The Half-X Men

Bring them all together into one unified, rant-appeasing force

We have ourselves a mighty force of superheros who can bring justice and resolution to all of our little issues.

Professor Half-X (always caressing his pet, Peave) sends them out on their rant-appeasing missions. Johnny Spendsalot needs extra change! Spare Change Lad, this is your job! (whooosh!) Woody Harrelson needs a new hemp T-shirt! RastaMan! To the rescue! The statues in central park are missing! Motion Detector Man! Go! (etc)

       Well, I'm sure he prefers Professor > (better connotation...)
globaltourniquet, May 24 2001
  

       > is the left half of an X. And globaltourniquet gets the groan they deserve
CoolerKing, May 24 2001
  

       Yes, but V is the top half of X diagramatically, and is also half of X (Roman) numerically, thus completing the "half" concept much more elegantly!

       I just meant he prefers > to < because of the connotation (Professor Greater Than sounds better than Professor Less Than...)   

       ...damn editable message board....   

       (Peter originally called him Professor <)

       Besides the fact that he/she used the third person plural to indicate unknown gender in the singular, which has been summarily rejected by grammarians in the entire English speaking world.

       globaltourniquet: take the > and run!

       Peter had obviously changed it to V before I made my comment. Besides, I rarely do make sense! And I get fed up of writing s/he or he/she. Sod it, in future I'm going to be a male chauvinist pig and call everyone he unless it's obvious. lol

       ...ahem...upside down v is <lambda>...   

       <gamma> looks like a backwards 7   

       (in upper case greek only, for both of those letters)   

       ...ahem...

       ...nothing to do with XY-Man, I suppose? (yes, and XX-Woman)

       hippo stole my joke. *pout..   

       Well..well, Pi looks like an x turned into a table! Sorry, it's the best I could do on such short notice.
