@David: Two English girls, Jean and Mary, are at the Highland Games...

That reminds me of an old bagpipes joke.

 

So there's this scotsman who plays in a bagpipe marching band.

One Saturday the band plays all afternoon, marching up and down the high street.

At the end of the afternoon he retires to the pub (bar) for a refreshing drink. Half way through he leaps to his feet and exclaims: "Oh no -- I left my bagpipes on the back seat of my car where anyone can see them!"

He runs out to his car, but it's too late...

...even though he locked the doors, someone has broken into the car and dumped a load more bagpipes in there LOL

@betajet: Max, I think you mean "mortal coil".  "Immortal Coil" is a Star Trek: TNG novel.

Arrgghhh -- I can't believe I wrote that -- I know better than that -- I really should start typing with my eyes open -- I just went in and "tweaked" the article -- thanks for the catch.

You can redeem yourself with another blog focused on the zombie apocalypse. Also, waiting for your slide show on protective tin foil hats for the apocalypse.

@Duane: The extra alcohol will kill more germs. Make it a double, just to be sure.

I'll drink to that!

@maxthemagnificent "I'm not an expert in this area, but I think that if a woman wears one then technically it transmogrifies itself into a skirt."

I just love the word "transmogrifies."

@kfield: I was excitedly reading through this article waiting for more detail on the Zombie Apocalypse. I feel like you did a bait and switch, at least with half the headline!

Dang -- I suppose I should have closed the circle at the end by explicitly pointing out that, even though the use of fist bumps cuts down on the spread of infectious agents , it probably wouldn't help much in the case of a full-blown Zombie Apocalypse -- I hang my head in shame (sad face)

@kfield: If you were the only "normal" one in the crowd, wouldn't that make you the weirdo?

Ooooh -- it's hard to argue with logic like that.

@kfield: Are kilts strictly for men, or can a woman wear one and would it still be a kilt in that case?

I'm not an expert in this area, but I think that if a woman wears one then technically it transmogrifies itself into a skirt.

@antedeluvian "I  have NEVER seen so many weirdos in one place. For a while I was scared that someone would turn on us for being too normal."

If you were the only "normal" one in the crowd, wouldn't that make you the weirdo? And how do you know that you're "too normal?" I know people like Max walking around thinking they are perfectly normal, but we know better, right? :-)

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
