Pardon, champ. I never meant to be disrespectful or mean to you in any way. Any digs were meant in a playful ironic way, as I would with other friends. Perhaps something was lost in translation or simply because it was typed and not said in person with the usual body language indicating it was a joke. I think if you go back you will see that I have in fact usually been supportive of your analyses, though I don't always agree, or sometimes think it is a bit too much, and I have often thought a few people's responses to you were mean spirited and uncalled for.
I am not sure which post (s) exactly you found insulting, but the coneheads picture was just a result of remembering a quote from them that they were "from France", rather than whatever planet they were from, that I found amusing in the context. If you think about it, they were all in lab coats.
My earlier post about Frenchies was ironic and actually making fun of people's stereotypes. I thought the emoticon would give a clue to that..
Again, apologies if I mistakenly insulted you.
