soyjoy, have you ever seen a keel? They're really neat; c'mere.
posted by yhbc at 10:37 AM on September 19, 2003


Right, then, a pirate walks into a bar with a keel in his pants, and says, "Aye, I am happy t' see ye, at that. Why d'ye ask, ye scarrulous barnacle-bilger?"

this has been a test of the emergency joke system. had this been actual humour, you would have laughed.
