"It is impossible to speak in such a way that you cannot be misunderstood." -- Karl Popper N.B.: Comments are moderated and may not appear immediately. Comments that exceed the obscenity or stupidity limits will be either edited or expunged.

There is a whole genre of two-sentence horror stories. For example:

"My father died peacefully in his sleep. But his passengers were screaming."

This will ruin your sleep: "I was home along when the phone rang. It was my employer, telling me that the company health plan was going on the Obamacare exchange."

The knock on the door -- that of a WOMAN and her 327 lusty female friends. Let the geneticists be concerned about the progeny.
