If someone makes one, and it's animated spinning football with fire coming off it, then yes.

Nah, we need the font to be changed, a scrolling marquee and all need our profile pics to be augmented in some way before we can reach the heights of the Christmas thread! :lol:

"Crack on"? Ugh. I mean it's practically a crime! :fp:

Is it bad to say that, then? I sometimes say it :shifty: .


Not really, there may be a smidgen of hyperbole in my comments! [emoji14]

It's the idea of being reduced to someone just spouting idioms and soundbytes that I don't like. I used to actually say things with value! :cry:

Managers in my work have started calling things their 'baby' like when they start a new project etc and they're all like omg this is my baby now so I must make it good. Such a gooseberry fool saying

Yeah that's some pretty high grade management nonsense right there! :lol:

I'm sure there are people I've worked with who spend approximately 90% of there time just talking gooseberry fool like this in meetings and never actually contribute anything tangible!

The worst thing is unfortunately the GIF running correctly at full speed in Firefox.

It's a long story.

Basically these old horrible GIF animations where created in the 90s/early 00s mostly when Internet Explorer would only render them at half speed so GIF creators would double the framerate to compensate. When Firefox and Chrome came along and started playing them at the correct speed for which they probably weren't designed or tested, they're really fast and even more of a visual assault.

One of many side effects of the world's shittest web browser being the most popular.
