"So We値l Know Them By Their Limping..." - A Toast To All Of You
Edited on Mon Dec-31-07 10:52 AM by WilliamPitt
May those that love us, love us.
For those that don稚 love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if he doesn稚 turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we値l know them by their limping.


- Irish toast

I Thank every God that Is, Was, Will Be, Wasn't, Isn't, and/or Won't...

I Thank Fortune, Fate and Plain Old Dumb Luck...

I Thank Electrons, Microchips, Keyboards, Ones, Zeroes, HTML Coders and Al Gore...

I Thank Skinner, Elad, EarlG and All Moderators Past, Present and Future...

And I Thank YOU most of all, DU and DUers.

You know why, because you are why.

Happy New Year to all and sundry.

386 days to go.

:toast: :hug:

3. yes, and congrats on your Pats
16-0 is a hell of an accomplishment. As much as it pains me to say that. (and you know it does)

6. Thanks, but...
...it's nothing more than an interesting NFL trivia question to come without three more wins to follow.

:toast:

AFC East, baby. :)

Thank you for being here, and for being the talented and driven writer that you are...

Happy New Year to you, and to all of us!

14. Peace and a Happy New Year to all DU'ers
yes the countdown to the closing of this dark and sad chapter in our lives has commenced in earnest. tomorrow is one day closer to the end of one hell of a nightmare and I suspect we ain't seen nothing yet like these next 386 days are going to bring us.

16. The Irish certainly have a way with words
How's that for understatement? And the one you just offered is clean, too. I could even even teach it to my second graders on Saint Patrick's Day. Well, I could if it didn't have the references to God. But I'll look for some others. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy New Year.

If you're drinking tonight, don't drive. I want to be able to argue with you tomorrow!

Stay put and have fun, wherever you end up!
