Just plain dirty.

A quickie from Malise Ruthven's "The Mormons' Progress":

"In a subsequent theophany, on September 21, 1823, Joseph claimed to have been visted by an angel named Moroni (a name that Mormons tactfully refrain from rendering in its adjectival form.)"

When Academics Attack! Quotes and marginalia.

One rule to ring them all.

Only one rule: post only quotations from published material or amusing glosses - do not attempt to start fresh, UNPUBLISHED fights with each other in the comments while attempting to justify, explain, or temporize for, an attackademic in your field.

Anything that starts to look serious or pedantic will be deleted on the grounds that it will threaten to turn things deadly dull. WWF-style (or similar) rooting only. If you want to colloq, TAKE IT OUTSIDE OF THE THUNDERDOME.
