Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Amos, I didn't know that anyone had ever actually swanned. All the swanner's I've ever known (and my maternal grandmother was a swanner of great renown) have always said, "I'll swan". That puts the actual act of swanning at some unspecified point in the future. They are saying that they will swan, but not naming the time at which this swanning will take place. I always sort of assumed that when one got to Heaven St. Peter would pull out a book that listed the number of times one had said, "I'll swan," and one had to, then, swan that many times before being allowed through the gates.
Only on The Mother of All BS Threads could anyone get away with posting such drivel without being threatened by angry mobs.
