Whilst I loved that clip, this one is rather more poignant...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH3-Gt7mgyM&list=PLwCd_jgvjTjQzP7Q9REbcqJNJuyzhJzC0

i remember drinking and laughing with some guys from school when this episode was first shown, everyone commenting and talking, when this happened, total silence, noone knew what to say - speechless

still powerful

Haiku and seemingly logical historical references.  Well I'm out of out of original ideas to complete.  I do believe that Common Core societal rules mandate we all receive participation trophies therefore we should all receive free keys to the game. :P

You have to vote to see who's winning! :)

Voting closes on 9/13 and we'll announce the winner on 9/14

If there's a tie, then the non-tied entries will be eliminated, and we'll just put the tied ones up against each other.

I suppose it's easier for y'all to vote when I make this thread visible, huh?

This was a tough poll to vote in because all those entries are superb.  Finally made up my mind though and cast a vote!
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
