On those rare occasions when I pun, I try to rely on the auditory effect, rather than resort to mispelling the word, which I've always regarded as the blunt instrument approach to punning. That's why I did not resort to the crudely obvious Llama.

this title deliberately left blank

I did, after all, borrow tsuwm's 'o' title for a reason.

People taking it upon themselves to try to "improve" my attempts at humour will always push my buttons.

try to "improve" my attempts at humour Ah--now I understand. I suppose I was, but only for myself: for me, the visual humor of Dalai Llama when talking about alpacas is funnier than the auditory kind. I am sorry I stepped on your toes.
Edit: also, it was foolish and thoughtless of me to assume that others might think the same way I do.

tsuwm: I don't know what a Red Card is. Enlighten me, please? Maybe by PM; judging by the tone of your post, it must be something horrible...

> I don't know what a Red Card is.

well then, what did you think that icon represents??

(In futbol red cards (or yellow cards) are 'given' to blatant (or semi-blatant) rules transgressors; I believe a red card or two yellows during a game warrants dismissal.)

what did you think that icon represents?? Someone being hauled up by the ear for committing a transgression. And I wasn't flashing it to anyone--it was intended to represent me, just as means I am delighted that we are finally getting some cold weather.
