"If" ??

Is there really any need for an "if" in your first sentence?  While taste ranges widely from person to person, it's hard to imagine who would think that photo was tasteful.

Thanks for delaying my lunch.  Happily, I am not a vengeful person, and so will not treat you to some of the more vivid images from a website devoted to pics of victims of helicopter accidents.

puge -

What the?  What is WRONG with you?  What are you hoping to accomplish by continuously posting offensive photos, ostensibly from the same website bosox uses?  And why on earth are you attacking nytimesperdu now?  Is being completely offensive to everyone your goal in life or what?

I'm putting your ass on ignore - I'm so sick and tire of looking at all the photos you post I could scream - the only thing worse than the photos is the content of the posts.

Geez, Puget, you want to keep the Film Club thread focused and intellectually vibrant, but you come over here and toss in Diane Arbus-y pics and nonsequiturs?  (OK, the fat lady did have some glancing intersection with the theme)  The thing with "writing" is painting the pictures with words, right?   Not that anyone's on a roll here, but still...

My point was only that it would be a good discipline
to stick with WRITING, in this thread, rather than
using pictures.  The point of this thread was, in part,
a respite from the world of Cut N' Paste


You're probably write, er, right. Right?

I'm removing the pics...

I apologize...

His garage.  From there, it was inside for a hot toddy and then some traditional missionary position intercourse with his wife, into the silk pajamas after a quick wash, and on to bed - never dreaming that meanwhile, 2500 miles a way, a sinister and vile man known as "The Shrub" was plotting....

Linguistically speaking, it was a nukular holocaust.  But the affairs of the larger world beyond his own immediate concerns had never been all that compelling for Leroy.  As long as there was money for silk pajamas and maintenance of the winch required for a 400 lb. man to have missionary sex with his wife, what did it matter what a bunch of talking heads on the tv were up to?  Any fool could see that country was actually being run by....

an evil shape-shifter with a sneer on its face and a pacemaker in its chest.  "Oh well," thought Leroy, shrugging, "Just as long as I'm the Decider, everything will be okay no matter what.  Why?  Because I have a Direct Pipeline to God."

Little did he know that the pipeline, though direct, was the sewage line.  Even angels, it seemed, had to take a dump on occasion.

Which begs the question -- how many angels can take a dump on the head of a pin?
