What questions would you include in a "Fluther Classics" list?

Asked by augustlan (46582 points ) April 5th, 2011

We’ve done this before, but it’s been a while and there are a lot of newer people who’ve probably missed some.

What are our most heartwarming, awe inspiring, and just plain hilarious questions? Specifically, I’m looking for those that have become part of Fluther lore.

My ultimate goal is to write a blog post about them. This way, I’ll be able to add newer classics as they come along, and we’ll all be able to link to the blog post next time we want to reference our memes. No more starting from scratch! :D

Link us to your classics, please. Thanks!

Well we all know The Cake in the Frizzer will be on the list.XD

MrsDufresne’s last question sticks with me, for all of the wrong reasons.

augustlan's avatar

Links, guys, links! Pretty please?

Well, the paid plants Q which led to the plaid pants Q seems to be making it’s way into Fluther lore pretty quickly. Much to my delight! Already there are numerous references to “plaid pants” in various posts when a Q or post seems off or trollish…

The question about Seahorse Porn.

The repeated ones from Pink Panties Guy were hysterical and alarming at the same time. Sadly, they have been deleted.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Sorry, big assed downer.

This one question about BF/GF and Cake is prime Fluther silliness.

Plus how on earth do you get 228 answers and 1 GQ ? That is worth something….or not.

Seelix's avatar

I haven’t really been around long enough to know about all the classics. But I’m with @JilltheTooth about the p(L)aid p(L)ants being one of the best moments in the few months that I’ve been here. Also, How much do you hate the new Fluther? was pretty awesome.

The Create a Lifetime Movie question was pretty hilarious. Well, at least it made me laugh.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

After searching hard for the Cake in the Frizzer award, I found some great ones. I quite like the idea of orgasming every time I eat pancakes, and I will now laugh hysterically every time I think of stiff socks!

All of @pathfinder’s Borat-like mutilations of English.

@Andrew’s Shakespearean sonnet, in perfect iambic pentameter.

The haiku threads

erichw1504's avatar

@gailcalled Of course! And this is a classic from @pathfinder!

SpatzieLover's avatar

@erichw1504 I adored @johnpowell

Seelix's avatar

I really wish I had been around to experience pathfinder in real time.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

How could you not include this beauty? If I bought a cactus, what should I name it?
It wouldn’t let me link it.

SpatzieLover's avatar

I thought so @queenie but I wasn’t sure…Thank you!

MilkyWay's avatar

@SpatzieLover No problem : )

gailcalled's avatar

@erichw1504: I’d hire you as a research assistant any time.

erichw1504's avatar

@gailcalled That’s how I roll, thanks!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@erichw1504 The answers are also gone to that question. Probably not a bad thing or Auggie might shoot me.

erichw1504's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe What do you mean? There’s 20 responses to it. All in tacked.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@erichw1504 I was thinking of the followup question.
Can the Qs on Fluther get any more nonsensical? What can we do to change this trend?

gailcalled's avatar

Nonsensical? In tacked? Out tacked? Intact?

erichw1504's avatar

Wow, now I’m definitely lost. And yes, I spelled “intact” wrong, shoot me @gailcalled. :)

jonsblond's avatar

@Seelix @pathfinder is still around. He answered a question the other day. =)

Seelix's avatar

@jonsblond – Oh yeah, lookit that! I wish he’d ask some questions, then. :)

SpatzieLover's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I’m not following you either. All of the responses are there.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@gailcalled @erichw1504 linked that one up^^^^there It is one of my favorite JP responses of all time :D

Kardamom's avatar

It’s a Fluther Holiday Party

What is Something that you Remember from Your Childhood

There was one really funny one about “bad” foods that we love. I can’t recall how it was worded so I can’t find the link, but some of the answers were nutella, nachos, zingers, snowballs and Kraft cheese spread in a jar.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@SpatzieLover I was thinking the cactus question had a huge number of answers, but it was a followup question about the cactus question that generated a major uproar. My mistake.

SpatzieLover's avatar

Ahhh..the follow-up was awesome. —-lurved @bob—

Ladymia69's avatar

@augustlan Why did this question get closed so quickly?

augustlan's avatar

@ladymia69 The cactus Q was a prelude to the mess that @bob_ linked to up there ^^. In hindsight, it became apparent that it was asked to mock other (similar, but genuine) questions. Pretty sure I’m not going to count either of those as classics. Maybe they’ll go under a new heading: Little Shop of Horrors.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@augustlan Little Shops of Horrors? teehee… What about Train Wrecks?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate “Train wrecks” sounds like a great new category

augustlan's avatar

Ha, that’s what we actually call them!

erichw1504's avatar

@Kardamom “There was one really funny one about “bad” foods that we love.”

Was it this one?

Seelix's avatar

@seazen_ – WOW. That is SO AWESOME I might die.

Kardamom's avatar

@erichw1504 No, I looked at that one, and that’s not it. That must have been before my time. The one I’m thinking about had answers from me as well as others. Unfortunately I can’t remember exactly how the question was worded or who the OP was. It might have had something to do with things you ate as a child or things that you used to love but now realize are really bad for you.

erichw1504's avatar

@Kardamom OK then, here is one and another that might be it.

Kardamom's avatar

No it’s neither of those either. I tried going back through all of my comments, but there were too many, so I stopped looking. The only thing I can recall is that I listed Kraft cheese spread in a jar and raspberry zingers. But there were tons of awful but delicious things listed by everybody.

Ever have constipation so bad that it hurt to move?

Turned out to be appendicitis and he got to the hospital in time thanks to shilolo & Fluther.

Saving lives = instant classic even with all poop talk ~

erichw1504's avatar

@funkdaddy Excellent addition!

SpatzieLover's avatar

This was the most suspenseful thread ever in Fluther. I was holding my breath waiting for her to come back!

SpatzieLover's avatar

LOL4RL—I thought @andrew was brilliant

Fluther memes this leads you to the Fluther timeline created by @Nimis genius

Kardamom's avatar

@erichw1504 YES!!! That’s it! Thank you for finding it. Hopefully @augustlan will like it too. Some of the answers were just hilarious and/or gross. Plus everybody came out to play that day.

erichw1504's avatar

@Kardamom Fiiiiiiinally!

jonsblond's avatar

@Kardamom We’ve had so many weird food combination questions, I think it would be hard to pick one over the other. Here’s @andrew’s question from 2006. I do love those questions. They are fun. =)

Dutchess_III's avatar

Damn it people! I’m spittin’ mashed potatoes all over my key board!

Dutchess_III's avatar

THAT WASN’T EVEN A QUESTION ANDREW!! Pushed back for editing.

Dutchess_III's avatar

HE’S ON THE SOFA! HE’S IN THE TOILET! CALL THE COPS!! I have tears running down my face!

Dutchess_III's avatar
