1. You probably came close to Tombstone
It seemed very much like a Freeper Post to me.

2. I can't accept your apology
that was pure dumb bullshit.

You know how agitated everyone is right now.

Besides -- that's what the lounge is for.

7. Why would I post it in the lounge??
It wouldn't look right or seem genuine.

15. I have one of the healthiest senses of humor on this board
I love a good joke.

Love it!!!

But as I stated previously, that was dumb bullshit.

And I'm not the only person who was offended.

12. Apology Accepted
It was in poor taste, but I have done things like that before. I once used sarcasm in a post, but was not obvious enough about it.

I also don't want to perpetuate sexist stereotypes, but it is true that my wife often elbows me around her family because I sometimes don't quite understand the situation and act inappropriately.

I normally wouldn't respond to something like this, but it looks like some people are being hard on you and I do think people are wound a little tight about this (but they have good reason to be wound tight).

16. Levity will not be tolerated - if you laugh, the terrorists win

We must crack down on these jokesters and gigglemongers, root them out wherever they are, and we will either bring them to solemnity, or we will bring solemnity to them!
