If you read the last four words of the first Straighdope book very slowly, you can see it says “I buried Cecil”.
Just a heads-up, no criticism intended:
Given X is greater than Y and Z is greater than Y, we cannot conclude that Z is grearter than X or vice versa.
You’re right. I’m ashamed.

I read the thread title and thought, “Well, duh!”
Jesus? I like him very much, but He cannot help with curveballs.
Even mighty Cecil and/or Xash are advised that it is bad to steal Jo Bu’s rum. Very bad.
Round here he seems to be.
Rest of the world: Cecil who?
They shall be smited.
Meet the Cecil
Sgt. Cecil’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Magical Mystery Dope
Please do not be ashamed–the intent was a polite heads-up, nothing more.

Cecil’s a lot more real. Any way you figure it.
