Hey Clayton, Rikboyee's character works for Mrs. Jenkins. A pairoboss!

or maybe the two are a pairadox

Appairently, Rikboyee is challenging me to a duo. Pair for the course. Once I de-deuced it, I realized it was no yoke. I'm certain he would twin, and I'm far too young to dyad. Pairhaps we should drink from the ceremonial doublet instead.

but you are nursing a wounded soldier - or was that shoulder

Clayton - 2007-06-14: 11:51:00
Heheh. I'll have to shoulder this burden stoically, like a soldier without arms.

I suspect duplicity on someone's part, but perhaps I'm just splitting hairs.

How dare you speak ill of my toeses! (Sound of crickets.)

Hai! Dos puns of Claytons are real ni-slappers, but they deux seem a bit two forced tu me. At la-shtayim presented with an opportunity to make a total twee-b of myself and pun in as many languages as I can handle without having any iki, disgusting kaksi-dents. It-zwei-l and it's nasty, but I couldn't resist, an-dalawá-nt is tu make everyone groan at how terrible these puns èr. I've deliberately included 16 different languages, so you'll have to really be on your to's if you want to find them all.

Wow! That was quite ErWenntertaining!
