I've put my Shecky lamp up for sale... considering Shecky is the mascot for Tiki Central, I figured you should know about it first!

Ohhh... So THAT'S the Shecky that everyone has been referring to! Now it all makes sense (well, sort of...) I knew I'd seen it before somewhere - Sven sent me a sticker with Shecky on it and the phrase:

"Less Virtual Reality,
More Ritual Virility"

If Shecky is the Tiki Central mascot, is this then the Tiki Central motto?

There was much debate back in the day whether or not that was our motto, some liked it, many didn't understand it. But it survives on the stickers!

I thought it was a great motto, and still do.

Uhm, some liked it, some maybe "didn't understand it", but there were others who were quite capable of fully comprehending its meaning but just plain didn't like it.

I think of Tiki Central's motto as "Open 24 Hours". I like it quite a bit, though I don't understand it.

....speaking of "dont understand"!
Your little sarcastic jabs are annoying.
You should change your name to "NEGATOR" instead of "woofmutt"
or possibly check into some anger management.

SHECKY RULES!

It's "The Negator" when I'm working the Northwest Wrestling circuit.

I find Woofmutt's little jabs quite refreshing, even when aimed directly at the spine.

TikiCentral would lose a lot of it's bounce if it all went Happy Clappy or Moist & Musical.

I agree on the Shecky point, tho'.

Not too worry, if we do all go happy clappy or moist & musical I have some doctor friends...put us back right as rain. Their fees are cheap as chips, too.

London & Dublin in spring '03? I hopes!

I appreciate sarcasm, when it is actually humorous.
I don't appreciate sarcasm when it is hateful or mean spirited.

It seems lately that a lot of members are becoming offended easily. When one posts an opinion like "I don't like that mug, it's ugly" or "let's stick to the topic", it's never meant to be personal and one shouldn't feel like they are being attacked. Forums like this are for discussing things that we don't have to all agree on. If everyone agreed on everything then it would be a boring world.

"Can't we all get along?" has been asked so many times here. Hell no, we can't always get along because everybody's different! I don't see a problem with that.

When one reads a post it is often a mistake to assume the author was in any particular mood when they wrote it or that the author is trying to show an emotion. This is a common trap people fall into on the internet or in email. With some people their sense of humor really comes through in their posts, while for others it's not as easy for them to be funny.

I don't think woofmutt meant anything personal against bigbadtikidaddy. He was just trying to be funny in his own way.

Now that I'm through rambling I'll throw in my 2 cents on the lamp. I'm not a big fan of "big teeth" tikis so I don't really like it. This is my opinion, no matter how unpopular it may be, and I mean no offense to anyone, especially Shecky. It's just my stupid opinion!

Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke....

But not really.......I truly doubt that anyone here has malice in their heart. Read the post and if offended, read it once again. There's usually an element of a tongue in the cheek, so don't get too hot and sweaty about a post.

Eg. - I'm convinced that a significant part of my British humour goes down like a lead shit in a Chilean well, but dem's da breaks, eh?
