Since this board does not lock avatars and .sigs with the posts we should have a place to record them for joy. This could be that place.

Also remember you need to actually post your avatars and sigs in your message text or they won't be saved.

I'd start but I don't remember my old sigs. That's why I'm starting this thread. Maybe this'll be more of an ebenezer thing.

there were some excellent avatars from the old board that ruled.
ive noticed that this board has a size limit to the avatars, which sucks.
i also noticed that i could post my last.fm stats as my sig.

this is an excerpt from a pic somebody posted and I thought it was funny.


"I wish you were my alias."

recent vinylmartyr quote. before that I had "I got all hopped up on demerol and grape soda" which is from that Wii video, in adam's honor of course.








NOTE: yablo is going through various phases of Tom-worship and has taken my avatar & sig as his own. Don't settle for cheap imitations.

Good point. Is this a cry for help, John? Do you not feel you're "official" enough for us?

Why is the shake rocking out harder when he is in the body of the message than when he is your avatar?

Fatigue, I imagine. The avatar has been rocking much longer than the message has.

I am afraid of Tessa.

It's possible I've been using this same avatar since joining this board. It is a baby seal on it's back that I saw posted on a different board and there were hilarious comments and it makes me laugh.

My current sig quotes Yorkie:

I feel like it was mentioned on SNL. Or maybe that was a post on here. Who knows?

And because I was confused it totes make sense to post current avatars and sigs because after you've changed them you forget.

This is the only avatar I have had on this board. Hooray for Spacemen 3.

My signatures have included Ben telling me everything I say reeks of confidence or something (the ultimate case of the pot calling the kettle black), Dani making a Gobi/Go Pee joke, and Pot making a comment on Rodney King to get out of jury duty.

This is Light Leaks by Dennis Sibeijn. If I had no soul I'd lie and say I did it myself. DAMN YOU SOUL! Anyway, I'll probably get a new avatar soon cuz the smaller size just doesn't do it justice.

The best sig ever was one Yablo used...it was taken from a story Jennie told about her co-workers staring at her while she ate and the sig was "I know how to eat soup bitch"...

I had a sig that I loved almost as much that was from an article someone posted written about the Guns and Roses song "Sweet Child O' Mine"...I couldn't tell if the person writing the article was dead serious or if they were playing the biggest in-joke ever...but the article was a thing of beauty...I need to track it down again and make the one line my sig again...

My favorite signature of my own was

"I'm so hip that I'm connected to the leg bone."

What made it so much worse and therefore so much better was the fact that I made it up and said it about myself. I think that's irony....or something.

My sig is a quote from someone on the boards last year. Any links as to who might have posted this would be awesome. It's become such a sweet rebuttal for my fellow robot hating friends.
