They give large fines for double parping in our area.


I hate the new Capcha post-filter. Boo! Hiss!

Note to the blog tech people: When I try to include a hyperlink, the system seems to hang.

I've had the same problem PirateBoy. There is nothing worse than being stuck in an elevator with someone who is parping.

Does that make scofflaws parpetrators.

Parpus Flatulatus: A rather disgusting bug that lives in elevators and by latching on to the brain stems of unsuspecting riders, causes them to give each other dirty looks when it parps.

It is evil and must be destroyed.

Here's the linky about the "parp" from Hyperbole and a Half without any of the HTML embedded links:


NurseCindy, I thought you were going to say it was worse being trapped on an elevator with someone who is hanging (No, you perverts, I meant with a rope!)

Reason? No noose is good noose.

"Parping" is merely making a honking sound. Although annoying to most folks at most times, it is a relatively innocuous and inegregious offense. Farting and burping are far more intrusive, as they often involve odors.

You're supposed to slurp your noodles in Japan. Obviously La Toba should never go to Japan.

Bravo to the Mayor.
Myself, I make it a point of pride never to toot in a closed space or in public UNLESS there is a significant source of noise nearby.
This, of course, makes it awkward when that engine quits suddenly.

Does the ban apply to the Aflac goose? Equal silence under law, or law doesn't mean anything, I say!

They left out gerbil felching.
