While this question has yet to be posed over at FMH, I'm sure its only a matter of time.

So far the debate has covered male vs. female angels, female demons, and I'm sure the question of the co-ed can-can dance competition is next up.

Therefore, to spare the 'naccle from another pointless exercise, I pass along the following answer:

Nowadays only four angels can dance [on the head of a pin]. Formerly there was no limit, but OSHA passed the Angel Safety Law recently, which also requires that the pin must be inspected twice each year for structural defects.
As, always, glad to be of service.

Also... angels must comply with all applicable fire and safety regulations. Seraphim, otherwise famous as "burning ones," must extinguish themselves before arrival and may not light up again until 500 feet from pinheads.

Does the seraphim rule apply to salamanders also? Or are they treated differently under the regulations? I heard the Union recently imposed a mandatory 15 minute break for every 4 hours of dancing on a pin head. Is there any truth to this rumor?

The angels were slapped with a restraining order by the pinheads rotary club of . . . oh wait, you weren't referring to PEOPLE as pinheads . . .

Regardless, I'll bet a lot of Angels dance when they read FMH, thinking of the way my kids do the happy dance when something tickles their fancy.

Actually, I was aiming at the doubled meaning, but had lost hope that anyone would pick it up.
