The Bill Polians vs. The Dancing Toms: Rooting interest aside, on paper, which is where games are played unless you're firing up a copy of Madden, this is one fucking close matchup. Which means, given the statistical disparity of, say, last year, we'll probably have a rout one way or the other, possibly, it may seem to be, coming down to the deft over and/or underuse of, indubitably, commas, that most magical, some say, of punctuational markings. Oh, the game, I suppose, Colts, thirty-one, to, twenty, oh, seven, I guess.

Comma comma comma comma comma chameleon
You come, and go, you come, and, go,

Hey, you two, you're fucking everything, um, up.

Does anyone remember orthography?

Who ever wins Archie will be happy.

Hey, jerkface -- you said the Saints would lose and now they're in the Superbowl. Why should I believe anything you say again, ever?

okjimm said...

OK. Gimmee the Saints and 4 points, 5 pints, two joints,three shots of tequila a bag of chips and some dip. And none of that stupid artichoke dip all the wives see to be making.

Graves, you swine!

Is football the game where the Baptists try to forget that these hulking, sweaty, ass-patting men are handling pig skin on the Sabbath?

What's next? cards? dancing? Oh, the shame of it all.

Once it was Up With People at half time and we laughed. Now it's the shadow of the Who. What next, Lawrence Welk? For once I grant your preference for heavy metal.

Hmmm.. I have a sneaking suspicion that this post was about sports.
Since I don't speak sport.. I'll just take my "sensitive self" outta here.
If I'm not back for a few days .. just assume I'm giving you the finger. :P

holte, what about Jughead?

übermilf, if you're stupid enough to listen to me about anything outside of being a jerkface, that's your fault.

okjimm, I figure if I'm baked enough, artichoke dip might not seem that bad.

tengrain, it's like Reefer Madness on steroids!

susan, if the bigwigs had access to a Delorean and could bring back the Who circa 1971, I'm so on board. Betcha it's the Stones for Super Bowl L.

sunshine, I'm used to getting the finger from myriad sources, go right ahead. ;-)

Orthography -- that was my best subject in high school. I think.

Either that, or it's those metal braces that gawky teenagers have on their teeth.

Demeur said...

Booooo! I just got your joke. Is it time for my linguistic prescription now? Look that one up in your Wiki.

Beach Bum said...

This is where I usually make some comment about how Eli Manning should die a bloody and painful death. Consider it done.

Randal Graves said...

tom, no, no, that's angioplasty.

demeur, I'm not sure a linguistic prescription is the way to go. All that ink can't be good for the arteries.

BB, see that limb? I'm going to go out on it and declare to the world that you don't like Eli Manning.

Orthography? Like you know any thing about the accepted usage of the language. ;o)
