How come Mars Bars are so much more popular in the UK, and why can I never find them but people say they exist here too?

The situation is somewhat confusing. The US Mars Bar is not the same as the UK Mars Bar. The US Mars Bar is chocolate coated nougat, and almond-flavored. The UK Mars Bar is chocolate coated nougat and caramel, and malt-flavored. The US Milky Way is much more like the UK Mars Bar, while the UK Milky Way is much like a UK Mars Bar, but without the caramel.

Thank you for the welcome, MacAgent! As you can tell from my first post, I intend my contribution to be as relevant and insightful as ever. Yes, indeed.

I sometimes wonder the same thing.

I *hope* that our attention to detail is visible in the design of these new forums... new buttons and little things like that are coming soon, and then the look will be complete, and, i dare say, better than any other forum on the net.

And, if they call hockey groupies "Puck Bunnies", what do they call football groupies?

And furthermore why would any chic want to be a basketball groupie (aside from the cash flow, ya'll)? So Allen Iverson can rap about how he slapped your ass and called yo mama a ho?

Baseball players...well, I don't think they have groupies. They tend to put them all to sleep by the 3rd inning.

I'm officially boycotting smilies/emoticons/graemlins because they make such a terrible mess of the text. I hope nobody using them has ever complained about throbbing buttons in Mac OS X?

Pigskin Bunnies? Bunnies Who Like Odd-shaped Balls?

On a related matter, did anyone else notice Dennis Miller ripping the reading glasses off his face and throwing them to the floor when the director cut suddenly to the commentators last Monday night? What a vain man.

I'd do it if I got to snuggle on the sidelines with Ed Norton.

I dunno, but why aren't there any mint-scented dish[washer] detergents? Or are there, but I've not heard of them?

Actually, the UK Milky Way bar == US Three Musketeers bar.

Do NOT try the "Banana Milky Way" variety. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

If a tree falls on someone in the woods, and there's no one else around, does the splattered human make any noise?

Well, once he's splattered that's pretty much it.. so, no.

Well of course no sounds will eminate from the post-splatter humanoid...but during the process of getting crushed most humans will ehh, scream. Thus my question...

But here's another one: If Turkeys are so full of steroids and hormones, how come guys like me who've been eating Turkey on a regular basis for decades, don't look like mutated versions of Arnold Schwarzenneger?
