when the folks play the "age card" in disagreements... for example.. "you can't even do that for your own mother, whose eyesight is failing, and is weak. and yadyadyayadadad.... oh please!


I love the way comedian Kathy Griffin incorporate the "age card" bit into her routines.

A new rant for me: Those "experts" on TV that tell me some common food is going to kill me. Dr. Spaz goes after apple juice claiming that it's got arsenic in it. Now some bozo reporter tells me rice (American grown rice, at that) has arsenic in it. Son of a B, is there anything out there that's safe to eat except maybe purified dirt? The spud brains that pass this hogwash along are bad enough, but the vacuous yummy air heads that believe these jokers are even more irritating! Think I'll go indulge in some fatty bacon, now. It just tastes better when it's going to kill you!

Pet Peeve: When people asks, 'How come?' instead of 'Why?'...I mean, take a look at those two words 'How' and 'Come' now, put them together...no matter how you look at them, they don't come out as 'Why'...drives me nuts!

You don't put 'How' and 'Come' together because it isn't like “manure.” You know, it's, it's “nure,” which is good. and a “ma” in front of it. MA-NURE. When you consider the other choices, “manure” is actually pretty refreshing.

AND those who say, 'Should of, Could of, Would of' instead of...'Should HAVE, Would HAVE, Could HAVE' Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

Ya got me! So, "Why nobody went to Ed's Ripoff Report". Wait, that doesn't look right. I'm mean, it could be right. Nuts, I never have been good at grammar. Now I'm confused and somewhat depressed. **sips Yukon Jack and coffee**

It's beginning to make sense now!

When you see the flash and hear the sound at the same time, it's close! Blew up a street lamp here. It must have been one heck of a bolt if it woke you up in Ohio, too, DB!
