Perhaps it survived because it contains no stick men. The masochists among us may squint into the past here, provided you have the RevWeb plugin:

I had the good fortune to talk to him on the phone once about some AOL business, and he kept changing his voice between his natural one, Barney, and various other characters and accents, leaving me in stitches, not to mention confused about who I was really talking to. He was a joy, a really nice guy.
