    Charlotte, I've been bothered by your signature line but you're probably right. I should get a grip. I've been paying too much attention to news stories about pets who are thrown out of car windows, pets left by the roadside to fend for themselves just because their humans are tired of them, pets deliberately poisoned by hostile neighbors who set out tempting treats laced with cyanide, etc. And I've seen all too many animals who were roadkill.

    I'll keep on telling myself I'm too touchy and try to get a grip.

    I have no idea who told you you your signature line is offensive. If it was a moderator, I'm not the one who raised the issue. I'll admit that the thought did cross my mind a couple of times though.

    This isn't meant as an attack on you. You're someone trying to deal with MS, and it's hard enough to cope with life's stresses when you have MS without having to be upset over a difference of opinion about a forum signature line.

    I hope we can agree to disagree and carry on.
    Thanks Ann. As we all know humour is subjective. Yes i have called the spca wjen a saw a dog in the neighbours back yard on a sweltering hot day & he had no water. Even called about a teen that hit dog with a skateboard.

    Ive called CPS on families that abuse, beat their childern.

    Noooooo i am not one who stands by idely when i see abuse, i take action.

    Thanks Agate. I really did not mean to upset amyone.

    My Lord, I have my cat Sidewinder. i wonder how many would habe taken him in, fed him with an eye dropper, then with a baby spoon & then looked for a smal bowl.

    He was 3 weeks old when my daughter found him logged in between a fence.

    Over the years he has caused so much damage to the carpet in livingroom, but i would NEVER get rid of him.

    He is my compadre.

    Peace

    Since many people here are upset by your signature line, why not just change it to something else? Some people here change their signatures periodically--it's easy to do.

    P.S. My real-life name isn't Ann. Maybe you've confused me with stillstANNding, who is sometimes called ANN here. Actually I'm one of a couple of Joans. nuthatch is another Joan, and there may be others I don't know about.

    I feel the same way. I am sure that someone feels the same way about mine. Everyone has different thoughts about what they consider humor.

    Agate is right:" You're someone trying to deal with MS, and it's hard enough to cope with life's stresses when you have MS without having to be upset over a difference of opinion about a forum signature line".

    Thanks Gary. Your comments are appreciated.

    Question. are you the Gary that tweeked or found me the avatar of the Kitty with the lime on its head?

    Peace to you.

    Charlotte, I agree with both Ann and Gary. My sentiments exactly, so not much need for me to repeat them. The first time I saw it I just kind of did a "double take" and after reading it that time I have not bothered to read your signature line, just your post.

    Thank Virginia.

    Peace to you

    It is humor. It is obvious that it is humor. There are enough not funny things said in this world that we can all take offense at. This does not rise to that level.

    Did you ever listen to "Car Talk" on NPR? Two MIT educated brothers had a real car repair shop in Cambridge. They had a call in show about car problems that was a riot. I remember one time that started talking about a restaurant that was near a highway. Lot of road kill. They started naming the dishes that could be served at the restaurant. It was dark comedy for sure but we almost died laughing.
    In peace,

    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says:"Oh Crap, She's up!"
