PONTIAC = ? (Anyone know this one )
Poor Old Nacho (Cheese Dorito) Thinks Its A Cadillac

Which reminds me of a story, I actually got fired (several years ago) for doing a training session for employees after I had used the word "niggardly" at some point in my presentation.

What is wrong with using a 16th century word meaning 'parsimonious', unless you were referring to your employer at the time.

as it turns out, being fired over the use of "niggardly" is a common thing in the States. Controversies about the word "niggardly" - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Okay, that's stretching it a bit so let's keep it confined to this thread; Shall we?
I suppose it wouldn't be advisable to reply to certain posts with nothing more than "Doomed Is Pentax Steadily Heading Into Tragedy".

I know, it wouldn't be terribly constructive. But it might keep me from buying another K-3.

You saw one? And you're sure you didn't look in the mirror?!

Cool t-shirt, though. Not that I would like one. I don't want to die just yet. And I have no use of an FF
