    This thread sucks. Its subject matter is irrelevant, its tone strident and its author at best a twit, at worst a malevolent wart. This post wrote itself.

    This post and all comments in this thread made in reply to this post are lacking in factual content, insightful perception, or reasonable opinion. This post and all comments in this thread made in reply to this post are expressions of their authors' invidious intents, raw prejudices, simple jealousy and laughable ignorance.

    This thread fails to lionize a regional fast food chain for two score and ten posts.

    This thread fails to demonize a regional fast food chain or its lionizers for any number of posts.

    This thread fails to express unbridled exuberance from a first-time poster. This thread fails to contain 7 or more posts made within 35 minutes summarily condemning the OP as a shill. (This thread may have been posted by a shill.)

    This thread is utterly lacking in sufficient snark.

    Every statement in this thread, other than the preceding one, is true. The sentence preceding this sentence is false. The preceding two sentences are true, but unprovable. The preceding sentence is false, but not-false in an imaginable multivalent logic.

    This thread thinks this thread sucks.

    Jim,

    If you shared, you can no longer offer a valid opinion. Your not having experienced the full composition, you fail to appreciate it for what it really is.

    Jim,

    Your post has some salient points that haven't been made elsewhere, but the words rhyme with words used in a 2004 thread about boloney. Therefore, I suspect that this thread will be merged with the 2004 boloney thread shortly.

    From what I can piece together, this post was under the impression that it could not speak to the thread, and so it and the thread decided to put together their version of a thread.

    I don't know what the thread knew or didn't know, but I don't believe they communicated our request to it. My impression (and it's just an impression) is that the primary problem in terms of the format for the thread was the front of the thread.

    I motioned to the thread to express my dismay: this was to have been part of a national evaluation on threads. After this jarring experience, I doubt I'll return to this thread.

    I think JimInLoganSquare should sue the post for appropriating his name and attaching it to itself. For that matter, Jim, how did the post get your password to even log on and be able to post itself in the first place? I smell identity theft here ladies and gentlemen.

    I think JimInLoganSquare has got a strong enough case to sue the post for everything it is worth.

    Which, by the post's own admission, is nothing.

    This thread -- which sucks -- seems to be winding down. So in the name of defending the site's honor, I'm going to direct some snarky comments towards a previous poster who was especially strident or a bit of a jackass, thereby ensuring that the thread can continue to suck for at least another seven or eight pages. I will be completely unable to step away from this argument until the moderators lock the thread.

    Is this for real?
    Like the previous time this discussion came up (get it?), I tried looking up what was known about it before shooting my fingers off and once again found that this is in fact a well known phenomenon.

    However, because I am deriving some perverse pleasure in this thread, rather than simply letting time get wasted and not even posting (before the thread gets locked), here's my 3c

    This Thread is the Thread between that Thread you saw and the one you think you saw.

    This Thread destroys worlds.

    This Thread extends pizza grease-lubricated tendrils across a thousand plateaus.

    The Thread before you now existed before you now.

    This Thread concatenates misapprehensions, a cacophony, even

    These sweetbreads are mushy, my reductio medulla oblongata is mysteriously missing from my asymmetrical porcelain plate, this Thread is Zagat-rated, really?

    This Thread, sheesh...

    This Thread offends me

    This Thread exacerbates my irritable bowel syndrome

    I suspect this thread is nuts or was created in a facility on which equipment is shared with milk, egg, or nut products

    For that matter, this Thread, for sure, ain't kosher

    or, Halal...but, that's meat for another day

    This Thread whimpers, cowers in the shadows

    This Thread eats what it's fed

    This Thread, yes, bites the hand that feeds it

    This Thread sucks

    Seriously guys, at this point you're all just piling on. I mean, this thread's only been around for 2 days, so I think it's totally irresponsible to say this thread sucks when it's clearly still experiencing opening-week jitters and working out the kinds. This thread is a friend of mine, it's working its ass off to fulfill its dream, so it's really unfair that you guys are totally trying to ruin its livelihood. I think if you give this thread an honest second chance, it'll become your favorite thread ever.
