Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Well, well, well. Still at it, eh? And people say that I don't know when to quit! You know, my friends, sheer tenacity can be a real virtue...when it is applied to what could be termed...a useful project. A good idea. A gift to the world. That sort of thing.

This thread...(cough, cough)...does not qualify as any of those. Nope. Sorry. In the race of life this thread staggers in desperately near to the end of the pack, alongside a lame turtle and a guy in a wheelchair who is trying to get his picture on the cover of "People Magazine". Not that I'm against such things. No indeed. I will always give moral support to those who struggle to overcome innate disadvantages such as a disability, a lack of education, or plain old sheer stupidity. Such people also stand and serve. They may not serve terribly well...but they serve.

Which reminds me, my daughter won the tennis meet in Huntsville, Alabama last Saturday. She can really serve. There are good genes in that girl, let me tell you. You can see her on my website. Just look it up.

Anyway, I was sort of hoping that a little word or two from me would be enough to convince all you folks of the futility of pushing this whole Mother of All BS nonsense any further...but I'm not going to bet the farm on it. Oh...no...I'm not that foolish. I wasn't born last Wednesday.

I figure that you will pay no attention to my good advice, and you will persist in this...exercise...in complete asininity. "Asininity". Now there's a word for you. I like the ring of that. I'm going to have to see if they can work it into an episode of "Boston Legal". That's my new show, as you of course must know. Be sure to watch it. It's great.

So, here's a smile and a wink from your Captain, the guy who steps down every now and then from his busy life to give you a little encouragement and advice along the way...the guy who isn't too proud to get down and chew the fat with the locals...the guy who is proud to be both Canadian AND a resident of the USA...your pal...your guiding light on the path of life.

Think large, breathe deep, and have a coke on me. You people are great. I love you. And I say that from the bottom of my heart...if not my pocketbook. The tear in my eye is not a fake one. Oh no, not me. I live the parts I play.
