      See, this is why I come to Ordinary Times.

      On any other comment board, this comment would set off all sorts of warning lights and result in a file being opened, and likely, your name being put on some sort of list.Report

        Would it have been better if I’d said “nekkid”?

        I’m sure my name is on enough lists in enough files. Say, after Oscar Gordon and I wander off into an engineering design discussion started by a question like, “What could a terrorist do if they had a thousand magnesium road flares?”

        Some years back I was taking a homeland security policy class and the guest speaker was my state’s homeland security director. I asked that question. The glare it got me was priceless :^)Report

      Disagree. The mother in the sunburn cartoon is distinctly different from the mother in this one. I don’t see the two being the same person.Report
