In fact, when the heap of spare parts later to be known as KeyBoard came up with that acronym in the first episode of The ADVENTUREs of MacGirl and KeyBoard, MacGirl replied, "Actually it's not just icy-cold espresso. A lot of people think that iced-coffee is just cold coffee with ice in it but it isn't... it has to be made with milk, and sugar, and cream on top, and sometimes icecream and vanilla essence. It's a treat, not just a cold drink.Ó Angela and Dustan will be starting up an iced coffee website some time soon, rating all of the iced coffees they've tried in the quest for the perfect one. If they can manage to get permission from the superhero herself, they might even quote MacGirl somewhere on the site.

Angela Brett, when somebody spammed the Apronyms Forums about a website promising 'instant fame', where the fame was no more than having your name on a website... something you could achieve by posting a message on the forums. I don't recommend spamming the forums, however, please post something constructive instead.

100% INSTANT FAME (2)I'll Now Spam To Attract Nitwits To Find About My Eminence Angela Brett, when somebody spammed the Apronyms Forums about a website promising 'instant fame', where the fame was no more than having your name on a website. The site appeared to be run by the Yellow Pages, and as I doubt they would resort to forum-spam for advertising, I can only assume the poster was trying to attract people to the site in order to increase his or her own 'fame'. Although, if having your name on a website counts as fame, then the simple act of posting on the forums gave just as much fame as the fame website itself.
