    Ahem, yes Lottie, you have comment number 2,000. And no, they’re red. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aha! Fantastic – I was wrong. There was a little comment sitting in my Approval queue from Paddy In England. He got in there ahead of you, Lottie. ๐Ÿ˜†

    Crap – now I have to come up with a prize for Paddy. I’m not sure the cake would survive a trip with An Post, never mind Royal Mail. I’ll come back to you…

    (well now I am ignoring you….)

  12. Darrenon 20 Oct 2008 at 4:48 pm

    @Lottie Why are you ignoring me? I actually have a Happy Monday present for you. You don’t want it?

  13. Davidon 20 Oct 2008 at 4:49 pm

    “a Happy Monday present”

    Is that what the kids are calling it these days?


  14. Lottieon 20 Oct 2008 at 4:52 pm

    I was doing something all technical by trying to edit my comment but goddammit I am such a klutz.

    I take it back. PRSSSSSIIIIIIEEEEE!

    I was about to start combing through the source code looking at the comment number anchors, before I realised that spam and deleted comments would have bloated that number.

    Plus it already seems to have been won.

  16. Joon 20 Oct 2008 at 5:17 pm

    Prizes are the way forward. I may start doing prizes.

  17. Darrenon 20 Oct 2008 at 5:18 pm

    @Chris When you include spam, etc. your comment is number 4,895. Congrats! ๐Ÿ˜€

    No prize though!

  18. Darrenon 20 Oct 2008 at 5:19 pm

    @Jo Can I have a prize for inspiring it?

  19. benon 20 Oct 2008 at 6:09 pm

    does this mean that i’ve lost…again?

  20. Yer Manon 20 Oct 2008 at 7:01 pm

  21. Xbox4NappyRashon 20 Oct 2008 at 7:32 pm

    Paddy in England!

    I guessed it. I win.

  22. Maxi Caneon 20 Oct 2008 at 9:39 pm

    I’m not saying I’m the winner, but there was once when I was growing up that I had a chance to win a competition and I was in for a really good chance.
    I had to make a three point basketball shot, actually I had to make three of them and I had made two already.

    My palms were sweaty, my heart was racing and the whole school was watching.

    Then, just as I bent my knees in preparation there came a voice from the crowd:

    “He’s got a boner!”

    I looked down just as the crowd collectively wet themselves with laughter at witnessing my first prepubescent erection.

    I obviously didn’t make the shot and have been afraid of competitions ever since. And erections.

    No pressure though!

  24. B'dum B'dum B'dum B'd-on 21 Oct 2008 at 1:03 am

  25. Lottieon 21 Oct 2008 at 9:36 am

  26. Maxi Caneon 21 Oct 2008 at 10:22 am

    I’ll never win anything, and now I’ve got an erection.

  27. PaddyInEnglandon 21 Oct 2008 at 10:47 am


  28. Darrenon 21 Oct 2008 at 11:07 am

    @Ben Looossseeeerrrrrr!!!!

    @YerMan Get back in your box!

    @Xbox Damn you and your clever shoes. Yes, well, perhaps I should have worded it better…

    @Maxi Back in school, a classmate of mine was called up to the front of the class to read something out. He couldn’t work out why we were laughing so much. Not only did he have an erection, but his fly was down and his shirt was sticking out. When he finally looked down it got worse…

    …he popped out. We were all crying our eyes out, laughing so hard. Even the teacher was in bits. He never lived it down. Everyone in the class had seen his jolly roger. ๐Ÿ˜†

    @PaddyB Sit down there and don’t hurt yourself.

    @B’Dum Yep! I was hoping I might win the prize.

    @Paddy I’ll drop you a mail later to organise your local bakery to make you some face cake. ๐Ÿ˜€

  29. Peteron 21 Oct 2008 at 11:13 am

  30. PaddyInEnglandon 21 Oct 2008 at 11:30 am

  31. le craicon 21 Oct 2008 at 12:21 pm
