1. There's already a thread on this in Happy Hour:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=491250
How many do we need?
2. This isn't a thread about a show. What's it doing here anyway?
3. Apparently the injury wasn't serious
4. Why put "AFF" in the title? Is everyone supposed to instantly know who you're talking about? It's not even the abbreviation for a show, which people might get even if they don't watch the show (like HIMYM)---instead, it's an abbreviation for a character on a show. You're forcing everyone to open the thread to understand what the thread's about...

I first though Alf was in an accident and I though that's sad right before his movie comes out.

More that your thread title is confusing and thus frustrating. Almost everyone will have no idea wth you're talking about.

It also appears to be in the wrong forum further confusing things.

And #4 is the biggest issue. People will look in here because "almost loses thumb" is scary and since we have no idea what AFF stands for think that perhaps someone we know (through this forum perhaps) might have been seriously injured versus someone who (even after reading the thread) is entirely meaningless to us wasn't seriously injured.

I wasted precious minutes of procrastinating work by reading this alarming thread about nothing. AFF = Mayim Bayalik = Blossom. BBT = ?? Ugh! Not everybody understands your very own coded world, Bierboy. At least translate your thoughts into English before posting.
Sieg heil!

Same here - then I had to think... does he have any fingers? or - just a mitten like - hand? couldn't remember if he had fingers, or not - and if he was missing a thumb- this is HUGE!

Oh I thought it was Big Beautiful Transvestite. That clears that up at least.

I would have just said Blossom instead of AFF, even though she is more recently on BBT.

I immediately knew who you meant --thanks for the link. And since I never go to Happy Hour, I wouldn't have seen it there.

As much as the thread title is just plain wrong. This thread is much more interesting than it would be with the correct title or if the OP had simply posted in the already existing thread. So I withdraw my complaint.

When I saw the thread title I thought, "Someone else had an accident and almost lost a digit? Some rapper, maybe?"

Glad I opened it, though. So funny.
