How to make an attractive man look short and intimidated.

"make him stand next to me" wasn't far off

Sometimes when perusing the "Today's Posts" list of thread titles, some just jump out and invite an immediate response (from me at least), purely from the title alone - immaterial of what the actual post subject matter may be.

It can either be, a case of the exact title having an ambiguous meaning, or an accidental, or deliberate misreading of one or more of the words, or just even typos.

I often have an insatiable desire to post a reply (in a troll-like fashion) on many threads, but really have to control myself - especially having read the opening post, and realising that a supposed attempt at wit, may no longer be relevant or appropriate.
It's tempting, isn't it? Especially when you read "Picking the Right Burger" and think it said "Picking the Right Booger".

I don't know if I'm the only weirdo in this regard, or if there are any other readers out there, who pick up on this?
It's EF; you're surrounded by weirdos.

P.S. Where's the thread that gives directions for how to copy a link to another thread?

Swiss customs - Holding our package

A strange custom indeed - a bit like a Swiss pass-the-parcel party game, without music.

Re: Thread titles - What first pops into your head, when you read one?

I tried to hold on this one, but it keeps coming back in my head and I begin to think I am totally perverted...

Vibram five fingers makes me think of a super power vibrator device....

I've been fighting the urge to post that one here. Thank you for making me see I am not the only one with a perverted mind that reads something like Vibrating five fingers. I was shocked to see it had something to do with babies...

I blame Nil for putting my dirty mind to work! (I had to zoom in Firefox to make sure I was reading it wrong. It had to be wrong!)

Beastiality [in Switzerland]?
