The best thing about TC is you don't have to explain your weird tiki obsession to everyone you meet.

"Well you see, remember those old polynesian bars, and uh, well you drank these drinks in these mugs that.... ahh f*ck it."

Exactly! I actually go out of my way to not bring it up to people I meet and I never wear aloha shirts to work because 99.9% of people think those shirts mean "party animal" or "Jimmy Buffet fan" (or both!). Tiki will never be a huge commodity so I no longer feel the urge to evangelize.

Happy Anniversary Finky!

The one true most important thing I have learned on TC? Check your spelling & grammer or suffer the wrath of Tiki Bong!!

Oh so sorry - you are correct. But he does kind of sulk around here like a Wraith, pouncing on your young nubile throat when you least expect him..........

Grammar! (meant unwraithfully...)

I've learned to keep the giant, unabridged dictionary at hand, unless I'm trying to incur the wrath of Tiki Bong.

This is the only place where I feel normal about this kind of thing. Most people don't get it...

Maybe it should change from TC to Tiki Nuts Annonymous?

No one else understands, which is kinda why I like it! But it does suck having to explain it to everyone.

Harley riders have a saying "If you have to ask why, you won't understand". (I paraphrased cause I can't remember the exact words)

Finky... happy anniversary! you've progressed incredibly over the past year!

Hewey, i know what you mean. I had my latest tiki in my office for a fellow employee to pick up, and another manager walked by and asked what that was. I told her it was a tiki, and she says, "What's a tiki?" i had to explain the whole concept to her and she just didn't get it. i mean, she never even heard of the word tiki!

Yeah, but now I have to explain why I am drinking beer in a Tiki bar to all y'all
Seriously though, I haven't met so many funny and interesting people anywhere else, well except maybe in detention while in jr high.
