If there's no such word as fourfooted then you can spell it however you want! (actually I'm sure it does exist... I'd have hyphenated it myself (four-footed) or written it as 2 words rather than one, but really, who gives a hoot?!

So your reasoning is that since there's no month called Floopuary it doesn't matter if we spell it Flupeuary?

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Both of my last two posts in this thread are references to a somewhat obscure recording in the style of old radio theater, by a group called The Firesign Theater. The LP "Don't Crush..." has several skits, including one about buying a used car, where the radio in the car is turned on and the hosts of the show have the exchange about Koonagonda. Anyone who already knew this is probably almost as whacko as I am.

The original post was a silly thing anyway. Admittedly this person was able to hold a conversation and could almost spell (even if they did have an odd understanding of where English came from :lol: ) but it was still a silly thing.

I preferred Moe Sunkist, that was amusing levels of ignorance. He thought that the Irish converted to Catholicism to 'spite the English' :confused:

Well, as Moe only made 14 posts, it is pretty easy to read them all for a giggle!

This thread really has taken a 180 from it's original topic, but i figure "What the heck?" Still fun to watch them fall apart!!

I missed out on the pentecostal manifestation of Moe SK the Sun Kissed Sunshine Kid when he unexpectedly deigned to descend upon us from his lofty intellectual eyrie in the clouds of Christianland. The guy was evidently totally off his rocker (and totally ungrammatical to boot)!
This post of his is a gem (my comments and his mistakes and choice wierdnesses in bold):
Sunshine Moe wrote: As for the issue of hypocrisy i have this to say: Jesus Christ, a man that can be proven exists as much as any other man back in the day, was crucified. And during his life, He spent it believing He was the Son of the heavenly God, and performed miracles in His name. (what the frig has that got to do with hypocrisy !?) This lead me to three choices.
1.) He is a crazy man who didnt know anything and was probly dropped on His head as a babe. Looks like Moe isn't as daft as he seems! :haha:
2.) He is a liar who wanted to become famous fro being the King of the Jews.
3.) He was the Messiah, the Son of God, the Redeemer of Man.
I cannot believe the first to be true, because of the miracles professed by those around Him, and that He would inspire so many to follow in His footsteps to death 2000 years later. Oppps! Looks like I spoke too soon! :haha:
The second could very well be plausible, except for [b](Uh oh! here it comes! Hang on to your hats!.....) why [/b]would this man go through the most humiliating and painful death. Would He really be willing to go that far to be famous? You cant be receive that type of fame and recognition if you are dead. Oh and not once did he claim to be lying upon the cross. :confused:
So that leaves door number three. This to me was a big help in understanding my faith when i was struggling. I can see where everyone gets there point across, on how it takes the same amount of faith to believe in a flying blob of noodles, but is it really. :confused: Most things i have read on here have been jokes, jokes on God and Jesus, jokes on even your FSM. So much for your faith.
God bless. I love you, and in Jesus's perfect name i pray for you,
your humble servant Moe.

WOW! Talk about non-sequiturs! I guess we need these freaks coming on here to remind us of why we arent Christians stumbling desperately in the intellectual outer darkness and confusion, clutching at the straws of dogmatic certainties and kidding ourselves that we've discovered some kind of cosmic truth! Poor misguided lambs... I feel tenderly sorry for them in their pathetic pretence of sincerity and professions of universal love... ahhhh! :cutely simpering FSM emote:
May the great FSM gently open their eyes and lead them with his softly billowing tentacles towards His shining truth!

Actually I think "humble servant" Moe's wierdness is a perfectly logical compliment to the ravings of Swickstrum... they are both very much part of a long and rather sad tradition of benighted religious mental deviation and the road to hell being paved with good intentions!
