nice bit of infotainment, lucky for me lunch was 6 hours ago and now dinner is in an hours time.

Hey, I'm flexible. Just eat your roughage baby.

Now that is funny. And weirdly fascinating. Parts of the list read like Polish death rock concert lists. Thanks for the smile, Settle. You do know there are English anti-acid tablets called Settles, don't you? And that, as Frasermoo pointed out, your readers span the five continents. Hell, it's cocktail time here in balmy Lisbon. Next time say "It's almost time for another meal" as this is usually true everywhere. So let's have no more of this ethnocentric shit! ;)

What does o< mean? A Jesus fish? A pouting cyclops? Insert angle here? What?

It's Settle's symbol for "this is a joke". The community made him do it.

If I'm not mistaken, 0< means "barf," with the circle representing the, and the v-shape representing the spray of vomitus. And speaking of guesses, looking at these pictures should tell you why the correct diagnosis of gastroesophogeal disorders is so tricky. It all looks like sheets of crumpled wet satin, laparoscopically.

It was entirely settle's idea. No one made him do anything.

I like the way you always tie everything into a song, settle. Even gastrointestinal distress.

Now I know where they got the idea for Mr Magoo.

Miguel, that was very "undeferential" of you. I like it!

It doesn't mean "barf"

o< is an ascii duck.

:-) involves oral sex though.

Oh, and that's from a Sam Cooke song "I'll come running back to you". I'm now off to the record store to pick up what is supposedly his best album, Night Beats.

His last words were "Lady, you shot me".

Sorry to be pedantic Miguel, but they are called Settlers.

I could only find this crappy link.

That link is so disturbing.....I think I score three from the main list? Anybody beat that?

The food in Strasbourg tastes so much better today!
