Message 1328924 - Posted: 19 Jan 2013, 1:38:54 UTC - in response to Message 1328911.

He said he can't get here on his own, we have to come get him. But we're not allowed to leave here without him. Catch-42.

But if you are posting from a smartphone, you are taking the place with you as you go .... So if you stay logged in, you can go get Godot while still waiting here for him.... I think....

My crappy smart phone doesn't work very well here.

That is Catch 22.

(rule # 22:

You must ask for a section 8 discharge to get a psych discharge.

If you ask for a psych discharge, you aren't crazy enough to be granted a section 8...)

I said what I meant. 42. As in, "How many roads must a man walk down to find Godot?"

(If you fully understand that reference, you're a true fan. It wasn't in all versions.)

I Go-dot it.

Now you're in the wrong thread. That should be in Puns o' Fun.

Whoose hat have I just nearly tripped over?

It wasn't "nearly". It ended up in the corner.

You heard his voice, what does he sound like?
Does he still have that French accent?

If Morpheus shows up before Godot, I'm going with him instead.

I took two blues. My doctor only wants me to take the white one when I do everything else she says.

I can't wait any longer. I have to go home and feed the cat. I'll be back later, unless you call and say Godot finally showed up.

[edit]And I'll bring some booze with me to make the waiting go faster.
