It’s another open thread but I’m afraid I can’t think of a specific name for it at this point in time!
Charles Schulz, who drew the Peanuts comic strip, had a yearly April Fool strip which was always the same scenario: Lucy would pretend to hold a football (a wrongly shaped American football, not a proper football, but whatever) for Charlie Brown to kick and then pull it away at the last minute. Every year there was a different punchline. In an interview Schulz said that every year he was afraid that he wouldn’t be able to think of a new punchline, and that although so far he had managed it it was getting harder and harder.
Well, that is where I am with naming the open threads, and I’ve only been writing for PP for a year or so.
But then again I have to think of a name for the open thread every two weeks, whereas Schulz only had to draw the April Fool’s Day strip once a year.
So I’m not really sure what point I’m trying to make. But here is an open thread. The usual rules apply: happy stuff, people. No politics, no racism, no arseholery in any way shape or form. I reserve the right to delete any comments that contravene the rules, and also to hack your legs off with blunt instruments. (No, seriously. I run a tight ship here. I believe in discipline. And I have found that the only way to teach people not to spoil the open thread is to hack off their limbs. It’s the only language you people understand.)
So – to the open thread! But I repeat: no politics, nastiness or miserable stuff. Not if you value your extremities.
