Appropriate emojis for this /rant of a thread.
He started another one today. Before your post, IIRC. Catch up!
Credit is due here. That thread pulled me off the Cozy Couch and on to the Rant Rack.
Single quotes are useful, for quoting within a quote (as you essentially did.)
"And he said, and I quote, 'Bob is your uncle.' I know, right?"
Make note that it would not be grammatically incorrect to use single quotes in dialogue, but in doing so, you eliminate the option to do nested quotes, at least cleanly.
'And he said, and I quote, Mmmm... never mind.'
Sac switches the freq to tower:
"Breaker Exec Tower, this here's the Arrow comin' atcha. My twenty is ten to the South, looking to join at your back door come on."
"Arrow, this here's the tower, swing it left around my back door, come around and stop and my front door come on. And I'm showing multiple traffic in my rear view. You got you a convoy?"
"We got us a connnnnnnnnvoy!"
(Dub in some boom twang rhythm at this point)
Is the Bear riding along?
Smokey's so thick out here, there is even a bear in the air!
... "Breaker breaker any traffic in the pattern please advise! Arrow 1234R straight in short final 34!"

I'm going back.
still better than kale.... wait, wrong thread.
Ok but only use Smuckers raspberry jam with PB. Ill allow apricot if needed. No grape jelly in the house!
By the way, @Capt. Geoffrey Thorpe my sister got me a t-shirt with your avatar on it... Can't wait until it's warm enough to wear it on the water
Some kind of diet junk, and what are you going back to?
My neighbor bought us a matching set. He is very clear about plans for this summer.
We don't have the pontoon boat, but we rent one a couple of times a summer up at my dad's place at lake Wallenpaupack (PA Poconos). If I'm the captain, no beerz... but if I'm not drivin' the boat, it's on.
My wife was really anti-boat until we started doing this rental thing a few years ago. Now she is pushing for one and I am the one who is holding her back....
Is peanut butter bad for, ahem, male urological anatomy? I haven't heard this before.
(I want to fight this casual "chunky peanut butter is best" nonsense, but this seemed more pressing )
Back in the day (70s), when we learned typing in high school, there was no single quote and double quote. There was just quote (") and apostrophe ('). You added emphasis with underline. Unless you had a fancy IBM Selectric, which gave you the option to use italics for emphasis. I think it could do bold too, but that was 40+ years ago.
Then you go to college, and learn programming, first on punchcards, and then text editors. No underline; no italics. No bold. So you resort to open and close apostrophe to add emphasis. And your readers understand the convention. Open and close quotes are for dialog. Open and close apostrophes are for emphasis. This serves you well when you go into the military and are introduced to the teletype orderwire. It was all caps even.
And two spaces after periods. Always.
Edit: Corrected the term for the (').
Jif Natural: peanuts, salt, sugar, molasses, palm oil
Palm oil will turn your arteries in to concrete.
We were getting the smart balance peanut butter for a time... that was pretty good. Didn't separate out into oil and goo and the name indicated it was good for you.... never checked the ingredients, though.
Just like Natural Light... I mean, it's healthy right? Natural??
I'm not opposed to regular Jif either...
Ingredients: Peanuts, Sugar, Molasses, Fully Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils (Rapeseed And Soybean), Mono And Diglycerides, Salt.
Just want to point out that if you had saved this as a .gif....
... It would be a .gif of some Jif!
I'm not going back. I'm not going there in the first place...
Arrow, park your rig and get some motion lotion. When you get through the front door, take the stairs to the right and go up to the door labeled: Tower Conversation Room. Brush your teeth and comb your hair, we gotta jaw
I always just chew the peanuts up myself and then spit them out onto the bread. That way you know it's all natural, just peanuts.
I bought the lake house first. Then the boat. Having it tied to my dock is awesome.
I think that's in the cards. It's my dad's place, but I think the siblings are gonna go in on a boat. We are up there a couple times a summer across four sets of siblings. So that's a four way chop. probably get a big enough one for 10 or 12 like the one we rent. The kids love it. I think my wife is gonna push for it this year.
Thinking about ranting about this.
That's the spirit! Rant. Rant away!!!
Way to work some Ted in to that one.
That’s a bird brained idea.
That's an apostrophe.
Nuts, in general. He said peanuts are the worst. Seems strange to me as they aren't really a nut. BTW, nuts (and other things) contribute to the formation of kidney stones. Not limited to the male of the species.
From the Jerry Wagner thread.... Sweet Tea. Ranting on this for a moment on this fine morning... I like sweets... but sweet tea makes my teeth hurt. Why... oh why... do they have to make it so that the addition of one more grain of sugar would turn the super-saturated sweet mess into a block of crystals? I know it is a southern thing and people get passionate about this... so please don't hatred me for it. But c'mon folks. Maybe a little sugar for a hint of sweetness?? Not a sack of sugar per 2 oz tea?
OK, I'm gonna run with this rant. Southerners seem to dump sugar in everything. A few weeks ago I went to a place that everyone said had good southern fried chicken. Great, says me, I like fried chicken. But, it was sweet. Like sickeningly sweet. Like dump a pound of sugar in the batter sweet. I could hardly eat it.
Fast forward a few days, and we go to a place I've been to before covid that had really good authentic-ish kung pao chicken. So I order it, and holy cow, it too is sickeningly sweat. I ask the waiter, saying it tasted different from before. "Oh yes, sir, we've changed our recipe based on customer feedback." Blech, it was hardly edible.
Two restaurants joined my "Never Again" list that weekend...
Doh. I knew something didn't sound quite right as I was typing that out, but couldn't put my finger on it. Hanging my head in shame now. Thanks.
Not all sweet tea is overly sweet...next time, order half and half .
Jif is a concoction of brown kale and unidentifiable other stuff. Peter Pan peanut butter is the only one worth the name.
(A daily double of Rant Threads)
It seems like a happy, accommodating solution would be to have a sugar shaker available for those that like to up the sweetness. I hatred sugar in almost everything that isn't a dessert food.
I'm working up to a rant about the postal service. Going postal, but with words.
