I Want To Be a Stripper!

Post by surfpirate » May 5, 2008 2:34 pm

First ....... the disclaimer:
Image

Now that we have that out of the way ......
"Just who are these characters and critters that inhabit Critterville?".
"Hey Bob! How can I become a stripper?".
"I'm confused, is the pink hog with the man boobies Larry?".


Very good questions, all of 'em, and I don't know the right answer to any of 'em even though I'm writing this strip.

The original critters were all nameless, until you guys gave our valiant little duck friend Image the name "DUCKETT"
(spelled with two T's dambit!), which just seemed to fit. At this point, none of our other characters or critters
have been given an "official name", but I expect that will change over time.
Heck, I'm still trying to figure out all of their individual personalities.
Some of them even seem to have dual-personas Image which is confusing even me. Image
Many of the characters are simply composits of all of us and yet none of us (does that make sense?).
Other characters are beginning to appear and even have certain defined jobs down in Critterville Cove Image
Imagine that! Image
Keep a sharp eye out for the subtle and not-so-subtle references to BNers Image
Many of the current and future characters and critters are inspired by many of you.
I'll leave it to you to figure out who and recognize yourselves.


How can you become a stripper? Image Well, that might work, but don't count on it.
No, the best way to become a stripper is to contribute!
Read and most importantly post, comment, contribute (heck I'll take :D :roll: :lol: 8) :wink: these things) too.
Suggest ideas for future storylines. Tell me when the strip works and when it doesn't.
I'm bound to have a few stinkers,
particular when I write something simply because it amuses me (I'm easily amused).

But the best way of all to get my attention, is to promote the strip, let's drum up both readership
and (most importantly) participation.
Tell the Noobies that they are welcomed ImageImage.

How can you do that best? Maybe add one of these to your signature line:

Custom Stripper Signatures available upon request (helps to have made a contribution or appearance in the strip).

Thanks!

I hadn't noticed Shrinky... COOL! Image :lol: :lol: :lol:

and the new spelling of Noobies... awesome!

I love creativity. Sorry I'm afraid I'm not original enough to be in the strip...

but I love seeing other BNrs!!!

How do I put one of those, for lack of a better word, "bumper stickers" in my sig line?
Take me for what I am, a star newly emerging.
I accept the new found man, and I set the twilight reeling.

Right click it. Go to properties. Copy the address (Ctrl C). Click cancel. Click profile. Go to your siggy. Click Img and paste, or just paste and insert [img]in%20front%20of%20the%20address%20and[/img] after the address. Click submit.

Then look at one of your existing posts (You do NOT have to do a test post to look at it!), and see if you like where it is placed next to your existing siggy pictures. Go back move it around to your heart's content.

SP,

I'd put one in my sigline if it would fit with my other crap... maybe a small, square one that I can just slip in with my other teensy photo-shopped together pictures? I use a 100x100 pixel image for my stuff, and it works.

Just an idea! :)

I don't know where you are hosting your pic Jack, but if you put it in photo bucket, you can edit the picture to any size you want. They also have pre-selected sizes such as avatar.

Thanks to gingerbreadman, I've gone from image-free, to a picture posting fool! 8)

Hmmm, I can't be the only one who thinks a thread about wanting to be a stripper needs a pole.... :lol:

Of course a spork pole would work best with this bunch, right? :P

Hmmm, actually a pair of Blue Footed Boobies might be more appropriate for BN Critters. :P
