You do know what "sleeping with the fishes" means, don't you?

I hope she's alright, for if she isn't Tasmania will sink into the ocean beneath my fury

Re: Where's Miss Chicken?

perhaps she's just taking a vacation?
I seem to remember that she mentioned something about a renovation of her house. That'd surely keep her very busy and maybe too tired in the evenings to go online.
And with it being spring at her side of the planet, she's propably spending a lot of time outdoors, walking or gardening.

Or she's watching those Methos-DVDs I sent her

If you were trying to be funny, as indicated by the inclusion of , you missed by a mile.

You did, however, nail creepifying and inappropriate. Would you have said "maybe she died in a fire", "maybe she drove off a bridge", "maybe she was consumed by flesh eating bacteria"?

Not cool, especially since we've had well respected and liked posters stop posting who have actually passed away suddenly. Please don't make such comments in the future, any comments can go to PM so as not to derail the thread any further.

That's a really horrible thing to say. Do you think before you post stuff like that?

I'll guess that { Mitt } used one of these.

^ I thought Mitt just changed his position on which direction text should be facing from day to day.


If any of you guys keep in touch with Miss Chicken on Facebook, or via email or IM, can you send her well-wishes and let her know that she's missed around here? I think that would be the most helpful thing to do in this situation.

Re: Where's Miss Chicken?

LOL I love the down-under writing. How did you do that?


As for Dream's comment: I think we should give him/her the benefit of the doubt. Remember that not everyone here is a native speaker of English and a literal translation of a foreign phrase might at times turn out a bit bewildering.
For example, 'killing two birds with one stone' would in my country be understood only in the most literal sense and be severely frowned upon as an unthinkable cruelty to animals. In Germany, you instead 'hit two flies with one swatter', an expression which native speakers of English wouldn't recognize as proverbial but rather take literally.

Maybe the sleeping with fishes comment was another of these examples.
Or "the Fishes" is someone's nickname or username (not here, though - I checked), or it refers to some people named "Fish" or we are to take it most literally: she is on a vacation, drifts in a lake or in the sea, enjoying the water and dozing while being surrounded by fishies.

So, before we criticise Dream, we should first try to secure the facts instead of jumping to the worst possible conclusion, based on insufficient data.

He's given no indication that he's not a native English speaker but has given quite a posting history of unpleasent comments and behaviour towards women, so...

Insufficient data? You're acting like we haven't read his posts for ages now. But we have.

And that comment doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt, it was awful.
