Why stop there? I hold Cosmo personally responsible for those two and the entire Cold War as well.

No, Readerbreeder, you are not. I hold that (in)glorious post (at least until someone else comes here and learns that).

Don't worry our favorite Customer Service Carebear and munch at the cookies within reasonable limit! Uh, wait, may reasonable limit is the whole package of them, regardless of size...

No pet peeves. We're weighing gerbils vs puppies vs. glow-in-the-dark kittens. Guess which one is in the lead?
