       Did you know: There are up to 500 fleas on one hedgehog. They are special hedgehoq fleas called Archaeopsylla erinacei...

       unless of course the villian was actually already loooking at a say...marmoset. Because we all know how marmosets can scurry about a bit like squirrels, but they don't collect nuts, some suck sap from trees, amazing little monkeys, another monkey i'd like to mention....

       ...Some lizards lick their eyes. This isn't an alternative to blinking as they do have perfectly functional eyelids however they just like the taste...

       UnaBubba, worked then didn't it. HAHA I'm not wearing any pants

       I think [UB] was trying to say, before he got cut off, "Your fly's undone your shoelaces."

       I'm wearing blue socks today. They are machine knitted with an elasticised thread to ensure that they don't bunch up at my ankles. I like to catch the bus and sit in the third row from the front by the window on the right hand side. I try and read the newspaper over the shoulder of the person in front of me. The bus is on route number 376 which leads past my home...

       Well alright, but what we'd like to know now is if your urine is blue...
Tiger Lily, Dec 02 2003
  

       Stay with the topic people. Now ADD boy what colour sock are you wearing?

       Why is it called wedding tackle? I've tried soaking it in fish guts but still haven't gotten so much as a nibble...
Captain_Ignorant, Dec 02 2003
  

       Damn you, [UnaBubba]. (You got in there between me hitting [annotate], and this page loading...)

       Think of the worm, it slides through the dirt and the dirt slides through it...

       I think we can all learn a lesson from that. Captain Aesop.

       You should get a croissant for this, but -- hey, look over there!

       The operation of ditraction is a little understood arithmetical process approximately halfway between division and subtraction.
mystic2311, Dec 05 2003
  

       Damn. I was right in the middle of an evil deed when I was ditracted by reading this post....   

       That's o.k. I've remembered what it was I was going to do - pick an idea at random and fishbone it even though it's only fault is a spelling mistake.   

       Ha! Your ditracting abilities failed you Tangent Man - now *I* shall rule the universe ha! ha! ha!
dobtabulous, Dec 05 2003
  

       Right. I proposed a Blame Indicator and was challenged on the No Magic Rule.   

       Max_Pants, the floor is yours. Explain the "super power" in scientific terms, please.
Harry Mudd, Dec 05 2003
  

       Captain_Ignorant's second anno seems to have confused Tangent Man with The Tremendous Bore, whose super power of interminable tedium causes evil villains to lose the will to live.

<rabble rousing> Yeah, Harry Mudd! Good question. Come on max_pants, let's here your 'scientific' explanation. Bet you ain't got one really, have you? No, thought not. </rr>

       GW Bush: So anyway, I said screw the steelworkers... and then I said, hey, how 'bout we send a man to the moon?
pluterday, Dec 05 2003
  

       If I fixed the spellink mistake half of these posts would make no sense. I shall leave it as a testomony to how easy people are distracted and no scientific explanation is required.

       What happens when Tangent Man meets his arch-nemesis, Asymptote Man?
mystic2311, Dec 08 2003
  

       <bad math humor>I thought his nemesis would be 'Normal Man.' Just pray that they never cross eachother.

       Oh look, there's that squirrel you mentioned!
