    Hi all,

    Just a small thread to showcase some truly outstanding threads I've read here over the past year. These threads usually begin as something innocent or innocuous and suddenly make a sharp turn towards the strange and bizarre. These links are not meant to harrass, disparage, or insult anyone -- they're just for fun. If you know of any others, please feel free to contribute. Happy reading!

    A woman's excitement about her new game turns into a misunderstanding about her screen name (the Pinslut thread):
    http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/just-ordered-avengers-le

    A member starts a price check on his autographed game which quickly escalates into a soap opera of epic proportions (the Star Wars kid thread):
    http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/signed-de-star-wars-estimated-value

    A trip to buy some pins from a rough neighborhoods turns ugly (Bottom Boyz):
    http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-best-ad-i-have-ever-seen

    A link to an eBay auction becomes an entaglement of trickery:
    http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/found-a-nice-tmnt-on-ebay

    The guy behind him won't stfu:

    uggg I can't find a link to the infamous 'Bottom Boys' thread

    I hope this doesn't make any of you dizzy.

    The 'Best Ad' thread is the Bottom Boyz thread

    ^ Nice one. Link added

    Nothing better than 'Chicks In Thongs Playing Pinball':

    This one has actually turned into my favorite. I sure wish that guy posting it was real. Too funny.

    #10 5 years ago

    I live in Shreveport and never knew about that thread. Holy Crap!

    #11 5 years ago

    Easily the top 2 of all time are:

    1. The Bottom Boyz ones

    2. Anything to do with pinballwizardz and his DESW/TMNT/and any future games he may or may not sell.
    I'd like to toot my horn here and point out that I originally discovered that he was hyping his own TMNT on the ebay thread.

    Heh, I noticed earlier, but I contacted him via PM that it was obvious what he was doing and that he should probably get out in front of it and be upfront. Then you had to ruin it all!

    What do golf, narcissism, X-Men, and boats have in common? This thread:

    Yet another overpriced 'For Sale' thread is overshadowed by the discovery of a double identity:

    Pinball 3000 is easily my favorite. It needs the videos, though.

    #22 5 years ago

    Thanks Mudflaps for helping keep track of all of these great Pinside Forum topics/threads.
    May you be blessed with many free credits and a beer or two.

    #23 5 years ago

    There has been some great threads on Pinside over the last few years. The Bottom Boyz, the autographed Star Wars pin, Carl and his infamous pinball lessons. My all-time favorite isnt a thread but a Pinsider from the past. RIP sweet sweet Wizman Gone but not forgotten.

    #24 5 years ago

    Don't forget that epic Thunderbirds one.

    #25 5 years ago

    Wow.. I can't believe the signed Star Wars Pin thread went for 18 pages!

    #26 5 years ago

    nice memories.

    the best one's gotta be the signed star wars, 18 pages and still open, maybe one day, maybe... he'll be back. the force is strong with this one!

    #27 5 years ago

    The "post only stuff that interests me" thread had golden opportunities for great longevity and was needlessly shut down early.

    That is my Fav thread of the whole bunch you listed, well done Muddy!

    Latest development, evidently pinball documentaries and hardcore rap music go together like butter and toast!

    Heck, two more sequel threads since then. Here was my two weeks with the apron, darn shame I couldn't get those pictures to face the right direction: http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/ft-amazing-unique-tron-apron-one-of-a-kind

    Anyone have a link to the last apron thread when the apron became self aware and started listing itself for sale on Craigslist while going on a vacation across the country?

    I just got done properly rotating all your pictures on the first page. It was a pain in the ass, and I gave up once I realized how many more there still were to do.

    Haha! I think the mayor of Westlake with the crooked teeth liked that his pictures were also crooked. LMAO, that was a really fun day with the Apron of Destiny!

    Man, I haven't gotten anything done today. This thread is awesome!

    I thought sticky'd meant it stays blue and stays at the top of the forum threads, just looks starred to me.

    #37 5 years ago

    Who could ever forget the greatest party thread of all time when blondetall was named a Pinside moderator? That was an awesome party thread (and a great place to go to download some kick butt gifs and memes): http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/blondetalls-moderator-party-thread

    I only have the authority to sticky to sub forums and not on the main page. Go to the Pinside Website sub forum and you will see it up top.

    #42 5 years ago

    Has anyone mentioned the price check on the IM classic that went horribly wrong?

    While the Hitler one is great is still does not compare to the Bottom boyz (although that was not in 2013) and the autographed DESW machine/anything else pinballwizardz touch. The entire threads were gold not just the initial post like Hitler is.

    I think a poll is in order.

    Some great posts Zippy, especially for utilizing WOZ theme.

    I guess I'll send Mudflaps a PM to include this F/S thread in his "Best of Pinside" thread.

    Surprised no one has mentioned the NFL thread here.

    The Choggard/hugsc fiasco needs to be on here. It has everything; lies, drama, deception, humor, even a public banning/mysterious redemption. Good stuff.

    He made a new FS thread too. I am sorry but when you have non stop FS threads, constant bumps, at crazy prices, you're going to get some heat. Throw in a fake acct to confirm your price is what made this epic.

    Hysterical. Nothing is more bizarre than watching ordinary people create fake people to talk about the real person and then trying to convince other real people that the fake person is real.

    BTW, many thanks to Pinball-is-great for the pm's. It definitely helps keep me up to speed while on my 'vacation.'

    I tried to buy lessons from that guy, but he wouldn't teach "miners or unaccompanied women" and I work in the mining industry, so...
