SILENCE, MORTALS! YOUR INSIPID PULING AFFRONTS ME TO THE TIPS OF MY TENTACLES. PITY? THEY WHO LOOK ON THE BLOODIED HUSKS OF HUMAN FLESH THAT REMAIN ON THIS THREAD WILL PITY THE INSIGNIFICANT BIPEDS WHO INCURRED MY WRATH!

I have no wish to know about the state of your probosci, thank you very much. That sort of thing (or those things) really shouldn't be discussed in polite society, or indeed any sort of society. At least, that's what my parents told me.

Oh, go learn to think for yourself, rather than dragging your mother into everything. I agree that it was tasteless, even for an elder god, and the less I have to think about anything's throbbing desperate tumescence the better, but that's because I know it's bad.

Some of us don't have to be taught. Some of us are capable of discerning the universal moral law.

Also, think of the orphans! What would you say to those who had no mothers, hmm?

There you go, reminding us of Oliver Twist and Little Orphan Annie and the Little Match Girl and all the other so-called characters whose cutesy antics attempt to provoke sickening clouds of sentimental tears from any reader rash enough to go near Victorian literature. Now I'm going to have to go and find the brain bleach.

So you accord Oliver Twist the dignity of his own name, whilst bestowing the demeaning 'little' on Orphan Annie and that heroine of late Victorian commercio-capitalist enterprise, Match Girl!!! Do you not realise how aintiquated this makes you sound, how mysoginistic, how totally unreconstructed? Drag yourself into the modern age, please, and don't sully the board with the very Victorian attitudes you so lamely attempt to critique. [Disappointed]

Poxy buggers, talk like a pirate day? Do ninjas have a talk like a ninja day? Of course not. They don't need one. Pirates need a day on which everybody talks like them in order to protect them from their awareness of their own inadequacy, but ninjas are just naturally superior. And of course silent and deadly.

Pirates may have been murdering, bloodthirsty thieves but that is a pretty low comparison.
As far as Pola, phroar, but Bacall's voice, oh my. Oh. My.
Shame on you Kelly! Making making me drool on my keyboard and erm, well, we will leave it at that.

You are aware that this modern hyper obsession with germs has lead to the oversterilization of our public spaces, and thus to supergerms? You know, supergerms, germs that have been hit by so many varieties of hand gels, counter sprays, antibiotics, liquid soaps, and doorknob-rinses that they are sublimely resistant and our immune systems cower before them?

Thank you for your contribution.

Hunni-bunni, your whole post smacks of a bobtail mired in the depths of denial. All this talk of supergerms and immune system malfunction is a carefully mounted smokescreen to divert attention from the plethora of dustballs and mould patches that adorn (or, as you would no doubt say, "add character") to your fetid little burrow. Pick up your scourer and break open the bleach, and join the rest of us in a bright new tomorrow. After all, as I learned in Sunday School, cleanliness is next to godliness.

How cruel of you to point out Tweetie's limitations and the implication that all she has are her dreams of soaring with the eagles, whilst her somewhat dumpy, rotund form remains tethered to mundane reality. [Disappointed] Just because she may be somewhat lacking in height and blessed with a capacious girth, this does not mean that she cannot attain great feats of speed and grace whilst launching herself off the ice-floes, her little flippers gaily flapping as she breasts the waves. Do not allow your mind to be limited by stereotyped views of avian fauna, but rather allow yourself to see the virtues of the, shall we say, alternatively blessed.

And "breasting" the waves? I'll thank you not to perv on our poor penguin!

I kind of agree, actually, but where do YOU get off addressing Smudgie as your sister? Have you put the hours in? Has she kicked your ass 3,765 times on Facebook Scrabble? If not, you can only hope to be a cousin or something.

Was that a heightist comment I saw there, Mamacita? [Roll Eyes] I know our Kelly is somewhat challenged in the sense-of-humour department, but that's no reason to make pointed comments about her having to stoop when her nose is about as close as you can get to the ground to start with.

You are so right, Dafyd. We are so encouraged to put on a false front and hurry through our traumas, that we never get to truly feel our feelings.

