Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the thread! This event is to celebrate the first year of GRcade - the people, the threads, the memories that make GRcade such an amazing place to be!
Please, sit back, get comfortable, enjoy the free booze*, and enjoy! We have a truly mind-blowing and star-studded Awards Ceremony for you today that will be updated periodically throughout the day. The first award, The Award For Most Memorable Quotation, will be presented, uh, presently.
*Booze is free under the agreement that you donate £100.00 or more to the JK Fund For Impoverished JK. Otherwise booze is completely off limits to the tight-arsed.
Nominees: MCN's "heart of the community"; Garth's "no mass wank thread"; Eighthours' "ban the living gooseberry fool"
Over the year, there have been hundreds of amusing bon mots, non sequiturs and other French things, but only three were inspirational enough to be nominated for our first award today. The winner of this award will no doubt go down in forum history - perhaps the Admin might seem fit to immortalise this quotation forever by putting it under our fabled GRcade logo, where it belongs.
Each of these nominees, in some way, sums up the GRcade experience: our community spirit is very important to us, as MCN so eloquently put it; our propensity for creating outrageous and/or disgusting threads of epic proportion is encapsulated in but a few words from Garth; and our love of winding up the mods is expressed by Eighthours himself.
Only one can win, however. The quotation, chosen by you, as the Most Memorable Quotation on GRcade so far goes to...
Eighthours' "I'm going to ban the living gooseberry fool out of you."
Congratulations Eighthours! Wear your sig with pride!
Our next award is a double-header: Best and Worst Meme
You should say who comes second and third. Maybe after doing the whole ceremony, like the winners going to the after party and everyone else scrambling around a sheet of paper to see if they came close.

Hold your horses, Mr Cuttooth!
After every four awards, there will be a brief intermission in which I will post some exciting pie charts to indicate who came in which position and how close it was.
Ladies and gentleman, we have a slight technical difficulty - I can’t find the guy who’s scheduled to present this next award. He must have thought it was a bloody skive-thru.
I was talking to him just a few moments ago. Hmmmm.
We were in the green-room, and he was showing me his collection of “special interest” pornography (let’s just say that "Alvin would" and leave it at that). He said that he was running out of space on his laptop to fit on all his fatties, so naturally I recommended an external HDD. He must have buggered off to get one. Oh well, as the old saying goes; “what goes on toast, stays on toast”.
Thinking about it, I’ve never known what that means.
I suppose I’ll just have to present the award myself. Now, I’ll just have to find my notes, they’re somwhere around here...
Tum tee tum... pom pom... play up Portsmouth Pirates... something something, Burt Ward... pom...
Hmmm, they must be through this door. I’ll just open it by turning the handle in a clockwise fashion, then pushing forward slightly to allow enough room for me to walk thr-
That's right, shock.gif has been voted by you to be the Best Meme!
Of course, for every Ying there is the unfortunate business of the corresponding Yang...
I have nothing but hatred for the winner of this award. It sickens me, and the least amount of time I can spend sullying this illustrious occasion with such gutter trash the better. My only words for the winner of this award is that you should do the decent thing and crawl back into the faeces-ridden cess pit that you no doubt came from.
Now get out of my sight before I do something I’ll regret.
I don't mean to be big headed or whatever, but I think, maybe, possibly (there is a chance) that I brought Shock.gif to this place. I used to post it when this place first opened in disgusting topics, to obviously express shock. Don't recall seeing it before.
Nominees: Adam231's soggy Pringle incident; DML on Going For Gold; Eighthours in general; HSH28's post history; Igor's relationships; MCN's post history
Who thought that such a simple collection of pixels could have such an impact on our burgeoning community? Jean Luc Picard, Bill Kim et al. may have started the fad, but our humble emoticon allows us to express our anguish, our incredulity, our sheer anger at some of the ignorance, unintentional retardedness and general fuck-wittery of the community with just a single click.
There have been many, many examples of facepalm-inducing moments on GRcade, so the six nominees here are truly worthy of everybody's favourite emoticon. However, only one can ultimately be crowned the most facepalm-inducing of them all. Your Biggest Facepalm is...
MCN's post history
Congratulations (or is that commiserations?) to MCN!
