Irrelevant comment about wigs. Metatextual paradox.

Quizzical expression upon seeing popularity of thread. Muttering of disbelief that established format is still being followed.

Expression of gratitude for PHJ's sympathy, and appropriate expressions of approval (with relevant textual sound effects) for pulchritude of PHJ's feline. Comment comparing past calico felines who have lived with this poster, noting the tendency for this type of cat to be either stupid and affectionate or smart and crotchety.

Excitement over having stuck an animal with a needle for the first time today. Acknowledgement that only a vet tech student would be excited about this.

Irrelevant post made for no other reason than to claim more than 80% of the "Last post by" spots on the front page of the forums.

Rhetorical self-admonishment.

Amused observation regarding new member titles. Amused emoticon.

Statement expressing that this poster had not noticed the new member titles, but is amused and highly pleased with the new one bestowed by Zeke. Expression of gratitude to the previous poster for pointing them out. (Parenthetical expression of gratitude to Zeke for the new title.) Various statements referencing Joss Whedon, Dr. Horrible, firefly, several characters Nathan Fillion has played, and affection fan nicknames for the latter.

Relevant link to TV critic Alan Sepinwall's summer reviews of firefly. Praise of Mr. Sepinwall's previous work, analytical prowess, geek cred, and employment by this poster's local newspaper.

Unnecessary reference to "Hammer Time" (with aside denoting sadness at the lack of connection to the concept of "Hammerspace").

Delight that reference was caught. Six or seven gratuitous quotes.

Syntax dispute re: Firefly, which is not a special little snowflake.

Lengthy reference to poet e.e. cummings and his disdain for capital letters. Parallel reference to singers k.d. lang and will.i.am. Link to screencap of title card clearly displaying lowercase initial f. Statement querying whether previous poster has some personal issues vis-à-vis typographic creativity.

Tangential comment, complete with bad "valley girl" impression, containing the implications that (1) undercapitalization was a signature feature of the last decade of the twentieth century AD and that (2) contemporary usage should be avoided.

Inconsequential statement that poster's feline shares an appellation with knitted woolen hand-coverings.

Link.

Refusal to call 5MFY "5Mf", even if it's shorter.

Carat. Admission of own expectation of a particular spelling bee scene, along with link and a brief explanation of vague reasoning behind expectation.

Today's date in M/DD/YY format.

Theatrical shuddering and screaming.

Faint chuckle regarding numerical connection cited above. Notation that a similar occurrence in relation to an album by the band Yes will be in just a hair less than 15 years.

Pointless thread revival. Expression of alarm at number of notifications on profile.
