The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

(Relatively) short and sweet:

THE GOOD: Jack Benny, arguably -- but not with me -- one of the greatest comedians ever, was born on this date in 1894.

THE BAD: The infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre took place on this date in 1929.

...and THE UGLY: It's that time of year again. St. Valentine's Day. So la-dee-da and whoopie-doo, fellow babies.

And as I've said before, if you're one of those people who say "Valentimes," knock it the f**k off.

This is a very important point with me, because I'm such a sentimental guy and all.

Yeah, right.

My unsolicited advice to you on this day: If anyone gives you roses, watch out for the thorns.

(Take that any way you want to.)

Thanks for your time.

People... say... valentimes??

::cringes::

Good Lord! That is definitely rant-worthy, not to mention v-day itself (I can't even bring myself to say it).

Every rose has it's thorn.

I have never heard anyone say that. Maybe a local thing?

Damn, and I thought I was bitter about this day this year.

I bought chocolate for all the wee ones. It is funny how this day gets worse as you grow up. Everyone gets cards in preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade. As you get older, you either get a lot or none. You get older yet. And only your best gay friends are giving you candy.

Thank God for gay guys, they save my esteem! I got chocies from each of them. Hugs from each of them. And each one told me I am fabulous.

Though I did get some looks from the other guys too. It was wear pink in work day and the only pink sweater I have is rather low cut. Maybe it was that I forgot to wear a shirt under it. Nice to know they still enjoy the view.

I hadn't done anything 'bout V-day since( well, a looong time ago ) til last year( in which I received one, quite unexpectedly ). Of course I had to reciprocate...but it was for a good cause.

Redbeard and Ishat:

1."People... say... valentimes??"

2. "I have never heard anyone say that. Maybe a local thing?"

Yup. They do. (It's like saying "ax" instead of "ask," or "excape." People don't freqkin' pay attention!) And sadly, it's not confined to this region. Chelsea Handler (of Chelsea Lately) has corrected her guests when they've said it! And her TV show is based in L.A.!

Ishat:

"Every rose has its thorn."

Yeah. And I was speaking literally and metaphorically, of course.

"Everyone gets cards in preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade."

Right. The teachers take a good look around the classroom, and think, "Okay, we'd better make this mandatory! Everybody gives to everybody, 'cause it'll be the only chance that some of these poor sumbitches will ever get one!"

"It was wear pink in work day and the only pink sweater I have is rather low cut. Maybe it was that I forgot to wear a shirt under it."

Sorry I missed that... or should I say "those?"

SubTorp:

A "good cause," meaning... ? Ah. I get it.

In "People don't freqkin' pay attention!" the "freqkin'" was obviously a typo. I'm sure you all caught that. Or weren't you paying attention?

subtorp77 said...

I blame it all on text-messaging and just plain laziness. And David, I'll explain it all, anon. you may be surprised( and that's not a typo-you know I use both English forms, wot? )

David'Z RantZ said...

I'll listen to anything you want to tell me if you bring coffee!

Good thing there's a DD right round th' corner. I'll make up for my lack down, from week last. No. Really.
