Well, we all know Tom, that quack, is back to himself when he throws down the word pun gauntlet! Now, as I migrate towards a suitable reply and duck his retorts, I think I might just be flocked!

YIPES!!! I happen to stumble upon ONE little pun, reminiscent of the blind squirrel's nuts, and it's taken as a GAUNTLET?!!!

Gaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! <then ROFL> then gaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!! My goose is cooked! I'm not ready to go toe-to-toe w/ a punmeister like Janet!!!

<even sneaking 'migrate' in there heehee janet . .. .very good!>

I live on a dry campus and haven't figured out if sparkling grape juice is ok.

This is the Peter they mentioned speaking. When I said I was going to go back to near the beginning, Emily suggested I sit down with an alcoholic beverage. I started the first evening with a dry white wine, but on the second evening has switched to something more potent, as depicted in my current avatar.

If you read through the thread, you will fun many funny things, many wierd things, and some proof that most of us here are warped. And we not only believe in the mythical Yeti, we have one among us.

Welcome, JoyfulM.

dry campus. I lived on one once, too. In the south. Alas, I was a non-drinker for many, many years.

WTH happened to me? :lol:

I never go to class any more and am a bit behind. :ph34r:

Why have I become such a slacker???????????????????????????????????????? :blink:

It's peer pressure, you know!! All the cool kids are havin' fun on the silly thread!! B)

OK, so did Sesame Street write the song and asked him to sing it or did they ask him to write and sing the song? :huh:

Cookies are on hold!!! I dropped the d@mn carton of eggs!!! :angry: They just don't taste/cook the same without eggs!

By the way, SuZee, it makes it hard for you to deny being here when you are actually posting!

Jhae-knit : I like it :lol:

I'm sad to say that I'm currently using this thread as my main contact with real life.

I think I might just be flocked!

Uh......haven't heard flock used as a verb before...

And in the passive voice, yet(?)...

I was flocked

We have been flocked

They will have been flocking

Does this mean to be tricked? No, that's to be fleeced...

Is it somehow sexual? I want to know if I want to be flocked. :o:lol:

Ahh yes Peter-Peter-soon-to-be-I'll-assume-tho-I-can't-say-for-sure-Pumpkin-Pie-Eater, I was amazed & impressed at your readback.

Are pages 100-202 next?

Or have you already gone back further than 202?

I did try to start at page 1 once... . .ack!!! A couple pages of annoying songs/jingles?

I don't need any help getting annoying songs stuck in my head!!

I'm sad to say that I'm currently using this thread as my main contact with real life.

frightening thought :ph34r:

OMG - some days that is the same for me!!!!! sitting here, typing away, hours pass, I realize I haven't seen a human, in real life, for two days. :o good gawd.............

I was flocked

We have been flocked

They will have been flocking

Does this mean to be tricked? No, that's to be fleeced...

Is it somehow sexual? I want to know if I want to be flocked. :o:lol:

:blink: what'd I miss - sounds interesting.......

:lol:

Um, yeah, the other day I went back and read the first 14 or 16 pages of this thread.....it was pretty tame back then.............it was when the true lunatics joined us that it all got completely absurd................ you now who you are

Well, I have certainly heard it as a verb, but usually in the active voice: "The birds just flocked to the feeder after I put the seed in."

Maybe I didn't hear correctly, but I may have also heard it in the imperative voice: "Flock off!" :lol:

Ahh yes Peter-Peter-soon-to-be-I'll-assume-tho-I-can't-say-for-sure-Pumpkin-Pie-Eater, I was amazed & impressed at your readback.

I haven't gone back to page 1, so I don't really get the full story of the Yeti. I have read forward from page 200, looking for the parade story. It starts with a post from Emily on page 202.

Maybe I didn't hear correctly, but I may have also heard it in the imperative voice: "Flock off!" :lol:

Yes, I'd say you captured what I was trying to convey . . .And Emily, when you asked if you should want to be flocked . . . I just didn't have a good answer for you. I guess it depends on who is doing the flocking. :rolleyes:

For those who dare to venture back :unsure: . . . the yeti is first mentioned by Jess on page 186. It was dropped but then brought up again on page 200. From there . . . well, it just snow balled from there. And now he truly is a legend. :)

Okay, it looks like I need to go back, again, and read pages 186 through 199. But not tonight, as it is getting past 11pm here and I need to get up early in the morning for work. Jess started it, you say. Hmm.

I don't need any help getting annoying songs stuck in my head!!

I actually started there and thought it was rather lame. I then skipped to 250ish then to 300ish then to 350 and read on from there. Can you tell that I only had one class today?

And truly, it probably wouldn't matter if I didn't live on a dry campus. The one time I might have had a couple sips of a friend's margarita (uh...yeah...I'm a minor until Friday :ph34r: ) I got very very sick. And I seriously mean only a few sips. Diet Pepsi is my beverage of choice, with some Mountain Dew thrown in when necessary.

Change blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.

I have got to say that even with all the nicknames I had/have, JoyPhlegm is not one of them.

There was a kid in middle school that called me Yodge. I guess that's what he thought Joy spelled backwards is, but I never understood it. :huh:

Dear goodness I need to go to bed...

I spoke to my son's teacher yesterday (she's American)

I wanted to ask her if she was doing anything for Thanksgiving - but all that kept coming to mind was ''does she know about pull my finger'' :lol::o ........shocking!! I managed to keep my deranged wonderings (or was it wanderings???) to myself :lol::ph34r:

Well, if you've already read 200 and on, you really only need to read page 186. It isn't mentioned again until 200. Of course if you WANT to read it because we are all just so darn amusing . . . :rolleyes:

As in "I'll have a Diet Pepsi with a splash of Mountain Dew?" . . . so you like mixed drinks, huh?
