    OK, this may be a tough one, but the idea is to post exactly fifty words, no more and no less, so take off your shoes and mittens and get one and a half friends to do likewise and help you out, cause it ain't easy counting up to fifty!

    That is why I use Word Count. With only seven fingers and nine toes, counting becomes extremely difficult; almost as difficult as eating a meal while watching sweaty 300lb Rosie behemoths perform aerobics. But I persevered through that and will make it through this as well. I think I can

    If fifty words is too many, perhaps we should start a forty word post, where aspiring wordsmiths might polish their skills without taxing their arithmetical abilities excessively, where calculators are optional, where obscenities and insults might be hurled with abandon? But fifty words require only ten more words than forty.

    After giving into temptation and posting one hundred words, I could not resist posting other lengths. Though I would not have chosen such obvious lengths as one hundred or fifty. I would have suggested prime numbers. Perhaps a ninety-seven word post rather than one hundred? How high can ChuteTheMall go?

    Most of the other threads explain the wild and crazy antics of Rosie, Regis, Gilligan, James Bond, Hillary, Maryann, Ginger and other folk heroes and include gerbils, bad smells, flatulence, outer space, bad food, sexual innuendo, and sometimes various firearms or other weapons. But they can't fit in one sentence.

    The longest sentence in English literature was spoken by Molly Bloom, a character in Ulysses by James Joyce. This sentence is so long that in the original publication of the work, it extended for over forty pages, finally concluding with an affirmative "yes!" Incidentally, this edition, which was published by Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare & Co. fame, is believed to contain over five thousand typographical errors.

    We had done the best we could because Fred lost his balance because Jamie had called it the wrong way and it was unclear how you knew that and it obviously wasn't my fault or so Steve thought for quite some time because Jamie had called it the wrong way and it obviously wasn't my fault when the facts became clear because Jamie had called it the wrong way and, as far as I could tell, the observers were certain as Jamie explained to Gretchen over a hundred times and then we all held our ground and Will didn't figure it out and Sally realized that and I am sure Gretchen knew why and then we all held our ground when the facts became clear or so Steve thought for quite some time and I am sure Gretchen knew why because Fred lost his balance because Jamie had called it the wrong way and Will didn't figure it out so Seymour gave up or so Steve thought for quite some time and Will didn't figure it out because Fred lost his balance so Seymour gave up when the facts became clear and Seymour certainly noted that and I am sure Gretchen knew why because Jamie had called it the wrong way and then we all held our ground and Seymour certainly noted that since Sally was a loser and I am sure Gretchen knew why and then we all held our ground because Jamie had called it the wrong way since Sally was a loser and I am sure Gretchen knew why and, as far as I could tell, the observers were certain.

    I had to ban freepatriot from this thread because he just couldn't stop at fifty words and kept rambling on; unfortunately, he was a moderator and I was not, so he put this thread into a deep prison cell for over five years and it took awhile to revive it.

    I see what you did there, you posted "EXACTLY FIFTY WORDS" and didn't need fifty words to do it, getting by with only three as if there was some sort of a worldwide shortage of cyberink while you and your hippy liberal friends are trying to spoil my virtual world.

    I was surprised to see this thread bumped without a fifty word post, because the explanation was simple and even included tips for counting on fingers and toes for the numerically disadvantaged, but who types wearing mittins and who never changes his socks in this modern day and enlightened age?

    You spelled mittins wrong. That would be M I T T E N S. Not that it matters in this particular thread. After all, we are concerned with correct numbers, not proper english. Or are we? Why can't we have both? We should all learn to get along in this world of correct numbers AND spelling.

    Proper English demands that the word "English" always be capitalized, if not capitolized, irregardless or regardless of how many words are actually used or in point of fact utilized in formulating the reply or the answer within the context of the thread in question or under discussion, otherwise it's discusting.

    There once was a man from Massachusetts
    Who wanted to be President of the United States-us
    As Governor he did such a bad job, it is now called Tax-a-tusus
    The Tea Party hates him because he’s a RINO scum
    There is NO chance he will ever replace the current BUM
