He's pretty, mysterious, smart, stealthy, powerful, and he can pull of the sexy albino look!

Here's to Neighbor!!!!!!!


I s'pose my making this group makes me the president? Well, I'm cool with that! I hear-by advise all members to check out the art section of the Flaky Pastry site! Some very nice pictures of Neighbor.

Congratulations on your presidency of this new club XD

I'd like to contribute a brief spelling guide...

I certainly won't go ballistic over any of these issues, but this is what I consider whenever I refer to this character:

the neighbour.

the neighbour
I spell it with 'ou', simply because I use the canadian/british spelling, being canadian myself. I also spell things like 'colour' or 'humour'. It's CLASSIER. Quote me as saying I was misquoted.

the neighbour
I only ever refer to him as 'neighbour' without a determiner when someone is speaking to him directly. He can also be 'our neighbour' or 'your neighbour', depending on who is talking about him. Neighbour isn't his name, just his relationship to the main characters. The same way Kurt's name isn't Boyfriend. :smoochie:

the neighbour
For the same reason, I always a lower-case 'n', unless it's at the start of a sentence. (as above!) My soul burns with unquenchable flame!!


Cheers, and have fun Very Happy

Actually the U in those words was added well over a century after the or spelling in such words was recorded in english (it was used to determine a longer/stronger sounding o, that's why America doesn't have it because the grammatical shift was after we revolutionized the colonies Cool ), but Neighbour is an appropriate title because it's like Obi-Wan Kenobi 's Hyphen Cool

You simply have to spell it with a u in this case or it just wouldn't be the same Wink


(I learned that bit of trivia from the history channel)

Surprised

Well! I just started off my presidency with a heck of a lot of errors. Won't correct the original post, so as everyone can understand the dunce-cap ::slips that on::, but do allow me to correct myself.

This club is for the neighbour!

Neighbour is starting to sound like a funny word.

Neighbour neighbour neighbour.

And the more I read it the more Germanic it appears.

You know what else is a funny word?

scuuuuuuba


Gazeeeebo


galoshes


Zeeebra


I wonder if The Neighbour ever rides Zebras wearing Galoshes after Scuba diving with Marelle in the submersible Gazebo.

Quark is the definitive funny word, it says so in Calvin and Hobbes.

Galoshes are far funnier, but if Calvin and Hobbes said Quark is funnier, it must be so. Possibly, it was the ears....

:O Hobbes in four galoshes! :O :O Calvin in four galoshes!

It is a quirk, that Calvin and Hobbes wore Golashes while viewing Quarks through Scuba plates while sitting on their Gazebo as Marelle and the Neighbour raced Zebras through the Submersible.

Cool

While not canon, it does sound HIGHLY entertaining! XD

Sir, there's a cannon in your canon.

I'm not sure what that'd have to do with galoshes.

@ Kevin -- Bravo! :p

Neighbor - in four galoshes, wearing a raincoat, with an umbrella on his head?

We'll try to avoid thinking about Neighbor wearing less than whatever. Having those kinds of thoughts about a manga/cartoon character... tsk, tsk, tsk. (Besides, all the other characters would get jealous.)

No, I didn't notice anything strange about my tea, why do you ask? :blinks:

You really need to enter that in the Fan Contest! That's seriously cute.
