Okay, off the top of my head...

"This makes my pants feel funny"

"Gee and I thought this was the ER forum, not Penthouse Forum!"

"I had several comments to this, but they all violated the new forum posting rules"

"Doesnt this violate the new forum posting rules?"

"Is the cute but silent driver involved with these...umm...'activities'?"

"Hey, is this one of those new revenue generating opportunities?"

"Click on the adsense ad at the bottom of the page to hear more!"

""

"(cough)"

"Is there any raspberry jam or whipped cream involved with this?"

"I think I saw something like this on tv once..."

Oh great, I make one side comment about Janet's post sounding like a line from "Dear Hustler, I never thought it would happen to me..." and I get outed!

I'll take your word for it.

Hmm... not sure how you got confused, but I had in mind single malts and Jethro Tull rather than battery operated devices. Step away from the gutter.

Me too. I figure the new posting rules just mean that a somewhat drier commentary style is needed. Elevate the banter high enough and the mods may not even notice it.... (sorry mods).
Rise to the occasion.


Quote:
"Doesn't this violate the new forum posting rules?"
Not sure - waay to oblique.. but I could check with the mods?

Let's keep Rudolpho out of the conversation - he may ask for a raise and I'm not sure I can afford 2 boxes of Twinkies AND a latte.


Quote:
"Hey, is this one of those new revenue generating opportunities?"
Keep me posted - I want 20% (intellectual prop rights....)


Quote:
"Click on the adsense ad at the bottom of the page to hear more!"
No!

I charge for that.


Quote:
"Is there any raspberry jam or whipped cream involved with this?"
No - see above.
And... the hotel might charge a cleaning fee. Ever read the small print on the back of the check in card?.

Who has time to watch TV with all this other fun stuff to do?

I use trip-adviser before I book a room. I really read the reviews form people who have stayed at the hotel I am considering and look at the candid pictures they post. It helps a lot. I find the reviews to be dead on.
