Erick: Yay for you, you've already established that you're a martial genious
Seriously Chris, That might be been some of the funniest stuff I have read, ever.
I owe you a dollar for that. In our dojo, that is the price for a high quality techique or a makimono in sarcasm ryu.
Well, there are better wits than me, surely ..
"Think twice before you speak, and then you may be able to say something more insulting than if you spoke right out at once."
"He who wishes to exert a useful influence must be careful to insult nothing. Let him not be troubled by what seems absurd, but concentrate his energies to the creation of what is good. He must not demolish, but build."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"Popularity is the one insult I have never suffered."
Merry Christmas -- all the same!
