Smokey the Magnificent

Failing the Turing Test since 1986

I don’t think I will ever understand human behavior

Still having Christmas gift trouble. According to Helpdesk Man, buying him a moderately awesome possum-shooting kit – gun, pellets, holster, fancy hat – would make me the Best Wife Ever. But buying him a much more complete and instantly-usable kit containing a gun, pellets, holster, fancy hat and a possum is crossing some sort of “line”.

He will get socks and like it.

    Ha, he thinks that is crossing a line? He should come to the wilds! Here they shoot ‘em and then schoolchildren play games with them at a fair, such as ‘possum tossing’ and I don’t know what else. I have a suspicion they draw the line at ‘best dressed up dead possum’.
