    Re: In my own words: Me

    BernieM just called me and asked me to advise those who don't like his posts to simply not read them. He really does not understand why some of you are so bitter and humorless that you are actually offended by his posts.

    He then mumbled something about snack time and hung up.

    Re: In my own words: Me

    So because some people don't find them funny, they are now bitter and humorless? Pathetic. They aren't funny, but that wasn't my point. My point is you put them in Ram Talk and it's lounge talk at best, and if I hadn't posted about it in this thread 3 times it wouldn't have been moved either.
    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    No, I think BernieM's point was that you are bitter and humorless if, merely because you don't find something funny, you feel the need to openly complain about the joke.

    Pathetic. They aren't funny, but that wasn't my point.
    Eye of the beholder, my friend.

    Here's some irony for you... I only deleted one of your "stage direction" posts. I guess that means that I wasn't the only one who thought that your commentary didn't belong in this obviously light-hearted thread. That's what PMs are for.

    I don't understand why everyone is acting like my original post was a joke. You're hurting my feelings!

    I'm still trying to figure out why Bernie has a picture of Sally Struthers for an avatar.

    That's alright, I'm comfortable with my manhood to the point I can show some love to another male without getting excited about it.

    LOL
