    And very American.

    And I will give you more examples of where US common usage does not follow that strict rule. Funny how it's been in documented use for 200 years.

    Funnier still how ARISTOshark made that the thin basis for his unprovoked attack on me, unrelated to the thread. And he's got a problem with ME? The hypocrisy abounds here.

    Unprovoked attack? Because I don't like the term "step foot"?
    Jesus, you are every bit as deranged as Southbeach thinks you are.

    That's general English usage, not US standard usage, which can be dated back to 1813, as I quoted above. Last I checked ARISTOshark & I are living the US, not the UK.


    That's funny, last time you went off on a tirade, you seemed convinced you were Irish, which of course uses the same English as the UK. Now you want to be an American again. Dreadfully convenient, isn't it?

    Aristoshark saidI've said enough. You are a self-important, not very bright, angry old coot who deludes himself on his literary abilities. In fact, when you write you come across as a parody of a prissy, sniffy old queen, with your archaisms and precious little fake endearments. When you attempt humor, you invariably over-explain your jokes so that even ones that could have been funny fall flat. Your inane parodies of popular song are clumsy at best, but you always post them along with the original so everyone can see how clever you think you are.

    You are vain, stupid, and silly, and haven't the wit to realize any of it.

    I wish I had known all this when I offered to help you relocate, when we lived just 3 blocks from each other. You were grateful at the time, but then our schedules didn't work so it didn't happen.

    And yet you were willing to accept my help. Now what does that say about YOU? Were you happy to exploit someone you really hate, as you state now? Or were you lying to let me off easy? Afraid to tell me how much you detested me, so that it all bursts forth now? Either way, your tantrum today makes me glad I never did help you. icon_razz.gif

    That pizza idea is very cool. If I ever go to Pizza Hut, I might try it.
    Too bad I hardly ever go to the Hut. Is there even one in this town? Meh.

    Part Irish and raised in the US, which you told me doesn't count. Only 100% Irish like you does, as you told us all here, as you mocked the US Irish who hold things like St. Patrick's Day parades. Kinda reminds me of that guy in Australia who's the only bonafide homosexual on this site, or possibly the known universe.

    I very much admire the Irish, it's part of my heritage. But I don't admire someone who denies the Irish heritage to anyone who isn't pure enough, according to his own arbitrary & selfish standards.

    The fact that you can't even quote my own position back at me correctly shows how much you fail at reading comprehension.

    Here's a hint. I have a friend who immigrated to Ireland from the Sudan when she was two. She's an Irish citizen. And far more Irish than you could ever hope to be. Because she is a daughter of Ireland, and acknowledged as such. There is no 100% Irish. There is no US Irish. There are only Americans and the Irish. You are or you are not.

    No, I don't recognise your vague relative who came off a boat as proof of your Irish nationality. You know who else doesn't? The nation of Ireland. Which trumps what your American grandmum told you at a goddamn piano.

    Even if you are 'part Irish,' you should be able to get basic English grammar at least partially correct.

    I'd toss your pizza. icon_wink.gif

    But aside from that, it's rather coincidental that a flame war breaks out in a Pizza Hut thread, as Papa John's founder had a flame war with his Co-partner at Pizza Hut. Hmmmmmm... icon_idea.gif

    If Papa John makes a freethrow from mid-court at the NCAA championship game all of America gets free pizza. Not sure if Pizza Hut is honoring that deal or not.

    Papa John is kind of handsome. Do I remember hearing somewhere that he's a homophobe?

    Deliberate. I thought it more fitting to the general theme of the thread. icon_wink.gif
