually Synergistical rather than something randomly incidental.
