Hmmm. I wonder if this super-terrific turtle thread has actually farked all of the servers upon which the turtle-punny pics were found. Little red x's all 'round.

Long live ISAT!

Here's a chorus for the I Saw A Turtle song. Somebody make up some verses.

Four Seven Four ...
Three Three Five

Got my gal a turtle, (bah-dah dah-dum)
Thought shed make some soup for me.

Yeah, I said I brought my gal a snappin turtle,
Now Im sad as I can be.

Soons she saw that turtle,
Said, Boy you gotta let that turtle be.

She took that turtle from me, (bah-dah dah dum)
Went and found a bush where I cant see.

Yeah she took that turtle from me,
And there she set that turtle free.

Im startin to have suspicions,
Them two snappers commenced to have a par-ty.

I think someone did some pruning of borken images, comments are down to 1906.

As for the turtle song:

I saw the turtle and it opened up my eyes
I saw the turtle
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the turtle and it opened up my eyes,
I saw the turtle
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong

/to the tune of - The Sign (Ace of Base)

Maybe Patron Saint was the wrong term: the 2000th post should come from the valedictorian, first in his thread, the "boobies" (sic) himself:

Four more than several months ago, our forefarkers brought forth in this cyberspace a new turtle, conceived in levity and dedicated to the proposition that all posts must create a sequel.

Now we are engaged in a thread of great and civil yore, testing whether that turtle, or any turtle so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great monument
to that thread. We have come to dedicate a portion of that bandwidth as a final jesting place for images who here gave their vibes that the turtle might endure.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot masticate, we cannot cerebrate, we cannot hollow this turtle. The brave scribes who have chortled here have cerebrated it far above Mods poor power to add or delete.

The world will little note nor long remember what we display here, but it can never forget whats been done here. It is for us, the jiving, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work, which they who wrote here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from this honored thread we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of commotion--that we here highly resolve that this turtle shall not have been rhymed in vain, that the turtle shall have a new birth of gleedom, and that a turtle of the farkers, by the farkers, for the farkers shall not perish from the mirth.

‘’ 2003-10-14 09:44:16 PM  
I am awed, Cardinal . That was the greatest speech ever given in a Fark thread.

And the best part is, if you put the emphasis on the second syllable of your name, you nearly almost rhyme with turtle!

...closer than a lot of the entries, at least.
‘’ 2003-10-14 10:01:23 PM  
Dang, this is a long thread.

I have to agree with pkjun. That was amazing, Cardinal.

Is there any way to figure out for sure how many posts are in a thread? Just wondering, turtlelike and all.

Holy Fark, Cardinal.

Truly, that was the best, most poetic, most inspirational thing ever posted. May we all rally around this speech, and keep this thread going FOREVER!
