Nominate Your Favorite Drabblecast Intros/Outtros

Credit for the idea goes to Strawman, who thinks it would be nifty to come up with a list (and perhaps even a compilation) of the community's favorite intros and outtros.

I'll get us started with these personal favorites of mine:

- Episode 184 - Breast Cancer Awareness Month
- Episode 51 - The aerosolized pig brains Drabblenews segment
- Episode 262 - The Halloween episode where Cryptkeeper Norm gets visited by... err... Luke or Kendall... the Ghosts of Editors Past or such - mainly I remember it for "ghost handjobs"
- Episode 164 - The Big Mac rap
- Episode 204 - Another "Women and Aliens" month bit that's an extended PMS joke, but with clips of dudes losing their shit spliced in
- Episode 267 - The whole episode where Norm's broadcasting from his basement bunker at the end of the world with his cat
- Episode 273 - One "serious" outtro I loved was Norm's explanation of Solipsism after "The Electric Ant". It made my brain wrinkle.

Yeah, they'll let any moron with a parasitic moustache and 1000 posts be a moderator these days. Hey, maybe you should apply!

Oh! I just remembered!

Episode 236 - Vag Yeast beer intro! *Twitch*

I must've repressed that memory.

This idea is not getting the necessary attention, due to the fact that we don't have any discrete in/out reference material. Not all episodes got the same level of involvement, so everything needs a relisten and annotation. That's a lot of earwork.

Ideas?

I'm thinking part of the problem is this thread's location on the DrabbleQuotes forum itself as well, which is dead enough that I don't even think regulars know to stop by and see what's new here.

Yes, let's move. But also thinking if we had a crew of volunteers, we could assign blocks of eps to catalog in/outs.

That's a really good idea. It would probably take a few months depending on how many people pitched in, but it's doable.

I'm extremely short on time until probably this weekend; unless someone else wants to spearhead it, let's revisit it later.

I've been listening to back episodes, noting ones which have more than a sentence or two of Normisms. I'll post my results as I collect them.

I'm just listing episodes which have an intro worth mentioning. You can listen and write up a description if you like, we'll add it in to a list.
At which point, then I will do my top 10 list.
