Thanks - this one just looked so fun that we had to do it. Thanks to the Technonaut for his help.

My favorite has got to be On Land? -No- Mutiny. No other branches no other options, do not pass go etc.

Also, in case there's confusion: This comment thread actually is open to people not named david.

not to strain at gnats, but i think one of the qualifiers for a "junta" should be "are you south of the equator?"

First non-david here...

HILARIOUS. I was laughing out loud as I read through it, which also made Ginger in my lap laugh. Very, very excellent. My favorite is definitely "You're Doing it?"
"No, THEY"
"You can crush it?"
Amazing distinctions. Bravo.

dävid, i totally see where you're going with that, but what about all the charming central american juntas over the years?

Can you use charming and junta in the same sentence??? I know you just did, so technically you can, but I think charming should be replaced by crazy or something.

Quinn enjoyed this as well. He has a similar powerpoint slide he uses for his classes and he may email it to you one of these days (when he's in the country).

dave, you are right. may i humbly submit:

"are you south of the tropic of cancer?"

Dave Y said...

dävid, you're right - it can't be ignored.

Tree fixed.
