I make no claim that this is a good entry, but it is cathartic. Share your favorite homegrown euphemism for "I wish you torment equal to or greater than what you have given me" if you've got one.
Trivial thought/picture I felt like sharing: A few months ago I was walking through the local antique store and came across an intact book of paper dolls, featuring George Herbert Walker Bush [US president, 1988-1992, "Pappy"], his wife Barbara, their dog Millie, and their grandchildren. Their six kids are mysteriously absent. Submitted here are the three children of Jeb Bush [Florida governor, 1999-present, "The Enabler"]: John 'Jebby' [fun guy], Noelle [rehabbed crackhead], and low-profile George Prescot [not the US president George Walker Bush, 2000-2008, "Huge Mistake"]. When I first saw this, I wasn't aware that the Bush clan all named their kids the same things so I thought the Jeb and George here were the sons of Pappy, not the grandsons by Gov. Jeb. (BTW, Curious George's twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara [partygirl heirs to the Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie legacy if they lose half their body weight and the other half their minds], are portrayed as babies in white frilly frocks.) I wonder if there are paper dolls about the current First Family available.
Your talk of bears mauling people remnded me of a Bible story. I've been thinking of posting a post about some of the weird Bible stories I learned about when I was young. Some are REALLY disturbing like when some kids were making fun of Elisha's bald head and then were mauled to death by bears. Praise the Lord!
I can't think of any funny "why don't you just die" comments. Yours are great!
My Sunday School teacher back in the day was a shiny-headed man and he'd always cite the Elisha story.
This minister once said, "I hope they all die of a cold."
I remember cracking up about that.
I like a lot "You, out off my island!", I've never watched those Surviver shows, so it's new to me, and the rest is really good, too. finally you're gonna speak an interesting language at work... :-)
if they sold small politician dolls over here, I'd buy some to finish them in terrible ways!
Jamie, that minister cracks me up, too.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!
