Monday's Question (No. 476)—"Call Me Unacceptable":

"I still believe we had to give him one last chance," said Myles Brand. "He failed to live up to that. … His unacceptable behavior not only continued since then but increased." Who engaged in what bad behavior? What did Mr. Brand do then?

"I'm not sure what Brand was talking about, but I can't stop thinking about the mutant man-sized rats that under Gore's Medicare plan will be used to find and devour the elderly! Sure wish I could remember where I read about this!"—Jay Wise

"Rum Tum Tugger wouldn't stop dry-humping patrons' legs, forcing Mr. Brand to reluctantly put an end to the Broadway run of Cats."—Greg Narver

"Woody Hayes shot Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Brand did nothing, as usual. The bastard."—Chris Gwaltney

"Sting whored out the dregs of his talent to a car company. When Brand complained, Sting retorted, 'Prostituting myself is my only option; how else can I get my musical message to the masses?' He then added, 'Did you notice the semicolon? I used to be an English teacher, you know.' "—Rose White

"Cats closed? And I MISSED it?"—Peter Lerangis
