Dear Friend,
I am a former genral in the Canadian Armed forces, eh, who has escaped the recent conflicts with two hundreds million dollars (Cdn) and twelve Skyhawk helicopters--I am at present sitting in one, the other eleven have been stored in Newfundland--the bombs are falling now. I need a secured bank account in a developed nation in which to deposit this money (and some safety-deposit boxes for the Skyhawks). If you will only--wjhat is that smoke coming out of the turret?--if you will, dear friend, only respond with your persoanl account number I will condider sharing 1% (Cdn) of this koney with you. That is.......200 dollars (Cdn), for only your secured bank account number (and the safety-deposit boxes)--is that oil pressure gauge correct?--then fix it you fool!, eh. I eagerly await your prompt response--Mayday!

Posted by Gottmorder (Member # 5039) on :
Well, if someone was going to tell me to shut up, I'd prefer it if they weren't Canadian. [Razz]

What a coinky-dink, considering what's happening in your landmark post thread.
Posted by Ralphie (Member # 1565) on :
MoonRabit - Nice!

I wonder if it's any good. I'll have to check out the local British-style pubs around here to see if they import it.
Posted by Eruve Nandiriel (Member # 5677) on :
I was laughing at ale and swallow. Not the witch thing.

Posted by Black Mage (Member # 5800) on :
You can't turn me into a newt. I've got a +200 spell sheild.
Posted by Eruve Nandiriel (Member # 5677) on :
Apparently not +200 spelling...
Posted by BelladonnaOrchid (Member # 188) on :

I've skimmed your nutty commentary previously, deerpark, but that's inspired comedy! [Big Grin]

I plan to go through that crazy "worldplay" thread, but it approaches textural densities of Conrad or Joyce, so I lazily have neglected it, One of these days. . .
