    I think we should at least prepare to have a few of our favourites this year; for example:

    Prose thread
    Favourite poster 2013 thread

    I went to the company Christmas party,
    we were all merry hale and hearty.
    But then the drink began to flow
    and things went sour don't you know.

    The Boss did grope the payroll clerk,
    he never spoke to her at work.
    She slapped him hard and realized,
    she lost the job that she once prized.

    A supervisor others did hate,
    went to the toilet and then too late,
    noticed that the lights went out
    and then there came a mighty shout.

    He fell to the floor under a mighty weight.
    A voice said to him let's get this straight.
    I never really did like you
    then he was beaten black and blue.

    Outside on the dance floor an odd couple did lurch.
    For God's sake you two find a room or a church.
    We'll marry you off in a whirlwind style
    and later all the regrets you can compile.

    The drink did flow and things got worse
    an ambulance came two paramedics and a nurse.
    The supervisor was whisked quickly away
    three men in jail, released next day.

    Statements taken, I saw nothing.
    Too busy watching the dance floor rutting.
    Police had to sort it all out
    but too much alcohol created much doubt.

    Out! They said, put them all on the street!
    Aches in the head and unsteady on the feet.
    We can never go there again.
    What about next year? Where and when?

    Worth posting in full. I miss Ice Cold, he was a good bloke despite being a bit of a tool.


    By Ice Cold

    T'was the Knight before Chessmas, and all round the site,
    not a troll was stirring, not one forum fight.
    The mockings were done, with fun in their minds,
    not one forum poster has shown their behinds.

    The chess nerds were all tucked away in their beds,
    while visions of checkmates danced in their heads.
    And Trev's mom in her teddy sat on my lap,
    I knew I was to be active and not take a nap.

    When in the chess forum there arose such a fight fest,
    over the stupidest question, it gave me such unrest.
    About which chess set is best.

    They talked sets made of plastic, sets made of stone,
    sets made of glass and even made from bone.

    They argued ad nauseam why their set was the best.
    About the weight and feel and why they passed their test.

    Only three out of nineteen posters, promoted sets made from wood.
    What with the deforestation, the carbon footprint was not good.

    I sulked down in disgust, as no one metioned Jaques of London.
    When Forum Mod came, and then the thread was done.

    Forum Mod set us straight about such a fight.
    He said, "Merry Chessmas to all, and to all a wood Knight."
