If they're "goddesses" and they're offering "face value" isn't that code for blow jobs?

Wow. Bad poetry, birgins, goddesses and "LED entertainment" to trade. Do I even want to know?

Has someone created a Venn diagram of goddesses and sparkleponies?

I really don't have anything else to add, but I thought I should at least post to let you know I have been enjoying the commentary.

Based on your experience, do you think these are mutually exclusive events?
We need to know the possibilities.

Honestly, I am more interested in celestial brothers and sun sisters.

I think "celestial brothers"' and "soul sisters" should count as keywords worth the same number of points as "soul mate."
+25 points for having a meltdown in your ticket-begging thread in response to criticism/snark. Bonus +50 if, mid-meltdown, you claim to be especially enlightened.

I'd say that "celestial brothers" means something to do with man on man love, but it would sound homophobic...

And no, goddesses and sparkleponies are not mutually exclusive. There is over lap, more than 50% worth. But not 100, I think. So what is the overlap? And what are other relevant classes that should be included...

No Score Boys? I'm disappointed.... We were just wanting to know how to get tickets.. No Weirdness.. No sexual stuff. We are good people. New to the Burning board. We have friends in the burning community, but instead of bugging them about tickets we are Honestly trying to get them in a more creative way, our selfs.. We are a little late I know. We are Wishing on Luck. I love the banter can't wait to play!

Heh... you found the secret snickering lounge!

Wait, uh... this is where I'm supposed to do some kind of Jedi mind trick and make you forget you ever saw this place...

Didn't work, huh?

Well... welcome to the snickering lounge. Pull up a barstool and have a drink.

I think we need a "doggerel bonus" for posts like this.

Also, what about a "grilled cheese" bonus? I've seen that pop up more than once.

Doggerel bonus: Definitely.

Grilled cheese bonus: Yeah, I was thinking the same. Since the epic grilled-cheese-sandwich-maker post, which was (deservedly) successful, people seem to be repeating the words "grilled cheese" as though they were magic. Perhaps a new ePlaya superstition is being born? I wonder if the bonus should be generalized to something like "gift plagiarism?" That might be too vague. Perhaps specific things like "grilled cheese" need to be added to the list as they come up.

I think any "gift plagiarism" should be a +25 at least since it shows both a lack of creativity and a level of desperation.

If they mention how creative they are (or how many skills they have) while plagiarizing it should be +50.
