  • Just as I suspected, second person again. Wait...isn't testing Weirdnet a symptom of something?

  • It's a symptom of dunderheadedness, is what it is.

  • Geez, yarb, that's a little harsh. You calling mollusque and chained_bear dunderheads? :-)

  • Dunderhead can be a term of endearment, sort of like flibbertigibbet. (For a Wordie experiment, try typing "flibber" in the word search box and see how many versions of "flibbertigibbet" appear on the drop-down menu.)

  • Ah! Around here it doesn't have that connotation. Yarb, you have my apologies. :-)

    December 3, 2007

  • Aw, yarb, I always liked the term dunderhead. I assumed, like reesetee, that it isn't ordinarily meant affectionately, but... now I'm going to assume, without any proof whatsoever, that your comment was affectionate. *gives yarb a noogie*
