It was one year ago today, that a legend began. A gentleman from Lexington, Kentucky; introduced us to a new word that had meaning beyond immaculate. He has sold ice to Eskimos and legless pinball machines to the general public. He had copyrights that he claimed to exist, and was going to sue your ass if you didn't believe him. Then... he got soft on us and became a cool dude.

Happy Anniversary wantdataeast! Here's to giving us at Pinside 90 days of incredible banter, laughs, and endless GIFs/memes.

I thought the same thing too.

It's definitely going to be a reread for me. The GIFs and memes are some of the best I've seen.

All of the above

Now only if we could get an official comment from wantdataeast or an ingenious new GIF from thehuemanatee ...

#9 47 days ago

"Georgeous" is the "imamaculate" of 2019!!!

#10 47 days ago

This is ancient history. I'm happy to eagerly await the glory of the future Pinball Buzz thread that is about to launch.

#11 47 days ago

The fact that wantdataeast took all of our ribbing and then turned the corner to have fun along with the rest of us AND prove that he really is a great guy - for me that was not only the best part of the thread, but one of the best things about Pinside at the time.

It WAS a highly entertaining thread! Thanks thehuemanatee !

#12 47 days ago

That's a great poll OP - well done covering so many of the reasons to love the thread. Only problem I want to pick more than 1 (went with the GIFs)!!! Man I remember loving this thread at work and I was on vacation in Vegas and was still glued to the thread in between throwing dice!

#13 47 days ago

Holy cow who knew it was possible for a 1 year old thread to still bring us all this continued humor!

#14 47 days ago

Hard to believe our baby is 1 already. God how time flies. Look how long her legs are now. Cherish every moment because before you know it they have left the nest.

Thanks @hockeymag8

I did allow multiple choices for the poll since it's hard to pick just one. Feel free to update your selection(s).

Didn't the original thread end up raising money for a charitable cause? IIRC the personalized postcard/print/special soil were sent after a donation was made. What was the charity, a Childrens Hospital or something like that?

It was the second thread - "I sure do miss the 600 play Baywatch thread."

Just got back and saw this thread. LOL

I voted for the OP turning out to be a great guy with an awesome sense of humour. That was my favorite part of the whole imamaculate baywatch thread(s).

Happy Anniversary!!

He’s back! He’s back! Now head over to the jury duty thread and work your magic!

#24 46 days ago

So good!

#25 46 days ago

I lost it when the machine was in Super Mario land, and the "bad mushroom" showed up, and the legs on the machine disappeared.

Absolutely loved that one.

#26 45 days ago

I had to vote for the GIF's that thehuemanatee and coz and many others posted...although it was a tough decision.
During that thread's hey day, my coworkers were prolly wondering what I was laughing at...…

The thread did a 180, with money raised for charity, postcards, dirt, lawsuit threats and pics being traded.....and eventually everything worked out in the end.....

I really do miss that thread.....always good for a laugh while im having a crappy day at work….

Well played gents, well played.

#27 45 days ago

While I appreciate the shout out, I would like to reiterate that this was a group effort & that there were many pinsiders who made hilarious contributions.(swillie, wantdataeast, coz, cosmokramer, atari_daze, afm95 just to name a few)

No thread will ever come close to replicating the hilarity of the imamaculate baywatch thread(s).

Thanks for all the laughs folks!!

#28 45 days ago

I spoke to wantdataeast a few months ago. As of February 1st, the imamaculate Baywatch was still in his possession.
