In the old days, when someone wanted you to apologize it was for something you had done to them. And the way it worked was they would ask you for an apology and you would tell them to go screw themselves. But we live in a new age where apologies are done differently. Nowadays, the way apologies work is that you demand that someone you don't personally know apologize to someone else that you don't personally know. This is another form of modern outsourcing and, as such, has become quite the rage in the more technologically sophisticated areas of the United States.
As a result, in order to keep up with the times, I am creating this Apology Thread and starting it off with my own demands for apologies from people I have never met. First, I demand that George Lucas apologize to Star Wars fans for writing and directing Stars Wars Episodes 1, 2 and 3 and that he further apologize to movie fans in general for producing Howard the Duck. Second, I demand that Norm Coleman apologize to the good people of the state of Minnesota for losing to Al Franken in the 2008 senatorial race. And because this race had national implications, Norm Coleman may want to consider expanding his apology to include the citizens of all these United States. Third, I demand that Madonna apologize to Kabbalah worshippers for joining their religion and thereby making a mockery of it.
Now that I have issued my apology demands, I would like to invite my fellow freepers to issue their own apology demands to people they don't know.
And lastly, because I don't want this post to end on a purely negative note, I would like to personally thank Mitchell Mortaza for founding the Women's Lingerie Football League. Mitchell, if you are reading this, I just want to say "Never Give Up! Never Surender!"
No hero I.
I wish the opportunity had presented itself...
Oh, it did, but I had just spent ten years convincing
myself that I actually HAD a future and just couldn’t
see spending it in prison.
I took some consolation from the fact that bad people
if they live long enough, usually disgrace themselves
and come to a bad end anyway. Even botox can’t hide
the ravages of her conciousness.
Still, I could have been the idol of millions of vets.
Now I’m just another ageing warrior, maybe I’ll become
a buddhist priest...
“Women’s Lingerie Football League”
Is that FLAG or full contact?
Either works for me.
apology accepted in advance.
If they wear more then one gold chain while doing it then they need to apologize twice.
You two are KILLIN’ me!
They are my all time fave, but, I agree with you.
“Father Christmas” is a little hard to take...
As is “Humbug”
Seen them thrice live, just great.
I worked on his car in the late 70’s his plate was YRUFAT and he had a stuffed pig in the front seat major league FAG
You said “dago.” Who are you calling a dago? Apologize at once.
It sure does.....
First I ever heard of him was on the soap opera, General Hospital. He was on for a few months in the late ‘70’s just as the whole Luke & Laura affair was heating up.
Set off my gaydar immediately, though I will admit buying his first diet book.
I apologize for that!!
(Did you feel the need to shower after working on his car??)
Well, by implication, because of your skin color, regardless of whether your ancestors were even in this country when slavery was practiced but instead were virtual slaves themselves in the "old country", you are still guilty.
So, suck it up and out with the apology. And while you're at it, get out the pocket book and fork over the financial reparations that you don't owe.
Could we have the mods apologize for simply not zotting them?
No not really but I did do a something rude with the stuffed animal to the delight of my co workers (Simulated of course)
I apologize for not pinging you to this thread.
I have an excuse!
I demand that all FReepers who’ve EVER posted that picture apologize to the rest of the world for the pain and suffering caused.
And while they’re at it, financial restitution is required. I’ll be setting up a Pay Pal account to collect the funds......
Don’t forget those same people who wore the leisure suits must apologize for those white loafers and belts. I am still offended by that.
I, on the other hand, have nothing to apologize for as I have led a clean and spotless life! (really I have) :”)
I’ve already heard that there is concern US citizens are using non-paper, non-plastic, reusable shopping bags that are unsanitary and may present a danger to other US shoppers. Maybe we need to start a new thread.
Good job, man!! We salute you. :-)
Thought you all might enjoy this.
