Morning Peeps! Get to class! It’s almost the weekend!
There once was a lad whose cognomen seemed much like a sign or an omen. As he sat down to dine he spotted a sign, "Dogs dodge you, Bark Obamen."
Bark, a PERFECT cognomen for Barrack. LMAO A+++
Willard Mitt Romney ===> Myth ===> Flipper ===> Etch-a-Sketch
Baraq Hussein Obama ===> The One ===> Marxist-in-Chief ===> Tyrant ===> Puppy Gourmand-in-Chief
Gingrich =====> Speaker ===> Sole Conservative
Sarah Palin =====> Governor ===> Advocate ===> Wise Woman
“Bark” would be his DOGnomen .... we’re not sure if his cognomen is really Obama, Soetoro, or Dunham.
You forgot the “-”. It’s Co-Gnomen. After it snows, when you make two or more Frosties.
This just arrived from the editorial desk of the Atkinsonville Graphic Wind.
“Stand back ya flatlanders! I got this COGNOMEN.
Simply geography it is. Just those guys living if Africa in someplace where the food is bad, I mean the Beltchin Cogno.
Cognomen. Cogno Drums. Cogno Line dancing (not me but some of the guys when they got a skin full ol’ BlinderFust.”
"Well check this out, bodyguard youre fired. And I hope his wife sends him to the doghouse. As long as hes not eating the dog, along with his former boss. Greta, you know, a lot of people will just, I guess say that this is boys being boys. And boys will be boys, but they shouldnt be in positions of authority.
To be fair, going to Colombia and not sampling the hookers and blow is like going to Idaho and not having any potatoes!
Those who've always fantasized about seeing certain Steelers wearing stripes will be pleased once or twice this season!
This ping to my cognomen just showed up.
Low 709’s and cloudy-I hope it rains...
Obama’s new cognomen could
Be “pariah” by the election-
Even some ‘rats are quietly
Withdrawing their protection
Between Obamascare and Keystone
They’d rather be incognito-
The first he insists is legal,
The second he says he’ll veto
He’s insulted the supreme court
By questioning their knowledge-
The way he talks, you wonder what
He really learned in college...
He just can’t help but let his alligator mouth overload his hummingbird ass, teleprompter, handlers and all.
At least Bill Clinton wasn’t a loose cannon-he knew how to make a speech that didn’t invite flames from all sides...
Oops! Low 70’s-709 might be comfortable on Mercury...
A+++ for everyone today...pass them on. Too nice out to sit grading papers.
