Er, no. This is a Bad Idea. Remember, both Beltane and Peckensnif are Funda-Mental types. While Peckensnif is screeding about the Evil, Satanic Role Playing Games Of The Devil, Beltane will be screeding about the Christian symbolism in D&D, which will set off Peckensnif's patented Sacrilege Diatribe, which will set off Beltane's "Wicked, Evil Christians" shriek; you're not adding fire to water (cancel) or fire to gasoline (accelerant); you're adding fire to a hydrogen-oxygen mix (explosion)! Each one's own fundamentalism, blind and clueless, will act as complement to the other's. Peckensnif "proves" Beltane's right about Christians; Beltane "proves" Peckensnif is right about pagans.


which would solve Ben's problem right off. so long as Ben can inform both that he was offended at the other neither of them will consider him as serious a threat as each other. he could use Beltane to draw away the fire from Peckensniff!

I heard a review of a movie with Pachino in it that I think was called "One for the money," and that it's based on the theory that real Gambelors (I don't think rpg's qualifies as gambeling or I think you can't guarantee any strategy to work...so why am I posting this?) are driven by the risk of losing everything. Ultimately then I think anyone who is against gambeling is ultimately so afraid of that risk, that the very word is an attack of their self-esteem....or i should sleep on this...

Uhh, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? o.O

What are you getting at?

Seems like a snide remark to me. Sapphire appears to be suggesting that Ralph, previous to this, was just as rude, ignorant, and tight-@$$ed as those two (though I've seen Bill on TV, and he doesn't seem all that bad).

Ahem. May I refer all those who think Ralph only follows the whims of the "Religious Right" to this strip?

Ralph doesn't follow the party line like an idiot. He can be stubborn at times, but the man has a good head on his shoulders, and he can, believe it or not, recognize idiocy in people who share his faith, politics, or anything else.

Please, let's try to keep from making insults, even unintended ones. Ralph is a lot smarter than some people give him credit for.

I didn't think sapphire was being snide. Some people would make the wrong assumptions about RH if he didn't say otherwise. You know the human tendency to lump others together.

Aaack! 'Eee's insultin' me Lucky Charms!

You may take my Coco Puffs, but you will take my MARSHMALLLOOOOWWWSSSS! (Oh, wait, wrong Celts. Never mind.)

Seriously, though, in college I made a dessert of a bowl of those things. The Lucky Charms, I mean. It was easier than wrestling the ice cream out of their canisters in the cooler. Actually, wrestling Calbeck or BoKiana might be slightly easier than that was.

I take it that the ice cream was as hard as marble, huh?

Because they play games...with dice.

Ah, yes... Ben and several others retire to a private back room... muffled voices, the clatter of dice and occasional cheering are heard...

No, wait. If she'd seen that much, she'd be accusing Ben of consorting with minors!!! :P

No, merely LOOKING at it is enough to get my stomach unsettled...

I seem to remember stories of people actually hurting themselves on the ice cream.

Soft-serve was my frieeeend.

You know the freezer is set too cold when the serving implements for the ice cream came from Home Depot's masonry tools dept.

Seriously, I was at a party not too long ago that the ice cream was soooooo hard that we peeled the cardboard drum off of it and I went at it with a 2lb hand sledge and a 3in wide masonry chisle. (The chisle was new and I'd sharpened it.) THAT was some of the hardest ice cream I've EVER encountered. :-?
