    So this is me taking over The People Speak and putting it in the forum where it'll get more attention. This thread is for funny and/or impacting quotes of comments posted all over GR. I'll be taking both entries from everyone via PM and I'll be posting my own favorites. This was originally all about what I think is funny. I'm actually giving you the privilege of contributing to it. Privilege.

    I'm sure you're wondering about prizes. I have very few lined up to start, and I'm really not in a position to be adding any more. Unless I work out something with Danny and the other staffers, the only rewards being given out here will be laughs and huzzahs. Prizes are for whoever has successfully entered the most quotes featured, or whoever has had their quotes featured the most.

    I intend for this to be a weekly thing, but I will update it whenever I feel like it. Do not ask to see more content if it's been less than a week since the last update. Prizes will not be weekly, however. They will be given out monthly if available.

    --Rules for submissions--

    * You have to PM the quote to me, along with the url of the source page.
    * The quote must contain the poster name(s) (for forum posts, just click Quote, remove text if necessary, and the copy pasta it to the PM).
    * Send any number of quotes, but don't go crazy with it. If you try entering every little thing that could come off as funny that ever gets posted around here, you will receive very disturbing mental images of things you didn't even know you were afraid of.
    * You MAY quote yourself. However, if you keep sending me everything you ever post because you think you're super-amazingly hi-ho-larious, nothing you submit, or anyone submits from you, will ever be included in this thread again.
    * Do not send repeat submissions. If it doesn't show up, it's not going to.
    * Do not send me stories. This is specifically for quotes. It must be posted somewhere on GR before you can quote it.

    You may post comments, but don't feel like you have to. The less clutter there is, the easier it will be for readers to find the actual content.

    If you win, you can come to my house, Bret. But not vice versa. :p

    Good luck dude. I'm glad people enjoyed it when I was doing it every weekend, but I'm trying not to work on Saturday and Sunday anymore (I don't get paid for it) and there really wasn't a lot of participation. Who knows, maybe this will be like Futurama or Family Guy. God speed De-Ting! I'll send anything I see your way.

    I never bothered, because no one ever nominated me when I was being hilarious. Which was always.

    Truthfully, I sorta liked the whole "ask a question, front page the answers" format better.

    What's the point of TPS?

    I mean, I got nominated for a COLDPLAY pun, you guys obviously don't know what funny is.

    The point was to sort of grow and incubate the commenting and the forums and the whole community. I'd say it worked to a point, but then after that point it didn't work.

    I liked it, I just think the lack of...functionality on the main site didn't help.

    ~Week 1~

    Since I received no entries, these are all my picks.

    First off, a witty observation from cyberjim:
    MattAY tells a joke:
    Longo expresses his feelings about air travel:
    Bretimus shares something so funny, it makes it's way into two signatures:
    And the front page feature; Bretimus tells Keri what he thinks about MLP fans::
    ---
    Didn't see what you wanted to? Make sure to PM it to me in quote format before a week has passed, and it'll have a better chance of being featured.

    Got the first submission from Dan this week, from the front page:
    HK-47 responds to becoming Darth Vader in MattAY's sprite comic:
    intoTheRain's pooper attracts some funny remarks:
    Oregon Trail pioneer Lien requests some of Danny's free oxen:
    And used44 shares something magical with the community:

    So yeah, this week was slow and boring.
