An award for bravery in the face of ridicule and scorn (along with silliness and absurdity)

It gives me great pleasure tonight to award the Kingotis Memorial Thread title. The following decoration is bestowed individually upon Perseus and collectively upon all the commenters on TSFKA for their role in pushing Perseus' 'Weekend Wrap' thread to an all-time high count for TSFKA and for reminding all of us of the ancient glory that was TSSH.

Congratulations everyone. Wear this specially-commissioned MS Paint art with pride.

And also for reaching 150 posts, a special display of the inaugural Kingotis Memorial Thread award has been approved.

In other news, I'll be posting a Poetry Slam Friday tomorrow in place of Ramon (if there are no objections).

Perseus said...

It's beautiful!

This is the proudest moment of my life.

170+ comments on a blog with no coherent theme, no regular columns, no marketing, no organisation, no editing, no quality control or thought given to any post and no direction or goal is an awesome achievement. This award is for all of us.

I'd like to thank Stubbadub for offering me the chance to post here at TSFKA. I'd like to thank Kitten for being a retard, thus inspiring others such as Boogeyman and Pepsi to add some great commentary, and most of all, my new fiance Puss in Boots for speaking my mind better than my mouth can.

I'd also like to give special thanks to notcatlick, not because she did anything, but because her name makes me laugh every time.

(Insert Kanye West to say Jeremy's site is much better).

Perseus said...

Oh and thank you Loose Shunter for a most excellent prize.

And I should say Ramon's name too.


Dr. Golf said...

170 comments, that’s up there with the climate change sceptics.

Does this mean Andrew Bolt is going to start divulging stories about his weekends spent chasing tail around boozy inner-city pubs.

Puss In Boots said...

Woohoo! That's probably the only acceptance speech thanks I'll ever get! You're quite welcome, Pers.

I hope Kitten hasn't left us for good because of this. Having someone to disagree with is so much fun.

Loose Shunter said...


It truly was a superb achievement from you to write a topic that both polarised and entertained. It takes a special skill to do that. And to everyone else for pushing a post that could have been another 'what Perseus did on his weekend' into the stuff of legend.

The bit I loved most on the MS Paint artwork was when I did a Google image search for 'mormon', the third or fourth image was the lady with the T-shirt saying "I can't - I'm a Mormon". Gold.

I already did a PSF, what do I do? It has a giant squid in it

squib said...

I'll leave mine for next time. You go ahead, LS

Nice Paintshop work

Anonymous said...

Nice speech, great artwork. Considering the initial thread, Ramon's follow up thread, and now this, it really has been a magnificent week.

Loose Shunter said...


You go first with a PSF. If you've been able to fit a giant squid in -go to the head of the queue.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Yes, yes, giant squib PSF!

Is it about a Kracken?

Loose Shunter said...

Wow - Squib does a PSF on squid.

Does the last week of September forever more on TSFKA become 'Squid Week'?

Note to self - I must create a tag immediately and edit this post.

squib said...

Aye, Ramon, she be a big Kracken (that was my pirate voice)

LS, oh! I'm so excited! My very own week!

squib said...

oh RIGHT, I see, it's squiD week


Loose Shunter said...

But Squib, every week is 'Squib Week'.

squib said...


I was forgetting that

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Nice to see you back and posting, LS.

Loose Shunter said...

Thanks Ramon. It's been a busy time for me. Back at school, getting married, working, trying to renovate a house (and failing) and something that I'm getting ready for... something to do with my... keys...

Luckily, I'm off to NZ for a week.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Getting married, eh?

Any bride's maids you could hook Pers up with?

Loose Shunter said...

Already married Ramon, nearly 6 whole months in fact.

There were no bridesmaids. Money saved on ceremony was spent on a large party at the Abruzzo Club including band.

In terms of eligible females, there were a few, including one who would be perfect for Perseus (smoker, intelligent, good looking), except that she lives in Sydney.

Kettle said...

Holy Jebus farkin' crap.

Is this you fine characters:

It's like I've just spent a very pleasant evening eating salted peanuts and drinking beer at a quiet little establishment, propping up the bar next to a silver-haired gent with a fine voice and an apparent encyclopedic knowledge of Australian politics, then looked up as the bar-keep called last drinks and realised I've been sitting next to Gough Whitlam all night.

Former TSSHers, I salute you.

Perseus said...

Yes Kettle, we are the rubble of what's left of TSSH. Though I (unfortnately) had nothing to do with that scandal. Ramon had his fingers in it but. And maybe Desci.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Good luck with Suicide Girl tonight, Pers.

And if you're going to fuck it up, fuck it up amusingly.

eat my shorts said...

Good god that brings back memories. Those were fun times indeed. I remember Delta-gate like it was yesterday.

I stumbled upon TSSH in my first year of teaching. I'd moved back home with my parents (oy vey) and I found the Idol re-caps one dreary evening. Oh the lulz. I miss the lulz.

OMAC said...

It's been an age since I posted but seeing the St Joe's boys pic has brought me back from hibernation.

That thread as well as the Steve Irwin death thread were some of the best interweb discussion ever seen in this country. Remember the school vice captain coming out to defend his cohort while the others wanted to meet up for a fight? Good times.

What ever happend to the TSSH archieve that was spoken about not long after it was shut down, as well as Caz/The Hack's new site? Did that ever happen?

And finally, Does anyoen still have the old Neighbours recaps. I was looking at the couple that are still on wayback machine and they were just as good as I remembered.
