IJMC - This One is on Me
I have seen a lot of bar or man/woman speech translations but I think I
have yet to truly see the best one. Someone needs to sit down and write

of their billboards. Advertising the new 2000 Eclipse they say, "Be the
person everyone in the chat room thinks you are." 'nuff said. -dave
