Do you mean questions that aren’t appropriate for the site (jailbreak iphone?, why is the sky blue?) or questions that are personally innapropriate (what is this mysterious rash?)?

I left it vague on purpose. :)

“What’s the best place to hide a body?”

How about…

“Does my address (insert address here) sound cool enough?”
Is Fluther a front for the CIA?”
“What do you think about my body (insert nude picture here)?”
“Would my grandmother die instantly after I shoot her in the head?”
“How do I go about telling the US government that I was the one in charge of the 9/11 attacks?”
“How do I go about hijacking a plane?”

Why don’t you believe in my obviously correct and only _________? (FIll in your faith, team, star, candidate or other object of zealotry.)

As to the reason, this is a chance for a rant disguised as a question.

Why do people on fluther blah blah blah? I don’t really care what you think, I just want to blathe negatively with like minds about people who don’t use fluther the way I think they should.

(I love people who use “zealotry.”)

Personally, I could skip the luncheon or dinner menus, people’s eye colours and what they are doing on Sat. night, besides being very bored. Also the Tim Curry obsession, and the boy friend’s sister’s best friend (sorry, freind) who just copied my homework and must really like me.

@phoenyx – The best place to hide a body is in a hyena enclosure. They are the last of the great bone breakers. Their jaws are powerful enough to pulverize even skulls, femurs and pelvis (hmm, what’s the plural of pelvis?) for ingestion and their GI system breaks down material so effectively, there is practically nothing for forensic identification.

(Don’t ask me why I’ve spent so much time considering this scenario.)

I’m interested in your choice of words. “The best place to hide a body is in a hyena enclosure.”

Is it common to refer to animals as “enclosures?” I know you work with animals and I was wondering if that was a common term used in your profession.

@jp maybe she meant it like hyena cage or pen? Just guessing!

jrpowell's avatar

You are probably right. And now I feel kinda stupid.

Knotmyday's avatar

Yes. All the ones I skip. And the political ones that I should probably skip.

I heard throwing bodies in a hog pen was effective too, but I don’t know if that’s just a southern myth.

@scamp, according to the bad guy in Snatch. (In which Brad Pitt is awesome in every way.)

“Apparently the best thing to do is cut it up into six pieces and pile it all together. After you got six pieces you gotta get rid of ‘em, of course you can’t just leave it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, can ya? And then I hear the best thing to do is feed ‘em to pigs. You gotta starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped up body looks like curry to a drunk. ……………. They go through bone like it’s butter. You gotta have a few pigs though you need about sixteen, they will go through a body that weighs two hundred pounds in about eight minutes that means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute,. . . Hence the expression as greedy as a pig.”

looks like curry to a drunk… I wonder what that means? What an odd expression, don’t you think?

Sakata's avatar

I know this is an old question but I tripped onto it and can’t let it go (stupid OCD).

The name of the “bad guy” in Snatch was Bricktop.
The actual line was “looks like curry to a pisshead”
“Pisshead” is British slang for an Indian (dots, not feathers)

Sorry for bringing back old stuff but my hope was to clear up any confusion.

I’m out
