I'm hoping you've not invested in foreign owned electronics when Apple, shining example of American can-do, offers the best-of-the-best.

The period/full stop was deliberately placed outside the inverted commas/"quotes" to emphasize the end of the sentence and add weight to the following one. However, the item that required the correction was "anti-bacterial.", with the "captured" period/full stop, so I am willing to entertain your comment in this regard.
You are leading the "you are dead to me" pack. Just in case youu are wondering I am going to wait in the tall weeds, just to bust you when you slip! You have been warned ///goat lover

Edit: and its WMW076 not WMW76.

To give full disclosure the saying is actually, as sharp as a sack of wet mice. I did change it a bit, but that was because I figured the intended audience is not smart enough to get the reference.

I came up empty on a single image for "sack of wet mice" but did find two interesting hits:

1) An image from this thread appears on the first page of results for Google image searches for "wet mice," "bag of wet mice" and "sack of wet mice," and it isn't ///M-rated's avatar (either size).

2) This! (Foghorn Leghorn FTW)

I could buy an iPhone but then I would be forced to wear turtle necks.
I am not sure what will happen but this thing is annoying me. The phone constantly enters multiple characters when I press it once. I tried recreating it last time at thhe store but it wasn't acting up thenn. Like it is now.

Are you saying that the intended audience is in fact, dumber than a bag of hammers?

I'm trying to understand the heirarchy:

Dumber than a bag of hammers
vs
As sharp as a sack of wet mice
vs
Dumber than a box of rocks.

As a countermeasure, I have engaged the services of the "Audi" girl as Furby076/WMW076 protection. I am sure one withering comment from her will keep me safe from the nefarious intentions of an irate, wet furball.

I am not sure. Did WMW076 have a dress on when he typed that?

It wouldn't be the first time that I have been compared to Clark Gable either.

1) dresses allow for ventilation. As an irish guy i though you would be used to wearing dresses...er, I mean a kilt

2) Clark Gable also had horrible breath, according to the actresses who were gettinng close to him.

That's because Clark Gable was sporting a full upper and lower rack of dentures.

Gives a whole new meaning to "Hollywood Smile", doesn't it?

(yes, this is the kind of trivia one learns in dental school.)
