Re: "Lincoln-Douglas" Discussion

Your mom jokes in and of themselves are not inherently funny - it's the way they're set. I can't say I've ever heard one thrown at Lincoln before, so points for that? I concur.

Did anybody else already know what Scribblenauts was but didn't think it was funny? The alt text made it even worse. The joke is just "You're so X your picture is in the dictionary!", which I heard in third grade.
