So lets talk about something we aren't supposed to talk about and then make up words so we can talk about it without actually saying what we aren't supposed to say. "duckspeaking"? "doublepluspiritful"? Kewl. Quack quack.

Unfortunately, the made up words have nothing to do with what it is you aren't supposed to talk about, and it is made explicitly clear what you are not supposed to reveal, and so what is the point? To see who can make up the wierdest new euphemism for something that doesn't require a euphemism?

Instead, Ronan throws out an obscure reference to some Brit humor, which then has to be explicitly explained and one guy backs up the dump truck of bad experiences and unloads, only to be severly edited. Nice. Where's the cool new euphemisms? Where's the uplifting content? Oh, great, Ben Spackman once again posted another link to his Temple web page.

Hilarious, Snarker. Ben sure does love to spread that link around.

Hey, you got a better one? grrrr... (grin)

Besides, I figure if a co-blogger still hadn't seen it after a year, it's still worth publicizing.

"42" is obscure? Man I guess I should stop hanging out with geeky internet people.
