Had fun with your definition today, purpleman! A rose for your good cartoon, James! (an aside for pupleman and Stevenson about a past verbot: You both noted that beefcant got votes but no comments. It was because most of the compliments I thought turned my face red! If you care to go back and take a look, I'm tickled pink to tell you I finally came up with one I could post!)
