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:

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...

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...







Sometimes some pics are just in the right position

Re: Serendipitous Thread Order

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