Did Manta say whether he was ever coming back?
He didn't. He's sort of an enigmatic asshole like that, sometimes, which is a quality his confessor constantly berates him for.
Sinning aside, how are you doing, Iptuous?
Iptuous hasn't been around in a while. Not sure why.
Oh, that's a shame. I suspect LMNO is right; his moustache was glorious, and 'twould be a fitting end.
How you hanging in there, Roger?
Oh, tolerable. I have advanced the science of DUMBASS by leaps and bounds in your absence.
I expected nothing less. Any day now I hope to hear your announced discovery of the DUMBASS equivalent of the Higgs Boson.
I am hot on the trail. Given my history, I believe that it may be in my pants.
It was all a joke. In real life, I'm not this way. I'm some other way. I meant it to be funny to US, and it was, at least to the ME part of US. I meant it to be funny to YOU, just not THEM, see? Unless you are actually part of THEM, and if that's true, well, my apologies.
And that would be my individual apology. I would apologize for US but I'm not sure if there is an US that's larger than just ME in this regard. I'm not even so sure YOU are or are not at least partially any of THEM.
But if you are one of THEM to whom I am apologizing, I'm truly sorry.
