I was going to suggest an Apathy award, but I couldn't be fcuked!:zzz:

19th Mar 2005, 11:25
Can I nominate myself for the most boring WWW link on a profile? :8

19th Mar 2005, 11:30
Awards for services for 2005 tis only March

Just play the game ;)

How about TNT for the most posts ???

Can I nominate myself for the funniest link with this entrance, or should I say exit???

19th Mar 2005, 14:00
angels obviously gonna win most observed/used www link then...

19th Mar 2005, 14:37
SLFguy - I humbly accept your nomination.....:ok:

19th Mar 2005, 14:48
Cessna, the Web Sense filter here at work lables your link as "Tasteless"..........I'm very curious.

My nomination for Best first posting by a new PPruner is this one by Hazatude (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=161811)

Best Action thread nomination has to be the BMW recall thread (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=167109). Israeli martial arts sounds great!

Jet Blast Hall of Fame nomination for Scran and Pigboat for their excellent Music Quizzes.

Best non-porn link by Plazbot (his Tobzalp incarnation) of Fire ze Missiles (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=120534)

Best PPrune username nomination for Fishtits (still gonna name my boat that!!!)

Personally, I think this thread by Ric (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=110300) rates as my nomination for Best thread ever

Most confusing thread is this one by Tonic Please (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=166999)

And Worst PPruner ever has to be the asswipe who keeps linking "Win a free iPod/DVD Player/whatever" every couple of weeks (I would nominate that prick The Govnor, but that guy can just burn in hell)

cessna l plate
19th Mar 2005, 14:58
A web filter may label my link as tasteless, and in that respect it probably is. If you were to go to this guys live show, I imagine that you could have all the taste you want!!!!

Tasteless???? More like a grown up version of schoolboy humour, and bloody funny into the bargain!

19th Mar 2005, 15:04
Don't shoot the messenger. I'll have to check it out when I get home.

No problem Jerricho, just don't laugh too loud or the missus will want to know what you are giggling at, and women don't find this sort of thing funny, infact I've just been labeled as disgusting by my own sweet little acid bath

Does need speakers though!

19th Mar 2005, 16:39
Best thread ever can only by The Really Really Boring and Totally Pointless Snippets of Information Thread - so good they named it four times!


So what are the prizes? I think Drapes would quite like a Howitzer?

Thread which made me stop and think abour life and stuff.

Has to be the one in Aviation History and Nostalgia

Tales of An Old Aviator .... The Big Chill

I can identify in some areas with that thread, and a few weeks back, when I found it, yes, it was for certain a thread that did indeed make me pause for a long thought or three.

19th Mar 2005, 17:54
Best thread ever. Best? Tricky. There have been a few - in fact, see funniest below.

How about a thread killer booby prize award?

We'll see how long this thread lasts now....hehehehehe!! (Evil cackle a la Muttley):ok:

19th Mar 2005, 20:27
*Ignoring SRT*

We have had a nomination for this thread (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=129242) . A little unsure of which category (it could be Action I guess), but I think it fits better in Funniest thread ever

SRT, I want a word word with you mate. Outside, now.

19th Mar 2005, 20:55
I'd like to second (or third etc..) the one in History and Nostalgia "Tales of An Old Aviator .... The Big Chill" as one of the best reads ever.

As for funny threads....

ATC Humour is always good for a chuckle......

Regards, SD..

The anagram of M.O.L. who on certain Ryanair threads is defending the/his company quite well. :E

S.C. :ok:

20th Mar 2005, 15:23
Personally, I think the nomination I have received for Best Thread being anything posted by Onan is a little suspect :E

20th Mar 2005, 16:39
Hey scran, I'll vote for you if you'll vote for me! :E

Gotta agree with Bluey re Tony Draper, Davaar and The Duke.

I nominate Astrodome for his Friday Joke thread. Well they make me smile, anyway.

Bob Upandown, Burnt fishtrousers and Devlin Carnate just gotta be considered for best names. :ok:

I nominate Jerricho for bringing the most characters out of the JB woodwork. ;)
That should get me a few brownie points. :)

20th Mar 2005, 17:35
Oh yeah.......

