Subject: Danger: Irony & Humour - Ignore this thread!

Click for the 'PermaThreadô: List of all joke threads'

Upon looking at some of my postings in the "religious Knockers", and "Guns-R-Us" threads I fear I have been somewhat rude to Hank, Tucker and Fayduk. If not actually rude, at least a mite sarcastic - and for that I apologise. It occurred to me that others may also at times reach that point where they feel that rational argument has become hopless in certain quarters, and just lose control momentarily. Perhaps this thread can help -or maybe it'll disappear faster than a plate of brownies.
All I ask is that we vent with humour alone! Maybe a bit of sardonic wit, or an ironic aside. Perhaps a song parody, stuff like that. Nothing personal, no name calling, just humour and irony. Something to blow off steam. Use it for any thread that has you flummoxed, ie. some "traddie" has just told you that your hero, Bob Dylan can't play guitar and chew gum at the same time! Don't get mad. Don't even get even! Come here and get funny! I personally am in the process of preparing an editorial for all those liberals entitled: "As long as the Red White and Red flies over Canada, you'll never take my guitars away!" I just drove back from a concert in Rochester and I'm too tired to write it now.(jokes take an alert mind)

P.S. I actually found about 90% of the gun threads to be interesting and damn thought provoking, and I'm glad folks feel comfortable enough around here to be so candid with such a difficult issue. So saying, I hope that's the last serious thing that gets said here
