Is it time for some new Fluther Greetings?

Asked by drhat77 (6173 points ) February 8th, 2010

After a 15 month hiatus tending to a newborn daughter, I have returned. A lot has improved with Fluther, but I noticed the greetings [You smell really good.] have not changed.

Does anyone else it’s time to retire the old set, and maybe replace them with a user picked set? Maybe if people input suggestions here, the ones with the most GA’s can be added to the list.

What does everyone think?

Did the sun just come out?

filmfann's avatar

Pull my finger.

filmfann's avatar

It had to be you.

drhat77's avatar

sigh of course after 24 hours of being back and asking this question, NOW I see some new greetings.

erichw1504's avatar

The truth is out there.

erichw1504's avatar

Life is like a box of jellies, you never know what you’re gunna get.

janbb's avatar

Wrap your tentacles around me.

I have just met you, and I love you.

Hi there! ::wink!::

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Has anyone offered to teach you the secret handshake yet?

CyanoticWasp's avatar

What’s in the frizzer?

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You make me want to get out of bed in the morning. (When you’re not already there.)

ETpro's avatar

Greetings? What greetings?

erichw1504's avatar

All your lurve are belong to us.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@erichw1504 or… All our lurve are belong to you.

Good suggestion, though.

nebule's avatar

I wish I could give you the hug you so very need today

erichw1504's avatar

@CyanoticWasp The correct quote is “All your base are belong to us” and I just changed base to lurve. Why would it be “All our lurve are belong to you”? Doesn’t make sense.

nebule's avatar

I don’t understand that at all @erichw1504

AstroChuck's avatar

Can you keep a secret? You’re our favorite.

You leave us breathless.

You have something in your teeth. Right there. No, other side. There you go. Got it!

What are you looking at?

Have we told you lately that we love you?

Want to go steady?

We promise to be gentle.

Have you hugged a jelly today?

You look so much better today.

Where have you been? We will not be ignored.

janbb's avatar

@AstroChuck Out of fresh ideas today?

erichw1504's avatar

Stumbled? There’s a Fluther for that.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@erichw1504, I know what the “correct” quote is, and I know why you reworded it the way you did. My further rewording was a further derivation.

Try to keep up.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We’ll still respect you in the morning. At least as much as we do now.

erichw1504's avatar

@CyanoticWasp Oooh, sorry. You are moving to fast. ~ The way you said “Good suggestion, though” made it seem like I did it wrong.

erichw1504's avatar

Jelly who run in front of car get tired. Jelly who run behind car get exhausted.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@erichw1504 oh, no problem. I did enjoy yours, in case my compliment seemed dismissive. (I need to work on that.)

Speaking of which:

“We’re still working on it.”

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We’ll still lurve you in the morning.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Hi; we’re Fluther, and we’ll be your Fluther this evening. How y’all doin?

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Nice day if it don’t rain. Nice day even if it does.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@lynneblundell google “All Your Base Are Belong to Us” and watch the video; I can’t get a decent link from work or I’d give you one myself.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You’re not optional to us.

erichw1504's avatar

Weapons of Mass Lurvin’.

Dr_C's avatar

Welcome to the dark side. It’s true, we have cookies.

JONESGH's avatar

The cake is a lie.

Dr_C's avatar

Your tentacles look fantastic today.

erichw1504's avatar

Everytime you lurve, a jelly gets its tentacles.

AstroChuck's avatar

@Dr_C @erichw1504- Oh, tentacles. I thought you both said… nevermind.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You’ve tried the rest, now try the best.

erichw1504's avatar

@AstroChuck Said what? Tentracles? Tentpoles? Tentative?

Dr_C's avatar

@erichw1504 and @AstroChuck this kind of discrepancy makes my testicles tingle

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Thank God—or whatever, or nothing at all—you’re finally here.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

It only hurts for a little while.

aprilsimnel's avatar

This is one I get all the time at the salon.

Oooh! Your hair is just so soft!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You’ve been working out, haven’t you? We can tell.

erichw1504's avatar

Keep on lurvin’!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You’re perfect just the way you are. Unless you want to change; that’s a good thing, too.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You complete us.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

You make us want to be a better fluther.

erichw1504's avatar

Lurve is like a boomerang: you get it back right away.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We’re glad you showed up; we were just thinking of you.

erichw1504's avatar

I love the smell of lurve in the morning.

erichw1504's avatar

There’s no place like Fluther.

erichw1504's avatar

I see jelly people.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Frankly, my dear, we really do give a damn.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

May the fluther be with you.

