Ah, no offense meant, old chum. But a word to the wise: if I was trying to prove the term ludicrous, I might not turn an Old Testament Hebrew noun into a modern English verb. And even if I did, I’d conjugate it correctly because I had the benefit of a classical education. :lol:

Keep voting!

As of right now Plato and Aristotle are tied and the rest are pretty close too.

I'll probably close this poll sometime this afternoon, so get on it!
