    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 :angel:

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

    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.

    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...

    Right here, silly!
    Thread title that I saw today in the CP forum: "How much chocolate to add and how"

    My 'off-the-top-of-my-head' answer: 'Lots and lots, and how!'


    Another thread title I saw today in the CP forum: "What makes the fatty salts different?"

    My smart-alecky, off-the-top-of-my-head answer: 'Mostly their diet of greasy French-fries, of course, which makes them much fatter/more rotund (and a bit saltier) than their slimmer salty cousins. And their language is a bit saltier, too.' :p

    "Soap Fairies"- Why? They seem in short supply and better suited to leave on products.

    "How do you document a loss?"- most often with a headstone.

    Whipped-soap. I bet it's gray. Maybe even 50 shades...

    "A question of tools"- okay, which of the tools on this forum is asking questions again?


    Or perhaps they are simply referring the question we get so frequently, "Can you give me a recipe?" No, we can't, you damned tool.
