Hi everyone,

We've hit an amazing milestone together after just under two years of starting the giffgaff community. Together we've all contributed to the success of giffgaff and make this community what it is today. I've thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it and long may it continue. I'm very excited as I can now reveal that last Monday the giffgaff community hit an amazing 1 million posts!
So this week we've been looking back at some of our favourite threads from the past two years to share with you. Enjoy ^^ :smileywink:;

From the ever brilliant trick202 wrote an intrepid rant on the scandalous prices of Fish and Chips. A brilliant metaphor for a customer's picky wants.

All the way through to this member posting about a rather embarrassing situation which started with him admitting to eating some of his sim card....

Who can forget cjtaylor03 attempts to make Koolaid Wine... "Anyone else ever tried this or fermenting something else really weird?"

Severian posted this absolutely stunning, although image heavy, thread of cinemagraphs, introducing the new art form to the community.

While Navi51 writes about a cynic's view of giffgaff :smileywink:

Hamishlaw finds out our secret.... giffgaff can read your mind! and when we're not being telepathic - we're being run by the police! (queue andy0's comment which made me giggle :smileyhappy:)

Zerodudex333 told us about his 'Wilky Wonka' phone call which promotes a few others to share their funny phone calls with company call centres.
We also enjoyed reading the comments on 'Micro SIMs - Cut and fit...', where our members discussed the techniques of cutting SIMs into Micro-SIMs. Pinkcalculator: "lol I've got three orange ones, how many will I need to practice on. "

Funkylogik talks about his maneating pet snail.... to be fair - we get more of our fair share of unusual threads from Funky - The time he ran out of toilet roll, the time he lost a snake, and the time he tried to boil an egg...

13 worst slogan translations
by stephen1972 (this one tickles your feet) "When Parker Pen marketed a ball-point pen in Mexico, its ads were supposed to have read, "It won't leak in your pocket and embarrass you." The company thought that the word "embarazar" (to impregnate) meant to embarrass, so the ad read: "It won't leak in your pocket and make you pregnant.""

And I know we've definitely missed out some great ones, so please help remind us of some moments of pure brilliance by linking your favourite threads with a short description, on your journey to one million giffgaff posts?
