Dear Robert, Bob, John, Jerry et.al.:

It is my armchair opinion that "skeptibunkers" brush their teeth
left to right and vice-versa, instead of up and down as
recommended by the American Dental Association, and wear
pastel-colored knickers.

That said, may I politely propose that we bring this thread to a
close? Votes anyone?

Best wishes regardless:
