1. Tortoises are land creatures.

Turtles are amphibious (generally).

I believe that tortoises are a sub-group of turtles.

...my Richardo/GiE dual-thread generator was apparently on the fritz...

Now there's an interesting story: who is Fritz and why is he always blamed for breaking things? :silly:

5. Tortoises are not amphibian. They are terrestrial.

9. Well, I don't think Cornyn has ever had an original idea.
So now at least I know who to blame his ignorant remark on!! But then I also have you to thank for Jon Stewart's lampooning of said remark.

11. Actually, this is what happens when Cornyn gets an original idea.
He should stick to the script.

13. You have to have a good sense of humor to live in Texas.
Well, if you're a liberal, that is.
