Urb,

I'm assuming these are Seussian words. Your post triggered the spam filter.

You're a mean one, Mr Urb
You really are a heel
You're as cuddly as a cactus
You're as charming as an eel

Live Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/iwthcjJXOaM/?ref_=po_ti  Considering that I discussed Seuss's work in my dissertation (really, lol), I should be able to come up with something Seussian to say about this but I'm so tired that my creativity is all tapped out, so I'll just say Congratulations (... ok, and maybe... You have ideas in your head, you have movies as clues. You'll direct your polls in the great ways that you choose!)

Thanks, that's cool about your dissertation. I often felt for a children's author Theodor Seuss Geisel was way over my head. But, it's  nice to know his work can be appreciated on a multitude of levels.
