Stem: Nursery Ensemble: Oh, the Places You'll Go or Cat in the Hat
Maybe not exactly trite nonsense, but Dr Seuss was a literary genius of the nonsensical.
I am re-posting this so as not to lose the data. Last I checked it was 4 Places, 4 Cat and 1 undecided. Who was undecided? Anyway, I need votes one way or another.
It'll all turn out alright, I'm sure. :S
But the co-sleepers are right up my alley!
When wee goat#1 graduated from a baby bottle to a big baby bottle, I sent Beloved off to the store to purchase "your basic baby bottle." I knew that the baby bottle market had become hideously complex so I wanted to make sure he got the right kind. Nothing doing. He brought home five extremely complicated baby bottles.
I am going to assume that Thing 1 & Thing 2
are NOT Goats nor are they Whales.
Having stumbled onto you, and having taught you ancient and arcane skills, I want more "votes".
Democracy in action? or "inanity?
Stem: Should we have more votes
It pains me to say this, but I need to go with the classic, the Cat.
28 Urania knows I don't mean her goats, but bad republican goats ...
U, are goats as randy as this age old slur woud seem to suggest?
I suppose it depends on how on how one defines "randy."
Goats appear to enjoy sex and would if given the opportunity engage in this activity more frequently than they do. However, they do not want an over-population of wee goats - not a good thing. Bucks have been known to die from having too much sex. This usually occurs when human pimps oblige them to service too many does at one time.
Goats should never be sacrificed. They don't like it and neither do I.
P.S. My goats have expressed great annoyance at the denigration of goats taking place at Le Salon. They said if this is what a salon is like, they prefer not to partake in its conversations, which they find distinctly tedious and trite.
I am confused were the zombies at the BBC World News studios? Did the BBC capture an unsuspecting Zulu singer off the street and sic the zombies on him/her? I always suspected the BBC was a naughty crowd.
I remember the good old days of basic cable and no internet. Shaka Zulu marathon on channel 11, a miserable Saturday afternoon in February. Ah, what a different time it was! I have The Washing of the Spears somewhere...
Speaking of British imperialism, will there be another war over the Falklands?
On the other hand, nations behave very strangely when they are economically down, when they would be best off keeping their heads down and money in pocket, they get aggressive and triggerhappy, blow the inheritance...
"David Cameron: we will defend the Falklands properly"
Argentina should be in no doubt that Britain will ''defend the Falkland Islands properly'' against any threat to its inhabitants' right to self-determination, Prime Minister David Cameron said today.
I like the new Salon logo, but I think it is sexist. The mustache is fab, but it is not a look I think I can pull off. I mean, I want to be elitist philistine scum like the rest of you, but I cannot grow such a 'stache.
What should I do? And the rest of the distaff Salonistas? (Altho, I don't want to assume that any of them cannot grow a large mustache should they choose.)
I've never used the word "distaff" out loud before.
At the risk of being rude, I am not sure it was a delicacy. In the part of southern Italy from which my forebears escaped it was almost certainly a necessity. You got hold of a cow and you ate every single part of it. You never knew if you would see a cow again in your lifetime.
I wonder if there are any appropriate contexts in which to earnestly use the words
cornucopia or plethora? One thing I know, it isn't the contexts I have just read them in.
I did not say we should or should not. Conscientious grammar requires the following: Might not one say there is a plethora of tripe in the cornucopia?
The aforementioned question asked for appropriate which to my mind suggests shoulds and shalls rather than coulds or cans...but yes might is probably most appropriate. I do hope there is never a need to ask such a question however. Carry on.
But, looks like they want a cheaper penny. Might be tougher than it seems.
