  1. You guys! She’s got to leave by Friday if she intends to get to NECSS. You’ll be able to escape after she is gone. In the meantime, try and think of a fun game to play together, like 20 Questions or Who Can Scream For Help The Loudest.

  2. Given the other post on Brandy, is this a joke? If it is, it is in poor taste. Stockholm Syndrome is what keeps many women attached to their abusers and from escaping from them.

    Such people need help, not to be made fun of.

  3. @daedalus2u:

    Someone is holding daedalus2u’s sense of humor hostage.

    I hope it’s it’s Jon Stewart or someone else really funny, and it developes Stockholm Syndrome.

    Heck, even if it’s being held by Gallagher at least it will develop a love of smashing watermelons.

  4. @Sam Ogden: I tend to refer to such as “having a laughendectomy.”

    @Skepotter: I just picture it now… “Ok, so, I’ve got all these hostages, and the police are outside. Dude, I just wanted some fuckin’ ring dings and shit ALWAYS gets outta hand. I don’t wanna go to jail, so there’s gotta be a way outta this…”

  5. @Daedalus2u isn’t that a wee bit sexist to sugest only woment can get Stockholm Syndrome?

    Anyhoo curse you Maria I read the post burst out laughing and got a lot of funny looks from my co workers.
