Presentation is important when it comes to sharing people's embarrassing moments with the public. After all, these memories define these posters' identities, so much so that many chose screen names that permanently connect them with the incidents, like "forebodingburger" describing a burger topped with "pissturd," or "Dick Danger" dropping a used condom on the Border's counter, or "Woohoo" unable to contain a loud outburst. Anyway, for the sake of cohesion, I made a series of categories: "piss," "turds," "pissturd," "vomit," "sex" and "fart." Underneath those labels, I wrote the names of the relevant SA Forums Goons. So someone could find lists of weird abstract phrases under those dubious headings and wonder what the fuck, except I already shredded the paper and burned the scraps, like I do with everything associated with this job. But this Goldmine will live forever!
