So Firefox is DC's governing authority. Sounds to me like Firefox is Anglophobic. It probably calls fried potatoes Freedom Chips.

I DO have a Greasemonkey script for that. It basically replaces instances of "French" with: "Frog", "Freedom", or "Cheese-eating, surrender monkeys". But I wasn't going to bring it up.

Firefox is not Anglophobic. I fancy that, like me, it is rather the opposite -- except that we recognize that while the English might have sketched an okay outline for the bizarre hodgepodge that is English, the language was <strike>perfected</strike> improved by good old Yankee ingenuity.

And, I -- for one -- welcome our Firefox, governing-authority overlords! :D

I think the Aussies and Canadians might object to being overlooked, and might make the same claim.

By the way, I wonder if we'll have the same effect on Spanish?

I've been trying to write a twabble every morning. Get the juices flowing. My brain hurts though and trepany is awesome.

That was actually 100char... but not really the twabble I was thinking of... How about this one?

I believe the government should sponsor snuff porn. Who wouldn't pay to see politicians getting what's coming to them?

I used to think I just had to grow old gracefully. That is, until I found my Mobius calendar. Now I don’t age. I just do laps.

The Mysterious Mobius Strip. The only one-sided figure in existence. Great trick for the kids. It's impossible daddy!

This twabble thing is kind of fun...
