Well, I AM a Steven Wright fan and I though the p0rn remark was over the line,
not funny and in poor taste.  Maybe I'm just getting older, who knows.

Ask anyone who knows me and you'll find I'm no stranger to dry humor, sarcasm,
and other things that don't translate well to the ASCII text world.

At least the presence of an emoticon lets people know you are not serious
absent the body language and vocal inflections.
