Oh, you've got to be kidding me! What a silly thing to say! So, which would I be then? A kiddie or a wimp? (Be careful what you say, here...) *Waves one of DetTH's booties around menacingly.*


I see you are only 18. A kiddie compared to me. If you weren't a girl you'd be a wimp too.

Do you freely admit to owning a bunny? Bunnies have no place on a pirate ship except as a source of protien. A swashbuckler's life is hard...no room for cuddly bunnies. Parrots are OK though. At least they can talk.

BTW since I'm new here maybe someone can explain the relavence of bunnies, cats and turtles. Have I missed something?

nofate, it has to do with our avatars, as you will see when you explore the forum.

Legally I'm an adult, so being compared to you means nothing. And I assure you, I'm no wimp, and would not be considered as such even if I were male. I'd be a little less free throwing assumptions around, were I you. ;) I'm not being mean, I'm just sayin'.

I freely admit to owning a bunny.

So, we're from Ontario, are we? Interesting. Always good to have more Canadians! Welcome aboard!

A whatamorph?? OK... wikipedia to the rescue:
The lagomorphs are the members of the taxonomic order Lagomorpha, of which there are two families, the Leporidae (hares and rabbits), and the Ochotonidae (pikas). The name of the order is derived from the Greek lagos (λαγος) hare and morph (μορφή) form
Looks like you've got a lagomorph between your legs baby!

Welcome, Bob. Watch out for all the turtles, bunnies, cats and dogs (and occasional vampire / merciless emperor). Enjoy!

Recently, while driving thru the center on Indianapolis, on I 70, known to truckers as the spagetti bowl, I found myself in the wrong lane ( as frequently happens) and miracles of miracles, another vehicle yielded to me and let me over....I'm pretty sure it was a Pastafarian, so thank you! I am now a convert.

It wouldn't surprise me if other people thought the same way.

Yeah..... I never really understood the point of this thread either... in fact when I joined up 5 months ago I wrote “I don't quite see why I'm supposed to make my first post here… it seems a rather unnecessary Germanic regulation” and you were the first person to reply to me with a very cordial and courteous welcome! But no-one ever explained to me what this thread was about… I guess it’s just a way of getting to know new members and saying hello to them and answering any silly questions they may have ‘cos they don’t know what Pastafarianism is... altho’ many of us have rather different opinions on that topic (see All Things FSM What do we stand for? and the latest comments on All Things FSM A Question from a Christian) and it's just as well, 'cos a range of different opinions is the sign of a healthy demo-crassy! I guess everyone has their own idea of what this thread is all about too..... but no-one as yet ('cept me!) seems to have given you any coherent reply to the question inherent-implied in your post!
Perhaps it's just what Catholics call "mistero della fede" (mystery of the faith!)

I was wondering if anyone had any advise on how to break the news to them...I don't want them to freak out.
Get them drunk, get them happy. Then do it. And be tactful. Don't yell, stay calm at all times. You'll undoubtedly lose some respect, but at least they'll know and you'll be happy.

So I'm not really a new convert, but I figured it's been long enough that I should post my first here.
