    Ah yes the Frankenstein Theme method, first tried unsuccessfully by a young Slovakian boy.
    I say unsuccessfully, as the following day all that remained of the village was dust where residences and shops once stood; Oh and lest I forget, a single chicken which walked and "begawked" along that which was once the main thoroughfare.

    Let it be a lesson for us all. Kung Pao, just be wary of your brew.

    That's almost equal parts tip and trick! Thus I shall dub thee a triptick. Not to be confused with a triptych, that's a horse of a completely different color.

    Yes, and to be clear, it’s inward towards each other like a pinching motion. Love this feature. It was removed a few builds back, but has since been put back in.

    If my side still aches tomorrow, the doctor advised I drop by to prevent a full fledged busting of my gut.

    Killer!

    Chewy you are like the Jaws of out of left field unexpected explosions of humor, always just beneath the surface at the ready for the perfect moment.
    DUN UN
    You just write some relatively normal posts lulling all into a false sense of knowing what to expect from you,
    DUN UN
    and just as we're letting our guard down,
    DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN
    you always deliver a knockout uppercut of hilarity. Leaping from the water right onto the boat, "Orca", as the genius of the hilarity swallows us like Jaws swallowing Robert Shaw!

    DUN UN

    and then swim away under the cover of the oceans black depths!
