[center][b]Keynote speech from the GOONS Thousand Day Celebration, delivered by Member Emeritus Lamuella[/b][/center]

Friends, confederates, honoured guests and dignitaries, we stand before you today at the summit of our triumphal march.

For ten times ten times ten days, the world has known the name and heard the voice of the Goon Order of Oppression, Negligence and Sadism, and for all fifty score of those days, we have divided and transformed the world's opinion.

We have been and are hated. We have been and are feared. We have been the toast of the cyberverse and a name spoken as a curse by cowards who flinch and traitors who sneer. We have persisted where a thousand braying voices told us we would fall. We have thrived where a thousand craven souls prophesied our comeuppance. We have lost and gained friends, courted and abandoned the favour of the masses. Where possible and where desirable we have turned enemies into friends. Where impossible or undesirable we have turned enemies into irrelevancies.

A thousand days ago we stepped blinking into the new dawn of Planet Bob and decided to carve out a home. A thousand days ago we began to send the world a message: though words and anctions, through the overtures of diplomacy and the cruelty of war. The Goon Order is amongst you: Like it or hate it, you will learn to love it, and you cannot ignore it.

A thousand days of peace and war, hatred and friendship, the cheers of our friends and the tears of our foes.

A thousand days... is just the start.

We have ascended this summit, this sanction, and now we see it for what it truly is. A foothill. A base camp. We grasped the brass ring and we find it to be the bottom rung of a ladder we cannot help but climb.

For a thousand days, we cut at the world to carve out a place for ourselves, reshaping the world to accommodate us.

Now, we seek to remake the world in our image.

Friends, confederates, honoured guests, I give you the thousand days of our history, and offer to you a thousand years of our future.

Lesson for the future: don't speed read things you aren't interested in and then try commenting on them.
