Brother Mollywhopper,What would you like to bet..
Since I used the phrase "I'll bet" metaphorically in a metaphorical sort of way... there's no real intention to "bet".
However, since you ask and in the ongoing spirit of fun in this slow news part of the off season, I will suggest this: the loser has to promptly post something nice about the winner in this thread.
Rules: The bet is just between you and me, and the bet expires at 11:59 PM on Saturday, May 25th.
The referenced post has to include a quote from one Joseph Stalin. It can't be created by going back and entering a new "old" post.
It's also possible you're just pulling my leg because you need bait for the next Yeti hunt and you don't really want to bet. Works for me. But I'm enjoying the back and forth conversation.
