I've decided to be nice and not limit this to just Friday.

I know many  if not all of us have those moments when a snide remark slides through out brains.

I just had one while browsing "recent posts."

Down in the Server Forum someone asked, "What does this mean?"

And after a moments deliberation I almost replied,

"Well when a Mommy Flamingo and a Daddy Flamingo decide that they want to have a Baby Flamingo the Daddy Flamingo takes the Mommy Flamingo and go find the Stork........."

And this inspired me to try and start some week end fun.

So come on, have at it, gives us your best Snide Remarks!

 

And for the record, no, I have not been smoking anything and it's still a couple of hours till happy hour starts.  ;)

My specialised subject!

I could share many an anecdote, but I will tell my favourite from many years ago, whilst working as a Training Manager for a call centre company in Scotland.  Start of every course, I was wheeled out to do the "welcome to the company" blurb, usually to very bored teenagers, but I always tried to make it as funny as possible, just to keep up some interest.

Following one upbeat welcome, I asked if there were any questions, and self nominated Leader of the team of five lads at the back of the room stuck his hand up,

"Yes?" I said brightly

"Are you gay?" he asked in his heaviest Glaswegian accent as his friends reacted like it was comedy gold.

"I don't really see the relevance of the question", I replied, "but rest assured whether I am or not, I am possessed of great taste, so I can assure you, you're certainly going to be free of any overture".

Having said that, there was the other time when a team I was a part of had a particularly raucous team meeting with an idiot of a manager we all had to put up with, after he'd finished answering a question I'd asked, it was perhaps a little naughty of me to say, "thanks for that boss, shame I was actually looking for a full answer, rather than an answer from a fool".

 A few years ago I was at a club and someone said something about condoms in SL and a guy asked why they would be needed, so I piped up that if you had sexytimes with a chick in SL who wore prim ladybits, then you would end up with a prim baby if you did not wear a condom.

He totally believed me.

Thanks, I spent a long time laughing at this.

2) I searched every map and atlas I have for "Scotland" and I could not find her; posting lat long would help.

3) Perhaps the millennials thought you were speeding?

4) Are you?

My SL boss dislikes prim babies and one of his dancers had the temerity to produce one.  She appeared at the club, babe in arms, and he asked me to get rid of 'it'.  She approached me to share her joy and, after an 'oooh and ahhh', I suggested that it would not be a good idea to expose the tender prim to the loud music and cigarette smoke in the club.  She poofed and I never saw said prim again.

Snide remarks are just a get out card  rather than being honist or ignoring,.When the come back from someone who is upset by it, the ussual reply is "was just joking, you got no sense of humour?" pfft

We have been wondering where your sense of humour is.   ;)

Just to make sure, I Googled "Snide Remark" and, by reading the various definitions that popped up, realized that it simply means to point out someone's ineptitude and/or stupidity.  In which case, I've done that to people far too many times to count or even pick out one which might be considered outstanding.  Perhaps the various moderators which have issued me warnings/bannings because of them would like to chime in?

Perhaps it's only an inept/stupid person that would see it as so.
