Check out my "wicker" tag if you want to read up on the history of wicker on BGG

EDIT: I think this GeekList is the origin of the joke: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/11876

It means that you like to put games in wicker baskets. Or vice-versa.

Presumably that clears it up.

Tom, with the catalog of tags you're creating, I think you could be the unoffical historian of BGG. laugh Keep up the good work.

Carol, the wicker basket craze started with a nigh-legendary geeklist by Chad Krizan...

I'm worried that soon there will be too many uses of each tag that they'll no longer be useful. I'm not sure if it would be better to come up with more different tags so that there are fewer uses of each or continue using the same "standard" tags so they continue to be grouped together, suggestions?

It's supposedly a joke but I never found it all that funny. Another reason why people here are called geeks I suppose. They think lists with wicker baskets are hilarious.

...Not all of us get the joke though, so don't worry if you don't.

Most of us aren't cool enough to get wicker baskets, I think. Gotta be so hip you can't see over your own pelvis to really appreciate the full wicker basket phenomenon...or just be too hip for the room *sly grin*

If you don't get it, you SHOULD worry, because it's hilarious... or something.

Unfortunately, I opted to be so cool you could store a side of beef in me for a month.
