Well, when did this forum start and why? Someone tell us the story.

It all started years ago, when baby Funko's planet Gaytron was about to explode.

Funko's old man, Marlon Brando, decided to launch baby Funko into space in a ship he designed.

Of course he was a moron, as he could have built a ship for the entire family, but this never occured to him.

The ship landed in a field in North Carolina owned by slack jawed yokel named Venom, who decided to raise baby Funko, but being a yokel failed to notice Funko was already a grown man with the brain and sense of humor of a six year old.

A visiting German missionary named CGB Spender, also know as St Vincent of the Fucktards volunteered to take Funko to his mission in Germany, presumably to feed him saurkraut and vinershitzel.

While sailing for Germany the sailboat had a case of bad wind and baby Funko was shipwrecked in England, where a inbred half breed named Nav and a wine dealer named Boss Man decided to make Baby Funko their love child in reeding.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Okay, this is how it went down.

On the plains of East Africa lies the Selous game reserve, an area bigger than switzerland made uninhabitable, and largely unexplored, by the ravages of the dreaded tse-tse fly and it's inevitable companion, sleeping sickness.

Deep inside the scrubland of the remote southwestern part lies a cave, half-hidden by an ancient, overgrown acacia tree. No man has set foot there for centuries, possibly milennia. The animals, plentiful in the surrounding demi-forest, also seem to steer clear of the cave opening. But it's not like they actually avoid it. They just have no business going there.

But now, in the rain period of november 2001, grass grows everywhere, even in the arid groud beneath the acacia. A lone warthog, a young male cast out from the sounder, has wandered well off his natal range and into the area outside the cave. In its little herbivore brain it feels strangely nervous, even more than usual. It looks around but can see no obvious threat.

Suddenlly a strange smell starts to whaft from inside the cave. The warthog's panic response kicks into action and he flees, tail raised, towards the safety of the bush. He only makes it half-way before the smell becomes overpoweringly strong, but he struggles on with his little stubby legs and eventually, after what seems like an eternity, the smell starts to decrease in strength.

Warthogs have an excellent memory for smells. But he couldn't have known this smell. No-one had smelled it for thousands of years.

It was the smell of Counterglow.

Chris left out the bit about the Wicked Witch of the West (her friends call her AnnC, but she hasn't got any.)

I think you'll find she's "The Bru-chugging Ballcrusher of the North". And may God have mercy on your dingding.

yes, but she introduced herself as 'ann' when i met her in new york city. it doesn't take much imaginiation to put porn and masturbation together, does it?

08-07-2007, 10:19:02
The real answer is most of the people used to post at a place called ACOL (I think) which was owned by AnnC. Ann was a royal cunt to people so when Nav set up his own website most of the people came here. I think this was in the very late 90's.

08-07-2007, 11:30:41
ACOL is dead :(

08-07-2007, 11:55:57
I only visited it like once before it died. Venom or someone posted a link but there hadn't been a new post in ages. I registered and posted a thread but I think Venom was the only person to respond. Not even AnnC.

What a boring story

In fact this is an secret Microsoft project to study the effects of misinformation.

You may ask yourself "what's so secret about it?" and "how did I get here?", but revealing the secret project here is part of the misinformation principle.

FOOLS!!! This whole forum is a laboratory from the Frauenhofer Institute for German Humour. All day long German spambots place badly translated german oneliner jokes to see what is most effective, both positive and negative. When they have enough powerful jokes they will invade the internets and conquer enough lebensraum for Germany. The project is called Fall Orange. Watch for it this autumn.

Oerdin that story is totally ludicrous. :rolleyes:

Counterglow history.

A short fat balding man was discovered wandering the streets of Reading muttering to himself. At first he called himself Keith and would only talk about accounting but it soon became clear that he was suffering from severe multi-personality disorder and Bells Palsy.

After several years of treatment his doctor, Dr. Vernon decided that to continue to improve 'Keith' needed interaction with the public at large, but there was concern within the hospital that Keith might be dangerous so Dr Vernon created this internet environment where Keith and his many alternate personalities like Drekkus, Vincent, C.G.B. Spender and Provost Harrison could interact with each other and, potentially, with members of the public.

Unfortunately it's been a terrible failure. It's been nearly 6 years since the experiment started and so far not a single member of the public has registered, leaving us just talking to ourself. Our Bells Palsy even has a login, we call her Alsieboo.
