Some good ones have come out of the race-day live threads. I don't know who wrote this back during the Menchov crash-fest in TdF '09, but I remember Menchov crashing over a painted mark in the road on a rainy day, and somebody here responding
What the hell Menchov? Don't they have white lines where you train?

I wish we could access Jeff Vader's stuff, his stuff on "Mike Ferrari" was classic.

Floyd's suggestion for his book title last year
Wonder Lance is great, but Jeff Vader will remain my favorite poster of all time. His work on slowtwitch and the old Lance Armstrong forum (was it tailwind's? I can't remember now, but it was the one they shut down right after some of us went there to play.) is legindary. His ability to hook people was amazing. WL isn't fooling anyone. Jeff Vader hooked so many people, he should be given a new bass boat.

I still chuckle every time I think about the discussion we had on slowtwitch regarding the usage of ferns in your work-out space.

Very funny & a lot of people played along. Where else did Jeff Vader post?
Here is one of his brief exchanges.
http://forum.slowtwitch.com/cgi-bin/gforum.cgi?post=1893286;search_string=jeff vader;guest=130423948&t=search_engine#1893286
He posted at cyclingforums, and a Lance Armstrong that was shut down, but I cannot remember the name of that one. He has posted here, but not under that name, and not very often...though I wouldn't be at all surprised if he were Wonderlance.
 
my favorite was from The Hog. I'm going off memory, it was a sort of wacky comical line that went something like this.
"I think I'd believe ----- more if he had his own jet. The fact he has no Jet means he's lying. Men with jets tells the truth."

Not a poster line, but one I heard from one of my kid's christmas movies:

"You sit on a throne of lies! You're a fake!"
-Buddy the Elf

Might be off-topic, but it's certainly seasonaly-specific.

Merry Christmas, ye of the lone b*ll! Enjoy the New Year...

WonderLance = God.

Especially the one about Stallone's grandma, "Andrew giving his bike a service" and "Lance finished 3rd. Where did you finish?"

I didn't even notice the one nut in his avatar until someone pointed it out in this thread

Another great one is:

remember seeing another response to a "there's no I in team" comment. Can't remember who it was, but their comment was:

"yes there is, it's hidden in the T - you just need to look harder"

Gold!

Paceline? I remember a thread about "Is TheArbiter a better troll than Vader from Paceline".

It was more of a great paragraph than a great line, but Doc M's send-up of Jan Ullrich written in the style of the LAFanboy was priceless. Spring 2010 maybe. Now where do I find that?

Yep. Thats when i realised he wasnt for real.

But how did i forget this. One of his greats:

Hey ladies.

Still noone can answer my question ha?

Too bussy trying to send me friend requests?

You regect greatness I regect you.

WonderLance said:
Draging this thread out again? Still cant get over that Lance is out there curing cancer and not wading through Spanish abattoirs like your favourite rides?

Thats just sad. frowny face


But the piece de resistance, has to be this entire exchange between Wonder Lance, and Mont Ventoux - ACF.

WonderLance said:
Lance is the team, he can do what he likes.
Mont Ventoux said:
Exactly, select who'll look after his bar fridge in the closet,
who'll stand guard outside the hotel room door,
who'll benefit from the semi-annual Trek bike raffle.

With an ego as big as his, there's no friggin' way he can ride in anything smaller than a team bus!!!

Keep dreaming the nightmare fan-boy!
WonderLance said:
Lance finished third in the tour last year, where did you finnish?
auscyclefan94 said:
He was too busy hating others!
WonderLance said:
Lance was not hating on anyone, he was racing in the fight against cancer.
auscyclefan94 said:
I was not reffering to Lance!
WonderLance said:
This is the Lance Armstrong thread. If you're not refffering to lance I sugest you go elsewhere.
auscyclefan94 said:
I was reffering to the haters of LAnce. You were saying where did Mont Ventoux finish, I said he was too busy hating to finish!
WonderLance said:
You seem to be talking about non-lance related subjects still, are you having trouble following the thread? Please stick to the subject matter.
Mont Ventoux said:
Sadly my Finnish isn't as good as it should be.
I mean, I own a Nokia cell phone, and I really dig Scandinavian girls, but my Finnish isn't what it should be...

.


WonderLance said:
I like nokia too but those girls dont really look enough like my mother.

My favorite Wonderlance post:

WonderLance said:
I appreciate the affectations and I apologise that i have not had time to post during the tour. As you understand this is a hard time for me hanging out by the bus hoping to catch a drop of sweat or other fluid on my face, not to mention maintaining several CN forum user names.

However you should really focus on the guy who is doing all the good things. LANCE. Not only has he been good enough to attend da tour this year to boost ratings and attract more money but he has been menotring young riders on how to be grat champions like him. He has given away gift after gift this year and ollowed others to have their time in the spot light.

He is truely a great champion, Im sure I we can agree on that.

My favorite Wonderlance post:
Let me add, Lance sacrificied his dominance to Frank in suisse and al in francia with Al as a gesture to all young cyclysts everywhere, to have won 8 would have been to much for the record books.

There is only one quote I care about
Through my illness I learned rejection. I was written off. That was the moment I thought, Okay, game on. No prisoners. Olsen's going down.
But since it is a festive time of year when we all gather around to celebrate our true lord and saviour of cycling, Lance, I will be chartable. This posts proves what haters can achieve when they let a bit of hope into their hearts.

Cheers Krebs

Mr. trouble never hangs around,
when he hears this Wonder sound,

Here I come to save the day!
That means that Wonderlance is on the way!

Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right,
Wonderlance will join the fight!

On the sea or on the land,
He's got the situation well in hand!

We know that when there's danger, we'll never despair;
Because we know that when there's danger he is there...
On the land on the sea in the air.

We're not worrying at all
We just listen for his call
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Wonderlance is on the way.

When there is a wrong to right,
Wonderlance will joint the fight
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Wonderlance is on the way!

A response from the above poster to the upcoming edition of Sports Illustrated should be very interesting.

"In space, no one can hear you scream..."

One of my favorite quotes comes to mind:
"Keep laughing, Wonder boy."
