I got a radio tuner and now I’m opening garage doors from my apartment like a mad man (more like I did it by accident because I was trying to pick up my thermostats lol)

:rofl:

It reads like a mad-lib, and you can read it on a loop and it makes sense (well as much sense as the quote in the Laughing Man avatar).

INVENTOR OF THE AIR CONDITIONER: it’s super heavy
ME: Put in once and that’s it?
IOTAC: no u take it out every season
ME: so there’s handles?
IOTAC: no.
ME: oh.
IOTAC: the back is covered in a thousand exposed razor blades

However, Geoffrey Pullum, the linguistics professor who originally defined the term snowclone , states that “X-gate” is only a “lexical word-formation analog of it, an extension of the concept from syntax into derivational morphology”.

A number of Round Tablers were inveterate practical jokers, constantly pulling pranks on one another. As time went on the jokes became ever more elaborate. Harold Ross and Jane Grant once spent weeks playing a particularly memorable joke on Woollcott involving a prized portrait of himself. They had several copies made, each slightly more askew than the last, and would periodically secretly swap them out and then later comment to Woollcott “What on earth is wrong with your portrait?” until Woollcott was beside himself. Eventually they returned the original portrait.

OMFG that is hilarious!
