    That's precisely why I love working in IT - I can get away with loads more with those amusing IT boys than I can in any catty female dominated workplace I know of very few other professions where its acceptable, nay, obligatory to have transforming robots, clockwork zimmer racing grandmas or fluffy blue aliens on your desk! More acceptance and less claws I say!

    Beverley, linguists are a pretty weird group too. But in that case, sometimes you might finding yourself in a race to be the weirdest. Needless to say, linguistics parties are strange places.

    On a random note - I find it funny that there are more moderators online then there are members (for the entire day)
    Yeah? Well while you moderator flapjacks sit there with your comfy mcp, Beverly and I are answering threads, and occasionally helping people, unlike you guys (with exception) who just answer questions correctly! I mean, what's the fun in that?

    Would an example of that weirdness be, as Moneypenny said to James Bond in one of the films:

    "I always knew you were a cunning linguist."

    I thought flapjacks seemed like an appropriate insult that wouldn't get me banned

    Surely not! Daniel is far too sweet and innocent for all that kind of word play!

    You see, John, that's one of about 2 jokes in all of linguistics, and the other one is pointing out that we only have 2 jokes...
