*grin* Yeah, PHPbb is a bit tricky to get used to at first.

Anyway, welcome aboard. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask. We're mostly friendly 'round these parts.

Good, I'm sick of hardcore Startrek Rpers and D&D gamers calling me a grunt and treating me like an idiot. Anyway, does everyone wish me luck for my D&D session tomorrow?
P.S DO you like my signiature

Hey, you're not a grunt, and we won't treat you like an idiot, and I do wish you luck on your D&D. But no, I don't like your signature. Real women have curves.

Wait a minute, I don't think you really get the joke...its nothing to do with stick figures at all, I don't like stick figures either, and neither is it a sexist joke. What it's saying is that these days theres loads of hype about like, "j-lo booty" when really, all it is is a fat arse. And when did calling it a fat arse all change? Do you finally get the joke now?

Okay. Want my real answer?

I have an actual tushie, which is probably around the size of J-Lo's, though I haven't exactly checked. Or seen recent photos of her. Or whatever. Based on the completely insane standards of beauty in modern America, my ass is fat. I have also managed, after severe trauma in my pre-college years, to get over it and decide to deal with my weight, figure, etc in my own way. Therefore, I'm offended by your .sig, because you're basically applying standards for beauty that make me feel fat, which is none of your goddamn business. Happy now?

EDIT: That's so totally not fat, jerk.

Dude, I'm sorry, but I really think you misunderstood the joke. The joke pokes fun at modern standards of beauty and how strange they might sound a few years back. I'm very sorry to hear about your misfortunes though. And I didn't write the joke, and I'm not a jerk. Please, I was only having a little fun and to me the joke wasnt very offensive, but to avoid any further upset, I've changed it. Happy now? Or do you have a problem with this one?

The subject of weight is one where you can never win with women.

And yes, our modern standards of beauty would seem ludicrous to people, say, a hundred years ago... exactly in the opposite way which your former .sig seemed to imply. That's what was offensive. Anyway, if the light hasn't gone on yet I don't have a better way of saying it. I like your new .sig a lot more.

Well, I didn't understand the first one. It was simply nonsensical, because J-Lo isn't fat. And jokes that are nonsensical aren't usually very funny. Plus there's the parsing issue Aris brought up. Jokes that touch on very sensitive subjects (such as beauty standards in this culture) should be told with sensitivity behind them and the understanding that somebody might find them offensive, and unfortunately, .sig lines aren't a place for such sensitivity.

And dude, you *asked* what we thought. We were honest with you about what we thought.

That said...

This made me laugh. (Although part of me wonders if you mean "two-thirds of all titles" or "a third off all titles", because either of those modifications would make the joke funnier.)

And unfortunately fatism is not taken as seriously as racism or sexism these days, because we know that it is often something one can help.

... erm, judging by that picture, Miss Lopez has a gorgeous ass. Your ass-measuring standards are highly miscalibrated. Please see your manufacturer for a retooling.

No, we understood fine. It's just not funny to anyone with an IQ over, say, 80 and any degree of maturity. Please try to understand, and grow the hell up.

Well. An international fact.

That sure shows me.

I suppose I'll just take my copies of Experiments in Physical Chemistry and Quantitative Chemical Analysis and get back to my research.
