Practice makes perfect.....post on....
The DOW down 185 is simply a bit of badinage about last night’s speech.
While politicians like to engage in good-natured, and sometimes not so good-natured badinage, anytime our idiot of a VP opens his mouth, you just know that a biden gaffe is imminent. biden
I enjoy listening to the badinage between El Rushbo and Snerdly, even though we only hear one side of the banter.
Ha, that is funny.
Wasn’t in the mood for badinage last night, so didn’t listen to Mr Pupppet.
Since his inaugural rites de passage
Barack has tried class warfare arbitrage
Steal from the makers
And give to the takers
He’s now a laughingstock target for badinage
Move over little dog, a big dog’s movin in.
Uh oh, he got sent to the principal again.
I see two guys who laugh at the idea of Botox!
OMG where has the badinage gone on FR? A thread yesterday about some old woman in the UK tatooing a do not resusitate order on her chest led to some newbie telling me I’ve been useless in this life and my daughter isn’t fit to be a nurse. We need a word about overblown egos and a new group called “right to zot idiots”
Your loveinadge is like badinage medicinage
I laugh in the face of danger, drop ice cubes down the vest of fear.
you’ve GOT to ping that thread.
I just needed to vent - was kind of stunned she would attack like that - obviously she needed to feel important. Thanks though.
Wondering what the lib fallout is from the speech. Haven’t had time to sit still this AM to read it. The rain let up momentarily and i had to hit the grocery store before it started pouring again. Have you checked to make sure your house hasn’t floated off? or maybe MD isn’t getting as much rain as we are. They closed the Beltway for a bit at Alexandria last night and Fairfax Co. Charles Co. and i think Prince William had no school today. The creek down in our neighborhood flooded over and they closed it after i forded it to get to the groc store. Lucky there’s a back way in!
Those tatts are real and people do get them. What was their problem?
I agree, raillery is a cool word too! A+++ i think el rushbo sounds like a fun sort to hang out with!
Paul does some good stand up.
Much ado about Nothing.
slack member is semi-erect today! A+++ ; )
