Well, gol-danged, Tweezer. Now look whad youz done to poor ol Ron? Got hem wantin to throw der Enklish book at us and dat's bad, bad, bad.

Yo Ron: Nice thing about the Catbox is that little mousey thing and, hey, if ya' don't like someone's style, ya' just scroll on past it. As fir the few of us who mess around with the language, I'd suugest that Mark Twain wouold not have been as interesting to read if he had written in *high* English.

The stories that we tell are enhanced, at least to us, by the language. Actually, I live in West Virginia (Wes Ginny) and I have picked up a comfortable mountain dialect which suits me for certain situations. Especially when telling stories.

And its not like their a bunch of us. It's just Tweezer, Spawzer, khandu, Amos and myself so it ain't like the entire joint has been sucked into HeeHaw-dom.

Now, come on Ron. Just throw us a "shucks", 'er a "danged", 'er an "ain't" and all will be wonderful. And you'll feel this sense of freedom. Your Toyota will get better gas mileage. Your wife will start looking at you differently... ahhhh... strike that one.

Give me an "ain't", bro...
