Perhaps the board was just clamoring for the enshrinement of threads that are nothing more than throw-aways, I suppose...
Awfully coincidental that, of the 20 shortest "classic" threads in the history of this site, four were created by Phil. He's either the master of the instant classic or a mod with an inflated opinion of himself.
I linked the threads, so you can decide for yourself if you'd like. Don't worry...it will only take you about three minutes to read them all (not including the time you spend laughing and/or standing up and applauding Phil's rapier wit.)
If you allow for the latter, it should take you about three minutes.
