khatspaugh-- Your unfettered wit shows you're a winner who knows his place. As a mudder you give no quarter when it comes to puns. You're a real stud who always pulls his weight, and most of the time I must admit your humor is right on track.
However, I worry that if you keep lunging at the off side of these jokes, the folks in philly may not like the tack you're taking and your reputation will suffer. This could cost you dearly, you could end up in hock, get depressed and just foal apart. I would hate to see that happen.
Though it's clear you don't need anyone's help to kick up your heels, I humbly offer my support with puns (and I'm not just saying that to curry your favor). Draw nigh, catspaw- we'd make a great team! Don't stall, though, hurry and respond because my offer won't last furlong...
