The whole thing reminded me of an episode of The Simpsons:swillden said:That was me, Shaolin, and it was totally a joke. I thought the winking smiley would make that clear. I apologize for making you feel in the slightest unwelcome.Shaolin said:I was really enjoying come to this forum, but the last few days I'm not. The reason is because of the post someone made in the UCC Event forum. Mainly about not having a gun when attending an event.
Given how often guns are considered to be socially unacceptable it really struck me as funny that there might be a group in which it was a social error not to be armed. I wasn't trying to imply that it was actually the case, just that it would be funny if the group were snooty about it, which is why I used the snooty phrase "faux pas".
Please excuse my oddball sense of humor. It does get me in trouble from time to time.
"...Walking to a local N.R.A. meeting, Homer and Marge arrive at the entrance, where Lou and Eddie monitor the metal detector. Moe, Krusty, and Rainier Wolfcastle each pass through, setting off a red light on top. When Kearney walks through without setting it off, Eddie sends him back through, where Lou hands him a pistol. He carries it through, this time setting it off."
