The greatest threads ever.\
5. "Bai Ling is on the roof!" Our first high quality thread in a long, long time.\
4. The 9.11 thread. I don''t know if it was all that special as far as the content, but it was incredibly practical as an information source since every other site on the net was unreachable that day. An early responder called the WTC an insatiable bottom, a common DL phrase at the time.\
3. The guy dying of cancer (it was actually a departure from normal DL snarkiness and was kind of touching).\
2. "Dialing the Phone with a Pencil" Every time I see a fair-haired waifish young boy, I imagine him at a telephone, pencil in hand, working that rotary magic, and fashioning himself all glamorous "like those women on tv." \
1. "I hate my friend Julie". The gold standard of threads. Will never be surpassed.
Can these threads still be accessed? I''m kind of new to this site?
I remember enjoying that Ancient Rome thread.
the "Let''s Pretend We''re Sumerian Farmwives" and "Let''s Pretend We''re 1930''s Shopgirls" ones were particularly fun.
Ginny from Billing
There have been more than a few "Home for Thanksgiving" threads, all jewels.
And the DiLlie goes to... "I Just Slept with Janie Lane". He''s a nominee for sure, especially with that tragic third act.
btt reealing his vote
The neighbor who was thought to be a gargoyle.\
"Dee Hall here. Any questions?"\
The Jason Patric thread, that turned into breaking up in front of Jasmine Guy''s house, with a side order of Diana Canova & Inga Swenson. I loved how far off-topic that whole thread went.
P.S. If there is a comedy division, I also cast major vote for "Can You Make a Margarine Fountain?" (though not its original title). I giggled to tears reading that one and its responses and prayed for pictures. %0D\
That thread alone made me join DL.
btt who needed the laugh then so thanks to all
The Red Dragon cheese thread.
One I missed - the possum in the drawer. All of the above were great. %0D\
Also cash bar and shoes indoors were so much fun.
I just read the one about Nick Carter''s fan/stalker/muse -- seriously weird stuff. Hope the poor crazy lady is OK. And relieved that I haven''t had to hear on the news about Nick Carter being attacked with bouquets of peonies wielded by a delusional plump middle-aged widow from L.A.
I too, love the Red Dragon cheese thread. I still chuckle about it.
claire and her bread pudding fetish and the clueless gay subsidizer of it.
Another one I enjoyed was the one with the bride-to-be in Canada. DLers mocked her wedding site and posted snarky messages on it, then she posted some pretty cool messages on DL. Eventually DLers loved her and discussed pitching in for a wedding gift. Anyone remember that one?
Margarine Waterfall was a pretty damn funny thread. "The Willy Wonka of trans-fats" was my personal favorite.
"Dialing the Phone with a Pencil" I was just thinking of the little boy sitting in his window singing and his mother yelling up to tell him to "Stop singing wouldn''t you like to ride in my beautiful balloon". %0D\
The pizza place that didn''t allow soda refills.
Jessica Fletcher Takes on 9-11 Conspiracies
A lot of newcomers here, who don''t appreciate the homosex, where the man go up into the man.
the 9/11 threads considering the upcoming anniversary
The Jason Patric/Jasmin Guy thread was a classic.%0D\
Dialing the Phone with a pencil and I hate my best friend, Julie are my all-time faves but the 1930''s Shopgirls made me fall in love with DL.
What about Terry, the most pathetic gay guy in Christendom? Not really funny, but an utterly fascinating glimpse into a truly sad and deeply fucked up life.

My pussy aches so please feed it. That holds a special place in my heart. \
Also, any thread started by my bf, Ciaran.
I like the threads of guys presenting holes or pissing, but I''m a slut.
Her moment may have been brief, but I do have a soft spot for the Lisa Whelchel troll.
Anything pertaining to Momma and her mussy. Honey, by now her mussy must be more moist than a snack cake floating down an alleyway during Hurricane Katrina.
