lawful: I am fine with it. As long as it is natural law we are talking about! Divine, common or canon-I deem open for interpretation!

Minka said...

And just to annoy: here is a lovely quote by the Narnian Guy C.S Lewis:
“If war is ever lawful, then peace is sometimes sinful”
I likes it!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

What is deemed lawful by the current administration is frequently an infraction of our liberty.

Tom & Icy said...

We'd have to consult Mireille Zockso about that.

Sar said...

I've got a case of the giggles! That image you added, Doug, reminds me of Mel Brooks playing Moses in this scene from History of the World: Part I:

Moses: The Lord, the Lord Jehovah has given unto you these fifteen...

*drops one of the tablets*

Moses: Oy! Ten! Ten commandments for all to obey!

Doug said...

Monika, well done and a good start for the day. I miss C.S. Lewis. Today's theologians all seem to be writing What Would Jesus Eat: Lose Weight the LORD's Way and Loaves and Fishes: The Scriptural Keys to Making Millions in Time Shares.

Careful, TLP they know your address.

Icy, the lawful exercise of aromatherapy? Kidding, Mireille, xoxo

Sar, that movie had a lot of memorable moments, didn't it? Thanks for the laugh.

Lawful, adj. Conforming, sanctioned, or recognized by the established body of custom, rule or natural law of that big guy in the corner holding the cudgel.

mireille said...

Yes, Mireille Zockso sees all, knows all ... and can put a somewhat legal spin on it. Aromatherapy, mmmmmmmmmmmm. Adultery and warrantless searches: depends on which president you're adhering (heh) to. xoxo

ariel said...

dddragon said...

Is it lawful to post a comment three times in a row?

If you're not lawFUL you might be lawLESS. oh - wait, that's an actress ...

Something that has a letter in it (although I’m not quite sure which one), as well as a spirit that everyone seems to forget about or just ignores.

Lawful?... Isn't that a Bill O'Reilly fetish thing?

AsianSmiles said...

word used to define 'good' by those who do not use the word 'holy'. (peace sign...dons armor suit and hides under the table).

Doug said...

Miz B, just remember to hide the bodies according to environmental regulations.

So, a4g, it's like fearful?

Very clever, my paralawful friend.

Ariel, the first one comes free with a motel room.

Dddragon, our new citizen get's posting privileges for a day. I'll let your baby sister comment on Xena.

Maybe in Egypt, Marwa ;-)

Jamie Dawn, aren't you going to stand up for your guy? The pinkos are running riot!

Manchego, can that be used for cheeses, too?

Aptly explained, Anonymous.

Actonbell, YOU...You...aw geez. It seems Reverend Beecher could have been referring to his own profession.

Masil, I love the word Mulligan. I've never golfed in my life but I take Mulligans all the time.

TLM, I'm pretty certain it isn't.

Asiansmiles, I love it. No need to hide. Come out. We won't hurt you. Honest.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Oh, I'm so jealous of what omnipotentpoobah said... *sulk*

Wish I'd thought of that.

Doug said...

Haha, Poobah

Fred, you can always sue 'em.

Alice, you and Actonbell should straigten out your stories.

Logo, so is the prohibition of unreasonable searches.

Karma, we'll keep a candle lit.

Aral, your blogbrother is glad to see you.

TLP, how was supper, though?

Nony Mitchell said...

Morning...thought I would check in this morning...I am supposed to be getting ready for work...but hey, sometimes we have to bend the normal a bit...hmmmm, I guess in some interpretations that makes me a bit unlawlful, because I don't care

Doug said...

Ariel, where are you going?

Spiritdancerq, there's no law says you have to care. Or if there is, I wish someone had told me by now.

ariel said...
