Whether you find this topic abhorrent or not it was more of a platform for 
myself to learn more about everyone else...  This wasn't an attempt to dumb down 
the list with my 7th grade conversation.  Believe me, your response for sure 
helped me to achieve my original goal of learning a bit about everyone :)

I should comment that my last posting on this topic might have been 
misunderstood--i.e., disgusting, etc.  and ,might  well have posed a problem in 
that there was no tone of voice, no facial expression, no note of xplanation 
about hyperbole as a form of irony.

The more temperate note offered by Dr. Waddick perhaps is to be preferred at 
this venue.  But...there's  a part of me that feels that this  "favorite" stuff 
was sort of a 7th grade suggestion.  Sorry...guys
