  1. Racist? Why? Is that a watermelon daiquiri he's drinking?

    4. Well, leaving them out like we did is usually a pretty sure bet for pissing 'em off. I'm calling this mission a success.

  3. I was actually in my mid-twenties before I heard that raaaaaaaaaaaaaacist phrase.

    Pam and I were in the French Quarter (actually in Jackson Square), having charcoal drawings done by some guy named Joe (I think it was 10 bucks per). I can't remember his last name, but his first name was Joe (okay...it was Wilson). He had a son he'd named "Apple."

    Really.

    Apple. Really.

    He was as funny as hell, and while doing his work, he let that one slip...told about that night that an old hippie hooked up with blackness, etc.

    I've thought about that many times since.

    I guess I'll have to trust ol' Joe on that one...

      About old hippies hooking up with blackness? I MIGHT could tell a story in that space. But I WON'T.

  7. Personally, I would have preferred, "How'd you like this torch up yer ass?", but I suppose that would have made it less publishable.

    1. That would depend on where you want to publish it.

  8. Buck - I like your final suggested version much better. And I do like the "...commie switch to Romney" bit. Good humor.

    And I don't mind babe. Just don't call me honey or sweetie.

    1. Uh-oh. I use "sweetie" a lot, and sometimes I'm not even bein' sarcastic.

    2. "Sweetie" is for old ladies. I'm with Kris on this one.

  9. That could be a regional thing for me Buck; men here in the liberal wasteland don't use sweetie as any sort of endearment, unless they are married to the woman.

  10. Okay, here's the deal. Down South you'll rarely hear a man use the terms "Sweetie," "Hon," and honestly, NEVER "Toots."

    The gals on the other hand..."Sweetie," "Hon," and "Sugar," are commonly used by the gals (regardless of the gender of the person they are addressing).

    Now, older gentlemen (such as myself) will use "Sugar" when speaking to a lady...but usually just to a young lady that is either a daughter, or views you as a father figure. It's impolite to address someone near your age, or older that way...unless it is your wife/girlfriend/mistress/whatever.

    Glad I could clear that up.

    1. OK... that's Down South, the last bastion of real manners and stuff like that. Or so I'm told. But us western dudes use "Sweetie" in casual conversation with female types that we know fairly well, not with strangers. Speakin' for Present Company, of course.

  11. Yeah, in grade school we took "manners learnin'." And, EXTREMELY OLD LADIES gave us the skoolin'.

    God, I love, and miss those old ladies. They learnt me to be the man I'm iz!

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
