    I say we call him. I believe Tiff has his contact information. Of course, once he returns we will wonder why we summoned him.

    In the meantime, I'll be him:

    The cat is on the mat iff the cat is on the mat. Duck rabbit.

    I actually would like to know that he's ok. Thanks for the impression. Do you do Trump?

    Trump? Yes, yes I do. Our wall is going to be fantastic.

    Suppose you heard Banno was run over by a train and that he was definitely not ok, what would you then do other than just sort of knowing it? Give me your best showing of concern.

    Here's mine: Did you hear about Banno and the train? Sucks, no?

    I would start collecting funds for a Banno Memorial... maybe similar to the Ground Zero thing in NYC. Or maybe like the Oklahoma City Federal Building Bombing Memorial... it was a bunch of twigs stuck in a fence.

    From the Sydney (AU) Post: Train running over man delayed 90 minutes. Passengers irritated by delay.

    BTW, it wasn't an accident. IF the train had arrived on time, the bomb on the bridge would have exploded and the train would have crashed into the flood-swolen river. A woman had been asked to choose between throwing Banno under the train, or killing the one authentic, oppressed, colonialized, colored, transgendered, intersectional feminist on the train. Since it was a woke middle-class female adjunct philosophy instructor who did the choosing, she, of course, opted to kill the white man. (See the thread "wtf is feminism these days".)

    Since it's clear Banno will not be coming back, let us on this day hereby consider him dead. A eulogy is in order, but I am too emotional to begin. I will therefore turn the podium over to others to speak to all he was. The only thing I can muster at this difficult time is to say that unlike others who are struck down in the prime of their lives with so much more to give and so much more to say, Banno had lingered in good health far too long, having nothing more of value to give and nothing more to say.

    And now I invite others to speak...

    Per your link... Only the most philistine slobs would serve a cocktail in a plastic cup. Even if your vodka comes in a plastic bottle and costs pocket change a pint, you wouldn't drink it out of a plastic cup. (Cheap vodka is properly consumed directly from the bottle. It may be passed if it's a communion.

    I hope you buggers have somewhere to hide when he shows up.
    The whiplash of his sarcasm will tear you to shreds.
    The sharp prongs of his irony will pierce your shaking frames.

    And if you are really honest, you all miss him. X-)

    Oh @Banno, @Banno! Wherefore art thou, @Banno?

    We could also use a bit of @180 Proof and a few others from the old crowd.

    Speaking of PF members who haven't properly made it over here, I don't get why @busy (busycuttingcrap) hasn't joined in, despite actually joining last year. I recall that he, along with several others, wasn't happy about the way the TPF faction abandoned ship, but none of that matters now.

    EDIT: Maw, too, though I don't think he's joined this site at all yet.