The Hurricane Dennis thread
Agree on: \
"I just slept with Janie Lane", hilarious. (Momma and her mussy made several appearances). I was posting on that thread and watching it unfold that night. Then he died a few weeks later, which was horrific and made me feel shitty for posting all the shit I did on on that thread. \
Kelli (the Muse) and Nick Carter (the Lovelorn Swain)\

"Oh, I feel so close to you! You''re almost like another girl, what with you being gay and all! Hee Hee Hee!"
The first big hasfrau office thread was hilarious (it had a really specific angle and title), but it led to a huge surge in everything hausfrau and fat-woman coworker which got less and less funny.
I loved the responses in the thread about the "Let''s Roll" 9/11 widow. Some of them were the funniest things I''d read on DL in a long time.
Oh how humiliating.. The guy who had a crush on the young latin deli guy.%0D\
The crazy lesbian coke dumped on the kitchen floor thread.%0D\
Vincent D''onofrio thread.
Ginny in Billing is one of my favs. I have selections of it saved in my personal "Best of Datalounge" word doc.
the guy who bought claire dinner
Remember the thread about the guy who thought he was sooooooooo hot and couldn''t stop having plastic surgery? He had pictures of his highrise apartment all over his website.
The original ''Ghost Stories and the Occult'' thread. I wish that one could rise from the dead.
Colonial Datalounge. Haddeth wit.
Hester P., ancestor of Cheryl..
I recall a trick wanting a fresh towel thread. \
It was about him wanting to shower and the guy, whose apartment he was in, wanted him to leave after they fucked, but there was the trick thinking he could stay overnight and get a fresh towel for his shower!! \
it was hilarious.
Any thread started by the "I love mornings in the city" troll.
Guys Presenting their Holes never loses its charm.
The thread about the guy who mistakenly sent a cell phone video he took of himself masturbating to everyone in his contact list. I think it was on a holiday - Easter or Thanksgiving maybe, so all of his relatives got it at the same time, while sitting around the table. I think one fainted and one threw up. Of course his boss and coworkers also got it. Did he quit or get fired? I remember him saying he was moving out of town. Certainly whoever posted made it up, but it was funny, especially the play by play of how it all came crumbling down. As I recall, the first post was something to the effect of "oh my god!!! I sent a video to my whole contact list, how can I undo it??!!" and it went on from there. Those are the kind of ESTs I like.

[R7] "Dee Hall Here" threads was a classic. Hell almost all the soap threads were a riot.\
And the "Susan Lucci Here" thread that died soon as Dee came in and crushed Susan''s feelings.\
Also anything that talked about the original M. before everyone was doing the meryl streep thing.\
Although now some of my favorites are the Karen Ziemba trolls that pop out of seemingly nowhere but are a complete riot.
Forgot to add to the ''best titles'' -- something like Newscasters You''d Love to Fuck
DL is so self-consuming. Content about content about content ad infinitum. Sad.
Here for a decade
I love you R60! Great list. \
The Jani Lane thread was called: "I just had sex with Jani Lane". \
Something about the ''real time'' threads that makes it more fun. \
The whole thread was depressing and funny at the same time. Super sad that Jani died a few weeks later. Posters on the thread, as well as the OP were saying how messed up he was. Little did we know just how messed up. It kind of took the entertainment value out of the thread. I looked at it the week he died and it really wasn''t funny anymore. However, at the time of the posting it was hilarious.
Nan Michiganwomyn at the Movies: Nan reviewed Brokeback Mountain complete with a proposal for a penis-free alternate lesbian film, Gaia Valley.
Thanks, R64. I agree about the Jani Lane thread. Yes, dying tends to put a damper on the fun part. RIP, JL.\
But, yes, before that happened it was an amazing thread. There was the OP saying he just had sex with Jani Lane and was asking DL posters whether he should go back into the bed where Lane was passed out and bite his shoulder playfully to wake him up. You didn''t know what was going to happen next...