For instance-- I feel oppressed and harried that, of all quotes you had to throw around, you chose one that has been thrown around about 575 times on these boards. How much am I to endure? I mean, we all love Kerri Mulligan, but come on.

Buddsy, is the rhetorical question the only discursive device in your somewhat paltry armoury? Three in a row can be considered overkill, you know. And although it may be somewhat simplistically stated that a rhetorical question is one that is asked without expectation of an answer, your final question begs a suitable riposte. Are we children? Clearly, some of us are. And who, pray tell, is Kerri Mulligan? Flaunting your acquaintance with the great philosophers de nos jours might be considered a form of vanity.

Is there anything more tedious than someone who discovers "we have standards" and then starts preaching them in great detail at every possible occasion.

It's a slippery slope, uffda. I mean: preaching hectoring, lecturing, and spewing out your own morality like some third-rate Mrs. Grundy. Take a course in patience and tolerance, for God's sake.

As for that last-- my eyes are opened. I am Linus, you are my Lucy. She, too wished Linus had never been born. The theological implications are staggering.

Linus. Lucy. My God, you are actually resorting to references to the comic strips!!! How low can you get? How I miss the old days on Ship of Fools -- the neiges d'antan, if you will -- when high-minded posters came and went, talking of Michelangelo.

I can tell that, never having met you, except on these pages, you should not remind us of last year's snow but rather souffleuses à neige de l'année dernière, as it is apparent you are better at blowing than snowing.

And thank you, dear Smudgie, for your complimentary tone. I shan't take it too seriously however, because you're most likely sharpening your beak, after thinking you've softened me up. [Big Grin]

Royboy,
You complain of cartoon yet speak of ninja turtles.
And Uff dear, I would complain of your not translating that bit of French if it weren't a greater crime that you do not translate your words of English.

I take offense at your offensive junior hosting.
Don't you know that's my job?
Not junior hosting.
Senior hosting.
Don't you see the grey hairs adorning my head as a badge of honour?
And you lot - quit with the horrendous showing off of your rudimentary grasp of forrin languages. It's a sign you don't know what you're talking about when even you can't translate it.

(Spot the hostly comment there without making the effort to clamber onto the hosting rock and wave a hostly herring in the air? Remember that the rules apply even here, won't you? Translation needed if you're going to try to impress us with your French)

Miss you, Erin.

Duly chastised, I will simply say that, not being an aficionado of the French language myself, I was intrigued by Roybart's "neiges d'antan." I'm afraid I exposed it to my Bing translator only to discover that it referred to "last year's snow." Using the same translator, I wondered what "last year's snowblower" would sound like in French.
I have to admit it did sound better in French, yet I left a clue.

Sad to say, the pointed beak of the bird has struck, and very nearly wiped my avatarish smirk right off my face. I'm tempted to say "Au revoir!" but I will, in deference to that pesky penquin simply say: "See ya later!"

You know what's cruelest about all that? You're using Google Translate to make yourself look smarter. The translator is to be used only to check your work in languages you already speak near-perfectly—indeed, it's great at showing places you're likely to screw up, because it already has—but only for this. Here you go adding to the impression that everyone here speaks French, when, really, none of you do.

Jerks.

Well, don't think I didn't catch your hamfisted allusion to The Waste Land, Ariston. Google first, then cannibalize, seems to be your default mode. This is a Christian site. Stealing other people's material and showing off is NOT Christian. Try a little honesty and humility. Come to think of it, try a little silence. Most of all, stop calling the rest of us "Jerks." That pun is bad, even in Ugro-Finnish).

roybart, allow me to offer you some timely and well-intentioned advice: you won't get far in this game by picking fights with Psycho-bunny and Lil' Tweetie and then adding insult to injury by calling Ariston a bit of a porker - 'hamfisted allusion' indeed. [Disappointed] A little more respect for our beloved Hosts and Admins, please, comme il faut. Modesty forbids me from setting myself on a pedestal as a model of propriety and sportsmanship in the game, but you really could do worse than follow my example.
