This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Given some of the weed-whacker salads that I've been given at restaurants that contain just about every type of plant known to man except lettuce, I would argue that a "lettuce salad" is not a given.

Maybe the customer was differentiating from one of those tactical minatures games masquerading as a roleplaying game.

"I want an alcoholic beer."

- I nearly choked on mine when I heard that.

Apparently, there actually is non-alcoholic beer. I've seen it on TV; it, like decaffinated coffee, will never touch my lips.

Back on topic, I once heard a young hoodlum disparage a fellow miscreant as a 'penis-shaped dildo'.
The only thing I ever believed in the Bible was John 11:35.

Considering products such as the rabbit, penis-shaped dildo makes a twisted sense.

Rio Grande River and Sahara desert are my pet peeves.

Thank God a woman posted that.

I was tempted to clarify...but that would take explaining after game session conversations that one of my players always seems to drift into. (She's a really good player tho)

I can be counted on to bring all the worst of the net into any situation.

Is it bad to show one's own mother goaste and tubgirl? And to have said mother show 2g1c?
