I love it! How do we choose

I love it!

How do we choose who gets to pull the trigger?

Seriously, a ploy like that, or something similar, could work.  It would have the potential to go viral pretty fast.

Hmm....

Remember the old National Lampoon cover?

It featured a dog

That's a funny pic but...

...it seems to be just like one of thoese lolcatz thingees that are all over the place.  How about a clip from a movie with lines or thought balloons, or possibly invitation E-Mails that we could send to our friends to get them involved in the latest caption contest.  Simply send us the general E-Mail with the contest and directions to the site, and we'll add the rest of the text as, naturally, we know our friends better than you do.

Also, recall a similar garfield birthday card...

It had a cartoon of garfield holding a banana and his teddy bear, and it said, "Have a happy birthday."

On the inside it read, "Or the teddy bear gets it."

Get real, T

If the people here had any friends in The Real World, would we be  wasting our time here?

There's a Real World?

Who wants to be friends with people who know people from an MTV reality show?

I've been thinking of whipping up some banner ads.  Anyone got any suggestions?

How about something along the line of

Promoting Crankyland?

Terribelle's picture

 

I have no ideas, sorry.  It ain't easy being useless, ya know.

I'm a bit surprised at the noticeable absence of quite a few regulars from Old Cranky's.   Where have they gone?   Xman, Mucus, HS, Oddball, Darth, scarlet, demon, JYD, lost cause, Wallee, Drew and a host of others have all but vanished.   What's up wit dat?

My guess is that they, like me, have been looking for a way to break their Cranky addiction, and took the opportunity to do so.  I've personally been a junkie to the site for a full ten years (with a few small breaks in there somewhere).   I guess I just feel the need right now to break the cycle and stop the nutsiness I created for myself.

Anyway, what we obviously need here is some new blood, and hopefully that will gradually and eventually happen.   My apologies for not being much help here..

^^^^NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Don't quit! Addictions are goooooooooood

Crankyland without Terribell is like well CRANKYLAND WITHOUT TERRIBELL!!!!

If you won't post at least get your baby to post when it arrives

You miss X-Man?

GrumpyDave's picture

Weird.

What's so weird about missing Xman, Dave??

Terribelle's picture

How can you NOT miss someone who was so annoying... so amusing... and so fuckin sexy?    HOW?!

Tell him, Raj.  With emotion this time!

 

ex-man's busy.

Kangagang's picture

He and his klan buddies have got a lot of work to do to get their good ol' boy McBush over the line in November....

Darn right he's busy!

Rajah's picture

Here he is hard at work

You missed me, Terribelle?

HS's picture

That's sweet.

Seriously, I've been busy as hell lately, traveling for both business and pleasure (but that's mostly over with), fighting off jet lag, and now doing some freelance work that will keep me pretty busy for another week or so.

But hey!  I made a few movie-related posts earlier tonight, so I'm down but not out. 

I have NO IDEA how to promote C-land, at least not until I learn more about internet marketing, which is one of my personal goals for the next 6 months or so....

Now how come nobody around here talks about movies?  ;)

I love my job, but godDAMN it's been a pain in the ass this year.  I rarely have the time or energy to so much as lurk anymore.   Ahhh, the price we pay for being devoted, top-notch, totally hot miracle workers, I suppose.

And yes - the political post-count is twice that of the movie post-count.   And Xman and Oddball don't even live here anymore!

 

Oddball posted early on

Rajah's picture

But I haven't seen hide nor hair of your beloved X-Man

And where the heck is your obsession MR. MUCUS?

He is not my obsession!

Terribelle's picture

 I just liked giving him shit, cuz then he'd call me a prostitute and stuff.   That cracked me up!

As far as Xman goes, he (like you) will always have a special place tucked away in my crotch.. I mean.. tucked away in my heart.   I've always had a thing for vulnerable boys, I guess.

But enough about the good old days, let's talk about our favorite vacation spots!   I'm thinking Vegas in February as we speak.

 

Vulnerable?!?!

Rajah's picture

Hey, I'm tough as nails! Can't you tell what a hardass I am?

 

Hardasses are over-rated

Terribelle's picture

Look at Coaster, for Pete's sake.

He does have a hardass

Rajah's picture

His wife should beat his butt more often to soften it up

Raj, there's something you should prolly know about Coaster...

Terribelle's picture

... and men in general..

If his wife were to beat his butt more often, I'm pretty sure that he wouldn't.. um..  soften. 

Coaster is an okay dude

Rajah's picture

Sure he's a cannibal but hey that's just a lifestyle!

His wife is a pearl btw
