Break out the Brill Cream, press your slickest suit, and spit-shine those kicks to a high luster - it's time to wish another jelly Happy 10K!

Asked by cookieman (41414points) August 1st, 2011 from iPhone

Three cheers for @MRSHINYSHOES. A true gentleman if a bit of a throwback to the days when men were men and jellies were just a candy. Congratulations sir. Nicely done.

Don’t tell anyone this, but I use your shoes as mirrors sometimes to peek under some female Jellies’ skirts…

Dang niece, she got in the way of my getting to your mansion with the box of Speedos all dark plue, less one flaming red one. I hear the Roman pool you have there is perfectly heated. Well. guess I better shoo away the Chikanettes and tell them to come around for your 20k. Good work my friend, good work. :-)

Congrats! You make this place a very interesting place to visit. You are one of my favorites! =)

rooeytoo's avatar

Congrats to the shiny shoes dude! You know when I was in school with the nuns, shiny shoes, such as patent leather were not allowed because they would reflect your underpants and the boys would have lewd thoughts!

Hope your shiny shoes don’t reflect your tighty whities!

Pardon me as I sprinkle a little sand for a soft-shoe salute!

ratboy's avatar

Kick back now and scuff ‘em up a bit.


Again, to everyone who responded, thank you so much! You guys and gals are WONDERFUL!!! Those teardrops on my shiny shoes are making things soooo sparkly!

jonsblond's avatar

Does anyone know how long @MRSHINYSHOES has been gone? I miss the guy. :/

dappled_leaves's avatar

Aww… I hadn’t noticed until just now. I just realized recently that another longtime jelly left at some point. So strange.

SpatzieLover's avatar

I think peeps were rude @jonsblond :( & he went away

jonsblond's avatar

@SpatzieLover they were. They didn’t notice his heart and humor. What a shame. Hope he comes back.

cookieman's avatar

Agreed. I really liked him too. I’m glad you asked about it @jonsblond.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I miss him too. And the darling tooth lady’s absence is driving me nuts.

dappled_leaves's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Yes, that is who I was referring to!

tranquilsea's avatar

Does anyone know why she left?

28lorelei's avatar

PM me too! This is very sad.

28lorelei's avatar

You know what’s scary? I just went to MRSHINYSHOES’ page and it says “Oh no. We couldn’t find /users/MRSHINYSHOES.You may have followed an old link, typed in the address incorrectly, or are just trying to make us feel bad. Go home or contact us.” How does a user disappear like that?

ETpro's avatar

@28lorelei He told me that he had a new job assignment that was going to be very demanding and that he might not be able to participate any more. He probably pulled his account due to that. I suspect he’s OK.

FutureMemory's avatar

@28lorelei That simply means he cancelled his account.

augustlan's avatar

Or was banned or suspended. Same page comes up, no matter why they’re gone.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Ooooh, I think Auggie’s trying to hint that he did something bad, dirty and wrong and got banned. <titter>

FutureMemory's avatar

I think the worst thing he was possibly capable of was mistaking what decade it is.

ucme's avatar

He was okay that fella, quirky & different, but an okay chap.
He would often PM me telling of his “fisticuffs” with the local “yobs” & how he was “kicked in the nuts” I heard his voice as that of George Takei, I told him this once & he mistook it as a slur on his sexuality…...I liked him.

FutureMemory's avatar

No kidding, he told you that same story @ucme? He discussed it with me in great detail over the course of about 4–5 days.

I think he was desperate for someone to tell him he was in the right…for provoking minors into a physical altercation.

ucme's avatar

Yeah, I suspected as much but simply “smiled & nodded” at his, as you say, antiquated philosophies.

This is like a Fluther wake.
