Nice guy, eh?
abra on 2014-02-01 08:29:38
Wow! So glad he's not in my family.
montyb on 2014-02-17 12:12:37
Tell me about it. I have to invite him for Christmas every year.

Scary. And sad for him.

Monty, why don't you help him find the courage to end the habit?

Oh the courage it took for poor Henri to try to stop going to Monty's every Christmas, but Monty kept insisting on having the famous Montherlant fruitcake.

Good job not splitting that infinitive

I split an infinitive once. It took several weeks to heal.

How many stitches did it require?

An infinite number.
Teamwork! What a great crew!

Not today, oddcouple. It's Saturday!

I'm going to join the CIO, because everybody that I see I owe.

Make them an offer they can't refuse.
universalmom on 2014-04-15 09:51:40
In context, a scary statement!

What do you get when you cross a Mafioso with a semiotician?
kb83 on 2015-04-01 04:33:18
A semiot-a-Mafic? An ichthyologist?
abra on 2016-01-23 11:08:04
I have no idea what the answer is (I had to google semiotician), but I love kb83's first answer.
kb83 on 2016-03-30 04:01:38
I hope LLapp gets back to this quote, so we can all learn her answer. Conversations take a long, long time, on this site.
LLapp on 2016-06-05 14:38:28
And the answer is: An offer you can't understand. (Maybe next time I'll just include the punchline with the riddle!)
marnita on 2016-07-10 08:53:24
It's more fun this way, LLapp.
KMMRN on 2017-02-20 06:05:27
I liked kb83's answer.
kb83 on 2017-04-05 08:38:18
Well, I like my answer too, but I also like the real answer. Thanks, LLapp.
