Happy Boxing Day ...

Happy Boxing Day everybody. As tradition dictates, I gave gifts to all my servants today; my butler, my maid, my housekeeper, my chauffeur, my gardener, my laundress, my valet, and my cook. In other words, I gave myself a lot of gifts.

I'm a Consciencious Objector

How that country to the north of us can celebrate a holiday dedicated to such a violent sport is beyond me. I'd much rather do the "Peace on Earth" thing here in the good old U.S. of A. than to celebrate such a pugilistic activity whereby the goal is to concuss your opponent.
Or celebrate Festivus...

Boxing Day has nothing to do with fighting.

I think someone's sarcasm meter must have been on Empty.

You might be right, but nothing in Freddy's post suggests sarcasm.

Other than the fact that Freddy posted it, that sarcastic son of a gun. Get a couple more posts under your belt maven, and you'll "get it" like the rest of us grizzled Forum veterans do.

Blue font for sarcasm is always an option so the newbies don't get too 'fused. Just sayin'.

Didn't we discuss blue fonts back in 2010? I did a search and can't find it, but I thought that the consensus was not to use a blue font for sarcasm on the Basketball Forum.
