But you have to tell us the squirrel is saying and who the pincone man is


The song is Taivas lyö tulta originally by the Finnish band Teraesbetoni
The video I linked, Pikku Orava (Finnish for Little Squirrel) is a singing squirrel, popular in Finland. They do speed up popular Finnish songs, to give the singer a squeaky voice similar to what Ross Bagdasarian did to create The Chipmunks.

Here are the lyrics:


Katseet ylös luokaa, veljet aika tullut on!
Meidän edessämme vahvinkin on voimaton
Aika pysähtyy ja siirtyy vuoret paikoiltaan
Me emme järky vaikka satais tulta päälle maan

Heikoille voi olla liikaa kutsu metallin
Muttei niille, joita ohjaa vaisto soturin

Taivas lyö tulta yläpuolellamme,
Kaikuu kallioilla ääni totuuden
Verivalan taika on aina suojanamme,
Tuo merkki metallisen veljeyden

Missä liikummekin, aina meidät huomataan
Kunnia ja voima saavat meihin uskomaan
Tulivana seuraa joukkoamme mahtavaa
On luonto puolellamme tukemassa sanomaa

Heikoille voi olla liikaa kutsu metallin
Muttei niille, joita ohjaa vaisto soturin

Taivas lyö tulta yläpuolellamme,
Kaikuu kallioilla ääni totuuden
Verivalan taika on aina suojanamme,
Tuo merkki metallisen veljeyden


Not much luck in finding an English version of the lyrics, and the web translating sites don't seem to be able to translate all the words (metal music using non-standard words in the lyrics? no way!) the best they could come up with was:

Eyes upward classless , brethren period became is!
Ours ahead vahvinkin is powerless
Period stopping and migrating face paikoiltaan
We emme järky although hundred tulta upon vernacular
Heikoille butter be superfluous invitation metal
Nut niille joita pilot instinct warrior
Sky lyö tulta overhead ,
Echo rocky suffrage totuuden
Verivalan witchcraft is ever suojanamme ,
Yonder symbol metal brotherhood
Where liikummekin , ever ours note
Kudos and efficacy having meihin unbelievable
Tulivana society joukkoamme potent
Is habit puolellamme tukemassa tidings
Heikoille butter be superfluous invitation metal
Nut niille joita pilot instinct warrior
Sky lyö tulta overhead ,
Echo rocky suffrage totuuden
Verivalan witchcraft is ever suojanamme ,
Yonder symbol metal brotherhood

I guess that means I fail your test. Crying or Very sad

Hey Zen, just because they have a screen name like 'britneysshavedc**t' don't automatically make them a porn spammer. Razz

I profiled them, the websites were porn-
but the totally righteous Ken has already gotten rid of them!

*crosses fingers*

Maybe the new system will work as it is-
without having to entertain the possibility of charging a fee...

So, Zen..your idea is : "No porn spam! Any titilation they get will come from me!"

Afraid I don't have any pics of those-
never met a guy whose pecs were bigger than mine-
but I do have a few pics of other parts that might amuse you...

But I'm still not putting them in here...

the latest antii-spam technique I've seen used successfully is to require a new user to answer an additional question upon registration, such as "is ice hot or cold?" This defeats most spam bots. Same technique for posting messages - an additional question like that befoe being able to hit "submit". Then you switch up the question every week or so.

How about a CHRIS MOORE quiz as a requirement for registration- just a thought...

Also wanted to mention that I saw some probable porn spammers had joined in the past couple of days...


Like, "which of the following books did Christopher Moore write:"


    Island of the Sequined Love Nun
    The Kite Runner
    The Bible
    Cannery Row

Just an FYI: for last night, the following names were registered:

PetrRon
Encebas48
Scorpion
zorkzeno
TarenaManovska
Meeggiessspooo
Amoixftc
groovinaxzesz
Smecsi
MaggieRichfield
Erjo1
Loveme
JonnyBartopis

How many do you think were actually spammers? (I deleted instead of activating)...

Here's the outcome:

PetrRon - SPAMMER (website pointed to sale of russian cell phones)
Encebas48 - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)
Scorpion - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)
zorkzeno - possible real
TarenaManovska - SPAMMER (really disgusting spam site in sig)
Meeggiessspooo - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain, spam sig)
Amoixftc - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain, spam sig)
groovinaxzesz - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)
Smecsi - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)
Adanbas5 - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)
MaggieRichfield - SPAMMER (Looked real, but spam site in sig)
Erjo1 - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain, other markers too)
Loveme - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain, other markers too)
JonnyBartopis - SPAMMER (Blacklisted email domain)

That's one out of 15 was even a possible real person. I think I'm going to continue checking before approval. Pretty amazing.

Holey Underwear!
If only there were some way of "converting" them.
Then they could spread the word of MOORE!

Right, because they've been so effective at getting us to buy viagra, russian cell phones, and porn . . . unless, FC, have you been up late with your credit card again? Very Happy

Shouldn't there be exceptions? Spam that somehow manages to separate it's self from the norm?
