    Wait, Stryder Wolfe... are you implying that we're on the 15th page of this thread, and NONE of it makes sense? That's just plain silly... Allow me to go back and recap -- that way if anyone is just joining us, they don't need to go back and re-read:

    9/4/02 - Greg (GLUE) starts this thread becuase he, and Keith and I were just jabbering away and disrupting "serious" conversation on Muppet Central. There was some talk of lunch, a few Swedish Chef references, and then Horn yelled at us and made us go back to work. Everyone else mocked us.

    Later the same day, Horn left for a long weekend, so we came back to the message boards. I then announced the 20 new rules that were to be followed in Mike's absence. Mindless chatter ensued, and everyone disregarded the rules. We announced our intentions to make the "Palisades Lunch Break" thread longer than the stupid "Ask Ken" thread. No one rallied behind us. crickets chirpping, tumbleweeds, etc.

    I posted for a while after work, and was informed by Crazy Harry that we were pathetic for spending our lunch breaks writing on message boards. Let the records show that Crazy Harry mis-spelled pathetic...

    Matleo pointed out a contradiction in my 20 rules. He was right; I was wrong. But I made up some kind of crazy excuse to justify it.

    9/5/02 - Keith is excited that people posted in our little thread overnight -- like a gift frm the tooth fairy. More discussion about the 20 rules. At lunch, no one is posting. Keith, craving attention, begs shamelessly for people to come and chat with him. Vanilla Ice references abound. Crazy Harry gets hostile. I make an empty threat to stop making Muppet figures. No one even feigns concern, becuase they know I am an idiot.

    Keith makes a stupid sexual reference. Greg gets mauled by a chimpanzee.

    I move Lu775's fantastic dancing Travis stories (episodes 1 & 2) over from another thread. Because they're funny. And I am an ego maniac.

    Greg, Keith, and I have a pointless discussion about skin. Towels posts 3 movie quotes and asks if anyone can name the films. As far as I can tell, no one ever did. Keith laughs himself silly and chokes to death. Greg introduces the boards to MEGACAR.

    9/6/02 - I announce my intentions to write a company theme song. I never do. Greg suggests, "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air."

    Lu775 posts the first half of the 3rd episode in the epic Super Dancing Travis saga. Towels requests a graphic novel. We go out for lunch; the insanity continues without us. Lu775 posts the finale to the 3rd episode of SDT.

    (Over lunch, Keith and Greg meet Stewart, the 30 pound cat)

    Ken remarks (from Hong Kong) sarcastically that our lunches are too long. Ken sucks. (No that wasn't in the thread, but who says I can't editorialize..?)

    9/7/02 - Much discussion about Stewart. Zack contributes to making the thread longer. Luke suggests a sit-in to get Stewart added to the Palisades web site.

    9/9/02 - a recap of our weekend, in which Keith and Greg came over and destroyed my house. Long discussion about pet names, which turns -- naturally -- into a discussion about Revenge of the Nerds movies, before returning to pets, specifically dogs wearing hats made of fruit.

    9/10/02 - tender moment at Palisades. Group hug. More discussion of Nerds movies, which segues into a conversation about Anthony Michael Hall.

    9/11/02 - we don't post at all. People start to ask if we're dead.

    9/12/02 - we come back. we're not dead. Much discussion about 80's movies. Even more mockery of Keith, for being too young and not having seen said 80's movies. I compare Keith to Rainbow Brite. He doesn't get it.

    Greg sings the Facts of Life theme song. Blinky asks a question actually pertaining to our product. Chaos ensues. Arrangements begin for Ken's homecoming.

    9/13/02 - Ken joins us via satellite from Hong Kong. Rejects a lap dance from me. AND mocks me for collecting plushes. Some discussion about the lack of Muppet merchandise in Hong Kong.

    And then nothing happened for a few weeks. Which brings us to today, in which we have theorized that Ken did NOT in fact, ever come back from China, but that he is locked in a closet in the factory, and that a Chinese man has come home in his place... Funny, Jen didn't seem to notice...

    Anyway, that's it. Now what was my point in typing all of this out..? Oh yeah, Stryder Wolfe, you were right. It doesn't make any sense. My bad.

    Travis...I think it might be time for an intervention.

    Eh. Perhaps. I don't think I need any help, though.

    I know you were busy last night, but I had some free time before bed...

    are you telling me that Ken's fiancee is Jen?

    ken and jen...awwww that's so cute :D

    hmm, you know, the summary is just as funny as the actual thread, and only took me about a minute to read, instead of an hour. You shoulda done that YESTERDAY!! :)

    well, luckily, we all deal well with non-sensical-ness (is that a word?) around here...****, it's when you START to make sense that I'll be worried :p

    did I use enough smilies in this thread? Better throw in a few more ;) :cool: :confused: :o :)

    ok, that's better.

