    No wisecracks, okay? Let the lemmings handle the light remarks about the dark void. I dare say a pant-load of lemmings would not be a pleasant plumber’s fate!

    All this time, the lemmings were jumping into that crack… explains so much. Worse than suicide, I imagine.

    Jumping into the ocean was an old lemming tradition that, over time, faded into obscurity. It’s now become a vestigial ceremony in which they jump through a sprinkler.

    I don’t think anyone has said anything about staring into the abyss.

    Well, at least the lemmings aren’t a model airplane. You should see where those end up!

    That platform three feet below the cliff was newly installed, at the insistence of the insurance company.In order to get in an early comment, I have to get up at the crack of Don.

    @ Stan King -The picture to which you refer, although removed from the website after a while, was posted elsewhere all over the internet. Shocking to say the least! At least a NSFW warning was posted…

    Lemmings don’t really jump off a cliff. That’s a myth started by good old Disney. They filmed a nature show and ran a bunch of lemmings off a cliff to sell tickets. Think about that the next time you think of Disney as family-friendly entertainment.

    PLEASE! The last thing these lemmings want to see before they jump is a man’s butt crack.
