Wow. The wonder of it all.
>As a line item on a War packing list, I see contraceptives as a good
While I am quite sure Pug didn't mean it this way, it has served to
remind me that I started this whole brouhaha by including the line item
"condoms" in my original post. I believe Lord Timo's reply was
essentially a 'reductio ad absurdum' argument that this line item was
probably a little risque for a public post.
It is very interesting to note that Timo is getting gang-flamed for
pointing this out, while I , the instigator and original pervert, sit
safely in the background. This is because, unlike Timo, I remembered to
include a '<g>' humor alerter after the word 'condom'. This simple, easy
to use protective device has prevented *my* post from developing into
something unexpected, complicated, and hard to deal with. I therefore
recommend the use of a '<g>' for any and all humorous contact. <g>
If you didn't get that, ask someone smarter to explain it to you.
As to why I included this item on my original list, well, by golly, I
don't want to forget to bring some. I mean, it's an uncertain world out
there; you step out your door and never know what is going to happen (and
sometimes, even hiding in your room doesn't help). I carry a spare key, a
quarter, and an emergency sawbuck for the same reason: Be prepared. Look
both ways before you cross the street. Carry duct tape at all times.
Bring extra feast gear and always carry a condom! It's just common sense,
ask your mom if you don't believe me. Really. All kidding aside.
