Everyone interprets what comes to them according to what is in their heads - I 
actually was complimenting Barry - it was and is a fine analogy regardless of 
what anyone else thinks -  I think a lot of y'all here on FFL dislike Barry cuz 
he cusses some of you out pretty vilely from time to time.

Excellent AND hilarious! MJ didn't know how spot on his perception was, in this 
case, until you simply revealed these 10 past postings of Barry's. They very 
much speak for themselves; for repetition, staleness, dullness, and the need 
for just one more stroke, just like the last stroke. 

No wonder Barry doesn't create anything new - he's too busy wanking off to his 
golden oldies.
