Vickster, one must have at least 3 letters in common with the preceding associated word

So i think, joke might have to wait

~sigh~ Just noticed a lot of 'em would have to go!

No, sweety, I was not. Both words contain the letters r,c, and e. If it is the association you find at fault, please read TFD's definition of mockery. (IMO, that's a lot closer association than some of them have been, but to each his own.)

Anyhow, moving right along...