In all fairness, R63, DL has been talking about itself almost as long as I''ve been here. It''s a feature, not a bug.
the guy who bought claire dinner
"What Celebrities are Thinking right Now" featured Anna Wintour stating, ''If one more child asks to see my oompaloompas, I''m going to find Johnny Depp and stick a knife in his eye!''\
''All Alone For Thanksgiving'' preceded ''I''m bringing my vegan lesbian for Thanksgiving'' by a year.\
My all time favorite was ''Purple Safety Helmets Required for Beauty School Short Bus''.
r48 that classic was the brilliant Sows at The Trough
r68, that helmet thread had me crying with laughter. I love Price.
the "dear Satan....love Ben Affleck" thread
Let''s hear it for my shitbra!!!
I liked the one where Denny came to New York from the midwest with his wheelie suitcase looking to crash at strangers'' apartment.\
"Move it along toots" was another favorite.
The Donna Mills thread\
The Daytime Emmy Awards\
The Janet Jackson "accident?" at the superbowl, complete with pixs and videos.
The one about bringing a vegan to a dinner party.
I enjoyed that rather surreal thread about Daniel Bexton shooting iguanas in his yard.
I miss Cristy.
I do remember a lot of these but my all time favorite was Josh''s cocktail party thread. Christ that was something like 8 years ago and the DL was free...
I''m a newbie and these all sound delightful. Laughing my ass off!\
Whsh we had a thread that identified all of the trolls...I''m starting to piece together who is who.
Not Dee Hall
My Sister''s Bitch Cat, all about a guy who kept getting scratched and bitten by his sister''s cat. The original post ended with two lines that were something like: "Why won''t it love me? If it ever comes near me I''m going to pet it again."
R79, there was a thread once upon a time that asked posters to identify which trolls they were. It was interesting to see which people were the same trolls. \
Speaking of that, I used to love the Deb Messing troll but haven''t read anything from him/her in a long while.
The "Debra Messing is a cunt" thread - with the starving African orphans who literally had cancer running from their eyes...
I miss all the crazy threads launched by that deranged ''anti-chicago troll''.\
He would have like six or seven threads going simultaneously about how much he hated chicago and everything that was wrong with it.\
He eventually got red tagged (speaking of which, where did that little feature go?), and his full madness came to light. Not only was he the anti-chicago troll, he would often answer his own posts defending chicago, and then come back and criticize those.\
What a loon.\
I miss him.
Surprised no one has mentioned one of the classic DL threads "How the Facts of Life Girls Would Handle the War in Iraq" from a few years ago. That one I printed up and keep in my file drawer just for a laugh when I need it.
Don''t put too much stock in those "which troll are you?" threads, R81. More than once I''ve seen an authenticated poster take credit for something I''d written anonymously. Isn''t that sad?\
Nothing on DL has ever made me laugh so hard as Twinkster and his tales of mayhem and face-slapping. It would be worth having David Ehrenstein return if it also meant new tales of Corn Bread Red and Mr. Chives.
I also love the "freaks You Work With" thread and any that have happened since then. Another favorite that had me laughing til I cried was the thread where everyone dished about horrible weddings they''ve gone to. %0D\
And of course:%0D\
WHY ARE STRAIGHT ME SO STUPID?
Mine has to be the loved/reviled insane "Sows AT The Trough". It was just packed with hilarious posts. And another vote with "Dialing WIth A Pencil". %0D\
The Helen Lawson ones were overrated.
Nothing will ever surpass the African Baby Catalogue.
Let''s pretend we''re Law & Order\
My Daughter Just Got Accepted to Hudson University\
[quote]My Daughter Just Got Accepted to Hudson University\
OMG, I had forgotten that thread. So funny!
Another vote for the original "Sows At The Trough". And "I'm Not Running A Bed And Breakfast Here" AKA Turkey Meatballs was so hilarious because the poster was obviously looking for sympathy but was then ripped to pieces for being a mean-spirited cheapskate.
