    Very true, to be honist.
    But i'm sure some of the 'Made up' words are just real words horridily spelt by the writer.

    I found a site that will sell it to you in decorative jars. Perfect for holiday gift-giving. :D

    Can you home-brew it, like moonshine? I'm sure it can't be legal in the U.S. anyways. We don't like smart people here.

    Yeah, but it has more of the kick if you get the internet stuff.


    And the K-Mart stuff is just a cheap rip off :p

    I don't know...internet people are never completely trustworthy. They might just throw in a little bit of madness as filler, you know, the way they do with parmesean cheese.

    k-mart can't be as bad as wal-mart's product line. I wonder if costco has it. They've always got the good stuff. ;)

    Yeah, for all you guys know I could be a 52 year old transvestite leper with a sneeze fetish.

    And, on the topic of xkcd, I have a secret crush on Randall Munroe. Me and five million other nerd girls, right? One of these days I'm going to seduce him and take him back to my apartment, where we will have a lengthy conversation about interstellar travel. ::swoon::

    Don't bother looking in Washington, DC though.
