in case that helps you picture the MO,
but it is NOT actually a scoop.

"Semi-" seldom implies exactly "one half".
Think of a semi-trailer or semi-gloss paint.

It just means "not quite all there", such as
waaaay too many of the photographers on
various forums. Everybody's a "Semi-Pro",
or so they claim. About the same as being
"semi-pregnant". Is you is, or is you ain't ?


Anywho, here's til mnyanner, a semi-useful
photo clue to ponder [dig that semi-rhyme]:

Semi-helpful hint:

What you see above represents the major
difference between the "original" and the
"evolved" versions, and their applications.

Where is that vaunted sense of humor that you claim to have and that I lack? Besides lampooning your exaggeration, I also acknowledged that the prefix semi- doesn't necessarily imply exactly one half, hence the squidge.

Burger won't bust the budget too badly.

Post #15 wasn't exactly the response I expected and it took me by surprise. Not really my cup o' tea, actually. I was kinda concerned about my taking the thread off-topic, but that is nothing compared to what your response is likely to do, and I haven't reported the post, but wouldn't be at all surprised to find that you heard from the mods or admins about it anyway.

To paraphrase Arthur Weasley, we have very different ideas about what is funny.