It's no use wishing for them though- they've all been deleted. That's what happened when we went to the new format. And then the archive from that time to this April was deleted.. this April. I think the biggest loss is of these besides obvious DTPWAP is "The Weird Little Girl Next Door" I used to love reading that when the Classic Archive was still on the left-hand side.
Still, we'll always have our memories, bitches.
On a personal note, my visual version of "Dialing The Phone With A Pencil: In Pictures" was kind of one of those rare examples where we show what a little community we can be when we want to, and share something a bit personal.
Am so glad we've kind of 'got around' the deletion issue by getting to the point of thread genres like "Underwhelmed" and "Freaks You Work With" and the numerous "Julie" threads which go on forever.
Long Live The DL!
The one about the oyster pancake.\
And the old-timey TV shows thread: Top Hat etc.
All of these - and of course:\
Dog Fucks Baby in the Ass.
These all must be old ''cause I''ve been here daily for over 2 years and don''t remember any of them. I wish we could access the old classics.
The Deb Messing troll is one of my favorites. So perfect, so rare.\
Deb Messing restored my faith in the little Baby Jesus.
Who was that cunt?
The Original Helen Lawson thread. Was that the thread in which we introduced "Helenesque" parfum?\
Golden Girls inconsistencies. Pretty amazing that a thread about a TV show''s chronic inability to retain a story arc could warrant nearly 700 responses.
Blanche''s numerous children with different names and ages
A few years back now the details are sketchy but it was something about a religious black woman was having a shower and sent out a list of expected gifts (expensive gifts like designer purses). I remember somebody linked the thread to where the woman and her friends posted. Anybody else remember that?%0D\
Also the stolen frosting thread was a classic.
I knew a girl who was in the Datalounge Hall of Fame. \
But then she died.
I started coming here in 2004. So far, my absolute favorite threads have been (in order):\
- The guy who bought Claire dinner (keywords: lesbian, steak, bread pudding)\
- The frosting thief -- one girls descent into the dark world of buttercream madness\
- Tie: The Mattie Stepanek and Shiloh Pepin (aka Oprah''s Carnies) threads -- so tasteless, so hilarious\
- 2 guys 1 towel (and some turkey meatballs in the freezer)\
- welcome to my hell: Brenda Dickson gives the little people a lesson in F-list fabulousness\
- Hot (sauce) Mama: Lisa Whelchel shares some godly ways to torture your kids\
Honorable mentions: \
- greetings from kirker''s blog...the gift that keeps on responding\
- Oprah calling!
How could I forget African baby catalogue?! It got me my first two WW acknowledgements on the main page!
I once had a dear friend who knew a girl who was in the Datalounge Hall of Fame.\
And then she died.
The correct format
I like the one about the straight FB who hangs a sheet up as a glory hole and makes the OP bring him roast beef sandwiches.
R60 mentioned on of my threads! Yay!
Massive pussy hound. \
Big Bush supporter.
OMG R97, I REMEMBER THAT
R97 - That was Prophetess Juanita "Jazz Hands" Bynum.
Whomever first said "It makes the Baby Jesus cry", which became a regular DL response.%0D\
[quote] I recall a trick wanting a fresh towel thread. \
I believe it was called , "I''m not running a bed and breakfast here!"\
The poster only owned 2 towels, and his fridge/freezer held only frozen turkey meatballs and tonic water.
I agree, R107, -- plus "Y''all a bunch of hos up in here" and "Cheeto-stained fingers."
I loved the Jenny from billing thread. For at least the first 2/3 it was perfect collaborative fiction describing the hellish life of working in an office.
Another vote for "God, I miss brunch". I''ll never have Eggs Benedict without thinking of it. Actually "holidays sauce" was kind of sweet.
Seriously? No one remembers . . .%0D\
Cut vs. Uncut - maybe 2000 or 2001%0D\
I enjoyed the Golden Globes thread that pondered why Daphne Zuniga was sitting next to Steven Spielberg.
