The point here was to prove that no matter how over the top some comments are , someone will take them seriously.
Of course using guns was an easy way to do that, it 's an old trick.
This was not meant to laugh at anyone , just to point out that particularly here in Chaf things may be said that are not meant to reflect what a person think.
As a kind of coincidence some time ago at another forum a BPL member posted a picture of himself modelling a particularly goofy pack wearing a broad smile looking like he was cracking himself up.
(he has done much better since with his DIY)
At the back of the photo you could spot this painting :
My comment was that you could see his father at the back saying "Oh God why me, why me!!!"
well a couple of members took me seriously and corrected me about the real meaning of that painting.
The funny bit is that the particular member in question also posted something really silly (but not as obviously so) a few days ago and yes some took his comment as a statement.
So, yes "lighten up???"
For the record I dislike some individuals , not races or colours....however I dislike all individuals that don't like a particular race or colour and that was the point about "Mexicans"
oh, the Martians did not really invade, it was just Orson Welles having some fun for Halloween
Daryl , no need to identify yourself, let's keep that "member anonymous.
And for the "kid" thanks, at 57 that sounds better to me than you may think...
