    It seems our beloved Teh Penalty Box is getting a bit wonky and wobbly bonkers as it approaches the 100,000 post mark. With the permission of Anglo Large Claw Otter this will be the next version of the Box. Enjoy and post away

    If memory serves, and it probably doesn't, this is the eighth iteration of the Box. We've got more than Doctor Who.
