I'm calling this 2 as we've done this before but there's a couple of new ones up that I just couldn't resist. For people that weren't here for the last one, it's simply finding two thread titles that kind of contradict each other, or are really ironic. Here's a current example -

Does anyone want to be in a pool with me? lol

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I thought looking for convergence was reserved for trading the financial markets?

          LottoNick56,

          Thanks, good to see a sense of humor.

          Ronnie316,

          Every endeavor has its own jargon. Convergence can be financial markets, mystical such as "harmonic convergence", or on discussion boards, pairs of ironic thread titles.

            Good news. I hope it helps us win a big JP.     Sad Cheers

              Coin,

              I like this idea for a thread, and your example was funny.

              This one is kind of lame compared to that, but it's from consecutive threads with unusual titles:

              "Why did the drunk go to the strip club with $700K?"

              followed by

              "What it is folks?"

              I always thought the first one sounded like the beginning of a joke - a drunk walks into a strip club with $700K and a pig...

              My guess is that the punch line would be, "Excuse ME, but I was talking to the pig."

              And the other one is funny because it's not the expected "What is it folks" but instead it's "What it is folks" which almost sounds like it could be a Beck song.  I got two quick picks and a microphone?

              So one after the other they're at least slightly amusing.

                There's a new thread title that goes well with almost any other one:

                "Why did the drunk go to the strip club with $700K in cash"

                "How can I be such a loser!!"

                Or

                "California Lottery Winner Arrested"

                "How can I be such a loser!!"

                    Here's another with How can I be such a loser?
