I never understood the term shortening. What, exactly, is getting shorter?

There's an old joke that goes with that, but if I told it I'd have to give myself an infraction for inappropriate posting.

Maybe you could swap out some of the words for "nicer" words. Like, instead of saying something against the rules, you say "popsicle" or "firetruck".

I'm getting a Seinfeld vibe here.

I remember that old joke!......Mag told it to you didn't she? Mag is the best at down and dirty!

I don't have much to add here this morning.....but I will post this Public Service announcement for Otis.

"Wire Cutters! Don't leave home without them!"


Regards!...you guys have fun here today.....I'm going back to the Lounge for a drink and a fat cigar!

EDIT: Otis demanded I post a better shot.....after all, this is serious work and needs to be treated as such?

Apparently we have to discuss that kind of thing with our pet Moderator. Or Blue, if that South Dakotan is asleep again.

Heh, I just noticed 'canon' in amongst the tags.
Who did that?
I don't remember any poster using that vile word!

We'll just assume that it was used somewhere in the literary or musical usage and not photography related.

Saved by the bell! Thanks!

Now I can go back to drooling over some K and FA lenses that I don't need...
Oh, you are most welcome ... and now we should discuss my bill for that service "like".

I usually take 10% on the money that I saved you and that you would have spent in this matter, but I will cut that in half since it's THIS special thread involved. You see, I am a nice guy, really.

I do have a slight problem, though. Was that a "645Z", 645D" or a film "645", you were troubled by? Please advise ASAP.

PS - We can also discuss my future "666" save/"like" service, but since your soul is involved here, I'll have to ask for at least for a 7.5% commission.

I really don't understand this thread? Is it about something or is it like Seinfeld....about nothing? I only want to talk about squirrels...and Velveeta...is there any thread here where that is all they discuss? I feel sort of lost here....maybe that note on the door was appropriate for me?


Regards!

Absolutely not! All are welcome here with one caveat; discussion about anything directly photography related must be kept to an absolute minimum so as to maintain the integrity and purity of the thread.

EXACTLY.

Oh, I was looking to repair an old defect film body, of course, and use a pinhole as my only lens...

Ah, now, that wouldn't amount to much! My soul is hardly in mint condition, and has been sold several times over
