@Jake I don't believe that "goatpunchers" are necessarily violent to goats, any more than "cowpunchers" are violent to cattle. Necessarily.

@coelacanth: Fairly confident I caught it from someone I was doing jury duty with on Monday. The timing makes sense.

yes it's such a crock that you only do it once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/8/16 10:07pm melinda:

That's a lot of jury duty Jake. I've never had to yet.
Avatar    Fri. 4/8/16 10:09pm JakeGould:

Well, in NYC if you do jury duty they can’t call you again for 8 years. So I’m cool with this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/8/16 10:10pm coelacanth:

i got out of it once (legit); did criminal once, but never actually "served", besides waiting for 4 days to find out that we're not going to serve; and one grand, which also didn't amount to much.
Avatar    Fri. 4/8/16 10:12pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: They did call me for grand jury duty one day in the summer. I went, nobody was called because all the judges were on vacation, so we all went home. That’s my service there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/8/16 10:16pm coelacanth:

my last time was in kingston.ny. it was a perfect spring weather week and we sat around outside for most of those 4 days. not too bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/8/16 10:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I got a letter for grand jury duty and promptly forgot about calling the number until after the week had passed. No one ever came after me, so I presume my number never came up.
Avatar    Fri. 4/8/16 10:18pm JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: They generally don’t waste time coming after you if you don’t show up… But if for some reason you are involved in some legal case or something and they dig that up? BOOM! Nailed.
  Fri. 4/8/16 10:19pm P-90:

I like this track! But then, I only do jury duty on cases involving murdered entertainers. It's my judicial specialty.

"Tryptique" reminds me of the time my friend stuck his phone answering machine cassette into the car tape deck as we drove around the Colorado mountains. There were some very funny messages on that tape.

In an old comic book, I remember Mr. Jinks teasing Pixie & Dixie about their dueling swords. "What are you doing with those toad stabbers?" he asked. I'd never stab a defenseless toad.

But you WOULD stab an armed and dangerous one!

Goat punching vs. toad stabbing - it's a tough choice.

Perhaps you could start verbally assaulting moths. Those creepy bastards are asking for it.
