Courtesy of friend and blog reader Steve Denney. 23 COMMENTS Thank you! This made my morning. Two noisy, inebriated bookends walked into a quiet bar and held sway (parenthetically speaking). Maybe just me, but I quit about halfway thru the list. On the other hand, a horse walked into a bar. Bartender said “hey buddy, why the long face?” Mas, your friend Steve Denny’s verbiage was impressive; however, I’ve found no dents or other impressions on my brain or outer body! Most welcome after a fruitless morning at VA. Thank you! Wish I had had this when I was still teaching English. This is going out to my writer’s critique group. My afternoon as well. Gosh. I thought this was a parody about all the people testifying or asking questiond at the Impeachment hearings. Lol. After all these years, my masters in English is justified. You must have a hell of a time getting through TV commercials, eh? 🙂 I don’t know who the worst offenders of the language are — local newscasters or actors in commercials. its the writers behind them, you know the wuns thet dun bin ta cawlidge….. its all some antics, anyway. Yeah, this helped a little after an otherwise lousy day. You realize that few folk under 20 years age will have the foggiest notion…,, My wife is a technical writer and she got a kick out of this. Thanks Mas and Steve. Pretty creative. Awesome, thanks for the laugh – but as Jo Ann said, it will probably be lost on the young. My grandmother-in-law was a very nice lady who lived to 96, and she was full of malaprops . My favorite was she was always taking out the ‘refuge’ Germany. 1943. Two Nazis walk into a BAR… Mick, That’s a good one! it was a VERY short walk, and from a long ways away. John Moses would have been glad to know…… You’ll have to dumb the above down a little for this dyslexic, illiterate left-handed Australian 😉 Of cause you heard about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac – stayed up all night wondering if dog was real. Very funny! I got maybe 2/3 of them. I should probably brush up on my grammar. 3 German soldiers walked into a BAR. Entertaining. Thanks Mas Comments are closed.
