Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Obama stands before us, regal, condescending, marmoreal. As my Italian pals in Brooklyn would say, He thinks who-the-hell he is.
To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.
No pushing at the door please!
Good morning, students.
Obama’s personality is marmoreal.
Morning Truthy! Scary biz with muslims killing our diplomats and our state. Dept apologizing for hurt feelings over a film about Mohammed.
Obama is proving that his foreign policy expertese is of a piece with his economics brilliance.
Oh, I see you have already used marmoreal in conjunction with Obama. Great minds...think! LOL
Okay, let me try another one:
All of Obama’s supporters displayed a shocked, marmoreal countenance as their messiah was crushed by a Mormon in the 2012 elections.
Marmo-game, marmo-set, marmo-match.
Way to improve your grade, DB. Let’s hope your prediction comes true.
The Pres_ent behaves so marmoreal
Lofty speeches... smug and sartorial.
But like Clint and the ‘Chair’
There is no “there” there,
As to substance, he’s quite incorporeal.
Walter Sobchak: Also, let's not forget - let's *not* forget, Dude - that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city - that aint legal either.
The Dude: What are you, a [redacted] park ranger now?
Walter Sobchak: No, I'm...
The Dude: Who gives a [redacted] about the [redacted] marmot!
Great job, Mike.
Marmoreal — that reminds me of my recently completed car trip from Wisconsin to California and back again. Along Highway 80 (west) there are numerous road side billboards touting the enticements of “Little America”, 2 resorts in Wyoming that boast that they have everything a traveler could want. Each sign is different and features a different attraction. One of them proclaims (to the long distance truckers) “17 Marble Showers!”
We actually spent one night at the Little America resort in Cheyenne (because of the signs) and could barely make ourselves leave. It was a little bit of heaven on the Wyoming high plains and quite reasonable in cost. The opportunity to spend another night at Little America is the only thing that would make me attempt that trip again.
A+++ for Marx marmoreally mentoring moron.
