Well, I thought it was cute and funny. I guess I'm just not _sensitive_
enough... Gee, Scott, do you also get upset when you see references to
"MSWeird," "Micro$haft," or "Gates' evil empire"? Or is it just when your
nose is (unwittingly) tweaked? Maybe you should sue for emotional
distress -- I'm sure you can find a lawyer who'll take the case.

This world is just getting way too humorless for me. In the immortal words
of John Stossel, "Give me a break!"

Curmudgeonly yours,
