Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Amusing for sure, but on my own personal AR it would slowly but surely bug the heck out of me.

gotta put a beard on that rifle and make it smell like the horse.

we have lots of them here in Indiana county Pa.
most are good people to deal with, the young girls can range from something like the wicked witch of the west with a hair growing out of a wart to stunningly beautiful playboy material.

we always joke around here that if your bang one make sure she has had a bath and take the curry comb to find it.

Fry pies, and most of their other bakery is delish. They clean a mean window and steel the hell out of roofs too.
