    Don’t let them fool you, icebergs are always a threat.

    True. That’s a place that really knows how to throw down.

    Plus they know how to throw a good defenestration when circumstances warrant.
    No one can defenestrate a piano like the Dutch, this is just a plain fact.

    What I like the most about this is that at some point it became so common for people and items to be chucked out of a window that someone felt like we needed a word for this.

    Does that mean that to not get thrown out the window is to fenestrate?

    Y’know — folks just standing around fenestrating, then someone decides to defenestration than?

    Sometimes small openings in medical devices are referred to as fenestrations and it always makes me chortle to hear that.

    Well, it gets more specific. Defenestration is the genus with many species. For example, gardy loo means to throw human waste out the window.

    The Lorax is a small piece of all of us that grows smaller as we progress from the innocence of childhood to doing PowerPoint presentations for a living.

    Why, just why.

    This did make me laugh:

    Police said that they had seen a video of the reveal and could confirm that the child was a boy, NBC Los Angeles reported.

    You guys make me laugh with startling regularity and I would like to be able to spork people for particularly funny or poignant thoughts. And I CAN NEVER DO THAT BECAUSE THE FREAKING SPORKER THINKS I DON'T SPREAD ENOUGH COMMENTS!!!!! That drives me nuts on here because this is a small group. But still freaking funny and also pretty thought provoking. Everyone just pretend you have about 3 extra sporks from me.

    This is why it is customary for gentlemen to escort a lady down the street by walking closest to the dwellings, while the lady walks closer to the street. Any refuse from houses would hit the gentlemen.
