    Is there an echo in here?

    Dammit AKAK...I told you not to let your damn slut toaster near my Foreman. Now look what happened

    Read product information for the George Foreman K3422 8-in-1 Multi-Function Toaster Oven

    <table class="global" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr><td style="width: 1%;" valign="top"> [​IMG] </td> <td class="topModule"> George Foremans toaster oven and broiler handles a multitude of tasks like a champ! Equipped with a griddle and bun warmer, it can also bake, roast, broil, grill, roast, and toast! It also functions as a rotisserie, and its large 0.6 cu ft capacity can easily accommodate roast beef, lamb, chicken, pork, or fish. Includes two reversible racks, a rotisserie spit and holder, baking pan, broiler insert, rack handle, two cookie sheets, and a crumb tray.

    21 - same shit happened when Kbuck got his damn peanut butter near my chocolate.

    Of course, we're both kazillionaires now, but it's more the principle of it.

    I feel your pain...but I tried to tell him that toaster was a floozy. Did you see how big her slots were getting? Could have fit a croissant in those gaps.

    Stupid whore.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Yeah, but the way I hear it once you get into those big slots she heats up something fierce. That slutty toaster is hot to trot. And your George Foreman grill is one desparate bastard to hit it.

    How is it acceptable for us to call the Ohioan Russia: "Roo - shee"? Because we SAY so! Versailles? Why, let's call it "Ver - sails"....

    We are Americans, so we reserve the right to butcher any foreign dialect that we choose. So, for the record, Qatar is not "Ka - tar' " according to the international consortium, it is actually "Cut' - ter". I say, who cares? Let's call it "Guitar," seeing as we know that's what it looks like. You mean to tell me the rest of the world doesn't put the accent on the wrong syllable for just about every English word they attempt to pronounce?

    Linguistic historical progression (for those still reading and who have nothing better to do):

    Ch'a (chah)
    Chai (chai)
    T'e (tay)
    Tea (tea)

    If you transport a word from one culture to another, something like this almost always happens in the process.
