  • Sionnach, I got the tracksuit reference--was just trying to make a joke (which fell flat on its face).

    C_b, are we nearing some kind of horrific Jones anniversary? I'm wondering because I caught part of a TV program about the massacre the other day--the first I've ever seen.

    P.S.: Sionnach, please don't channel Jim Jones.

  • It's interesting that nobody says "drink the Flav-r-Aid". It must really piss off the Kool-Aid people. It's as if people stopped buying Motrin in the wake of a Tylenol adulteration episode.

  • sionnach is channeling Jim Jones. Although my own exhaustive research on *ahem* Wikipedia indicates that "Jones and several members argued that the group should commit 'revolutionary suicide' by drinking cyanide-laced grape flavored Flavor Aid (often misidentified as Kool-Aid) along with a sedative."

    March 25, 2009

  • You know, like those comet people.

  • *shudders*

    A track suit??

    March 25, 2009

  • Now, r_t. Just drink some of the tasty Kool Aid and don this comfy tracksuit.

    March 25, 2009

  • I'm not ready yet.
