Not make resolutions

E you read my mind smile

If I felt to make a resolution though I guess it would be to be better organized. (which I have already been working on)

That's such a lame* retort that I'll delete this once you edit with more creative and better quality content smile

Perhaps due to your delight in taking the opposing position?

If the analogy had be that of an illiterate teaching writing, or even of a Senator* teaching fiscal responsibility, I may have let it slide, but there is no information about the legless man: was he born that way, or did the bus crash on the way back from the Olympic Medal ceremony and he tragically lost the use of the limbs that just hours before had made him a world champion, leaving him now to coach others in their quest for greatness smile

Inherent dislike or disdain for the subject of a punch line does not per se make the punch line funny, and Dogmatic should really try harder if his position is of him continuing to create and publish quality content

Without this self proclaimed mantle, he could have got away with a 2nd rate jibe


* the senator teaching fiscal responsibility remark would be similarly rendered inaccurate by Tom Coburn R,Oklhoma, who consistently pis*es off those on both sides of the aisle by frequently adding amendments to increase transparency in spending bills

More like him are needed in both parties

see, that's the thing about humor (or humour for you) - it's just so damn subjective... grin

Re: I resolve to... - 12/30/08 12:03 PM

From a quality of content standpoint, you redefine lameness, of the simpleton variety, with each and every post.

Let me severe the ham string of your diatribe. In your context, lame connotes being the deprived the use of one’s legs, however, my comment was legless, which also accurately describes your simpleminded retort. smile

Help more dissadvantaged people.

Spend more time with my wife, family and friends.

WATCH more sunrises and sunsets.

Work a little less and enjoy life more.

I understand that using obscure words is important to your self image, and that those who don't understand them may think of you as smart, but if you mean sever, try and spell it correctly, or you just come off as a (insert big word here) smile

Re: I resolve to... - 12/30/08 03:13 PM

Is that all you got, focusing on minutia (big word meaning small and trivial) where you have a distinct disadvantage like spelling? Your abundance of ignorance to share exceeds all expectations.

As for quality content, you wouldn't recognize quality if it fell out of the sky, landed on your face, and started to wiggle. smile

Perhaps you have not wiggled enough?

I would be more likely to react to wriggling, a writhing motion, but interesting to see you decided to go with short jerky movements when landing on my face smile

A little pent up hostility Dog?

Time to go back to your shrink?

That's a interesting retort, Pug. Although I sense your willingness to receive a money shot, it wont be from me. smile

Re: I resolve to... - 12/30/08 04:18 PM

Having read your posts, I fully understand your inability to deliver a money shot* smile

Deep seated mother issues?

If your masochistic tendencies require that we continue this, perhaps PM's would be less offensive to ACMBers in general?



*As a wordsmith, (you are obviously not a "swordsmith" laugh ) I thought perhaps you would recognize "jerky" as a male action while "writhe" and "wriggle" would be far more feminine ?

What a simpleton approach to establish a fencing analogy. I think you meant to convey examples of swordsmanship instead of a simpleminded oaf, such as a swordsmith, that tirelessly pounds on metal (or words in your case) to achieve an edge?

Still, by your comments, I'm afraid you have too much sugar in your blood for me to continue my repartee. How about them Cowboys, to keep things on a manly theme? smile Happy New Year too. smile

Re: I resolve to... - 12/30/08 05:40 PM

A Master Swordsmith has access to weapons unavailable to the typical artisan (World of Warcraft) which seems fitting, given your clumsy retort.

At least you had the awareness not to deem it "witty" repartee smile

How 'bout them Cowboys....always next year!

Happy New Year to you also......I hope your word of the day calendar is put to good use laugh

Ah, a good start to end the old year! smile
My resolve is to return to Ambergris Caye 3 times in 09. All past resolutions didn't work, but this one will!

Be safe this New Years Eve and may we all be prosperous and healthy in the coming year! (eat black eyed peas for luck)! smile

Re: I resolve to... - 12/31/08 04:09 AM

Leah Ann, you are both perceptive and able to see the obvious response!! Those two attributes do not always mesh!! And, in my case, when attempted, usually result in litigation . . .

BiIl, let me be the first to offer my appreciation for your having started this custom! It's one my family has practiced since I was a child! wink I LOVE black eyed peas - ever heard of chow-chow? That's what Gram makes to go on 'em!! wink

KC - never, never be afraid of litigation! laugh wink by the way - were you served today?????

In the Baltimore area, the standard new year's tradition is the massive consumption of alcohol and vomiting.

No Leah-Ann, I've never heard of Chow-Chow! What does it consist of?

I love chow chow, its a salsa, dont remember what it has in it.

When I first looked up Chow Chow it seemed as though it may have been a recipe for ground up Dog,which piqued my interest, but upon closer inspection, its a salsa like mixture with several differing recipes posted, most consisting of tomato and corn, plus other assorted components.

My New Years Eve tradition is to eat (or hide) everything that looks good in the house in case Mrs Pugs resolution is to put me on another diet.

You are correct sir! Mrs Pug is definitely hard work smile