How long do threads stick around on DL? Do they automatically get deleted?
I started this....
Yes, R111, "Holidays sauce" was a lot sweeter than "Parmer John cheese" lol -- not sure what thread *that* was from though.
I actually have a hard copy of "What''s Your favorite Helen Lawson Show?" %0D\
I had printed out the first 30 pages of the original thread to give to a friend that didn''t have a computer at the time. Glad I still have it, because it''s pretty frigging hilarious. Not to mention that it provides a rare glimpse of when threads really could ''take off'' without disintegrating into name calling and in-fighting by page two. %0D\
The thread was created on August 4, 2004.PTD (pre-trolldar,)
Can of frosting.
There is remarkable lack of earrings....caftans....in this thread.
Does anyone remember the thread about Rob (I can''t remember the last name), the most boring man in America?
I remember the Bridget Hilliard thread. Her husband ran two mega-churches. She was having her 50th birthday at a posh hotel and had a list of very expensive gifts that she desired. Some DL person contacted the newspaper and the story caught on in the media.
[quote] I remember the Bridget Hilliard thread. Her husband ran two mega-churches. She was having her 50th birthday at a posh hotel and had a list of very expensive gifts that she desired. Some DL person contacted the newspaper and the story caught on in the media.\
Yes. After that she removed her "suggeasted gift list" from their website.
Sumerian Farmwives, now and forever.
[quote]My all time favorite was ''Purple Safety Helmets Required for Beauty School Short Bus''.\
OMfuckingG! I LOVED that thread. Price Leatherbarrow wrote it. It was all about an elaborate practical joke his beauty school colleagues played on him. They had him convinced that there was a new rule requiring all of them to wear a helmet on the bus ride from the parking lot to the school building. And he wore a purple one. Oh man, that was a FUNNY thread!
9quote0 Was that the thread in which we introduced "Helenesque" parfum?\
That was me in that thread. Thank you for remembering. I''m flattered.
"Does anyone remember the thread about Rob (I can''t remember the last name), the most boring man in America?"\
Was he the one with a fairly new spa?
[R126] details? (Cliff Notes, even?)
Oh, fuck! One of those troublesome tribes of the Israelites just killed all our children and cut open our pregnant women because their nasty god told them to!\

Joey Luft''s Worst Memory
"What''s Your Favorite Helen Lawson Musical" was truly funny and inspired
I read this whole thread to find mentioned the most compelling, schlock-o-rama, lurid, enthralling, elaborate scenario thread ever and nobody has yet to mention it, so I will-%0D\
"I''m in love with my father-in-law"%0D\
Truly extraordinary ; in a class by itself. That est set a standard that no other poster has come close to.%0D\
Shout out to "114 and [...]." %0D\
Honorable mention to "Man dies from fucking a horse."
I''d like to add "Potluck Dinner 1973"
God, I love you people.
"I am so sad, I am crying as I press my stylus into my clay tablet."
R134, those are just gross.
Two of my favorite trolls of all times Junita "Jazz Hands" bynum, and Dee Hall here. To me that is Classic W&W. \
Anytime I even saw "jazz hands" I would end up laughing.
What is EST?
est- elaborate scenario thread. %0D\
The OP posts an outlandish, extraordinary "real" situation to provoke responses.
Dog fucks baby in the ass!
I enjoyed Pee pi, the pig that gpt porked.
I remember some dizzy queen who thought a bichon frise was a ''bitchin'' frizzy''
[R131] thank you...I am wiping the tears away from laughing so hard!\
I think I remember the news event about man fucking horse and dying [R134] - he worked at some big corporation and there was video of it somewhere. Talk about that which has been seen cannot be unseen (I needed a Silkwood shower after that).
the baked potato bar party
Does anyone remember about the one about the dying sister with the retarded son. The uncle was going to be the guardian when the sister died? It was so twisted and unbelievably funny. \
Loved the Temple Grandin Troll!!!!