    Travis, you & your summary, Rock!
    Thinking way back to those many moons ago... good times, good times.

    shoot...now I gotta go back and see what mystery I left dangling...
  9. towels

    towels Well-Known Member

    ahhhh, I see...perhaps you were confused in thinking they were all movie quotes. Only the first two were from movies...
    #1-The Holy Grail (A DVD must own...subtitles for those who don't like the movie!)
    #2- Star Trek VI-The Undiscovered Country

    The third is a Weird Al song.

    Ahh yes, the good old days. Back when I was just a youngin. Now Im sooooo old!!! Thanks for all those who wished me a Happy Birthday!!!

    And, now for more stupid Keith quotes.....

    He left out a whole bunch of stuff I called him during that timeframe, other then that the summary was pretty good. Since then the following has happened

    Travis embrassed his natural Scooter look, dyed his hair orange, cut it all off except in the middle of his head, bought a shiny green jacket and now carries a megaphone around the office, yelling.

    After weeks the office started to smell, we found out Keith really was dead and laying under his desk. We bought him a nice memorial stone in the front of our office and put stupid stuff like "Finally we can be together Tupac, my bra!"

    And me, well I'm just super! I took the name "GROG" and became a professional wrestler. I dress up like a cave troll everyday, which consists of a loin cloth, a spear and a large hammer. Plus I finally traded in the MegaCar and got a MegaTruck.

    alrighty then.....

    A series of apologies


    I am sorry that I misunderstood. In my ignorance, I just assumed that all three qutes were from movies. I am admittedly a bit rusty when it comes to the works of Weird Al.

    Crazy Harry,

    I am sorry that my recap made you look "bad." That was not my intention -- I just reported what happened, as I saw it. No hard feelings.

    Keith & Greg,

    I am sorry that you guys are so dumb. Holding a conversation with the two of you is like talking to a freakin' pet rock. As each of you only has one brain cell, perhaps you should try rubbing them together to form a single intelligent thought. I'm not even going to write any more, as I know that neither of you can read.

    hmmm...out for lunch again today???

    I had a baloney sandwich. It did NOT tell me where the aliens were going to land, even after I shook it a few times.

    I know i just posted. But I just read this and thought I would see what Slim thought of this. I cut and pasted it at the end of this post. Plus I have to go back to work. So does this make you sad? Plus i didn't know where I should post this and i hate staring new threads. Maybe after you read this you can see if you can meet him, since he's such a bag fan of the Muppets.
    Snoop and Palisades working side-by-side, heck ya!

    Snoop gets the boot from Muppet movie
    Snoop Dogg's cameo in the latest Muppet adventure, "A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie," a parody of classic Christmas movies, will not make it to the small screen this December on NBC.
    According to the Los Angeles Times, executives pulled Snoop's footage after learning he was in another film due out this fall, "Diary of a Pimp," produced by Hustler. Directed by the Dr. Dre protégé, the unrated film boasts the talents of adult stars with Snoop as the ladies' pimp.
    Najee Ali, head of the Los Angeles-based Project Islamic Hope, said he thinks NBC made the right choice in scraping Snoop's part.
    "I grew up watching the Muppets. They are very precious to me -- those memories of watching [them] as a child," Ali said.
    "There are plenty of other hip-hop artists that they could have chosen rather than this guy [Snoop Dogg]. He was the very worst choice."
    According to Henson Co., Snoop's scene was pulled because it "did not advance the storyline."
    Other famous faces still expected to make cameos in the two-hour movie include William H. Macy, Kelly Ripa, Carson Daly and Rachel Hunter.

    Yeah...that was discussed at length in the Henson Headlines thread. Then things got nasty and now it's a taboo topic.

    We're here. We're just very busy right now. A lot of days we work straight through lunch...

    Not to dismiss your post FSHOW, but I think we would rather stay away from hot button issues. Despite strong feelings on the issues, I have intentionally stayed away from those threads -- and now they seem to have chased us here. This thread was created to be wacky and silly and goofy... as it should be.

    However, as the unofficial PR rep for the group, I will issue an unofficial statement:

    The Muppets have had a long history of various guest stars from various backgrounds -- some very wholesome, and some not so. If Snoop Dog REALLY is trying to clean up his image -- which none of us know for certain as we are not in his family or inner cricle -- it is a shame that his cameo was cut; especially if the cut WAS brought about by angry protests. If the man is truly trying to clean up his image, he needs support. All human beings make mistakes -- hence, defining us as human -- and we need to learn to be more accepting of others.

    All of this is irrelevant, as I see no reason why to question the Henson's official statement that Snoop was simply cut due to time constraints. The issue is dead, and it is ridiculous that arguments have gone on as long as they have.

    If you support Snoop, great. Hope that the scenes are included if/when the DVD is released. If you DON'T support Snoop, great. He will not be in the movie, so we can all stop talking about it.

    Now, let us please not discuss this issue in our little thread any longer.

    On another note, Stewart's cameo as Snoop Kitty Kat is still to be included in the movie.
