Default they got together

"The word aerobics came about when the gym instructors got together and said, "If we're going to charge $10 an hour, we can't call it jumping up and down.""

So then the word "airplane" came about when the pilots got together and said "if we're going to charge $500 a flight we can't call it "winging it."

And the doctors got together and said "If we charge 10k a day, we can't call it practicing."

Default and lo, a colon has been added

"Censor: a self-appointed snoophound who sticks his nose in other people's business."
Bennett Alfred Cerf

Lurker on January 6th, 2011
Perhaps there should be a colon after Censor?

gryhnd51 on November 25th, 2011
"censor" the VERB means to remove, suppress, delete, to express disapproval of. In this quote, it is NOT being used as a noun, in which case a colon would be required.

kb83 on November 14th, 2014
I vote for noun and a colon.

maradnu on January 29th, 2015
Having a colon is handy. I'd hate to be without one.

montyb on June 19th, 2015
Some censors are intimately acquainted with their own colons.

Roxanne on December 31st, 2015
I bet censor is a noun and the colon is missing. It sounds like Bennett Cerf's style that way, and I doubt he would have urged censoring someone, since he won a big court case against censorship (of James Joyce's Ulysses).

ERROR: Please add a colon after "Censor" per the original quote. To verify: (link)

Okay, admin. A group colonoscopy has determined that the patient needs a colon transplant.

oooh...incandescent rage! Yikes!

Merely petty distractions for those who cannot accept responsibility for their own actions.

crystals are excellent for hurling at the heads of those who doubt their powers

montyb on October 4th, 2014
The only power crystals have is to fascinate me with their symmetries and beauty. You should see my amethyst-lined geode in my classroom.

tgreen517 on January 1st, 2015
unless they are dilitheum chrystals!

Spenser on February 18th, 2015
OMG! The digression of geeky references lets me know I have found a home!

someone once asked Steve Allen what sign he was born under ' he said ' Rooms to Rent'

LLapp on November 14th, 2017
^That goes right alongside my father's (though I think he was quoting someone) "If I had my life to live over, I'd live over a delicatessen."

abra on December 17th, 2017
I have two Amethyst geodes. Probably much smaller than Monty's. I don't get any spiritual vibes from crystals, but I find them very beautiful.

DrCryptell on April 19th, 2018
I'm neon with the idea of cantaloupe, antelope, microscope, heliotrope., endoscope, and jumping rope. Does any of that nonsense light up our lives?

How nice

For some reason I was hung up with "I would bite my noses to see you."
