Subject: New board - Name ideas wanted

Written By: ChuckyG on 02/10/08 at 10:31 pm

We're going to start a new board for old grey threads in the PPP.  Anything over 6 months old, still active with more than a dozen replies a week are going to be moved to a special board to allow new threads in the PPP to flourish and allow the regulars to continue to hang out in their favorite old threads.

Keeping with the whole penguin theme, and the alliteration in the PPP board name, I think it should mention the walruses mentioned in the PPP board description, and be at least three words long.

Walrus Waylaid Writings is my suggestion

That on is cool. We could call it the WWWW for short (like the PPP). With a lot of these we will probably call the WWW which a lot of people will mistaken for the World Wide Web.  :D ;D ;D  Of course we could call it the World Wide Walrus.  :-\\

How about The Walrus and the Carpenter (yeah as in Lewis Carroll)

I like the reference to I am the Egg Man. (I think Red Ant had that one).

I'm assuming with are keeping with this walrus theme. We could have something like:

In the 1980 Playboy interview, John responded to the confusion:

"I threw the line in — 'the Walrus was Paul' — just to confuse everybody a bit more. And I thought 'Walrus' has now become me, meaning 'I am the one.' Only it didn't mean that in this song."

Walrus, Paul, confusing. It sound about right?

Speaking of which, less than three weeks ago, this was some backwater story (and I'm talking Internet backwaters) about some wacky celebrity video being yanked off YouTube.  Planetary turnout for last weekend's 02-10-08 protests was OVER NINE THOUSAND.  Here's 100 or so from London:

http://images.encyclopediadramatica.com/images/0/03/AnonymousLondonPanorama1.jpg

And how does a UFO cult with a billion dollars, an small army of copyright lawyers, and a fetish for 60s naval bureaucracy deal with a bunch of afro-coiffed breakdancers who wear Guy Fawkes masks while singing Rick Astley songs?  It runs and hides, taking surveillance video from behind poorly-disguised clapped-out Frosty ice vans and in sending a few goons with shockingly poor tradecraft to try and follow some of the anonymous protestors to their vehicles in an attempt to get new targets for harassment.  EPIC FAI--wait, this isn't a FAIL thread about some silly UFO cult, it's a walrus thread!

OK, it's really a sea lion, but it's close enough to a LOLrus for my purposes.

I thought about Wall to Walruses but then I noticed that I needed a 3rd "W" and it was late so I think I really meant "Wall to Wall Walruses"  I like that better too and I'm sure that what I was actually thinking did not translate correctly to what I was actually typing.  So my suggestion is "Wall to Wall Walruses".
