As suggested (and endorsed by Ivy) here, I hereby declare this the "Make Ivy cry" thread. The idea is to post things in an attempt to push Ivy's sentimental/emotional/melancholy buttons, and see if we can elicit genuine tears. I suppose you could also be just plain mean, but this is the "Make Ivy cry" thread, not the "Piss off all of Ivy's friends" thread. (Hint: Ivy has a lot of friends. Very vindictive friends. You don't want to go there.)
Let the tear jerking commence!
