Well, so does "dandelion", but I don't generally say don-duh-LEE-on.

I've been wondering that meself. I hate to think it but I hope it has nothing to do with the war. It was around that time we stopped hearing from him.

Perry is a language ninja. When he has time on his hands he appears, seemingly out of nowhere, throwing puns like shuriken. Then he melts back into the shadows. Until next time...

(Drop him a PM and you'll probably hear back from him next time he's lurking.)

PW was captured by houris and transported to the Jannah Motel somewhere on the Sunni side of the street. No, wait......

Anyway, what's wrong with the French? On second thoughts, forget I asked. :D

Awww, the poor French. They lost their Tour de France to an American for the 8th time, this time to a man riding with an arthritic hip so bad that he needs to have it replaced, but he delayed having it done so he could enter this year's race.

There's always next year . . . :wink:

The way it's gone for the French these last eight years, I wouldn't be surprised at all!
