...and it all becomes clear.

Incidentally, who the heck told the Renaissance painters that cherubim were little chubby hover-babies? If memory serves, cherubim were the ones stationed outside Eden to ensure that no one, ever, gets in. When I try to picture what those things might be like in person, I go a little pale. I picture something akin to Balrog-thulu, but more shinier.

And "chubby hover-babies" aren't scary?! :shock:

Plus, they are above you and they aren't wearing diapers!

I like this. I've tried - and failed - to understand it.
But still, I like it.
I ran it by some strangers at a bar, and several got it. But the, let's call them, "Salvationly challenged" didn't always get the references. So, I guess I must 'splain it after all.

The Snake, Adam, and Eve were not the only residents of Eden. But after one bad snack choice, the Big Guy™ took his ball and went home. everybody suffered, not just the perps.
Ah-ha! Thank you!

While there may be some who would consider me salvation-challenged, it is not because of a lack of familiarity with the Christian bible.

It was the walrus that threw me. I was thinking Ringo, or a software company that makes apps for apple products. Then I was thinking the bad apples were political candidates.

I think my problem was too much thinking;-)

Meh, I'm a dad. Poo holds no terror for me.

Though the situation you propose does make me wonder what they might be eating - a question with biological, theological, and possibly entomological ramifications.

After further thought, I thought "I think thinking my way through this needs to be rethought."
So I rethought. "I think thinking my way through this needs to be rethought."

What a joke that was. She can't even guess the right card.
For the win! Congrats!

We'd tried automated presses for our foil but they couldn't hear any commands.

Conventional introduction insufficient. Conformation lends confirmation. Cranial covering removed. Bow, smile.

Subcutaneous bulges left him nauseous, but excited as wishes made appeared ready to be fulfilled. Flight would be his.

Thursday was a dream come true for Arthur. Unfortunately for him it was that one where you find yourself naked in school.

But I always dreamed that the girls were naked too. (Fortunately, I never encounter the lunch lady in such dreams.)

My oatmeal was looking at me funny. It had this snarky look in its.. oats. Somehow I knew it was yelling “Eat me, asshole!”

Tech Support Vocabulary, Lesson 13

Post by Algernon Sydney is Dead » Wed Nov 21, 2012 3:20 pm

Say "MS" as either "Mess" or "Miss" based on context. So, it's "Mess Word" and "Mess Windows", but I don't "Miss Access".

In the mirror I see my lips dissolve, teeth and tongue liquifying painfully. Mental note: no more off-brand mouthwash.
