It's the old disappearing ink trick.  I think you are supposed to splash lemon juice on your screen to read it.

Please let me know if that works.

This post was a hoot!  I could understand everything he said but the auntie's teapot joke.  But I would not like to read this at work either.  Filters and such.

I'm not sure the teapot joke is explanable here, which may be explanation enough unto itself. ;-)

Just look up "curl one off" or "curl one out" in a slang dictionary. Pant

Sounds like "pinch one off" or "squeeze one out" to me.

BariTrom's spellings are too easy. Find something more challenging to challenge. It is easy enough to know what someone who used to have the tagline "worst speller" meant... but dang it is fun to make pun of that stuff.

Well, Brian and Dennis grab most of the more erudite pun opportunities, leaving just the soft pitches for less accomplished punsters like myself. :D

TOP TEN WAY TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY ON THE TROMBONE FORUM

1. Use lots and lots of netspeak, like OMG, LOL, ZOMG! and ROTFLMAO. Everyone finds this so funny and cute! It’s a sure way to make lots and lots of friends (IMO).

2. never ever use punctuation it just slows down the pace of your post and makes everything so much easier to read and you can get your point across faster and it makes it seem like you have so many ideas you cant get them out fast enough

3. If you start to lose an argument on logical grounds, you can always get back in the game by calling the other guy a liberal.

4. Pass yourself off as an “expert” on whatever the topic is. We all really, really respect the many degrees and vast educational experience of anonymous posters, so bring that up often.

5. Whenever possible, your posts should include references to smoking, abortion, atheism or gun control. These topics are “Forum Gold”!

6. Make personal attacks a part of your daily goals. It’s the best way to ensure a quick response to your posts. Always question the other guy's politics, religion, morals and/or sexual orientation. References to the horse he rode in on are good as well.

7. When you run out of ideas to support your position, just mention Nazis or Hitler. Better still, put these references in your signature or banner. More is better!

8. People love long, looong, loooonng posts. The longer the better. If you can’t say it in three or four sentences it’s probably not worth saying. Better yet, copy and paste long posts from other websites (but never, ever give credit to the original author. This makes you seem wishy-washy). Also, be sure to keep really long posts all in one block without any paragraph breaks. For added emphasis, write everything IN ALL CAPS or bold face or italics. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF WRITING YOUR POST!!! OMG!!!

9. speling and gramer is optianal also

10. Jack up your post count by replying with such pearls of wisdom as “I agree” or “+1”. It’s a well-known fact that post count is directly related to penis size. If you’re a woman, it’s directly related to…penis size. I dunno, YOU figure it out.
