Nessa said...

That's fine. It's a god excuse for me not to do anything constructive today.

"Why aren't you doing the laundry?"

"I can't. Doug hasn't posted his story yet."

I leave the next line up to your imagination. Hint: It might involve some curse words.

Nessa said...

Did you notice my Freudian typo?

Steve Pascover said...

Typo? I thought Doug was getting the respect he deserved

the amoeba said...

Sounds more like the
Devil made you do it, Nessa. But, of course, the Devil is a god. Which raises the musical question, 'How can any religion with a Devil in it be called monotheistic?' Unless, of course, you're dancing to his satanic majesty's requests.

Happy ritin', puppy.

TLP said...

Amoeba, how can a religion with a trinity be called monotheistic?

the amoeba said...

Not to mention Michael, Gabriel, and the whole rest of that crew with wings and trumpets, TLP ...

Nessa said...

Pagananity is not dead.

TLP said...

So, it's to be a Sunday service this week, huh, Doug?

Doug said...

OK, Nessa. Time to wash. I assume you meant a "gorillish excuse."

Pop, I don't get that much respect from my family.

Lookie here, Amoeba, you do the classical languages, I'll handle the theology.

TLP, how can Unitarians not be?

Amoeba, you're naming the Monkees now?

There's a pagan under every bed, Nessa.

Nope, TLP, you just lost faith a bit early this week.

TLP said...

Okay. It was worth waiting for. I guess you can't hurry art.

Unitarians are monotheistic. Sort of. In a pagan kinda way.

the amoeba said...

The flying Monkees, Dawg. Had the Wicked Witch of the West thought of this, Dorothy would have surrendered the silver/ruby slippers PDQ.

Nessa said...

So many good lines in this week's installment.

I think the Brewmaster may be a Pentecostal.

Frau Braun is in trouble now. Witches are not harmless or forgettable, porcine or not.

"...that boy can hide in his own shoes." I like that. I kinda relate to that:)

Great installment!
(And it waited for me)

I'm off topic but I wanted to share this Irving Layton quote. It seems so appropriate with the theme of this blog:

"Since I no longer expect anything from mankind except madness, meanness, and mendacity; egotism, cowardice, and self-delusion, I have stopped being a misanthrope"

"Our life is what our thoughts make it." ~ Marcus Aurelius Antonius


"The person who sends out positive thoughts activates the world around him positively and draws back to himself positive results." ~ Norman Vincent Peale


"The soul attracts that which it secretly harbours; that which it loves, and also that which it fears; it reaches the height of its cherished aspirations; it falls to the level of its un-chastened desires. Every thought-seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own furtive of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit; bad thought, bad fruit." ~ James Allen

Ariel the Thief said...

I have always liked Marcus Aurelius. One of those few people who actually knew what he was talking about, huh?

Cooper said...

it was a great issue this week Doug.

k.a.gardner said...

ok wonderland or not i subscribed to your blog likewise chrysalis stage twice

Doug said...

TLP, sort of a there's no god but God so take your pick sort of thing?

Amoeba, and where would that have left William Jennings Bryan?

Nessa, that was my thought, too. The first of the future primitives.

That's it, Actonbell. I didn't want to post until you were ready.

Karen, that's a fine quote and a pretty good summary of this blog.

Nessa, do you think it works that way for slapstick?

Ariel, you have to destroy many nations to find peace at last.

Thanks, Coop.

Karen, I expect you'll enjoy both.