What am I, chopped liver? I''m even on the DL wiki page!\
r124 - that''s it, thank you! I had a lot of the details wrong but remember that I loved that thread and laughed a lot at it.
r148, they would link a picture of Temple Grandin for Cynthia Nixon''s girlfriend and I always fell for it and clicked on the link.
What was the thread when one guy mentioned a date who was wearing a spangly skirt and smoking crack? It ended with ''lucky lucky me'' or something similar. Loved that one.\
I was riveted by the Dustin Dewind thread. Dustin, what happened? it was years ago.\
Vegan dinner thread was one i started. Event itself was actually pretty mellow and fine overall. Much less drama than DL anticipated but I loved all the responses.
The hapless twink tourist with a suitcase on a roller who got lost in Manhattan: WEHT?
The Ben Affleck in rehab thread was another classic.
There are so many great threads on Datalounge! Now, if we can only stop all the racist, antisemitic ones with the word Jew, Bible, God and Nazi in the titles. These appear to be innocent, but I''ve uncovered lies and propaganda on all of them and it''s sick. There are white supremist sickos infiltrating DL. Maybe they aren''t even gay or aren''t here to be a part of the LGBT community, but rather to try to subtly change thinking patterns and spread their crap.\
love many others of you here though!
F&D noodles webbie!!! That cunt is back. Next thing yoh know she''ll be saying your once upon a time manhood is thin and limp. Oh the horror! I can''t relive those days. F&D her now mommy!!!
It was a fake Noodles, ya stupid cunt. I posted that.
The Official Anti-Noodles Troll!
I adored "Famous Last Words" with Christa McAuliffe asking, "What does this button do?"
OMG, the Sumerian Housewives! That thread was an example of DL''s insanely hilarious powers of collaboration. R131, I love you for posting that!
Let''s Pretend We Are Rich Russian Lady!%0D\
Let''s Cast the Lifetime Original Movie of...%0D\
(also, I wish the Thread Title Mashup threads would stick around...but they always get deleted).
What was Dialing The Phone With A Pencil about? I avoided it and now realize based on these responses that was a mistake.\
My favorite was the turkey meatballs towel guy''s thread.
Okay, I''m going to have to try to find the towel, trick, turkey meatball thread after hearing so much about it! Is it still on DL? \
Is it I''m Not Running a Bed and Breakfast or something?
That''s it, R60.
The guy who sent the video of himself jerking off to his entire phonebook causing his aunt to have a heart attack and his uncle to vomit (or something like that) and was going to skip town in the middle of the night and never show up at work again.
Bridget Hilliard thread...the funniest part was her website had a scrolling comments section and the DL posted all kinds of crazy stuff and it just scrolled and scrolled!!\
I liked DataLounge Land. That thread truly showed the Datalounge posters at their best.
That foot fetish guy who stalked a home-shopping host named Kerry McWhatsit.
I found an article about Bridget Hillard.....sick bitch!
Not sure if it''s been mentioned, but the one about the fat guy who was visiting NYC and going to Splash with his suitcase and looking to find somewhere to sleep was one of my favorites.
All this talk about old threads has Mama looking in her Fashion Bug Plus for a new MuuMuu! These old threads are so dusty that Mama''s Mussy''s leakage is mixing with the dust and creating a foul paste that event Mama''s dog "Poncho" won''t lick up!
Mama--A DL tradition, unfortunately
My vote for best thread title of all time:\
Bitches Turn on Your TV
Thug Duck...Peed myself
Something to the effect of "19th Century TV Shows"\
Dancing with Tsars\
Mother May I Bundle with Percy?
I am a sucker for those "Let''s Pretend" threads.%0D\
Let''s Pretend We Are a Trader Joe''s%0D\
Let''s Pretend We Are a Costco%0D\
One thread that made me cry was the beautiful tribute thread to Lance Loud when he died. :(
Lisa Beamer's chain of stores - Let's Roll Cinnamon Rolls.
