My sig is a link to a quote by an idiot from Free Republic.

As noted, mine's a quote from Bullshit's Dolphin episode that I found highly amusing.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

The forums-related stuff is self-explanatory. The French is one of my favourite quotes. It's difficult to maintain the original meaning without having it become awkward-sounding when translating it into English, but here's my attempt: "I'm forced to laugh at it all, for fear of having to cry". Seemed appropriate, given the main purpose of the site, as well as my general take on life.

Bonus: Another favourite French quote of mine is "Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose", or "The more things change, the more they stay the same".

I don’t think the English sounds awkward at all. Quite the opposite, actually.

That said, my sig is just lampshading my username.

My name is a tribute to the L Word and the best character ever-- Shane McCutcheon. The siggy is just a sexy pic of Kate in one of her signature poses from L Word advertisements.

The quotes are: one is from MaybeNever when we were talking about home invasion prevention
The second is a Scots-Gaelic phrase that says: He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war. (I think it's self-explanatory in my personal beliefs as to why I keep weapons in the house. You never know when you might need one to scare someone or defend yourself)

My signature has 4 parts. Part one is because I am derpy. Skywarp will push you down the stairs. And a children's show from 1985 featured an episode where the bad guys got drunk.

Part 2 is because I never noticed how questionable 80s cartoons were until I started rewatching them with my children. Bee, my five year old, was the first to point it out. When a five year old spots things before you do, you know they laid it on pretty thick.

Questionable children's programming for the WTF.

Part 3 is two fold. I like Mark Twain. I also have always sort of wondered that. If no one is beyond forgiveness, if Christians really are all about love, then why does no one try to show compassion towards the one they claim needs it the most.

Part 4 was something someone posted on facebook that I happened to like.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

Mine is from this music video:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DcfXVL0mh0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DcfXVL0mh0</a>

I loved the dragon/demon in it, so I made a GIF of him.

And then there's whatever dragons or eggs I happen to be raising :V

I found mine on Tumblr. It fit my bookish persona so well I just had to use it. Belle is also my favorite Disney princess and she looks like my avatar, who looks like me, so...

Now I wish I could find the Belle "I read the most wonderful book" thing from tumblr I saw a few weeks back.

For the first part...click it and find out! For the second, it somehow got stuck in my head after a StarKids marathon, and I adjusted the "shivved" part to something more befitting a blueblood wizard. Also because my family are all bloody Muggles.

I stole the image off of the memebase My Little Brony, and I did so because I love Pinkie Pie. The quote is from the cartoon, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic; the episode entited The Ticket Master

Do you speak any French? Just curious, what with your username and all.

It's a limerick Tai wrote about the game with the best song ever in it.

His rainbows around like a dove

And then make-believe with you

Mine is based off the fact that on a forum i used to visit when i was 12 i used to run a thread called Song of The Week and i would periodically update it with songs i like so now i use it as my sig and constantly update it every week when i remember.
