This isn't much of an attack poster. I'm not even remotely offended.

Dammit, Bone ... you knew aggy was a recent convert to CT (Cosmic-Terrapinism), but you HAD to go there!
agdaniele - August 1, 2009, 11:57 pm,
Yeah! As soon as I figure out what that is, I'll thank you, Sean... or curse you.
Sean - August 1, 2009, 11:57 pm,
Either way, it's turtles all the way down.
agdaniele - August 1, 2009, 11:58 pm,
Not the snapping turtles, I hope.

I used to know a snapping turtle named Timmy. Lived free, in a pond atttached to a lake, but would come if you called him. True story. Just thought I'd share that. The folks whose cottage was next to that pond either raised him from a hatchling ...

or fed him a lot when he was smaller. What I was told is that they raised him and then let him and his sibling, Tommy, go.

LOL. Sean...you really crack me up!

The Boss (Sean) - August 2, 2009, 12:06 am,
Thanks NIK. But I swear that story is true. I was about ten-ish and I called "Timmy" for about, what seemed like forever, and this pretty much fully grown snapping turtle came out of nowhere to where I was. I then lured it onto land using ...

my finger (well out of reach of it's mouth). When it got a few feet onto land I made a noise and kinda bluff. When he truned to try to get back into the water, I lifted him up by the tail. I looked at him for a bit and then let him go. I would never
The Boss (Sean) - August 2, 2009, 12:10 am,
hurt a turtle, and he was fine. I didn't do anything else to him. Of course the "he" part of my totally true story is an a**umption on my part. The rest is as I have said.
The Boss (Sean) - August 2, 2009, 12:12 am,
Oh, uhm, "The Boss (Sean)" is because I just submitted an Obama -- "Born in the USA!" poster under that name.
agdaniele - August 2, 2009, 12:12 am,
*jaw-drop* Giving turtles a come-hither finger gesture?
Nik - August 2, 2009, 12:13 am,
Well I'm sure that's all just how you remember it. I've caught dozens of turtles of all kinds in my youth, and imagine if you stand in the right spot for long enough, you could call any name and something will come to you. HAHA!!! I'm just sayin...
agdaniele - August 2, 2009, 12:13 am,
Obama poster isn't until August 11. What the hell, Sean?
Nik - August 2, 2009, 12:16 am,
LOL. I also submitted a poster, which I expect to be rejected, by the way. Had to do it though. How long do these things usually take? Seems like forever this time.
The Boss (Sean) - August 2, 2009, 12:19 am,
Thanks NIK. Having you talk down to me like that feels a little like I'm cheatin' on the wife. But it happened more than once. And I picked up the little dude more than once. And I've caught my share of completely wild turtles. This was different.
agdaniele - August 2, 2009, 12:19 am,
The Boss (Sean) - August 2, 2009, 12:20 am,
And it was the same dude. Lot of alge growing on his back, but if you looked real careful like at the algae, you see: Harry Belefonte. And there can be only one Harry Belefonte.
Nik - August 2, 2009, 12:23 am,
Ok Boss...easy now. I don't intend to harm you.
Nik - August 2, 2009, 12:25 am,
You know that whole rule about personal attacks? Not that it really is one, but with the way things have been going around here in the last couple days, I don't know how strictly the rules will play.
