“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (Kwanzaa and Hanuka, too).  I know I did.  I got one of those Fushigi balls.  There's no mechanism in it at all.  It's just a ball.  Who knew?

People keep saying that thing about Hanukkah. Doesn't anyone know that Hanukkah was three weeks ago?

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I celebrated Ramadan with one of my friends earlier in the year.  I think of it as Super-Lent.

My friend was bored in his religion class and typed this.  Read it.

Hi there! Read the piece. Well honestly, I read about 2/3rds of it. I had trouble getting through it because it reads like it was generated by mad libs. Like the author didn't have a plan or a story so much as he wanted to kill time during class. Sort of like automatic writing - you pen a bunch of it down and then you feel like you got something out, you expressed something, but it's not really good reading.

I do commend you for having the balls to post stuff though - you CREATED something, and that's cool.

But I'd like to read some stuff you wrote that was intended for an audience to read. This reads like filler. And maybe I'm reading into it too much but I'm guessing you were warned that we all have a lot of teeth when it comes to lit critique, so you posted something fluffy so you wouldn't feel bad if it got dissed on? just a guess.

No, the toilet wouldn't have a chance against Christmas dinner.  It can barely manage day-to-day operations.  No, for Christmas, I shat over the cliff behind the house, onto the golf course.  It's just my way of saying Merry Christmas to all, and to all a great heap of my ass nuggets.

I love the way the flushing action generates enough wind to blow the toilet paper about.
