      I was about to type "chipmunk" the first time I typed the word, then
      specifically changed it. And I believe I've been consistent since then. As
      to "why?"..well, I dont know..it's not like I'm interested in asking
      philosophical questions or anything!

      Dave,

      A passing thought that must be spilled out before I head into the big
      bad city. Far as I know, a "Chipmonk" is a monk who has a chip on his
      shoulder. Boinking is out of his sphere. A 'chipmunk' on the other hand
      (or foot), found in Western America and Asia falls under the category
      'genus Eutamias.' This species is known to hold nuts within its paws. A
      real cracker.

      Why "boink" a human, when you can have a chipmonk?
      I might be kidding, but it sounds like the same question to me. But no,
      I'm
      not choosing anyone's side in anyone's argument.
