Well, then, should it have been "You don't type?"
When I grew up, my Dad would say "You don't say?" whenever I, as a child, started yapping.

They're all victims of the war on Christmas, which the Church of O'Reilly is defending. If you have to ask, you're a Satanic heathen.

Comment: As I discovered while in Germany, menus translated into English
can be a problem even if the translation is perfect. In some cases items
have different names in English, so the translation isn't really
meaningful. On a German dessert menu "Coup Danmark" could be translated
"Cup Denmark", but it is a hot fudge sundae.

Even worse are those items which should not be translated into English at
all, including some which were not in German in the first place. I know
what filet mignon is, but translated it into either German or English and
I won't recognize it. Most Americans know, at least in a general way, what
filet mignon is, but how many know what it means?

Comment: I have a question I have owned 2 Honda CRV's my question is why
hasn't Honda and or Toyota established auto dealer in some of the smaller
towns?We love are Honda but we don't like the idea that we need to travel
a hour and a helf to get to a dealership why doesn't Honda start
dealerships up in towns where county seats are I think they would really
increase their sales.

Comment: I saw this on the tonight show last week. Lucy lue was the guest
and said she had just come back from Japan and that they had toilet seats
that were warmed by electricity. She said that there have been incidences
of people being electrocuted by the toilet seats. It sounded like lore to
me. I believe that they have these toilet seats though. She also said
that sushimi was raw fish. A friend of mine was married to a lady from
Okinawa and tells me that sushi is raw and sushimi is cooked.

Fairly simple explanation, when you're part of Snopes' Inner Circle. If you promise not to tell anyone else what I'm about to describe, and to learn the secret handshake no later than midnight, I'll forward your membership card and free decoder ring ASAP.

David's brain indeed has exploded from inane and incomprehensible messages such as these. For several years, Snopes has been run by an autonomous Artificial Intelligence located in an impregnable bunker somewhere in Nevada. Some of us remember the sudden style and opinion changes that happened at the time, but we've long become used to the current situation and rarely think about it anymore.

Thanks are unnecessary - just send me three payments of $29.95 to cover your membership dues for the remainder of this year.

Comment: What a great site! I use it almost daily to measure the
sanity/culpability of my friends who forward things. Wonderful writer-ing.
Barbara Mikkelson is a curious name. Did it used to be Abrahamson or
something like that? Someone of that name used to predict the future of
the semiconductor industry at a company called In-Stat in Scottsdale.
Just curious, but I mean it about the writer-ing. Great stuff.

Comment: Born on December 8th, 1953 in Yakima, Washington, Sam Kinison's
beginnings were fairly innocent. His father was a Pentacostal preacher,
and the family lived in a church in Peoria, Illinois. Sam and his brothers
followed in their father's footsteps by touring churches across the Bible
Belt and earning a decent living. But that wasn't enough for Sam. As his
preachings became increasingly too much for the average churchgoer, he
took his thoughts and ideas to comedy clubs.

Hard-drinking and hard-partying became a major part of his act, until it
became his downfall. After realizing that drink and drug were killing him,
he decided to clean up his life. He sobered up and married beautiful
Malika Souiri, who appeared with him in his shows and in his music videos.
Ironically, on their way to a sold-out show in Laughlin, Nevada, the
newlyweds' car was struck head-on by a teenaged drunk driver, injuring
passenger Malika, and killing Sam in 1992.


My pastor said that when he had crashed a friend was there and went up to
him before he was pulled from the car and before he died, he was screaming
that he was not ready to die.
