And potential sin of the decade.

Talk about playing with fire!

Don't stand to close to this guy.

I would imagine the Pope's position on cybersquating would be the, well, the squatting position, of course. I mean, he's not gonna cybersquat while lying down is he?

casey...not with his bad back, anyway.

Immediately, she regretted her choice of words.

So in addition to being the head of the Catholic church, the Pope is also God's Rottweiler?

It begs the question: how big is his johnson?

Naturally, he has also received some emails from the faithful accusing him of sinful internet activity.

Geez, sinful internet activity, who would have ever heard of that otherwise.

MTOW, I laughed so loud people in the office are staring.

MOTW, only his alterboy knows for sure.

*nervously awaits a lighning strike*

dude had best watch out...he could become the Catholic version of Salmon Rushdie in Poland

Knowing it probably wasn't right
A young man bought the pope's website.
He was heard to exclaim
As he shouted in pain,
"I didn't think God's Rottweiler would bite!"

Odd. I don't recall clicking "post" on the first one.

motw,

you misused the phrase "begs the question".

"begging the question" (aka petitio principii) is the logical fallacy which means one is assuming what one is trying to prove.

what you REALLY meant to say, instead, is "raises the question".

I know this because it is one of the few days that I actually showed up for philosopy class back in college.

no charge - the first one's always free.

that is all.

*stands far away from MOTW*

Petitio principii, quid pro quo, habemus papam, ipso facto.

That is all for me.

E pluribus unim, Cogito erog sum, Ooy-ay Ill-way I-fray in the air-chay.

Fax no biscuits, on your dominoes, condominium sandra dee.

petitio principii=EPIC I IN POI RIP TIT

"Sin of the decade"

You weren't trying to start a competetion or anything, were ya judi?

A couple years ago, a radio announcer was playing the march "Veni, Vidi, Vichi." He joked that it could have been "Veni, Vidi, Veggie" = "I came, I saw, I ate a salad." (Caesar, of course)

He was peppered by listeners that in Latin, the V is pronounced as a W, so it would have been "Weni, Widi, Wicky", which didn't sound like Noble Caesar. I e-mailed him that he should carry that logic a bit farther to include his joke "Weni, Widi, Wedgie" = "I came, I saw, I hitched up my toga."

Geeze this guy has alot of nerve...Some papal have no respect..

OTW-May

*snork* and *spew*

Petitio principii, quid pro quo, habemus papam, ipso facto.

And may I add:

ab initio

In some states, committing a local fellacy is illegal.

clearly, Motw has not commited a Mistake of Identity but a Mistake of Attribute, making his modus operandi de Humour avoidable, but not void.

back me up El...

No, it's just that MOTW's comment isn't logically fallic.

Wow, where did this huge handbasket come from? Wonder where it's going . . .

MKJ,
I think you just bagged the question.

clearly, Motw has not commited a Mistake of Identity but a Mistake of Attribute, making his modus operandi de Humour avoidable, but not void.

Of course, bangi,
and
Res Ipsa Loquitor

Or, via Monty Python, maybe it was supposed to be Reni, Ridi, Retchie: "I came, I saw, I threw up."

OK, so it doesn't really work...so?

Isn't MOTW a she ???


Just sayin' ...

what an absolute twat!

oops... yes MOTW is a she, but she's funny and smart and therefore I wish she were a man.
freudian slip.

and El :
no i have not been drinking! Liquitor indeed!
(*hic*)

"In fact, "begs the question" would mean "asks for the question" if it was understood literally."
... but when are legal terms to be taken literally ???

*looking around the thread*

So umm... who's begby callin' a twat ????

And Bangi - thts ok - we still luv u! I was jst hping tht I wsnt wrng!!! ;)

the law of non-contradiction states that it is not possible that I be BOTH "your friendly logic counselor" and NOT "your friendly logic counselor" at the same time and in the same context.

ergo, I choose to remain "your friendly logic counselor" for the forseeable future, or at least until this thread is bumped.

that is all.

Just, how do you expect people to understand what you are saying if you keep leaving out the vowels?
sigh
*shakes head*

teehee ;)
(((Just)))

"Any decisions regarding the future of this domain will be routed through my devout Catholic grandmother."

hehe, i like this guy. what a way to get your 15 mins of fame.

I OBJECT!!
( to being confused by the friendly legal counselor)

Jü§†®,

I think begby must have been making a self-reference. (Hisself, not myself.)

MOTW - you thoughts betray you. You must have a "johnson fixation".

From Rome comes the John Paul-succeder
To the chair of the throne of St. Peter
It took a few days
To name "Benoit Seize"
(His English name ruins the meter.)

Hey insom -

I think you should put together a collection of all your linericks (not anagrams!) and
self-publish!
I could be your agent! There could be $$$$ in this!

You do save them, don't you???

I think she meant 'limericks'.

*ducks*

THAT'S IT!!!!!

I'm through!

D'Artagnan, don't EVER post after me AGAIN, do you hear!!!!!!

*rolls bowling ball and gets him in the shins*

Hooray for ME!!

*reads 3 times to check for spelling errors*

Hey friendly counselor,as the resident pompus prig around here, may I offer an observation?

It seems to me that you violated the law of non-contradiction. MOTW is a hero of the people and thus needs no friendly correction.

We take our chaos very seriously around here y'know.

hic et ubique?

(D'art' -- or ... fellating a local?)

Illegitimati non carborundum
