Wow queenzboulevard, I’m flattered. though not sure “witty” qualifies as I’ve heard that brevity is the soul of wit

SuperMouse's avatar

Astro Chuck, but I’m a close second.

scamp's avatar

Sorry Charlie..Hey, that sounds like a tuna commercial!! I meant AstroChuck because many of his posts are so jocular.

Harp, Marina, and Fireside always have detailed and informative answers. Astro and Knot always have very witty answers.

SuperMouse's avatar

@Pete, you are right about Knot, his answers are always witty!

Foolaholic's avatar

Yeah, I would say Astro Chuck.

janbb's avatar

Since I can’t vote for myself, I’d vote for AstroChuck too. (And he’s so cute.)

Foolaholic's avatar

You’d think he would get in on this by now. He’s probably hiding somewhere, watching us.

AstroChuck, FTW!

cookieman's avatar

Vote for AstroChuck here.

Love that mailman.

SoapChef's avatar

Don’t upchuck, but its AstroChuck.

miasmom's avatar

Astro Chuck, if you read this thread…have you always been so witty or is that something you acquired over time?

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

I can’t wait to see who AstroChuck picks since he can’t pick himself!

c’mere chuckie baby…mama sue got something for you…

janbb's avatar

ASTROCHUCK, ASTROCHUCK – HE’S OUR MAN,

IF HE CAN’T DO IT, NO-ONE CAN!

dalepetrie's avatar

I’ll give mad props to AC as well!

wundayatta's avatar

Goooo Astrochuck!!!!

Maybe someone could point those of us who are new to an allstar list of Astrochuckian witticisms?

Jeruba's avatar

Oh, my. Well, AstroChuck is certainly the darling of Fluther, and deservedly so. But I hope we don’t start seeing ourselves as competitors. The atmosphere on this site is so nice without a feeling that we are being compared with one another and pitted against one another for recognition. I’d hate to see that change.

augustlan's avatar

@Jeruba: I’ve recently become aware that this type of thing may make some people feel like they are ‘on the outside, looking in’, too. We shouldn’t be competetive about these things (not that I think we really are – but it might seem that way) .

dalepetrie's avatar

No harm no foul with this one, I think there’s a clear concensus here. And that’s because we’re asking for a very specific criteria…wit. Now if we cushioned this in generalities and asked for favorites, we’d risk becoming cliquish and hurting each other’s feelings.

Foolaholic's avatar

I agree with dalepetrie here;

Yes it’s a competition, but AstroChuck has swept pretty cleanly, so it’s not like we’re getting into arguments or anything. But it’s something to stay mindful of.

janbb's avatar

AstroChuck – where are you? We need you to come and bask in your glory – wittily, of course.

AstroChuck's avatar

shucks. <blushes>

What do I win?

AstroChuck's avatar

I’m going with Gail. No kidding. She can make me laugh out load. Of course, there are a lot of drive-by flutherers who are unintentionally hilarious.
(e.g.- frizzer)

Trustinglife's avatar

You win Lurve. Lots and Lots of Lurve. (10,000+ worth.)

wundayatta's avatar

I think Augustlan has a very serious point here. It’s not the competition that’s the problem. It’s the people that weren’t selected, and wonder why they were overlooked. It’s the completely arbitrary nature of the process. It’s all about saying who is in and who is out. In folk can have a say, and out folk don’t say a thing.

They’re not going to say anything, but their feelings are still hurt. These kinds of questions, are, to my mind, what lead to a very nasty atmosphere over on Askville. People had hidden resentments, and they came out in strange ways. The cliques form, and the outsiders seethe and see the site as not for them. They go elsewhere. You may think these kinds of competitions are all in good fun, but for outsiders, it is a sign that they are not a part of things. It creates unfriendliness, but everyone thinks it’s fun. Very subtle. I think it is very dangerous, too.

Jeruba's avatar

It’s also the idea of ranking people at all, as if to say “look out, you’re being judged against one another,” and it’s the way “everybody knows everybody” feels to folks who don’t. “All in good fun” is fun just for those who are having the fun.

I’m in favor of our appreciating one another for whatever we have to offer and not of crowning anyone in any category.
