I've had all I can stands and I can't stands no more! Where's the nearest recruiting station?

This pancake aggression will not stand!

BTW, this phrase will be with me all day:
E. coli symptoms include diarrhea or bloody diarrhea and severe abdominal cramps.

Oh, and "bloody diarrhea" doesn't sound so bad if you say it with a British accent...

Who tailgates with pancakes? We drink beer and grill pork products.

The cases stem from a pancake tailgate event

Forgive me for asking but what the hell is a pancake tailgate event?

And why did 26 badgers get food poisoning from eating pancakes?

Yet another entry in the New Mefi tagline State Lotto:

This just in: U2 to stage inspirational rendition of "With or Without Syrup" to benefit the fallen pancakes. Bono to grimace convincingly during performance to approximate sincerity.

Leather vests will be worn to show solidarity.

I like pancake benefit songs. Do you like pancake benefit songs?

I have climbed the highest mountains, I have run through the fields, only to to eat pancakes.

But I still haven't eaten what I've wanted to.

somehow i just can't make "we are the international house of pancakes" fit into the tune of "we are the world." where is the king of pop when u need him?

I begged Bucky Badger to stop hurling his feces in the parking lot. I begged him.

And so she woke up
from where she was lying still
Saying we got to do something about these dry pancakes.

Try it with maple
Try it with berries
Maybe try it with lemon and some sugar

Singing Ha La La La De Day
Singing Ha La La La De Day

Sweet the topping
But bitter the flapjack in my mouth
I see seven syrups
But I only see one way out
You got to coat them with butter
Douse them in jelly
Eat without raising your fork, you know
I took the syrup, from the syrup stream,
Then I floated out of here

Kafkaesque, will you marry me?

egad ... you mean that now it might not (gasp) validate?

(oops nor did mine ;)

I am forbidden by law to marry any more flightless meat animals, after a rather ugly scene with a Peahen some years back. Unless, of course, we could sail to international waters.

Then, all bets are off, baby.

Just as a postscript here, I actually went out and bought a used copy of Joshua Tree at lunch, just because that song was stuck in my head. Just wanted to reassure everyone that U2 won't be going hungry tonight.

Curiously, I have bought that CD twice before, and lost it/had it stolen both times. This third buy will either prove or disprove the theorem that The Joshua Tree represents a sort of wormhole into a universe almost like our own but without so much ego.

Trying again
posted by nprigoda at 6:21 AM on October 22, 2001

Okay, sorry. It worked that time. I was trying to fix the extra "close italics", which was making everything left justified, tiny type.
I was wondering what the heck Miguel was talking about when he mentioned the "psychadelic thread". On my screen (Mac OS , Netscape 4.73) there was no change after my attempted "fix".
Now it looks better. Sorry again!

Sorry, I meant to say "Mac OS 9"