The fluther is strong with this one.

(Well, they complement each other, so they had to go together.)

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Why don’t you come on up and fluther me sometime?

erichw1504's avatar

You don’t have to meet us halfway, we’ll meet you all the way. (too creepy?)

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We would have sleeping sex with you any day night. (I can top yours for creepy, @erichw1504.)

erichw1504's avatar

@CyanoticWasp You topped it with more than just creepiness on that one.

filmfann's avatar

You’ve been on Answerbag, haven’t you?

Trillian's avatar

@erichw1504 and or @CyanoticWasp does this mean that one of you might know the name of that Korean movie about some guy who wrapped tinfoil on his head against the aliens, who turned out to be real? I’d love to see that again.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

And I’d like to see it with you @Trillian, but I have no idea what you’re talking about (other than a strange Korean movie, that is).

Trillian's avatar

Dangit. Roll on the floor and kick funny. Another time Highlander!

eponymoushipster's avatar

They added new greetings less than a year ago.

but if we’re gonna suggest new ones:

“Well slap my ass and call me Dr. J, you’re back!”
“that’s what she said”

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We needed a special greeting just for you.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Awww, you look like you need a hug!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Let’s enjoy each other’s company while we can. It’s so nice to have you here.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Spanking is optional.

eponymoushipster's avatar

“Nice to have you stop by. The safeword is ‘banana’.”

CyanoticWasp's avatar

… or potato.

Jeruba's avatar

We want to snuggle up to you.

Your radiance is blinding.

We saved a place for you.

Next time don’t stay away so long.

Shouldn’t you be sleeping?

Doing the jelly dance.

Your smile is like sunshine to our hearts.

Dr. J was just looking for you.

We saved the best questions for you.

filmfann's avatar

Green is your color. And blue is my color when you’re not here.

Dr_C's avatar

Let Dr. J make it all better

erichw1504's avatar

Stop, drop and fluther!

erichw1504's avatar

A jelly a day will keep the doctor away.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

We have cookies. And guidelines.

erichw1504's avatar

Hey there, let me take your jacket.

drhat77's avatar

@erichw1504 – what about flutherers who are doctors—like myself?

erichw1504's avatar

@drhat77 “Hey there, let me take your lab coat”? I don’t get what you are asking.

drhat77's avatar

@erichw1504 sorry i did’t see the coat one i meant A jelly a day will keep the doctor away.

erichw1504's avatar

@drhat77 Well, don’t doctors still see other doctors if they’re sick or hurt? I wouldn’t imagine that you could put a cast on your own broken arm, could you?

Dr_C's avatar

@erichw1504 I’ve had to suture myself on more than one occasion…

drhat77's avatar

@erichw1504 1) most doctors treat themselves and family for minor things
2) it still seem like your comment means that fluther would and should repel us

drhat77's avatar

@Dr_C where, if i might ask? (and don’t tell me the name of the hospital, wise-guy)

Dr_C's avatar

@drhat77 left knee, right cheek (with a mirror), right shin and left thigh. (all cycling accidents… all near my ER). Didn’t trust the interns to do it correctly and not leave a scar.

drhat77's avatar

@Dr_C awww it’s so much fun to watch those little guys sweat though – totally worth the scar.

Dr_C's avatar

@drhat77 very true… but a facial scar can kinda be detrimental to my “social agenda” if you know what I mean. Also… I was nice to the interns! I made them suffer at work but took them drinking on off days. So I’m not a complete ass.

On a related note, did you know that interns bounce? I learned this during our first “intramural” football game. hehehehehe

erichw1504's avatar

OK, that’s it. I’m changing my name to DrErichw1504.

drhat77's avatar

@Dr_C – why did you become a doctor if not to cause suffering upon the vulnerable?

PS i tease my residents mercilessly but i try to be fair in the workload and assessments and i never let them butter me up

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Four out of five doctors would recommend Fluther for their patients who breathe.
