dope fish

Post by Scarlet »

So the dope fish is the second dumbest creature in the universe. Which makes me wonder... what is the first dumbest?

Any suggestions/ideas?

Perhaps it comes from the same world as the Biggest Sandwich Keen Ever Saw.

Suppose that it wasn't the second dumbest, or that it isn't a Guide reference?

Also, Dopefish is one word.

The answer: The ravenous Post Scarlet of PCKF-4!


It is a little known fact among those who know little of it, that the most sure way of annoying an Admin is to feed his great aunt to the ravenous Post Scarlet of PCKF-4. Few have managed to do so however because of an interesting phenomenon known as the Davis Effect.

'Everything I do on the internet is important' reasons Davis, 'Ergo, nothing outside of the internet is important. Ergo, it doesn't exist.' This means that those who are online long enough tend to become completely blind to anything lacking an online presence. Since the great aunts of most admins do not have facebook, myspace, pintrest or other accounts, they cannot be found to be fed to the aforementioned beast.
What you really need, not what you think you ought to want.

:dopefish I never knew what the Dopefish description was referencing. I thought they just used "second dumbest" simply to give people something to think about..."What's the first dumbest, then?"

Before I knew about the existence of the Hitchhiker's Guide, I thought the 'second dumbest' thing was a reference to the TV show Get Smart, where the main character, Max, often uses a 'that's the second biggest [whatever]...' catch phrase.

Keen actually refers to the giant sandwich in Keen 6 as the second biggest sandwich he's ever seen too, doesn't he? Is that a reference to the Dopefish's Hitchhikers' reference?

I suspect the "second biggest sandwich" runs more in the vein of the Get Smart gag, causing one to wonder just where in the heck Keen could ever possibly have seen a bigger sandwich. Somewhat like this topic, I suppose.
