Apo, you are the pervy uncle in every analogy. If someone compared recent developments in the Mideast to something that happened in ancient China, you would be the pervy uncle.

Ogged and Unf were together. I'm more the foster parent in the analogy.

I see myself as an aunt-figure in this analogy. Probably played by Bea Arthur in her Maude days.

Neb is the Geico commercial in this analogy.

As far as role-models go that's a good one.

And gets a little tipsy and lets the kids watch The Love Boat, which mom doesn't let you watch, because it is on past your bedtime and has sex talk.

I've long thought that my role as aunt is pure indulgence.

zomg, it's just like the Asda (cheap supermarket) Christmas advert!

That commercial is exhausting just to watch. I can't believe she didn't punch everybody at the end.

Is Standpipe the Ghost of Christmas Past in this analogy?

I want to be the uncle who shows up every few years, sunburnt and shaggy, sporting new scars and showing off treasures like "just the Vermilion Heart of Opar, squeakers -- I'm running it down to Professor Nillingfeather in the morning. He says the thing's cursed but don't you believe it! If anything's cursed around here it's your Pater's rum punch." [Puts dusty pith helmet on delighted toddler.]

What's so bad about Bea Arthur in the Marine Corp?

My grandmother loved Maude, and felt deeply betrayed by Bea Arthur's part in Golden Girls.
