Let’s go, gang. Put on your pants and hand in your homework. Or, you can hand in your homework sans-culotte.

Sounds cool!

But it would be hotter if the subject put her pants on.... Or would it?

I went to a class reunion picnic over the weekend and met the best looking girl in the class after me. We hit it off and when I left, she was sans-culottes.

He should have hired Weiner as his secretary.

Obama is sans-culottes and over his head when dealing with Putin. In fact, Putin may have pulled Obamas culottes up over his head.

More proof they are after the sans-culottes. Nonstop barking in this house now, thanks to the thunderstorm. The big dog is wearing his thundershirt, has had 3 benadryl and a xanax and is still barking nonstop. I'm about to lock him in my closet to give him a rest.

Our National Government has been high-jacked by an Unholy Trinity - in the White House - Sans Foy, in DOJ - Sans Loy, and in the Senate, Sans Joy. They are well on the way to turning our once-proud Republic into a Gulag Sans Espérance. In light of their depredations, I have been radicalized and now regard myself as a Sans-Culotte.

My solution to the predicament in which we find ourselves? LTC Allan West, a Patriot Sans Rival, for President and Sarah Palin, une Grande Dame Sans Défaut, for President and Vice-President in 2016. With them at the helm, our Nation would be restored to its former greatness and I would resume my customary role as un Bon Vivant Sans Souci.

When I was a kid those split-skirt casual garments women wore were called “cullotes”-my mom bought matching khaki ones for herself and me-I hated the thing...

Anthony Weiner, sans-culotte
Brought sleaze back again-
Taking gossip and politics
Back into iniquity’s den

Sanford caused a few waves,
He got caught with the goods-
A booty call in Argentina,
And not hiking in the woods

But not since Bill and Monica
Has there been such a scandal-
With sex and public venues just
Almost too amusing to handle...

That poor dog-does taking him into a quiet, dark room help? I’ve never had a dog who did that, but Midget girl howls and runs amok during thunderstorms-if I set her beside me covered with a throw she calms down. I suppose she learned to be afraid out in the woods as a kitten...

I told my neighbor who has a Sheltie that barks non-stop at thunder and lightening about your experience with the thundershirt-she was just about to order one, but decided to wait on it after that...

The world is finding out what all of us here knew from the start of the IRS scandal.

1-It had nothing to do with 2 rogue agents from Cincinnati.
2- It had everything to do with a rogue President from Kenya.

If a republican writes a letter to a page, he is immediately banned for life from public office. But a democrat can drown his mistress, get fellated by an intern, or broadcast pix of his weiner to the universe, and it’s all good, just as long as he promotes the liberal cause. If the left didn’t have the double standard, they’d have no standard at all.

Saved HER $40 not saved for. You can see I’m still bleary-eyed from the noise all morning. Shelties are pretty vocal, as a breed anyway. Pretty but sometimes too yappy.

Thank you! In my teen years I heard from some female relatives that LBJ bordered on being affected with satyriasis-and from what I’ve seen in recent accounts of his life, it appears that he was obsessed with his-johnson. At least he kept it private, unlike Clinton, but that isn’t saying much-compared to that, Sanford was in the amateur leagues-and he wrote really bad poetry to the mistress, too...

Mine doesn’t bark at storms at all. He’ll just go hid in his crate.

He does like to bark at sounds and nearly every time I get up from the couch.

Shelties are so pretty, but they are like my Aussie was-really jumpy and sort of yappy. Husky girl vocalizes a lot, like most of that breed, but she isn’t jumpy, and it is more in the form of “talking” than yapping/barking. She likes to go outside at night with me and howl with coyotes, too.

The glitch is back (one of my fave Elton John songs that Weird Al never made) so forgive me if this has been brought up earlier in the thread. But did y'all know there is a FReeper with this WOTD as her handle? (I don't know if she is a 'her' - but that's what I'm picturing, dammit).
