If anyone has not seen Field of Dreams, you should. It's kind of a classic. So not Children of the Corn, but I wonder if you're just pulling my leg, like with the Kaiser roll...

Seriously, I have no idea what a Kaiser roll is, and I refuse to google it to find out.

Does it have anything to do with a blonde German girl, an empty paddock and a sunny day?

Actually it's all just a flimsy defense of the awe I regard you super-uber-posters with....

Yeah, now I understand u.
The competition to be the most frequent poster is too high, so u have decided to be the most infrequent poster instead.
Or the poster who complains the most?;)


Those 2 cathegories should be added to the TP stats.

Cool Gretchen! Didn't like to repeat myself - waste of a post, y'know ;)

I didn't think you would mind (too much) if I borrowed it as it was oh so apropos. I'm sure we'll find replacements for it as time goes on... And, I agree - no sense wasting posts un-necessarily with repeats.

Yes. ;)
Actually, It's a hard roll, similar in shape to a hamburger bun but crustier. It was created in Vienna and named for Emporor Franz Josef. It's also known as a Vienna roll.

All those vacancies have been filled. Guess Helen will just have to wait for an opening.

I also usually think of it as either having sesame seeds or poppyseeds on top - though this may not be technically correct. It is great for breakfast sandwiches because the outercrust helps to insulate and make the cheese more melty, but then the steam breaks the bun crustiness down little bit and makes it easier to eat

So I thought I'd do a little summing up: I have Mikey believing the Off Topic crown is his (I wonder how Isa feels about this), Hien trying to evade me completely, Lagered trying to compete with my # of posts, and I'm probably also in the running for Tway's loosest grasp of the written language what with all my commas and just being younger in general (Deep breath in)

Technically, you are correct with the poppy (almost typed poopy) or sesame seeds in the top. More often it will be poppy seeds. Kaiser rolls can be a challenge to eat sometimes (especially for us old folks) as the bread contains more glutens and thus are chewier and crustier. I much prefer a Kaiser roll for hamburgers (when I have my dentures securely in place) because I like my burger very rare. The Kaiser roll doesn't fall apart the way a regular bun does with juicy burgers. (Aren't you glad you asked, James??)

1) Mikey can have the crown. He earned it with the coding glitch that kept him a Budding Member past 3000 posts. He was quite tolerant most of the time.
2) Tyler is just having way too much fun for his own good and he should not be allowed to post at the end of the work day. Oh wait - that may not be a bad thing after all...
3) Nope - when it comes to the loosest grasp, you haven't even left the gate yet! ;)

I believe the expression is "passed on".

Hmmmmm . . . it would have been hard to write this if I was dead. Isa, if you're willing to give up a fight for the crown, then I'll let it go, but I still think you deserve it! So, with Mikey crowned the Off Topic King what does that mean? It's hard to believe that he let himself get to 3000 posts without some complaining, but maybe he wasn't quick enough to catch it. I think I spotted Hien somewhere else earlier, but he hasn't took the bait and come out it the open. I'll have to be stealthy
