Why are there so many different meanings for the phrase "magic circle?" There's the summoning circle, the cycle of the aura, the magical emblem or item, even the elemental rock-paper-scissors on occasion.

Because everyone's idea of magic is different?

Just a guess.

How does one recognize an incomplete idiot?

Count fingers, toes, ears....if anything's missing you put them in a round room and tell them to stand in a corner.

A pick-up lines go: "If I were a stalker, you'd be in big trouble," needs work.

good thing I don't write with my jaw

I don't know; if you were to wear the cloak in your picture, it could work for you.

It does help conceal my third eye.

Has it ever occured to anyone that the way Jethro Bodine (BEVERLY HILLBILLIES) eats CornFlakes is a kind'a metaphor for the show? You can say he eats out of a hyperbowl.

Shouldn't the mouth of a river be called the butt since that's where everything comes out?

Things are backward concerning butts. For instance you say you're going to 'take a crap' but you don't, you leave one. Or, 'He got his butt kicked.' usually involves a bloody nose and a fat lip. Or, 'Butt Ugly.' I find many butts quite attractive.

Things involving butts are confusing.

Sure, you come up with one thing that isn't ass-backwards and you think you've shot me down. Sheesh.

Lol, I never thought of it that way before! :lol:

On an unrelated note, I always wondered what was the origin of the "Don't you believe it" phrase from Tom and Jerry cartoons. I think it's suppose to be a parody of something, but of what I'm not sure.
