As predicted, someone did indeed come to the defense of the tipple and fortunately it was Don and katlaughing whose opinions I respect, if not necessarily agree. And...sure enough, truth becomes stranger than fiction as Rick's armadillo line turns into reality. I think Don is a Pat Sky fan and so he'll understand that "Reality is Bad Enough, Why Should I Tell the Truth?"
And kat ... I did check out your other thread, but I gotta' tell you, and I apologize for my bigoted opinion, but I really don't care for any of this stuff. But the beauty of it is that I don't have to, and I'm glad you do...but thanks for the education!!! Seriously. There is always something for a thought, an education, a laugh, or a cry here at Mudcat!!!
