Anyway, I read 3 of the 10 notes. It was basically the same things the self help community always say… you are supposed to nod your head, say *of course* and go be a better person.

I fear when you label the War on Drugs as racist, this will have the effect of dividing whites and blacks. This divide and conquer strategy has worked time, and time, again. When the government gets the white people and the black people fighting each other, the government fucks everybody. ~ I just had a customer service nightmare with tracfone. I tried to send a text, and it did not go through. I had two land line conversations with people who did not speak english very well. One told me I was out of “text minutes” and hung up. The second told me to clean the sim card. Finally, the phone worked again. I have no idea what happened… with one exception. I called a number that has recently been stolen. Perhaps there is a connection to that. Other than that, I am totally at a loss.

When it is my time, keep your silly ideas about Jesus to yourself ~ @CIAGoFundMe If she prefers slash-and-burn farming to crop rotation, she a hoe ~ Oklahoma Pastor Busted Running White Supremacist Prostitution Ring The evidence of one lady being a “white supremacist” is weak. This is a slander piece. Just saying that the super preacher was running a prostie business should be enough gossip. They don’t need to bring the other stuff up. ~ bsa bs ~ don lemon said so ~ Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo ~ Edward Ruggiero ~ ruggiero ~ vegan beer ~ homelessness ~ Maybe the translators and scribes got it wrong. Maybe Jesus did not say to love your enemy. Maybe what Jesus said was to show kindness to everyone. This is a practice thing, rather than a belief thing. ~ I thought the first few minutes of the performance were funny, but it got old fast. The WHCD audience was not laughing, which should have told her something. Miss Wolf could have used a lighter touch. After a while, the meanness was tiresome. I find the reaction … two wrongs make a right, why is this offensive but not this, etc… this reaction was about as funny as her walkoff comment about the water in Flint MI. At least she didn’t dress like a sheep. ~ Stacey Abrams has a lot of problems. Her supporters shouted down her opponent, Stacey Evans, at the Netroots Conference last year. Ms. Abrams supports this. If we are a civilized people, then we do not shout down people when they are trying to speak. ~ I will vote a secret ballot. I usually vote in the Republican primary, because it has more action. However, this time, all the Republicans are turkeys, so I may choose between the two Staceys. Here is a bit more about these two ladies, and about the sad state of radical politics performance art. ~ pretty much every stereotypical _____ criticism of _____ is projection. ~ If nothing else, this type of reasoning might make some people shut up and think. A good example is telling a homophobe that he is secretly gay, and just covering up for it. If you really want to start something, tell an sjw that they are secretly racist, and overcompensating. ~ #NationalDayofPrayer “how we laugh up here in heaven at the prayers you offer me” Randy Newman ~ ” Acting exactly like the arrogant, snobbish, condescending liberal elite that they accuse us of being simply fosters a deeper divide in our nation and drives these people further into the arms of a demagogue like Trump.” Don’t you really mean racism? ~ @Tyler_InTheKnow “I never seen a ceiling in my whole life.” -Blue Ivy Tweets are MINE. #AKA #TeamAbrams This account’s Tweets are protected.

That’s like saying you are known for your beautiful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner. ~ @Styx666Official There once was a left wing candidate gal, But in the primaries went nuts and she failed, “By an old hag” they said, “Should the nation be led”, Then they blamed Russian nazis to no avail ~ there was a young lady named gail, in the primary voting she failed, she lost to an old hag, when she had it in the bag, blaming russian bots to no avail ~ an ornery jew named sanders, was quick with the witty slanders, his campaign washed ashore, got shot down by a whore, when black lives matter took a gander ~ pictures today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. ~ Here is the poem from last night at java monkey:
caucasian opinion is like an butt hole ~ it should be kept clean quiet out of sight
unlike a preacher who covets your soul ~ and motivates you to go out and fight

My AA Sponsor Tells The Best Jokes

Posted in Weekly Notes by chamblee54 on April 30, 2018

Hear the 10 Best Albums of the 1960s as Selected by Hunter S. Thompson ~ @MomofTeen My AA sponsor tells the best jokes. Ready? A guy tells his friend: “I think my wife is dead.” Friend: “You THINK your wife is dead?” Guy: “Yeah. The sex is the same, but the dishes keep stacking up.” ~ Kim Zolciak-Biermann of ‘RHOA’ cries while stating racism isn’t ‘real’ ~ Commentary: My $200,000 Debt Should Not Disqualify Me For Governor of Georgia ~ @awildejake dude sorry but do you need help cleaning up your word soup you spilled it everywhere and it’s kind of a mess ~ Waffle House shooting victims ID’d ~ People Are Worrying That Kanye West Is Getting Radicalized By The Far Right ~ Should Asperger Syndrome Be Renamed? Unearthed Documents Reveal Disturbing Truth About Hans Asperger ~ Heretics ~ Winston Johnson ~ Civility is more than good manners. It is an essential ingredient in an effective adversarial legal system such as ours. The absence of civility would produce a system of justice that would be out of control and impossible to manage:  normal disputes would be unnecessarily laced with anger and discord;  citizens would become disrespectful of the rights of others;  corporations would become irresponsible in conducting their business;  governments would become unresponsive to the needs of those they serve;  and alternative dispute resolution would be virtually impossible. ~ To avoid incivility’s evil consequences of discord, disrespect, unresponsiveness, irresponsibility, and blind advocacy, we must encourage lawyers to embrace civility’s positive aspects. Civility allows us to understand another’s point of view. It keeps us from giving vent to our emotions. It allows us to understand the consequences of our actions. It permits us to seek alternatives in the resolution of our problems. All of these positive consequences of civility will help us usher in an era where problems are solved fairly, inexpensively, swiftly, and harmoniously. The public expects no less and we must rise to the occasion in meeting those expectations. ~ The U.S. Has Never Had a Black Woman as Governor. Stacey Abrams Plans to Change That. ~ @StephenMolldrem “There was never a time when I did not make sentences in order to make those things that I had experienced cohere and become ‘real.’” – Gore Vidal @chamblee54 the next sentence: “Finally, the novelist must always tell the truth as he understands it while the politician must never give the game away.” ~ hair truthers ~ @ChelseaClinton Hi @amychozick! Hearing there are more tidbits about me in your book which were easily fact checked and you fact checked…none of them. Here’s an easy one: I’ve never gotten hair keratin treatment. The others would have been equally easy! ~ rock road maps ~ Claims by Joy Reid’s Cybersecurity Expert Fall Apart ~ continental baths ~ dekalb history center ~ himeros ~ How Do You Control 1.4 Billion People? ~ @chamblee54 @AryehCW @OsitaNwanevu fun chat to listen to After 26 minutes, you have not, to my knowledge, said either racism or racist. This is to be commended, as those words are used entirely too much ~ @chamblee54 .@robertwrighter iow, @RichardBSpencer is a #neonazi because .@ChrisDStedman says so maybe the problem is throwing around labels with elastic definitions ~ Michelle Wolf’s Full Performance At White House Correspondents’ Dinner ~ Miss Wolf ~ ipso facto proof of racism ~ going mickey kaus ~ andrew hollarean ~ @chamblee54 @robertwrighter @ChrisDStedman queer pro tip: be careful how you use the phrase *tongue in cheek* on a lighter note, either @GlennLoury or @JohnHMcWhorter compares social justice jihad / anti racism to religion there are many similarities ~ anybody who thinks they are indispensable should put their finger in a glass of water and look at the hole it leaves when they pull it out ~ #MyEpitaphWillSay I had the right of way ~ technically, the regrettable phenomenon known as singular they is strictly a third person affair. Second person is safe for you and y’all. ~ I just got a robo call from Rick Jeffries. Do not vote for this person. ~ When I first heard of DFTD, you could not find a copy for sale anywhere. Then I helped someone move, and he had a copy. A few days later, I saw it on the 25 cent shelf at the neighborhood used book store. ~ There is a bit where he went in the mens room, after a man he lusted after had been in there, just so he could smell the odor. That scared me. ~ @Twitter is so much fun. I was going to say #Racist I typed in #Rac and waited for the auto suggest. The top choice was #RachelDolezal ~ There is going to be a backlash to the Trump hate party. ~ Do you mean Trump haters or Trump supporters who are haters? Your wording doesn’t make it clear. ~ I mean the backlash will form in the general public, as a reaction to Trump derangement syndrome. As it did to the hysterical rhetoric surrounding Bill Clinton, George W Bush, and Barack Obama. Haters don’t know when to quit, and they assume that most people agree with them. ~ If Batman was Jewish, and had a daughter, what would you call her coming of age ritual? ~ Incident in Key West: Tennessee Williams was having dinner, with a one eyed man, and a lady. The one eyed man got upset, and threw his glass eye at the lady. It fell in her soup. She dished the eye out of her soup, passed it back to the man, and said this belongs to you. ~ #BadHygieneTips was the poem for last night

The Whole World Is Concerned

Posted in Weekly Notes by chamblee54 on April 16, 2018

display of a link on this page is not an indication of content approval ~ ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE FOODS YOU BUY–NO MATTER WHAT THE FRONT OF THE BOX OR PACKAGE SAYS, TURN IT OVER AND READ THE BACK—CAREFULLY! With all the food …and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products. Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is located. It is important to read the bar code to track it’s origin. How to read Bar Codes …. interesting! This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it’s a concern to you. GREAT WAY TO “BUY USA & CANADA ” AND NOT FROMCHINA!! The whole world is concerned about China-made “black hearted goods”. Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ? If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA. 471 is Made in Taiwan . This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products “MADE IN CHINA”, so they don’t show from which country it is made. However, you may now refer to the barcode – remember if the first 3 digits are: 690-692 … then it is MADE IN CHINA 00 – 09 … USA & CANADA 30 – 37 FRANCE 40 – 44 GERMANY 471 … Taiwan 49 … JAPAN 50 … UK BUY USA & CANADIAN MADE by watching for “0” at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we can get! Pass this on to everybody on your E-Mail Contact List!! If the government won’t help us, we MUST help ourselves. ~ Glenn Greenwald on Syria “I think we ought to have learned the lesson by now that when we cheer for military action by Western governments in the Middle East, because we’ve been emotionally manipulated to be angry about some genuinely horrific act, it doesn’t end up doing anything other than making us feel good, and it usually ends up making the situation worse.” ~ Boxer Floyd Mayweather’s bodyguard shot outside Buckhead hotel ~ Don’t Give Away Historic Details About Yourself ~ Book at Bedtime ~ A Landslide of Classic Art Is About to Enter the Public Domain ~ Truth About Homosexuality in the Roman Empire ~ medical hack ~ Jones Good Ass BBQ And Foot Massage Curry Chicken Sauce ~ Biased media coverage of ‘chemical attack’ in Syria could provoke a dangerous new war ~ ‘It makes me never want to call 911 again,’ neighbor says after Stephon Clark shooting ~ my voter page ~ 9-13.000 – Obtaining Evidence ~ Owner of Third Ward’s St. Paul Fish Company claps back on bad review ~ The American Legion Halloween Dance ~ prompts ~ Was Shakespeare one of the Translators of the King James Bible? William Shakespeare lived from 1564-1616. The creation of the King James Bible began in the year 1610, the year in which Shakespeare would have been 46 years old. If you turn to Psalm 46 in the King James Bible, and if you count exactly 46 words into the psalm, you find the word “shake.” If you count 46 words back from the end of that psalm, you will find the word “spear.” It just seems too coincidental to think that it was by fluke circumstances that the 46th Psalm would be translated around the time of Shakespeare’s 46th birthday and that the 46th word from the start and the 46th word from the end would be “shake” and “spear.” My professional opinion is, Shakespeare translated that section of the King James Bible and he slipped in a secret byline to prove it was his work. ~ But Is It Wise To Be Against White(nes)s? ~ “It’s Okay to be White” Cards Discovered in Boxes of Diapers Purchased at Target ~ How Should We Check Our Privilege? ~ patriot mobile ~ Woman pulls gun during brawl in Chick-fil-A drive-thru ~ William S.

Call the Corporate office at 1-800-782-7282 and demand that she be fired!!! ~ @eugenegu Dear Starbucks, Calling the police to arrest two black guys just for being there is not an “incident.” It’s racism at its ugliest level. And it should have no place in America. ~ @sydscifi ~ This disgusting racial bias and persecution is rearing it’s ugly head because of the Racist-in-Chief, @realDonaldTrump, who sits in the White House (for now). @chamblee54 blaming this on president whatshisname is going a bit far ‏ @sydscifi Disagree. Before Trump, most racists tried to hide their true feelings. Not anymore! ~ @DennysDiner imagine the sleep lines on your face if you fell asleep on a pile of hash browns ~ @CriminalShow I listened to episode 87, Casper, Wyoming Becky is now a racial slur, used by black people to describe white women It is a cruel irony. ~ @BukowskiQuotess @BukowskiBitch @bukowskiquoteus @BukowskiDiz @Bukowski @soulhandcuffed @DailyBukowskiTw @bukowski_quote ~ if you fell asleep on a pile of hash brownsimagine the sleep lines on your face ~ @yanblaze I wish people would stop pushing that “quit your job and give 100% to your passion” narrative onto people.

