I think that he is a little distracted at the moment. (What do you say that we all chip in and buy him a blender or a toaster?) smile.gif

Surely a boiled egg maker would be more appropriate in this case?

Great idea if he could get it to work but I see a lot of problems in it that need to be ironed out first. At least in the end he didn't end up with egg on his face! biggrin.gif

Ottava is just too cranky for Wikipedia. He is best off writing for a more worthy publication, imo.

Or a coffee-pot. laugh.gif


Whatever we do, it is only fitting if we rely on a collaborative approach. Also, someone needs to vandalize the item.



My only suggestion is not to give the new couple a frying pan. It could come back to haunt them.

(The scene: The CoolHandLuke home, sometime in the near future. )

Luke: (Coming through the front door after a long day's work): Woman, where's my dinner?

Mrs. Luke: (Indignant) What do I look like, the maid? (Takes frying pan and whacks Luke on the head)

Luke: (Wobbling around, nursing his skull) Ooooo, my head! You're a mean mama!


Needless to say, I don't want the WR crowd to be even vaguely responsible for supplying the props for such a scenario! unsure.gif

I didn't ask anyone on the list, but they were people who had mostly neutral interactions with me (or voted to ban me) with a slant towards content editors who would know how to handle my interactions when dealing with content.

I say this wedding is a hoax until we see pictures of Meredith. Is she hotter than Mrs. Chip?

I may have an identification, a young lady who is like CHL apparently a chipmunk.

Well, Frank is obviously reading this discussion -- he quoted it on Ottava's WP talk page. Let's ask him directly to post some photographs. smile.gif

Actually, the ED profile of you is fairly sympathetic -- all things considered. ermm.gif

The first such dialogue will take its inspiration from Galileo and Pope Urban. It will be called "A Dialogue on El Jefe's World System."


You should check out the 1974 film "Galileo" starring Topol (of all people) as the famed astronomer. rolleyes.gif

By the way...whatever happened with Ottava's letter to Arbcom? He is any closer to rejoining the mothership? ermm.gif

I don't drink, have a fairly good memory, and sleep about 18 hours a day, so I have pruned the thread of silliness and general retardation, moving the posts in question to this thread (requires registration and a fair amount of incredulity to view).
