OMG!!!!111!seventy-eleven!!#!#!~

I can't believe I looked at that picture. I suddenly now want to turn into teh gay!

On a seriouser note: I have some friends that would consider that picture unacceptable. They were stuff like this at the beach:

Except they wear pants that go all the way to the ankle because they consider showing any skin as a horrid sin.

Oh excellent. I've just had to wait ten minutes to reply to this while I compose myself.

I have just sent the link to one of my colleagues who I can now hear giggling to herself in the background.

Ya, all I get are pop-up ads for screen savers or e-mail icons. If I don't get the cheap trashy half dressed women videos next time I visit the site, I'll unsubscribe and make sure the people that I have sent to your site boycott it too.

Ta ra 'wan,

Comment: I find it a bit distateful to say the least to see the ad for Network Solutions refer to "cutting through the 'crap'" That is a vulgar four letter word to me, and I am surprised that you allowed it in your ad.

Hopefully in the normal way - if you are a bit retentive I can recommend some laxatives.

Comment: You write on a new article regarding the KKK & Obama:

'However, the "British newspaper" that originated the above-quoted article
is the Daily Squib, which describes itself as "a
satirical publication [that] should therefore not be taken too fu**ing
seriously."'

Really, was the second to last word necessary? Good Lord.

The last paragraph of your explanation of this leaves no doubt you are
using the four letter F word, but you leave out a couple of letters.

Clean it up or I will presume you really are all leftwing lunatics writing
this garbage!

So is it the leftwinger-ness or the lunacy that is making snopes curse? I just want to know whether when I hear someone swear I should assume they are politically liberal or generally crazy. Or both.

You learn something new every day.

I'm really starting to get annoyed with our society's mass psychosis, our random and baseless dogmatic taboo against the word ****. I mean, seriously, it's just a word. ****ing get over it already. some people act like it's water and they're the wicked witch. what kind of superstitious mysticism do they embrace wherein one word could magically harbour more offensive power than another? That sarah silverman song would have been pretty ****ing hilarious if not for all the idiotic puritanical beeping.

The complaints are even lamer because the wording wasn't our choice -- it's a disclaimer reproduced verbatim (including the asterisked letters) as stated on the main page of the originating site.
