Have A Giggle
« on: May 05, 2011, 03:12:26 PM »
I thought it'd be fun to start a thread for funny jokes, images, whatever gives you a giggle. (If there is already something like this here on WC, just shoot me now)

I'll try to keep it clean for the younguns.  ::)

Anyone can contribute! Have fun!

Here used to be a jokes thread, as well as a thread for lame jokes. But it might just be time to start a new one.  :)

Cool! I hadn't come across those.

It doesn't have to be just jokes, I love funny pics and, if they're sized down for the internet, they wouldn't take up too much bandwidth. If they're kept to around 300 pixels, they should be fine. Anything huge, would be overwhelming here at WC.

250K is the automatic size limit here on MWC.  Anything bigger finds itself 'spurned like a rabid dog' and the system simply won't let it be posted.  

The existing thread Joe referred to is the Crap Joke thread,
http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php/topic,8203.0.html,
which over thears since it started eventualltyu became the default home for all jokes.  The good joke thread, and its name, has long since slipped from memory.

So it would be good to have a new one.  Let's support 'Have a giggle'.

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

250k- Wow! That's awfully big! Most sites I belong to will only accept 80kb or less.

Thanks for the support, Gyppo! :D

That's the picture limit.

I've found that most of my photographs, if resized to about 400 x 500 pixels, in 'portrait orientation' come in around 200k, which allows a bit of slack.

This one, just for example, at 600 x 450 pixels,  is a bit bigger and weighs in at 237K.

Does the WC site automatically reduce the size?

Usually, internet images are 72 pixels per inch, so
I try to keep mine at that, then they can be larger like what yours shows when clicked on.

Ok, we got off track-- not seeing any giggles here!

What book/movie does this image portray? :D
