PDA

View Full Version : April Foolishness (An Open Letter)

Although we had scads of fun with the jokes (and they were flying fast and furious), I feel compelled to apologize for letting myself get carried away.

Some of you are scratching your heads and going 'Wha?'
Others know exactly what I'm talking about.

For any offences (and I must have offended more than a few), I truly apologize.

I've inherited my Mom's sense of humor, rest her soul. The woman never met a person she didn't genuinely love and have compassion for, yet she could cut up with the best of them. The one skill she had that I don't possess was to know where the line of demarcation is drawn.

Nothing more to say, really, as I'm as guilty as sin. Should I make it to next year without managing to get myself booted from AW, I'll try and subdue the more coarse bits of my humor.

Sorry I didn't do this earlier, but I didn't want to give anything away. Do you know how difficult it is to stay away from AW all day? It's maddening.

Arriva turkey,
Rick

All I can say is this:

By my clock, it's now April 2nd.

Now who's going to clean up this mess?!

Duh! Pooh has to swim a verrrry long way (across the big ocean), and go back in time (caboz we Aussies are on tomorrow's time), before you can see him.

Shweta

So by "ate" you mean "will eat in the possible indeterminate future-past".

Jo

Now I want to respond to every thread with *sigh*. I need rehab.

Shweta
04-02-2008, 05:49 PM
You need rehab? I've been avoiding apostrophes, adding random commas, punctuating with multiple ! and ?s and smileys, and misspelling you're and their.

I'll swap my rehab needs with yours :)

Serenity
04-02-2008, 06:07 PM
My eyes are still bleeding... where's the rehab for that??? HUH???? :D

All I want to know is who was D.R. Agony and Medusaoblongata. Iím at work and I HAVE to know, so someone fill me in PLEEAAASSE!!!

Shweta
04-02-2008, 06:17 PM
I was D.R.Agony.

Serenity, didn't I send you a rep comment to "Senility" as that? Blame Susie. (Bet you've never heard that before!)
We keep joking that the House of Peace, Calm, and Serenity looks like the House of Peace, Calm, and Senility :)

Medusa was Fionah. I begged her not to go because of herself, can you believe it?

ROFLMAO!

Shweta

Yes, he's fake-banned :)
That got me several times yesterday.

:Wha: My user name was changed????? Wow, how unobservant of me. But yeah, you did rep me. LOL.

Oh, never mind. I see in the comment now. Silly old me. That'll teach me to post with an impending migraine.

There was some alcoholic beverage left over last night? You slackers...I would have never let that happen...

Now I want to respond to every thread with *sigh*. I need rehab.
Don't do it, they'll charge you $25,000 for a hardback book you can buy new for $7, and then send you to church basements where you can't breathe because of the cigarrette smoke. Don't ask how I know...

I was D.R.Agony.
...
Uh huh. D.r.agon-y. I knew it was a dragon fan.

But in some other thread where you admit that, didn't you say to didn't break any rules? I thought there was a rule about not signing on with an extra or "sockpuppet" ID, or do Modulators not have to follow that rule...

Why is BFT banned? Did I miss something?

BFT has a "very special" ban (looks like he's right behind the Ate Ball) in which you can still leave him rep points.:)

Er, um.
:Huh:
Well.
All I know is that it was okay for yesterday, as part of the festivities. I think Modulators aren't supposed to do it normally, but I don't actually have the foggiest.

Maybe almost everyone here is actually Mac :D
