Nicely done, if you screw your eyes a bit the golden arches could almost be a mighty Worm.

Great stuff. Maybe someone could also do a Walmart theme to Dune, or something similar.

Here's my variation on the McDune idea:

The only thing that surprises me in this thread is that we didn't start doing this years ago.

Quality needs to ripen. That is the difference between us and the atrocities.

I thought compost ripens too.

That sure is a strange way to think about Compost, rather than it ripen does it not degrade? Although thanks for the heads up I'll remember not to take any "ripe" fruit you offer me:)

If you're a fly's larva it ripens with time. :wink:

I wonder if it's the same when you're a sandchigger?

If what's the same?

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

Ah, but Ripe can mean stinky, so while it doesn't ripen in the usuall meaning of the word, it certainly does get stinky.

Aha you are ofcourse correct, that secondary meaning escaped me at the time. Please orald allow me to doff my hat to you.

Ah, that is for certain. When my compost maker-thingy gets full and I move it to start a new batch, it smells like a herd of diarrhetic cattle have passed (and I do mean PASSED) through. :shock:

This thread is 100% win!

I can see him in another Jerry O'Connel parody

"To me it's all about the KJA. It's just lousy writing. *fooosh*"
