smiley a very sensible option, whilst running someone through you wouldn't want to risk giving them something nasty.

..... or catch something nasty!

This is a a hilarious website if you are not terribly offended by salty language ...... which seems to go hand in hand in the military (or at least used to).  What makes the stories so funny is that there is just enough truth (or typically military reasoning) to make some of them almost believable.  One of my favorites was a Marine Col. who had committed every offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  He was ultimately found "not guilty" due to a technicality, however his driver was sentenced to be executed.

Good stuff.  They might be out-onioning The Onion and out-whatever-you-call-it CBC's This is That.

"Dark Laughter is part of the problem, and you can be too. Just type "IKIS" (i.e., I Know It's Satire) at the beginning of your comment on the story, and follow it with a comment that suggests it's not satire at all."

I once had a friend who was thinking about marketing an eleven foot pole. It was intended for use with those you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
