Thanks part 23 reference

Postby Asterphage on Wed Feb 13, 2002 10:58 am

Is "I'm a farmer! Howdy, howdy, howdy!" intended to refer to that old Far Side where the vulture wears the cowboy's hat and says basically the same thing? That was the first thing I thought reading the new Owlie, but the line is just generic enough that it could be a coincidence...<P>------------------

The coincidentallity of this is amazing! As I read it, not only am I about to go get some sleepies (or maybe watch tv depending on how I feel after leaving the computer) but I am having a nasal winds problem requiring me to blow my nose, stupid perennial cold! Now where's that bottle...
