Wow already a new one? Time to first come up with a thread title. How about:

12th Obsequious Banter Thread: Kambo's Serenade

2nd post

I called it the Off Topic thread - someone can change it if they feel like it.

Quote:
ob⋅se⋅qui⋅ous
   /əbˈsikwiəs/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [uhb-see-kwee-uhs] Show IPA Pronunciation
–adjective
1. characterized by or showing servile complaisance or deference; fawning: an obsequious bow.
2. servilely compliant or deferential: obsequious servants.
3. obedient; dutiful.
The title has never set well with me -- since when are Flyers fans obedient or compliant?

It is actually the alternate definition of obsequious. Which infers the tendency to ramble.

They arent. But they also arent English scholars either. They probably thought it meant disruptive, disorderly, rowdy, etc. So I vote that we keep obsequious in the title. Just fits for some reason, not because it is correctly used or correctly described, but just because it has become a staple of the HF Flyers community.

Wow, didn't know I could write like that.

I still like my suggestion from #11.

12th Obsequious: This is just friggin' ridiculous.

You can get rid of "friggin'" if you want.

Mike Cannon said Niron Biittymaki the other day. It should be the title.

Hey, not like I'm the dictionary nazi or anything...but if we're gonna debate obsequious vs off topic ect., shouldn't we also make sure that its the obsequious banTer thread,not the obsequious banDer thread. I mean I dont think we're tying things together here...

I find it funny that the first 100 posts and last 100 posts usually have multiple references to the titles of these threads.

(the irony in this post is noted)

I usually "whine" about the thread titles, but here's my suggestion:

Have each numbered thread correspond with a Flyers player. Make this title something to do with Gagne. If there's no current player wearing that number, go back in history.

I like that Idea... 13 (Metro Im pretty sure) should be a good one.

I am going to have to agree with you on this one. OT: 12th Obsequious Banter Thread: Simon Gagne: The Year for the Great Return....or something like that

I was the last post on 11! Sorry Charlie you don't count
reason being, mods can post in locked threads ha!

I really don't like our schedule as of late. I also would like to point out-I don't like the DMV.

I said the same thing in the last one before it closed

"Honestly, seeing at this threads are starting to go fast, lets just name each thread after a Flyer.

Easiest solution.

Like the next 12... Gagne something somethign what not"


Great minds = Alike.

So lets ****in do this

Since many people suggested to change the title to a player, I will vote for that.
