Or the skeleton of the Irish elk, if that's what they're into.

TwelveTwo! My old nemesis! Fancy running into you here..

Fancy, indeed! Coincidence? I think not, this is the work of planning and schemes. I am onto you. Your evil ways will be ending soon enough!

Why do I always have to be the evil one? :(

'Cause you have killer in your name, and I'm a lovable rascal.

Say, thirteen and TwelveTwo -

Kinda off-topic, but I figure you guys would know... Why were five and six afraid of seven?

Hey, Atreides. Seeing as nothing seems to be happening here I'm guessing from your handle that you might be interested in this.

I have successfully reproduced this effect on my porch.

Is this an inside joke or a pop culture reference that I don't understand?

If it's an inside joke I say ye should all be banned.

To hell with that, it's thirteen they should be worried about!

Why were five and six afraid of seven?

After Six cheated on Seven with Five, Seven has become increasingly more violent. Five is currently looking into filing a restraining order against Seven due to recent death threats left on the answering machine.
