    I assumed it was a portmanteau of "fun" and "lunatic".
    Is "fundametalist" a heavy metal fundamentalist?
     
  2. Um, I think you misheard that. It's actually "down in Bur Sa'id."

  3. This is not a response from dank. It has a small fragment of real humor
    in it.

  4. Your point?
    When were the divorce papers served?

    You are standing in a vat of nasty substances!

    Do NOT dive for the cash!

    It looks to me like a combination of "fundamentalist" and "fanatic".
    It could also just be a case of spelling "fanatic" is it is pronounced
    (at least by most of those I hear say it).

    This leads to another question: Why does "fanatic" have an accent on
    the second syllable, but "lunatic" has it on the first and third?

    Maybe you're pronouncing it wrong!

    (Who put the fun in Scunthorpe?)
     
  9. That imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I guess.
    About the time I asked one too many dumb questions that I wouldn't be
    asking if I knew what a pain in the ass it is to be a woman.
     

  10. Well, you don't have to get all fanatical about it. You can get
    lunatical, however, if you like.

    There... that equalizes them.
     
  11. Have you ever ordered "Fries" from Jack Nicholson at "Jack In The Box"?

    "Who put the Straw in Strawberry?"
