As many will fondly remember, this incarnation of the board's millionth contribution was posted on 20 December 2007 by The Man From Del Monte (see here). Excitingly, in what seems like the blink of an eye, we are soon to see the breach of the 'magic' two-million-posts barrier.

This morning Flure posted the 1,991630th post on the board. This leaves, by my calculations, a mere 8,370 to go! My guess is that the two millionth post will be made on Thursday 6 October 2011. I also predict that it will have nothing to do with Scottish football and that it will contain a sweary word.

Edit: This was the 1,991,635th post on the board.

15/1? 15/1?

I'll think you'll find that the odds of me ever posting a poor joke are way, way higher than that.

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Nick Clegg, and him being our deputy prime minister.

The old farmer said, "Well, ya know, Nick is just a Post Tortoise."

Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked,

What's a "Post Tortoise?"

The old farmer said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a Tortoise balanced on top, that's a post Tortoise."

The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he sure as hell isn't going anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb Rooney put him up there in the first place."

It's inane twaddle of the Flure / Uddyredz variety that's already making me think I need to bring forward my predicted date.

Last time allyhunter offered a 'rummage in his magic sack' for the winner of the date sweep - if anyone wants to trawl through the archived thread it should reveal who was awarded that particular thrill. It was suggested that the poster of the millionth post be presented with a Twix by Admin. The Man from Del Monte, afaia, never revealed if this took place.
