My tip for Minty is to use the fricken Quote box when he is quoting something, or at least use quotation marks. Not the first infraction either!

From that article:
Quote:
There is almost nothing rational about tip compensation
Lawyers are paid by the hour. Cab drivers are paid by the kilometre. But when it comes to waitstaff, there is often little to no rational connection between the services they render and the tip received. Opening a $100 bottle of wine and a $30 bottle of wine requires the same effort and yet at a rate of 15 per cent, one yields a tip of $15 and the other $4.50. The three-second action of a bartender snapping the cap off a beer bottle is expected to yield a tip of $1. Meanwhile, the heavily involved process of preparing a hot lemon and water pays nothing. “It’s simply an irrational custom that is deeply embedded in our culture,” said Marc S. Mentzer, a professor at the University of Saskatchewan’s Edwards School of Business who has written a history of tipping. Icelanders believe in fairies, Spaniards set charging bulls loose in their streets for fun and North Americans tip.

Mr. Peppermint likes more than just the tip.

She pretends to, and that's all that matters.

By the way, I suggest you never again insult a Scotsman's sheep. Just a tip.

Another tip for you Minty would be to use complete sentences to make your intended point clear to the reader. There are multiple interpretations to many of your graffiti-like posts, and this is pretty much the best/worst example yet.

Have you booked Thailand yet? When are you going?

Also, Meg White called, she wants to speak to you.

You REALLY should google the term irony

I have no idea WHICH Meg White you are even referencing despite your full run on sentences

Quick Google Search:
Actress?
Australian Cricket Player?
Canadian (Vancouver) Graphic Designer?
Director of Photography?
Nashville Based Interior Designer?
Photographer?
White Stripes drummer?


Geez why not quote Alan Smithee next... it is about as obvious as mud....

For someone who calls himself Mr. Peppermint, you sure are bitter. Ironically also lacking a general knowledge about fans of red and white striped peppermints.

Here you go Minty:
https://www.google.com/search?q=Images+ ... v8gcpl2aMc

You'll see I used multiple search criteria for you, since it seems your command of "the net" sucks rocks. It's amazing you can a find your way back here as often as you do.

Crafty buggers, I can't say you're off topic, a tip is a tip. Just don't do it with your chair, might hurt yourself........carry on.

I still don't a see (sic) any resemblance in the images
Or is your joke just a general thing since she uses some weird psychedelic image?

You also have increased the irony since your joke has an obvious prerequisite of knowing what you think you know beforehand
The only way I (or anyone else) could possibly get the joke would require us to be fans of the band

A band that folded over a DECADE ago (12 years) according to Wiki due to Megs apparent anxiety issues and has not been mentioned anywhere close to being newsworthy
A band with very few albums / songs and who appears to have not even been that popular

But yeah I get that you are obv a fanboy

You seem to over-rely on Wiki there Minty. Here's the simple two-word search you should have started with, 100% her and hardly a lack of relevant content to find, much of it current. I can imagine your confusion and crankiness though, they were never played on AM740 Zoomer Radio. Sorry, you didn't stand a chance with such an arcane reference, don't get mad. Again: sorry.

https://www.google.com/search?q=meg+whi ... k&ie=UTF-8

Also, Wiki has an excellent entry on irony. Go study it and get back to me about your use of the term, I don't think it means what you think it means, trivial keystroke errors aside.

Golden Boy gave me an EEPROM then he took it away

Let's see if B&T402 gets that reference
Most of AOL was private so not on the real internet for engines like Google