The video tells us little. How long had they be there? Were they asked to leave? How did they respond to being asked to leave? Were they abusive to other customers? Often, in a story like this, there is more that is not reported. ~ In paying clueless lip service to POC causes, the demoze alienated enough white people to elect whatshisname ~ Do you know where the event is going to take place? One aspect of the Charlottesville disaster is that the park, where the event took place, is one square city block. By contrast, Stone Mountain park, the setting for your FUBU video, is 3,000 acres. This is plenty of room to keep all the players separated, where Charlottesville packed them all into less than an acre. When all the mischief makers are on top of each other, there is a greater likelihood of conflict. ~ Queer is a great word for poets. It rhymes with many useful words, like beer and rear. Others include clear, dear, fear, gear, here, jeer, Kier, leer, near, peer, sear, tear, veer, year. ~ Last night, I received a *survey* on the phone from “victory processing”. They asked me who I was likely to vote for in the Republican primary. Then the robovoice read a biographic sketch of Clay Tippins, one of candidates. I had never heard of Mr. Tippins before this robocall. The robovoice then asked me if the Tippins talk was persuasive, and asked, one more time, who I was likely to vote for in the Republican primary. This is probably the worst robocall ever. ~ pigeon overhead, fertilizer on the way, attorney beware ~ Somebody wrote once: “The only time I felt sorry for Richard Nixon is when I found out he had shingles.” ~ @kale0579 Starbucks needed to answer certain questions in their statement and make certain clarifications also, they failed to do that. 1) why were the police called and by who 2) WE ARE SORRY TO THE TWO MEN ARRESTED AND WILL CONTACT THEM PERSONALLY 3) This is not the policy of Starbucks 4- How long had the men been there? ~ 5- Were they asked to leave? How did they react to being asked to leave? How many times were they asked to leave? Had they been asked to leave this Starbucks before? 6- Did this intown Starbucks have a problem with non customers loitering? 7- Where were the men standing? Did they interfere with other customers trying to place orders? Starbucks has been advised by attorneys to say as little as possible. Anything that might have justified this incident is not being said. ~ #ImShowingMyAge is the sunday night poem at java monkey this week. A first time poet performer slept through it.

Among its other provisions, the Act contained special enforcement provisions targeted at those areas of the country where Congress believed the potential for discrimination to be the greatest.

We’ll conduct a thorough, internal investigation to see if this cop was actually responding to a high priority call, or speeding past traffic to hurry up and get some donuts or something. Similarly to the case of a woman in a town outside of Buffalo, who was walking in the woods near her house, who was shot and killed by a hunter (who was hunting after hours) who thought he was shooting a deer – we may very well take some minimal criminal action against this officer. We’ll have to finish our investigation to sort out all the details. #LonnieBarlowShow #Niggerology” (311) ~ @TweetPotato314 Jesus: *doing crossword* I’m stuck on 2 across. ~ @pdxjohnny99 The last time I danced in public people gave me money to find a cure. ~ In 2016, 574 white people were killed by police, while 266 black people were killed by police. source In 2016, there were 6,576 white homicide victims, and 7,881 black homicide victims. source If you divide the first number by the second number, you get the percent of homicides by police.

But now there’s no way to identify the “legacy” meaning of the term. Well, ‘cept neo-Nazi. ~ @zora Which reminds me, “white supremacy” has also expanded massively. Most people think KKK in white hoods. Current students and activists mean a whole system. Which is legitimate and true. But, again, conversations break down rapidly over terminology. ~ @chamblee54 i have always thought that liberal conservative racist terrorist were weasel words that should be used with much more caution, if at all… white supremacy might be a good choice for that list, I am sure there are others I prefer racial values to racism it is not either/or ~ sunday, i got in from dinner, and decided to go to java monkey.

