As a fairly newbie to Chowhound, I often wonder about the originals who have been posting for years and what I have missed all of these years. I have spent hours searching and reading links to postings but it is like looking for a needle in a haystack especially when you don't know what you are looking for.
What is your favorite thread? It can be humorous, inspirational, informative or controversial. I stumbled upon this one while looking at risotto postings and I must admit, I read it often! I actually laugh out loud every time. It inspired a few other threads.
