Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

Glancing at the Forum Pages of Misc. Past, several great thread title orders lie frozen and preserved, their delicate appearance forever avoiding being necro'd by someone with a hyperactive search function:




And one last recent modern classic - quite an apt one:

Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

On a related note, also often amusing (well, perhaps except to the person involved) is the combination of a single thread title and an imaginative username - sometimes unfortunately so.

I'd post a few examples, but I might end up causing offence...

Not as funny as some of the others, but I still enjoyed it.

Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

I have a bunch of these I've saved over the years, I'll dig mine up.

Also, hmm I seemed to be in a bunch of these already.

Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

I'll start off with a classic 'Serendipitous' movie marquee...









^ lotta Sheep in that one. Insert your own joke here...



Shortened thread titles on the main page can also be quite amusing...

Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

... as I mentioned before, the combination of thread title and username is in itself full of comedy potential:
