Right To Arm Bears

A famous historic documentation mistake which led to the invention of proof readers. -- ArnoldLayne

Any reference for that claim?

The inalienable right and duty of every US citizen. And far, far more sensible that the other way around, too - bonus.

The title of a recent volume collecting many of the old "Dilbia" stories by GordonDickson?. A treacherous pun indeed, and proof that few of this sort of joke are original. -- DanielKnapp

"If you called a dog's tail a leg, how many legs would a dog have? Four, calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg." Abraham Lincoln (sorry, this discussion just reminded me of this quote!) -- BrucePennington

commie mutant bears?

I resemble that remark! - JayOsako, in the form of Rev. Reunion
