Will he wonk her?

Post by TC » Mon Oct 01, 2001 10:41 pm

Someone brought in a bag of misc candies for the workplace, it being the Halloween season and all. In this bag were some of my all-time classic candy favorites that I hadn't seen (let alone eaten) in years! I was stoked. So, in honor of that, I see a fitting time for me to test out this cool new 'poll' thingy. I know, "Another one??", but hey.... :lol:

That's odd, DBurtons poll above comes up as the options where this one just comes up as the results :? I'd have to vote for nerds from the list, but really they are a sweet by themselfs and not something you'd expect to find in bag. What are bottle tops? Are they like milk duds? Anyways fizy cola bottles are better.

AAAAAAHHHHHHH! Hubba Bubba was the best thing to ever happen to gum!! I'm in the midwest USA. We get nothing (and like it).

Odd about the poll not showing up properly.

And if you don't know what BottleCaps are, you're missing out!! No, they're not Whoppers, they're sort of bottle-capped in shape (hence the name :) ) and are various flavors, with my personal fav being root beer!

Ah, joy. BTW, I think Hubba Bubba was the first gum to ever come out with blueberry as a flavor.

did you put a limit on the poll or leave it unlimited? maybe that could cause others not to be able to vote. i've also noticed that once you've voted you can't vote again, and anonymous users cannot vote either - they auto get results.

:D I can vote now! Maybe I couldn't vote because I was logged in when it was posted so I had to go away? (don't know why that would make any difference, but..) I think these bottlecaps sound alright (is root beer ginger beer?) Personally I always liked cola hubba bubba, I can remember now why it was good, you could shovel a couple of packs into your mouth at once and then try and breathe whilst having something the size of (squidgy) tennis ball in your mouth.

You couldn't vote because someone changed the vote_desc.vote_length field type back from int(11) to tinyint(4) which screwed up the storage of the non-zero timestamp thus causing the poll to think it should close ... I've corrected that now so it should be fine again :)

Mmmm... Candy cigarettes.

Cigarettes are still candy for me! :D

I haven't had one for over two weeks now, though. I can feel my uber-admin powers fading... nooooo!!! Hehehhehe!

Come on, gotta go with Big League Chew. The guy who came up with it, Jim Bouton, is friends with my brother. Wait, hang on, I know his brother. That's right. Anyway, i've blown 6-inch diameter bubbles, then taken them out and frozen them (they shrink a little). Then, when they are nice and hard, I fill them with water and freeze that. Vuala, ice ball in the middle of summer. Great for when you have nothing to do and (i live on a side street) people are driving 600000 miles per hour, likely to smush the kids down the street. Ya take your gum/ice ball, and chuck it at the guy's car. If you're lucky, you crack his window, then run back inside and write a coupla lines of code while he tries to find ya. So candy can be sweet in so many ways...
