Dave99
07-30-01, 06:03 PM
Actually, it's more if any kind of pest/animal removal service is desired or needed, not just cruelty. Or if the idea of drinking animal blood comes up. :D

As well, he has to be mentioned (usually by moi) if hair or hairiness comes up, as he is a bigfoot.

And whenever there are loony religious wackos:p he has to be talked about as well.;)

Bushdog
07-30-01, 06:15 PM
If anyone mentions leaving the forum for an amount of time, you must recount the sadness you had when youtoo left the forum.

Any time there is a discussion of the elderly or ancient history you must make a joke about classicman being old.

Hehe...and other interesting stories by Otters.

794. Nude pictures must be linked, though 'tic-tacs' are ok. (Also, picks of 'bare' watermelons are also subject to linking, to some ppl, that is porn. :)

795. No Otter shall use nair 'down there'...we have learned from younger and less mature boards that this is a "bad idea".

796. For every stupid person out there, there are dumber people. People of the Otter variety seem to find "The Dumbest Person Ever" on a weekly basis...and no, they aren't ALL from arkansas.

797. Refer to Rule #1 for any questions about posting pics of hot women. A variety of angles and positions are needed, to make sure shadows and funny lightening don't obscure the person.
