  1. Crossing a line

    Yikes!!!  Sorry about that.  Not quite sure how I did, but I apologize and will re-read the rules. I'm guessing the rule I violated here was this one?  "• Violating standard rules of debate such as extreme comparisons and hyperbole" Again, I apologize for that.

    What is Bruce Lee’s favorite drink?  Wataaaaah!
  3. Crossing a line

    The fictional Frodo's burden of faith became heavier as he continued to "cross that line" through the entire journey by resisting--not always successfully--the urge to accept the power and protection of the tangible ring.  By choosing to follow living Prophets, the Latter-day Saints are also resisting all the power and protection the tangible "world" has to offer You have crossed the line.  
  4. Praying in public

    Amen!!!
  5. Puns!!!

    How do you get a tissue to dance? You put a little boogie into it.
  6. Praying in public

    Going along with Traela: I took the missionaries out for a meal not too long ago, and they told me that their Mission President had advised the missionaries in his mission to bless the food--i.e., meals they would have outside their apartment--before they left their apartments in the morning.  I also noticed this interesting blog post describing a Temple Open house where a sign was prominently displayed in the Temple cafeteria indicating:  "This food has already been blessed."
  7. DI = Deseret Industries.   http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/deseret-industries DI is somewhat similar to Goodwill.  Besides providing employment opportunities, a major emphasis is to provide experience and training that helps propel economically disadvantaged folks--regardless of religious preference--toward financial independence.

    A "steak pun" is a rare medium well done.

  14. Puns!!!

    From The Reader's Digest: My wife has suggested I should be exercising more. So I listed the exercises 
I do every day: jump to conclusions, climb the walls, drag my heels, 
push my luck, make mountains out of molehills, bend over backward, run around in circles, put my foot 
in my mouth, go over the edge, and beat around the bush.
  15. Puns!!!

    I can't believe I got fired from the calendar factory. All I did was take a day off.
