  1. That sort of stuff has been going on for years, just like my picking at URR. For me, at least, it’s all in fun. I guess for some it’s more serious. I used to rag my Common Pleas Judge that way (Marine 1LT in Vietnam). He’d play the game along with the rest of us and laugh at it.

    Judge: No. Did you hear why?
    VA: Yes. They found they’re too easy to kill.
    Judge: (now getting wary) Really?
    VA: Yeah. They just wait until they’re getting a drink of water and slam the toilet seat down on their necks.

That’s offensive.
