"For beginners, penguins, re-beginners, social types and the more low key runners for whom Boston is a tea party, not a race in the near future"

I don't know what I can add to that, other than the following:

1. I know this is obvious, but this is not a closed forum, its open to everyone to read and post. Don't be surprised if you see people for whom Boston is a race in the near future posting here.

2. The main forum is still GRD. Daily threads are still in the GRD, race reports are still in Race Reports, etc. This forum is here for the topics specific to beginners, penguins, re-beginners, etc., and not for general topics which belong elsewhere.

ETA: yes, there were some guest posts this morning. The trained baboons we use to run the site were apparently drinking decaf when the new forum was set up, that shouldn't have happened. Sorry about that.

The Scenic Route ...well, it's about time! :D

Thank you mods and modettes.
I'm glad you chose tea party instead of cream pie. :wink:

Why you ask? Because it's what he does. :roll:

I actually think the first cartoon is pretty funny. It reminds me of "the bush" the cops hide behind in Dog River (Corner Gas). :D

ETA - I posted something, but then thought the better of it. You can't MAKE someone have social skills. So forget it.

I didn't see anything wrong with them. I thought they were funny!

It's all about perspective! :D

Nothing's wrong with those cartoons.
What's wrong with Madame Bourette? THAT is the question. :wink:
