So this is what we get instead of the repeat Windows story?
2005-01-06 07:22:28 AM  
Why does it go to Yahoo?
2005-01-06 07:22:43 AM

MODERATOR: Yo, Drew, wassup?
DREW: Zzzzzzzz...
MOD: Drew?
DREW: Zzzzzzz...
DREW: Whu? Wha? What time is it?
MOD: About 9am.
DREW: Jesus, you'd better have a good reason for waking me up before 4pm, man. Where's my beer?
MOD: Here, I got you a cold one.
DREW: Uh-oh...
MOD: What?
DREW: What is it? What do you want?
MOD: What do you mean?
DREW: We have to go through the charade again, huh?
MOD: What? I just bought you your morning beer?
DREW: Which means...
MOD: Why does it mean something? Why can't I just bring you a beer?
DREW: Beats me, man, but every time you do, you want something.
MOD: Oh, you're so cynical.
DREW: So you don't want anything? You woke me up for no reason and bought me a beer just for fun?
MOD: Welll....
DREW: Exactly. Let's hear it then.
MOD: Well, you remember we were talking at that party last week?
DREW: Not really.
MOD: Well we were, and we were having a great time.
DREW: Sure we were.
MOD: What?
DREW: Nothing, get the fark on with it.
MOD: Well remember me saying that I had to go out on Thursday morning?
DREW: Nope.
MOD: Oh. Well, I do.
DREW: And...?
MOD: Well, who's going to run the site while I'm gone?
DREW: What, haven't you organised some cover then?
MOD: No, that's why I spoke to you.
DREW: So you're farking off and leaving me in the lurch. AGAIN.
MOD: There's got to be someone we can leave to run the site, it's just for a couple of hours.
DREW: I dunno, man, look what happened last time.
MOD: I know.
DREW: I can still see that pickle when I close my eyes. I don't think I'll ever recover from that.
MOD: I know. How many times do I have to apologise?
DREW: I'm just sayin', that's all.
MOD: So, what do we do?
DREW: Hmm, tricky. You're gone for how long?
MOD: About 4 hours.
DREW: So we need someone responsible enough to moderate the conversations, witty enough to pick the best of the day's stories, and smart enough to take any flack from those goddamn Farkers.
MOD: Those bastards.
DREW: Agreed. So, any candidates?
MOD: Afraid not. I can't find anyone to fill in.
DREW: Hmm... I know - wait here.
DREW: Aha! Here you go!
MOD: That's an envelope.
DREW: Correct.
MOD: Anything in it?
DREW: Nope.
MOD: What do we do with it?
DREW: Well, we staple it to your chair and put it in front of your monitor.
MOD: I see. And then what?
DREW: That's it.
MOD: So let me get this straight...
DREW: Shoot.
MOD: My replacement... is an empty envelope?
DREW: Correct.
MOD: You feel that an empty envelope can do my job as well as I can?
DREW: Correct.


MOD: Fair enough, see you later.
DREW: Mm-hmm... Zzzzzzz....


DREW: MOD! Get your ass in here!
MOD: What? What?
DREW: Look at the main page! LOOK AT IT!
MOD: What?
DREW: That farking envelope! It's greenlit 3 of the worst stories I've ever seen - look! Two about Windows crashing (like THAT'S ever news) and one about the guy who invented the bundt pan dying! This is a catastrophe!
MOD: Umm...
DREW: What? Don't tell me you need more time off...
MOD: Noooo....
DREW: Well? Spit it out man!
MOD: Well it's just that... I didn't go out this morning.
DREW: What?
MOD: I've been here all day.
DREW: You mean...?
MOD: That's right. No envelope.


DREW: Oh. Carry on then.

The funeral will be at 3:50 for 20 minutes.
2005-01-06 07:53:31 AM  
well it was a good headline...
2005-01-06 07:55:04 AM  
Someone post a recepie for monkey bread. It r0x0rz when it's cooked in a bundt pan.
2005-01-06 07:58:56 AM  
LMAO dukefluke!!!

