Wheelie Thread?

What the hell happened to the wheelie thread?

Can't we just lock these threads in the future instead of having them vanish?

wow. I didn't even know about that thread.

fat people alone can carry a thread. (they carry a whole forum here.)

Same applies to cake.

fat people + cake = thread win.


sounds like a great thread.

The wheelie thread got deleted I guess because it got rather Foo-ish out in its 5+ pages and waaaayyyyyy off-topic. I do not know who decided to delete it; it was not me.

Is it my imagination or does gastro look a little, er, "fitter" in Doug's sig? I didn't know Doug was also into the whole extreme makeover thing.

Wasn't my call; won't speculate as to why it was trashed instead of just locked.

Just your imagination. Resized proportionately with my shift key, I promise. I have been known to make caught fish bigger and other such 'enhancements' though.

I know; I did too; but some efforts just aren't enough to pull a thread back from the edge
