Miz Rustic, I believe the role of Advisor on Things Unadvisable will become one of the critical roles of our generation and very important and I commend you for naming the unnameable position and reaching for the unreachable salary this way. Applause, kudos and paradoxes be unto you for this Manifestation of Virtue!

This just might take a revolution and I'm in on it.
(Get up-stand up, don't give up the fight.)
I personally elect myself as advisor of things that are not advisable.

Mom,

I know I have been vehement, vociferous, insistent, sometimes raucous, adamant, irrepressible, ineluctable, loud and demanding in my remarks about the campaign. I promise to stop after today (unless the Republicans win). Being a gracious winner is in my breeding.

I apologize for all those whom I have bored, annoyed, upset, disturbed, harassed, crushed, beleaguered or irritated with my rhetoric. I can only plead that a very important political turn is ahead, and we must be the best we can be for it. That makes Kerry's election terribly important.

Thank for being understanding.

of course there is no flaming on MOAB - the methane level is so high that it would be self-immolation if it did occur. Self-preservation is one commonality of most posters.

Rawpierrez, we are allus nice to one anobvther in MOAB. I bleve that it is the only thread whar flaming never occurs!

There is safety in BS, it is a place of no discipline and anarchy. I am thinking that along with the Green party thar should be a MOAB party for 2008, whar everthing said and sworn to iz automatically known to be pure BS! Tharfore, ar nation could save hunderds obv dollars by nebver needing to investigate ennything thet the MOAB President trotted out on the TV, az all Americans wuld know az soon as he pulled out the maps and grapphs thet it were all a big danged lie and not become insensed by nothin' that didn't turn out later.

I surprise myself sometimes and am sure thet I surprise you all as well wif these gems obv wisdom thet sometimes just pore outta me!

Good morning, Mother. It's Election Day in the USA.

The BS here has been outstanding, hasn't it? Excellent quality, and good quantity. The ambience is truly wonderful, the dishes are clean, the floors swept, and there are no little bits of food between the tines of the forks. Amos uses the spitoon, Little Hawk keeps his hands outside the covers, and even the toothpicks are unused!

But Mom, there is bad news. But there is also good news.

The bad news is that this is Election Day and that means the last day for the BS that has been spewing out of televisions, radios, newspapers, and even certain threads at the Mudcat Cafe.

The good news, dear MOAB, is that this is Election Day and that means the last day for the BS that has been spewing out of televisions, radios, newspapers, and even certain threads at the Mudcat Cafe. Of course, it wasn't of such quality as to appear here.

Perhaps tomorrow we can all be nice to each other again, huh, Mom?

"Beef Pattie" was a girl I knew in college. So did the soccer team, the band, most of the largest men's dorm, and the local National Guard unit (the other one).

Her brother, "Pork Patttie" was quite a hit with the women's dorms, i understand.

DEBUNKING FACT 6: McDonald's releases a letter from the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture in 1982, attesting to McDonald's burger's pure beef content. It was used as proof in a rebuttal press conference on October 1 of that year, against the rumor.

Now, I grant you, that was 22 years ago. They've had time to really change things. But to what? Kangaroo meat??

Beef patties are patties made from beef, a generic term for meaty substances deriving from cows, including, of course, gristle, chips of bone, the occasional rat's tail, and perhaps a tennis ball or two but those are accidentals.

Some cows becvome Mc Donald's burgers; all Mc Donald's burgers come from cows. But not all cows become McDonald's burgers.

Thus "If M then C" is true but "If C then M" is not necessarily true.

well - cows sh*t into straw - which is primarily cellulose - which is what most McDonalds burgers appear to be made of (by taste if nothing else) - but not all sh*t and straw are made into mcdonalds burgers.

so some showtunes are bs but not all bs is showtunes - or something along those lines.

Good Sirs, I did not study degenerate "Late Latin" but the pure, Classical language of Caesar and Cicero, of Seneca and Terence. Oh, yes, I have dabbled in the bastardy of "Church" or "Ecclesiastical" Latin, but I much prefer to leave the memory of such misspent hours buried with other such debris.

POME (AMerican Heritage Dictionary)

NOUN: A fleshy fruit, such as an apple, pear, or quince, having several seed chambers and an outer fleshy part largely derived from the hypanthium. Also called false fruit.

ETYMOLOGY: Middle English, from Old French, apple, fruit, from Vulgar Latin *pma, from neuter pl. of Late Latin pmum, from Latin, fruit.

I think I have been vindicated in my suspicion.

My inadequate memory of small Latin and less Greek reminds me that "apple" in Latin is "malus" -- as in "Ab malus ad ovo" ("From apples to eggs," or as we would say, "From soup to nuts"). "Malic acid" is derived from this, as it is the acid made from apples just as formic acid is made from ants (formus = ant).

Amos is confusing his apples and potatoes. Pommes de terre (apples of the earth) or Pommes Frit (fried potatoes, which works out fried apples of the earth) are not the same as the pome, not to be confused with a drupe or a berry or a nut. . .

An exerpt from the Robert Service poem, Babette (so I can include poetry and BS at the same time):

The poor little supper she offers
Is more than a banquet to me;
A different bif-tik she proffers,
Pommes frit and a morsel of Brie;
We finish with coffee and kisses,
Then sit on the sofa and pet . . .
At the Embassy Mumm never misses,
But pinard's my drink with Babette.

AHem....the problem is,, MMario, dear friend, that you arespeaking punctilious rigorously analytical (not to say ANAL) scientific English, while I, poor lad that I am, am speaking only in adequate French.

But you have solved a mystery for me for which I am grateful, I guess, as to where the Fr. "pommes" came from.

Pome is probably Latin. Nu?

It is so difficult keeping up with everything when you don't live in a library!!

SRS, I think it would be a fine idea to have Martin Luther's Loo guard the entrance to Popery Row, and a sort of poetic justice. Sort of ironic. We could have a little Musak playing down the hall to keep the kids quiet -- "Loo, loo, skip to my loo, skip to my loo, my darling....". Amazing what love will do, innit?

Great plan!! Thanks!!

Amos, since ML was opposed to what the popes were saying and doing, and since he salted his writing with very earthy ideas and was quite anal-retentive, perhaps the loo at the entrance to the popery row and an suitably worded sentiment would suffice?

Excellent suggestion! The Executive Board of the RCHF has met in conference and acted on your proposal by establishing Popery Row, the long corridor of exhibits just off the entrance to your right.

The wax likenesses of each Pope except John XXIII are being formed by our brilliant stable of fine sculptors and makeup artists even as we speak. Anyone chargeable with Blatant Popery, Dopey Popery, Pope-on-a-Ropery, Dopery Popery on the high Seas, Papal Staplery, or similar offenses is eligible to fill the corridor in keeping with its theme.

Should any Protestant candidates be found they will have to take the corridor to the left.

The RCHF is there for duly initialized and set into being in the long, beautiful and unblemished virtual corridors of Cyberspace with the Ruler-Waving Nun, George W. Bush, and the Ayatollah Khomeini as its first three exhibuts.

I had a first grade teacher, Miss Instebo, who would go in that collection. It took me a while to figure out how classes were really supposed to work after having her as my first teacher (they were experimenting in the Seattle schools and didn't do any kindergarten the year before, then "tracked" all of us to compare how we did. To start me out with a whacko teacher was not a great way to conduct that experiement!)
