I've never demanded anyone have a sombrero or not. For as long as I choose, I shall keep my purple-ness and sombrero-ness.
I'm a combat veteran who also survived Hollywood. I'll survive this, too.
I think your avatar is adorable.

Just because you're not in on a joke, that doesn't mean it isn't funny.
Precisely. Some things are funny without need of explanation... which is good, because I tried to understand the original thread and got completely lost. But I finally have my own sombrero avatar now, and I'm keeping it for as long as it amuses me.
Thank you. Someone made if for me (I'm not that talented.)

Agreed. Not to mention verging on pathetic given how long it lasted.

Sort of like telling the same joke 30 times a day for a month. An unfunny in the first place joke!


What a shock! Kpnuts doesn't think something's funny.

Now I'm going to have to keep a sombrero avatar forever.

I'd vote for that. We've got a seven-page argument going over whether the TOS command shirts were green or gold. If we don't latch onto another silly meme in a hurry, we're liable to have a forum lockdown over whether "The Menagerie" counts as one episode or two...

Two threads with people complaining...sorry whining about hating the avatars and they end up making more people have the avatars
Yeah, I'd only been on the Sombreroprise funride for a couple of weeks, but I was okay with changing back...until all the ruckus started. That did it.

i thought about posting this in a certain thread in misc but maybe this is best.

KIRK; All right. About Landru.
REGER: There was madness. Convulsions. The world was destroying itself. Landru was our leader. He saw the truth. He changed the board. He took us back, back to a simple time. A time of peace and tranquility. A time without sombrero’s.
KIRK: What happened to him?

KIRK: You said you wanted freedom.
Its time you learned that freedom is never a gift. It has to be earned
. Come on. We're going to find Landru.


LANDRU: Despite my efforts to save you, you have invaded the Body and you are causing great harm with your sombrero ways. Your time was past.

KIRK: We have no intention of causing harm.

LANDRU: Obliteration is necessary.
The sombrero infection is strong.
For the good of the body of the board, you must die, the sombrero must vanish.

KIRK: We do not intend to die nor give up our sombreros.

LANDRU: All who saw you and your sombreros,
all who know of your presence here must be excised.
The memory of the Body of the board will be cleansed.
The board will return to normal and will be as if the sombrero never restored.

LANDRU: The body is. It exists. It is healthy. It has not need of a sombrero.

KIRK: The body is dying. You are destroying it. You have destroyed the fun.
Fun is a fundamental factor of life. Fun is creativity in the mind of the individual.
….
LANDRU: Do you ask a question?
KIRK: What have you done to do justice to the full potential of every individual of the Body?
LANDRU: Insufficient data.
KIRK: Without freedom of choice, there is no creativity.
People must be free to express their creativity as they see fit.
Without creativity, there is no life. The body dies. The fault is yours.

SPOCK: Are you aiding the body, or are you destroying it?
Has your battle against the soul of the sombrero destroyed the body of the board.?

LANDRU: I am not programmed to answer that question.


LANDRU: Peace, order, and tranquility are maintained. The body lives, but I reserve creativity to me. I determine how creativity will be expressed.
No more sombreros when I determine.
I control creativity, I decide what is humor.

SPOCK: Then the body dies. Creativity is necessary for the health of the Body.
The freedom to express ones sense of creativity as the individual desires is necessary.

LANDRU: This is impossible.

KIRK: You must create the good. That is the will of Landru, nothing else.
LANDRU: But there is evil.
KIRK: Then the evil must be destroyed. That is the Prime Directive. And you are the evil. You will not allow the wearing of the sombrero; the desire to create as an individual. To allow the ones to find their own humerous path.
Loved. This.

The OP has now not only restored the Sombrero to his avatar, but now added a second one to boot. Change them back indeed. Preposterous insanity.

We all know it counts as 3 episodes! 2 part Menagerie + 1 part The Cage = 3 episodes total!
Do the math people!!!!!!
