    I’m not sure if this is whimsy but it caught my attention enough for me to go looking it up on teh internet.

    Paul Burns,

    That looks to be more a Darwin Award nominee than whimsical.

    Do we know if he was a progressive or a conservative?

    Sam, in a way I am, but that isn’t why i was denounced. I’ll elaborate on another thread as this one is supposed to be stoush-free.

    Ootz, that really is quite incredible.

    I think I will start with a tadpole and work upwards.

    I know that this is not very whimsical [redacted]

    Like the gloves–very handy when feeding sharks . . .

    Its almost as if she has to encourage this last shark to get moving again.
