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
