    Here's an oldie but a goodie.

    A man, gazing at a portrait of a man, utters the following:

    "Brothers and sisters, have I none,
    but that man's father is my father's son."

    With respect to the man speaking, what relation is the man in the portrait?
  2. 07 Jan '06 22:42
    His son

    Ah, skeeter, my old, er, I mean, new, nemesis. Are you so immune to flattery involving your wit that you cannot recognize a compliment? Are you really that good looking that you would find it so implausible?
    Is it asking too much to be lampooned and ridiculed as freely as the rest of the hoard receives?
    Am I not a man?

    Bowmann, despite your nick, there's just no way anyone could mistaken you for a man.

    And the winner is...
    Bowmann!
    Your reactionary anger toward the guy has taken over all your waking thoughts, hasn't it? Have you perhaps considered that maybe you are in love with me, er, I mean, him? And that he, I mean, I remind you of him, and therefore you are projecting your feelings of love on him, or, maybe, me?
    I think we've made some progress here today, skeets.

    Yes, your approach was quite good, but it fell well short of any TA criteria that I teach.

    Nice to see you've regained some composure. I was hoping it wasn't all a distance-induced mirage. I meant what I said: a true comedic gem.
