I have a dream
“My friends, think me not crazy. Think me not suffering from the delusions of an unstable mind. For never before have I seen with such clarity, such singularity of purpose and vision. My friends, my dream ha skept me awake for many a long night of late. For its boldness consumes me with desire. At times it even excites me to the point of becoming erotic. at times like those I "make friends" and bask in the afterglow of how much more satisfying the deed will be when actually done.
My friends, my dream is this...
To one day devour a kentucky derby winner.
To ingest its magnificent flanks and hindquarters with zealous gusto. To imbibe myself with its thundering power.
Then can I say "I have not lived in vain".”
“whoops, I guess a nine-inch piano wouldnt do me any good.....Bit, what did you mean by not needing a man?”
“1) Visit India
2) Have a son
3) Speak fluent German
4) Write a novel
5) Build my own house”
“And what organ will ya be donating Capn, and to whom?”
I'm feeling philanthropic
“It must be the holidays.
Hey, whatever... to whoever needs it!
(just make sure I'm dead!)”
“sonja's been reading "The Onion" again...
embear, there was a headline a few days ago about some geneticists creating a sperm cell from a stem cell, so in the very near future, true parthenogenesis may be possible. I was implying that you might be able to actually mate with yourself, but that of course is a really bad idea, genetically speaking. Talk about pulling out recessives...
Of course, they could conceivably transform a big batch of your stem cells into sperm cells and then scan them for undesirable recessives...”
pulling out recessives?
“Hey, don't do that! I'd be out a job!!!”
“uhhhh, i think i'll stick with the NORMAL way to reproduce.....”
“That list is completely changeable from day to day, BTW.”
“It's a lot more fun, anyway...”
“I got dibs on one of Bobo's kidneys.”
Maybe I better be more specific
“Eyes - gone
Kidneys - shot
Liver - liver, what liver?
Adrenals - stressed
Heart - spent
Blood vessels - blocked
Brain - hmm????
Lungs - cough cough
GIT - IBS
- anyone want my right toe?”
“I've got enough, thanks...”
“1) Have sex with Reese Witherspoon!”
“Isn't that one of those default options for every straight man? Not like you really have to list it.”
“Embear- a couple of lesbian friends of mine just headed down to their local bank to procure the stuff needed without ever having to involve the man. I think their second child (one each) is due to arrive in the next few weeks.”
“1) become a school teacher
2) move to Maine
3) get married and have kids
4) pay off student loans”
“Yah, but it still takes a man...”
“10. Own a Stinky Cheese store."
ROFL! I don't know why exactly, but that cracked me up.”
“I'd love to one day have a little hostel on the AT up in Maine and serve pancakes to the thru hikers.”
“Awwwww, that's sweet, yam.”
Capn, John Prine has a song for you
“Woke up this morning
Put on my slippers
Walked in the kitchen and died
And oh what a feeling!
When my soul
Went thru the ceiling
And on up into heaven I did ride
When I got there they did say
John, it happened this way
You slipped upon the floor
And hit your head
And all the angels say
Just before you passed away
These were the very last words
That you said:
Please don’t bury me
Down in that cold cold ground
No, I’d druther have "em" cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don’t mind the size
Give my stomach to milwaukee
If they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box
Just get "em" out of here
Venus de milo can have my arms
Look out! I’ve got your nose
Sell my heart to the junkman
And give my love to rose
Give my feet to the footloose
Careless, fancy free
Give my knees to the needy
Don’t pull that stuff on me
Hand me down my walking cane
It’s a sin to tell a lie
Send my mouth way down south
And kiss my ass goodbye
“I never said that I DIDN'T like men! I would like to have a commitment one day with one of them, just waiting for the right one. Hopefully, it will be before I'm 35 and in time to have kids. I still have plenty of time.......”
“i'll let you bake cookies in my hostel. ;-)”
“Now there's an offer you don't get too often Artex!”
“Yam wants Artex to put stuff in her oven?”
“The yam is inherently sweet!
LOL @ Geo!!!”
“LOL! Reminds me of a joke where the punchline is something like..."He was hard of hearing. What I really wanted was a 9 inch..."”
“"All I got was a 9 inch pianist."”
“I'm a 60" pianist! I guess that's not really funny though.”
“cute thou ;o)”
“To wake up smiling when I'm 80
To die with a grin on my face when I'm 81”
“a grin steve? - surely there's better options than that ;o)”
Ahhhh, think about it...
“WHY the grin ;-)”
“ROTFLMAO @ Capn and Geo.....
I actually forgot I posted this earlier.....
Someone in need of an organ
"If I only had a brain, I be a lincoln and do some thinkin, If I only had a brain"
