FAPP, FOPP, Flip-Floppers

With a tip of my cap and a devilish twinkle in my eye, I'll see LoudMan bet wager and raise him one. As you can read in his LoudMan's post , he is suggesting an alternate challenge to that of FOPP, or Friends of Persona Paper, and calling his group FAPP, or Fun at Persona Paper.

SuffolkJason took this challenge as a call to arms, tongue-in-cheek, in this post .

I have come to the conclusion that despite the slight variation in the names of the challenge groups, they both represent the same basic idea: To grow Personal Paper, one post at a time and have fun doing so. C'mon guys -- you say po taa to, he says po ta to.

SuffolkJason suggested we call those who belong to both groups Flip-Floppers. Melody23 seconded that motion. Dictator LoudMan squashed the idea, but his is just one vote. Right now it is three votes to one, and Flip-Floppers is the official designation for someone who accepts both challenges -- until we have votes that determine otherwise. (Na-na LoudMan )

For you enjoyment, I have found the original recording by the Ames Brothers of a song called " Rag Mop ." (Just click on the orange Coral label in the right column.) Below please enjoy this bouncy tune, altered in its lyrics to reflect FAPP and FOPP.


I say FA



FAPP, FOPP, Flip-Flop


I say FO



FOPP, FAPP, Flip-Flop!

Have fun one and all, whether you've joined the challenge(s) or not. Life is too short not to smile when we have the chance.

I will vote for none. It is PPers and that's it. Why should we have groups here? We are all one in this and so shall we stay.

You are right -- we are all in this together. The groups are not groups per se but rather people who have accepted a challenge. It's just to make it a bit more fun, but no one has to participate if there is no interest to. We're still interacting with anyone whose writing we enjoy, just as before. : )

I must not have drank enough yet tonight to grasp what exactly is happening here. I'll keep at it.

There are no other votes in my realm. I am The Minority Rule there. THE SINGULARITY of LAW.

And, this is cute. Thank you.

Flip Floppers has a nice ring to it. What do we call PPers who DO NOT belong to any group?

This post is too funny!

Lol, I am not sure this is one of those things that the addition of alcohol will aid at all, but please let us know if I'm wrong. : )

I'm afraid you are a kingdom of one. But you can certainly rule that realm in whatever manner you choose. Flip-flopper, flip-flopper!

You are most welcome.

All PPers are PPers, of course. That's the most important distinction of all. I think it's important to keep it simple, don't you? People will soon be mixing their FAPPers with the FOPPers, along with the Flip-Floppers.

In the final analysis, we are PPers, one for all and all for one. Wait, that line has been used somewhere before, hasn't it? : )

Onward and Upward, Together!

Ha Ha I like it! FAPP FOPP Flip-Flop No matter the side I am having fun!

Agree with you Feisty56 , we are all PPers.

All this talk about having different groups in PP is amusing and funny really. All in the name of good fun!

Feisty56 wrote on September 6, 2014, 9:38 PM

It is good fun!

It is fun just being silly sometimes!

I missed the FAPP So I guess I'm just a flop instead of a flip flop. I'll have to check this out!! Your post made me laugh!

It's funny, because I heard a different song in my head-- "Rapper's Delight"--or we'll call it "FAPPers Delight", or "FOPPers Delight" or maybe "Flip-Floppers Delight", depending upon your persuasion.
I said-a FAPP, a-FOPP,
The FAPPie, the FOPPie
To the Flip-Flop, and you don't stop
We write to the fip-fap-floppy
Say, up jumped the floopy
To the click of the clackety keys

I am not sure what is going on but it sounds like a lot of fun. Goes to show you that I haven't been around here lately.
