That wasn't very funny. I'll give it a 3/10.

A better introduction might raise it to 4/10.

I'm sorry to say, but no, it's not that funny. Good try though. There was a video on xtranormal about a guy blowing the whistle on corrupt police officers. Now THAT was funny. If I run into it again, I'll post it.
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

Yep pitching original thought to seasoned skeptics, is a tough sell. I thought that it was great, nice effort!

Now you make me want to post one of mine! Keep up the good work.

Good one!! But you are nothing so mundane: picante!
Poblano, maybe.
Ancho.
A Mexican chef told me that much that was rigid and unattractive in Americans (or in fact the English- speaking peoples of the world) could be cured by getting some decent spices into the food, and there might be something to that.
Do no hide your light under a bland menu.

Hmmm. Maybe I should've gone with "piss and vinegar"?
