Jun-07-14  TheFocus: They write on the front and back of the page.
Jun-07-14  TheFocus: On my Native American passport, my name is recorded as <He Who Rises At Dawn, Yawns, Farts, Steps Out Of The Teepee, Walks Into The Bushes, Pisses On A Pretty Flower, Scratches His Right Butt Cheek, Scratches His Left Butt Cheek, Shivers From The Cold, Decides To Go Back To Bed> .

I misspelled that once on an application and have been referred to as <The Otter That Refuses To Brush His Teeth> ever since.

Just one stinking wrong-placed letter can ruin a guy.

Jun-07-14  john barleycorn: He probably holds an accordion type passport
Jun-07-14  john barleycorn: You know the story about the guy who had this tatoo which read "WENDY" on his best friend?
Jun-07-14  TheFocus: No, I don't.
Jun-07-14  TheFocus: That was odd. <CG> refused to accept my post of <No> or <Nope> .

It was used by a lot of Popes. So apparently no one.
