3-month pro membership coupon


I've got a 3-month pro membership coupon to give away.
I paid for 2 years, so I don't need it right now.

So - make your pitches.

Offer concluded at the weekend:

Uh, I got another, so I made a 0.5s snap-decision, and gave it to Michel.

?!


I didn't care what the reasoning was, but remember that I'm old and have a warped-sense of humour.

Hay, you've got that little "Pro" tag now... You're welcome, as I said - snap-decision, no deliberation.

Mm, I'll just say YO MAN I ONE FOR THE HOME TEAM EHH??
lemonie (author)  KentsOkay4 years ago
Well that's a sound reason, formally known as... (damn, I can't remember now) L
Favoritism?
Nepotism, but only if you two are dating...
.and that's all relative depending if you are in AK, YMMV.

I can has?
Awww...somebody misspelled "haz". :-D
I can HAZ?
:-D Well, you haz to ask Lemonie :-) If the whale works, congratulations! If not, I guess it was a .... wait for it ... Fail Whale.
that would make a tale... I do appreciate the cartoonannotation though.
You might say a whale of a tale.....or a whale tail, but only if you tailor it to the subject at hand.....whereas a whale in the hand is worth two in the back yard pool....ok, I'll stop now.
You can stop the blubbering.
HA ! Fat chance
That doesn't sound safe.....so it can't be "fail safe" either.
I lol'd!
lemonie (author)  nepheron4 years ago
Does you wants? You've produced some good stuff, but Michel
comes across as more needy at the moment...

L
Me want. You give me token, I give you...hmmm... Picture of whale? You can have all the rights and stuff If michel can beat that, I'll raise the offer to something more tangible XD

But how will bender get away from this...

With a little help from robot santa ofcourse!

(For you who have not watched the futurama episodes (shame on you) this one is from "a tale of two santa's" bender get's sentenced to death for being santa (santa in the futurama universe is a crazy robot who thinks all people are naughty and should be punished) so he's sentenced to death by the "magneto executioner" but he's saved just in time by the real santa :D

So what you thought of already happend :p
santa to the rescue.jpg
Foiled by santa...hmmm...but try getting away from Chuck Norris...

The puppies are going to cry if you don't give it to me...they are already starting to whimper :(

Aww (:
Come on look how cute they are, you can't do that to them.
lemonie (author)  JaredsProjects4 years ago
mm, but what are you going to do to the puppies if I don'...t? L
Nothing...they are to fn cute...or maybe I could send them across the pond and let them make your yard their own personal "loo".

And you can't deny Gollum of his precious pro membership..urmm...well icon.

How do I not deserve the 3 month pro membership...?!?
lemonie (author)  zascecs4 years ago
I see a 100% Featured on your page (but only 3 I'bles). Answered qu-est'ions too, and I've seen you around.
A Pro-membership, hard to argue, the membership - you're in with the rest.

My Precious...

A free membership? Gimme that! Woobwoobwoobwoobwoob! (eats pro membership coupon)
*quits zoidberg accent*

Very Lame pitch I know but I'm hoping you're malfunctioning so bad that you"ll give me the subscription anyway. Then there will be no dogfood for Victor... ehr Michel tonight!

Other then that I can give you the link to a website that is holding a countdown to the new futurama season (I follow it religiously) by showing one piece of art, episode each and every workday t'ill the season start :) (but you probably know this site already)

The site is: http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/2010/06/01/countdown-to-futurama-bender-and-roberto-in-jail/
You got my vote!

Sorry you didn't get mine before.
Thanks :) No worries there friend :) It was a fair competion and it was very friendly of you to do such a thing for another member. This site is just wonderfull and full of wonderfull people who like to help eachother. I'm very glad to be a part of it :)
You have my vote too! As for the competition before-hand... I guess we were both in it to win it. And you deserved the Pro membership just as much as I did. I hope you win this one! You really deserve it!
lemonie (author)  MichelMoermans4 years ago
He heh, that's amusing, and I see you around a bit. You could weigh in how poor you are as a student...

L
Well luckily I never nailed my legs to the table :p Yeah, I can't spend much money on anything. I got to pay part of my education myself and my mom won't let me get a part time job because then I couldn't completely focus on my learning according to her... :(

What's orange and sounds like a parrot?

A Macaw? L

A carrot!
lemonie (author)  Jayefuu4 years ago
uuuuuuuuuh... L
*sigh, fn amateurs*

Someone who just shot himself with oodammo and was choking on it.  wait, that would be blue and sounds like an eejiet.  Nevermind.
Jayefuu was choking a parrot ? Oh wait, that would be garrotting a parrot.
Want a cracker for that polly foie gras?
not if he is an un-safe cracker. . .
That's why people only use precision nutcrackers.
There's a difference between precision and accuracy. Not understanding that is the difference between a nutcracker and a nipple clamp.
the difference between precision and accuracy is like the difference between squares and rectangles; all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares ;-) Orientation ftw.
My ferret declines on the merits.

L,

- Because I am a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. :)

- Because if you give me the patch, I will invite you over to my house and serve you homemade Mint-Tea Lemonade and Boiled Raisin Cake made from my grandmother's recipe.

- Because you are a wonderful, sweet, funny, knowledgeable and very helpful guy.

The flattery is real & sincere, and much more is readily available upon request. :)
The bribery is virtual, but I would promise to publish 'Ibles with those recipes during my 3 months of Lemonie-powered Pro memebership.

I personally don't see what would be wrong with your being paid up for 27 months, but would be very happy to recieve the coupon nonetheless. :)

- G

In the lead so far, but I'd originally intended to donate to someone who didn't have membership already. We'll see... L
Gorfram lemonie4 years ago
Thanks. I do understand your preference for Pro-oritizing someone not already Pro-ified. OTOH, if you would like an argument based on financial need, I'd be happy to post a picture of me burning something as inspired by above-mentioned students. ;) - G

Your record-player or used-tissue collection? L
Gorfram lemonie4 years ago
Ya got me. :)

I was thinking of either lighting some lengths of yarn I want to do a burn test on to see whether they're wool or synthetic, or else carmelizing some sugar (and then thinking up some sort of carmelized-sugar thing to make).
Considered actually burning a perfectly good piece of toast, but it seems such a waste...

:) G
lemonie (author)  Gorfram4 years ago
Caramellised-bread?
I'm thinking of "toffee-croutons" or something, and if you don't do it I might at the weekend...

L
Gorfram lemonie4 years ago
Toffee croutons may be a little further "out there" than I want to go... I was thinking more of something like a caramel icing/frosting - which, it suddenly occurs to me, would be the perfect topping for Grandma's Boiled Raisin Cake. :)

Pitches? please explain
kelseymh Emsaid4 years ago
I don't think that's good enough. Lemonie's sense of humor is warped, but not that warped.
You rang?
>lurches to a stop<
You got my vote!

Sorry you didn't get mine before.
As in pitch an idea why lemonie should give me his patch ? Why, because.. well I don't know :S
lemonie (author)  scraptopower4 years ago
Yep, as in a "sales pitch" L
Gorfram lemonie4 years ago
Aw, shucks, L. Here I was getting ready to offer you your pick of pitches:
  • a slider, knuckleball, or change-up
  • 440 Hz, B#, or High C
  • pine sap, birch tar, or cedar resin
  • 4:12, 15º, or a snow-shedding 6 inch rise over 12 inches of run
  • Lord's, The Oval, or (in case you've been at all troubled lately by podes, and might like something Antipodean) MCG
;) G