Can I nominate my M-I-L for worst PPruner?

20th Mar 2005, 19:49
Just a few:

Best thread: TRRBATPSOIT Mk.1 - 4

Worst thread: All those where people insult each other. And on quite a different level: TRRBATPSOIT Mk.1 - 4, for being so addictive and RRBATP.

Best Ppruner(s): Falps, Drapes, Davaar, sometimes even Jerricho, and the TRRBATPSOIT crew, of course.

Funniest thread ever: There were some, but angelsī "Oh Gawd I just farted" (or something like that) sticks in mind.

Edited to add the Thread which made me stop (but not think of life etc.): I recall a thread (was it a thread or just a posting?) about saluting crows. Ever since, whenever I see a crow I think of that thread (but I can refrain from saluting...!)

20th Mar 2005, 20:17

Wasn't that a magpie (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=1418380#post1418380) (aka Elster, pie, urraca, straka, gazza, ekster)

:confused: :confused:


add my vote for TRRBATPSOIT (all marks) for the best thread

20th Mar 2005, 23:20
sometimes even Jerricho

Yeah, thanks.............I think

(you sound somewhat surprised)

20th Mar 2005, 23:44
Dear fellow PPRuNers,

In case of nomination, I would like to take this chance to thank you all and also offer my apologies for not being able to attend any eventual awards ceremony. However, I'd be more than pleased to be represented by The Invisible Man or The Invisible Cat.

Nevertheless, I'd like to take this advance opportunity to thank a few people for all their help, guidance and support:

William & Lawson's for their constant companionship.
Falps for her wisdom and perseverance in these forums.
My pudicats for accepting that only I can play with the mouse effectively.
T.I.M. for encouraging me to test the limits.
T.I.C. for making me realise the value of stealth.
And all the PPRuNers who've read my posts and not felt the need to report them to a moderator on too many occasions.

:{ :{ :{


20th Mar 2005, 23:50
Jet Blast Hall of Fame - Duke Elegant (RIP), Pilots Pal :ok: :E , Pigboat, Danny

Best thread - ANY MUSIC QUIZ....... :ok: :ok: :ok: :ok: :ok: :ok:


Best ppruners: Any one who enjoys the Music Quiz's, Munchkins :E , Danny for starting the whole thing, and all the Mods for keeping us on the straight and narrow

21st Mar 2005, 01:32

how disappointing... what about best non-English posting or best bi-lingual posting ?

7 7 7 7

P.S.: Sorry, I couldn't resist

21st Mar 2005, 01:33
Likewise I nominate scran for inventing the Music Quiz! :D :ok:

21st Mar 2005, 04:13
Likewise I nominate scran for inventing the Music Quiz!

[/Pedant mode "on"]

Sadly Piggy, Dingducky appears to have snuck in afore the inestimable scran, way back in 2001. :(

[/pedant mode "off"]

However, I'll nominate scran for improving the music quizes.

And both you and he for keeping it going. :ok:

(Just wish I could find more than a couple of minutes on a Monday morning to do it justice. :E )

21st Mar 2005, 07:12
Monsieur bre,

of course it was magpies! You were right, and I had a little bit too much of Chardonnay last night...

The Invisible Cat
21st Mar 2005, 07:16
Would you allow one to propose a new category : most reposted funny topic
Prompted by the recent exhumation of the "Cmabridge" stuff, but one's quite sure there are many other contenders :}

21st Mar 2005, 13:53
Does 2005 Jet Blast Awards mean only for Jet Blast or not?

If it doesn't, I'd like to mention E-Liam and Richard from Naples Flying Thingy for their selfless help in solving problems for and educating other Ppruners in the wonderful world of computer problems. Guys, you are the very essence of what a computer bulletin board should be. :ok:

If it's just JB, then Tony Draper must surely be the first entrant to the Hall of Fame.

