Veteran Fodorites - What's your favorite thread?

I'm fairly new to the forum, and I enjoy it quite a bit. I really like long, interesting threads, but one only runs into these now and then. I find debates to be interesting, and humor is even better. Does anyone have a favorite thread that they would like to share with newer readers? Extra special bonus points for taking the time to bring it to the top.

Thanks.

My favorite was one posted on tax day last year, called "Is everyone here immensely wealthy?" or something similar to that. I realized after reading that thread that I was not the only person in America who budgeted, saved and sacrificed things in order to travel, and boy was that a nice feeling!

Drnk Mom's Travel Limericks and the parent thread having to do with mom and jail - but the search function won't give it to me!
I also appreciated the thread on what to do with photos/postcards/souvenirs etc...

The one Sally refers to is "I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison" and it has had me rolling on the floor laughing.

The one about the gay place in Spain was interesting too- I've forgotten its name

There are several I enjoyed enough to print out and save:
Take your geese come when you leave (which I moved to the top)
Why do you travel?
And, a while back Wes responded to a post using the names of places for other words: Wes, could you reprint, please?

Paris bridges was hysterical.
I also loved responding to and reading the responses of others on the thread about moments when you thought you had entered a parallel universe. Only I can't remember what it was actually called.

There was a thread called:
Who are you? asking Fodorites to describe who they were, what they did, and their interest in travel. I thought it was very interesting..... Paul J

At Diane's request,
Since many of you AAR not CLERVAUXant, I'd BEST explain Diane's posting. SOMME TIME ago, I ERD by calling Giverney "Givenchy" INN resPONSe to a Fodor's POSTA. Hee, HEE, what a MUSTEK, readers must have thought, and I don't blame THEM. NOTA BRAINE in his head. As dumb as a THUM. AHA, they thought: Fowler, a GOLDEN AGER, IZE a SCHEER LEATHERHEAD. They SEE he's a real SCILLY LOUNY with no SENS despite the word TECH in his address. He should give up his MARTIGNYs and CHAMPAGNE and switch to AQUA LONGA and BOSCO.

Enough! Does anyone know where Hee, Mustek, Them, Aha, Tech and Louny are?

The one that made me laugh the most was the drunken, mother, prison thing. However, Wes' post mentioned above was about the most clever I have encountered here.

Wes, I know that Mustek is a metro stop in Prague. Based on that knowledge, I found that Louny is also in the Czech Republic. Are the others there too?

Well, one that I started about "rules to use but don't abuse" started a riot...from washcloths to "haggis in a tube". If I were not a Foders die-hard, the responses and the lunacy would have put me off...but everyone had fun, and we have since revisted some of the topics, like "shared" bath facilities, which, incidentally are a reality many parts of Europe. search on the above "rules to use but not abuse" for the time of your life.
