if this doesn't do numbers then i don't understand nothing.

@jackdaw_ruiz I gauge the quality of my posts by how much it makes me giggle when I think of it, and this made me proper cackle, so it freakign better

I've never pronounced it hym-in-al before... but I'm pretty sure I will for the rest of my days now.

@Matr the way I've been pronouncing it to fit the meter is just holding the n for a long time -- "n" is a voiced consonant, so you can give it sound and hold it like a vowel. It sounds like you're saying "hy-min-al," but you have your tongue on the roof of your mouth as soon as you stop making the m sound.

@Matr it's weird to have "mn" be a syllable in English, but since both M and N are voiced it's not unheard of

@jacethechicken Particularly proud of this one, eh?

You should be. I laughed again.

Funny the first time and funny every time.

@jacethechicken Tinkerbell could sprinkle fairy dust on me while I look at this or think about it and I'm confident I would be able to fly

@jacethechicken Something like that actually happened in my youth and that contributed directly to my later atheism.

@jacethechicken oh God, Beto with his Youth Pasture Energy has struck again!
