    I tend to point out when you guys make the twelve-year-old-mentality posts. Eventually (but not yet), they will drive me from the site.

    @John Peabody: I’m not a fan of the ‘everything is a dick joke’ style of humor, either. But it’s pretty rare for this site, and this was also making fun of grammar which is almost always a winner for me.

    Plus, the fact that it was on the phone reminded me of a Prince song.

    Glad I didn’t have a mouthful of coffee when I saw this. Such a minx, that Kathleen.

    Would this not be a advertisement for the oft derided English degree rather then STEM?

    @Rick DeMent: I was joking about the implied perquisites of being an aviation expert.

    I rather like the Grammar book, Eats Shoots and Leaves … which is a good way to remember those pesky commas …

    I hope I never reach the point where I take myself so seriously that I don’t appreciate a good dick joke. It seems like a miserable existence.
