A full helping, and certainly mooving! And despair not, Sparteye - RC obviously is staggering under the load of a parcel (there is no more charitable explanation

Geoff, it took me a second reading to get this one! Two points, my friend.
Have your cake and edict, too...
Rhuby, come on now, stop it, you guys and Sparteye (she said feeling smug that she correctly discerned Sparteye's gender without being told)--you-all're givin' me a
tummy-ache from making me laugh so hard. S&M ads! Ohhh...

Hey, now, Jackie! I saw "Sparteye", and I immediately thought "Hawkeye" from M*A*S*H! You can't blame me for having been raised in the sitcom generation!
Upon further reflection, it's kind of a cross between Hawkeye and Spartacus. Now do you understand my confusion?

Regarding the Shaggy Sheep Story heading, I'm wondering if I'm the only one here who appreciated Jazzoctopus' name for his character in his "Let's Write a Story" thread? Gunther Nilpferd= Gunther No horse. He saddled his sheep, as a consequence. Ursala Ovisrender= Ursala tearer apart of sheep. His story didn't develop allegorically, as these names suggested it should have. Might we have another go at it?

Hmmm. . . was I supposed to notice that? The only creativity I was intending to use in his name was Nilpferd, which is Hippopotamus in German.

I ignored the "nile-horse" of the literal German and saw "nil," as in none, and horse. Oh, well, silly me! Of course, a hippo riging a sheep does conjure quite a mental image!

"Perish the thought that I should go into a subject that's already long in the tooth...", she started her post. Fiberbabe had grown to really enjoy posting to the board, and while it may have been a subject discussed previously, she truly wanted to hear the opinions of her educated & thoughtful new community.
Unfortunately, the subject on which she posted had been discussed and discussed and discussed until everyone was positively nauseated by it. Some collective unconscious took over the larger group and they all shunned her. No one would post a response to her new thread, and flame emails came to her private message box by the score.
That did not dissuade her, however; she returned to the thread at least once a day to edit and recraft her thoughts on the topic. She tended the unfollowed thread like a garden, with a devotion that rivalled the mother/child bond.
And it was due to this that she became known on the board as the Owner of a Lonely YART.

Thanks, Fiberbabe, fo giving me this. It sounds so much more likely than the version to which I have heretofore clung, which concerned (to cut a very long story to its minimalist extremes) an Outer Mongolian with unattractive personal habits allied to extreme halitosis, who became the Owner of a Lonely Yurt.

This one lacks the majesty of many of the other contributions, but given its link (in the non-URL sense) to another thread, I felt I had to share it:
It is well known that Mahatma Gandhi walked barefoot everywhere, to the point that his feet became quite thick and hard. He also was quite a spiritual person, frequently engaged in prayer, meditation and inner seeking. In addition, even when he was not on a hunger strike, he did not eat much and became quite thin and frail. Furthermore, he paid little mind to what little he did eat and, due to this haphazard diet, he wound up with very bad breath.
Thus, he came to be a super calloused fragile mystic plagued with halitosis.
