No pushing at the door please!
good morning. i am somewhat disappointed that the murdering ray lewis was rewarded with a superbowl ring. good for Boomer for bringing up the murders last night. that should not be forgotten.
Do you expect me to argy-bargy over the use of this word as a noun instead of a verb?
only if you can submit proof that it can legit be used as a verb : )

Perhaps it’s just an argy-bargy in my own mind. I’ve only used the word twice in my life, afterall.
Is today “International-Talk-Like-A-Pirate” Day?
Good morning. I’m off to school but will return with homework and to observe the general argy-bargy here.
in your two posts on this thread? LOL, bc i have never used it myself outside of here, it’s a new one on me. A+++
Argy-bargy appears to be the Scottish version of orgey-borgy but I have no idea of what that is either and I'm not going to argue with a guy that wears a skirt and tortures a bag of pipes til it screams.
(p.s. I heard they don't wear anything under them skirts but I don't suggest trying to take a look)

well i wouldn’t look away! ; ) A+++
While there is legitimate argy-bargy about if the best team won, there is no doubt local boy, Arther Jones, had a great game last night. All 3 Jones brothers are successful in sports. Jonny Bones Jones is the Light Heavy Weight UFC Champion and Chandler Jones played his first year as a New England Patriot. Arther’s 108 yard run was awesome.
oops i guess i lost a day.
A+++ i think xshub mentioned him/them yesterday. So what did we think of the commercials? Glad to hear that one of the ones voted worst was the GoDaddy one with I guess Bar Rafaeli kissing the dweeby chubby kid. that was DISGUSTING! we were eating dinner at the time with the TV on and i was the one that said OMG GROSS and everyone else turned to look at it. The clydesdale one made me bawl.
I liked the Clydesdale one, the would have had to be the Rav4 tire one. Really, we ignored the commercials, as most were blah.
good grief, ti...go back to bed, that sentence makes no sense.
What about the guy from Minnesota, the land of ten tousand lakes? All he needed was the fake dreads hat.
agreed - I didn’t think very many of the commercials were good last night - very disappointing.