For Best Ppruner, I second the nomination for a lady of style, wit, intelligence and substance She rarely feels it necessary to put her Jimmy Choo stiletto heel into anybody, but when she does, the victim comes away feeling grateful for the experience. Singaporegirl, take a bow.

Best thread: TRRBAPSOIT Mark 1/2.

Worst thread: The unbearable insiders clique of TRRABSOIT Mk 4. Sorry, people, it's unspeakable. :(

Worst Ppruner: Already nominated. The only entrant/s on my Ignore list.

I've forgotten what categories are left, but hey, this is JB, who cares? Make up one if necessary! A special mention to Scran & Pigboat for their terrific work on the Music Quizzes. :ok:

The "Take me as i am or fcuk off" award for the most unpretentious Ppruner: Redsnail.

If there were a category for people I'm very glad I've met even if only in cyberspace, there would be a dozen or so entries. I won't embarrass them here... and I'd like to thank Mum and Dad, and my primary school teacher, who encouraged me to... (what? get off where? ) .....................


21st Mar 2005, 14:20
The unbearable insiders clique of TRRABSOIT Mk 4.
I think you're mistaken in that assessment, Binos. There are more than fifty regular contributors and many more who post to it less frequently. It would have to be one of the very few threads where absolutely everyone is made welcome when they join in and where there has never been any nastiness by one contributor to another.

21st Mar 2005, 15:43
At TIC's request, there has been a new addition to the Awards:

Most repeated thread that was funny the first time, but not the 10th time

Buster Hyman
21st Mar 2005, 22:19
Perhaps a Biggest wind-up thread. I'd vote for Kaptin M's thread about the well known Prooner caught in a...err...compromising position with...umm..clothes of another gender on!!

22nd Mar 2005, 13:31
I've had another nomination for TIC's new category "The maintence come-backs" and 2 more nominations for Hall of fame.

Come on you lot..............

The Flying Lip
23rd Mar 2005, 04:33
.... if there is a prize for BashMeisters, I would nominate OzExpat, TwinAisle and Rabbit for the Cardiff extravaganza last summer.... four bloody days of it, my head still hurts.....

phoenix son
23rd Mar 2005, 07:57
Best PPruner - Phoenix Son, Onan, Jerricho, Falps, Binos, singaporegirl, E-Laim, Richard (Internet gurus), Redsnail

Crikey, would you look at that...Cheers Jerricho... :ok:

23rd Mar 2005, 13:38
I can think of two really good nominations for that category. See if you can guess.

23rd Mar 2005, 14:58

TnT ;)

23rd Mar 2005, 17:06
Is it just me or have we missed the funniest JBer of them all - Onan! Can't believe no-one's said anything - or is it implied already? And he does occasionally pop into us recluses in Private Flying to say hello.

So I vote for Onan for Best PPRuNer - the main man!


The Invisible Cat
23rd Mar 2005, 22:15
TnT the shark on can't remember who but comes out of the water
Yer mean this shark (http://www.pprune.org/forums/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=15631) ?

24th Mar 2005, 06:18
Or this one ...? :E


24th Mar 2005, 12:35
So you gotta watch out for Red Back Spiders AND bloody sharks in the dunny now :rolleyes: :uhoh:

24th Mar 2005, 20:01
My nomination for this category would be Paterbrat, who's beautifully florid derision (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=1472347#post1472347) of some of my posts in the Politics thread was sufficient to inspire my Pprune personal title, or Superhero chest ornament as he called it. :ouch:

If you would condescend to descend from the lofty pillar of moral righteousness from which you point your indignant finger and descend amongst the humanity you proclaim to be protecting so carefully you might see reality for what it is instead of the somewhat rosy display you have in the rarefied atmosphere you so obviously float in. ...so it would be fair to say that he's not entirely in agreement with me there then?

26th Mar 2005, 19:44
Back to the top.............because I'm sure there are some out there that have been postulating over their nominations.

(if Onan would stop nominating himself)

26th Mar 2005, 23:32
I'd like to nominate Nereus for the 'Most Unbelieveably Persisient Pigheaded Exasperating Troll' award!

