      🙂 I snickered at that. In a household of boys, however, I think I get exposed to too many phrases like ‘poop his pants.’ 😉

    Are you trying to turn me on? You’re going to have to do better than that because we’re more than pretty faces.

      I counted yours as an entry, by the way, though I knew it probably wasn’t. The resemblance is too close!

      These were three excellent entries! I seriously considered your ‘tamper resistant’ one as winner before reading masercot’s!

    Go to “42 words #4” and in the comments post a number between 1 and 42 but not the number 4 because that is done…

    Apparently this is a new service from the Supermarkets. Its sockets so you can charge up your robotic limbs. But it’s expensive, they charge an arm and a leg for it.
