Over a month ago the idea was born. It seemed so simple at first. The crazies in Chit Chat all have giving hearts, so why not have their very own gift exchange. Then the details began to fall into place. It seemed that, unlike the other nonsense that never ends in Chit Chat, this might actually reach the status of reality!

And thanks to the diligent work of our dear Jatoha, Blatantly Obvious Barney was born! But this was no mere flash in the pan, this simple idea has had a ripple effect throughout the entire world of Chit Chat.

Here is a sampling of the ways that B.O.B. has impacted our insane virtual lives...

This is the full list of what all of us have received up to this point. Talk about an amazingly strange and yet entirely awesome gift exchange.

This is the thread where we have been mercilessly taunting one another. It seems B.O.B. has quite the knack for poetry.

Thanks to one of the many awesome gifts my B.O.B. sent me, we've been having a laugh riot with Star Wars Mad Libs. I wouldn't be surprised if phrases like "Your unmentionables can decieve you. Don't trust them." are with us for years to come.

An amazingly inspired gift of a stuffed squirrel with eggs and bacon on his head, has actually given birth to a new Chit Chat microbadge...

= B.O.B. - Egg 'n bacon squirrel

Might as well add the original sign-up thread. I thought maybe I'd get 15 people to sign-up. We had 68!!

Hey Jess, when you really pushed for this, did you have any idea what was coming?


Are you asking if I could have foreseen the squirrel? No. I didn't know what to expect, but, no one expects a squirrel with bacon and eggs on his head.

Actually it has been even more fun and hilarious than I hoped it would.

Although, knowing chit chat, I should have known how fun it would be! I love you guys!! kiss

And just so we weren't totally in the dark on what to get, there was a Blantantly Obvious Hints thread too, where you could leave a list of "Do's" and "Don'ts for your BOB.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...
