Now you, MMario, will find that your health is quickly deteriorating just as your finances are dwindling. However, you will have more free time for surgery, so there's some good news. Naturally, you'll want to keep your mind sharp so watch a lot of Fox News and ESPN. I urge you to keep your joint flexible, so start with your fingers and take up the banjo -- for a better overall workout the accordion can't be beat. Remember to...something....

MMario seems kind of newsy today. He should be aware that "retired" means that that you are tired again and/or that you have purchased or otherwise procured new round rubbery things for the wheels of your vehicle. Should he mean that he has quit the workaday fray, and should then be invited to go back to work he would be a retired retired retired retread.

I'm confused about this "retirement" thing. In common English usage, the prefix "re" means to do again. Right? Therefore, to "retire" means to "tire again". Yet, when we conclude our working lives, we are said to "retire". So, when we leave our jobs because we're tired of working, we retire and get tired all over again! It makes no sense! Wouldn't it be more logical to "untire" instead of "retire"? I think so.

Happy untirement, MMario!

That was actually quite beyond The Pale. However, there are Moher Cliffs to be seen in the Clare air than there are dingleberries to be found in Dingle. I know, I've been to both -- I even tried with a young colleen in the Con Her Pass, but I got a good Dunquin instead and had to be carried back in a Blasket, a real Blasket case.

It's not so much the Danes as in Denmark as the Danes as in sea raiders. I think Canada should just give them Newfoundland back and tell them to leave Nunavut alone. But the Greenland problem persists.

So sorry, old bean, but like 142 other countries (including Russia, China, and the DPRK) the US isn't a party to the Ottawa Treaty.

Speaking, however, as one who has seen the damage anti-personnel mines can do I must say I'm against them.

Speaking as a former Infantryman, I'm all for anything that gives me an edge up on people who are trying to kill me. This includes land mines, napalm, flame throwers, fougasse, claymore mines, punji stakes, poison gas, flechette rounds, drangon's breath, and lots of other stuff. I'm even in favor of our side using halitosis and not using deodorant if it helps.

"Just as with the VS-MK2 (33 gram explosive charge), SB-33 (35 gram charge) or PMA-3 (35 gram charge), the 29 grams of high explosive in an M14 mine is quite small because it is specifically designed to disable victims, not kill them." Full metal jacket kinda stuff, eh? Geneva RULES, man!

Got a neighbor you don't like? How about in front of the cop shop? Or a local biker bar? Perhaps use a metal pole or stand and wire it to 220? Put a concealed rat trap or six around the base?

Until gnu, I prefer the M-14 "Toe popper." It's more selective. Or put the sign on the property line and let 'em guess whose it is.

MOM wants to put political signs in the yard, but has heard that supporters of one party are misbehaving and vandalizing said signs, and the houses behind them. The trick is to place the signs where 1) vandals can't reach them and 2) so they don't know whose house they belong to.

Any ideas?

The largest "What The Fuck!" I ever caught was what I believed to be a bale of Marijuana. This was back in the mid-1980s when northern Gulf Coast beaches were favorite transfer points for South and Central American smugglers, stories of contraband being tossed overboard while being pursued by Customs officials were common, and "beachcombing for bales" was a favorite recreational activity among a certain subset of the population. Anyway, I spotted a large burlap-wrapped something floating in Escambia Bay while I was fishing from the old fishing pier. As the bale came floating by, I snagged it with my handy rope gaff and hauled it up onto the pier, whereupon I discovered it was actually a large bag of very soggy flour. That discovery was rapidly followed by a huge "What The Fuck!"

Just because I know Amos can't turn down a seafaring challenge. And I am certain that Amos will take up the challenge, considering who he's visiting. Then when he gets to Getaway he'll brag and boast about it until everyone gets thoroughly sick of it and Kendall and Jacqui toss him into Chesapeake Bay. Amos will swim to shore (unless he loses his sense of direction again) and boast about how fast he can swim. The whole Getaway crowd will then cram him into a canvas sack with several cannon balls in the bottom, tie the top shut, and threaten to bury him at sea. Amos will repent and after he's set free he'll write a song about how he survived being buried alive at sea. However, by the time it's finished Getaway will be over, the post-partum gatherings around the DC area finished, and Amos will have missed his plane.

This happens every single year. I've been there to see it. It's not pretty (but it can be funny).

I suspect the fish was named after the exclamation. Wahoos can weigh over 100 pounds and can swim at around 60 MPH. Having a fish that big swimming that fast on the end of your fishing line will definitely produce a loud exclamation of some sort. "Wahoo!" is one of the more socially acceptable of such exclamations. Naming a fish "Holy Fucking Shit!" might be met by a bit of social resistance.

Our baseball team is called the Blue Wahoos. A wahoo is a large pelagic fish in the mackerel family. They aren't really blue, but more silver with black vertical stripes. At least that's the case when they're alive. Taxidermists tend to paint mounted fish blue. Whoever named the team had probably never caught a wahoo, but may have seen a mounted specimen on the wall of a seafood restaurant. Otherwise, they'd just be the Pensacola Wahoos, without the "Blue".

Whoever named Rap's home team the Grays was likely inspired by a restaurant experience as well. He was probably abducted from a Krispy Kreme by space aliens at 2:00 AM (Krispy Kremes being aliens' favorite terrestrial hangouts, particularly at 2:00 AM). The post-hypnotic command to "Name the team after us!" was implanted shortly after the anal probe was removed, but the exact name for "us" was sort of left up in the air. It was a tossup between "Grays", "Aliens", and "Little Green Fuckers". "Grays" won out.

Our baseball team, the Grays, is interesting. Its players are short and don't hang around after the games even if they win, which is the usual case. The team appeared one day after there was a flash of light up in the hills near the ball park. We hadn't had a team in years so the city was excited to have one again.

Also, they all wear sunglasses even for night games. Odd sort of chaps, but they win ball games and the umpires ALWAYS give them the benefit of a doubt even if a doubt isn't there.

Yes, "For Fuck's sake" has pretty much replaced "For God's sake" in the modern vernacular. Therefore, one might say "Fuck" has replaced "God". As a non-theist, that's okay with me.

The word "fuck" in the expression, "Oh, for fuck's sake", is not an instance of the act being committed, but a generic form describing the spirit of the expletive. There are multiple postings on the Internet about the incredibly rich variety of parts of speech filled by the word "fuck". This particular form is one of the rarer variants, describing the general sense of impatient antagonism precipitated by competence being boondoggled or thwarted by stupidity.

As every intelligent being has experienced, trying to get something done, or solved, when countered by the popular elements of stupidity (including its subclasses bureaucracy and pigheadedness), produces a collision of energy waves in the mind which then explodes, leaving the beleaguered individual in the state of mind referred to by the expletive "FUCK!".

That one four-letter word thus is imbued with an immense cargo of analysis, planning, hope, frustration, indignation, exhortation, expostulation, and perjorative stoicism. It is in celebration and acknowledgement of this most useful of terms that the expression, "Oh, for fuck's sake" has come into widespread acceptance.
