Or you could do what I do and say it anyways, offending everyone, and not caring.

We need a "kidding" font or something. I was just trying to type up some smart retort, and couldn't figure out how to make it work w/o completely offending somebody. Sometimes the winky face just seems inadequate.

I was kidding too Reesetee. Very well, apparently.
Well, there's the problem, then. I define books entirely differently.I was just kidding, seanahan--not very well, apparently.

"'What is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversation?'"
I define a book as "something you read that is full of words". I think that describes Wordie pretty well.
What? What chapters? What verses? No one told me Wordie was a book!

Very clever seanahan! "Thou shalt not have graven images of other coders before me" sayeth John (Book of John the Wordie, Chap 12, Verse 4).
*moving even farther away from seanahan*
I can't make this up; as I read your post Reesetee, I heard thunder in the distance.
Seanahan, I'm standing far away from you so as not to be struck by lightning. ;-)
