92. Oh, God(dess), let me consult the Book of Potter....
My mistake. Here's what the book says: "And finally, Bungie the budgie has found a novel way of keeping cool this summer..." and then a sentence later: "If they had reached water-skiing Budgerigars..."

Having not read the Potter book in a while, I recalled the word "budgerigars" as "budgerians" (probably my feeble mind's attempt to "americanize" the word), and for that I grovel at the feet of my God(dess) to beg forgiveness and mercy.


BTW, "NSFW" stands for "not safe for work", another Americanism (well, OK, actually a "fark-ism", but FARK is american....twisted, but american).

As for a "true acolyte", I don't know if you want to paste that label on me.....I've always been a bit of a religious dilletante, except for Militant Agnosticism, which I'm pretty good at. I don't know much about the mythology of the Sphinx, other than the typical stuff schoolkids learn (riddle game, you win, you can pass, you lose, you get "et", riddle involving 4, 2, and 3) Oh, wait a minute, I think we better let it go at that..... ;)
