I think Giraffe did the right thing. When I say right, I mean wrong. But when I say wrong, I mean right. Frankly, the whole thing could be consolidated a lot more. Or a lot less, depending on what I mean. For example:
The thread about smacking little girls and the thread about taking boys out of oil could be combined into the thread about testing hazardous chemicals on people. Girls and boys are people. Smack and oil are chemicals. In fact, since people are animals, both threads about pigeons could go in the same thread. The seven Michael Jackson threads also, since Michael Jackson needs smacking. I guess really the only thread that wouldn’t fit is the To Pit or Not to Pit thread. But it should be moved to Cafe Society anyway.