This piece is based on an internet quiz, Dylan Thomas vs. Bob Dylan, where you are given quotes by Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas, and asked to identify which Dylan said it ~
an alcoholic is one you don’t like ~ who drinks as much as you confess
old age cafeteria morphodite ~ he who seeks work will find a rest
people seldom do what they believe ~ they do what’s convenient and repent
there’s only one day at a time to leave ~ or tomorrow will be today’s lament
he who seeks rest will find santorum ~ with agatha christie drinking sweet tea
lie in a hot bath sneaking whoredom ~ someone’s boring and i think it’s me
i’ll let you be in my dream flying ~ a thousand different angles in school
he not busy being born is busy dying ~ with grace to become community drool

They follow him this way, they follow him that way. It is the resentment, the aggrieved sense of persecution, that they respond to. That’s what US conservatism IS now. ~ @chamblee54 “It is the resentment, the aggrieved sense of persecution, that they respond to.” Liberals/Democrats reinforce this resentment by screaming racist at every opportunity, as well as the condescending attitude from hell ~ @yunus_saima dude, you guys invented a hashtag that reduces an entire side of the political spectrum to a mental disorder. y’all have no moral high ground here ~ “where self control is not welcome” sounds like a typical preacher ~ Which came first, the problem or the sooltiun?

Maybe Homo Sapiens 2.0 will correct this issue. ~ “It is the resentment, the aggrieved sense of persecution, that they respond to.” Liberals/Democrats reinforce this resentment by screaming racist at every opportunity, as well as the condescending attitude from hell ~ don’t fall into the trap of hating racism… that inevitably leads to hating people you perceive to be racists ~ “lying, narcissism, bullying, bigotry, crassness, name calling, ignorance, paranoia, incompetence and pettiness” liberals do all those things, and feel self righteous about it ~ here is the poem from last night at java monkey:
henry charles chinaski bukowski ~ would hate my sonnets if he had the chance

hank thinks poems that rhyme are a bore ~ like baseball nuns or men who cry

forever spitting out poems like hot turds ~ on the morning after beer drunk words

display of a link in this space does not indicate approval of content ~ Stop telling the lie that all queer bars are ‘safe spaces’ for diversity ~ Did Billy Graham Say ‘All Homosexuals Should Be Castrated’? ~ @krassenstein Ann Coulter suggests that we reduce mass shootings with an immigration moratorium and with mass deportations. There has NEVER been an immigrant mass school shooter that I am aware of This is pure racism. @chamblee54 Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Джохáр Анзóрович Царнáeв) was convicted of the Boston Marathon bombing. He was born in Dzhokhar Anzorovich. He appears to be Caucasian, so this might not qualify as racism. ~ @jonsteingart This is quite a correction ~ The Associated Press Thinks Jews In Mourning ‘Sit And Shiver’ ~ Correction: School Shooting-Florida story ~ sit and shiver in politico ~ @CaseyCagle I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back. ~ @CaseyCagle Discriminating against law-abiding gun owners will not solve the problem #2A #gapol ~ The Casey Cagle Affair Her departure from Cagle’s staff had to do with the fact that this couple was caught in the act at the Capitol in Cagle’s office by a secretary, Laurie Sparks. Dewberry claimed she was “tying Casey’s shoes” under his desk. … Then, to everyone’s surprise, Cagle announces he is dropping out of the race in August 2009 because of a severe degenerative spinal disorder … Cagle’s spinal injury cleared up sure enough so that he could run the 2010 Peachtree Road Race and his statewide campaign. … Recently, another tryst involving female staff members occurred in the 2009 legislative session. The scuffle that ensued ended when the police broke up the fight. Apparently, one young intern who was sleeping with Cagle found out that another staff member was riding the Cagle Express too. An open records request was recently filed seeking information on the incident, which Cagle’s office has subsequently ignored. Instead of thinking about education or jobs, Cagle was engaging in sexual relations with two young female members of his office which allegedly ended in a “Cheaters” style brawl that was only broken up when the police were involved. ~ ‏ @thistallawkgirl Casey Cagle looks like a mad scientist who just figured out how to make cocaine at home ~ @johnpavlovitz Dear #Delta. Keep going. We’re with you. Sincerely, The Vast Majority P.S. @CaseyCagle does not speak for us. He’ll understand that in November. ~ @ajconwashington Delta spokesman says only 13 tickets were sold under the airline’s group travel discount for the NRA ~ Joe Frank ~ Dr. Strangelove in the Pentagon ~ Cagle’s statement: ‘I’ve been diagnosed with a degenerative spinal condition’ ~ @classiclib3ral Every time I see someone on Twitter say they love “facts and logic” it always means they’re racist and believe eating soy turns you into a woman ~ @DanielFReal Much like those who love ‘FREEDOM’, actaully desire authoratarianism ~ Barbra Streisand Had Her Beloved Dog Samantha Cloned: Meet Miss Scarlett and Miss Violet ~ The New York Times Fired My Doppelgänger ~ godwin goof ~ Where downtown Atlanta’s highway-capping Stitch would go, in photos ~ Flannery O’Connor on Carson McCullers ~ David Hogg Is Fair Game for Critics ~ CNN host challenges Georgia Senator on Delta-Planned Parenthood claim, HQ2 subsidies ~ Why (almost) no one wants to host the Olympics anymore ~ sully on drugs ~ Embracing Black virginity in our collective fight for sexual liberation ~ The fight between Georgia Republicans and Delta Air Lines over the NRA could be a disaster for Atlanta’s bid for Amazon’s HQ2 ~ A Georgia Republican’s Unethical Revenge ~ Early Roman Catholic Church Song Generator ~ N.Y.