Otherwise affectionately known as the 'Muppet'. ;)

27th Mar 2005, 01:19
I pop that one under "worst PPruner" then SC, shall I.

27th Mar 2005, 10:31
No. It was meant in good humour.
Can't we have a new category? I might even get a return nomination.
Oh! The lure of fame! :}

27th Mar 2005, 10:40
I nominate Syllogism for "easiest fishing catch of the day" :E ;)

27th Mar 2005, 10:49
Funniest Thread

I remember a thread started by someone telling a very long, very funny story about going to the toilet and the mess that followed. I might not normally go for toilet stories, but this one was exceptionally funny. I do hope someone can remember and find that thread. I tried searching for it, but without luck.

Was there an award for the cutest feline? If so, TIC wins, no doubt.

27th Mar 2005, 13:02
Did you mean this ?

"I Guess Arse Hair Does Have a Purpose"

Submitted by seaweed knees in June 2004

27th Mar 2005, 13:09
You people are sick. sick sick sick, and I'm sure Omaha would agree with me.

Jesus Christ that was a funny thread.

27th Mar 2005, 13:12
For those who don't know the one mentioned above, see here (http://www.pprune.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=132623&perpage=15&pagenumber=1)

No, but that was a very funny one too. It was a story about someone who went to the loo and "exploded" - at a restaurant if I recall - and they had to get an employee to get a hose and hose things down. It was quite a long story, well told.

If only I could remember who posted it, it would make the search easier....

Thanks for trying, Astrodome

27th Mar 2005, 13:12

I had totally forgotten about that thread.

Thank you.

27th Mar 2005, 13:21
Stormy - I think it may have been a link posted on that thread by Mr C Hinecap. It took you to AARSE which seems to be an army equivalent of Pprune.

I remember it well .......... not a thread for girls, however broadminded.

Why are men obsessed from the earliest age with A**ses and what comes out of them??


27th Mar 2005, 13:32
Is it This (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=50294&highlight=hose) one?

the one by somewhatconcerned

27th Mar 2005, 13:54
tart1 - no that wasn't it.

The one I am discussing was a JB thread, and it was the first post that had the story I described earlier, though I think there were some funny ones that followed.

For the record, I am female, and not usually remotely interested in this topic. However, I was just remembering one particularly funny thread...... Really, I'm quite conservative normally!!

Handspring Guy, that might be it. The post further down by somewhatconcerned is along the lines of what I remember, but not exactly. However, memory plays tricks, so it's probably it. Only problem, my memory had it funny and now I'm wondering how much wine I had consumed that night. Oh dear, to think I've caused a search on such a topic. Thank you, I think I'll retire quietly now. :)

Further reflection. This is it. How did you find it? It was way back in 2002, so no wonder I barely remember it. Well done, search over.

27th Mar 2005, 14:40
So relieved it has been found. StormyPetrel - you have probably caused many a fevered search today!!

I stand by what I said though - as you confirmed, you, a female, are not normally interested in this topic but most men are constantly fascinated by it.

To get back to the point .......... I wouldn't vote for it as the funniest thread. Sorry :(

27th Mar 2005, 22:52
tart1 - after all that, neither would I. :O

28th Mar 2005, 21:36
Vote for me and I'll buy you a pizza.

28th Mar 2005, 21:44
Not one of the skanky Pizza Pizza ones? :yuk: :yuk:

28th Mar 2005, 21:58
Chicago Style on Upper Sherman. Stuffed pizza pie.

It's what Jesus himself eats when he's in town.

tony draper
28th Mar 2005, 22:17
Slightly off topic here,was discussing Pizza with a mate a few days ago, he is fond of them, and one worked out that the first and last time one had tasted pizza was in NYC in the year 1961 ,tiz safe to assume one did not enjoy it.
They was called Pizza pies then.

29th Mar 2005, 00:09
I found this classic by Sprucegoose.
Impossible (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=10996)
Authentic Indonesian food (http://www.pprune.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=613627#post613627)

I can't find his classic story about farting in the Flight Deck whilst checking a crew. It was brilliant.
