Some great ideas and poetry/lyrics coming in...
I like the thought about a quote by Einstein... Thank you to Nomad1272 for that suggestion. Interesting... Hmmm...
Here's a few observations if you-all will bear with me...
Early in the thread Crakeur started talking about how he was now the "donkey" and SO had approved... I find that interesting, especially as later he
said "and who is the donkey?" And then in another post he'd say "I'm the donkey" again. And he also went into some detail about Ghost Busters,
the keymaster (played by Moranis) and the marshmallow man.
Now, maybe this stuff about the "donkey" is just light amusement but I doubt it. That would be moving too far off the subject of the thread and mods
like Crakeur, I feel, would not do what they encourage us not to do. So there's something to it.
Here’s some quote from his posts. (To read all of anyone’s posts on a thread, just find one post and click on “thread” at the bottom and they
all get shown. Please note that all post dates are shown in dd/mm format.)
26/9 “and a donkey”
3/10 “the Donkey is in NYC”
3/10 “although it should be noted that the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man did make an appearance in NYC in that movie so maybe it is all connected.”
3/10 “the keymaster (Rick Moranis) says it. That's why I tossed it there, along with the picture of the keymaster.”
3/10 “and who is the donkey?”
5/10 (Originally posted by Redge777...) “So the donkey is ignorance, and things with less understanding then others...Sigh… Or it is a reference
to the Greek God of wine, and is merely a mentioning of the libation to be had at the celebration.”
the donkey is none of those things.
the donkey is ..…” (End of post)
5/10 (Long post -- you can read it all on Crakeur’s thread contributions if you wish...)
“I am the beancounter, they are the amigos.
I am the Donkey, Hee Haw Hee Haw.”
8/10 “ I think Dave Rabbit said it best when he said ignore the clues coming from non-amigos .”
(Then later in the same post...) “For the record, Dave's comment about whom to follow is partially correct. Red Herrings abound but some of the
non-amigo posts have some merit.
I'll give you a hint.
told you about the donkey and Springer-man,
You know that we're as close as can be-man.
Well here's another clue for you all,
The Donkey is(not) Skeptic Overlawd..”
9/10 “The only significance I know of for March 12 is a certain donkey was born on that day, many, many moons ago.”
9/10 (Another post) “the only party on 03/12/08 would be a celebration of either my 39th, my wife's 40th or a combination of the two
Later in the same post: “The birthday is mine. I am the donkey.”

I sure wish I knew the answer...
(Crakeur...) “that's the best part of this. Only SO knows the answer.”
(End of the quote stuff.) Okay only SO knows, but that doesn’t mean certain super mods and other mods are not being given clues to pass on to
Also, thinking about the “Donkey” and him going on about the “keymaster”, it occurs to me that “Don” can be taken to mean “Lord” or
“Master”. (Like Don Corleone, Don Quixote, etc.) So, “Donkey” could mean “Master of the key.”
Any takers? There are other places in Crakeur's posts where he tells us that what he's saying/said or what someone else said could be useful. (I'm
paraphrasing.) Think it's worth studying his statements more closely?
Also…There is something very odd about that “fist of the revolution” image that SO posted. Has anyone else noticed it? It's not the image
itself, but what some of the image actually conceals and how
it conceals it.