It is election year posturing and showboating. The effects on Delta, Delta employees and vendors, and the rest of the state, are not as important as making Casey Cagle appear to be more conservative than the other idiots running for Governor. ~ These leaders had competition In the case of Malcolm X and Mohandas Gandhi, these differences proved fatal I suspect that every well known leader had a talent for internal battles ~ @SlavojTweezek 10% of philosophers, you know, make the other half look like idiots. ~ There is substance, and there is style. You could make a case for denying Delta a tax break. Just don’t want to make a sordid spectacle of it. ~ KimKierkegaardashian @KimKierkegaard Tweet me any questions you guys have about career advice, balancing work and personal life, or struggling with despair ~ terrorist anagrams as sit rot err ~ those pesky gender issues ~ the advantages of extremism ~ Andy speaks out ~ meditation ~ fentenyl with a fentanyl tragedy unfolding, the sjw line is that no one cared about crack, bc users were black, & now that whites are using opioids people care…. spell check suggestion: fentanyl entangle ~ it’s a living “I’m just being a contrarian” “It’s a living” ~ “The ability to say things that are stupid and wrong is essential to the advancement of knowledge” ~ Dylan Thomas vs. Bob Dylan Two men, both romantic heroes in their own ways. Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas are folk philosophers. A love of words, a glory in the uncertainty of life, revelling in bittersweet lyrics. Can you tell which wise words come from which Dylan? “He who seeks rest finds boredom. He who seeks work finds rest”? “He not busy being born is busy dying”? “I can with ease become an ordinary fool. I may be one now”? “I’d much rather lie in a hot bath reading Agatha Christie and sucking sweets”? “People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent”? “Old age should burn and rave at close of day”? “There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There’s a thousand different angles at any moment”? “An alcoholic is someone you don’t like who drinks as much as you do”? “Somebody’s boring me. I think it’s me”? “There’s only one day at a time here, then it’s tonight and then tomorrow will be today again”? “Washington isn’t a city. It’s an abstraction”? “I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours”? Your Result 9/12 We believe you may a) wear shades indoors b) have your own barstool in a dark dive and c) mutter. Are we right? ARE WE? Why not explore your poetic side ~ @BoingBoing Olive Garden threatens to sue satirical twitterer for tweet congratulating it for no longer selling AR-15s ~ There was a cease and desist tweet, attributed to lawyers for the Olive Garden. It turned out to be a hoax. This comment exchange was real: “But of course their poor earning report will say “Millennials something something”, and nothing about how they have replaced food with chemical reactions.” ~ “The American Chemical Society demands that you cease and desist your defamatory statements against chemical reactions.” ~ here is the poem from last night at java monkey:
alluvial shit piss and corruption ~ excremental feculent forgotten
festering fornication suction ~ dental hygiene of johnny rotten
contaminated vessel of disrepute ~ wipe silverware clean with your shirt
ewwie gooey vomitory for the loot ~ grunt and groan diarrhea squirt
bloviating dumpster of human drool ~ colostomy regurgitation stew
pornographic penile pustule ~ oozing pollution what would jesus do
