Whoever chose it this year should continue to do so for the next few years.

Drunk Larry is always accurate in theme production...

I should have put a billion chimpanzees at a billion typewriters for a billion years, and the best is the theme.

ok scenario of community chosen themes


last years theme of "burn shit and blow stuff up" was a resounding success this years theme is "Burn stuff and blow shit up"
completely unconcerned.
"Savannah" I like it . . . it makes us sound forward-thinking, and not at all like trailblazing, professional-level procrastinors.

the thousand monkeys/typewriter scenario works for Shakespeare only, I think. It just takes one for a theme. Now, go get Mommy a theme.

Matt Groening and Isotopia, in committee. No one leaves the room 'til agreement is reached.

I can't decide between "Humor in Uniform" or "Go Get Mommy Another Drink." I nominate James Brown's timeless album title, "For Goodness Sakes, Would You Look at Those Cakes?"
