    I can always tell you're navigating when I smell burning microwave popcorn. Can I get my own desk now?

    These guys just don't understand that some things take time.

    On that note, I'm happy to announce that the new Spuds Mackenzie smiley set is in final testing is just about ready for release. We're also on target to release the "whazzzzaaaaaaaaaaaaaap?" sound effect button in Q4 here in 013.

    My family came here in 1892. Real Italians live in Italy. It's gravy, sauce is on a pizza or in a jar, god forbid if you have to eat that crap.

    +1

    Gravy is made with meat in it... Like Bolognese
    Sauce is no meat... Like Marinara or Vodka Sauce

    Only immigrants off the boat, living in the U.S. and influenced by the English language, refer to sauce (sugo) as gravy. It's an Americanism. No Italian would know what the word gravy means, except as something you make from meat drippings. What is the Italian translation for gravy?

    As a fellow Islander, I appreciated this more than most, to the tune of a fine spittle on my monitor.
