        I hope your tongue is planted firmly in your cheek?

          I think lingua's tongue has actually been permanently surgically implanted there.

            It is a painful procedure, but she went through it with nothing but a local, a lot of nitrous, and Physical Graffiti on vinyl.

              Do you realize she's being sarcastic?

                okay, but it's a privately funded program, so it doesn't seem to make sense to wax sarcastic about it on a "tax dollars" basis.

                  Umm, that's why it's sarcastic.

                    I'm not certain of LF's meaning, but I read the "precious tax money" comment as referring to the food stamp program, rather than the photo essay project.

                      And she refers to the recipients as "moochers" in the thread title. I couldn't disagree more, either.

                          In my opinion, no. And I THINK that's the OP's opinion as well. I'm basing that on the fact that he/she "recommended" my post upthread asking if he/she was speaking with tongue in cheek.

                      Doesn't sound sarcastic to me. Maybe lingua would like to elaborate?

                        Yes, sarcasm.

                        But there are *plenty* of people on this board who feel exactly this way. With no sarcasm at all. Which is why I posted what I posted in the way that I posted it.

                      There are far bigger burdens on the public purse than those who need food stamps, but this isn't the place for politics.

                            Folks, since this is basically just a conversation about whether the original poster was or wasn't being sarcastic (she was), we're going to lock it now, since we don't think it's ever going to get around to discussing the issue.
