FREEDMAN, n. A person whose manacles have sunk so deeply into the flesh that they are no longer visible.

2010 Update: A failed mortgagee.

Freedman: Adam

FREEDMAN: With the bailout there are failures? Oh yeah there were. Money grubbing turds!

Talking Heads said...

Watch out you might get what you're after
Cool baby strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait 'til the party's over
Hold tight we're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag; time for jumpin' overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work say baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house S'out of the ordinary
That's right Don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house

No one can get to the point where you burn your paid off mortgage papers.


Ariel the Thief said...

Freedman, someone has lost direction?

Johnny Cash said...

I looked over Jordan and what did i see?

Commin' for to carry me home
There was a band of angels,
a-commin after me
Commin' for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot ...

I liked Morgan Freedman in the Shawshank Redemption.

quilly said...

Excuse me, as soon as I finish vacuuming, fold the laundry, scrub the bathroom, wash the lunch dishes and start dinner, I'll pop back over and tell you exactly what I think of freedmen.

Adi said...

Jim likes freedwomen better! It doesn't matter to me as long as they feed me and take care of the house and Jim.
It seems freedwomen can do that better and cheaper.

k. riggs gardner said...

Are freed women free to hire a cleaning service? Do they have the option of take-out? What about Hunan Chinese delivery?

I love eggplant with garlic sauce for a vegetable side order.

sauerkraut said...

A cousin is soon to marry a guy named Freedman... there's a marriage joke in there somewhere but it's too early in the morn to type it correctly.

k. riggs gardner said...

Actually, S'kraut, it isn't all that early. In fact, I feel beguiling seductive because the dishwasher is running this late at night.

Please remember to tell us all about your cousin in the morn!

TLP said...

Wait! Did I miss something? Are you giving away free men? Got pictures? (Or bank account information....better yet: both)

Doug The Una said...

First and last, maybe, TLP.

It happens, Thom. Live and let steal, I says.

That's a good song, Ms. Heads, and I'm sure very germane.

Not fast enough, Nessa. That much is surely true.

Excellent pun, Ariel.

Johnny, you claim to have written that and the chariot might just bring you back. "I Got Stripes" put your soul in jeopardy already.

Me too, Icy. And in that meteor movie even better.

Quilly, we'll be here when you're ready. Do you mind bringing something from the kitchen, when you come?

Adi, depends on how much they eat. Nice to see you over here.

Karen, your order is ready.

Saurkraut, I'm guessing it'll be his name that changes.

TLP, you didn't get my package?
