Someone was taking notes of a "last ditch meeting" (I think with her parents - it was a "come to Jesus meeting" if you are from the Deep South in the USA).  When she looked at her notes later, the word "deer snot uprising" was what she'd jotted down instead....

On the other hand, the situation with her parents (father?  father-in-law?) was pretty nasty.  Which deer snot uprising would also be...
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Whackaloon.  I heard it here and I've used it a few time IRL. 

The background for racist bagels and cavorting snowpeople wasn't true?  It's been so many years, but it was a good story.

I haven't seen it used in years but, when posters thought someone was getting into a bad situation, we would hear, 'Run like a citizen of Tokyo fleeing Godzilla!'

I don't remember the details but it eventually came out that the poster had made up a lot of stories.

I heard batpoo crazy and beandip way before eHell so I don't think eHell originated those terms.  ?

I remember hearing batpoo crazy (except the swear word was there) when I was a child, so it's definitely not from E-Hell.


Yes, Snooks, oatmeal smelling like poverty is from here.
The problem with choosing the lesser of two evils is that you're still choosing evil.

So Interesting Assumption isn't ours - it was heard elsewhere and brought here.

That's right.  Someone came here specifically to post what she overheard.  Everyone loved it and it started using it in real life and found how effective it can be.

I know I first heard "bat-poo crazy" on here, and it has since made its way into my everyday speech.  (Well, not EVERY day, but my normal lexicon at least!)

Nah, that one - in its various forms - is all over the place.  I like the "guanopsychosis" variant myself.  :D

Oh yes.  I remember that Scritzy posted a photo of herself standing on a big Coke sign.

I must've missed that picture!  Is there a link to it?

Also, racist bagels?  Tried searching for it but couldn't find it.  If anyone has a link, I'd like to read it.  :)  Thanks!

The story about the racist bagels came from a post about a 'Teacher Appreciation Day' breakfast.  Bagels, spreads, coffee and juice were provided for the teachers. 

Because bagels are associated with a particular religious and/or ethnic group, the Crazy HOA Lady filed a protest that the breakfast was 'racist'. 

Yes, some of the stories did seem a bit over the top but people like he crazy HOA Lady do exist.

Here are links to the racist bagels and cavorting snowpeople stories.   They are over-the-top, completely made up, and absolutely hilarious.
