Attention: Monsieur StriBlue

You have brought great disappointment and insult upon me. Hereinafter, you shall discover my reply, beginning with your slanderous statements toward me and further besmirchment of my character:

I quote: "How Dare you insult me publically, you cretan... I shall seek satisfaction forthwith and challange you to a dual as the gentleman that I am under the Marquess of Quinsinbury Rules. I shall chose the weapons and they shall be super soakers of high velocity. If you are man enough to face this challege my opinion of you might change ...although I suspect not ..you Knave"

You demand satisfaction. You shall have satisfaction. Please be advised as to the following; (i) any omissions or deletions are deliberate and shall not be considered for subsequent challenge(s). (ii) Offer is open to persons eighteen years or older; (iii) no doubling coupons or further discounts shall be allowed; (iv) offer good while supplies last or until February 28, 2002. Typographical/spelling/grammatical errors are not the responsibility of the aggrieved, challenged respondent

I hereby reply, you scurrilous reprobate -

I am the recipient of ‘Expert’ Medal, with Oak Leaf Cluster, as well as Combat SuperSoakerMan Award. In the latter part of the Twentieth Century, I was TDY to the Super Soaker R&D team at Hasbro HQ. Currently, I am permanent party at Super Soaker Training Command, Providence, RI, and am a member of SOST1 (Special Operations Soaker Team One.) I maintain my proficiencies with all past Soaker models; I am currently Senior Training Officer for the Max-D-6000 Model.

You are no match for me

I laugh at your challenge I summarily discharge your feeble attempt to draw me to the field of honor without so much as a wave of my elegantly gloved hand

I hereby instruct my second, The Potentate of Penguinia, to contact your second, FredA the Tall, of Dennis, to finalize details of your impending demise…er, satisfaction. Further, I instruct The Librarian at Oxford to dispatch an Associate Librarian, with accompanying dictionari and thesauri, from which to allow you to draft your epitaph to the world. Perhaps you should use your last post!!!! :hehe:

En Garde’!

(Historical Reference)

'Marquess of Queensberry' Rules

Code of rules that most directly influenced modern boxing. Written by John Graham Chambers, a member of the British Amateur Athletic Club, the rules were first published in 1867 under the sponsorship of John Sholto Douglas, ninth Marquess of Queensberry, from whom they take their name.

John Sholto, 9th Marquess of Queensberry

Born in 1844, John Sholto Douglas succeeded his father in 1858. He married Sibyl Montgomery, daughter of Alfred Montgomery, in 1866. They divorced in 1887. John Sholto remarried in 1893 to Ethel Weedon but the marriage was annulled one year later. He served in both the Royal Army and Navy and was representative peer for Scotland to the House of Lords from 1872 through 1880. He is probably best known for introducing, in 1865, the code of rules that governs modern boxing. He is also known for the libel suit brought against him, by writer Oscar Wilde, after the 9th Marquess publicly objected to the liaison between his son, Lord Alfred Douglas and Wilde. The suit, which was eventually dropped by Wilde, eventually led to the conviction of the writer for immoral conduct. The 9th Marquess' eldest son, Francis Archibald Douglas, Viscount Drumlanrig, predeceased him in 1894, so the titles passed to his 2nd son, Percy Sholto, upon the 9th Marquess' death in 1900.

Ah, finally a sporting event that is easy to explain to my 1'st grader. Though he might get in trouble if he emulated the behavior of his elders.

You know, I'd rather see a REAL wet T-shirt contest instead of these two hornery old bassturd's going at it but, it has been a quiet winter.

I put money on Fix for connecting with the first shot but I think the Ironman will have the stamina to be the last man standing.

:hehe:

So... I take it from a translation of your post that you wish to back down!..Honor forces me to accept your desguised attemp to appologize... and I do so, therby allowing you the opportunity to avoid the administration of a coup de gras of a beam of water administred to your face from 5 inches... a wise move on your part and not surprising from a accuratly measured guage of your courage. You are dismissed!

I was about to reply to this thread with an enthusiastic retort of "oh boy, a cat fight". But on rereading the Marque de Fix's post I see that my name has been drawn into this sophmoric display. If I must be sucked into this I prefer an attempt to protect my good name and refer to me as "Phred the Impalor". In spite of the humiliation I am always proud to serve the Right Honorable.

Right Honorable

You should revisit and carefully RE-read my reply. There is no measure of backing down, nor any manner of apology contained therein; in fact, I welcome your challenge and look forward to the moment when I deliver the coup de grace.

To The Impaler: You ain't gettin' out of this sophomoric display so easy, Bub
- p.s. - it's 'Marquis'

Twas a passionate discourse on the rigors of curling and hallowed social organizations in a thread on the UFT meeting of last week. See what happens when the fish leave town and the waters freeze over.

Darn; Dbl Haul beat me to the post.

Legend has it that the force generated by the FixMeisters SuperSoaker is such that a grown man will be knocked off his feet and driven like a dust bunny...rendering him senseless and disoriented!

Now that's a thought. Better yet why don't we charge admission to not put on the event. Kinda like the brilliant extortion scheme of our good govner not to allow casinos in MA if the out of state casinos pay us tribute.
