Personally, while we're on the topic of a title for Hippo, I nominate "But not the hippopotamus", after the book by the same name.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

At the risk of sabotaging myself, I'd totally go for that. I'd even switch out my avatar for the book-cover.

Unfortunately, it was decided 5-6 pages back that not only do you have to read the entire thread, but you have to somehow prove that you've read the entire thread. I've read, if not all of it at least most of it (obviously skipping over the inane rants of the few idiots presently allowed to post) and I couldn't think of a way to prove that I had. :D

Good luck, though, and it's promising that you've been given a clever recommendation. :)

Well, to be truthful, I am pretty much just one giant seething pile of never-ending bull shit. About the only time you can ever trust me not to be bull-shitting is when I'm talking about history.

But still, I'd kind of like that to be a surprise.

Well, that may apply to most new arrivals who want titles, but not, as it were, the hippopotamus. :-)

I just realised the word I meant to use was "sibilance". But there is not phrase which implies annoyingness to be found in sibilance, I think.

I called him El Senor Fruit Swing to mock his inability to spell 'bananahammock' properly (even graciously ignoring the missing space) and the scary thing is that ... he liked it so much that he re-registered to use it. :shock:

It's dedication to something, at least. Something we don't agree with or would never do or think ourselves, but on some level it represents dedication on his part to stick to what he believes he should do and what he should choose to do. Doesn't mean it's not stupid.
