Thursday Madness

And I thought talking cars were bad...

In light of this, I may have to redefine "I had a bad day at work, honey". Thanks to KJ for the link.

Another shocker from KJ: the Phrench climb aboard the clue train. The anomie and the ecstasy... Next up: they discover the force of gravity.

I'm sorry, this is funny. Get a life, you loser.

I wonder if this works on immediate family?

No comment.

And exactly what is the Kerry campaign's position on this?

Conclusive proof that some people do, indeed, take soccer seriously...

OK... no comment again.

Well I suppose this is impressive. But not nearly as impressive as this. Be sure to check out the letters from dum-dums. And the theme song.

Dumbya's at it again...

Maybe if the French spent more time folding paper into clever tourist geegaws and less time making people work only 35 hours a week, the world would be a better place. How about an origami version of the the Arc de Triomphe?
Am I a bad guy for thinking these things? I just want world peace.
On my terms, of course.

Ah...mon cher Don Brouhaha! Folding ze papier, eet ees no task for a Phrenchman - quelle horreur! Un piece of papier ees so rectilinear ... [shudder]

...all zose harsh, unforgiving angles du rightment, when you know how we Phrench love all things of ze Left. And ze papercuts! Surely one cannot expect a sophisticated Phrenchman like myself to place himself in a situation so grave? Already I am contemplating my surrender!

Only an ignorant American imperialist, such an arrogant and reckless course of action would suggest to moi. Frankly, I have not the extreme surprise - your cowboy President Bush has clearly your entire country deranged.

A soccer match determined by which team had the most "penalties?" The lawmaker should have tried to make the league actually play a game with a real winner. But it is soccer - not everyone loses, but no one ever wins.

Monsieur KJ:

Obvious eet ees to moi that you understand not the nuances of le futbol, no, not even in ze slightest amount. But zis is hardly surprising, n'est pas?

You silly Americans with your nasty, brutish game of football and oh-so-boring, excuse-me-while-I-run-to-7-11-and-get-a-Slurpee-and-a-nacho-burrito and also watch ze paint drying on my neighbor's fence because eet is oh-so-much-more-interesting game of baseball - I suppose I should not expect ze impossible?

...and oh by ze way, I am a man in case anyone asks.

Save a horse. Ride a cowboy?

Pucker up buttercup! ;-)

Oh, like wow. A Japanese pet rock. And, like you know, if I sort like, get of tired of the shape, I can you know, like show respect for the Earth and recycle. What a concept. A Zen thing...the Tao of paper...I am like...so blown away, you know?

Peace man.

La Femme Crickita:

That is one of my all-time favorite websites. The letters from dum-dums had me laughing so hard I almost stopped breathing the first time I saw it. One of my favorites was the one from Daniel [IT] Citigroup.

JHD: you're cruisin'...

Another dum-dum:
Lawyer who rip off artist
Spitwad not great art

Soaring through the air
Spitwad lands with tiny splat
Dum-dums now 'get' art.

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 5:13:25 PM

Yeah, Spitwad not great art. On the otter heiny, there are no two exactly alike.
Being unique counts for something. Makes 'em collectables.

Posted by: spd rdr at May 20, 2004 5:34:08 PM

Otter heiny is unique
Spitwad art on other hand
Is dime a dozen

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 5:49:01 PM

Person who collect
Spitballs have serious issues
Make artist wonder...

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 5:50:53 PM

I need to invent the internet spitwad, just so's I can plunk wiseacre Haiku artists.

Posted by: spd rdr at May 20, 2004 6:01:01 PM

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 6:48:05 PM

Spitwads are coming
No place to hide snarky fems
Big splat on your screen

(Hey Pile On (TM)!
I smell trademark infringement!)

Posted by: spd rdr at May 20, 2004 7:50:32 PM

Me don't know whether flattered or outraged. I guess I floutraged.

Posted by: Pile On® at May 20, 2004 8:08:49 PM

Snarky attorney
Tries to drum up business.
It always something...

Seems like your client
Too busy drinking brewskis
Try later, sucker...

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 8:19:41 PM

You know... I mean... I'm gonna ... you'd better...


Posted by: spd rdr at May 20, 2004 8:35:26 PM

Aw, counselor: that OK.
At least know 'floutraged' not word
Too much beer on brain...

Posted by: Cassandra at May 20, 2004 8:47:46 PM

You know it just occured to me, I should e-mail the origami boulder artist and warn him to make sure he copyrights all his art and to register his product name. I would hate to see some cheap flim flam artist knock off his product or duplicate it in some way. Yeah, I better do that.

Posted by: Pile On® at May 20, 2004 9:15:20 PM

Fine with haiku chick
Lawyer get in big trouble