Made my day.
2005-01-06 08:01:53 AM  
Maybe I'll get out my Bundt pan and make one of my Wild Turkey Bourbon Cakes in honor of Mr. Dahlquist.
2005-01-06 08:30:40 AM  
No My Big Fat Greek Wedding references yet?
2005-01-06 08:40:17 AM  
His toothpick, when inserted in the middle, came out clean. He must be done.
2005-01-06 08:42:06 AM  
OT: Do you mean to tell me we have to endure an entire day of looking at a dude in the left gutter personals ad?

Where's my farking adblock... ahh.. there it is.
2005-01-06 08:43:25 AM  
dukefluke - that was some damn funny shiat!!

oh, and I love bundt cakes!

RIP bundt guy
2005-01-06 08:45:05 AM  
I love the part in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where she puts a flower in a vase in the centr of the bundt cake. Classic.
2005-01-06 08:49:03 AM  
Then in 1966, a Texas woman won second place in the Pillsbury Bake-Off for her Tunnel of Fudge Cake...

Tunnel of fudge...hehe.
2005-01-06 08:55:21 AM  
exactly why this got the green light... tunnel of fudge...hehehe..he said fudge

Fell In Love With a Chair:

Someone post a recepie (sic) for monkey bread. It r0x0rz when it's cooked in a bundt pan.

Ironically I just had Monkey Bread about two weeks ago. Why is it called Monkey bread? And how much butter is in it to cause me to not stop eating it?
2005-01-06 09:15:40 AM  
It got the GREEN LIGHT because the headline was clever

/get over it (and youselves).
2005-01-06 09:22:27 AM  
"This thread has a HOLE in it!"

\BFGW reference
2005-01-06 09:33:03 AM  
Bah, I deride the article. There are way more 9x13 pans out there than bundt pans, it's just you can do a lot more than cake with them.
2005-01-06 09:37:22 AM  
I thought it was empty in the middle, not filled with good stuff?

My uncle once got his head stuck in the middle of a bundt cake pan.
2005-01-06 10:22:05 AM  
I heep seeing these these ads for thr "bake n fill" cake pan, sort of a bundt with the hole concealed to be filled with ice cream and such.

But it sounds like they're saying "bacon filled" cake.

Mmmmmmmm, bacon filled cake...
2005-01-06 10:35:21 AM  
And all my life I thought Bundt cake had a hole in the middle of it!
2005-01-06 11:16:26 AM  
You folks obviously don't know the power and glory that is BUNDT!

Also, here is a little known recipe for magic: Bake a bundt cake and time it so the cake comes out of the oven at exactly 11:11 (am or pm) - if done properly, you get to make a wish and it *will* come true.

Another way to do this is to bake a bundt cake at any time of day on November 11th. Works like a charm.
2005-01-06 11:17:42 AM  
actually your Bundt hole had a cake around it!
2005-01-06 11:30:28 AM  
Who said this is a clever headline???

[image from too old to be available]

A Bundt cake, as has been previously stated, is empty in the middle.
2005-01-06 11:36:59 AM  
What is monkey bread?
2005-01-06 11:42:16 AM  
Great headline!

Bundt cakes are teh gross.

Brratt's "Bundtkakke" cake doesn't add to the appeal.
2005-01-06 12:29:44 PM  
brratt - A Bundt cake, as has been previously stated, is empty in the middle. If there's a hole, it's no longer a "part" of either the PAN or the Cake.

/hates logical fallacies
2005-01-06 12:44:17 PM  
A bun....BOONT...BOOONTE....

No no Bundt...





/there happy how?
2005-01-06 12:45:14 PM  
or now?
2005-01-06 01:02:38 PM  

The headline is appropriate and funny, because Bundt cakes often have a yummy filling surrounded by cake.

This trend started, I believe, with the aforementioned "Tunnel Of Fudge" recipe.
2005-01-06 02:39:14 PM  
I havent made it since i was a kid, but it's sweet bread dough that's been rolled in butter, cinnamon, and sugar, and carmelizes when it's cooked. it's chewy and crispy and soft and buttery.

;_; where's that recipe? The thread's over...

I may never eat a bundt cake again, thanks to you... tunnel of fudge....

Do you think they'll creamate his ashes into a cake, slice him up into little pieces and wrap each piece in saran wrap?
