interviews, personal accounts, opinion pieces, etc. The Italics have hinted that they might give
us exposure if we present an acceptable plan. For more info, join our email group

The Sporkites are a dedicated group of thingites who
campain for most thingite goals but with a few extras.
- We will campain to abolish weekdays ALTOGETHER (except thing, a weekly holiday) and
leave only weekends, so Thing, Poets, Doobry and Dontbry go round in an endless cycle.
Despite this, you may still refer to the cursed weekdays, but ONLY to avoid confusion.
- Our long, long, long term objective is to eventually beat out No!no!no!
- Two Sporks will be given to each member, and should be posted in conversations.
- All out sillyness past even the main body of thingites!
Interested? Confused? Worried? Don't be, take a look at the Sporkites page and everything will become clear.

researchers in each zone - but I need your help!
If you would like to help, then go to Which time zone are you
in? and put your name down in one of the conversations.
