Michelle Obama displays all of the elegance of a Billingsgate fish-wife.

Michelle's vapid followers, like those who idolize Hillary, would be shocked to hear their language during discussions with their respective (not "respectable") husbands.

Seems the only way left to describe that Despot-in-Chief is using the billingsgate vernacular that my folks forbade in their household.

Four-letter words, hyphenated words, billingsgate. No other way to describe these tyrants.

Some old-time comedian used to say:

My wife’s credit card was stolen. I didn’t report it to the police because the crook spends less than she does.

I’m going to get my teeth cleaned. Anyone who needs me, just check in with the NSA. They probably know which of my teeth has too much plaque.

Stealing glib taglines (e.g. about the Gangliest Lib in the W/H) and trying to take stage billing for it can gain you a Billingsgate or two from fellow FR members...

Lots of billingsgate heard in hockey GM offices today since Pitt unbelievably resigned their coach for 2 more years. It looks like a big mistake but their GM was trained by the best.

We postponed our appts for that last week because we just did not want to go through it. And because of the sequester...our budget was impacted and I couldn’t justify the expense.

Does anyone happen to have 4 1-inch carriage bolts? I need them for the truck plates and can’t find any-what passed for a hardware store out here closed last year, and I don’t keep/use bolts like that...

It seems that I am tempted
More than usual these days
To use more billingsgate
To address the dishonest ways

Of the IRS, the NSA,
The list goes on-and so-
Even some leftist loons
Say the emperor should go

The scandals and cover-ups
Have a faintly familiar smell-
I guess next someone will break
Into a Washington hotel...

This is no billingsgate, but one of the wild turkeys that live on this land just came wandering by my picture window with a flock of tiny chicks trailing behind. It was so cute to watch her syncopated stroll, pausing for the babies to catch up.

I doubt that these chicks are more than a day old. You can barely see them in the grass. There are probably a dozen and their prescence is revealed by the grass moving. So, I won’t be mowing out there for a while, after my disaster with the fawn last week.

And I hope that the big, fat coyote I saw out there last week stays far away.

I sometimes go to Home Depot online and make sure they have what I need before I drive the 22 miles to the nearest town that has one.

I wasn’t going to drive the 22 miles, because I just needed those 4 bolts for the license and frame on the truck. Fortunately, I could hear my neighbor’s diesel nearby-he was wiring a livestock shed on the next hill, so I walked up there. He said he has some of those bolts in his shop, and he’ll bring me a few as soon as he is done working for the day.

Leave it to a cat to invent a new way to torment while feigning innocent play-Titus was washing Midget girl’s face, which was nice enough-except that he was holding her on the floor with both paws around her neck while he did-so tightly that she couldn’t move. She finally got tired of it, snarled, broke loose and smacked him. Titus gave me an innocent, wide eyed look and went over to his bowl to eat...

It’s foolish to think such a thing was deliberate. Do you honestly think the league would fail to punish him, of all people, if he had done it on purpose.?

You’re kidding, right? You’ve seen Bertuzzi is still wearing a uniform. I know Erik’s team wasn’t sure it wasn’t deliberate. The point is, he should have been run out of the league a long time ago. Who else gets that many chances, unless you’re a democrat?
