I'll admit, there is something exhilarating about entering a fresh new thread and seeing zero replies and a big fat softball of a joke just waiting to be knocked out of the park.
No feeling can compare to being "in the zone" and charging at that huge zero-reply hole like Barry Sanders, knowing that if you can just type your one-liner fast enough and hit the "submit" button before your competitors who are trying to do the same thing, you just might live on in infamy as the person who derailed a thread so effectively that it becomes a Bungie.net legend!
This is especially so considering how often this magnificent feat is attempted. Indeed, some users devote a substantial portion of their entire Bungie.net existence to attempting to be the humorous one-liner first reply of a legendary thread. And skilled though some of these users may be, sometimes they simply fail to be in the right place at the right time, like a female gymnast who peaks in a non-Olympic year.
No, legendary first replies require the same elusive combination of talent, luck, and experience as a Pulitzer-prize winning photograph. They cannot be engineered. They cannot be manufactured. But when your moment comes, you must be ready for it.
Will you be?
