2.2 Bits and Pieces

From the March 5 edition of a favorite blog, Wordsmith.org:  Poet Carl Sandburg once described slang as “a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands, and goes to work.” Nothing wrong with words in a tie and suit, but sometimes only slang can do the job.

And a new addition to the Blogs I like list: Photographs, poetry, musings at http://photosbymartina.wordpress.com  Thanks to Pat Bean for mentioning this in the Bean’s Pats section of her blog. 

The following showed up in my spam box from a couple of old sailors hanging out in Mexico.

EIGHT THOUGHTS TO PONDER

Number 8

Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 7

Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Number 6

Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich .

Number 5

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won’t bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

Number 4

Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospitals, dying of nothing.

Number 3

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Number 2

In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought

Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers–what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

– – – and as someone recently said to me:

“Don’t worry about old age–it doesn’t last that long.”

    Love them all- truth can be hilarious- laughing out loud here. I especially like the one about health nuts dying of nothing. I have to run these off- too good. I remember laughing, also, at a book of Churchill’s quotes- so subtle, so appropriate…e.g. At a dinner party a very arrogant lady approached him and said “Mr. Churchill, I believe you are drunk!” He looked her over and said “Yes, Madam- I am drunk and tomorrow I will be sober. You are ugly and tomorrow, you will still be ugly”.

    I laughed outloud at the one – Men have two emotions; Hungry and Horny. Boy, I can attest to that! And as to which comes first, depends on the man! They are all fun observations. I like the one also – Life is sexually transmitted.

    Al,
    There are some gems around, keep digging. And since you got this from others, you won’t mind me re-harvesting.
