You must not be good at burning others, or are easily burned.

I'm considering leaving a message on a sibling's machine, saying I'm in jail and this is my one phone call. Please call the parents and let them know. I need $500 for bail, etc. Then I will have a pawn in my joke against my parents.

I've put my parents through a lot the last few years though, so not doing this might be a good present.

I don't like burning others. And constantly being in a state of mental-overload, all those false announcements today overflowed my humor-buffer.

It is convinient when "burning" is an uni-directional process. What happens if your parents get a humor transplant, see the message, and decide it will be oh-so-fun to let you spend the night in prison.

Why don't you PM them and ask? They're the friendliest people around.

Also, search the dups forum and you will know quite quickly. :D
