Default Thread titles and my very strange mind.

Sometimes I see a title of a thread and my mind comes up with some silly ideas before I have even clicked through. Two examples:

Name for lotion: My mind started listing old-man names. I settled on Larry as the best name for a lotion.

Cutting soap: I was imagining soap that was very sarcastic and would say little mean comments to people.

I tend to steer clear of these threads until more sensible answers have been given

As it turns out - Larry the Lemongrass Lotion. Sounds like a gangster with the most amazing skin.............

I thought you were going to mention the "Is this normal?", or "what are these spots?" threads LOL

Those ones require me to have a lie down and a stiff drink before I click on them

I think it would be highly amusing if we all got on and answered according to TEG's rules- first thing that comes to your mind. It would make for excellent reading, if not very helpful to the OP.

This is the first thread that made me choke with laughter.

Well, then let's include this one! I have sewn for almost 60 years. When I saw this title, I thought "Why would you give titles to thread? And if one did, what would you give?" Perhaps "Mrs." for a nice poly/cotton blend? "Dr." if it was to be used for sutures? The possibilities could be endless!

TEG - I often find that the speed of my sarcasm/twisted sense of humor exceeds the rest of my brain. I lack your willpower to not click these things. Sometimes I type the response and do something else for a while. This allows the more balanced parts of my brain to weigh in on the response before clicking post

Although now I can't get the image of a 40's gangster with a bright yellow striped zoot suit and flawless alabaster skin out of my head...
