Start with the first page and then skip to the last. Nothing has been accomplished by the OP since Page 1.

Orangecrush claiming rock star spit was refreshing at a concert has to be top 3.

That’s the one. Re-reading some of it makes me laugh all over again. The OP was completely blindsided by the Otter reaction.

Very hard decision, but Alan's landlord thread is kind of epic. But best of all time? I'll have to think about this.

Looking at those bumped threads... Otter was awesome until I showed up.

Not so. Now he is buying weatherproof containers to store things outside his apartment.

And he sold his windmill. Plus Greg the Cat no longer seems to be around, so that's at least two things gone!

But the Malaysian airliner reappeared, so it's a wash.

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

Reading these classic threads makes me feel like the newbie that I am.

OTOH, Alan's thread spans other threads and generates laughs (and love!) wherever it goes, in a way that's somehow unique ...

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

Who was the member that had a couple of people convinced he was Tila Tequila? I can’t really remember now if that was contained to one thread or more of an ongoing thing, though.

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

All great suggestions, but how can we vote on them? There is a maximum of 25 choices for a poll.

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

Lots of threads bring the laughs. The crayon threads were the high point of specific to DVDTalk forum awesomeness. But for the combination of humor, dvdtalk members sharing, and actually benefitting people, Alan’s hoarder thread is tops imho.

If need be a few polls with top winners advancing to final poll?

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

I remember adoring the fuck outta the "From Justin To Kelly" thread, where that one poster was defending that POS movie to death, telling any and all critics to "OMG! STFU!"

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

I had forgotten about DeltaSigChi4. What a violent whackjob he was! My favorite story was when he took his verbal test to be a police officer, he thought he had done really, really well. Um, dude? A little later the exam board told him that he was unsuited to be a police officer.

Ah, the Infidel’s Drinkman thread(s?) deserve a spot.

Is there a "best of" Drinkman, with a compilation of all Drinkman threads? I don't want to have to look all of them up.

I guess let's see how many suggestions we get and then we'll have playoff polls if necessary. When we get to 25, I guess I'll leave the poll open until the end of the year.

Re: TOAT - Thread of All Time

Some of you have brought up some classic threads that I had completely forgotten about, like the lost & found, and refreshing.

But the two threads that immediately came to mind were the crayon and dating advice threads.

Perhaps the threads I've laughed the most with were some of the Photoshop threads. Unfortunately, there's probably not much left to read from those threads now, with Photobucket changing its terms and other dead links.

There are a few threads but sometimes The Infidel would be bless a random thread with a Drink-Man cartoon or two as well.

Return of witty comics

the Long way": the new Drink-Man comic

The Return of Witty Comics (formerly known as the Drinkman Chronicles)

Drink-Man 2: Drink Harder

Yes these come to mind immediately for me as well. I would probably have to put the dating advice thread of Mhg83 at the top. That turned into such a bizarre journey.
