Cascade thread / pyramid quotes.

It very simple. Follow my example!

Thank you Michael for the idea.

Or limes that climb four by four?

What happens when we run out of words that rhyme with "more"?

^^ EVERYONE DIES

Anyways, just a thought about this: the reason Michael said "somewhere else" is that the forum will only allow 3 cascades per quote box, so I'm afraid it won't really work here.

I could change that, but I'd rather not as we have a size limit to our database - and whilst it's unlikely to ever a problem, I'd rather not fill it up with too much stuff that doesn't need to be there. Come on guys, I'm thinking of the future here.

But I like the idea of the thread, can we do it without the quotes?

I timed that mime who's by the door.

I tried to rhyme but couldn't any more.

Even without the quote pyramids, this is far from a bore.

I could take that as a way out, but let's be hardcore.

But it's fun when someone completely ignores the rhyme.

Perhaps on occasion, but not all the time.

A change of scheme, and in y'all chime :)
