It's all the same to me, I can only see them if someone quotes them. But I could swear s/he's also asked to be banned in another incarnation...

Double that and divide it by two. That's how much I'm not paying you. :beee:

Did he misspell Putin or putting? I've never heard of Putin on a pedestal. However...

What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

That song will always belong to Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle as far as I'm concerned.

I've never heard anyone describe THAT as precious.

Trump did. He put his brand on it.

Oooo, I'll bet that hurt like the dickens. No wonder he's so pissy all the time.

Nah, it was just a pinprick. Barely felt a thing.

I was picturing him spread eagled beside a campfire, heating a lazy T branding iron. Way bigger (and hotter) than his pinprick.

Lazy T would be too big. Is there such a thing as a lazy period?

Although I doubt he'd ever admit to having a period between his legs.

A lazy comma?
