Celebration!!!

Postby Formendacil » Thu Dec 11, 2008 12:01 am

I've been a member of Classic-Castle for over 4 years now, and I've made a few posts. Okay, a lot of posts. In fact, with this post, that total has now come to 4000. It just so happens that Robin Hood and Elephant Knight (my brothers) noticed this coming and made a big deal about it... so I decided to mark this milestone with something, but, as usual, I haven't got much LEGO at college to build MOCs with, or much time--but I do have a bit of LEGO, and a digital camera. In honour of the occasion, therefore, I am submitting a one week series of hopefully humourous comics.

The first:

Party time! Woo Hoo! I was going to post your very first post here, and make you all embarrassed at how poorly you wrote. Unfortunatly, the quality wasn't much different from your latest one. So I guess one can argue that all 4000 of these posts have been quality ones. I wouldn't, but one could. Congrats anyway, its good to see you make one last milestone.

4000?! Wow! That's a lot. Especially since you've never been the kind to post needlessly. You are amazing, my friend, amazing. But Bruce is closing in fast. He only has 15 to go! ;)

Congrats,
Josh

Wooo 4000 :) Excellent number! And I have to agree with Josh, for the life of me I can't remember a single off-topic post you made. Although Dan did point out that in 4000 posts you've learnt nothing :P
I kid I kid, congrats on this milestone!

You've always been in that special little part of my heart reserved for those who were there to welcome me when I joined CC. You were a bit scary at first of course, with all your Tolkienesque geekiness but now it seems I've fallen into the same abyss of nerdiness anyhow... and in part I think it's your fault, a fact that I do owe you thanks for ;)

Oh, and nice little comic strip there, keep 'em coming!

Thank you, everyone, for your congratulations. Obviously, I enjoy hanging around here, even after all this time.

There is an error in your comic.
If your first comic was in celebration of your 4000th post, your second comic couldn't possibly be your 4000th post as well.
Therefor Breakjaw is celebrating your 4001st post.

6110. That is how many posts us three have on the forum. At this moment at least.

This is what I get for setting up a Christmas tree instead of looking on the forum.

Oh well.

Great comics oldest-but-not-biggest brother! I am having a hard time which one is better right now. I am really looking forward to when you get home so Sheepy can meet another Fabuland Fig.

Congrats on your 4000th post. Or 4001st. Well, a large number of them. You've always been a great poster and a Tolkien fan I respect alot being one myself. Will you get a prize at 5000?

Last I checked, you weren't a minifig, but maybe Josh just can't believe there's three LEGO-crazy brothers in the same family, on the same forum... Or maybe he thinks someone was supposed to kill you so that I could inherit your collection (if so, Josh, then your assassin appears to have got lost).

Aliencat: Who ever said one had to celebrate a post during the post? It's like a long weekend: only one day is the remarkable holiday, but you party the whole time.
