The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
The canaille of Venezuela are bereft that their dear leader can't be put on permanent display.

No pushing at the door please!
I’m less than jovial this AM since i received a ticket from a DC cop first thing as i was attempting to turn into my parking garage for failure to yield to pedestrians in the crossswalk. $250.
Good morning! So sorry, butsomebody has to pay for the canaille of the DC work force!
So, if your dogs ate your store-bought round Italian noodles, are they newly canned caninined canolio’s?
A++ where are you these days robt?
Sorry to hear that on what is otherwise a lovely spring day. ;-)
it’s snowing here.
Yes, that was sarcasm. 2 hour delay here. Snow and sleet changing to all rain later.
oh thought maybe you guys were having a nice day!
The Benghazi brouhaha doesn’t bother the low-information voters, but those of us who are interested in the truth have been asking:
“Canaille get a witness?”
My paternal grandparents were born in Budapest. As I recall, “the best capusta” is an oxymoron, like “the best kimchi.”
Your family can count it as penance! ;-)
i am not a fan of sauerkraut and never have been but this stuff was good! it had obviously been cooked for hours with kielbasa in it, and there were chunks of it all through it. i like cabbage, but am not a big sauerkraut eater.
The devil in The Bible series compared to the devil in the WH. Coincidence?
Pittsburgh today actually. Been in a plant over on the Monongahela River for a short repair outage, but only since Thursday.
Be flying out later this evening/tonight after the office planning meetings.
“Have hammer, canaille”
errr...ahhh.....resume’ that would be.
A+++ an uplift when i really needed one, thanks... ;)
Sorry to hear about the ticket. They caught you when you weren’t on your game to talk your way out of it. The skies opened up here right when I got to the car at the end of my jog. I think I need to go buy a lottery ticket.
I’m confused. If you take your dog to the doggy dentist, does he get a root canaille?
at least i didn’t belligerantly say, OH REALLY? no one yields to me when I AM in the crosswalk around here! but i was thinking it!
You showed admirable restraint.
Beverage of the Canaille?
Oh, no-is there no way out of it? $250 is enough to put the hurt on one in these bad times...
The emperor’s indifference
Ought to be squelched down-
There are hard working people
In the boonies, and in every town
Who struggle to make ends meet
While he flies around to play
And waves to all the canaille
Who gather all along the way
He gives them bread and circuses
But still they bitch and squall
While all our meager earnings
Are taxed to pay for it all...
As my compadre and I wait with no funds and held breath for a work contract-I had the metal and old heavy rock-with deafening bass-cranked all weekend till evening, but I’m my pragmatic self now...
I guess it could be worse. At least we’re not Cyprus.
The canaille of the Senate should be dealt with like any other feral pack terrorizing citizens...
I think they nailed it in their portrayal of The Accuser, The Deceiver, The Father of Lies, Sower of Discord, and Temptor.
It's a shame it wasn't tanktop weather.
it was probably the Romney/Ryan sticker still on your car that did it.
At least not yet...
that they did......that is one scary face. so is the other one...
Are you serious? That is just too spooky.
The feral dogs that are sometimes in the woods here have better manners than most of that pack...
Interesting that the Devil appears wearing a hoody.
I caught the resemblance while watching last night, and had to laugh at what has got to be the producers’ sense of humor.
Color me shocked — shocked! — to find out the turnpike commission is corrupt.
i can’t believe it’s DEMS... ; )
no political stickers, just prolife plates and magnets from my kids schools. i would be keyed to ribbons in that garage if i had a romney sticker. recall i was berated in the street by the belligerant lib over the Bush Cheney sticker several years back?? as it is i have been keyed and all i can figure is its the prolife plates. or a Georgetown fan : ) There is actually a car in there parked not too far from me with a HOYA02 license plate, i snapped a pic of the license plate and sent it to my family and said, well here’s a prime suspect in the keying of my car in this garage...
Patronage works in PA cause both parties share more or less equally.
What’s remarkable here is that the newly elected Atty General (Dem) is moving forward with this.
The cynic in me makes me wonder what she plans on doing to Corbett or the GOP later.
oh and i do have a YINZ magnet on my car as well...
