Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

How about the bridge over the Firth of Fifth?

 Not bad for a bridge about to turn 125 next year.

Is that an African duck, or a European duck?

With the exception of some Prowlers (the last of which are slated to be retired by 2019), none of those aircraft types are in service anymore :(
