That's fine, Tim, but we're only doing the Morning Traffic Report. Actually, gailr is doing most of the work. I get to go "brrmm brrmm" in the background when she says, "...traffic is heavy on the Beltway..."

Episode: a specific period of mania or depression.
Not sure which one best describes the Morning Traffic Report.

May I contribute to the fullest of my talent/ability? I can beat my chest to sound like the traffic helicopter.

Hear, hear, I third the motion!

BTW: Bailey--about your being funny--(cut to Huny with her hands on her hips and tap-tap-tapping her foot and arching a brow at you)

Huny- the one who worships Bailey's style of funny humor. :wink:

There's room in the control booth for both you and Bailey. (You will need to provide your own headphones.)

bnjtokyo: you asked a good question; please follow up on this thread when you get more feedback.

Hell, everyone get into the booth. Don't be shy. And if no headphones was good enough for my granny, then it's good enough for me.

Hell, if there's 'nuff of usuns, we can do the "Cotton-Pickin' Agora Hayride" with Bailey on banjo and Huny on comb-and-paper. Gailr...git on them spoons, girl. Ahl scratch that washboard. Holy cricket, we got us a ho-down.

I've got a bit of an idea what names sound like in Japanese, which helps, but it's still awkward. I find that Chinese names are never reversed, and names like Donald Tsang are easy to work out.

Perhaps the best thing to do, if you know the sex of the person, is to write Dear Mr/Ms XXX YYY, and write the full name as they have written it for you.

— Ozrag.


Or how about:
Dear Mr./Ms./Mrs./Miss/It (Hey, far be it from me to define your gender and status!) XXX YYY

On a more serious vein; if the writer did not define gender and status, just write Dear however the person wrote the name in the first place.

This gets my vote as well.

And I would be honored to join the Morning Traffic Report... although too much flatulent noise from the beltway would probably be unwelcome. ;)

funniest thread I've read. Posting in hopes it will bring it to the top for everyone's enjoyment. Not to mention the original question and answers are of value.

Yep, this is a wild one. Too bad that link in the Sluggo post seems dead, it would have been fun to see what it was.

As to the original question, I agree that Dear however you signed your name is the solution. At least that's what I would do.

The "first prime" poster is still with us, on occasion, but all the others seem to have fallen by the wayside. Such a shame, they were a great bunch.