I'm sure no one remembers this but the thread about embarrassing toilet experiences. It was the craziest funniest thing I've read. Couldn't stop laughing at all the stories. But the thread, which had hundreds of posts, was deleted.
I started lurking here after that.
A few I enjoyed that haven't been mentioned.
-"Everything I need to know I learned from QAF"
-"Dancing with the Tsars"
-"Nana Mouskouri just called" (way before the Bai Ling thread)
there was also a thread from way back where one word in the titles of movies, books, TV shows and songs was replaced with 'cunt'. It was childish but it brought tears to my eyes.
When you drink a milkshake does it come out as piss or shit?
The most amazing thread to me was a gossip thread about Judging Amy or Gilmore Girls where we were talking about the behind the scenes fights between the showrunner and the star and the showrunner came on to defend herself. Does anyone recall that one?
Say what you will about "Mama" (NOT Momma) but she started MANY everlasting DL memes in here. Much to the chagrin of the Anti-Noodles troll who failed MISERABLY.
The Ginny thread still makes me chuckle when I think of it....is that saved anywhere?
the Deidre Hall thread to me was hilarious.
The crack about Dee insisting that if she played Ada in the remake of AW that she'd contractually wear a dish rag over her shoulder, the technique perfected by the late Connie Ford.
I feel sad they're all gone.I'm sure Let's Create a Jennifer Aniston Movie' will join the Hall of Fame.
Sumerian Housewives was great.
Shitty Little Anne!!!!
[quote]Sumerian Housewives was great.
It was my late partner who died of cancer. Can you believe he'll have been gone for four years soon? I've missed him every waking minute of every single day since he passed away.
I don't know if I ever told you how much your support and caring messages meant to me during those final weeks. They still do.
I'm going back to Maine, where we scattered his ashes, to "be with him" on the anniversary. I have every year.
Thank you all again, from the bottom of my heart.
You are welcome.
[quote]Who[...]ever first said "It makes the Baby Jesus cry", which became a regular DL response
Like most things people think started here, that actually started on the old Television Without Pity forums.
I'm very sorry for your loss, r188. I remember Ken telling us about his condition on the Patrick Swayze thread and how he managed to bring the best about us bitches, which has to be the DL equivalent of climbing the Everest. Know that your partner is fondly remembered even by those who were not lucky to meet him in person.
I remember a thread that was called something like "Broadway Musicals That Closed Out of Town", or something like that. There was one reply that made me spit. It was a failed musical based on "The Miracle Worker" entitled, "It's WATER, Helen!"
I miss Juanita "Jazz Hands" Bynum. Where did she go?
A couple obscure ones that tickled me: the field trip to the Christian board, Lourdes and Rocco speak French so Madonna won't understand them, free refills on soda, any Larry King thread, footless roller coaster girl, and let's make a Jennifer Aniston movie.
The field trip to the Christian board reminded me of the DL field trip to the UK newspaper website where all the Eurofraus were cluck-clucking over the Madeleine McCann case. They went BONKERS.
I also loved the group autobiographies -- there was one on Star Jones' wedding day ("The Marriage of Bigaro") and the "Rosie Dearest" book that was supposedly being written by Rosie's kids in 2021.

Lee Anne DeVette started a thread entitled "The Little Bitch Had it Coming" -- and the whole board went wild.

indeed, VERY funny poster
"Celebrity Fragrances" was genius.
I remember "Still" by Christopher Reeve.
Wasn't Juanita "Jazz Hands" Bynum the same guy who created Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian?
I liked the more recent ones like "Datalounge's Favorite Mystery Novels" and "Datalounge's Favorite Memoirs."
Too funny all
A thread that I started in 2002 keeps getting mentioned in the DL Hall of Fame threads. It's interesting to note that people still remember.
Hall of Famer: Patty Duke rules.
The recent thread about Datalounge if it existed in the 80s was great too. I love those kind of creative threads.
