    Well, as we noted, I think according to the definitions in this thread, I'm straight, so about THP (True Homosexualist Practicality) I can only guess, and of that I'd say that of course LV will only be producing FOUR of these, which means that P Diddy, Beyonce, and Pharrel will probably get the others. Is that upmanship? Anyway, as for flavored prophylacticons, if you notice all those phone-cord looking thingys on the bag and the tassles, small holes will be punched into the upper corners of the packaging and they'll be strung on them like beads or those old Chinese coins. Thus, in addition to whatever fits IN the bag, they can be stored in open display for others who might be wondering how many and in what flavors you have.
    The gey are such a whacky, fun-loving people. It's pretty obvious that Three's Company had a profound and lasting effect on their culture. - B

    That we are. You should see what we do with curtains! edit: I must admit I have almost no idea what's going on in this thread, nor did I read it. BUT, that usually happens with anything involving FNB.

    Speaking of this, in the 1890s, "gay" just meant "happy." It was a perfectly good word that the homos stole and I want it back.

    No - people just keep quoting it in A&S threads for shits and giggles.

    AFAIK, A&S never cut for the Duke. Bad example.

    I believe that's why some parties like to spell it "ghey." I'm not sure, though. In any case, I'd be happy to petition the Pink Dolphin Society to officially return the word to your camp, much as Hong Kong was returned to China after a designated period of time. Nevertheless, deep down I feel like your camp and my camp might be the same camp, so to whom would we really be returning the word? I also just want to make sure that FNB isn't included anywhere in the negotiations. He's like the "stylemeup" of fabulosity.

    Actually, HK was granted to the Brits in perpetuity. Kowloon was on a 99 year lease which ended in 1997. The ChiComs made clear in the early '80s, that when the lease was up, they were not going to renew. Since HK cannot survive without Kowloon (no water on HK Island, for instance), the Brits had no choice but to make a deal.

    What this has to do with anything I have no idea.

    I'm pretty sure that Orientals don't drink water, so manton's HK theory is bunk.

    I refer, of course, to True Orientals, and not to, say, George Takei or the dudes who used to play Charlie Chan.

    I'm an oriented toward truth and the American Way.

    Do you drink water?

    Yes. But not if it's fizzy, and only with ice.
