The dirty, unattractive boat that is the initial subject of this post is like a skidmarked crib- it washes off.

A dirty, ugly, free boat is not the same as a POS boat. For example, a pristine, squeaky clean Stevenson Weekender is still a POS. it didn't sail better or become a better equipped boat by virtue of being clean.

Your failure to understand that simple point demonstrates that you may have very little mental space.

enjoy your curry.
Whew - thank you. I get it now.

The whole "wiping your dirty diaper all over your crib" thing was just way too "intellectual" for us Texans. So that's how it is up there. Nice.

[PSST - never explain a joke - no matter how lame it is. Even us Texans know that.]
