The BOOBIES!! Project originated on the old Calvin & Hobbes feed (calnhobbes) on the approximated date of January 25th 2005. People on the feed were being silly and posting dozens of "first post!" comments, so kuh decided to mix things up a bit and throw in a "BOOBIES!!". I did the same, and continued wth the joke the next day. And then the day after that. And the day after that. It was then that I decided to continue posting it, on a daily basis, for as long as I could. It's a little bit OCD, but there are worse hobbies to have. Anyhow, the whole point behind BOOBIES!! is consistency. I don't post it aiming to get the first post, and it has nothing to do with a lack of maturity and obsession with breasts (or birds). Check out the FAQ on my journal (jassalol) for more info.
So here we are, two and a half years later, and I'm still posting it. I've expanded into multiple feeds (which is just as well considering the death of calnhobbes and dilber3), have endured much abuse from all sorts of idiots, and have apparently "inspired" people. It's been fun, and I see no reason to stop now.
The main aim of this community is to monitor and collect links to interesting BOOBIES!!-related threads started by myself and others.
The rules for 'BOOBIES!!':
1) It's always spelt the same way. BOOBIES!!. No exceptions. 2) No extra text in the comment (this includes the subject line). 3) It must be posted within 24 hours of the feed/community update, on every feed/community update (or the main update, in the case of some feeds). 4) Unless posted as a once-off or during an anniversary celebration, posting must continue each and every update. BOOBIES!! posting can be withdrawn from one feed and started in another to keep the streak alive, but this must be announced beforehand (if possible). 5) All BOOBIES!! posts must me made with a variant of the "Drunken Whore" icon.
The rules for this community:
1) No advertising of unrelated communities. 2) Intelligent discussion from non-members is permitted (and encouraged) on any public entries we choose to make. 3) The organisation of coordinated 'spamming' activities via this community is not encouraged.
* I know of the Fark.comfirst post/boobies filter. I realise that's what kuh was referring to back on the first day, but the meme has mutated significantly since then and has become it's own thing. So shut up about it already :-)
If you're going to cover up your boobies, you may as well do so with Huzzah! tshirts.
