so we have before us two questions. questions that need answering.
Ponderer posed this one: "If octopus pluralized is actually octopodes, then is platypus pluralized actually platypodes? And does this mean there's a bunch of poor confused platyp(-uses, -i, -odes) out there?"
well, ponderer, your question really strikes a heart-string with me and colton. you see when we were infants, me and colton were raised by a platypus colony. to be honest, rather than platypodes or any of those you suggested, they prefer the term platypusinators. and they think the word platypus is singularly offensive. they prefer, platypusinator. but they understand cultural differences, so they won't hassle you if you get it wrong. but you will probably be accepted as one of their own if you walk up to one and call him, the Great Magnificent Platypusinator! unless it is in fact a female platypus, in which case you're toast. you have to call them Magnificent Queen Platypusinator. i hope that clears things up.
Amber (who i'm not precisely sure who this is but i have a hunch its AJ, correct me if i'm wrong) asked us: "I was at the dentist today, and and wondering why the friendly hygienists always seem to ask you questions and try to make conversation with you as they are sticking pointy objects in your mouth, under your tongue, and halfway down your throat."
well, its simple, Bill Cosby gave us the answer in his dentist routine, they do this so that they can laugh at you. i mean, its the highlight of their day. the only other thing they do is stick pointy objects in your mouth...
