pUnless one shares dark thoughts that come to mind then making light of them is heavy going...although sharing the waving-down of a heaving ocean to hitch a free ride on one's surfboard in a light breeze can be swell. Whistle

It soon comes to light when it dawns upon one that sharing the toil for those game enough to do sol..err..so has a net effect. Dancing Whistle

If all public figures, being bilking birds of a feather, were more solicitous for the welfare of others and didn't ever need duck for cover, then we'd be punable to give 'em a good dressing down.Dancing Whistle

Yeah. Funny how easy it is in life to flip the sides, when there’s an opportunity or necessity, sometimes just for fun... Right?


Too true. Just as it's always open to interpretation, so too is it vastly more than but merely ajar when everyone's got it down pat whilst on the ran-tan; like a good patriot, for them it's open slather.

Popular entertainment opportunity given to indiscriminate hoodlums, by bleeding hearts of all colors, at the expense of innocent storefronts, cars and public property,
to set aright grievances of discrimination.




A riot of colour coming to a store fear..err..near you. Whistle

Whilst ever those cagey and angelic-looking $torefront$ try to project an air of innocence people can $ee through them. Dancing

I once thought my horse was innocent until I heard it had broken into a trot, which left me saddled with worry.

Definition from:The Devil's Dictionary (1911)
First published for letters A-L as The Cynic's Word Book (1906)

Abstainer, n. A weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure. A total abstainer is one who abstains from everything but abstention, and especially from inactivity in the affairs of others.

Said a man to a crapulent youth: " I thought you a total abstainer, my son."
" So I am, so I am" said the scapegrace caught - "But not, sir, a bigotes one"





Tell it like it id..err..is, and if you correct the spelling of "bigotes" and make it "bigoted" instead, there's a drink in it for you. Dancing Whistle

Yeah. It’s too bad, but we live in a tightly-knit society: the affairs of others are too close to ours to ignore them completely...


To simply ignore the affairs of others one needs but hold to a holding off instead of holding off to the holding, the former being abstention par excellence. One always needs beware of those who, when one is telling them something, they so temerariously but momentarily interject with: "Now hold on a moment!"; as to attempt to hold on 'a moment' is an exercise in futility given 'tempus fugit'. Woe betide s/he who ever attempts disproving that time and tide waits for no man...because it won't wash.

Context from:Mark Twain's Notebook Journal Entries 1865-1908

Chapter XX Writing " The Yankee"


By the absence of an irreverent press, Europe for thousand years has existed merely for the advantage of half a dozen seventh-rate families called Monarchs, and some hundreds of riffraff sarcastically called Nobles. Our papers have peculiarity-it is American-it exists nowhere else-their irreverence. May they never lose and never modify it. They are irreverent toward pretty much everything, but where they laugh one good king to death, they laugh a thousand cruel and infamous shams and superstition into the grave,for Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense.
