All I can say is if pandas are now using Mapquest to find our houses with just the telephone number, the human race is in serious trouble.

So, um, how does an "old guy" drinking Coke kill you young, exactly? Or was "Me Young" the owner of the Chinese laundromat down the street?

It was a bunny with a pancake on its head. IIRC, the caption was, "I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, so here's a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head."

This isn't the exact image, but here's lots of pictures of a bunny with stuff on his/her head.

Two whole years ago! And since then, they've taught you the capital letters as well! Don't forget the little ones - they can be useful too, away from the start of a sentence.

Comment: Do all legends contained for this site get demolished if sent to
a place of work due to the sketchiness of the topic or are some allowed to
be sent? I'm not clear on the privacy policy. When I first went to your
site I read what I could but forgot the policy on this. I'd be much
obliged to get this answer. I'm a computer dummy.
