          we had a GREAT one over at the Wheel of Time Book Forum community some years ago, where it was created to make sense for that one particular community, i.e. it had all the regulars and oldbies in it doing/saying their most common things, etc. It was very characteristic, and one of the most hilarious things I've ever read ^_^
