Back on December 5th I made the offer posted below and the deadline has arrived. It looks like the one ounce silver round I promised is still going for $70+ on eBay! If admin can let me know how many shit throwing monkeys ponied up a few pennies I can get to fulfilling my offer.
“I’d like to make an offer to the shit throwing denizens of TBP. I typically send a bit of fiat admins way on an irregular basis. My hope is that the money gets spent to offset TBP expenses that admin incurs, however, I give it freely he can spend it however he wishes even if that includes romancing his lovely wife Avalon at the nearest dive bar. (I hear that they are fond of those places.)
Ever since discovering TBP, the place has felt like home and I truly appreciate all the effort admin puts into running it. So, in that spirit I am going to send admin my usual, paltry fiat donation AND I am also going to do something I’ve never, ever done before. I’m going donate an actual ounce of .999 silver in the form of one Silver Bullet Silver Shield round (pictured below) along with a coin holder signed by the designer, Chris Duane himself. The current average selling price of this round on eBay is over $70! Admin can do whatever he wants with it. Sell it. Donate it. Keep it or even wear it on a chain around his neck as he navigates the 30 blocks of squalor!
In addition to that, I will donate one dollar for every individual shit throwing monkey that makes a donation to admin, up to $20. Since I’m a bit late getting this out, lets make the deadline January 5th, 2013. So, if twenty different people step up and make a donation of any size by 1-5-2013, I will add $20 to my paltry fiat donation. If only fifteen people donate, I’ll add $15. I’ll trust admin to tell me how many monkeys make a donation. He seems like an honorable guy.”
