Offal. From our local Comic Gazzette Newspaper.

Corey Lunquist made his girl friend mad so she put a bag of waste animal parts under the rear seat of his car.
A week later it smelled offal and had magnets.

Would Post #4 be considered a catachresis?

Definition #2 -- rubbish; refuse: Obama's Illusory Student Loan Scheme . Obama's illusory student loan program is offal that was slipped into the Obamacare Bill because it would never have garnered the 60 votes needed to pass on its own. Remeber Nancy's infamous words? "We have to pass this Bill to find out what's in it."

Well, that offal had better have had magnets in it ....otherwise, all the offal would o'fallen off from underneath the car.

Don’t we have an offal teleprompter-in-chief?

I know the use of a teleprompter has been criticized but would you really want these people relying on their own intelligence. Remember Joe Biden doesn't use a teleprompter. What more needs said?

If you do offal right, it’s called “sausage”.

Speaking of which, tomorrow is band hoagie day and I’ll be home by lunchtime. It’s about 85 degrees here now, I hear we may be an inch of snow on the ground when I get there.

I will miss tonight’s big game. Final game of the regular season and the hometown team hosts their archrival. Both are undefeated. Winner gets the conference crown and a boost into the playoffs.

It is almost too chilly to go commando, but I’m wearing jeans, so okay-64 and clear here, and it is supposed to be near to freezing tomorrow morning.

With squatters in NYC creating
Enough offal to really spoil it
I wonder why their organizers
Won’t rent even one portable toilet

It isn’t as if they cost much-
But maybe they’d take funds away
From buying the sheeps’ milk cheese
That was getting served each day

Now the whiners eat brown rice
Since street people wanted a share-
Now REAL needy people showed up
But the whiners didn’t want them there...

Wow.....you nailed them. A+++++

I just noticed while cruising through a flood ravaged street in Vestal that they put portapotties on every corner.....there were very few houses with electric and even they only had the front porch lights on...no one living there yet. Very sad.

My Jayhawks beat their arch-rival, 13-10. Kicked 2 field goals, which never happens. I can’t remember ever seeing this team kick a field goal and I’ve been watching them play for 12 years. Usually they score touchdowns and the extra point is a crapshoot.

Defense came up big. Seniors beat the rivals for the first time in their careers. Now we should play a cupcake in the first round.

Best of luck to her. I drove home with wet snow most of the way, but the roads were just wet. There is an inch or two on the ground.
