Howard Treesong joining the ranks of the young & reckless, if only for a short time. I've wondered, how well known is that turn of phrase (Tied one on)? I've heard it before, but only in a limited capacity.

Thanks for confirming my suspicion that it might be a generational thing, Dids. I've heard people say this (rarely) but always suspected they were aping their dads.

Oh, I sent $50 to Gobbo. Hope he got it. Wanted it to go to winner but fine with funding Oyishi or split up bet wise however you like.

I know I learned this from my father. I also heard it from the manager of my college dorm, who was a long-time chief petty officer in the navy who served in the Second World War. It's a bit of an old-timey expression, but I think reasonably well known even amongst the young and unwise.

I'll take #10, charity the FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation). They send letters and sue government entities that try to use public office to push religion, usually Christianity, so big defender of separation of church and state.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

I have picked the Domestic Violence Intervention Services, Inc. "(DVIS), is the only nonprofit agency in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the surrounding communities to provide comprehensive intervention and prevention services to families affected by domestic and sexual violence. Our mission is to rebuild lives affected by domestic violence and sexual assault through advocacy, shelter, counseling, and education."

Name: Rexx14
Number: 14
Charity: Domestic Violence Intervention Services.

I pledge to donate $20 to the winner which I will do and then screenshot or whatever is the protocol.

I will nominate some people I don't think have been mentioned

microbet- an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful poster who I wish posted in OOT more. Comes across as a very decent person.

Zik Zak- another very helpful poster who has a good sense of humour to boot. I like his approach as he will argue his point but not make it ridiculously personal.

holliday- I think possibly he thinks of himself as an H&Fer but as I first came across him in OOT that's how I classify him. Again extremely helpful and encouraging poster with a ridiculous sense of humour. I have him to thank that I now often think of peeing on strippers when I am going to the loo.

LKJ- a good analytical mind, can present an argument well and is a solid contributor.

DodgerIrish- gets a guernsey purely on his great puns!


It was actually really hard to narrow it down to 5 as there are heaps more people whose posting I really enjoy.

I will also second Tuma because he is a great addition to OOT being a little off beat and left of field. Even when I'm not sure what he is saying, I assume it is good stuff and I am just not clever enough to get it. Oh yes MrmmmKay gets a second because he makes me laugh.

Quote:
Our Mission

To provide a lifelong home to donkeys, mules and hinnies who are unwanted, neglected or abused, or whose owners can no longer care for them; and to promote the responsible stewardship of all animals through humane education.
...
One of the questions we regularly get, from visitors, from people in conversation, indeed, even from our friends and family [lol], is: why donkeys? We provide a simple answer to this question - 'Because it's necessary'.
Asses! Asses! Asses! Come on in, ass lovers! They've got white asses, black asses, hot asses, cold asses, wet asses, smelly asses, hairy asses, silky asses, velvety asses, big asses, little asses. If you love asses then put money on 7!

I'll take $1 on each and $15 on 7. $52 sent to gobs. If 7 wins I may pop by and get you some hot ass shots.

Re: Charity rOOTlette 2017: July 10, 7pm Vegas time @ Bellagio

After some thoughtful consideration, I'd like to nominate...

27offsuit!

Why? Because the more he posts and the more I get to know him, the more I like him.

Howard,

I dislike your politarding in threads where it has no place. I also think you hold a few really weird opinions, but overall I think you're one of the best OOT posters and I definitely don't dislike you.

I actually kind of figured that. I was fishing for a cheap compliment!

The women that work there are crazy people. But, like, the right kind I guess. Sounds like you should put a twenty down on donkey town.

PUT A TWENTY DOWN ON DONKEY TOWN.

Also can someone pick War Amps Canada so I stop feeling guilty.

DoctorZangief - the charity needs to be an IRS accredited 501(c)(3) charitable organization per rule #2. Does your lolcanada charity have a USA#1 branch or equivalent?
