It never bothers me because, if the thread dies after my post, it's obviously because I was so erudite, eloquent, and thorough, there was simply nothing left for anyone else to add!

And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleamsó
In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams.

Give a man a fish, and he eats once. Teach a man to fish, and you'll never get any work out of him.

Reminds me of my cousin's birthday cake. As we were eating dinner, I noticed the flowers in the middle of the table. After dinner, my aunt took the flowers out of the pot and said “Here's your cake!” She had made a cake-like thing that looked like potting soil, complete with worms, which she troweled onto plates. It was pretty good (even though I am not a fan of gummy anything).

If you say
"Gummies are nummy"
then I would reply
"You have the palate of a mummy".

Ah, yes, Rosebud. You realize the real Rosebud belonged to Marion Davies, and it was not a sled (slippery, though).

One shouldn't eat panda. Don't need a cite, it's all there in black and white.

Here's my experience at Panda Express:

*munch, munch, munch*
BANG!

Eats, shoots and leaves.

I haven't yet posted on this thread, but will give it a try today. I'm at my job but retiring this Friday. My first week of retirement, I intend to get lots of rest.
I ate a cricket taco once. It tasted like crunchy Worcestershire sauce.

I had a gecko that ate crickets.

Then it started trying to sell me insurance, so I had to get rid of it.

I gave him $20 and he pocketed it. When I asked for change, he said, "True change comes from within."
