As a pig, I find your statement insulting. Bah! Phrases like "some of my best friends are pigs" just shows inner bigotry! Why must they have YOUR approval to be considered respectful?!?!

I dont understand how one could even consider making a name such as "Morbo," where 2/5 of the characters are vowels. The alphabet, which has 26 characters total, only has 5 vowels. Therefore only less than 1/5 should be a vowel, and distinct ones at that. Morbo has over double this expected ratio.

It's names like yours that make me want to get more invovled in vowel rights movements. I hope you're happy. [Mad]

I'm amusingly offended that you don't know that vowels have a higher probability of use in any given word than consonants, so a 5/26 ratio is never obtained, on average. . . besides, your name has a 1/2 ratio. Are you going to boycott your own name?

So me being an idiot and posting the wrong Graemlin is entertaining to you?

Is that right? I have to appear stupid in order for you to get joy out of my posts?

Sympathy for dial-up? What's wrong with it, I'd like to know? I am a firm supporter/user, thanks very much, and to refer to it in such a manner is quite offending.

How dare you compare a toilet with a throne. A true throne is a highly respected symbol of a monarch's authority, while a toilet is a crap bowl.

I am offended that anyone is still a monarchist toady in this day and age. Monarchs and their thrones have rightly been relegated to the dung heap of history, so I applaud Dr. Evil's crapper nomenclature.

I cannot believe you Morbo. First you go off for a couple of weeks and act like it's our fault.
Then you use my own personal Graemlin. The [Confused] is mine. If you look real hard there's a copyright in their, and it's all mine. It goes with the name you see.

What??? How can you even say that! I thought that was one of the best arrangements of graemlins I've ever seen. Furthermore, the compulsion to arrange graemlins is a legitimate condition acknowledged by the medical community at large, and there are several experimental drugs being made *right now* to treat it.

Way to take offense in the most predictable way possible; that's so typically mainstream. I just knew some unimaginative soulless corporate drone would go for the signature thing.

I take offense with your implication that people who are red in the face are also ill-dispositioned. My lovely little boy, who has the sweetest disposition in the world, is red-faced because he spent too much time in the sun without reapplying his sunscreen. Are you saying that he is foul-tempered and prone to angry outbursts?

I take offense at your indication that being foul-tempered and prone to angry outbursts is a *negative* trait. Look at Ernest Hemingway, Richard Nixon, and George Carlin. All great men with foul mouths.
