Sorry HJ you just aren't watching the SciFi network I see and haven't seen the black guy strangling me. Captn said: "Oh God ! A cross between the Sta-Puff Marshmallow Man and the Clown from Spawn." That reminded me of what I look like
here.

Casper the friendly ghost in a space suit?:D Moon wear, I suppose.;)

It was the best I could do. I was a bit tired. :D Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread.

Ne Pot is M... I can say that... ...

Fools tread, where men wise to fear rush in.

I see all the words at once then try to figure out the right order... sometimes I even get it right..:)

It's not what you know that counts, its who you know. This is an understood rule in the world and has been as long as I can remember.

Partial reason for a non-qualified, incomptent buffoon reaching the highest levels of incomptency.

Just never thought it would happen at the leadership of our nation.

That's what I was thinking when corn made his comment. Only the fools need to "work" or those without the right birth. Smart guys don't.
I guess that all depends upon what your definition of "work" is......

I awake eager to perform my job duties and leave the office with a sense of accomplishment. I would never confuse my job with "fun", however that doesn't mean that I don't have fun at my job.

Your contention that smart guys don't need to work is a fallacy. Of course smart guys don't need to work. A smart guy could simply live off the land to survive.....however that does entail a certain amount of work. A smart guy might be able to eke out a meager existence working the welfare system.....oops, did I say "working"?

No Zebo, fact is that smart guys do "need" to work. Maybe not all smart guys work in the "corporate world", but they all do work in some way or another. A smart guy like me will retire from the corporate world sooner than most, but I do plan to still work even after I retire.

Tell him you're a farmer and raise among other veggies, corn?.
I certainly hope he only raises corn and does not harvest them??:(

I do enjoy a Lamb Duo, Loin Roulade with Tapenade and Braised Lamb Short Ribs with Smoked Bacon and Rosemary Crisp Potatp Gnocchi, Spring Vegetable Pearls and Natural Reduction 1997 Vinyare Reserve, Napa Valley followe bu Coacoa French Meringue & Stone Fruit Compote with some Zinskey Late Harvest.
Yum. I haven?t had lamb for over 2 years now. Unfortunately I?ve fallen victim to seeing the little critters playing at a farm in Sonoma (my employer had a conference there, why? I don?t ask those questions?.) and every time I pass those tasty looking chops at the meat counter, I get visions of little lambs running around on a grassy knoll?? I can?t bring myself to eating veal either. I guess I?m just a big ?ole softie in my old age?..

Rathergood.com is a very bizarre website that won an internet award for originality and satire.
theres an absolutely horrible sendition of Simply Red's 'Holding Back the Years'.
It looks like Bush, but is UNLINKABLE from here. Own Risk ! Be Warned.

There is some funny stuff there though, some posted before.

I was only seven and was trying to emulate you... just like the yellow snow you said was mother nature's snow cone... No wonder mom always said "Moonbeam... put him down right now... I mean it..... not on his head... moonbeam... go to your cage":)
