I was once reading a thread which discussed something about the classic threads on Audiogon and one of them was to do with refigerator, I was laughing for at least a week after having read that, now it is going to be history repeating itself.

Then there's Dennis the Menace, Slappy, Ecclectique ... and so many more great ones.
