I guess the writers of Nemesis never went to this restaurant

    Around here, if the first post of a thread contains only a link and nothing else, it's often thought to be spam. That's what the moderator was trying to tell you.

    In the Pacific Northwest (America) it's pronounced "buuh forr."

    And rude people write things like that.

    I didn't click on the link.
    Correct me if you must, but I would assume that writers spend a lot of time in restaurants. They get as hungry as non writers do.

    What, writers don't have kitchens?

    I thought writers always called the local sandwich shop for delivery. That's what Rob and Buddy and Sally did on The Dick Van Dyke Show.

    If they are high enough up the pecking order they get the runner to goto the sandwich shop.

    Thank you, Melakon. That was precisely my point. I clicked on and got the joke. However, it simply isn't wise to post a link without further comment.

    They helped keep Klinger employed after he got back from Korea. ;)

    I guess the writers of Nemesis think we are a bunch of morons!


    I often wonder if this movie was written as bad as it was just so they could kill the TNG crew story line...

    Joke's not really that funny in the first place (says a member of MENSA).

    It's a jab at text speak.

    Sorry gotta disagree. The joke is a picture, has to be a link because if I post the picture itself I'm told it's bandwidth theft. If one has to explain a joke it's not funny, so just I wrote a title contextualizing it to Star Trek, I never thought anyone would be so dumb as to suppose it's a restaurant ad. And btw it's hard to come with new topics or jokes about a movie that's 10+ years old and not very good, if all posts must be brilliant so this board risks turning into a frozen desert. Loose the tie.

    Agreed. It's rather lacking in subtlety, as well (says a member of the Loyal Order of the Moose).

    :D

    You didn't contextualize it enough. A better explanation is required in the future if you want to do something like this again.
