Default The Miners Are Free!

They've finished pulling up the last of the Chilean miners!

I don't know, I just thought this deserved its own thread.

When they estimated they'd be free around Christmas, I seriously thought that they'd go bat**** insane and kill each other off before then.

Can't believe they're as well off as they are coming out of there.

If you were the first miner out, what would you have said?

I'd have gone with

"Well, that was a miner inconvenience."

or

"Well, it was a bit chilly down there."

or

"What happens in the mine, stays in the mine."

Their survival was clearly mine over matter.

I would hope after more than two months you'd be able to come up better than that.

To be honest, I only heard about the other day. I had no idea they'd been down there since August.

I have more quantity than quality.

"Make miner beer!"

I meant if you had been down there for that long.

I bet they were all sat down there, facing death, thinking of comical puns they can come out with if they survived. I know I would.

I haven't finished thinking of cheesy puns yet. Give me some time!

We could also think of television film ideas!

Well one of the guys did bring up a bunch of rocks as joke souvenirs for the rescuers.
