Well, there you have it. These are the posts that seemed to stir up the most interest. It's always interesting to see which ones interest me the most in retrospect and which ones attracted the most attention. Often the coincide, but not always. Anyhow, that's the game. Thanks for joining us for another year of good-natured fun and remember: the Platypus speaks Truth.
