The FOREST, CORAL may not be the funniest headline all year.  But it was hands down the funniest thread.
I couldn't read the entire thing without laughing like a mental patient.  I had to do it in steps.

Then I sent the link to my son.  Over dinner we were bouncing the jokes around.  My wife and daughter were like, "what the hell is wrong with you two?"

That.  Was.  Awesome!

It was great, but I question whether the meme will have staying power to still be funny when the HotY contest starts next November.

I agree. I was giggling like a loon while reading the thread. I can't remember the last time a thread made me laugh so much.
