Another Goodby . . . this time from me.
« on: December 02, 2012, 12:10:00 PM »
After looking through some of the Goodby threads, I thought that this may be time for one of my own.  So, I am going to say goodby to all of you and go play World of Tanks for a while.  You all can feel free to tell me how much you love me and will miss me, but make it quick.  I will be back on later this evening.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al

Post of the Year nomination (for the OP, but Asteriktos' quoting of the classic Paul Simon song "You Can Call Me Al" is a nice touch)!

No, his post indicates that he is not leaving us. Also consider where it's coming from. On this forum, Punch is the king of satire. He will be back. He even said so.

You need a oc.net iPhone app with push notifications then you can be comforted by the womb of the community all night.

Was that a promise, or a threat?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
