If you're going to do that, I'm going to retaliate with Glee Club Of The Damned: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj-x9ygQEGA&feature=PlayList&p=E42D120A5B8BF088&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=5

You so totally brought this on yourself.

I was beginning to get into The Glee Club of the Damned until they said they didn't like Lord of the Flies. They are dead to me now.

Unimaginitive use of the English language.

I mean "like" is such a bland emotion. You should pep up you vocabulary a bit. And it isn't so much that fruit flies "like" bananas, the poor things are completely dependent on fruit for their reproduction. How can you use a word like "like" for such an overwhelming fetish?

And the comparisons just don't work. I'm sorry, but arrows wobble and fall out of the air, assuming they haven't hit some poor turtle who stopped halfway to his goal.

Uh... Brendan, I don't like Lord of The Flies. When it comes to depressing existencialist crud, my drug of choice is Camus. Sartre was uncertain in his character development and had a less than firm hold on the Jungian basis of social constructs. :)

John,
"The answer is a bananna"
Winston Churchill.

Cite, please? You can't possibly believe we'd take this on Churchill's authorities without a corroborating link. I mean, honestly, I've good reason to believe Winston Churchil was a pear man!
