Yeah, but that isn't the original baby jesus that's an imitation baby jesus.

How is there more than one user with the alias "baby jesus"? Is there a subtle difference between the two I'm not catching, like a   or something?

The imitation baby jesus has three spaces between "baby" and "jesus", not just one.

In other news, "imitation baby jesus" would be an excellent name for a band.

Ouch. That would enable someone to dopplegang* any name with a space in it, wouldn't it? Boy howdy.

* I like to neolog!

I like to neologize, too.

In fact, I'm doppelganging you right now, snarkout. Actually, it's [space]snarkout.

Suddenly, this belongs in the BUGS forum.

ok. this is getting spooky. Definately fodder for the BUGS forum.
how do we know you aren't doppelganging yourself?
and is doppelganging a word? i like it.

All right. I'll own up to being the baby jesus doppelganger.

I guess I need to apologize to Matt for making more work for him, too, since it's possible nobody would have noticed if I hadn't done that. (Frankly, I didn't think anyone would notice. Geez, you guys are sharp.)

Blame Orson Scott Card... i got the idea from Ender's Game.

Personally, that's my favorite way of invoking the baby jesus without his expressed written consent... ah, good times, good times... :)
