Variety is the spice of life: ambiguity a vice of life.

Ambiguity is but variety comingled.

A delicate blend of spices accenting a sauce of words and meaning.

Ambiguity is the overwhelming amount of variety confronting us. "If you're not confused, you just don't understand the situation.

a good dog joke

Okay, so one day Bill and Jim were out walking their dogs. They came to a restaurant, and Bill said, "Hey, I'm hungry. Let's go in." When Jim pointed out that the restaurant wouldn't let them in with their dogs, Bill replied, "Sure they will. Follow my lead." He put on a pair of sunglasses and walked up to the door with his labrador.
The waiter at the door stopped him and said, "Hey, you can't bring that dog in here."
"Oh, he's my seeing eye dog," replied Bill, and the man let him in.
So Jim put on a pair of sunglasses and walked up to the door with his chihuahua. The man at the door stopped him and said, "Hey, you can't bring that dog in here."
"Oh, he's my seeing eye dog," replied Jim.
"A chihuahua is your seeing eye dog?" said the man.
"What? They gave me a chihuahua?" exclaimed Jim.


wwh, I also have a shaggy dog joke if you still want it!

Dear French pi: Please start a shaggy dog thread. TEd must not have exhausted his repertoire. And it is to be hoped that others will fall suit. Maybe I can think of one in the meantime.

this too shall pass
tsuwm>that would be pretty futile for anything that's not on the first page. and artificial if you were to make old threads current just for that.
musick>It doesn't make old threads current by just editing the subject line.

just so. -ron obvious

musick>Keiva [or should I say Jimmy Obvious (Ron's little brother)] - Yet, within three posts we are still close enough to the same subject...

Keiva, does this help at all?

I have spent the last several hours just trying to catch up on the posts I've missed. I think I must be officialy squiffy by now.

short black

Will that be caf, double caf, decaf, double decaf?

We don't have short, sir. Would you like the medium, extra medium, regular, irregular or standard?

And will that be Jamaican, Costa Rican, Nicaraguan, Portobellan or Javanese?

Organic or inorganic?

Shade grown?

French roast, Italian roast, Viennese roast or American roast?

For here or to go?

Need room?

Cup, glass or mug?

Paper or plastic?

I'm sorry sir, we're closing in 5 minutes.
