No no no

he said:

"come on folks, fool me once, shame on you, fool me once..."

He was not offering it as a quote.  Its like if you saying this to someone you were talking to.  If you were talking to someone this is how you would say it:

"come on Charles, fool me once, shame on him, fool me twice, shame is on you"

If he was offering it as a quote he should have included a semi-colon. He was addressing you as an audience, he was not talking to me personally. So if you are fooled once, the shame is definitely not on you (the folks)

My quote offered was from my perspective, although admittedly i screwed up the beginning...i meant to say "fool you once, shame on me".

Eitherway, his rendition was wrong.  He was addressing someone other than the fooler so using "you" was VERY INAPPROPRIATE.

Heh,

Matt

But Bung, i wish to make peace.  To do this, I offer you something we should both agree is funny.  This common bond of humor between us shall mend our differences.

Wait, Bung is a marine...he won't be affected by this.  My bad :(  I mean, who would find anything like the following excerpt even remotely gut-wrenching:

***The Ranger said Tillman had repeatedly screamed out his name and shouted for the shooting to stop, the Post said. He and others waved their arms, only attracting more fire. Tillman was shot repeatedly by rifles, finally succumbing to the machine gun.***

I don't really understand your point, but then again, you've never really had one.

Looks like you are franticly trying to deflect attention away from your childish attitude, smug f*ckhead personality, and stupid reply to my "fool me once" comment.

Anyhoo, it's not really working for you, guv'nor.  Try something new.

Actually you did screw up; unfortunately, so did I.

That makes us even.  Friends? :)

Holy *&^%, this thread is right out of junior high school. Bung grow up, you don't like Matt then deal with it, he lied, so what, he's decent enough. Matt, you lied, some people are evidently choked about it. Deal with it, not everyone needs to like you.

Either way, slag off with this nonsense and lets get conversation back towards the more important discussion of the LSAT.
